This is the place to stay in Naples as you are near all the sights and the buzzing street life as well as the best pizzerias and trattorias.

“Fantastico”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

Napoli is Napoli. If you have the chance go lost in the little streets around via toledo. Yes indeed, pay attention as in every big historical center but you can enjoy nice views of narrow streets colored by clothes drying outside the windows.

“Just like the films”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

It is wonderful to walk the narrow streets of the Centro Storico. If you do not have time, take a taxie a and see the maze, the masses of people, the clothes hanging to dry. You will feel in the middle of one of the old Italian movies.

“Not to miss”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

We loved to walk the old streets of the Quarteri Spagnoli (especially Via Toledo and Chaia), visit the Duomo, Palazzo Reale, Castel Nuovo, and the beatiful enclosed Galleria Umberto I shopping area.
We had a cappucino at Café Gambrinus and had lunch at Hosteria Toledo where food was very reasonably priced and good.
We didn't like some areas were not well illuminated or neat. The old part of the city had many drying cloths on the balconies.
