The hotel is very close to the train station making it excellent for getting around. The area may not be the smartest but that is the same for most areas around main train stations. As a large group we felt safe enough moving around the area and the large number of police who seemed to stay and eat at the hotel made it feel even safer! Naples is not the tidiest of cities so just don't expect too much and you won't be disappointed.
The staff were all friendly and helpful making several calls for us to sort out transfers and lost phones as well as recommending a great restaurant. There were 9 of us wanting 5 rooms and they were a mixture. All were very clean with comfy beds and and the double glazing almost completely shut out any road noise. Two of us were given one of the newly renovated rooms - more in the style of a boutique hotel than the standard rooms we had - a real experience if you get one of those. The general decor in the hotel can only be described as eclectic - a real mix of class, kitsch and the plain bizarre.
We were also impressed with the breakfast - fresh croissants, yogurts, cheese, meats, cereals, coffee, tea, bread, boiled eggs.
This may not be the poshest hotel in Naples but as far as location and value for money you can't go far wrong.
