In the historic center of Naples there is a tendency to want one of the very nice hotels that face the sea. However, the Quartieri Spagnoli (Spanish Quarters) up hill from the Via Toledo is where life is lived on the streets, Neopolitan is spoken and the laundry hangs from balconies. The streets are narrow and there are more motorbikes than cars. This hotel has locally made, somewhat dated furnishings, quiet rooms with free (spotty) wifi and a high level of cleanliness. A minor quibble is that the towels were fraying. The management is friendly and knows the quarter well. The streets are safe, thoug Naples is largely poor and reasonable prudence is advised. Very near the Via Toledo stop of hte Metropolitana (subway) that is the most beautiful subway station I have seen. The subway is quick, safe and 1.30 euros.
