We stayed in Naples to use it as a jumping-off point for day trips to Pompeii, Herculaneum, and the Amalfi Coast. The Hotel San Giorgio is 5 minutes from the train station, so it served our purposes. The area is really not nice, but if you are planning to come back before dark from your excursions, as we were, you can't beat the location. I don't think I would recommend staying in this area if you are single women.
As for the hotel itself, we were very pleased. You have to be realistic when booking a budget hotel. The room was small, clean enough, and with a private bathroom. Yes, the shower doors fall off, and the air conditioning isn't great, and the area is loud and ugly. BUT you get a great buffet breakfast to start your day - unlimited cappuccino, espresso, etc, bread, croissants, two kinds of meat, cheese, jam, honey, cereal, juice. A quick walk to the train station, and you start a great day of exploring Italy. Wifi is free for one hour a day. Desk service in the hotel was good - maps, calling a taxi, quick help with an electrical problem (that I caused). This is a BUDGET hotel, and was a fine choice for us.
