“good value, good location, clean and safe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

The hotel lies on the edge of the historic center, so it's 5-10 minutes walk right to the center. It has a metro station very near (Universita metro station, 2 minutes walk - note that to get on the metro line all the way to this station, you need to switch platform at Dante station, at least for now), so you can reach it by metro from Garibaldi train station (with changes), as well as bus stops (R2 line from Garibaldi, 5 or 6 stops) on the main street of Corso Umberto, and it is also walking distance to one of the central bus stations at the port (we took bus to Amalfi from there). The street and the area felt very safe, also at night, which is very important in Napoli.
The interior of the hotel is very modern, and looks like it was recently renovated. The rooms are very spacious, convenient and clean, and the bed was enormous and very comfortable. There is a minibar, free Wifi, safe, some control panel that gives you information about the weather as well as control of the A/C, and we even had a small balcony (though not one you can sit in) facing the street, and there was no noise at night. There is also a nice common terrace.
Breakfast was the usual croissants, toasts, flakes etc. Not stunning, but on par with our expectations for a solid and filling breakfast.
Hotel staff was very kind, however we didn't challenge them with any tricky questions, except of public transportation to Vesuv. Also, it seem that in one day (out of 3), the cleaning was not perfect (though still very clean!!) as in the other days.
For the price it cost, this hotel is a good choice. Of course, the balcony could be more inviting, and breakfast more varied, but it is indeed a great value for the cost, and It is definitely recommended.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with balcony

3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

In the darkness of the evening my son and I arrived at this hotel in Napoli. The street did not look very inviting, but inside it looked OK. We had booked a room with two separate beds, but found two beds made up as a double bed in our room. It took some time before the receptionist with the help of the owner admitted their mistake and gave us sheeting for two separate beds. Otherwise we had no reason to complain. The air conditioning worked well, the bathroom was modern and clean and the breakfast was good. Public transport was available just minutes away from the hotel.

Room Tip: We stayed on the fourth floor and therefore had to use the extremely slow and shaky lift. My advice...

The hotel is very close to the metro and the bus stops. You can walk to the port in minutes. It is central to Naples, and the transport facilities are close. The hop on hop off bus even stops 50 metres away from the hotel.
The street the hotel is in looks run down, dirty with lots of rubbish and dog dirt on the pavements. The hotel is however a complete contrast, being refurbished with top quality flooring, tiles and lighting. The staff spoke good English and could not have been more helpful. We started in room 205 which quite literally stank of mold and mildew coming from the walk in closet. We moved to a different room which was fine. The rooms were large, a good firm bed, which we loved, and had a great modern bathroom with the usual soap and shampoo. It even had a fridge and a safe in the room. The electronic door lock and information panel is usually found in much more up market hotels. The air conditioning worked very well. A minus point was no coffee making facilities in the room. Also, the bar did not seem to be open or well stocked, nor was the lounge area somewhere I could have relaxed or waited in. I suspect this will get better once the refurb us complete. The hotel was very clean and tidy with good quality towels and fresh sheets in the room.
Breakfast was adequate. Cereal, toast, rolls with ham and cheese. The impressive thing we found was that they don't put much food out all at once. Instead they constantly monitor the food and promptly add more fresh food when what's there runs low. This means that the ham, cheese and rolls are never left to dry out. Croissants are offered and delivered on request.
Our taxi driver could not find the hotel and stopped three times to ask other taxi drivers for directions. I don't know if this was the reason off the €28 charge for what maps showed as a 5.7km journey from the airport. Going back was €1.30 each on the R2 bus to Garibaldi plaza and €3 each for the airport shuttle bus. It seemed quicker too.
I'm ignoring the room 205 problem when doing this review because of the helpfulness of the staff. Breakfast is not a huge choice, but is fresh and adequate. We missed having coffee facilities in the room. However, the quality of the rooms, the location of the hotel and the attitude and helpfulness of the staff made up for this. It was a good price too.
I would certainly stay here again.

Arrived here quite late in the evening, receptionist spoke good english and was very helpful - I had a single room, quite small, but with everything I needed. All very clean and with plenty of towels and toiletries. Bed was a little firm and my room only had a very small window in the bathroom. Air conditioning worked well and was an essential as the weather was very hot. I did find the shower cubicle floor very slippery and I actually slipped while showering and banged my arm on the enclosure door, I don't usually slip while in the shower so it must have been slippy!!
Breakfast was very good, plenty of choice and cheerful staff.
Room fine for an overnight stay like mine but would have been a bit claustrophobic if I had been staying longer, only due to the lack of a window, nothing else. Seems strangely cell like without one.
The little "box" inside the room that your "card" inserts into to activate the electricity was a nice touch - it welcomes you by name and wishes you "Bienvenuto" on the day you check out.
Street outside a bit "grubby" looking, but went for a walk later after arriving and felt perfectly safe. The fort at the port was worth seeing at night.

Location of this hotel is excellent, very easy to find, (especially when the friendly Alibus driver allowed us to jump off a street early, which was closer to this hotel rather than at the actual bus stop near the port.) Found it easily using the maps on our smart phones.

We arrived around 9pm ish after our flight into Naples from the UK, the reception guy was really helpful, spoke good English. We stayed in a room on the 2nd floor (could of been 212 or 209?!) It had good aircon, hardish but comfortable beds, a fridge (which didn't really work but from experience the ones housed in little cupboards rarely do!) and you could tell that they were spending money doing up the rooms gradually, the technology was pretty impressive, touch screen display for the aircon displaying a welcome message and our name, nice personal touch! A few things to note though, when we arrived in our room there were wet towels on the floor as if the cleaner had been called away to sort something else and had forgotten our room. Very minor issue, didn't bother us, if we'd have mentioned it to the reception I'd have no doubt they would have come and removed them from the room, but we were tired and felt it wasn't much of an inconvenience.
There were a few bits in the room which needed attention though, the handle to open the shower door had previously snapped off and hadn't been replaced so unfortunately I got stuck inside the cubicle and had to get my husband to open the door from the outside. We also realised that the reason the towels may have been on the floor is that the shower if turned on quite a lot splashed up from the tray and escaped under the door so just be aware of that if you stay in that room. There were decent toiletries, sachets of shower gel/shampoo and also bars of soap.
The TV had very minimal English speaking channels and apart from the music channel we couldn't find any others (but neither did we in any of the other hotels we stayed in during our trip).
Our view wasn't great but to be honest for us it was simply a bed for the night since we had arrived after the last ferry to Ischia had sailed so needed somewhere close to the port to stay in preparation for the first ferry out in the morning.
Breakfast was good, plenty of everything, they topped up the meat and cheese regularly, there was some cereal and warmed croissants too. You could also help yourself to coffee and Tea also.
Overall a nice stay here. Would stay again.

Room Tip: I suspect they are all much the same.

It is deceiving going to this hotel, but when you are in see a good hotel, nice staff and good breakfast. Good location for a very dirty street, but this is Naples. Pizza in Naples is better than in Rome, plus you can go from there to Capri Island with ferry and by train to Pompei, Sorento and Amalfi Coast

The buiding is old but inside the hotel has large, clean and new apartments. The location is very good, because it´s near the port and the historical center. The famous Anticca Pizzeria da Michelle is 15 minutes by walking.The hotel´s street looks unsafe at the first impression, but it´s really not. There are Parkings at 4 blocks from there, and you' ll pay EU$ 20 per day.
The hotel´s staff are very polite and helpfull. The breakfest is good too.
