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.
