I stayed here for 4 nights in June and loved this place. I also looked at places in the Chiara (too tame) and around the Piazza Garabaldi (too dangerous at night) and picked the Domus Gemi so that I would have an authentic experience in Naples while staying in a very comfortable clean B&B. This was a great choice.
Pasquale and his partner were very thoughtful and helped us with train schedules, boarding pass printing, taxis, directions, carrying our luggage and one day Pasquale personnaly walked us to the ATM (Bankomat) because we had gotten lost trying to find it.
Our room could not have been nicer. It was huge with a large comfortable double and two equally comfortable twin beds. The linens were freshly washed and beautiful. The room had an ensuite with ample hot water and great water pressure. We had satellite TV and AC, although we never used it. The breezes from our two floor to high ceiling balcony windows kept us more than comfortable. I believe there is free wifi, but there is a computer in the common area that is for guest use 24/7.
Domus Gemi was smack in the middle of Old Napoli which was enchanting. It was about a 20 minute walk to the train station but a world away. I was so happy I did not book around Piazza Garabaldi just to save a few dollars.
We walked for hours down the Via de la Tribunali which courses down the middle of Old Napoli. We had incredible pizza right down the street at the President's Pizzaria (Clinton ate there) and breakfast in the morning at the outdoor cafe directly across the street from the Domus Gemi. We had delicious take away at one of the little delis less than a block away where they make their own grilled eggplant which was to die for. Across the street is Underground Napoli and a lemonchello distillary where they give you a short tour.
We were two women travellers and we never felt unsafe in this neighborhood. We felt like we had made friends after the first day. The shopkeepers and pizza workers recognized us and waved hello when we passed. I would return in a heartbeat.
