“This place is a DUMP!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2003

We made the mistake of booking a room for 2 nights at this flea bag hotel after looking at their website. I don't know what hotel they took picutres of for their site but it sertainly wan't this one. It is in a terrible section of town that I could only describe as gritty, impoverished and industrial. There is nothing around the hotel. I felt unsafe walking around the corner to get some yucky pizza and two beers from a take-out place. The staff is unfriendly. The rooms are furnished with old mismatched dorm-like furniture and tattered Degas posters. There was an extra bed akwardly squeezed in the corner of our room. The walls are paper thin. I got the pleasure of listening to a couple next door alternatively fight and having *** all night. It was so bad I actually banged on the wall to get them to shut up. A couple of drunks tried to get in our room by mistake in the middle of the night. No wonder, the hall was pitch dark as soon as the elevator door closed. You had to feel along the wall to find a light switch. Rental for a remote to operate the airconditioner was 10 Euro/day on top of the room rate. It is NOT within walking distance to the pompeii ruins. We walked it and it was not easy at all. (We are in our 30s and in OK shape) We walked along highways with no sidewalks, through ugly unfriendly residential sections and through more industrial areas to finally get to the ruins. We stayed one night and got the hell out of there. If I were doing it again, I'd stay in someplace nice in Naples and just take the train to the ruins for the day.
