We went for a long weekend break to Naples on a flight + hotel deal through BA. We selected the Decumani Hotel de Charme based on its history and its location.
And we were well rewarded. This is a fantastic hotel in a renovated palazzo right in the centre of historic Naples, within walking distance of the key sites.
The staff were excellent and provided exceptional service. They were a better information source than the local tourist offices. Though there was PC terminal available for residents to do their own research, but it was quicker to ask the reception who provided copies of up to date train and bus schedules.
Fantastic breakfast in a glorious salon that reflected the faded glory of the palazzo.
Mini-bar - Very reasonably priced
No coffee/tea facilities in the room, but it was available through reception.
The only minor criticism was the WiFi in the bedrooms. It was erratic, but sufficient to catch up on messages. A PC terminal was available in the common area if you needed better connectivity.
We highly recommend this hotel. Very tempted to travel to Naples again!
