“Very good!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2014 via mobile

I always promised that I wouldn't go less than 4 star because of previous disappointments .... However I booked this hotel because of the reviews!
We wanted a real experience of Naples.... Bustling city break..... Visiting the coast.... Ferry to Capri.... Basically to use this hotel as a base for what we wanted to do.
We were not disappointed at all.... Yes the area does look grotty and covered in graffiti etc...but it's traditional Naples. You get a real feel of Naples and not a facade created in places like Sorrento where it is difficult to believe it is ever inhabited by anyone other than tourists!
Inside the hotel the staff are helpful.... The superior rooms are spacious and clean.... Excellent powerful shower too... The breakfast is an excellent example of continental with lots to choose from... All of which is high quality!
The hotel interior is beautiful and demonstrates it's importance in the past.... Yes there are areas which other reviewers have commented on such as the ceiling in the breakfast room which could be worked on, but it's a very old beautiful building...not a case of an average hotel where a quick bodge job of artex will do!
You don't get a swimming pool with loungers and lots of tourists slurping on booze here...but you do get a great hotel at a great price which is clean comfortable base to explore Naples from. I am well travelled and a bit of a snob....and I would stay here again.
Oh and one last thing the room has a safe and a very cheap mini bar! GREAT!

As soon as the elevator door opened we were warmly greeted by the desk receptionist who helped us take our luggage to check in. Don't get turned off by the exterior, inside quite grand with super tall ceilings and we got upgraded to a deluxe room without asking. Nice big space and clean. Breakfast was amazing. Staff is very helpful and gave us great recommendations for food and things to do. (Though we were only there for one day).

Stayed for 5 nights in August. The hotel is situated in the heart of Naples surrounded by lovely old buildings housing families. You really feel as if you have become a local person living in the city centre.
The Hotel is beautiful, a renovated monastery full of charm.
The staff especially Elana and Felacica , but I am sure all the rest too, could not be more welcoming or helpful.
Stay in a boring 4 or 5 star Hotel or get close to the heart of Naples and it's people in a beautiful building?
Decumani every time for me.

We found this hotel absolutely charming - the staff are so friendly and helpful, the rooms are beautifully furnished and quiet, there is a very nice courtyard for guests and the breakfast room is the most amazing room you will ever see in a hotel - unbelievable! It is in the University area and walking distance to main streets and railway station.
The entry is very off putting, graffiti and a dodgy looking lift, but guests must remember that this is a shared property and the hotel only occupies the 2nd floor of the building. Therefore they probably cannot independently fix the entrance. Ignore it, when the lift door opens you will forget all about the entrance! A taxi can be ordered and collect you from the courtyard. Staff recommended a wonderful pizzeria to us (meant to be best in Naples) and it was. Where it was located was also in a fantastic area that we probably wouldn't have visited normally. We had a super few hours on the hop on hop off bus that went out to the seaside suburbs - great way to get out of town and the blaring emergency vehicles. We arrived on a 6.30am ferry from Palermo and staff kindly stored our bags and offered us breakfast which was so appreciated and wouldn't always happen at other hotels.

The staff were fantastically helpful and informative.

Much has been said about the entrance to the hotel and it is a little shabby but not too bad.

We were a little disappointed on the interior decoration which needs looking at and freshening.

Mini bar prices were very good which was nice to see.

Wi-fi available but was generally very slow in the room.

In the middle of the Lively and authentic historic centre is the decumani hotel. Once you get through the small streets and walk up the old building, you find a beautiful 4 star hotel with the kindest, most helpful personnel. The breakfast room is breathtaking and they serve a large breakfast buffet as well. The location is perfect as it is walking distance from any point of interest. I would definitely come back again.

After a little search for the entrance and having some questions about the surrounding, we found the elevator to the first floor and entered a very nice hotel. The people were very friendly, the room nice and silent and a lovely breakfast room! This hotel was a very good place to stay for visiting Naples.
