Hotel Palazzo Decumani

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 11, 2014

lovely hotel right in the center of the old town walking distance to everywhere.staff friendly and helpful.good breakfast with choice and barman in bar loves his job.You get a voucher for a free drink on arrival, be sure not to miss it as he brings out enough snacks to feed an army. Naples not a place anyone need worry about restaurants as they have the best pizza in all of italy and hotel sent us up around the corner where there was plenty of places serving good food very reasonably.downside are taxis, they charge what they feel like so be sure to ask what it will cost in advance, that seems to apply all along the amalfi coast.

This hotel should be perfect - it's location is ideal for Naples, the building has character [even if some of the interior design is a little gaudy] and the rooms themselves are kitted out fairly well. We felt 'safe' having read the other positive reviews to splash out a bit for a 4* hotel.

However the reality was very starkly different, the hotel seems to be suffering from a big case of complacency ego syndrome - ie we've got a high Trip Advisor rating, so we don't really care when things go wrong. In our case things did go badly wrong - we attended our room to find a horrendous sewage smell coming from the toilet, shower and sink - which got significantly worse whenever the toilet was flushed. We reported this to the front desk [just one member of staff as always] and there was no apology but an assurance they would ask the cleaner to do something. The cleaning staff to their credit did try their best but evidently there was a blockage in the sewerage pipes somewhere and it needed a plumber not a cleaner. When we reported the issue again the receptionist seemed totally indifferent and couldn't seem to comprehend why we were so irked by the smell of sewage. She said she'd already made a note for the cleaning staff (almost as if it was their fault), and that there were no rooms for us to move to and it was essentially tough luck get on with it. At this point we said we wouldn't be expecting to pay the full amount on check out and asked to speak to the manager - the response was there was no manager to talk to and that our concerns would be noted on the system. Still no apology. So after 2 full days of a horrible sewage smell we came to settle the bill the evening before we were to leave [we had an early start the next morning] safe in the knowledge we'd have a discount applied and opportunity to discuss our issues with the manager. This was not the case, a different member of staff at front desk this time - but once again one who knew nothing about our issues and therefore couldn't authorise a discount. We once again asked to speak to the manager. This was again not possible. However, they assured us that somebody with authority to discuss our issues and apply a discount would definitely be on hand from 7.30am - they would note the problem. STILL no apology.

The following morning (7.30am) we went down to 'settle' our bill and talk with the manager. However, there was again a different member of staff - who again knew nothing about our issues [clearly nothing had ever been noted on the system] and who had no authority to apply any kind of discount. Understandably by this point we were very annoyed and frustrated and demanded to talk to the manager or acting manager - we were told this was not possible as they were away for the weekend and that we would have to pay the full amount and take this up with them at a later date. At least this individual was very apologetic but ultimately we had to pay the full price and it was only because we happened to be returning to the hotel for one night [already booked so couldn't choose a different hotel] we had an opportunity to take this up with the manager. However, it really did take the shine off our stay in Naples and was a lot of hassle and stress. What kind of 4* hotel doesn't have an acting manager with the authority to resolve problems it really was a total shambles - there is no system for dealing with complaints or issues that arise at all!

Following an email exchange, on our return we did speak to the manager who was hardly effusive with her apologies, we were given an upgrade for the one night we were there - which essentially amounted to a slightly bigger room with a bath - the big bonus was that there was not a smell of sewage. We were also told there would be a discount applied to our bill on departure. The reality of this discount was a poultry 10 euros. Again to us this was indicative of a hotel that really didn't much care about one customer's bad experience and smacked of total indifference - but by this point we really couldn't be bothered to raise yet another point.

Our advice would be stay around the area (it's great) but think VERY carefully about booking this particular hotel because if things go wrong there is no system in place for resolution and an indeed very limited motivation among most staff for doing so anyway.

We stayed for 4 nights and were absolutely satisfied. Located in the old town of Napoli, but the area felt safe and quiet. Staff at reception desk was very friendly, especially the lady working during the day. High quality breakfast of cold cuts, scrambled eggs, very fresh home made cakes and so on. Our room was on the third floor, very quiet, with comfortable bed and clean spacious bathroom. We would absolutely recommend hotel Palazzo Decumani.

Checked in after a long day of traveling. We couldn't be more happy with the hotel and room
Room is modern, contemporary designed and is nice a cozy. Huge ceilings give it a much larger feel. Excellent shower with a nice rain head option and hotel is perfectly situated. Within walking distance to everywhere you want to be including great restaurants, museums and historical sites. This hotel was very easy to get to. We came in on the train from Rome and it was either a 20 minute walk or 1 stop on the metro. We chose the metro and exited at university from there its just a 5 min walk.

We stayed here 3 nights at the beginning of our trip in July. Best breakfast on our three week trip. Very good location to sights and train station.

It was clean and quiet and we felt very safe waking everywhere. They arranged a taxi to the hydrofoil for us. We would recommend this hotel without hesitation.

This hotel is modern and right next to the hustle and bustle of the central historic area of Naples, we loved it. The staff are very welcoming and really helpful - ask for a map and directions at reception and they know everywhere. We got a welcome drink on our first night too - barman was charming, looked like he ought to be in a 1950s Hollywood film. Room was great (air-conditioned) and breakfast was lovely - lots of fresh fruit as well as cakes galore, with usual cheese/ham etc. Taxi to airport was 2 euros and arrived within 3 mins. If we go back to Naples then would be very happy to stay here.

Naples is choas. Filthy, loud, and hectic. This hotel was everything the city wasnt. Clean, a great breakfast, nice little bar with snacks, comfortable rooms with big showers, and a good central location made this hotel the perfect retreat from a sometimes stressful city environment.
