“Very central and safe place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 20, 2013

If you want to be at the heart of the old centre of Naples, then this is the place for you. It is a real haven in a noisy and busy area, and very secure. No less than 5 keys are needed to get in! The rooms are clean and quiet and there is a nice roof terrace for breakfast in good weather or just to sit out and enjoy the view over Vesuvius. We even had a neighbour playing 'O sole mio' when sitting out enjoying some wine one evening!

The breakfast was fresh if a bit sparse even by Italian standards, and the only drawback, not mentioned on their website is that they only take payment in cash.

Great location and good, clean accommodation. Shame the breakfast isn't served until 9am though. Would also have liked the offer of an earlier breakfast when leaving at 7am to go to the airport. Money taken the night before with no offer of food for the morning. Not good!

Eight days in April

Elegant simplicity, luminous, art

Crisp whiteness of the linen, of the halls, of the rooms

In the very heart of Naples, of its history, of the people

The terrace at night: roofs, terraces, duomos, the Bay of Naples, Vesuvious, ancient towers, the stars; below, the sound of humanity, hum of the crowd, talking, laughing, children playing, fireworks, scooters, singing, bells

In your room, you close the windows and the shutters, silence

Roberto, elegantissimo, distinguished, knows travelers are like children

Paola, Roberta, such dedication to the family business, everything pristine and fresh

Roberta grazie per lasciando me condividere roba greco

Naples astonishing and beguiling

Located in the very heart of old Naples this Bed&Breakfast is in the hustle and bustle of Piazza San Gaetano amid the main baroque wonders of Naples, right in front of two barroque churches and Via Tribunale where the entrance to Greek-period Underground Naples is.
Last but not least it is a mere 100 mts walk from what's considered to be one of the best pizzerias in Naples: Sorbillo. (So good, indeed!).
Zia Maria Home B&B is located on the 5th floor of a few-centuries-old palace, now a popular neighbourhood. It might seem disappointing from the outside, but once you get to the 5th floor you find yourself in a pristine, white and clean, comfortable and cosy paradise. Very warm welcome, crisp clean sheets and comfy beds... in basic but really clean rooms. Bare in mind you'll be paying for an excellent location and a clean, stylish place, but not for high-standard services, which I find ok. Breakfast is not outstanding, but the views from the terrace where it's served are a must-see. Perhaps a better breakfast and some amenities in the bathroom would make it be worth the five stars evaluation. I'm sure I'll return to Zia Maria's whenever I return to Naples which, on the other hand, I loved with its chaos and charm, its dark alleys, its baroque churches and palaces...and its kind, welcoming people. That was my experience!

This is a lovely B&B in the heart of Naples. My room was clean and very comfortable. The B&B is located on the 5th floor, but is accessed by elevator. While the hosts don't speak much English, they are welcoming and hospitable. This is an ideal location from which to explore the city. There are a number of things to see and do in the immediate area. (The tour of subterranean Naples is highly recommended.) It is an easy walk from the train station. (Wherever you choose to stay in Naples, do not stay near the train station. Around the station the city seems dirty and dangerous, whereas the area around Zia Maria is beautiful and at times even magical.)

We will definitely return again to this lovely calm and chic B&B on the 5th floor overlooking the Piazza S.Gaetano. Everything was white-themed from the floors to the walls, bedding and bathroom which made it feel calm and peaceful - think chic Ikea-style. Our room had a very high ceiling and was lovely and spacious with a comfortably firm bed. Very secure too - we had keys to our room, 5th floor security door, lift and front door onto the square. We are a lesbian couple but were greeted with complete friendliness. Can't wait to go back.

Room Tip: Our own room overlooked the square but they all looked nice

Zia Maria Home is in the perfect location to explore the wonderful city of Naples. The spotlessly clean rooms, are very spacious and comfortable. An added bonus were the balconies, where you had a view of the Piazza San Gaetano and Mount Vesuvius.
From the moment Maria greeted us at the main entrance we felt safe and nurtured!
The delicious breakfasts overlooking the rooftops of the old town, are also worth a mention. Bliss!
Thank you Maria and family for making our stay in Naples so memorable.
