I feel in love with this hotel. The staff were amazingly accommodating. They helped us do our laundry at a reasonable price. We were given the option of a standard room or upgrading to the "Queen's room". Since it was my first time in Italy - what did I choose? The Queen's room of course (it wasn't that much more.)
We so much loved this place that we extended our stay. Compared to US Hotels it's a Westin or Intercontinental. Wifi, lovely bathrooms, excellent breakfasts, and outdoor seating. The hotel is interior facing so the grittiness of the neighborhood is hidden from you.
With that said -- you are in a grittier neighborhood than near the seaside. You're near the old central area, near the Duomo (cathedral). We walked everywhere. Naples is crazy, tough, and they will treat you like a tourist with too much cash if that's how you act. All negotiations are done with a sense of humor and they will always get the better end of the deal. So be smart but not stubborn. I call it India meets Italy.
Back to the hotel. I dream of coming back here. Loved staying here. It was truly special. And it's close to the train station (but you will get charged a premium regardless :)
Driving in Naples is challenging. I'd recommend getting a driver if you can or taking taxis.
Even if you don't stay at this hotel -- visit here for dinner or lunch. You'll truly love it.
