“A Nightmare!!!”
Reviewed November 10, 2011

This was a one night stopver whilst touring Italy. Its a 1 minute walk from the infamous Napoli train station and it has to be the worst place we have ever stayed in anywhere in the world. I write this in all honesty to warn other trip advisor members - The place has to be seen to be believed - some photos are attached.

The "hotel" is located up six flights of fithy stairs - The lift apparently long abandoned as unsafe and smells of urine. The street oustide is a bustling market piled high with rubbish. The rooms are lit with ONE low energy globe in a four light fitting (our friends room was the same). The corridor has a timer on it's dim light and you need to RUN to the room before it goes out and you are plunged into total black darkness to crash into a suit of metal armour at the end. The rooms and bathroom are dirty and smell of ciggarette/cigar smoke. Whilst the sheets appeard laundered as were the pillow slips, the actual pillows themselves were stained with yellow perspiartion marks (we used bath towels over them). The desk refused to give us the remote for the aircon as it was apparently "warm season now over" - there are no fridges in the rooms and a "communal glass door fridge" in the reception area was "no longer working" The "view" from the room was a balcony full of rubble and an old toilet with pigeon droppings covering most of the rear exterior. Paint was peeling of the walls almost everywhere in the access passages and stairwell to the reception. A heavy steel grille is locked at nighfall and you have to ring a buzzer to have it remote unlocked so you can climb the dark stairway up the reception gates which are also locked from within (this tells you something!). The street outide was awash with illegal immigrants selling scarves, beggars and drunks. Do NOT stay in this hell hole

Room Tip: Dont go there as there are no "good rooms" to be has
