We stayed in this hotel while my wife attended a conference at one of the universities in Napoli. The location can't be beat and the service is excellent in an old fashioned, proper, aloof kind of way. We stayed in a suite on the seventh floor with an incredible view of the Castel dell'Ovo and the Bay of Naples beyond. The room itself was very well appointed and, while the decor felt like a throwback to an earlier era, it somehow felt appropriate. Despite dating from an earlier time, it wasn't at all worn or rough around the edges. In a sense, you feel like you've stepped back in time (though which time period you've entered isn't exactly clear - the exterior of the hotel looks like it dates to the 60s, while the rooms and interior common areas feel more like something out of the early 20th century). My only quibble is that, in spite of paying a rather hefty price for our room, we were still required to pay an extra 15EUR for the privilege of using the (decent and clean, though unexceptional) pool and spa area.
