The location is excellent, just some meters from the sea, with a pedestrian frontline (no cars) and lots of restaurants surrounding. The view of the sea and the Castel d'uovo in front, with Vesuvio and Capri at the background is amazing.
There are actually two buildings. Do not expect a view to the sea unless you pay the full fare. I had a room in the "other" building. It was extremely hot outside the room and the decor of walls and corridors is non existent and abandoned. It requires some investment. The room (classic single room) was too small, particularly the bed. The housekeepers are extremely noisy. They must take care not to disturb guests sleeping from 8 am.
Internet is not free but fortunately you can get some free vouchers at the reception desk. They are not strict qith the number of vouchers (15 min only each).
The pool at the roof is at the beginning a bit disappointing. Do not expect to swim but just be in water, due to the small size of each of the basins. However, it is great to have this available and free in such a hot city like Naples. It is really worth !
The gym is small but enough to exercise if you want.
Napoli is an excellent point for excursions to Vesuvio, Capri, Erculano and Pompeii. In Naples I would recommend the tour Napoli Soterranea and a the street Gregorio Armeno with lots of souvenirs typical from Napoli and the famous and extraordinay crips
