Yes, the Britannique Hotel is ancient, but so is the Versailles castle, no the Britannique Hotel is not like Hilton, Hyatt and others. If you are looking for authenticity, atmosphere, and..a good night it is the place to be. The view over the bay is really stunning and stays in the memories for long. When you wake up and you look at the view, it is really a dream! Very clean. Among the downsides: the hotel would need some..refurbishment and the staff while courteous and efficient, could me somewhat more dynamic and customer focused. Ideally located near the funicular and the metro. In Napoli, it is my 1st choice, definitely.

hardly worth putting this review in as it echoes so many others. This is a four star hotel in that it offers that standard 4* facilities (TV, room service, 24 hour manned desk) but also has goodies like free internet (sadly not in the rooms). location can't be beat (I shared my balcony view of naples and islands with the five star hotel next door); breakfast is not holiday inn style spread but lovely fresh bread, croissants and expresso on request.
she is faded, she is outdated and in places could do with a refurb but the prices reflect this, the view and location don't. like others, I travel a lot for work and its nice in my spare time to have a comfy, cosy, old friend to rely on (oh yes, and for bar service on the roof-top, just dial 9 as suggested in the info provided by the hotel) - if you want something sleeker, there is the bar in the hotel next door.

We stayed there for few nights, before we head down to Ischia......The hotel served as a place to sleep and get ready for exploring the city.....Maybe it is old and tired, but is safe, trustable and has spacious, clean rooms. we had room with the balcony and view on the Margellina and Vesuvio--> it was great , a specially in the evening before bed time.....
If you are an active tourist , this is great place to chill down after busy day......

If we had booked more than one night we certainly would not have stuck around for it...
Terribly outdated. It may have been nice at one time. This place is meager at best. Apparently, stars in Europe do not translate to US standards.
Admittedly a tough critic but this hotel wasn't even close

Traditional four stars hotel in an ancient villa with antique furniture with splendid vew over the bay ;half way up Vomero hill.
It is not the hotel for who likes modern.
Garden with tropical plants.

This is a nice hotel. The breakfast was good, the room and the bathroom was so big and always clean! :)
And the view from the balcony, was really really nice!!!!!
Tipp: you have to pay for the parking (15 EUR/day).
The staff was helpness, and kind.

Not so much a gem as a fossil.

If you like to feel you have fallen through a timewarp then this is the place for you. The restaurant menu reads like a cordon bleu cookbook from the 1970s. Unfortunately this date was also the most recent that they washed the curtains.

Service: the staff try, but there's only so much they can do.

Four stars? I don't know how they did that!

I won't be going back
