“Don't believe the pictures”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 4, 2013

Pros
Can't think of any, maybe the location

Cons
Dirty, ceiling had whole and a white material taped over it
Clueless staff
Internet in common areas only

In more words: the filth was awful. At least it was cleaner than the city itself as we visited whilst the whole garbage thing was going on in the city. I kid you not the ceiling had holes in it which was "fixed" by putting some material over it in a more or less matching colour. The walls were also in an iffy condition. The bathroom flooded every time you took a shower.

We have asked the receptionist where the bus to the Vesuvius stops, he had no idea. We asked where the bus to the airport stops, he had no idea.

But hey, at least the aircon was working.

I have indicated July 2013 as the travel date but this happened in 2011. Only found Tripadvisor now unfortunately :(

Room Tip: The best room would be one that is not in this hotel

This is a bargain basement hotel, next to the railway station. Be clear about this or you might be disappointed!

The hotel is just a few minutes walk away from the railway station, with a large construction site outside. It has an air of faded glory, but this is at least reflected by the very low price. The reception staff are helpful and speak good English. They were happy to recommend several restaurants from the number nearby, and the one we chose came up with an excellent meal.

The bed was clean and comfortable, but the rooms are somewhat old fashioned and basic. The small old-style TV could not come up with anything worth viewing and it seemed an age for the water to run hot in the bathroom.

Noise was a problem, as drivers in Naples drive on their horns; we also suffered a severe thunder storm and someone on the construction site started up what seemed to be a petrol powered chain saw at 7am. Prior to this a dog had apparently been crying in one of the adjoining rooms for at least an hour.

Breakfast - well I would describe this as Continental at its most basic. Still, as I said at the start, you are paying a bargain basement price for the location. In fact we paid £21.49 each for a perfect (for us) location in single rooms and including breakfast.

Room Tip: Away from the construction site!

We stayed for 4 nights in this hotel. it's nice and clean. It was wery easy to find it from train station. Friendly staff. Specialy thnx to receptionist Margerita who helped us in all our queries while we dealed our problems and hotel manager Nicolo who drived us and helped to write a report in police.
P.S. Our passports have been stollen on street while we walked for a dinner.

The only good things about this hotel is that it's right by the train station and they provide a free breakfast with pretty good coffee. Besides that, nothing about this hotel is in any way ideal. The air conditioning in the room did not work. I told them that at the front desk, and their explanation was that it didn't work not only in our room but in any room of the hotel. The bed sheets were filthy- yellow and red stains, with many hairs. Thankfully my husband and I had our sleep sacks with us so we didn't have to touch the sheets. The TV didn't work, and the water in the shower fluctuated between hot and cold. The eggs at breakfast were cold. Internet only works in the common rooms; however, a small bonus was that our room was close enough to one of the common rooms that we could actually connect to the Internet in our room.

A great place to stay with perfect location (close to public transport and regional train network as well as the city centre), very nice staff, simple but comfortable and clean rooms and continental breakfast which is hard to find in Napoli, and generally in Italy.
Overall it offers a very good price/value ratio for those planning to spend a longer weekend in the city on a low/mid-level budget.

Only one minus: currently, there is a construction on Piazza Garibaldi, so it can be a bit noisy during the morning and evening, but not always...

There were hairs on the bedsheets. V unclean hotel. No safe to store valuables. Shower took over 5 mins to produce hot water. The sink tap only has cold water. The day receptionist is very rude. There is major construction work going on opposite the hotel - v noisy, don't expect to sleep. The hotel is very close to the train station the area is a dump and we felt unsafe. The room has a very small window. The rooms do not have AC or a fan therefore it gets very hot. overall not worth staying at this dirty hotel.

Due to the very low price I did not expect much from this hotel but needed it only for an overnight stay after the flight. I was very pleasantly surprised. Together with my sister and two little kids we hat a spacious 4-bed-room and when we came back for another two nights we even had a little terrazza to the inside patio. The stuff (Maritta?! and others) where extremely friendly and helpfull with all needs (Taxi, Excursion, etc.). The rooms were clean and nice and everything went without problems. The breakfast buffet had all you needed (which is not usual in Italy!) and in the eveninig there was a little bar inside the Hotel. It is siutated perfectly for a city-trip to Naples, just a few metres from the central station, the bus station to the airport and also other bus-stations e. g. to go to the Amalfi-coast. Also there are a lot of nice restaurants and shops nearby and most city-attractions can be reched by foot. I plan to go back there!

Room Tip: The roomes on the backside are more quiet, to the street (the huge Piazza Garibaldi) it is of course...
