We booked this holiday before reading the other reviews of Naples and were then worried about our choice of location, and indeed the whole of Naples!
How wrong they were, and how fantastic was our holiday!?
The Nuovo Rebecchino is ideally located near the station, meaning easy & fast access to all famous sites in the area (Pompeii, Herculanium, Sorrento, Amalfi, Caserta,etc). It is also very close to the old town, which is fantastic during the day, but mostly shut at night.
The reception staff were helpful & courteous. I'd especially like to say 'Gracie Mille' to the cleaning lady who was very efficient and friendly (despite my feeble attempts at Italian!).
Our room was neat & clean, plenty of space (cupboard & floor) comfy beds, with a safe, and most importantly - free WiFi access (as I needed to do some work). We faced an inner courtyard so the room was very quiet. Breakfast was basic, but I believe that's the way it is everywhere in Naples.
When we left we were given a present and a little note thanking us for ignoring the bad press and visiting Naples. Later, when we were crossing the square, the cleaning lady (who was out shopping) ran up to us to wish us well - it was so lovely!
We read that the area around the station was basically a 'no go area' after dark, when in fact, we had no bother at all. Although there were a few blokes hanging around outside the supermarket having a drink, they totally ignored us (& us them). At first I was worried by what I read and that spoilt our first venture out - but I wish I hadn't read the reviews - we wandered around all over with no hassle. Found a fantastic Pizzeria round the corner (called Trianon), which was so good we ended up eating there 5 times! There are other restaurants all around the square - some good, some very bad!
I think Naples is a REAL city, rather than the tourist towns further round the coast. I felt very comfortable here, so it really depends if you want real Italy or a 'Disneyland' version.
if you are thinking of visiting the city, I'd say - GO, and if your looking for a hotel - STAY HERE!
