The fact that Naples is hostile, dirty, noisy and unsafe (hell on Earth) is not the Hotel Bellini's fault - but it doesn't help matters. The hotel is difficult to find, but when we did we were filled with confidence by the man at the desk. He helpfully told us we could get a fixed rate 10Euro taxi to the station when we were to leave (was true) and gave us a map and some details of points of interest in the city and how to get around. However, he also said that as the boiler in our private bathroom was broken, he would refund the difference between the shared bathroom rate and what we paid for the first night. We never received this because he never passed this info on to his colleague who then refused to issue it the following day and didn’t do it on the spot himself. She supposedly called him, but our refund wasn't forthcoming and when the boiler was fixed for the second night the light didn't work and she wasn't especially bothered. Very disappointed. Noisy place to stay because of the screams and arguments outside on the street.
We were in Naples to visit Pompeii and Vesuvius which were amazing so I do not regret the experience. However, i will never set foot in Naples voluntarily again. We tried very hard to find something we liked but couldn't. If someone said they had to visit Naples and what would i recommend, I’d tell them to put their hands a bit further in their pockets and stay somewhere nicer than the Bellini Hotel.
