We arrived in Naples via train from Mantua and before that Rome; the taxi service was efficient and really does give you a taste of Italian driving. oh my goodness.............. hair raising is an understatement!
The Hotel isn't an obvious place, but after arriving we were met by very welcoming staff and shown to our room, which wasn't clean, after stating that I needed a clean room, they apologised and took us to an alternative which was immaculate, well attended and with great security.
Hubby and i took a quick walk around the local streets to acquaint ourselves i must say I sobbed my heart out; it was filthy dirty, smelt really bad and the traffic was so noisey and dangerous.
I had to accept this was a busy port town and had its' own history, so overlooking the poverty in the smaller streets and the immense amount of dog poop everywhere, we adopted an open mind and began to enjoy the city!
Naples provided a great gateway to Ischia and Capri with a short and cheap ferry ride to these islands.
Back to the hotel, it was a sufficient base and we had a great room after insisting we were moved...........but would I return there?
No, not to Naples unless the Hotel was a proven 5 star and away from the working end of the town and most certainly not to this hotel, we've done the rough side!
