Naples is a busy city and this hotel (technically, it is a bed and breakfast) provides true respite from that hussle. You may be fooled initally because the hotel is right on the corner of a very busy intersection right across from the police station. The hotel is also adjacent to a garage and a street that is not very appealing. In fact you might miss the hotel because there is no discernible sign outside, just a door along the building.
But once you find it and you will (we used google maps and the neighbors next door helped us find the hotel), you will find an oasis. There are only a few rooms (I think only 4-5) with a small lobby and breakfast room. The rooms are so quiet with huge dual glaze windows overlooking the street letting in much light but blocking out so much noise. There are small balconies for some rooms.
I liked the white on white walls and furniture and with 10-12 foot ceilings, the rooms looked large and clean. Although the furniture appeared to be from Ikea, they fit in with the nice modern architectural features of the rooms coves and arches. Our room had a seperate bedroom from a common area. Everything looked and smelled clean and new, offering such a contrast with the busy city outside.
The energetic staff are very helpful and provided some nice recommendations for dinner. Cleanliness, security and comfort seemed to be their priorities for their clients.
Location is incredible too. The hotel is just a few minutes from the funicular to the top of Vomero, the shopping streets of Toledo, Chiaia, and Croce, the harbor, and the archaelogical museum. From the train station at Garibaldi, you can walk the mile plus distance or take the R2 bus.
One tip about Naples. Beware of pick pockets. Don't travel alone at night. Keep valuables in front as close to your skin as you can. Beware of crowded buses or subways where theives will press against you. And beware of elevators where theives will enter if you are alone.
