Had a three-night stay at this wonderful new hotel in Naples. Staff (reception, booking and bar/breakfast) were extremely helpful and dedicated and made it all feel very cool and friendly.
The place is situated within an old exhibition centre called Mostra d'Oltranare. Mostra d'Oltremare was opened as the Triennial Exhibition of Italian Overseas Lands in 1940. It had been planned by the government as a Universal Theme Exhibition, like the Universal Exhibition of Rome Park (later known as EUR). At the time the facilities were 36 exhibition pavilions set in green areas, rich in herbs imported from the colonies Italy had at the time; each pavilion recreated one of the overseas colonies, in every aspect (habitat, flora, architecture). The hotel itself was designed by Marcello Canino, who in the 30s signed some of the most representative buildings in Italy. The place could improve considerably if it offered some more information on its building and Mostra as well as some photographs (bw) on the walls of the large and functional rooms. The sense of space, architecture and design made it all an unforgettable experience. There is also a swimming pool centre within the Mostra that offers discount entry for the Hotel residents (maybe it could be free?). A brochure with some more detail information of Metro and rail connections would be useful as well as more fresh fruits for breakfast. Highly recommended before it becomes unreachable!
