“Hotel Correra 241 and Naples”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2013

The Hotel...
We booked the hotel as a crash-pad for a 4 day break to Naples, after reading reviews on Trip Advisor, following an earlier visit in the year to Sorrento. The Hotel is good value for money and is ideally situated for exploring the city. The hotel is situated approximately 50mtrs from the main drag, down a side street (don't be fooled by first impressions - although the street is somewhat "coarse" looking, the hotel is clean, comfortable and quite appealing once inside). Staying here, you get the feeling of being a native Neapolitan, but can retreat from the sometimes overwhelming hustle and bustle of city life into the calm of the hotel. Everything is within walking distance from the hotel (Archeological Museum 200mtrs/ Piazza Bellini approx. 500mtrs/ Via Tribulani 600mtrs/ SpaccaNapoli 700mtrs/ Palazzo Reale 1.8k/ Seafront 2k). However, if you don't fancy walking there are excellent transport links from the Piazza Dante (around 100mtrs) with a Metro station, Buses (even on a Sunday) and a taxi rank.
The hotel is bright, clean and modern looking with a the quirky feature of being built in to the historic city walls. The rooms are spacious with plenty of storage/shelves to sort your belongings and come with a complimentary safe/minibar/hairdryer and TV (with 2 English speaking channels) and air-conditioning. The en-suite had a large, powerful shower, a bidet, toilet and wash hand basin - all kept very clean with towels refreshed daily and complimentary toiletries. I would say, if I was being truly picky, the only thing I really missed was a balcony which would have been great for people watching. The room we had was extremely quiet once inside and the bed was comfortable - we had some great sleep although perhaps a couple of extra pillows wouldn't have gone amiss.
There is a nice little terrace area in the middle of the hotel where you can have an afternoon/evening drink or, in the mornings, take your breakfast to - a good feature.
Breakfast is basic, but more than adequate for meeting your needs - you just have to learn to go continental! You can help yourself to as much as you like - Ham, Cheese and bread rolls/ Muesli/Cereals/Yoghurt/Fresh fruit/ Croissants/Fruit Turn-overs/Fresh fruit Juice/Nutella/Coffee/Espresso/Milk and water.
All the staff were lovely, friendly and helpful - if you need anything you just had to ask and all spoke English (far better than I spoke Italian anyway!).
All in all I would say the hotel is a solid 3 star - you get what you pay for, and I think it offers great value for money, in a good location, for a city break exploring Naples - I would definitely recommend it - we didn't really want for anything and it matched all of our expectations.

Naples - The City....

Well, if you're thinking of going to Naples - do it! It is an amazing city, rich in culture, with amazing food and friendly people - definitely an experience! First of all, get the picturesque images of Rome/Tuscany/Sorrento out of your mind - this is not what Naples is about!!! Naples is a REAL city, with REAL Italians going about their REAL day-to-day lives - this isn't plastic!. Don't get me wrong, The city IS beautiful - there are some amazing churches/works of art, pretty back streets and has a wonderful cultural heritage, but it is a city full of the "haves and have-nots" - just like London, there are certain areas you wouldn't go wandering alone in the middle of the night with your bumbag/rolex and passport on show - don't be scared, just be sensible!
The people of Naples are, on first impressions, quite "stand-offish" - somewhat unreadable - however, once you engage with them, whether in a restaurant/bar/shop - they give out the biggest smile, are welcoming and helpful and have a quite keen dry sense of humour. I did not feel threatened, intimidated or unwelcome at any point and would certainly go back. I didn't realize, before I went, that the city is so studious, and it is full of groups of university students -they add a real fashion conscious and bohemian feel.
I won't bore you about all the places we went to - there are far too many to mention - however, would definitely recommend all of the places I listed in the hotel section above, and the following:

Tips:

1) Get yourself a "Rough Guide" book and basically do everything it says!

2) Visit the seafront on a Sunday and have lunch in one of the restaurants - it's what all the Italian families do, is great for people watching and really makes you feel like you're on holiday (we had a lovely 3 course meal and bottle of wine at "Stellar").

3) Pizza is good EVERYWHERE! There are a few famous Pizzeria's on the Via Tribulani where you have to give in your name and queue outside until a table is free (De Matteo/Sorbillo etc) - we managed to walk in and get a table straight away by getting there at about 12noon - miss the lunchtime/evening rush and you miss the queues! When reading a Pizza menu (or any other menu) you only get what it says you'll get (if it doesn't say tomato sauce, it won't be on the pizza/ if it doesn't say "with fries" it doesn't come with fries etc). The best pizzas we had in a few restaurants were the "Quattro Staggione" - 4 Seasons - this has a little bit of everything.

4) If you want café culture head to SpaccaNapoli - this is probably the nearest you'll get to "post-card" Italy.

5) If you want to sit in a bar all evening head to Piazza Bellini for about 9pm - you'll secure a table for the night, and get good service. It gets rammed at about 10:30pm.

6) Experience a football night - especially if Naples are playing Milan (arch-rivals!) the atmosphere is amazing - they love it! The bars and cafes are full of people/fireworks are let off whenever they score!

7) Don't eat "friarelli" - a local, very bitter tasting spinach/cabbage - had it on a pizza and it was rank!

8) Try and use the toilets in the hotel/in larger establishments - toilets in public bars can be extremely hit and miss! Most have no toilet seat and don't seem to be kept very clean. the cleanest public facilities I came across where in the Pizzeria Sorbillo - I won't tell you about the worst...... Ladies take sanitary wipes/toilet roll with you.

9) Take an empty suitcase - The streets are crammed with clothes shops with a lot of things you won't see back here (especially mens clothes). I'd say for a good 250 euros you'd come out with a decent wardrobe.

Budget...

1) Two drinks (Wine/Spirit/Cocktail/Pint of beer) tend to cost between 9-11 Euros. this usually comes with a bowl of crisps/nuts/pretzels or in some cases all three! You may be expected to pay at the table after each drink - don't tip each time, but leave a tip at the end.

2) Pizza's - We had two large pizzas/glass of wine/bottle of water in Sorbillo (one of the most famous Pizzerias) and it came 17 Euros! Pizza on average between 5-8 euros.

3) We had an extremely large meal on one night at the sea-front (Large Piazzola platter to share/ Rissotto/Pasta dish/Salmon Main/Fillet Steak Main/bottle of wine/bottle of water) for 107 Euros.

4) Take some spare change - there are a plethora of musicians/hawkers/ flower sellers/charm sellars/beggars that may come to you when sat in bars or cafes. Some are worth a small token, some are not. By all means tip the ones who make you laugh/smile/pull on the heart strings, but don't tip them all - if you don't want the attention be firm and say "no" -they'll go away. Most bar/café staff discourage them from hassling you.

5) Taxi from the Airport to the hotel cost us 27Euros. Taxi from the Hotel back to the Airport (booked via reception) cost us 17Euros! Make sure you book Taxi's via the hotel to get a good price - and always ask how much before you get in.

Enjoy Naples - we loved it!!!

Room Tip: If you can, ask for a room above Reception - some rooms are located right next to the breakfast area...

This is a great hotel, an oasis of calm in a crazy frantic city. Naples is great fun, don't be put off by any negative reviews! It's dirty, has mad traffic, some crazy locals, but I really enjoyed it. The hotel is in a good location, just off the main shopping street. Once you enter the hotel you can't hear any noise from outside. I slept with the skylight in my room open, and I didn't hear a thing. The rooms are big, with great showers. Breakfast was great, and you can make yourself a coffee any time you want. There are a few shops on the same street if you need to buy water etc. I'd recommend piazza Bellini near by for a drink - it seems to the happening place at night.

We stopped over in Naples (despite the repeated warnings by people not to) on our way to Venice from the south of Italy. As soon as you get out of the station area, it is confronting how this city is so much different to the rest of Italy. The hotel was hard to find but very well located and the room and hotel itself is very modern and clean and has a nice funky feel to it. We were expecting a lot worse considering the narrow and dingy street you enter to get to the entrance.

Overall though the room was spacious and clean, the staff were friendly and we were very happy with the hotel for the price.

Generally You touched the town and I'm glad to hear that You gave Naples a chance of visit.
Actually our town deserves much more of what it gets at the moment. Bad word of mouth has partially compromised our huge natural and architecture patrimony but the ones who really enjoy the town and its feeling can realize how Naples is good at the end.

Good location, friendly staff, hygienic and important a very good airco.
We didn't have any burden of neighborhood noise at all.
Very good quality, for a good price!
Only the breakfast room was a bit too small, but therefor also very charming.

Of insecurity that still makes many tourists afraid to come to Naples, we didn't noticed anything.
On the contrary, with the many policemen on the street, we've felt quit secure.
Of course it's best not to take very late walks, carrying very expensive stuff etc.
But honestly, you don't have to do this in Brussels or Antwerp either.

The culture, museums, streets, restaurants and atmosphere of Naples are very nice. The visits to Pompei and the Vesivius will stay in our memory for a long time yet.

We stayed at this hotel a week ago while visiting Naples and Pompeii. There were six of us, three adults and three kids. We had a single room and a family room. We all really liked this hotel. It is in a convenient neighborhood, very close to the Archeological Museum, Piazza Dante where you can find shops, and Piazza Bellini which is peaceful and has a number of nice restaurants and cafes.

The family room was really nice. It was quite big, and very bright. There was a skylight and another window way up high. The room was on the ground floor and had very high ceilings. The beds were nice and comfy. The only small problem was that the shower was slow to drain.

The decor and architecture of the hotel are a big plus. The hotel is built against an old wall, which features prominently in the lobby, as well as a view into an ancient aquaduct. Other than the old wall, the decor is very modern. Across a tiny courtyard, there was a breakfast room and a lovely outdoor patio with a roof, where you could sit and drink your coffee. The breakfast had lots of variety, including really nice fresh fruit, good pastries, and cheese. Besides the espresso available at breakfast, they put out a hotpot and instant coffee around the clock which I really appreciated because I like to get up early and get some coffee first thing.

Some people reported in their reviews that they felt the street the hotel is on was scary and called it an alley. I disagree. The street is a typical Neapolitan narrow street, not an alley. It seemed perfectly normal. One evening, we came back at midnight and did not feel unsafe at all - of course, we had our three loud kids with us who could have scared off anyone :-).

The one downside is that some of the reception staff seemed like slackers. An example - Me: "Where can we find a grocery?" Reception: "Right down the street" Me: "That one is closed now" Reception shrugs: "I have no idea then. They should be open". As it turned out, we found another grocery two blocks away. Reception staff should know stuff like that, or at least have a list available to them of nearby store locations. I also discovered our passports were left unattended for about 45 minutes after we had first checked in. No one was at the desk for that time, and the passports were in plain view.

On the other hand, other reception staffers were more friendly, and when my daughter fell and hit her head, one reception person came running with ice and sympathy.

Room Tip: The family room on the ground floor is great! But the wifi works better in the other part of the hot...

Very nice hotel in a good location, close to Piazza Dante. Big and clean room with new furniture. Well soundproofed for the outside noise but unfortunately the room doors let all the noise in the hall of the hotel to get inside during the night... but anyway, after a busy day in this chaotic city, you sleep like a baby :)
Good breakfast too. Would recommend it !
