Wow - what a nice surprise in the historic center of Naples. The Bellini House is ideally located across from the bustling Piazza Bellini, right in the heart of the historic center of Naples. The Piazza itself springs to life at night and is lined with cafés where you can sip a Spritz Italian style.
The Bellini House had just opened when we stayed there (June 2014). It's on the first floor of an old Napoli building where the high ceilings, the terrace-corridor to access the rooms and the amazing relaxing view on lush gardens will make you want to stay. The rooms are specious, über clean and the bed is comfy. Only point of improvement: the shower is a tad small.
Otherwise, the hotel's decoration is great, mixing modern and ancient in great style. The owner, Roberto, will greet you in the most friendly way and is super accommodating. The breakfast is included but what you get is a voucher to have breakfast at a café on Via Santa Maria di Costantinopoli (hopefully Roberto will work on that and offer breakfast on the great terrace-corridor overlooking the garden). It's a great place.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Bellini House - the name stems from the idea that we wanted an place downtown where we could invite our friends and guests -- something more than your standard B&B. We imagined a home away from home that everyone could consider "theirs". A house which was made to receive guests, entertain them, intrigue them and most of all, allow them to relax and get to know the city of Naples. Each room has its own, defined identity with a little story to tell. Inside, you can find objects that were lost and others that were found. Some were re-covered, recycled, up-cycled; while others we re-invented, re-used and transformed. Each object, with its own story and soul, blends seamlessly together with other pieces of design and art throughout the house. If you want, you can look at them, use them, read them, share them, admire them and in some cases even purchase them. Breakfast is served with the intent of spoiling our guests. The products we offer are mostly organic and/or "local specialty products" which we would like to introduce to our guests and friends Breakfast can be enjoyed in the living room, in bed, out on the balcony or directly at our 800a.d. breakfast bar (check out the story behind this one). The main hall also has a little lounge area with designer chairs and recycled military coffee tables. In the spring time, it'll feel like being in the countryside, when you enjoy your cappuccino and cornetto overlooking a lush, green gardens from the private balcony of your room. The perfect way to transform your vacation in Naples. A getaway within your getaway - a moment of pure bliss and intimate meditation. Within The Bellini House, you can make yourself feel at home, as you skim through your favorite magazine in the living room, abbandon yourself to conversation with other guests at the bar, relax and read a book on the many couches and lounge chairs, or sink back in a cozy chair on the balcony, watching the sun set over a glass of fine wine from our cellar. To help us with the interiors, we asked three, young and emerging local artists to nararate their stories and "speak" to our guests by transmitting their ideas through their art. Piece by piece, their works create a dialogue between them and the walls and rooms of the house, giving birth to a new form of artistic expression. ... more less
