“A Hidden Gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2013

Ill start with a refernce from mattfromlancs ... the place is hard to spot ... when you find the old gates of naples turn round... you will see a church in front of you... look to the left you will see the roma bar on the corner ... btw 1.20 euro for a beer .. fill up there before heading into town lol you'll pay average of 8 euro for the same bottle else where ... now between the church and the bar ... theres a big wooden door to a courtyard... ring the buzzer and ... up the stairs 2nd floor and your in ... theres a lift if needed ... the communal area is well equiped everything you would need and the room are clean tidy and better than most for italy ... francesca .. she owns the place is helpful not fluent in english but we got by cos i dont speak a word of italian.. i know im ignorant :P ... the place is a bargain for the price 45 euro works out round 39 quid i was staying in london few weeks back and you would pay a hundred there... if you want to have a secure clean base to explore from i would strongly recommend this place .... a final point ... matt i have to agree the cleaner was keen ... she must have two jobs cos she was hoovering outside to get our room ... i told her to go have a coffee she laughed and smiled and came back when we were ready to leave ... this place i would stay in again ... one final point... we got back round 12am and the only places open where a few restraunts near the station ... from the roma first right .... well priced and relaxed willing to feed and stay open as long as your eating and drinking... naples station is the roughest place ive ever been but 2 minutes away and you will be happy... naples and the surrounding area have alot to offer its a must visit... this place is well priced and a good base clean and tidy ... thankyou x

Room Tip: Find the Roma Bar and look for the big wooden door .. :)

B& B Donna Adelina is in a great place from which to experience Naples.The area is busy & bustling but that's Naples.The B&B is a great place though. Everything has been thought about. The welcome was warm.We were given advice about where to go & the name of a brilliant restaurant.The rooms were clean. The breakfast was especially good considering the hostess doesn't live on site. We loved it.

First, a warning. The area around the hotel is rough; not 'a bit grubby' (that describes the whole of Naples), but properly seedy at night. We didn't feel any hint of danger, but don't stay near the train station if you can't cope with seeing tramps and prostitutes.

Second caveat: its hard to spot the actual entrance, read the tip below if you do stay.

That out of the way, this place is great value. We paid EU45 per night, staying 4 nights in total, and were given a plushly decorated suite, virtually an apartment. It came equipped with fridge, TV and air con. A family would have had plenty of room. The decore has definitely seen better days, but at this price range it was above expectations.

Francesca (the owner?) was extremely helpful and friendly, recommending some very nice restaurants. Donna Adelina is a pensione (private B n B), not a hotel, so she wasn't around much, but was available by phone, and lives next door. Breakfast was self service, but very pleasant, cakes and biscuits were great- more coffee needed!

The only significant problem was the housekeeping. The cleaner seem rushed, toilet roll wasn't replaced twice and towels forgotten once. All easily solved, but irritating. Overall cleanliness was acceptable.

Definitely worth it if you like an authentic experience.

Room Tip: To find the Donna Adelina: 1. Go to Piazza Nolana (5 min from the central train station). 2. There...

Not only is B&B Donna Adelina in a perfect position, moments by foot to the train station, Piazza Garibaldi, Centro storico, Porta Nolana (etc., etc.) it is also an absolutely beautiful place to stay. Attention to detail in every aspect, it is the kind of accommodation that makes you feel instantly at home. Francesca and her sister are not only hospitable, but eager to assist and their sincere interest in making your stay pleasant is apparent. Hospitality aside, the rooms are impeccable, immaculately clean and elegantly decorated. The balcony overlooking Piazza Nolana was an unexpected amenity. This is a B&B I will return to every chance I get.
An added perk: it's only 500 meters from Napoli's famed L'antica pizzeria da Michele, home of some of the best pizza in Naples. Close enough to order take-out and enjoy your Margherita on your balcony, escaping the 2-hour wait times of those trying to dine-in.
With regards to those reviews criticizing the location as "dodgy", clearly they don't understand that every location in central Napoli falls within the "dodgy" category. Naples is not a village in Bavaria, this is Italy's Hells Kitchen. If you don't want "dodgy", then don't come to Naples. This is a disaster of a city, but that's what makes it beautiful.

Backpacking with a seven-month-old baby is a challenge. We needed somewhere with a central location, reasonable prices, and helpful staff who can accommodate our baby-specific needs. Francesca and the staff of Donna Adelina covered all of these and did so with wonderful hospitality. Without question, it was among the friendliest and most accommodating places we stayed in Italy.

The location, within walking distance of the train station, is rough but we never felt unsafe traveling with our son. The rooms are clean and comfortable, and the price is terrific. Especially when compared with the hotels our families stayed in around Fontana della Immacolatella, Donna Adelina is a terrific place.

Sorry, but after getting turned around and confused leaving the station, we were extremely disappointed with the locale of this B@B. Church next door? Right...if that's what you can call it. Dumpy trashy entrance, with naredowells eyeing you as you approach the dark dimly lit entrance. Oh yea, next door to a sexo shop, just the place you want to wander home to at night. Beware, be warned, wish we had.
