I Portici is a great hotel in a perfect location.
A few things you may want to bear in mind:
Personally the food options were out of my price range so I didn't indulge but they do have a voucher at reception that gives you ten euros off the fifteen euro breakfast.
Why you would want to spend so much when you can get two fresh croissants and a coffee further down via independenzia is beyond me.
There are at least 4 different coffee and pastry places further down the road, turning left out of the hotel !
Although the customer service was very good I was left waiting for 15 mins because the card to my door was not working, I then had to insist on changing rooms for speediness since I was meeting friends in barely 15 minutes more and it became clear that although efficient the staff were definately 'relaxed' ! The wait is the only thing that has lost them a star for me.
Worth noting that during the summer, concerts occur in the adjacent park-these are loud booming affairs that don't finish till just past midnight, bring ear plugs or ask for a room facing inwards.
I did both but my key-card malfunctioned as described unfortunately for me so I ended up with booming music till half past midnight. Again the staff are somewhat blazé about this as it is beyond their control. Just ask for a different room if it really bothers you.
All in all a brilliant stay.
