What a beautiful building! My room 131 faced the courtyard and had giant modern windows/doors opening to a spacious terrace with a table and two chairs. It overlooked a stunning courtyard.
The linens in my room were top notch. The bedding linens were so smooth I didn't want to get out of bed. There was a high quality bathrobe in the bathroom. Overall, I found my room spacious, clean and up to date. The ceilings were incredibly high. There were two complimentary bottles of water which is nice because most hotels will charge you! I found the service excellent.
If I ever found myself in Naples, Italy again, this would absolutely be my first choice for a hotel.
The hotel recommended a restaurant for pizza nearby. It's called Lombardi's and I have to say the pizza was out of this world! note: I eat a lot of pizza.
Transportation: Apparently the hotel has a pre-negotiated rate with a taxi service. Fare to the airport is 15 euro (I was charged 25 euro to get here; I didn't know about the rate) and 10 euro to get to the cruiseship terminal. I believe the train station is close (maybe walking distance).
Warnings: There are only stairs to the main entrance. I didn't see an elevator or ramp, but perhaps there is one somewhere?
Also, I arrived on a Sunday. Everything was closed except for some restaurants. The neighbourhood didn't seem like the nicest place to wander. Perhaps that may change today (Monday). There are so many warnings out there about pick-pockets and crime in Naples, so leave any valuables at home. I was told to carry my purse inside my sweater (if I was going to bring one with me). A group of kids (about 4) sort of swarmed me; they wanted to shake my hand, so I let them... while doing so I held on tight to my handbag with my free hand because there seemed to be a lot of commotion. I was told the pick pockets learn the trade a young age.
