Of all of our hotel stays in Italy, this is the only one that had a balcony attached to the room for an outside view. Problem is, when you look outside, you see Naples...not much to look at there. Naples is a dump...trash on the streets...questionable people walking around...scary after dark. I'd recommend not walking around after night fall. The only reason we stayed in Naples for 2 nights was b/c we wanted to explore Capri and the Amalfi Coast towns and try the pizza at L'Antica Pizzeria Da Michele (supposedly the best pizza in the world). It was pretty good.
We arrived in Naples at 10 PM. Got out of the train station and had a hard time finding the hotel. We were walking around w/ our luggage and were scared of getting robbed. Questionable characters on the streets staring at us, crazy dogs running around on streets etc. Luckily a hooker was nice enough to guide us the right way. This hotel is a 5 minute walk from the Napoli Centrale train station (if you know where you are going). This hotel is a 20 min walk to Molo Beverello (port where you catch the jet for Capri). If you wanna catch the Circumvesuviana train to go to Pompeii or Sorrento, the station is just 5 mins away.
Majority of the hotel rooms are on the 6th and 7th floor. The room was spacious and we paid 52 Euros per night for a double bed room w/ a private bath. It had a telephone, refrigerator, and a balcony. Bed was clean and comfortable. Our toilet was interesting in that we had to push the button 3-5 times to get it to flush. It didn't bother us much since we figured out the trick to flush it. Breakfast is served in a nice private area. You can seat inside or sit outside on the terrace. Pretty nice setup. Breakfast was NOT good. The selection is pretty poor and the bread and cheese seemed stale.
The biggest problem we had with this hotel was that the staff was incompetent. Our AC didn't work when we checked in and when we called them, they would not give us a straight answer. They would make all kinds of excuses and lies about how it works alternate hours, alternate days, etc. etc. They even told us that they are coming up to check in our room in 10 mins and never showed up. We called them 4 times and nothing happened. Then at 3 AM, the AC just started working and pretty much worked the entire time. Also, when our parents called the hotel to talk to us, they kept them on hold forever and never transferred the calls to our room even though our parents were told that they are being transferred. So basically, figure things out for your self cuz if you expect help from the front desk, you're NOT gonna get it.
So over all it's a decent hotel but since the price point is good, that makes it a good value to stay here.
