Our family of 4 (kids 10, 12) stayed at the hotel in August as we had a very early morning flight to catch and hoped to squeeze in a bit more sleeping time by staying overnight near the airport. We took the Alibus to the airport and then walked 10 minutes to the hotel (it's just past the rental car parking lots) so it certainly is close. It also has a small pool area which is nice on a hot afternoon though bring your mosquito repellant because they were swarming during our visit. The hotel is clean, but somewhat tired and a bit old-fashioned. Moreover, we paid a hefty sum for a quad room which consisted of a queen bed and double hideabed. I'm always a little resentful when that happens as the sleep quality on a flimsy mattress is usually poor. When we got to our room we discovered that the staff had turned off the air conditioning and opened the windows until we arrived. Not a problem since the A/C came up quickly except that there were no screens on the window and several mosquitos had made it into the room. We all awoke with multiple bites the next morning which was very annoying. The hotel also lacks a restaurant. The staff directed us to a nearby place for dinner, which was very inexpensive, had good food and a great view, but sadly required wading along a worse-than-usual (which is saying a lot in Naples) garbage strewn street to get there. You're better off going to the airport and paying a higher price for food there. That way you'll still have an appetite when you arrive. If we had it to over again, we'd stay downtown at a newer, fresher hotel. We would have paid more for a taxi instead of the Alibus, but traffic would have been minimal early in the morning and we would have had a much more pleasant overnight stay. If you need a basic hotel to stay overnight in order to catch an early morning flight then this hotel fits the bill. Or if you're arriving late and will be picking up a rental car to drive and you don't want to start off in the dark, the hotel is adjacent to all the rental car companies so you could save an overnight's car rental cost by picking up your car in the morning and leaving in the morning. Otherwise, the "Charming" hotel isn't so much charming as much as it is "adequate."

We chose this hotel because it was the only airport hotel in Naples and we had a 6:40 am flight. I knew it was not in a great neighborhood and would be a marginal hotel. In retrospect, I wish we never stayed there. Yes the hotel did back up to the car rental return and it was beyond convenient for us but that is as far as it goes. In my opinion, the neighborhood is beyond scary. When we got to the front door of the hotel it was locked and you had to be buzzed in. In its heyday this was probably a cute hotel but it has not been updated in a significant period of time. Room was large but dated. Cleanliness was okay but not good. Plumbing was marginal and didn't work well. Thought there was a pizzeria next door which there was but it was closed. We had not eaten all day so hotel staff directed us to another pizzeria about 5 blocks away - it was a frightening 5 blocks with more trash than I have ever seen in a city in a developed country. I felt unsafe and out of place. Pizzeria was inexpensive and actually very good but not worth compromising my safety. Would never stay here again - if ever again, I would stay in sorrento and get an hour less sleep and stay in a quality establishment.

It takes literally 3 minutes drive from the airport, parking was free and easy to get to on hotel grounds. Rooms very basic and slight problem with air con unit but with small baby couldn't be bothered to move. They brought a crib when we asked but forgot sheets..! Overall it's good enough if you want a stop off for airport transfers etc but would never stay here other than that.

As everyone says, very convenient for early flights and dropping off the hire car.

Don't however accept a room at the front of the hotel. Very very noisy plus road vibration so request a room at the back and you'll probably be fine.

Decor is dated, must be 10+ years since the last redecoration and room smelt musty. A real shame as this hotel could make a fortune due to it's location near the airport and lack of any competition.

Staff were very nice and make the best of it.

A short 10 minute walk to the airport and they often have airport carts outside so you don't have to wheel all your suitcases. The staff are so nice and helpful. The rooms are fine and the beds are comfortable for an overnight stay. Most won't be spending a week there. The pizza restaurant chose by is an excellent option, but be careful of the mixed salad - they put salt on the lettuce. We highly recommend the Charming and have no complaints. It is right next to the car return place.
