Despite a few hiccups....we would stay there again.
The hotel has a great location right in the centre of Napoli at a walking distance of many sites. Its central position also put you in the heart of the atmospheric Napoli with a fairly shaby entrance and a dodgy lift that makes you first wonder where you are landing. Then you arrive at the reception at the first floor of this old building and everything is charming. The central attraction of the Decumani hotel is the dining room, which needs a bit of conservation work (Oh my god, did they really PIN a flag to the old walls and its golden decorations...noooooooo!) but offers a grand setting for the breakfast. The breakfast was simple but nice.
The rooms are large enough to accomodate a family with a child and the bathroom is comfortable.
We had a few misadventures...first after arriving , droping the suitcases and rushing to see the town, we were asked upon our return in the evening if we would mind changing rooms to free ours that was the only one with facilities for handicapped. of course we agreed wondering though if they could not have managed this better? but hey, they graciously offered us free access to the minibar to thank us so... Then the second night the air con broke down and it got a bit stuffy in there in the middle of the Italian summer... When we told the reception the next day, we had no surprise, no apologies, just a "ah ok, we will call the maintenance"... ah, ok...that's fine then...for the next guest!
but hey...overall, we did have a good experience and loved the location, we would stay there again.
