Our stay at Palazzo Decumani was most pleasant. We took the bus from the airport to Centrale train/Stazione and walked to the hotel. From there it was a walk to the hotel. Graffiti is prevalent on many buildings so we weren’t sure what to expect upon arrival to the hotel. However, we were pleasantly surprised to see a classy classic façade. As you enter, you face a beautiful chandelier hanging in the center of the winding circular stair. No worries, there is also an elevator. Check-in was very quick. All of the staff is personable and helpful, especially Barbara and Ornella at the front desk and Bartender Salvatore in the lobby bar – a good place to enjoy apperitivo before dinner or drinks afterwards. Even though the lobby and public areas are contemporary, the guestrooms have Italian/European charm. Everything is updated and clean, with wonderful bathrobes and slippers to make one feel at home. The hotel is beautifully situated in a quiet/safe area in the historic area and very convenient to many of Naples’ key sights and delicious restaurants. Our balcony faced a residential side street which gave us a good idea of daily life in Naples. We also found the local people to be friendly and eager to engage in conversation if approached. While locals will even warn (by gesturing their lower eyelid) for you to be careful of your possessions, we had no problem. Good advice still holds true that one should be aware of their surroundings when travelling. Our only negative comment would be breakfast in the dining room which was from 7:30 – 10:30 AM.
The dining room staff was equally friendly, but some items were not replenished on a timely basis after 9:20am when we got sat down. The 1 quiche was delicious but was not replenished once it was eaten . Given that it was all gone by 9 AM and the fact that we were told it is so easy to make, it was surprising that they only had one to accommodate more than a few guests. The bottom line regarding this hotel is - if we return to Naples, we would definitely want to stay at Palazzo Decumani!
