This was by far the most luxurious, yet least expensive hotel we stayed in on our beautiful trip to Italy. I had read reviews of this hotel before visiting and people are correct: Naples is not a great city. But this is a terrific hotel. An oasis! We had to stay in Naples one night on a stopover. We walked around town and saw all we needed to see and decided to spend the evening in the hotel. We sat in the gorgeous, quiet, spacious courtyard at the outdoor couches and tables under the giant umbrellas and snacked and drank and eventually ate dinner and couldn't believe how small the bill was when they brought it to us. It was one of our favorite times on the trip.
BEST PARTS: Clean, luxurious, well-appointed rooms. Much fancier for 100 Euros than our much more expensive hotels in Rome and Venice. Soft fluffy comforters, lots of room, flatscreen TV's with more channels than I've ever seen before in Europe. An on-site free shuttle transports a couple times in the afternoon to a tourist area to walk around near the port, and brings you back later if you wish. Great food at the restaurant. Very nice and accommodating staff. Very attractive property. Offers safety and seclusion in a not-very-nice part of town. Chilly perfect air conditioning. Great shampoos and soaps. Terrific full shower. We actually ordered a burger and fries at the restaurant and it was one of the best we'd ever had! Breakfast is not free, but it's an excellent presentation and a great breakfast. I think it was 10 Euros.
YOU SHOULD KNOW: It's a bit off the beaten path. You won't want to walk around outside the hotel much. Take a taxi to the shopping areas or port. Or make use of the hotel shuttle. Pay for wifi or use the free computers near the lobby. I don't think anything about this hotel will disappoint you except maybe that it's in Naples, which is not the best city in Italy.
ONE LITTLE THING: I left a makeup bag full of expensive makeup there and emailed the hotel in hopes they would save it for me but never heard back.
