We booked this hotel following the raft of positive reviews on trip advisor but could not have been more disappointed. Contrary to what is said below this hotel is most definitely NOT good value for money. At the rate of 280 euros per night (despite being booked some 6 months earlier) this was by far the most expensive hotel of our 9 day tour of Venice, Rome and Naples, but unlike the former two cities, our room at La Ciliegina was far from worth the money. Labelled “deluxe” the room we were given had a tiny bathroom, with a shower which was filthy from limescale, and with very little storage. There was only one mirror in the room (which was in the bathroom – nothing full length), there was a handle missing from the chest of drawers, a stain on the bed cover and a chip on the wardrobe door. While I can see that the very white contemporary design of the bedroom would be great in the summer (as would the impressive roof terrace) no compensation was made for the fact that it was winter – the room had a cold tiled floor for which no slippers were provided, and the bedding was altogether too thin, and only one pillow each provided. The breakfast was very simple with no hot options, and so small that ingredients frequently run out. Finally we were very put off by the entrance – a dark courtyard with a lift going up 3 floors.
This review would not be fare however without pointing out some positives – the staff were exceptionally polite, attentive and friendly, the design was fresh and modern, and the location near to Naples’ castle and coast was great. This hotel would however, in my experience of European hotels, be better classed as a three star, and our “deluxe” bedroom labelled “standard”. Overall, I would have been much happier with my stay if I had been paying a lot less.
