We stayed at the Excelsior in late March 2013. While we found the rooms rather plain, the view to Capri, Mt. Vesuvius and the harbor certainly made up for that. The two sea view rooms we had were large and comfortable with large, clean ( if somewhat dated) baths.Everything else was wonderful. The staff was very pleasant and accommodating - the front desk was nice, the housekeeping was very good ( our kind housekeeper helped us retrieve something that had we had accidentally thrown away). MASSIMO, the bar tender was terriffic! An elegant man in a crisp white jacket, he made us feel at home and as if we were important guests. While the hotel was a peaceful respite from the chaotic streets of Naples, Massimo really made this place stand out.
We also loved the breakfast on the rooftop with a view to Capri. Here the staff was also very welcoming. I think we were there at the beginning of the "season" and there didn't seem to be a lot of food choices but enough. It didn't seem as if the hotel was very full in March.
The weather was warm&dry. Perhaps because of this and the fact that Via Partenope has recently become traffic free, we did hear people out by the waterfront until the early hours of the morning. If possible, I would recommend putting on the AC and closing your windows on weekend evenings.
The hotel is a 10 minute walk along the waterfront to the ferries to Capri & Ischia and close to Da Ettore Pizza and dell 'Avvocato on Via S. Lucia as well as Piazza Plebescito and the via Chaia as well as some of the high end shopping streets in Chiaia ( a 10-15 minute walk for those who love to walk). We would definitely stay here again especially with children since this area seems less hectic and the hotel more family friendly than some of the (few!) other high end hotels in Naples.
