My husband and I stayed at this hotel one night and loved our elegant room with parquet floors and balcony overlooking the Bay of Naples. We especially appreciated the quiet atmosphere. Since the street between the hotel and the bay does not allow cars, you can keep the french doors open, lulled by the sound of the lapping water and occasional voices of pedestrians. It was the off-season just before Christmas so there was not a lot of night-time activity at the restaurants on the Borgo Marina--the little island crowded with restaurants that was visible from our room--which may have contributed to the deliciously quiet evening.
Most impressive was the front desk staff: We discovered on the day of our departure that our flight to London was canceled--as were all flights out of Naples because of flooding at Gatwick Airport. When we told the front desk about our problem, the staff instantly and efficiently swung into action, researching flights, and booked us on a flight out of Rome, reached easily by train in under two hours.
The staff also directed us to two excellent restaurants--Fresca, walking distance from the hotel, where we sat outside in the sun looking out on the Bay for a delicious pizza lunch surrounded by well-dressed Italians, and Da Dora for an excellent seafood dinner. The hotel is in a perfect location for exploring Naples as many of the most interesting sights architecturally are walking distance. We also took a day trip to Capri, which we enjoyed, as the hydrofoil leaves from a dock just a 10-minute taxi ride away.
