Parteno Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #583 of 801 Naples B&B and Inns
Reviewed 25 May 2010

Thanks to the frequent mention on Trip Advisor of The Azalea Room at Parteno B & B, my wife and I enjoyed our stay in Naples. A special thanks to Sonia and Carlos who made our stay comfortable; they were both particularly helpful with travel arrangements.
The Azalea Room has a lovely view of the Bay of Naples. Like most B & B's, the breakfast is modest. But it was a comfortable palce at a reasonable price.

If you want a small, friendly hotel in the best part of town, overlooking the Bay of Naples and Vesuvius then this is the place for you. Much better than the swanky 5 * hotels nearby with their over inflated prices. Whilst only one of the bedroooms is on the front of the hotel, the 5 cosy well equipped side rooms are perfectly adequate and great value for money. They have lots of character, as does the host of this charming hotel, Alex, who speaks impeccable English. Nothing is too much trouble: airport pick ups, bottles of Prosecco, tourist info, recommendations where to eat, guide books and maps to loan.... The delightful breakfast room with lovely wrought iron furniture has a small balcony overlooking the Bay, even if your bedroom does not.

Ended up staying at Parteno when our plane was cancelled due to the volcanic ash cloud malarkey. Gorgeous little B&B in one of the nicer areas of Naples, right on the sea front (though only one of the bedrooms actually has a sea view). Friendly and helpful staff who spoke excellent English and were extremely accomodating to the plight of their guests (almost every one staying there when we went was stranded and trying to get home) - free calls to UK landlines from the bedroom phones, let us use their computer and printer to book stuff, were able to get free Wifi signal on our laptop (was either the hotel's or hacked from a neighbouring apartment). Lovely Napolitan architecture (rooms with high ceilings and long windows). Extremely clean. Fruit bowl and weather forecast card each day. Sky TV in each room (only english channel we could find was BBC world news, but spent time watching badly-dubbed episodes of mythbusters). Only mini-gripe was that the beds and pillows were very hard, so not the comfiest nights sleep I've ever had. Had a slight shock when collecting the bill as my dad had somehow got the impression that it was 250euros for both rooms for 2 nights, instead of per room, but oh well, was better than being shacked up in a dodgy motel or sleeping in the airport like some people ended up doing during the ash-cloud saga.

This small hotel is in a great location on the Bay and within walking distance of great shops, restaurants and cultural sights. The host, Alex, was so attentive and helpful. He is first class! I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

You will not find a better placed B&B in Naples, nor a friendlier one.

The best hotels in Napoli are along the Lungomare, right across from the harbor, offering breathtaking views of Vesuvius and the blue sea and green islands. Alas, these hotels are wildly expensive. But no problem!

The Parteno is hidden away on this very same street, a tiny place with spacious (for Italy) rooms named after flowers. I stayed in Tulipia, which had a view of the sea from the side. It was much quieter than most rooms in Naples and had pretty furniture, marble floors and a comfortable bath.

Naples can be a scary place for a woman traveling alone, but the Parteno changed all that for me.

When I got off the plane, I hopped into a cab (18 euro, fixed price from airport) for the short ride to the Parteno. Carlos greeted me and I soon met the fabulous Cinzia, a beautiful black-haired woman who's ready to suggestions on everything from museums to walks. She even gave me recipes!

She helped me get over my jet lag and out onto the streets. She can also book travel to Pompeii, Ishcia and wherever else you want to go.

Not only is the Parteno on a safe lovely street with plenty of restaurants and coffee places, but the most glamorous shopping areas in Naples are an easy stroll away. Armani, D&G and more. Keep strolling and you'll come to the opera house and the archeological museum, one of the greatest in the world, where the treasures from Pompeii are stored.

Breakfast is served in a pretty little room overlooking the Bay of Naples. Cornettos with coffee, yoghurt, and a selection of jams. A pleasant, serene way to start the day.

I loved the Parteno and plan to go back next year!

We chose this B&B for the great location, right on the sea, even thoug expecting problems in communication, as the guide where we found it is very clear about the lack of knowledge of English language spoken by members of the staff. But upon our arrival...what a nice surprise! The hotel manager, Ms Cynthia, welcomed us in a way that made we feel at home and most of all, her command of English language was impeccable. We had the opportunity to meet other members of the staff: Danielle, the young receptionist and Xavier, the night manager. Both of them spoke English fluently so..don't worry: the Parteno's staff will be able to give you all the assistance and information you may need. The breakfast was served in a room overlooking the entire bay of Naples, the stunning view of Capri while eating is worth experiencing. Thank you, Parteno!

I came to Italy this summer and staied here on a recomendation of friends. Was it a good choice!!! This is a prime location, right across from the water and within walking distance to everything. All the staff spoke english which is lucky because few people do in Naples. They were very helpful in planning activities and finding good shopping spots =). The rooms are really cute and modern and I just had a wonderful time, Thanks Parteno!!!
