Parteno Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #598 of 816 Naples B&B and Inns
Reviewed 17 August 2010

We stayed at B&B Parteno on the recommendation of friends.
We were not disappointed. Alex was a wonderful host (from his emails I had thought he must be an english speaking native but was surprised to find he is a "Napoletano verace") His staff was just as welcoming and helpful.
Position is great, the place has the feel of an upper class home, the breakfast room and front bedroom have a fabulous view of the Bay of Naples and there is plenty of literature and info on what to do as well as free WIFI and free phone calls for Europe, UK and USA.
Had it not been for Alex's suggestion, I would never have discovered the Chiaia area in the evening with its busy bars and aperitivo scene, which was one of the highlights of our stay.
I enjoyed this place and would definitely stay there next time - hope to be back soon.

Alex, the owner of the Parteno Bed and Breakfast and his team (Carlos, Sonia and Valentina) really go out of their way to help you and make your stay enjoyable and memorable. We stayed in the room called Azalea, which has two windows, one overlooking the Bay of Naples with views of Capri and Castel dell'Ovo and a side window with a view of Castel dell'Ovo. This is the best of the six rooms located on the first floor (lift and stairs give excellent access). All of the rooms have quiet air conditioning with a remote control. The doors that open inwards to give access to the small balconies have shutters and curtains. The bathrooms are not particularly large, but are adequate and clean (wash basin, shower, wc and bidet). The room is large with tall ceilings and has a television although we did not use it. A wardrobe and chest of drawers gives plenty of torage space for clothes and the small fridge is a great way to cool water and soft drinks.

Parteno Bed and Breakfast is about 300 metres from many much more expensive hotels and is within a few minutes walk of some good restaurants. The breakfast is served by Carlos and he really looks after you. All of Alex's team speak english and are very friendly and helpful.

Be careful when out walking in Naples as there are pick pockets who take advantage of tourists, so do not wear expensive watches, neck chains or bracelets when walking around Naples.

There are some fixed rate taxi fares, but taxis can be expensive and some taxi drivers try and cheat you. It cost us 29 Euros to get to the Parteno Bed and Breakfast from Naples airport and 25 Euros on the return trip. Most taxi drivers were helpful and a trip to the railway station costs about 10 Euros from the Parteno Bed and Breakfast and about 15 Euros to get back from railway station to the Parteno Bed and Breakfast.

We had some really interesting walks around Naples. Go along the Via dei Tribnali and you can have a pizza in Pizzeria Presidente Di Ernesto Cacialli where the Naploi pizza was created. You can also visit the underground caves and see what the romans and greeks did to use the space created from excavating stone as a way of supplying water (to the left of San Paola Maggiore). The tour includes walking through some narrow passages with a candle and was very enjoyable. There are some interesting shops and museums although they are renovating some of the exhibits in the Museo Archeologico Nazionale until October 2010 and so we wwere not able to see some of the exhibits on Pompeii.

We visited Pompeii (train from Naples) and had a really interesting guided visit (20 Euros per person including 11 Euros to get into Pompeii). We also visited Mont Vesuvious by taking a bus from Pompeii (16.5 Euros including 6.5 Euros to get into the National Park). We walked for about 30 minutes from the coach setting down point to the top and walking around it with great views of the crater and the sulphur smoke coming up.

We also visited Herculaneum (train from Naples), which is better preserved than Pompeii and equally fascinating.

There are also opportunities to take boat trips to Capri (32 Euros return per person), Sorrento (20 Euros return per person) and Ischia (32 Euros return per person) from Napoli Beverello. All were enjoyable.

Do take the boat trip around Capri (14 Euros per person). It was wonderful as was the trip on the funicular, followed by the bus trip and chair lift to get to the top of the island. We found a great place for ice cream (including dairy free ices) and special cakes (R Buonocore, Via Vitt Emanuele, 35, just off Piazza Umberto I).

When we went to Sorrento we walked up the stairs, rather than catch the bus and it was a great way to see some great views of the sea. Gelateria Antonio Cafiero on the north side of Corso Italia, just west of Piazza Tasso serves some great ice cream and some dairy free ices!

I hope that you enjoy staying at the Parteno Bed and Breakfast as much as we did. You will not find more friendly or helpful staff.

There is so much to do in and around Naples, that we hope to return.

We stayed in this hotel following the recommendations on this website, but we were very disappointed with the standard and cleanliness of the room. The room was very aged, and very dark. The bed was very uncomfortable, and the 'side view' of the sea was actually just the building site below, and if I craned my neck, I caught a glimpse of the sea.
It is a no frills hotel located in a decent area of Naples, but it is definitely not value for money.

There is no place like home but if I could have a home away it would be at Parteno B&B. Alex, the owner, was the most lovely, wonderful, and welcoming host I could ask for. My first stop on a long trip through Southern Italy was at his place...and thank goodness! His hospitality, generosity, and guidance were the most amazing gift I could ask for when traveling abroad. The B&B is so charming and comfortable. It was the perfect location..super safe, beautiful waterfront spot next to a great park or waterfront to walk in and near any amazing food or activity you would want. Clean, cozy, private, affordable, and really made my stay in Naples all the more amazing. He is always booked so if you can get a room there do not hesitate to book it! Already planning to stay again when I go back this fall.

PROs
* We stayed for just one night pretty much in transit and this place was ideal
* The main highlight is the friendliness and accommodating nature of the staff from our very first conversation with Alex and until the end
* Erica went out of her way to help us find the right ferry schedules. Her suggestion that we take a small bag with us to the islands and leave most of our luggage with the B&B until our return to Naples was extremely valuable and helpful! Luggage is transported on ferries and by porters according to number of pieces so it helps to carry less! Also sometimes you have to lug things around yourself so its best to travel light!
* Great location close to the ports if you're moving on to the islands off Italy such as Capri, Ischia, Isole Aeoli etc
* They arranged a fantastic driver names Gianni of World Tours to pick us up. We used his services once later too. Very polite, well informed and efficient!

CONs
* This is a simple no frills place so dont expect anything fancy
* Just 6 rooms and a tiny breakfast room cosy for us so long as you dont plan to spend much time at the hotel!

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.
