“Very good location”
Reviewed 24 October 2012

Travelling from Canada, we stayed at this beatiful hotel facing the ocean and acroos the street from the marina. The continental buffet was very good and you have acces to all kinds of restaurant on the main street as well as at the marina. If you orer fish at dinner time, please inquire how much to expect topay as it is sold by the kilo. We had quite the surprise when we saw our bill. Room and bathroom are very nice/clean and spacious. We took a day tour to Pompeii and Herculaneum.

Because we drove there, finding the hotel was a bit difficult but just stop and ask around and you will figure it out.

We visited the city on foot, did some shopping on the shopping strip.

OUR only disapointment was the streets are very dirty and the driving was insane.

I am a Spanish tourist visiting some friends in Naples.
With my boyfriend we were guests for three nights at this hotel which is located a few steps from the sea. Breakfast and lunch refined. All good. It is not expensive and is ultra-luxury.
Try at least once a typical Neapolitan coffee and pizza!
The only problem is the city transportation: never on time.
We'll be back next year at the Royal Hotel in Naples.

Brilliant position on the seafront opposite the Castel dell' Ovo.
The road outside is pedestrianised and unlike much of the Naples it is very quiet day and night.
Large clean rooms.
Food very good.
Lifts very slow.
No coffee making facilities.
Bussiness wireless internet in the rooms reasonable at 11euro for 24hours.
No guidebook in the room to explain the hotel/room facilities.

The area around the hotel is lovely - lots of nice places for dinner and the view from the ocean front rooms are amazing! Felt safe in the surrounding area and had lots of activites to do in the evening with loads of restuarants down the promenade and an Ice cream shop open until 5am!

On the not so good side; Staff are helpful at the front desk but not so much at breakfast. Pay for an upgrade if you can afford it as the rooms without the views are dated and feel a bit claustrophobic!

The hotel staff were helpful and friendly. The hotel enjoys a great location,on the waterfront, directly across from an old castle. The view is wonderful. The street is closed to traffice and there are many restaurants in the area.
The room was a good size by European standards,very clean, and the price was reasonable.
THere was a nice roof top area with a pool.
I would not hesitate to stay there again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a balcony.

The location of this hotel is one of the best in Naples. Sea front, the road outside is closed to trafic..so it"s quiet.... load of restaurants around, great. Staff were very helpful. great alround. buffet breakfast was very good as well.
The only negative thing is the state of the hotel.
I would compare it to a well used airport hotel, clean, good aircon, good bed, sea view, but could do with re decorating, needs urgent redecorating ! The hotel is stuck in the 1970's.
But if they did, they could put up the ir prices ! So you can't have everthing.

Four stars for the Hotel Royal Continental, a hotel on the seafront promenade of Naples with a fascinating past, rebuilt in 1955 by Ferdinando Chiaromonte where once stood the Grand Hotel Royal des Etrangers . Today it is known as a structure of great prestige framed by the extraordinary beauty of the Bay of Naples.

On the Floor Museum Gio Ponti you can stay in one of the 24 rooms with wooden furnishings and fixtures designed specifically for the Hotel by Ponti. Suspended furniture, three-drawer chests with feet, and magazine racks and lamps in satin brass integrated into headboards from briar have made the history of Italian design. In stunning New York style, the Roof on the tenth floor, from which the beautiful view of the ancient Borgo Marinari and the legendary Castel dell'Ovo can be enjoyed, presents the one of a kind sea-water pool designed by Gio Ponti, published in 1954 on the cover of Domus. Guests are offered the solarium, outdoor bar, Fitness Center, massages booked in advance and two exclusive restaurants with spectacular panoramic views that stretch from the Vesuvius to the hill of Posillipo and the island of Capri.
