It would be nice if they had at least one English speaking channel. And the lighting in the room and bathroom is not very good. The room was very hot. $8 a night to use the internet is too much!! Even if you put up a 'do not disturb' sign housekeeping still comes in. Had a great view of the construction going on at the next building (they start work early so don't plan to sleep late). Staff was helpful/nice, location was pretty good and was within walking distance of several very excellent restaurants!!

Stayed here on two occasions on business and was very satisfied with the accomodations, staff, service and restaurant. The breakfast buffet is great and the view on the water is stunning. Strongly recommend, despite the hard matresses -- harder if you didn't have one...

My wife and I spent nine nights at the Hotel Royal Continental and had a great time. We were upgraded to a room with a view of the bay and Castel dell'Ovo, which was wonderful. The hotel service was excellent. The property is not plush, but you feel very welcomed and comfortable. The room and bathroom were both large and comfortable. There are plenty of wonderful restaurants in the vicinity; but we found ourselves at the hotel restaurant quite often as the food and selection there was excellent. The hotel is walking distance from numerous sights and train stations. Parking and WiFi are at extra cost, but the hotel does offer free 30-minute vouchers for use in the lobby. The breakfast is pretty good, except for the eggs (runny and fairly tasteless), pre-made American coffee (strong and bitter) and the croissants (not fresh). You can order fresh made Italian coffee free of charge from the wait help. If possible, I would rate it 4-1/2, but since the choices are only 4 and 5, I give it the edge for the upgraded room, excellent service and great on-site restaurant.

Despite renovation still lacking, the lobby and the restaurant of the hotel have a great view of the Med.Sea as same as the some rooms.The room ı stayed was nice.Up to me if you are not looking for a luxury hotel,it has everything you need for a comfortable stay.

Great location at the seafront, within easy walking distance from both the centre and chiaia district. The rooms are a bit dated, but still very spacious. Efficient service. But the main reason to stay here are the views over the bay of Naples, Capri and Vesuvio. The most beautiful views in this beautiful city.

We only had time to stay one night, but will definitely be back next time we go to Naples.
Yes- the rooms are a little dated, but in a charming way. Great, quiet location opposite the Castel Dell'Ovo and awesome breakfast!!

Room Tip: We didn't stay in an ocean view room, but I would recommend it

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. Large common areas , multiple meeting spaces , picturesque corners of relaxation, the Royal Continental sparkles elegantly with vintage charm thanks to the interiors designed by Gio Ponti , one of the greatest architects of the twentieth century.

All 397 rooms, of which most have large windows and a balcony facing the breathtaking view of the Gulf, are spacious and very bright. 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. Breakfast served by the sea, in addition to the buffet which offers freshly baked pastries by Hotel Royal Continental, including oven fresh Neapolitan sfogliatelle, pastry horns. Location of reference for events and meetings, the Royal Continental is a well known Conference Center of primary importance in the national scene. Equipped with the most modern equipment and complimentary Wi-Fi, the Conference Center is characterized by its many meeting rooms with natural light and sea views.
