First let me tell you that Naples is one of our favourite destinations. It has a character all of its own and is full of life.
This was the first time we stayed in the Royal Continental and we were very pleased with the experience. The best hotels in Naples are those on the seafront with wonderful views over the bay and the Royal did not disappoint.
The reception staff were welcoming and efficient and our room comfortable. We had one of the top floor bedrooms which had a fantastic spacious balcony with views over the historic castle, Castel dell'Ovo.
There is a small rooftop pool area but we were happy with the sunbeds on our balcony, its not really warm enough in May for full-on sunbathing!
Breakfasts were good, lots of choice and the chance of a table at the window to further admire the sea views.
Whilst we were there Bruce Springsteen was in concert in the Piazza del Plebiscito and the following day we understood from the reception staff that he had stayed at the Royal.
The only negative we have is that one evening a party was held in the function room on the top floor (the floor above our bedroom) and it was very noisy…
Otherwise a great stay.More
