“Great area, good standard, what was expected.”
Reviewed 24 August 2014

I spent five nights in this hotel and I was very pleased to see that it was what I was expecting: the area is really nice (we had a room with a view to the castle), the staff very friendly (kudos to the ones taking care of the restaurant, very attentive and polite) and the overall experience really made us relax after a tiring sightseeing day. The only thing I can mention on the negative side are a couple of details: our doorway had huge cracks around, which didn't allow for a positive first impression, and the hotel room was not fully intuitive (we had to call the reception twice to understand how to open the windows). Moreover, the pool is a bit small and usually crowded, but it is high season anyway, so we were happy there was a pool at all. Overall, I would certainly return here at some point when in Naples or the Amalfi Coast.

Room Tip: Choose a room with the view to the bay: yes, it is more expensive, but totally worth it.

We stayed at the Royal for 4 nights in August, we paid extra for a superior room with sea view and I'm so glad we did. The balcony was just big enough for two chairs but perfect to sit out and enjoy the view over to Castel Ovo (please excuse my spelling!) and the panoramic sea views. We asked for a high floor as the street along the sea front gets very busy and quite noisy at night.
The room was clean, a good size and had sky tv. The beds were very firm. Air conditioning functioned but was still very warm in the room, but that's what happens when you visit at the hottest time of the year!!
There was a bank two doors down, a supermarket round the corner to buy bottles of water and a fridge in the room to keep them cool. 10 mins walk to the shopping district, to the functional rail to take you up the hill to Castel St Elmo and many many restaurants and bars to choose from.

The hotel staff all spoke English, very friendly and helpful. The drinks are pricey, but it's a four star hotel, they always are!

The pool isn't huge but located on the roof with plenty shade and a welcome cool dip! You can have snacks on the terrace too.

A very pleasant stay!

Naples itself I was concerned about all the pickpockets etc but we saw none of this but was on the cautious side just incase.

We only stayed for one night and didn't get to use much of the hotel facilities (pool, gym). The room we got was very good size and had a large balcony with sea view which would have been lovely to sit out if it were warmer when we visited. the staff (reception and bar) were very helpful and professional. We got our bus tour tickets from reception, they also called a taxi for us to get to the airport early in the morning. Good selection was served at breakfast. hotel is in a great location, on a promenade, with lots of restaurants around. a bit a way from the city centre but still walkable.

This hotel was the icing on the cake for our holiday esp when we were upgraded to a sea view room - loved everything about it - pool ws a little small but was out most of the day so didnt get to use it anyway. Staff were friendly and efficient - the lady in the breakfast room ws friendly and gave us top tips for our stay. The rooms are not modern but have a grand feel about them - our rooms were clean and well cared for. There is a great nightlife all around - restaurants, bars, ice cream bars, bike hire all within walking distance

Room Tip: definately pay extra for sea view

Location, location, location. When my wife and I travel in Europe, we try to walk everywhere, so the location of the hotel is of prime importance. We walked everywhere we went in Naples, except to the Capodimonte and to the airport; even then, taxis are available just outside, or the desk will call one for you. The location of the Royal Continental is unparalleled in Naples; there is no second that we’ve found.

We stayed at the Royal Continental in 2012 and liked it so much that we stayed there again in 2014. We reserved rooms with ocean views both times and were extremely pleased with both of our rooms. Our ocean-view rooms both had balconies. The first balcony was fairly small (maybe 5 feet by 4 feet); on it were two chairs; it was large enough to stand on without moving the chairs. The second balcony was very large (maybe 12 feet by 20 feet); on it were a table, two chairs, and two lounge chairs with a small table between them.

The view of the Bay of Naples and the Castel dell’Ovo (Castel of the Egg) is fabulous – it is directly across Via Partenope from the hotel. Furthermore, all of the hotel staff was great; they could not have been nicer or more helpful. True, the breakfasts could have been better, but they were adequate and not unlike breakfasts in many Italian hotels.

Room Tip: Sea views are worth the extra charge.

We checked in on 22nd July, we had arrived earlier than planned so we had drinks in the hotel 'Lounge Bar' where staff were helpful and friendly. We stayed on the 3rd floor and the view from our balcony was wonderful. Equally the view where we sat and eat breakfast looking across the bay was amazing.

WiFi was free and required you to get a code from reception and staff here were also friendly and helpful. One afternoon we went up to the roof where there is a pool. This was reasonably sized and I enjoyed swimming in it.

We did sometimes have trouble with getting the TV in the room to work but this was not a big concern as we were busy sightseeing a lot of the time.

After spending the day out we would normally finish off the evening in the lounge bar looking across at the city.

Overall a Nice, Friendly and Clean hotel close to a string of restaurants and the port to Capri, Ischia ect... Naples is Amazing!

After having a anticlimax at the San Michele Therme and SPA hotel at Sant' Angelo Ischia this was just heaven. Great room, fantastic balconyview and location and must of all, fantastic service all the time, fast and very professional.
