The hotel is good.
However, the first question you should ask yourself is why? Why do you want to go to Naples? If it is unavoidable for example for work or as a 'dare', then brace yourself.
This hotel is like an oasis of calm amongst the chaos of 8 year olds on scooters, battered cars and people moving randomly amidst a cacophony of hooters. We have never been anywhere like Naples where there is so much disrespect for each other, other's property and the area in which they reside.
And so, onto the hotel. If you have chosen this hotel, I think you have made a decent choice.
Bedroom was nice and clean and there was a balcony with good views towards the sea in the distance.
The only thing to mention is that there is no air conditioning and it was very warm and airless in early April, so good luck to you if you're staying when it is hot outside!!!
The staff are friendly and the breakfast is reasonably good. They even had some (basic) gluten-free options.
The evening meal was interesting... the tuna was actually octopus and the prawns were clams, chips were crisps, but it was generally OK - 4 courses for €25. However, watch out for the wine - they were reluctant to give us a wine list and so we asked for the house white assuming it would be good value. It was perfectly adequate but not for €18!
Car parking is good, in the secured grounds, although when we arrived there was an event ongoing which meant much shuffling of vehicles.
The immediate environs of the hotel is slum-like - much like all of Naples that we saw and not a place you would want to venture out into - even in daylight. The reviews of the hotel we looked at said there were two local restaurants easily accessible from the hotel; despite searching, we could not find them within 15 minute walk. We survived and escaped back to civilisation.
