This is a hotel with a lot of character. The decorating choices are "interesting", and it is something of a maze to find your way up and down the stairs as the staircase is in a different spot for each floor. Our room was really quite large, with a kitchenette (which may or may not have worked, the shade-like thing to keep it out of sight was broken and I couldn't get it to stay up). The elevator only goes up to the 2nd floor and our room was on the 3rd which is a bit of a pain if you have heavy luggage. However as usual the staff are happy to help.
The real charm of this place was the people. An elderly man met us at the bar (the owner I assume) and was happy to chat about Naples - which he obviously loved. Also Maria who works at the front desk was terrific - both as a guide to the city and for helping us out at the hotel. One day after a drive of the Amalfi coast we arrived back at the hotel around 5:30pm and were looking for food (quick! since we were starving). The hotel restaurant doesn't usually open until 7pm, but she called down and had them open it early for us.
The hotel has wifi, but it only works right next to the reception desk.
I can't say that I personally cared for Naples (too chaotic and dirty) but if you're there this isn't a bad place to stay.
