We stayed in one of the superior twin rooms ('Junior Suites') in the Hotel in July 2014.
The hotel is close to the main train station and metro, making access very easy. I think it would be unfair to criticise the hotel's location; while it is located in a run-down, 'messy' neighbourhood, in reality, the majority of Naples is messy and run-down. Admittedly the view from the hotel is not up to much: our room overlooked a court yard, described by one of the other reviewers, but this was not a problem as we did not spend long in the hotel.
The room was excellent (once we found it; the room numbers seem a little puzzling and a maze leads you to the room). It features an upstairs sleeping area (with one large double and one single bed) and a reasonably sized downstairs area. The bathroom was good. The air conditioning was nothing short of exceptional, to the point of waking up with the room being too cold. Lifts slow, so we often used the stairs.
Breakfast was limited and often items had run out by the end of service (such as croissants).
Reception staff were quite helpful. 24-hour reception does exist and the staff seem almost pleased to welcome guests back late into the evening.
If I were looking for a reasonably priced hotel in the centre of Naples, I would recommend this, and would certainly return again.
