“Location and price”
Reviewed 25 August 2013

the hotel is right next to the train station making it ideal for those arriving on late trains and flights (airport is 15-20 mins away by public bus).

rooms were small but clean, shower was powerful and air con worked fine. the breakfast was typical european, read ham, croissants and eggs, but very much like a hostel.

for the price it was great value though, and i would certainly go again. anyone expecting more for 30 euros has too high expectations.

staff were very helpful and wifi free and string in public areas

Room Tip: rooms at the front are bigger but noisier

This hotel is far from ideal, because the rooms/bathrooms were very very small and the ventilation wasn't effective; the room was old looking, and it was extremely hot if you trurned off the air conditioning. Talking about air conditioning, we had a hard time turning it off, because it wasn't responsive. The opposite case happened to our friends who couldn't turn it on. The hotel doesn't have its own parking lot, so we had to find a place to park the car streets away. The ladies from the reception were nice, but there were too many minuses to return to Hotel Ideal.

It's like the famous Muppet Show talk between Waldorf and Statler:
Statler: "We got our money's worth tonight" ... Waldorf: "But we paid nothing!" . Statler: "that's what we got!" .
The hotel is located in the very heart of Napoli, and offers very basic services for a really low price. So you know what to expect. For us it worked for one night.

Our family of five had a lovely stay here in the first week of August, in a five-bed room (one double, three singles), with en-suite. We were given room 50, at the end of the corridor on the first floor. This was great for us - no through "traffic" noise from the corridor, and we had the added bonus of an outdoor patio area, which was great for us once the kids were asleep. We could also pick up the hotel free Wi-Fi signal from it. The room air-con worked a treat. The bathroom wasn't enormous and showed signs of aging, but the cheerful cleaning staff had done their best to clean what they could.

The breakfast was served in the basement, and for the price, we couldn't fault it. We always found there to be more than enough cooked breakfast and warm croissants available.

There's a nice little bar, reasonably priced, too. The "reading room" is pleasant enough and we all hung out there at times, using the free Wi-Fi. The staff were all very helpful and pleasant.

The location is city-centre, and so you shouldn't be surprised to find yourself situated in a busy city-centre. It's great for catching buses and trains. Can't see why people complain about this on Trip Advisor, but then we didn't have a room at the front of the building.

Whilst it wasn't up-market, I can't say I was mis-lead from the website, and so, hey, you get what you pay for. We would be more than happy to stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the end of the corridor on the first floor.

The Hotel Ideal is right next to a large building site, as they are building a new Metro station. This is not on the booking sites and people need to be aware before booking, as it is noisy from about 6.30am on, to say nothing of unsightly! Apart from this, hotel staff were helpful and eager to advise how to get to the various tourist sites. Hotel near to many restaurants, and central for train and tram.

This is a hotel that is at a very nice Location. It is very near to Naples Central Station which is a big advantage. It is easy to find .

We arrived at the hotel at 11:30 am. Our booking mentioned that the hotel check in time is 12:30 PM so we were prepared to relax for 1 hour and then take our room.
Once we reached the hotel, there was a nice lady who greeted us warmly. She seemed to understand English nicely. But we were told that our rooms will not be ready till aftenoon 2:00 PM . I asked her that on the booking it was mentioned that the check in time is 12:30 PM but she said that the room cannot be ready before 2:30.
So we planned to keep our luggage at the hotel and head out on our excursion in Naples and around.
When we returned back in the evening , we were given our room keys and we headed to our room.
The rooms seem to be situated in a maze on the first floor. The ambience of the hotel is nice with a bar on the first floor as well but you need to keep on walking around the maze until you find your room.

The room was a nice double bed room. We had asked for an AC room. There was a nice ambience in the room.
The AC of the room did not have a remote control but was operated from switch on the wall which we figured out after a search in the room.
The AC did not work properly and did not cool the room. Since it was night and we were tired , we thought to complain about it at the reception the next day.
So , we planned to sleep with the Windows Open (that was a bad decision). The night was tormented with Mosquito bites.

The breakfast was served in the hotel itself and was quite ordinary. The breakfast location was in the basement and was quite a congested area. So the ambience there was not good at all.

Next day morning I asked the person at the reception to provide us a remote control for the AC as it was not cooling but he said that it has to be operated from the switch and can be put on and there is no remote control for the same.

Since we were in a rush to go and travel so we headed out after discussion with him.
In the evening when we returned , i complained the lady again about the AC , but she humbly replied that it was a Sunday and so no one would be there to check and could only be checked next day.
So , we had to spend our last night in the hotel without AC as well and with Mosquitoes and the noise coming from the street.
