“A diamond amongst crystals...”
Reviewed 31 March 2014

What a fantastic weekend...we live in Sorrento, Italy and decided to have a family weekend in Naples...from the minute that I made contact with Hotel Rex nothing seemed to be a problem and everything continued on the same path of perfection...

Room Tip: We had a ground floor room..even though it became noisy early in the morning it didn't worry us...

Spent a night at Hotel Rex on 8th March. Had a very fantastic stay. I had to stay at the sea view room.

Very nice staff, great complimentary breakfast, very good location.

Room is small though but ok.

Hotel Rex is a great deal for the quality and location in Naples! I prefer to stay in this neighborhood, the hotel is a 2 minute walk from the water, and the area is clean and quiet. We enjoyed this area so much, the restaurants next door have great food and great views of the harbor and Vesuvius. When we were there we walked everywhere except the train station, but the bus stops 5 minutes from the door of the hotel. Every morning the staff would greet us and help us plan our day, very friendly! Rooms were very clean, standard size, ours had air conditioning. Breakfast was included for us, it was pretty average, pastries and coffee, but it was delicious! I plan on staying here again, and was sad to go!

Very clean and helpful. Not much English spoken. Nice rooms As it was new year there was nothing special put on and the breakfasts were a bit bland. Says they have satlelite tv but only CNN for English speakers. There were no quilts on bed and a lack of pillows but they did supply a very warm blanket. The bed was extremely large and very comfortable. In a nice area by the water. It was one of the nicest areas we saw and near all the shops. I would not recommend for families but for couples it is great.

We stayed here for 2 nights for a work trip. Hotel is well located, a stones throw from the sea front, the Castell d'ovo and near views of vesuvius. Nice resturants nearby. Disappointed by the rooms, which were basic to say the least, no wifi in rooms, poor sound insulation. Breakfast selection extremely dissapointing. Sea view as described - very much a side sea view, (ie, stick head out of window to see) maybe more suited to travellers than business people.

We stayed at the Rex for 5 nights October from 12 to 17 2013. This is a 3 star Hotel with a 5 star service. The Hotel is situated in one of the most sought location in Naples where you can enjoy one of the greatest Panorama in the World and close to all of the sightseeing in Naples . The room was very clean, bright and comfortable, the breakfast is traditional Continental very fresh and plenty full. all the staff in general are helpful and happy to help under the direction of consummate professional Manager Salvatore Mellino. We will definitely not look any farther on our next visit in Naples.

Reviewed 5 October 2013

We stayed there for 3 nights in late August 2013. The hotel is very clean and the staff are extremely helpful & friendly. The staff on the front desk were always happy to help with any questions on places to eat, how to get to attractions or just suggestions on places to see.

Our room was on the first floor but the staff were more than happy to assist in carrying the bags up and down the stairs. The room was for side water views and you had to lean from the window to see them. The room was small but very clean and comfortable, the bathroom was small but had good water pressure in the shower.

Breakfast is fine offering juice, bread, cheese, meats, pastries, cereal and yoghurt. The moring staff are also more than happy to make you an espresso coffee, cappuccino etc.

The hotel provides free wifi with a speed more than adequate for any normal tourist task such as browsing or Skype etc.

The Rex Hotel is in a good location, close to the bay area which is nice to walk around. There are many restaurants close by, ones visited by locals as well as those whose main clientele are tourists. The area can get quite busy at night on the weekend but the seal on the window and shutters make it quiet inside the room.
I would definitely recommend staying at the Rex Hotel.
