We had booked to stay at the Hotel Bellini and they contacted us at short notice to say that they had a burst pipe so we moved our booking to Hotel Correra 241 which is Rex's sister hotel but there was an issue with another party extending their stay so we were bounced over to this hotel. I put a lot of stock in TA reviews so when I saw this was ranked in the 80s I was not best pleased but on arrival we found nice clean hotel, with friendly helpful staff located in one of the nicer areas of Naples. Walking up to the main areas of Piazza Dante and the historical area will take about 20 minutes and its straight up the main busy roads so no need to feel worried about walking around. Also located near the port so easy access to the tourist attractions in this area as well as the Ferry port for day trips to Sorrento and Capri. The hotel is located near Via Santa Lucia where you can find find a few shops and bars and restaurants.
The room it self is basic but comfortable and breakfast is the usual continental type you will find in Naples, Croissants and jam basically with coffee but this is served via room service in the hotel Rex, you fill out your order the night before and state what time you want it delivered. All in all a pleasant stay in Hotel Rex. We moved up to Piazza Dante area for the second part of our stay and although we enjoyed it there too the area where hotel Rex is situated is probably considered a nicer area.
