Caravaggio Hotel
Ranked #108 of 185 Hotels in Naples
Reviewed 14 November 2013

The location is fine in via libertarian, very central and in the heart oft he old town action. The front desk was very helpful, however, the room was essentially windowless and dark and on departure we were charged a 15 euro "city tax", in cash. The city tax is actually 2.50 euro per person per night as we found out later. At least there is parking, once you find it and get through the chain link! Supposedly the hotel is in a former 17 th century palace, but you would never know it from what we saw.

I booked this hotel based on the pictures I saw on the website. First of all we passed thru 10ft of garbage spread on the ground in front of the hotel before getting in. Then they took us to a separte buidling from the reception building into our room. The room looked nothing like the photos. Old blanket, run down shower room, for a price of 120Euro in March!
Our total stay there was 3hrs! we could not stand the place. We checked in at 11 and checked out at 3pm. The manager made us pay for 2 nites!

My friend and I stayed here for two nights and really liked the hotel a lot! The staff were very friendly and accommodating! The room was a nice size and was very clean. The room was a bit cold at times, but there were plenty of blankets to use, so that was good. The breakfast was wonderful. One morning we didn't go down until a few minutes before breakfast was to end and were worried we wouldn't get anything. However they were kind enough to let us eat! The only complaint I would make would be the noise level outside our hotel room, but that isn't the hotel's fault at all. I slept with earplugs the second night and had no problems! The location of the hotel was also in a good area with what we wanted to do. It's a five minute walk to the street with all the Nativitys for sale. All in all, great experience.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the street will be noisy all night long, so keep that in mind. Bring earplugs!

Perfectly situated in the dark and ecclectic historic center of Napoli in the shadow of St Gennaros Cathedral this hotel is a great stay for a resonable price. The staff is absolutely attentive and very helpful, I would like to suggest a raise for Antonio our morning concierge. He had a delightful meal laid out for us every morning down in the breakfast room. What a great way to start our day in Napoli. The rooms are tidy and modern with comfortable beds and sleek bathrooms. There is no wifi in the room but it works just fine downstairs in the lobby and internet/office area. Napoli in the summer is swealtering, so keep in mind that you will be hot all the time. The a/c in our room did work, but the unit might not be enough to cool down the entire area. Just like most buildings in Napoli, the Caravaggio building is old, we're talking Roman times maybe Medieval? So if you're into history you'll love this place and by place I mean Napoli itself not only the Caravaggio. There is great shopping very close by in the historic center, the train station is a quick 15 minute walk or 5 minute cab ride. Many locals restaurants in the area it's almost impossible to go wrong with food in Napoli. It's all good! Buffalo mozzarella mmmmmmm...I can't wait to stay there again and spend more time exploring Napoli.

Room Tip: The cab driver won't know where the hotel is. Just tell them to take you to Via Duomo and Via Ca...

Even allowing for differences in standards between the UK and Italy this is not a 4 star hotel. The shower head was broken and had to be held in place by a bottle of shower gel and the water drained away so slowly that you had to turn the shower off mid wash to prevent it overflowing. The fridge was dirty and not very cold, light bulbs did not work, the roof terrace had obviously not been cleaned for some time and was covered in bird droppings. Breakfast was OK but bread and croissants had run out every day by 9.30am and were not topped up unless you asked. We were not told about the safe facilities in our room when we checked in and money was taken when the room was not locked properly by the maid. This is a conveniently located hotel and reception staff were friendly and helpful but don't expect much of the room or facilities.

This is a hotel with nice and clean rooms located in the touristy Historic City of Naples.

The rooms are clean and the staff is nice and friendly. Rooms have very high ceiling (4 meters at least) and bathrooms in good quality. If you get a room that's facing the busy street it's going to be quite noisy during night because of the many vespas and cars that constantly honk and drive fast.

Breakfast is boring. The coffee tastes worse than Nescafé. Just go outside and have a nice macchiato instead from one of the many cafés for less than €1.

I wouldn't recommend spending too much time in this part of the city though, but I can't complain about the hotel except for the breakfast.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that doesn't face the street if you value your sleep.

Dear customer,
we are happy to have met his expectations, Naples is a city sometimes chaotic and, in spite of our attention, not always able to mitigate the noise caused by traffic. We will be happy to host you again to offer, this time, great coffee.

We stayed one night in the centre of Naples, and this is definitely centre. Great location and quite safe feeling inside. But on the down side, the room was quite smelly-we think it was the air conditioning. Also in the morning when we checked out, we were told that we would have to walk off and find our car. It was very difficult to find in such a disjointed, old city. All the tiny alleys run off each other and are not always very well signed. We found the car in the end, but to be told to go and find it ourselves was fairly poor service I thought. Still it was not all bad!

Dear customer, after a long series of positive comments we have carefully read his report, on which we have already spoken. We are very sorry that our location has departed from the expectations, but the historic center of Naples, as also many towns, is made up of narrow streets that intersect, just to avoid the problem we are affiliated with a Parking simple to reach and would recommend it to our customers.
Sincerely yours, in the hope of 'goodbye ..
