“Central hotel, great service.”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

Our stay at the Caravaggio Hotel was part of a package holiday through British Airways - GBP 670.00 for 6 nights including flight. The room (210) we were given had a view over Piazza Cardinale Sisto Riario Sforza with its obelisk dedicated to San Gennaro (built in 1636 in thanks to the saint for saving Naples from Vesuvius' eruption of 1631). From the room's balcony, we could see the closed side entrance to the Duomo to one side of the square and the Pio Monte della Misericordia where one of Naples' three Caravaggios (The Seven Works of Mercy) is situated, and its museum. It is a pity that the square is not kept as well as it should, considering its importance, but then that is one thing you have to look beyond if you want to enjoy Naples.

The hotel is certainly central, which meant we could walk to most of Naples' places of interest. It sits on Via Tribunali which is full of life, and close to the Spaccanapoli. The room we stayed in has a lovely high ceiling and its own sitting area. The bathroom with shower was a good size if slightly in need of renovation (I overheard renovation is in the offing for all rooms) but perfectly clean.

The young staff were extremely attentive and friendly and are a great asset to the hotel. There is free WiFi in reception.

I would certainly stay again and recommend others to stay here.

Room Tip: Room 210 looks unto the square and has its own small terrace.

Chose the hotel for its location as previously we had stayed a bit further out. Knew Naples but even by their standards the huge, overflowing rubbish bins outside were a bit much. Reception seemed fine but the room wasn't great. It overlooked a yard and what was almost a tenement block. There were empty bottles and dirty rags left on a ledge right outside the window. Size of room was ok but there were no mattress protectors on the beds and the sheets were threadbare with holes in them and were not changed for the entire 7 day stay. The shower was meant to be a jacuzzi but it was broken and dirty. Air conditioning was turned on and off by reception at whim and Naples is still very warm at the end of Sept. so was needed. There was no bar to speak of and only a couple of sofas in a very dimly lit room, not very welcoming. The advertised roof garden was closed and judging by the state of the padlock had been for a while. Breakfast was poor, orange squash and hard bread, better to eat out. It is probably ok for one or two nights but as a base for exploring the area it was awful, the only hotel I have never wanted to go back to in the evenings.

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.
