The place is a little older and has it's quirks- shower would not drain and filled with water for one. Rooms are all different I think, so maybe if you're nice to the staff at check in you can get one of the bigger/better ones? We got a room that was pretty small even for European standards. Safe neighborhood although not too much going on right near the hotel, there is plenty of things within walking distance. Hotel is in the side of a cliff and even the 2nd story rooms have incredible views of Vesuvius, the city and the water. Not the greatest hotel I've ever stayed at, but probably one of the best in Naples.
