Hotel Il Convento is located in Quartierni Spagnoli which is a regular neighbourhood in Naples. The suburb is comprised of a grid of narrow streets, filled with families and bustling with activity.
We drove to the hotel which isn't particularly recommended; there is no parking at the hotel itself (park at the Supergarage on Via Shelley for 18EUR a day), the streets in the quarter are narrow, zipping motorcycles, delivery vans, cars parked haphazardly, one way streets, streets restricted to residents only...but if you must drive, it's an experience and we ended up without a scratch on our hire car!
The Quartierni is gritty and full of atmosphere, laundry hung out of windows, stalls spilling out into the street with fresh produce and people going about their daily lives. The smells wafting from home kitchens of an evening were amazing.
The front desk staff were very friendly and helpful and there was complimentary pastries upon arrival. The room was cosy and clean, opening out to a small balcony overlooking Via Speranzella. We were on the second floor (there is a small lift to assist with luggage) and didn't find noise to be a problem.
A continental buffet breakfast was served each morning and guests can choose to sit in one of two charmingly decorated rooms, with communal tables. Two staff members ensured that food was replenished as needed.
We really enjoyed our stay and loved the locating of this hotel. Definitely recommended!
