naples and this hotel turned out to be a great place for a short holiday.
I had heard that it wasn't the ideal tourist spot,was very unwelcoming,too busy, dirty and even dangerous. Apart from the fact that there is a lot of litter around i found most of the preconceptions to prove very unrealistic. It is rich in culture and history (pompeii and vesuvius well worth the trip) and the people are warm and welcoming and mostly speak english. It is busy,but you get used to it and it is important to keep a close eye on your stuff in areas like the stations, but is not a great deal different to any other southern european cities in those respects.
As for the hotel,it was modern,clean,cheap and the staff were very helpful.breakfast was good and the room facilities excellent.True, it is a bit out of the way,but you can get a more localised metro pretty close(on the circumflegrea to edenlandia) and the streets are well lit. definately buy an artecard pass as soon as you can as it is cheap and will cover all the museams,your travel(metro and bus)and one return trip on the ferry to sorrento.
Above all not a relaxing holiday but an adventure well worth it.
