“Comfort, hospitality and art in an amazing city”
Reviewed 14 December 2011

Our three-night stay in Donna Regina B&B was the ideal introduction to a fascinating city. Domenic and his staff were friendly and hospitable, and the accommodation was charming and atmospheric. If you like art, you'll be right at home here. You can avail of the option of a home-cooked dinner here; although it will cost a bit more than pizza it's an excellent chance to sample some delicious local produce. Pretty much everything in the centro storico is within walking distance, including the amazing Museo Archeologico Nazionale. I would definitely stay in Donna Regina again and recommend it highly.

Stayed September 2011, travelled as a couple

Historic architecture, modern art and upgrades, and a central location make this place a perfect stop. Excellent service and restaurant recommendations from the family-owned B&B, the homecooked Neopolitan meal, if available, is not to be missed!

Of all the lodgings I have experienced around the world to date, Donna Regina is by far the most spell binding treasure I’ve ever had the unexpected pleasure to come across!

Words cannot describe the warm, ‘over the top’ feeling stepping through these doors back into time and history.

Housed in the former 14th century nunnery of Donna Regina Vecchia, Donna Regina has been in this family of artists for the last seven hundred years.

Domenic a gracious and well informed host, having just met, offers a glass of wine and a wealth of information. What must be seen, what you might not find in a guide book and especially where to have exceptional Neapolitan dishes; best pizza, pasta and accompanying wine to drink.

Each of the five en-suite guest rooms are unique in character, comes with air conditioning, spacious and furnished with original and antique furniture. Breakfast in this time-honoured kitchen is to be thoroughly enjoyed with homemade jam, Italian cake and coffee, plus a generous measure of hospitality.

Ringrazia milione Domenic per tutti gli vostri sforzi, esso era un soggiorno eccellente.

It is like living in an art gallery offering you the perfect balance of homey and privacy. The rooms are comfortable and clean. You are offered coffee and a snack pretty mush any time. The breakfast and the atmosphere in the morning - fantastic! The hosts were wonderful - they offered recommendations throughout the city, which were very helpful; booked accommodation in Rome, which was just as good.
It does not have a good street appeal, but please don't me discouraged - it is an absolute gem! It is also very well located, within walking distance you can get to the old part and the harbor.
From my two weeks in Italy, Donna Regina will stay as one of my most special places.

I have stayed in many luxurious hotels and many characteristic guest houses. Few have come as close to the charm and style of Donna Regina. For me, I wasn't handling the bookings, so it was a complete surprise! We arrived late after a gruelling drive into rush hour traffic of Naples and from the street level I was feeling that this hotel was not going to lift my spirits...until I walked into Donna Regina on the 4th floor. It was like stepping into a classy museum of art and books! Everyone else in this forum has described the rooms well enough so I will refrain from repeating myself, but will say this: the hotel may not seem half as charming if it not were for the owner Domenico. He is well traveled, well read and engages in conversation on a wide range of topics. We are off-the-beaten-track tourists so we found his recommendations on restaurants and other places worth visiting.

B&B Donna Regina encouraged my love for Naples 5 years ago. Every year I visit the city and I stay at Donna Regina, where owner, artist and cook Domenico makes me the most delicious biological meals. This place hidden behind big doors, is a secret beautiful oasis in the heart of the busy city. I always feels a bit like coming home!

This is a very beautiful bed and breakfast, very close to Naples' historic centre, but on a quiet side street - once you have negotiated the foyer and characterful lift, you find yourself in a wonderful, quiet building, with large rooms, and artworks everywhere. The rooms are large and I would only not stay here if you find the idea of mounting a cramped spiral staircase to get to your bathroom alarming. Breakfast is delightful in a sunny kitchen overlooking a cloister with church domes in the rear - the building was once a monastery. Dominic, the manager, is extremely helpful. I recommend this bed and breakfast very highly indeed.
