“Just OK”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 May 2014

We stayed in the Donna Regina for 4 nights while visiting Naples for the first time. We chose it because of the rave reviews. It is in a good location for walking to sights and for catching public transportation. The entry to the building leaves a lot to be desired. There is a small elevator which worked most of the time while we were there. The B&B itself is pretty impressive at first glance because of the artwork in it. Our room was large and comfortable and clean upon arrival. We were disappointed that our bathroom was down the hall but when other occupants described the staircase they had to maneuver to get to their bathroom, the location of ours didn't seem so bad after all. The staff was friendly. But when we asked for a waste basket for our room we were told we would be given one and it never happened. We spoke and understood some Italian which was very helpful at this property. The breakfast was very good but did not vary from day to day. The rooms did not seem to be cleaned thoroughly during our stay. The wifi did not work in the bedroom. We had to go out into the hall or the living room to use it. This was one of 6 different places that we stayed in over the course of 4 weeks of traveling and it is the only place we wouldn't return to. And by the way, be aware that the proprietor will only take cash payment.

If you like art, Donna Regina B&B is the place for you. It is run by a family of artists, and it's like living in a very welcoming art gallery. Everyone is very friendly, the rooms are comfortable, and the included breakfast is to die for.

Donna Regina is a perfect place to start to experience the unique history, culture and of course the food of Naples. The rooms are full of antique furnitures, clean and very comfortable. The traditional Napolitan breakfast served in the hotel, is very rich and delicious. Additionally , eating in that beautiful kitchen, decorated with precious ceramics, increases the taste of the pastry more and more. The staff, especially the owner, Domenico, is quite helpful in explaining and giving insights about the city. Rather than being only in a B&B, i felt like I lived in a huge, old Napolitan flat where i can also spend my time in its museum-like living room. The hotel is located in the heart of the city where is very convenient for being a starting point walking tours. I definitely recommend Donna Regina for an amazing and splendid Naples holidays.

Donna Regina is truly a hidden gem. The rooms as well as the food are fantastic. Service was impeccable and staff was super friendly and always willing to help in any way they could. The location of the B&B is also very close to shops and the art museum.

Donna Regina is truly a great place to stay and we will be back next September!

Thank you Mimo! Your hospitality is unmatched!

Dominic our host made us so welcome, even arranging late night food when places were shut and provides excellent advice on the city. Rooms are spotless, breakfast great, and the hall and 'salon' are quite stunning, with high walls covered in his family's art. Will go back

B’n’B Donna Regina is set in an ancient convent, located on Via Luigi Settembrini, 80, in the heart of the old town centre, close to the Duomo, the Archaeological Museum and some great restaurants and pizza places. I was greeted by Gabriella, who showed me round the art gallery, and allowed me a peep into all the other rooms. Each of the rooms is uniquely equipped with original and antique furnishings, superb original paintings, and have their own individual identity (most by Elio Mazzella, Domenic's father I think!).

The breakfast was traditional Italian fare, with lots of hot strong coffee to revitalise after a night on the lash!

Domenic, the owner, is a proud Neapolitan, advocating the cities quirky madness, and in your face attitude and scruffiness (don’t let that put you off visiting though) and pointed out some great places to eat and drink and visit. Overall it’s a fabulous place, just pray that the lift is working though!

I would strongly recommend this as a base to see Naples, and also to get down to Pompeii and the Amalfi coast.

Room Tip: The room I was in has a very beautiful, but narrow spiral staircase, which is difficult to navigate...

We were visiting Donna Regina on a night, where they actually weren't open. But they accepted our stay anyway. We were greeted by a very nice host at 12 pm with an apology for not having any dinner for us (we weren't expecting dinner). Breakfast was really good and very local. Additionally, the interior was very distinct and incredibly cool. Paintings and art covering the whole apartment. Rooms were nice too but shouldn't be the purpose of your visit to Donna Regina.
