My husband and I spent three nights here in May as part of a larger vacation around Italy. Although I do think it is one of the better options in Naples (we did a great deal of research before deciding on Belle Arti), it is certainly not for everyone.
Pros: The rooms were clean and spacious, and we loved the comfortable lounge -- we spent late evenings there just relaxing and catching up on e-mail. It is also in a great location and one we considered to be very safe, as it is gated and secure. It is close to the museum and the train station, and it is a very short walk to main tourist thoroughfares and not much farther to port. Breakfast was convenient and plentiful.
Cons: It is a bit difficult to find since there is virtually no signage on the street. Once we found it, we had some issues getting into the hotel to check in, as we arrived in the afternoon. We now understand that staff is typically there in the morning only, but I wish we were better informed about this before the stay. Lastly, and this was the big one for me -- breakfast is served according to each guest's requested time in the morning, and the staff arrives very early in the morning to prepare for service. While I understand and appreciate this, our room was unfortunately situated very near the preparation room. It was therefore EXTREMELY NOISY starting at around 6am each day as the staff prepared breakfast and knocked on guest doors. This was very off-putting considering it happened every single morning.
All in all, I cautiously recommend Belle Arti. You could do much much worse in Naples, but it is certainly not for everyone.
