Great location, great service, clean, comfortable, quiet, super charming. Belle Arti Resort is right in the middle of the historical center of town. It is walking distance to more fascinating sights, great restaurants, museums, etc. than you can possibly see in one visit, plus public transportation links to the whole countryside just a block away. Room service breakfast is simple and yet perfect start to the day. Room ceilings are high, architectural details Classical-Baroque. The general impression of the hotel is that it's comfortable and charming. Good, free wireless internet connection. Definitely recommend.

Room Tip: Ask for a sunny room. Though even the rooms with little light are comfortable and charming.

We stayed for two nights at the Belle Arti Resort in September. We arrived around 8pm and called Marco as instructed as there's not a 24hr reception. Lino met us at the hotel and was super friendly. Despite not speaking a huge amount of English, he helped us with our bags, gave us a map of Naples and advised us of where to find restaurants and sights.

You enter through a big wooden door into a lovely palazzo and there are a further two doors to get through to get in to the hotel, each with it's own key, so the hotel itself is very secure.

This is a great location for exploring Naples. The Archaeological Museum is only about a minute from the hotel and we were also able to walk to all the other major sights in the city. It should be noted that it's on a main road and therefore with the windows open it was quite noisy, but we didn't find this a problem at all since we were out the majority of the time and when the windows were shut there was no noise at all.

The beds were comfortable and we didn't have any issues with the bathroom (as some reviewers have described). There was a well-stocked (and very reasonably priced!) minibar, as well as extra pillows. The room itself was big with a beautiful high ceiling. Really lovely.

If you're looking for an affordable and comfortable base for exploring Naples, you won't find much better than Belle Arti.

Room Tip: We opted for a 'superior' room so we had a high ceiling with a lovely fresco, but as it was we weren't really in our room enough to warrant the extra money.

Although it was our first time in Naples, we did a fair bit of research until we settled for the Belle Arti Resort. We took into account the location, the duration of our stay in Naples (4 days), proximity to attractions, etc. We are always trying to immerse ourselves into the local style, culture, vibe.

As I stated in the title of my review, the location cannot be better. The B&B is located in the historical district, close to one of the main commercial streets in Naples - Via Toledo. Two minutes away is the "Museo Nazionale", a must see for anyone spending more than a couple of days in Napoli. Metro (underground) stations are close by and so are a couple of other means of city transportation, among which the funicular "funicolare" takes you up the mountain, to "Sant'Elmo" a castle where you can admire Napoli from above. The panorama on a clear day is to die for. Still in the vicinity, The Dome of Naples "Il Duomo" and Via Gregorio Armeno are two destinations that anyone should check of their list. While the Dome doesn't need any further introduction, the narrow street, Via G. Armeno, is the place where you can buy - directly from their makers, from hand carved tiny Christmas figurines to complex and animated Nativity scenes as high as a grown up person. Here you have the chance to see and talk to the artists "artigiani" who have passed this craft through generations. I'll stop here with Naples' attractions as the theme of my review is the Belle Arti Resort. I'll just add that the historic district is the university district so get ready to mingle with the students and share the patios sidewalks and the boutiques with them.

As stated on the B&B's web site, the reception is not "manned", which means that you have to announce your arrival time, ahead of time, in order for someone to be there for your check-in. Although this sounds like an inconvenience, it isn't and in case you arrive early, just call them and in a few minutes someone will come to greet you.

Once you have checked in and you've received a set of four keys!!!, you'll understand why this place is "special". From the moment you set your foot inside, you will notice the specific decorative style that combines modern art with the traditional Napolitan "corno". Everything exudes good taste.

I mentioned a set of four keys and I owe an explanation: one key is your room's key, the other three will unlock the reception door, the front door of the building and the gate of the interior yard (which close at 6 PM). It may seem bizarre, but it makes sense.

The rooms are spacious and the ceilings are tall and of course painted. This is probably the main attraction of this property. Although not every ceiling is in pristine condition, one can appreciate the age of the construction. Some rooms have windows to the main street and that can cause a noise problem, so please ask when you check-in. The furniture in the rooms matches the ceilings, there's satellite TV and free WiFi. In the reception area there is even a computer that can be used to send and receive emails in case you didn't bring your own. The bathrooms are OK, but I have to point our two things: in our room, there was a switch on the wall beside the outlet which turned off the water heater and we went without hot water one night until we asked someone. The second thing was, again only in our room, the bathroom looked a bit worn-out (the wallpaper on the door was a bit peeled off and there were holes in the floor...). You could also see the water heater on top of the bathroom - which could be a turn-of for some people. I have to add that the beds are not too soft, but we like them hard and we always slept well.

Every night we have ordered the breakfast, which was good and fresh, but nothing to write home about. If all you need is ham and cheese, eggs (boiled, scrambled or fried), butter, jam, various coffees and fresh buns, then you can't beat the price - EUR 5/pers.

So, in conclusion, is this the perfect B&B in Naples? No, but I would definitely go back and recommend it, for the atmosphere, the friendliness of the people we interacted with and for that "je ne sais quoi" that made us enjoy the four nights we spend here.

Room Tip: Rooms with the balcony on Via Constantinopoli are noisy.

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.

Perfect situation, providing an oasis of quiet to return to when exploring this noisy, lively city. Clever concept, giving a chance to stay within a typical old palazzo, with original features such as high painted ceilings but with stylish interior design. Had everything we needed and the breakfasts delivered to the door were a fun change from usual. Given keys and no staff except mornings so bear that in mind if you might want help other times.As returned for down time in day and no catering facilities would appreciate kettle, coffee and tea making facilities but that is a Brit thing and maybe wouldn't fit cool decor!
Only complaint is that despite confirming in the morning our time of arrival we were left to wait on the doorstep for 40 minutes for someone to arrive and let us in and that only after chasing up with phone calls and texts. If you operate this system, the receptionist should be waiting for the guests and not the other way around.
