We enjoyed our 2 nights stay in June 2013 at B&B Franca. Both Enrico and his wife Franca are very warm, friendly and hospitable. They made us feel at home from the moment we entered. Enrico made special expresso coffee for us, suggested places to visit and even recommended a wonderful restaurant situated in an area where he was born. Franca offered us fruits and water to carry along for our train journey to Rome and even called taxi for us :)
The room we stayed in was originally their daughter's room. It was clean and cosy. It was bit tiny for 2 people along with their luggage but on the other hand their bathroom was very spacious. Their wifi was working at all times. Their apartment has a wonderful view of the sea.
Their B&B is a bit of a distance away from the main city but is well connected by public transport to reach the city center. It is amongst many other tall towered residential buildings. The area they stay in is very clean and quiet, unlike the city center and there is a small public garden close by.
Just one tip - the entrance to their building is up a small steep slope, so to avoid carrying your heavy luggage, do make sure that the taxi drops you all the way to the top.
We highly recommend B&B Franca without any reservations and would surely stay there the next time we visit Napoli.
