We chose here to stay before an early morning flight out of Naples based on the previous positive reviews, and were not disappointed by the hotel, and consider it very good value.
Staff were very friendly and helpful, and also arranged for us to get a cab to the airport in the morning at a reduced rate (16 Euros).
The room (a superior one) was really big, and had a sofa (which could fold out to a sofa bed if needed) and armchair which were handy given that we were travelling with a baby and didn't really want to leave the hotel. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom very pleasant and clean. The satellite TV didn't seem to have any channels in English, though this wasn't a major problem, it just would have been nice to have! There was a small balcony, but not much of a view.
We had dinner in the dining room which was fairly quiet (possibly because it was a Saturday night in a business-orientated hotel), but had decent food.
As others have said, the area around the hotel and on the way to the airport was pretty dodgy. When we drove from the highway we saw prostitutes all over the place in the middle of the afternoon, and the neighbourhood was generally a bit run down with litter everywhere, and very bad roads. Immediately outside the hotel wasn't quite as bad, but there didn't seem to be anything worth going out for nearby. I'm not usually phased by a slightly dodgy area (have travelled a lot and also lived in some not great areas of London), but I wasn't up for venturing out here, especially with a baby in tow! I'd definitely suggest taking a cab to the airport rather than walking, even though it wasn't particularly far - especially at night.
The only other down side was that there was a bit of street noise during the night, though asking for a room facing away from the street would probably solve this.
