B&B La Bouganville
Ranked #116 of 766 Naples B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 7 August 2011

Clean, quiet, and secure B&B to stay at in Napoli. The main drawback we found was the travel time to get to and from La Bouganville, and a cab ride would probably not be cheap. The metro & funicolare trips from most central Napoli locations can take up a lot of time (up to 1.5 hours each way). Additionally, as nice as Giuliano was, he could benefit from making himself scarce-he seems to always be around and over your shoulder. However, he was kind and had some excellent restaurant recommendations.

The room and ensuite bathroom were very attractive and comfortable. The place was very clean. Breakfast on the terrace was a wonderful way to start the day! Giuliano was extremely helpful with transportation and other tourism information.

La Bouganville is a fabulous home base for a visit to Naples and environs. I needed easy access to the city center, but wanted the peaceful atmosphere and cool breezes that come from being up on the hill. La Bouganville is spotlessly clean and well maintained. It is clear that the proprietor cares about his property and the comfort of the guests. The bathroom has recently been renovated with lovely yellow tile, there are historic pictures of Naples on the walls, the kitchen and terrace are open to guests –– just like visiting a friend’s home. The host, Giuliano, of course, is the jewel in the crown: charming, helpful and professional. I was in town to prepare for a student tour I will be leading next year and Giuliano endured my endless questions with tireless good humor and practical information. Originally I booked two days, but stayed on for five. I will be returning to La Bouganville.

Giuliano made our stay in Naples! The location seems a bit far from the center but once you go to the center of Naples you realize you don't want to be there. From La Bouganville you get a beautiful view of the Bay of Naples and with Giuliano's help you can take day trips to Pompeii and Capri easily. The only disappointment was that the terrace is closed due to renovations on the building so breakfast was inside.

If you must go to Naples, this is THE BEST place to stay. Its in a safe comfortable neighborhood, with stores, and busses nearby. Theres a great view of the harbor from the neighborhood, and La Bouganville is great. Everything you are looking for in a bed and breakfast...clean nice rooms, nicely landscaped yard, away from the downtown noise and problems, and the best feature is Giuliano himself. He's very helpful with local info, considerate with helping those, unfamiliar with the area navigate, and even took us himself to the train station and other places. He can also recommend great restaurants close to the B&B. The place he suggested was the best Pizza we had in all of Italy, and we were in seven cities there.

The B&B is comfortable, excellent value, and the host very helpful. The view of Naples from just down the street is beautiful. Although it is a short walk (with the views) from the B&B to the funicular, it is a longer (10-15 minutes) walk from the bottom of the funicular to the Metro (line 2); as long as this is not a problem for you, definitely recommended.

We stayed 3-nights in Bouganville, me & my wife(double) with my daughter's family(triple) .
Giuliano picked us at the Naples grand station, because we were little anxious to take a taxi in Naples(sorry).
If you never visit Naples before, we recommend you to ask him the pick-you-up service.
After your arrival, Giuliano show you the map and how to get downtown by the public transportations such as funicolare(?).
The area named Manzoni is located in Posilipo hill-top, where the upper middle class residential in Naples.
You can find the local stores within walking distance, meat, vegetables, sweets even laundry, but be careful they close 2~5 p.m. due to Siesta.
The peoples of those stores might understand a little English, so you have to know at least the word "uovo".
Every morning, Giuliano prepared the continental style breakfast.
Three kinds of pane, fresh juices, English tea and his best Italian coffee were served at the cozy kitchen.
During ten-days trip, we saw many art works in Roma and Firenze.
But, our best memories in Italy are Giuliano and pizza Margherrita in Napoli.
