My daughter and I stayed at this hotel the other night, and I used the reviews of Tripadvisor to book the hotel. We were not let down. It is however, a little tricky to find, so here goes:
From Piazza Garibaldi Station take Line 2 to Piazza Cavour, walk through the underground maze of tunnels, following the signs for Line 1, looking for the station name Museo. This saves you from trying to cross streets with the hundreds of Vespas zooming by! Take the train that heads to Dante, the end of the line if I'm remembering correctly. When you exit the station at street level, you'll see a statue of Dante in the piazza, and just behind him to the left there is a small galleria, or alley-type street lined with shops. Take that alley for about 150 metres or so, and there is Piazza Bellini. Turn left as you exit that alleyway, and look for Number 101 on your left. It's just past a small Cheesebar cafe, with huge black iron doors. There's a buzzer system with a hotel button, and then below it is a small buzzer just with Hotel on it. Use that one. Once they buzz you in, the hotel doors are on the left, white marble steps and a small lift.
The hotel room is spacious, clean, minimalist modern decor, and comfortable. We had a king size bed, flat screen TV, safe (large enough for my small laptop) and a desk. There is a public computer in the breakfast room, but I couldn't get a wireless signal in my room, and even my portable internet 'rocket stick' wouldn't get a signal.
Breakfast was really nice: great coffee, but also tea packets and hot cocoa packets for non coffee drinkers, cereal, yogurts, croissants, pain au chocolat, fruit, and juices.
The check-in lady was great, very kind and helpful.
We would stay here again if we came to Naples, it's in a great location, and it was 100% quieter than where we are in Rome, nearby renovations notwithstanding!
