My husband and I stayed here for one night before flying back to Germany early in the morning the next day. We stayed in the budget part of the hotel, Depandance Economy Rooms, and had a splendid time.
Galleria Umberto is an absolutely stunning building. Just staying there is a treat. The entrance to the main hotel is accessed inside the Galleria. There is only a small plaque to guide you. Just look around, and eventually you will find it. The Depandance rooms are also part of the Galleria, but the entrance is outside. Enter the main part of the hotel and they will send someone to guide you over.
The service was lovely, though most of the worker's English was not up to par. However, with some patience you will be able to get everything figured out. Our economy room was really not what I expected. We had a private (albeit small) bath with a tub and soap and a hair dryer. The room had a gorgeous queen sized bed with incredibly tall ceilings and windows. Absolutely lovely.
The archaeological museum is a simple twenty minute walk up the main shopping street (Via Toledo). The palace is right next door. Many other sights within a few minutes of walking. While it is crazy in Naples, the area is not particularly unsafe. Be aware of your belongings, but the area near the hotel is busy, relatively upscale and friendly (heck there is even a Disney store a block down the street!)
After a long day of travelling from Amalfi to Naples and then walking the busy and chaotic streets of Naples, my husband and I crashed in this wonderful room. The Depandance rooms don't really have room service (or a phone!), but the front desk will order you drinks and pizzas. We got our nice pizzas, and the front desk man served it to us out on the balcony (I believe typically reserved from breakfast) which overlooks the whole gallery. Absolutely beautiful. Then he even offered us glasses of champagne gratis.
It was a charming place to spend our last night and I would recommend the economy rooms to anyone. They were an excellent price and beautifully kept up. I would definitely return again.
