Four stars for the Hotel Royal Continental, a hotel on the seafront promenade of Naples with a fascinating past, rebuilt in 1955 by Ferdinando Chiaromonte where once stood the Grand Hotel Royal des Etrangers . Today it is known as a structure of great prestige framed by the extraordinary beauty of the Bay of Naples. Large common areas , multiple meeting spaces , picturesque corners of relaxation, the Royal Continental sparkles elegantly with vintage charm thanks to the interiors designed by Gio Ponti , one of the greatest architects of the twentieth century. The furniture too was designed by him combined with designs by young architects of his choice . All 397 rooms, of which most have large windows and a balcony facing the breathtaking view of the Gulf, are spacious and very bright. On the Floor Museum Gio Ponti you can stay in one of the 24 rooms with wooden furnishings and fixtures designed specifically for the Hotel by Ponti. Suspended furniture, three-drawer chests with feet, and magazine racks and lamps in satin brass integrated into headboards from briar have made the history of Italian design. In stunning New York style, the Roof on the tenth floor, from which the beautiful view of the ancient Borgo Marinari and the legendary Castel dell'Ovo can be enjoyed, presents the one of a kind sea-water pool designed by Gio Ponti, published in 1954 on the cover of Domus. Guests are offered the solarium, outdoor bar, Fitness Center, massages booked in advance and two exclusive restaurants with spectacular panoramic views that stretch from the Vesuvius to the hill of Posillipo and the island of Capri. Breakfast served by the sea, in addition to the buffet which offers freshly baked pastries by Hotel Royal Continental, including oven fresh Neapolitan sfogliatelle, pastry horns. Location of reference for events and meetings, the Royal Continental is a well known Conference Center of primary importance in the national scene. Equipped with the most modern equipment and complimentary Wi-Fi, the Conference Center is characterized by its many meeting rooms with natural light and sea views. An exceptional location for large or small events thanks to its Auditorium setaing 530, its 16 Meeting rooms, 13 business suites and exhibition space, more than 200 sqm large. Pets up to 10 kg are allowed with an extra cost of 20 euros per stay. Located in one of the liveliest and most dynamic areas of Naples, the Royal Continental is the ideal location for living and exploring the city, within walking distance from shopping streets and the main local attractions, 10 minutes walk from Piazza Plebiscito and the Royal Palace. Furthermore, it is a 7 minutes drive to the harbour for ferry connections, 10 minutes to the Central Station and 20 to the International Airport. Not just a hotel but the real meeting point in the city, with its numerous events, food and wine tasting events, exhibitions, parties and aperitifs.

Some great plusses and some great minuses. The poor stuff; there was a business conference the weekend we visited and so our bubble burst upon entry. The foyer was packed with nutritionists at a convention. Not the hotels fault but just be aware that if you are expecting something cosy with a holiday vibe you might be disappointed. The shower is an over-bath shower, that’s fine if not ideal but it’s really narrow, even my wife said so and she is a slender little minx. The breakfast. The sign said “poached eggs”, my wife asked and the man at the egg station said no. She walked away with scrambled egg. It was cold. Lastly, the doubled bed. It was two singles pushed together. I get why but it’s not ideal if you use the bed for more than sleeping. In good news, the location for Napoli city centre is excellent, you are in the middle of things in ten minutes. It looks out on the the bay of Naples and a castle, you can see Vesuvius. Has a little balcony with a table and two chairs; delightful. Two pillows each! Light the beacons of Gondor! Such a pleasant surprise! Staff were very laid back, in a good way.

Very nice hotel located along the water. Balconies face the waterfront with a couple chairs and a table on each balcony. Large, well-appointed rooms. Huge breakfast buffet with waitstaff available to get specialty coffee drinks made to order. Large hotel that often has conferences, so reception area can be very busy. Reception staff not very friendly, but breakfast staff were very helpful. Easy walk to restaurants.

The promenade in Naples is beautiful! Restaurants are over the top delicious, and the Royal Continental was a great place to stay to enjoy Naples. The hotel was super clean and the room was nicely appointed. We were given a corner room so we had two balconies with fabulous views of the bay and castle. Breakfast at the Royal Continental was delicious! There were many choices available. Definitely recommend!

I enjoyed my stay at the Royal Continental. I had a room that was directly in front of a castle. At night, a different color light illuminated in front of it. I had a wonderful view of the sea and Mt Vesisus. I would definitely stay here again for the right price. The hotel is not a 4 star by American standards. The only improvement needed is the hotel room is a little dated..i.e. small bathtub/shower, older finishing. But, the view of the castle and sea made up for the older conditions of the room.

My wife and I made the mistake of believing the misleading pictures and description of this hotel. The pool picture is a complete photo shop by the way. There’s no view like that. It’s in the middle of the hotel and gross. I’m actually embarrassed that I’m even being charged for this stay. We stayed for two nights and were the most uncomfortable we have ever been. In fact, we were so uncomfortable with your hotel, that we packed up our bags and moved next door to the Grand Hotel Santa Lucia. I informed hotel management, however they did not seem to care either. So we left. This was UNACCEPTABLE. I WILL BE PLACING THIS REVIEW ON TRIP ADVISOR AS WELL. Our stay was booked from - Our Air Conditioning was broken - Our TV did not work - The Bath Tub “jacuzzi” was broken - We did not receive any cleaning service - The room was filthy and had flies in it. - ONTOP of The hotel being under construction - I believe I also overheard a customer stating her room was robbed as we left too. GROSS. ABSOLUTELY DISGUSTING. I am still waiting to hear from hotel management/ownership in regards to even being charged for this awful experience. I would also like to know the reason for why this hotel was in the condition it is in and charging the expensive rates they charge to visitors. BE VERY EMBARRASSED!! TAKE MY ADVICE. STAY AWAY!!!

I rate this hotel like hostel it is not 4 star hotel. The pictures on websites is not real. The hotel is very old and rooms very dirty. Staffs do not want help to solve problem. I asked them to upgrade my room or at least change this room they rejected and said we are fully booked. Breakfast same every day. The bathroom : flush doesn’t work, mirror is partly broken. Parking very expensive as well 25£ per night.

We know that receptionists play a very important role in welcoming guests.I guess we were just unlucky at that moment that we were attended by a NOT welcoming attitude of a receptionist.We arrived early and I had my smile,as always,and informed the receptionist that we have reserved a room for 4 days. The receptionist did not ask about our information but IMMEDIATELY said that "check in is 3pm and you can leave your bags in the storage room in the left corner". I was shock how he said it and he did not mind even telling us if we want that we can wait in the lobby, or have a coffee in the corner, or could have even offer us something for guests that travel so far, or would inform us, if there is something entertaining within the area while waiting.I would appreciate it if he said it in a nice way, but no. I just felt that he will properly entertain me I guess when it is 3pm already. Some receptionists were nice, espexially the lady receptionists. But what impressed me is the Renhold. Very clean and the cleaning woman really maintained our room very perfect! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5 Stars for Renhold department.Very well done!..and the breakfast waiters and waitresses were so nice and very attentive to guests, Excellent! During breakfast there's not much to choose, all the same food for 3 days, but breakfast arrangement was perfect! If you intend to buy wine outside the hotel its not allowed, the receptionist told us when we asked about wine opener.He said he should have not allowed us to bring a bottle of wine to bring it to the room.He allowed us only that night, but he will not allow us next time.It seems we were like a child being scolded. In swimming pool you have to reserve and you only have one hour to enjoy the pool. But anyways we enjoy Naples for those 4 days :) 9th floor

Loved this hotel. The services offered were wonderful. The pool needs to be booked in advance and paid extra for which is a bit annoying but it is small and gets busy so maybe that’s understandable. There is an amazing terrace where you can have a drink over the harbour which was lovely
