We just stayed at this hotel for two nights and it was brilliant. If you have done your research, you'll know that Naples itself is pretty rough around the edges, which is what makes this hotel so great. The piazza that it is located on is a bit rough, beggars, lots of people selling bits of crap like fake bags and watches. But it is about 2 minutes walk to the main train station , and the buses from the airport drop you almost outside the hotel (3€.) If you are prepared to navigate the noise, the traffic and the salesmen you will have a brilliant stay here. As long as you are aware of your possessions when walking around, you shouldn't encounter any problems, eg pickpockets etc. The hotel itself is beautifully decorated, modern and clean with friendly staff who are always willing to help you with your Italian speaking, very patient with our attempts anyway! The hotel restaurant is lovely, very nice food if a tiiiiiny bit overpriced, but we ate there each night and had no complaints whatsoever. Breakfast is ideal, coffee, teas, juices, cereal, plus the usual continental fare, pastries, fruits, meats, cheeses, bread and toast etc. And it is included in the price of the room. There is a gorgeous roof terrace where you can have breakfast and dinner, which overlooks Naples, which actually looks very nice from above! You can see Vesuvius and the port in the distance, as well as the manic traffic which makes for some hilarity. The mini bar is expensive, but the shop just next to the hotel sells all of the contents, so if you can bear to leave the safe confines of the lobby then this is your best bet. Basically, if you want to see real Italy, at least southern Italy, Naples is a must see, if only to make you appreciate Florence or Rome's atmosphere more! Very conveniently located to visit Pompeii/Vesuvius, and to escape to Sorrento, Rome or Capri after a long flight. Also there is a brilliant pizzeria about 5/10 minutes walk away which does amazing pizzas in traditional surroundings, featured in Eat, Pray, Love (film with Julia Roberts!!).
