"Great quality hotel - close to main rail station."
My wife and I had been up at 5AM to catch the train from Rome to Naples so that we could go to spend the day visiting Pompeii. After a full day of walking around Pompeii, we returned to Naples main train station and walked to the hotel (5 minutes walk). Feeling hot and very tired we were dubious about the town centre and the streets surrounding the hotel, but when we arrived at the hotel we were delighted to find a spacious, cool and airy reception area with a smiling receptionist to greet us.
We checked in and went to a very well appointed room with air conditioning and a large screen tv. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom was spacious and had all the comforts and conveniences you could hope for in your own bathroom at home.
This is a very interesting place to stay, quite safe in amongst the University students, even if like the rest of Naples with its burden of litter. Well placed for the Metro, hydrofoils to Capri and Ischia and close enough (one Metro stop) to the station for Pompei, Herculaneum, Sorrento and the main station to get to the royal palace of Caserta. Huge numbers of excellent inexpensive restaurants in the area catering across the spectrum for the local population; making it difficult to eat badly. Advice from the reception staff was first-rate. A taxi to the airport direct costs only 16 Euros. Approaches to the hotel are a little daunting, until one realises what a magnificent job the hotel has done in very very awkward conditions; you cannot change the mindset of whole city, the raw excitement and frustration are still there to marvel the tourist. We have stayed twice in the sister hotel Chaia de Charme in the Chaia with similar stimulating experiences. Well done to the owner and the management for their vision. Warm even in the last week in November.
It was very close to the main train station. The place is not 'fancy' but it was quiet. In ten words or less the front desk could tell us how to use the bus and Metro (and a curios funicular to get us up a severe hill to a castle). Staying there enabled us to see a lot more than just Pompeii.
