Locationwise this hotel is right in the middle of the semi-pedestrianised shopping area: semi-pedestrianised because you have to watch out for the police cars and carabinierie patrolling up and down the Via Toledo. The hotel would have been sumptuous when first built and the breakfast room still retains the charm of an earlier age with its rich drapes, ornate mirrors and high ceiling. Coming into the hotel is daunting because you have to go through a tiny door, part of huge, thick, metal gates, then cross a dingy courtyard and up stone steps to the first floor. The breakfast room is on the floor above, entailing another climb up the stone steps. The breakfast was plentiful and varied. We were well looked after by a delightful young woman, Rosaria (Rosie), who was so sweet and proudly told us she had made the cakes herself. They were all fantastic, moist and very light (coffee, apricot, lemon, strawberry, orange, apple, choc chip!): the best cakes in Naples. Rosie was superb suggesting places to go and what to see. As well as Rosie the other staff were also friendly and helpful. My room was basic but spotlessly clean and despite the high ceiling it stayed warm. Be warned if you have a car: the hotel does not have its own car park and we had to pay 25 euros per night to park securely nearby. This makes a stay in this reasonably priced hotel extortionately expensive.
