Ok, upsides first....the hotel has a very nice breakfast buffet on the top floor, with a great view over Naples and a choice of food and beverages that should fit everyone (international breakfast standards as well as local specialties). The staff (especially @breakfast) is very nice. There are bikes for rent, we found it to be a very nice way to discover the city, even if 20 Euro/bike seemed a bit pricy.
Now some downsides, which unfortunately will prevent us from coming here again....First thing is cleanliness.... The shower drain was obstructed, water was floating and there were black long hairs all over our room (we're both blond.....). That's one thing, but even more worrying (as even the staff admitted) is the LOCATION. The hotel is situated on a square next to the central station (convenient when you take the airport bus into town). In the evening, the square is filled with bothersome people of various nations, many of them drunk or stoned. Every night, we had to witness serious fights. With windows open, we heard yelling and shouting throughout the night. At one night, a fight broke out just when we were crossing the square (people attacking others with broken bottles), it was really scary.
All in all....go for it if you're not of the fainthearted. Otherwise you might consider a more secure and clean location.... less
