We found this a great hotel, comfortable, with helpful staff. While the room/suite was beautiful and comfortable, and our evening dining was excellent (great seafood and beef options, with best view in Napoli) there are a couple of issues: the first is that the breakfast was poor - the attendant service seemed uninterested, some of the options (eg yoghurt) were very cheap, and the egg/sausage/bacon was poor. More importantly, the trade-off for the view is expensive accessibility to the front/beach and city. So if you want to walk down from the hotel to the beach then it is a 20+min descent, along a very busy, scary road. The return walk is serious. Taxis are readily available, varying between 6E and 15E one way to the Megellerina Port area (which is not the most fragrant). To push along the front, or into the city obviously costs more. You should factor this into the costs, something the hotel obviously doesn't advertise. They do direct you to a bus route - walk 5min uphill, then cheap to go down BUT in our experience completely unreliable.
In summary we would probably look for better if we returned (and to be honest, given the mess that is Naples, who would !!!). Note this hotel does not have a pool: the closest safe option is Beach Elena, 12E per day each (plus the cab!). On balance, this hotel has some great features, but it is lacking in other attributes., less
