Slap bang in the centre of Naples's old city, the b&b is located right opposite the Metro – but it's not a particularly useful station unless you're heading up to the Archeological museum (next stop) as the connection to the central station on Piazza Garibaldi is still under construction! Perhaps a better reason to stay is the fact that it's right beside Mexico, my most favourite coffee shop in all Naples. Take a little lift (have your 20 cent coin ready to operate it) up to the third floor where you'll have views over Piazza Dante.
Spacious, sound-proofed, stylishly furnished, light-filled rooms (four doubles and a suite, with two beds and two bathrooms) with big beds and flatscreen televisions, and balconies that overlook the inner courtyard that the b&b is set off. Black marble bathrooms are luxurious and certainly a lot classier than you might expect in a b&b.
Friendly staff are available to help with recommendations of restaurants and how to get around the city.
Who stays there
Anyone looking for reasonably-priced accommodation and wanting to be right in the thick of Neapolitan life.
Prices drop in low season (January 7 to 31, February, August, November, December 8 to 20), when the suite (that sleeps up to 6 people) becomes a total bargain.
