Set in a late 19th-century stately building across the road from Napoli Centrale (Naples Central Railway Station), this grand hotel with views of Mount Vesuvius is in an excellent central location for exploring the city. As well as being within easy walking distance of the centre (20 minutes on foot), it's convenient for trains down the coast for day trips to Pompeii, Vesuvius, Herculaneum and Sorrento on the Circumvesuviano line.
Although the hotel's central location may be a little noisy for some, it is compensated for by its elegance, generous breakfast and ease of sightseeing around the city, as it is near bus and metro links (via Garibaldi Linea 1) for Naples's centre. Many sites of interest are also within easy walking distance from the hotel, such as the MuseoArcheologico Nazionale di Napoli (20 minutes' walk from the hotel) and the famous Teatro San Carlo opera house (29 minutes by foot, or eight minutes via line 1). There's also easy access to the ferry (20 minutes' walk from the hotel) and hydrofoil service for day trips to the beautiful islands of Capri and Ischia (ferries to Capri depart every four hours, take an hour and 20 minutes and cost 11€-14€; they depart for Ischia every three hours, take the same time and cost 12€-18€).
The spacious, pet- and family-friendly contemporary rooms and suites feature marble bathrooms, a pillow menu, a satellite TV, a safe and a mini bar; upgraded suites feature balconies. A complimentary hot buffet breakfast and free Wi-Fi are included in the room price, and room service is available.
The hotel has an upscale restaurant on the top floor, which serves Neapolitan and Mediterranean specialties (with gluten-free options available), which can be enjoyed on the terrace if desired, as well as a sleek bar with a rooftop terrace offering panoramic views over the city and Mount Vesuvius. There's also a business centre with internet access, meeting rooms, a concierge, a small fitness room, and laundry, ironing, babysitting and shuttle bus services on request.
