"Classy hotel, super spot, wonderful service"
We were really well looked after by friendly, well trained, skillful staff. This service with a smile stands out in Napoli, where it is not ubiquitous by any means. The sea-view deluxe rooms are lovely - and it is simply wonderful to stand on the balcony and take in the panormaic view of the bay, unless you're scared of heights, that is. The marble clad interior of the hotel is genuinely classy and glamorous, inkeeping with the location and the age and architecture of the hotel. Hints of a stronger art-nouveau-come-art-deco style are still there, whilst the hotel is not too big and has a much sweeter and more elegant charm than its larger neighbours on Via Partenope. The food (and service) in the ristobar (the only place to eat in the hotel after breakfast) is sound, quality and reasonably priced - maybe the drinks could be a little cheaper, but they are very good - the cocktails and the hot chocolate are especially worth a try. As is often the case in Napoli, there were a few little things in need of maintenance or repair, but the hotel is clean and well furnished, tasteful and in very good condition, especially considering its age. Again, the staff were diligent, attentive, hospitable and loved to help, advise and solve any problems that arose. The breakfast buffet, served from 7 till 10.30 is tasty and features typical local delicacies, such as sfogliatella, cakes, mozarella, Italian hams and fresh fruit. The choice is not enormous, but it is great for a few days' stay.
