We stayed here last night and didn’t sleep at all due to excessive traffic noise the bin men emptying large bins from 1am onwards and ladies if the night touting for business very loudly on the corner of the street
We had room 3 at the side of the hotel
Firstly the room only had a sink no on suite , toilet halfway down the hallway
The place was clean and dated with a very small reception and English speaking clerk at reception
Ideally placed not far from railway and metro station
The streets around the hotel seemed to be full of immigrants some selling some just hanging around unfortunately this was intimidating to us although we probably got what we paid for ( €34 ) but we will not be going back I have never seen a city so full of rubbish in my life , bins over flowing it would be a lovely city if people took pride in it
Also be careful of the scooter / motorbikes as the don’t stop even at zebra crossing and whip up behind you in narrow streets
I really enjoyed my stay at the Vittorio Veneto, I stayed four nights it's well worth the money, the room was spacious with it's own bathroom the shower was nice and hot, clean towels were left for me each day, the air conditioning was quite and cool and operated by a remote control, there was also a TV, the room also had a balcony overlooking the courtyard, it is nicely situated near the station where it's possible to catch a train to nearby attractions, but Napoli itself is a great city to explore. The area around the hotel is OK and there's plenty of street food to be had, there are plenty of bargain shops and market stalls. For those who say that the area is scary, I can imagine what sort of people they are, those that expect luxury for a modest price or the kind of people that expect everyone to speak English but if you are that particular do some research first or get a package deal to Benidorm where there are many fish and chip shops and fat men walking around wearing football shirts or spend more and stay in one of the Grand Hotels in Santa Lucia or Sorrento. The staff were friendly and helpful and were able to speak English although not needed for me as I speak Italian. I never tried the wifi, I use my mobile phone data. I would definitely stay at this hotel again but I'd try and get room overlooking the street.
The staff in the reception treat you with no respect whatsoever, I was changed of room twice, from double beds to single beds, all because they gave them to new people. The hotel is shared with family houses in the same building so the first thing they tell you is not to trespass certain alleys. One step more and suddenly you are in someone else's house. It feels uncomfortable to get in and out of the hotel everytime, they don't make you feel like a customer but something more like someone whom their giving "a favor". I actually left the hotel with one week remaining, I couldn't stand it anymore.
We stayed here only because we had a problem with a booking at a nearby hotel and needed a place to stay right away. This is a bare bones, no frills place. Spartan decoration, limited wifi, no facilities to speak of. Fan only, no a/c. But the room was quiet and clean; thick wood shutters to keep the noise and light out.We slept well. The manager downstairs was pleasant, helpful and spoke very good English. For the money, we have no complaints.
The hotel is a five-minute walk from the station, but you have to navigate the filth of humanity in the journey, both in physical form and lying in many other forms on the street. The bed was comfortable, and with the windows and blinds closed, it was very quiet. The fan in the room kept the temperature very pleasant, and I slept well. The cleanliness of the room is questionable, and there was a footprint on the bed sheet. There is a sink in the room, which is great as it means avoiding the combined shower/toilet.
The staff were friendly, which was nice, and although hesitant about the area, they were trustworthy and also pleasant to talk to.
Wifi doesn't work in the extremes of the hotel, which is annoying as Internet entertainment is perhaps the only option for a night in Naples.
If you're on a very strict budget, you could do a lot worse. If you're only in town for one or two nights or have firm plans each day, you can survive it. However, if you're looking for something presentable and to compliment your Italian experience, I'd recommend that you just avoid Naples all together.
