Some say the area around the hotel is not safe during the night. Well, we have tried, though, and survived. In my opinion, really all of Napoli does not feel quite safe during the night. Although - on the other hand - it is an exceptional city with many interesting faces, and an amazing city, really. We loved it!
You would never expect such a nice, cute little hotel with crazy Napoli buzzing around you. Very friendly and helpful staff, very clean. The breakfast is Italian, but much better and much more selection than in most of the other italian hotels we have been to so far. We stayed 5 days and enjoyed every day. The tram stops right before the hotel (recommendation: buy the one-day-Napoli-ticket for 3.70 EUR, which can be used on busses and Metro as well). By foot it takes only half an hour into the old town. I have even tried a walk from the Airport one day: 34 minutes exactly (but don´t try with a heavy suitcase, and especially don´t try when it is dark). The Pizzeria right on the other side of the road is less than perfect, but the one 200m to the right (called Cruise) is wonderful! Supermarket only 30m to the left. What can I say? Almost perfect for such a price, really. Congratulations to the Buono Team. Our tipp: Not only visit the Vesuvio, but also visit the Solfatara near Pozzuoli, if you are interested in volcanics at all! It is just amazing. Note: hotel staff tries to speak English, which is not necessarily usual in Napoli, and some perform quite well, actually. But if you are going into town, it is better if you learn at least a few words of Italian before you arrive.
