Staying in this hotel as a break from hostelling meant that it seemed quite plush, however the rooms are average sized with fairly modern in-suite bathrooms, and are certainly a little on the warm side with no air conditioning! Breakfast was quite skimpy in my experience, cereals and bread and jam with coffee...the big let down is the location, as the area around the station in Naples is quite rough...still, it's only about a 1 minute dash to safety from this hotel to the station!
We only stayed at this hotel for one night, as all the hostels were full up. It was in a good location for us, as it was right at the bus stop from the Naples airport, and across the road from the train station, which we went straight to the next day. It was fairly priced, 30 euros each per night in a double room with an en suite (that's the Internet rate only!) But, there's no air-conditioning! The rooms with air-conditioning, I think, are for visitors who pay full price and not the cheap Internet rate. I'm not sure, though. (The full price is about 100 euros for a double room, which I could never afford.) The breakfast was substantial, with pastries, juice, tea, coffee, cereals, jams and proscuitto. As much as you can eat, too! The bathroom was fairly clean, although the shower did have someone else's long hair still in it. Eww.

Great location, by the train station.
Amazing staff. Very helpful when we arrived and when we left.

Liked: Location and rate Didn't like: Nothing
Good location, good breakfast.
Liked: It's near the train station, 3-min walk. It's quite a nice hotel for backpackers. The room I booked looked exactly the same as the pic shown on hotelbookers.com. Both the room and the private both room are quite spacious and clean. Didn't like: nothing actually. But I lived there for tne 2nd night without booking. The room was not as good and 50% higher than the booked room price. So it's better to book far beforehand.
It's rather 1-star hotel.
Great deal for the price! Perfect place for travelers on a budget.
Liked: Location was good, wifi was free, rooms were well lighted Didn't like: Air conditioning in room was average, in breakfast room it was hot. The location is not safe, full of pickpocketers. Wifi was only in reception and first floor. Breakfast was really poor. Seriously if u can afford look for a better place, ok for people tight budget. In the bathrooms water was only tickling. Shower was broken and in the washbasin water was only a tickle
Liked: Good location. Didn't like: Drain in bathroom drained slowly in both the shower and sink. Wi ti o.ly available inreading Rolland lobby--not in rooms.
Very nice hotel, good value for money, even welcome drink:)
Very pleasant stay, air con, close to railway station, can't say anything against ideal.
Great location, the staff will help you in any way they can. Great restaurants next to the hotel, and the train station and the city historic center is really close. Great place to stay
one of the finest hotel,near to Napoli train station and also very chef.
Nice, clean, friendly place. It is like a silent retreat in the busy city. We had a room looking onto the backyard. Excellent transportation. The breakfast was fime, wasn't variable, but good for that price.
The receptionist who was in charge in the mornings during our stay (May 3rd-7th)gave us very helpful tips for sightseeing und travelling!
Their service is really bad!!! They changed our resevation without any notification, and arranged us to a very bad hotel without any star...and didn't make any compensation for this. We aruged with them for more than 1 hour, and they promised to have discout in the bad hotel, but when we pay the price for the 2nd night at Hotel ideal, they increased the price...I've never met this kind of service before, they don't care customers at all! Any potential customers, if u see this message, pls bear in mind, they may change your reservation, I recommend you never consider this hotel...
A bit smelly room,but very nice staff.
Very good position - 150 m far from Main Train Station, helpful staff, clear rooms with private bathroom, TV-set. Breakfast quite godd, but every day the same. Hotel bar inside the house. We can recommend this hotel. No refrigerator, kettle or microwave - must ask in bar.
