Good Choice for Naples

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on May 10, 2007

We stayed at the Rex for four nights in April 2007. It is a small, modest hotel in a lovely location very close to beautiful Naples bay and in an area with many more expensive hotels.
The hotel personnel were very gracious and let us store our luggage there for 3 days while we went to Sorrento and Capri at no charge.
We were three women traveling together and we had a room with two twin beds and one surprisingly comfortable cot.
We reserved at the Rex after a not so good experience at another Naples hotel.
I would definitely recommend the Rex. The hotel employees are helpful and polite and the location is lovely. It is reminiscent of the old-world pensiones. If you are looking for luxury, this is not it. If you are looking for comfort and safety, the Rex is a very good choice.

Unique Quality: The Rex doesn't have a breakfast room but instead leaves breakfast menus each day in the hotel rooms. You leave the menu for the maid or at the desk and then breakfast is delivered each morning at a time you have requested.
It is a fairly typical Neapolitan breakfast -- your choice of rolls, croissant, tea, coffee and juice.
As American coffee addicts, we were a bit frustrated by getting only one cup of coffee each in the morning, but disregard complaints about a skimpy breakfast here -- that is the basic Neapolitan breakfast. If you go to a cafe, you will see that a roll and capuccino, or a croissant and cafe Americano or espresso, is the typical order.
All in all a great choice for budget-conscious Naples visitors. Unlike the hotel we stayed in previously, the Il Convento, you can walk in the evening along the waterfront or to and from a restaurant without extraordinary safety concerns.

Directions: Santa Lucia District -- In a waterfront block, just off the lungomare with beautiful views of Vesuvius and the Bay of Naples.

Nice Hotel

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on January 24, 2007

We stayed at the Rex in Naples because we were there for a few days, had no real itinerary, and had an early flight back. The Rex was a nice hotel, with a very clean, albeit small, room. The staff was courteous and helpful, and the hotel was within walking distance to the main pier. However, I would not recommend staying in Naples if you are visiting this part of Italy. I recommend staying somewhere outside of Naples, like Sorrento or Capri.
