We had 2 night at this hotel and found it to be top class. It is a 4 star high rise hotel with many floors, however this is not a problem as there are plenty of fast elevators. Located 5 minutes walk from the harbour where the ferries depart for Capri, and surrounded by shops it is well positioned.
We found our room to be well furnished and very comfortable, although if we were staying for a longer period I would have liked a larger room. The dining room served good meals and there was a piano player and singer entertaining in the lounge bar, where we relaxed for an hour after dinner. A most enjoyable stay
This hotel is very well located in the centre of the city, not far at all from the main tourist attractions.
Rooms are nice even if it's an old strcuture and the service is good.
Unique Quality: Great views.....is one of the tallest buildings of the city centre and you can see it from everywhere.
Directions: near to the town hall square
is the ramada good as a hotel. how does one get to it from the termini??
it says the location is not safe but then nothing in naples seems to be. we are 2 girls
The Naples staion is Napoli Centrale.
The Ramada hotel is right by Napoli Centrale.
had a location map and reviews etc.
The hotel looks fine, and Naples is safe enough (although grubby and chaotic/vibrant) if you use good city common sense, especially in the evenings.
The areas around most European stations are always less salubrious than other parts of the town/city; they draw those who are poorest, those who have problems, those who are looking for quick and easy pickings from disorientated travellers. It would be best not to plan on very late nights and/or wandering back to the hotel in the early hours, imo.....but I wouldn't want to do that in many other European cities.
For what it's worth, the train station area is infinitely better now than it was when I first visited Naples in 1989.
As for Naples being dangerous, for some reason people love to overdramatize that, especially Italians who have never been there. A Sienese shopkeeper once said to me "In Naples they'll steal your HAIR!" Nonsense. If you act sensibly and protect yourself from pickpockets and scammers you'll be fine.
The same over-dramatisation occurs with the rubbish problem.
Go. Be sensible. Enjoy. Just don't expect everywhere to be like home, be open to new ideas/culture/behaviours and you'll have an excellent trip.
do you plan to visit Naples because you want to use
it as a launching pad? If so, I would not recommend
that you stay there. I agree with other VT'ers that
Sorrento is not only a more pleasant place, but it's
just as close to the sights you want to see. while
I've never been IN Naples, I've had to take ferries
out of Molo Bevello, and it reminded me of Times
Squares in the 70's.
Well of course a ferry terminal is going to be a mess.
My concern would be more that if you stay near the station (Termini is in Rome, btw), which is shabby and a bit depressing rather than out-and-out dangerous, you are some way away from anything you might want to see and do in Naples.
I would suggest staying nearer to the Maschio Angioino/Piazza del Municipio (airport bus terminus), e.g. Jolly Hotel Napoli or the Marriott Renaissance Mediterraneo.
Have a sfogliatelle for me at Gambrinus!
thank you for all the help... will be on the watchout :) hopefully all goes fine...decided with the ramada!
