... in the hostel for a week as a "holiday". She feels like Naples is "her" city, and so knows it well and is able to reccomend where to go and what to see as a local but from a tourist point of view.
Today was my last full day, not just in Naples, but in Italy as a whole, so I decided to make the most of the food while I could (planning to return to the uk at least 10kg heavier!). I had a long walk uphill and got some good views over the city. I stopped by a pastry ...
... and as the second flare, blue this time, goes off, they take a few steps forward, while we leave the square behind and leave them to their demonstration, hoping the parade won’t follow us through the streets. After about twenty metres along the road, past a few onlookers, the day is as normal. There is no attention paid to the square at all and we are once again in an old city full of living history and people telling us they have the best prices, come and see!
... took in everything we could. We had been there for hours! Unrestricted hours.. it felt nice to not have to rush off anywhere. We could explore the ruins at our own pace - we liked that.
But we felt like we had accomplished a lot and seen all there was to see from the map's point of view. So we thought we could head to Herculaneum now.
All we had to do was head back to the station - jump on the metro and get off at Ercolano. And that we did. We got off ...
... one to Grotta Azzura (blue caves) or a trip around the island for sight seeing from the water. There are also a lot of speciality shops around, with various upmarket labels. H found the most gorgeous profumery that makes their own perfumes and lemoncello is very big here also, bugger that we both love that stuff. Absolutely great meandering along narrow walkways/ steps with not a clue what's around the corner. Heaps of various nationality tour groups ...

We just followed suit and laughed when she laughed and shook our heads yes or no as we felt prompted to. We all were giggling so hard standing there. It was quite comical. Luckily a man who spoke English came up behind us half way through and acted as the interpreter. About 20 ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Correra 241 Naples
Be carefull in napels
in april we stayed 4 nights in this hotel. we arrived by car and we could find the street where the hotel was located quite easily. it turned out to be an one-way road and the housenumbers started with 180-178-176 etc. we thought that the hotel was higher so at the end of the road we tried to find our way back. this was very difficult in all the little streets. at a certain moment we had to stop and at that moment a scooter hit our outside mirror. my husband turned down his window to put the mirror allright. at the moment he reached out someone took his arm and tried to steal his watch! it was a frightening experiende. no one came to help us. fortunately my husband managed to pull his arm back in the car again and the robbers didn't get his watch but it was broken and we were shaking.
later it turned out that we had passed the hotel as numbers on the other side of the road went up. the hotel didn't have a sign that could be read from the way we were coming.
the staff was very kind and helpfull. the hotel is located nicely and the room was big, clean and with bright colours.
napels and the hotel and worth visiting but don't wear any jewellery or bags. we witnessed two more robbery attempts on terraces.
Great Hotel and Holiday.
Such nice staff that are so helpful. Went to everywhere in 6 days stay so easily with piazza Dante round the corner and a lovely walk down via toledo to all the shops and markets. Very busy but such an amazing place.Walked up via toledo to the museo nazionale to see everything from pompeii the day before we went to pompeii. Pompeii was a whole day. Then went on same train line Circumvesuviana, to ercolano where you can take a little bus for 10 euros there and back, to mount versuvius, you pay about 6 euros when you get there to walk up the rest of the way but so worth it. when we got back to station, walked down from station to herculanium. also visited botanical gardens, royal palace, castel nuovo,castel sant'elmo, san martino and castel dell'ovo. breakfast was lovely. room amazing. Would go back. (i want to go shopping there, bags and shoes!!!).
Great, but with one important caveat
Following a couple of other TripAdvisor recommendations, we booked into this hotel well-placed in the centre of Naples. Incidentally, do not try to get there from the central station metro by changing onto the Piazza Dante line - you end up walking further in that ghastly subway system than if you just go one stop to Museo-Cavour, walk to the Via Pessina and turn right. Crossing the road is, however, another matter entirely!
We spent 2 nights in the hotel (end March-beginning April 2006) and would give it a very good recommendation were it not for the fact that our twin-bedded room faced the street. The racket kicked up by local youths bellowing at each other all night on the Saturday was unbelievable and endless. They even went on long after the rubbish collectors (yes, Naples apparently does have them) kicked up no end of noise themselves at 3:30am. So - if you go, make sure you are not facing the street.
We wanted to check back in a few days later and were assured we would get a room away from the street. Unfortunately some French tourists were stranded by an air strike and the charming receptionist was between a rock and a hard place. We could have insisted on our prior rights but he had gone to huge trouble to book us into their sister hotel, with free taxi and use of a room in his hotel during the day thrown in. We took pity on him (unfortunately as it turned out since the Hotel Rex is no great shakes even if it is in a more exclusive area). This was a shame but I'd still recommend his hotel with the one proviso above.
A bright surprise!
We arrived at this hotel when dark and after entering the gate on the street we entered the bright reception area with its warm colour scheme which was reflected by the warm friendly and very helpful staff.
Everything is spotlessly clean and bright.
The breakfast delicious and with plenty of variety..great.
Situated in a narrow street it is very close to the old city centre and the metro.
We loved it and would not hesitate to recommend it to others.
The most adorable hotel on earth
My husband and I stayed at Hotel Correra 241 for 2 nights in January 2006. We had planned to be in Naples only for 2 days/1 night, but immediately upon seeing the sparklingly bright Correra 241...and Naples...we decided to stay another night and day. We would've stayed longer still, but we hadn't brought enough supplies/clothing/etc with us from our vacation base in Rome.
The other reviewer of this hotel (btw, thank you, your review was one of the reasons we picked this hotel) was correct--this is an adorable, cute, sweet, colorful, lovely hotel. The staff was extraordinarily kind and helpful and fluent in English, although our not so great Italian no doubt would've been adequate. The check-in area, lobby, and room where breakfast is served are all decorated in bright reds and oranges with white highlights.
The hotel is in a very old building (maybe 150 years old?, older?), so everything is wonderfully proportioned--high ceilings, tall window casements, etc. Our room (104) had a towering casement window overlooking the street (Correra) and a small balcony where we could stand to enjoy the view. There were both brand new French doors and interior wooden shutters to close out the street sound. King-sized bed with a fantastic firm mattress. I wish our mattress at home was that good.
The ceiling was at least 15 feet high, painted blue with a white border. Blue floor; orange and red bedstands; blue headboard under red, orange, and yellow wall decorations; walls painted 2 (or 3?) different shades of blue; red desk; different-colored shelves in the dresser area. Everything is finished in a gorgeous high gloss. The photos I saw of the hotel, which look quite nice, didn't really convey how bright and friendly it all is in person.
And, like the room wasn't cute enough already, the bathroom was up a flight of stairs inside the room! The stairs were blue (of course) and it was such a gas to have a hotel room on two floors. Up the stairs to the roomy, spotless marble-sinked bathroom, complete with bidet. Nice hand-held shower in the tub. Everything new and working perfectly.
Apparently Correra 241 is a "new" kind of hotel--with spare, bright, colorful, modern furnishings. If you're expecting carpeting or antique furniture, this is not the place to stay. It's not in a swanky neighborhood, but it is in a wonderful, safe, and conveniently located neighborhood, a 5 minute walk to the superb National Archeological Museum (check out their Pompeii exhibits and Egyptian collection), and near scads of affordable and yummy restaurants, not to mention shops. It's also right near a metro stop and many many bus lines. If you're concerned about safety, the hotel itself is very secure--they buzz you in from a locked street-front camera-monitored gate. There's no curfew, you can come and go as you please.
There's an internet station for all the guests, which we used every day. Lastly, I must mention the great breakfast: croissants, toast, jam, yogurt, juices, cereal, etc., etc. More than enough to fill up on before spending the day walking around.
Yes, we loved it and we hope to return.
Contrast -naples and hotel correra241-
I stayed in hotel correara241 for 4days in Napoli. first time I saw the city sight, it was too terrible!! So that I thought the hotel might be terrible, either. However, after going through dark street and hotel entrance, how cute it was!! the hotel was too colourful and cute!! the room... was wonderful!! The room was ideal because it was like toy house, pretty, clean, bright. I want to stay in this hotel when I come back to Napoli.
