This hotel wasn't too bad but I think where it is would put off a lot of people. It's not too far from the train station and it seems like you have to walk through the back streets of Brooklyn to get there. The hotel was at the end of a cul-de-sac. When we walked in the receptionist was laying down on the sofa watching TV. He checked us in and showed us to our room. The room itself was too bad. It was clean, we had air con and a TV. But our double bed was two single beds pushed together which meant I was the one sleeping in crack haha. The bathroom on the other hand was nice.
Outside of the hotel was rough and rugged. Was really dirty but we kind of liked this because it gave the area some character. When we went for a wonder and brought back some pizzas the owner didn't mind at all which was good.
We were happy with this hotel because it was cheap and cheerful but for some people its not the best place to stay because of where it is. If it is a flying visit like ours then its good for that but wouldn't stay there for a week or so.

We caught the late train from Rome to Naples so we didn't actually get into Naples gone 9pm. As soon as we left the train station we where amazed how hectic it was. Not only was it hectic but it was really really dirty. Nothing like the other cities we had been to.
Our hotel wasn't too far away from the train …
... is funny how many parts of Asia remind you of how ridiculously rich the average person is. Europe is the opposite. We arrived back at our port to wait for the ferry from Capri to Ischia. Unfortunately, when we went to the right place, we found out we'd been given the wrong information from not one, but two information booths. We missed the last ferry to our island. We wasted a good chunk of time and money ferrying back to Napoli, waiting around and ...
... over the place. Not at all like the other cities we have been to. In saying that though, their coastline is very pretty and some of their architecture is amazing. The central area appears to be very old with narrow lanes cobblestone roads and buildings that haven't been maintained for 50 years. We hopped off the bus hoping to find the Duomo (Cathedral). This took quite some time. Phillip is usually excellent following ...
We were up early and off the boat by 8am. We met our driver but, for some reason, their van wasn't big enough for 16 so we had to wait while they exchanged it. Losing about 45 minutes, we headed out to visit Pompeii. Turns out it is located about a half hour away so we got there early enough and started our tour with a special Pompeii guide. Very interesting. The town has been under excavation for over 150 years and very well preserved because of the 20' of ash that covered the ...
... a seaport at the time but has become inland after the eruption. Because it was a seaport city it had many slaves and visiting sailors. The city was set up to handle the visiting sailors to which many sought out the brothels of the city. Everywhere, in stone are phallic symbols directing those to houses of ill repute. Once we completed our tour of Pompeii, we headed back to the ship. Tomorrow a much needed day at ...
