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 …
... for me to get a cab. He went over to the cab without me and negotiated €10 and told the cab driver I was his sister and them he carried my bags to the can and talked to the driver one more time and I was on my way, he literally made me feel so much better. I got to my hostel and everything else went smooth, it's just annoying because I saved €20 catching the later train and then I had to spend €10 of it on a cab :( ahh well lesson ...
... main speaking in Italian, we could on the whole understand what he was saying. They were lovely people and we stayed much longer than we would have just listening to him talking. But move we must. We pass the designer shops and beautiful buildings and find ourselves once more on the shore and here we find the road closed off and what seems like the whole of Naples is parading along the sea front enjoying the spring sunshine. It appears today is also a national holiday ...
... pottery, religious and cultural icons, and all manner of artifacts from first century life are here to ogle. Much of it looks like it is still in usable condition, so viewing them is like entering a time warp of nearly 2,000-years.
The remainder of our Sunday we spent visiting Castel St. Elmo high above both the old and the new city, which we reached via funicular railway, and later consuming cannoli in a cafe before ...
... then blew kisses and said as only an Italian man can, “I love you, I love you I love you” and all the single ladies - no they didn’t wiggle their booties like Beyonce but they giggled in return … probably waved their walking sticks at him to indicate they loved him too … who knows ? By now I was thoroughly annoyed as was the coughing Aussie lady and both of us we muttering “shut up” … now that we giggled about ...
