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 …
... hours with Mario. Ahhh...Mario...what lovely memories we will all have of Mario, the driver. Mario, the tour guide. Mario, the Italian who talks A LOT. Mario, the man who liked to let us know that he knew everything and everyone. If you have ever seen the movie "My Big Fat Greek Wedding", the father of the main character is a good representation of Mario, except that Mario had a strong Italian accent.
It was too funny that Paul and Marie, Ben and I had not ...
... relaxing afternoon by the beach more than made up. The place is dotted with these fancy beach clubs and ridiculously priced beach beds, but there are a few public spaces. So we found a pebbly spot where the waves were enormous. The swim was awesome. A little rock perched up out of the water and we climbed up to soak up the sun. A couple of hours later, refreshed and ravenous, we got ourselves a Panini Caprese (with mozzarella and tomatoes) and took the ferry home. ...
... We worked out the water buses and jumped on one of them. Got dropped off at the right stop, but still had to find our hotel from there. Walked up and down " calli's", ( lane ways ) and finally stumbled across it after some terse, over there from a shop owner. Thanks for your happy to help you attitude, not! All that deserved a very cold beer. Exploring the area tomorrow, for now we ...
... the beach was made of rocks, not sand. We also wet our feet in the water.
The next day we went to the town of Sorrento and had a look around town. In the afternoon we went to a beach called Marina Di Puolo and this beach had sand, and the rocks were in the water.
On Tuesday we had a pizza day with Lucia and some Australians from Bundoora. One of them was a man named David. He used to be my Uncle's old boss. We ...
