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.

... 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 ...
... make this classic Italian liqueur. I really wished that we could have spent more time in Capri or that it were warmer because I thought it was a beautiful and relaxing place.
Italy has been a blast but I am getting tired of travelling and will enjoy going back home to England :)

1. Limoncello is actually pretty alcoholic so when you bring it home for your mom to try, she probably shouldn't try to chug it...
... been staying in the house of Giovanni - a friendly and very patriotic Napoli man. When we first arrived (me lugging my massive suitcase up 4 flights of steps) he sat us all down for an hour or so and explained where all the main attractions were situated and how to get to them - chain smoking the whole time, and using very colourful language. He then insisted on cooking us some sort of pasta dish with 10 eggs and bacon, and gave us each a massive serving (which worked out well as it ...
... Lemons. They are everywhere. The Italians have managed to make everything out of lemons, hand cream, pasta, pizza, emboldened them on everything from tea towels to fridge magnets to ceramic tiles, whatever is in this town it has a lemon attached to it. The best of all is the Lemoncello, drink this ice cold as an digestive after dinner, in fact any ole time of the day, it is so refreshing. After lunch we headed to ...
... return trip to the ship, but we were ready to quit by then. We'd done a lot of walking and much of it on hilly terrain, so I think the ride back in the air-conditioned van provided us all with a cat nap.
Back on board and time to shower and dress for dinner. We went to the show in the theater after dinner and then closed out the night at the "Howl at the Moon" piano bar. I crashed well before Jan, but she stayed til they finished up.
