Historical Traveler Reviews Holiday Inn Naples
Superb hotel at a wrong location
Big advantage:nice AND safe hotel
Stayed for 4 nights [28/10/04 till 31/10/04]
Room .bathroom,breakfast,staff etc ...everything was superb but...although there was a shuttle bus service [to and from city center and airport]...the hotel is out in nowhere! Far from the center,without good public transportation links to the main tourist attractions.I wouldn't recommend this hotel for someone who wants to have easy access to the city's attractions
Napoli itself is gorgeous
Great Place.. Hotel is situated off the main road, friendly staff, great service, shuttle bus to Naples centre etc. Great base to travel around.
We stayed at this hotel in June 2004. I thought it was good value for the rates charged: small but clean and modern rooms, comfortable beds, good (but not excellent) breakfast buffet. Staff were helpful and attentive. Walking to the city centre is not really an option from this hotel, but given that Piazza Garibaldi is really just a giant bus and train station and that the city centre is pretty drab at night, I was quite relieved to have stayed at the Centro Direzionale. The shuttle service worked well, but the shuttles are small (so get on the queue for them at least 15 min before scheduled departure). Taxis to the city centre cost about 10 euros. Don't be alarmed by the hotel's appearance when the cab pulls up: the Centro Direzionale separates car traffic from pedestrians, so when you arrive in a car you end up approaching the hotel from the back entrance, rather than the front.
Good for what it is
This place was perfect as a transit.
We were picked up from the airport in the shuttle and stayed only 1 night. We were upgraded in room size and the staff were friendly and helpful.
We then used the shuttle to get to the train station the next morning.
Wouldn't recommend as a place to stay if wanting to see Naples, but good if your flying in to see Pompei and then heading off.
Quiet and Clean, But Don't Expect Smiley Service
We stayed here for 2 nights. I would probably stay again, but only because the room was clean and safe. Naples is quite a stressful place to begin with, so I am trying separate that thought with the hotel.
Like previous reviewer said, this hotel not exactly close by Piazza Garibaldi but the shuttles can get you there (on their set schedule).
Also the shuttle can get you to airport (except early Sunday morning/ actually maybe not Sunday at all- check).Not to worry, the baggage/transportation desk on floor -1 can get a taxi for you pronto, taxi was very prompt when they called it. Speak up when you go to the front desk, you could stand there all day looking like you want help, they won't care (was like that in lots of places in Italy). Hotel good if you want quiet, away from the city center chaos, if you want to be where the action is in the middle of hair on fire Naples, this isn't the place. I found best deal directly through the Holiday Inn site
Naples is Fellini's Italy
October 2003. We staye at the Holiday in for 4 nights. Rooms are very spacious and clean. Staff is very pleasant and professional. The beakfast buffet is very good for a 4 star hotel. We also had the evening buffet which was great. There are only two problems: although we had a room on the 14 floor we heard the noises from the market below all night. For people who do not like to walk the hotel is a bit far out. The hotel has a shuttle though. We were very happy that we had not chosen a hotel on Piazza Garribaldi-far too seady and unpleasant. Going to Pompeji and Herculaneum we used the train Circumvesuviana which was very cheap and always on time (every half hour). The clerk at the informationdesk of the train (Piazza Garibaldi) was extremely helpful and nice. Actually people went out of their way to help. Don't let rumors of crime keep you away-it's no worse than anywhere else. It is a place with the same kind of theatrical charm you find in Fellini's films
We stayed in this lousy hotel for one night in October 2003, we were travelling through Italy and we thought that holliday inn would always be a good and safe choice. What a mistake this was. This hotel, which is actually a Holliday Inn Resort, designed for families on their vacation, deserves nothing else than a big zero on the score card. We hired the what they call "Executive Suite", basically nothing more than a larger room, but then extremely bad and ugly furnished. Then hear this: it began to rain in the middle of the night, and we could actually hear the rain pouring down on the seiling of our room - so many leackages the roof had ! Then there was an electricy outfall at 09:00 pm - which is obviously normal because every room seemed to carry an emergency light when these things happen. There we were at 09:00 pm with just one small light in our big ugly room. Oh and then there is the hotel restaurant: we had a steak which looked and tasted very close to a large piece of rubber. The kids didn't like their pasta either (hey, is this Italy ? My pasta is much better !). The breakfast was lousy too, the rooms were dirty. Don't ever go here, this is zero. Lots of very strange people amongst the hotel staff too: creepy from time to time.

As it was empty except for our tour group I decided to just lay down on the bench seat behind the group who all had their backs turned away from me looking at the next subject. In doing so I got the most wonderful view of the ceiling frescoes......I was so pleased. Until, that is, it came time for me to sit up.

Before I flew to Italy, it took a bit of convincing in order to get my friend to agree to go to Pompeii. We had been told that Naples was a scary place and not worth the risks. Even Italians were telling us that it was dirty and teenagers rob you blind. These raised no concern to me. When I have a goal in mind there is nothing that will stop me and I was going to see Pompeii no matter what. The first time I learned of Pompeii I was hooked. It had been a top destination of mine ...
