Travel Blogs from Naples

Gross Naples, Gorgeous Pompeii

A travel blog entry by tom_and_emma


Our short stay in Naples was primarily to allow us to visit the ancient ruins of Pompeii. The city of Naples is quite rough. It feels very unloved! There is rubbish everywhere in the streets even around the city centre. This is not rubbish in bags, but piles of stinking food and nappies and every now and then some sewage to go along with it! It is …

Not the cleanest place!

A travel blog entry by r1856


We arrived in Naples on Friday afternoon. We had heard from the tour guide in Rome to be careful in Naples because there were a lot of pick pockets! We haven't gone anywhere without the guys! Even getting off the train we were approached by at least 10 guys wanting to help us! We were told not to trust them! The hotel is about 3 blocks from the …

This is hands down the scariest place ever. Even Brescia and Budapest feel like Vatican City compared to here. The city is absolutely dirty, garbage are strewn everywhere, bonfires are lit up in seperate places including one burning advertisement boards down, horns tooting everywhere like in India, and (as Sunny's cousin from Brescia told us) there …

Mount Vesuvius and Pompeii

A travel blog entry by malloryharvie

Brittany and I had booked a 13 hour tour to visit Naples, Mount Vesuvius and Pompeii, though to be fair we just drive through Naples. It was another early morning as we had to leave our hotel at 6:45am to walk to the meeting spot across the city for 7:15am. Upon arrival we were divided into different groups and assigned to our tour guide, Robert. Actually, his name was Roberto (with a rolling 'r'), but we requested we call him Robert before we butchered ...

Our First Port - Naples

A travel blog entry by bsrancho5


... magician....nothing to write home about but gave us a few chuckles. Rich & Brian checked out the casino, which they said was practically deserted....although they allow smoking in there & most of the ship is non-smoking, so maybe that has something to do with it (lack of a crowd). Friday night is a smoke-free night, so they plan to do some gambling...wish them luck!

No seasickness plans to diet yet....enjoying everything! ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews BEST WESTERN Hotel Plaza Naples

    Lovely Hotel


    We stayed for three nights at the end of july and were glad we chose this hotel - were originally booked into another one but after reading reviews on this site decided to cancel and rebooked the Plaza.

    Good location... for the area


    Like a lot of the tourist hotels, the Plaza is close to the Piazza Garibaldi, an enormous square that is home to the main railway station and the bus terminus, and which has a reputation for being seedy and dangerous. Our experience should be reassuring, however. We often went through Garibaldi between midnight and 1am and, while it is certainly a bit scuzzy, it is not threatening. If you are a city person, you'll easily take it in your stride.

    Value for money


    This hotel is good value for money as it is clean, comfortable, great bathroom, and close to train station. The breakfast was good - love the different flavour yoghurts! The neighbourhood is OK - we never felt threatened in any way even when returning to hotel after a meal in the pm. The staff were really helpful and friendly -even on the night Italy got knocked out of the Euro 2004 competition! I would definitely stay there again.

    This hotel is a little gem


    We stayed at the Plaza from the 13th til the 20th June 2004 and thought it was a brilliant hotel for the money. The staff were incredibly friendly and very helpful. We agree with all the other comments and would point out that there is a restaurant but this was not open every evening - only on occasional nights. We would not hesitate to stay at this hotel again.

    Excellent value for money in Naples


    Agree with all previous comments here. Friendly staff, very good breakfast and very good value for money.

    Close proximity to the railway station, (great for excursions to nearby places such as Pompei and Sorrento) although this is also a bit of a drawback if you want to find a nice restaurant in the evening or just to go for a walk, as, further to previous comments, the surrounding area is not the most salubrious! Recommend that you ask reception staff for their recommendations.

    Just one point; there doesn't appear to be a hotel restaurant, contrary to their publicity.

    Loved this friendly Hotel


    Just got back from Naples 3/6/04 we loved staying at this friendly and welcoming hotel. The room was clean, more than big enough for two and very nicely decorated. We were at the back of the hotel and it was very quiet. The view out of the window was the back of the surrounding flats and a courtyard but we didnt find it unpleasant it was just part of Naples life. The breakfast was continental style and very nice. The cappichino coffee was wonderful. All the staff were pleasant and very helpful especially as my daughter has a nut allergy. The surrounding area was a bit rough looking but so was much of Naples. We didnt feel uneasy walking around and nobody approached us. We would definately go back to this hotel again

    Good value for money with interesting surroundings!!!!


    Having read reviews of the Plaza on this website I went prepared (and a little scared!) and they were pretty spot on!!! The hotel was clean, recently refurbished and had excellent soundproofing (which is very important considering the noise in the area, although this abates a fair bit at night). Most of the staff (especially Paolo and Luigi) were really friendly and came up with a fabulous restaurant recommendation that we would never have come across by chance. When we drove in from the airport though it became clear that the area outside is not the most salubrious, with the odd prostitute and the like quite closeby but we were aware of our surroundings just made sure we didn't flash the cash etc, but then again you shouldn't do that anywhere in Naples! The hotel was great value for money and if you are looking for a base with basic clean amenities including a bar and friendly staff this is a wonderful. The main night action is a taxi ride away (which is an experience in itself!) but these are pretty inexpensive and they can be ordered for you from reception. If I was on a budget again I would go here without question. I've stayed in more disappointing 4 star hotels for twice the price. If you are happy to walk around Kings Cross in London then you'll be fine here! You can also buy a mean slice of Pizza at the station (as well as get to Pompei and Sorrento by direct route) and if you need a fake handbag you've come to the right place!

    Recetly Renovated- great soundproofing


    We stayed at the Plaza Hotel on 3/31/04 for one night, which was our first in Italy. Our primary reason for coming to Naples was its proximity to Pompei. I found the Plaza Hotel on Expedia for a rate of 100 euro/night including breakfast. Now, anyone traveling to Naples probably knows its not the most beautiful or interesting of Italian cities. We had been warned about crime. The hotel is very close to the train station (about 3-4 blocks), the most central route takes you past countless vendors all wanting you to buy their wares, which can be annoying when dealing with luggage. However, there is a side street you can take which is as direct with less hassle. The hotel itself has been renovated to have a very modern look in the past 2 years. The rooms and bathrooms are typically small italian hotel rooms but are clean, nicely decorated and furbished nicely. Our room had a mini bar, TV, phone and small balcony overlooking the street. Despite warnings, we didn't feel unsafe in Naples at all and the balcony of our second story room had excellent doublepaned plantation style shutters that made us feel very secure even when the doors were open and just the shutters were locked for some airflow. The breakfast was excellent on the rooftop dining room and the staff were all very helpful. We even left our luggage at the front desk when we went to Pompeii for the day and came back that evening before we returned to Rome. We enjoyed our stay in Naples despite its lackluster appearance and this also due to how comfortable we were at the Plaza Hotel.
