1) Travel day…. nothing to exciting. I can say, however, that Bridget and I used 4 modes of transportation without breaking a sweat or our piggy banks… If we were apart of a girl scout troop, this would be where we would make it rain in badges (and hopefully cookies because …
I do not have anything I want to say about Naples. We walked over to the oldest part of Naples, as this is one of the main tourist places and not to be missed, apparently, and it was disgusting, loud, and full of mafia looking people and black as night Africans, that get up in your business.

I cannot believe that I had chosen of all days to where my Havianas and not my Gowalk skeechers!

I'll also get a proper look at Vesuvius as well, which is probably one of the most dangerous volcanoes in the world, given that it's still active (last eruption was 1944, which isn't very long ago in geological terms), and almost 3 million people in the area around ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Royal Continental Hotel Naples
A bit of culture in the real Italy !
We have stayed in many 5 star hotels and consider the Royal Continental worthy of a 5th star ! This is a beautifully clean and comfortable hotel and the staff are exceptionally helpful and friendly. Though small, the swimming pool area is immaculate and well furnished with fabulous views of the bay of Naples. Although the city of Naples has a slightly seedy feel to it, it definitely feels like the "real deal" ie, not just tourist Italy and it's ideally placed for visits to Pompei, Rome, Sorrento, Capri and many more. We would definitely return to the area as there is so much to see and would not hesitate to stay again at the Royal Continental.
Brilliant hotel & location
we stayed at the Royal for 2 nights in August, if you want that little bit of class then this is a great hotel, staff were very friendly & helpful, breakfast was just above the average for Italy but with great views across the bay of Naples, the location was most probably the best in Naples, very safe & loads of restaurants nearby, the pool on the roof top is a bit on the small side but adequate for a little swim, we found the restaurant a bit on the expensive side but great food, a balcony is a must to appreciate the views across the bay to Capri, we paid 120 Euros a night & worth every single penny. Would definitely stay here again.
What a view!
We stayed at the Royal, upon check-in we were given a room on the 9th floor with a large patio and views of Castel dell'Ovo, Vesuvius, Capri (on a clear day), and the entire Bay of Naples. The room was new, clean, excellent value with a very comfortable bed with clean linens changed daily. As it was very warm and humid, the ocean breezes on the ninth floor patios made our stay there wonderful! Plus, a welcoming bottle of Prosecco upon arrival. The staff was very warm, polite, helpful and seemed eager to accomodate our requests.
The staff's reccomendation for for a chauffer with private car to tour the entire area including Pompei, Amalfi to Sorrento and back could not have been better.
We will definitely stay at the royal on our next trip to Naples!
Whever said "See Naples & Die!"wasn't far wrong.Like the city that is our home in England-Liverpool-Ignore the bad press!This place is pure energy with a vibe i've never experienced outside of New York.
Hotel Royal is centrally located in Sorrento and everything is within walking distance. The rooms are super clean and the grounds are well maintained. We had a room on the 3rd floor facing the ocean with a view of Mt. Vesuvius and Naples. Caution: We slept with the sliding glass door opened every night and were attacked by mosquitoes, also, there was early morning noise from ships coming into the harbor, but I was too tired to care. I could have closed the sliding glass door and prevented it, but the cool sea breeze was worth it. The service from the dining staff is suburb and very helpful. For breakfast, we ate at the hotel everyday and for dinner we ate about 5 times. Breakfast was included with our room and your choices were omelets, bacon, ham, potatoes, cheeses, variety of fruits, cereal, sweet rolls, coffee, tea, and juices. Dinner was just as good and we tried a lot of different dishes. We miss our friends, Alberto, Mario and Antonio - they kept us well fed. Salvatore and Luigi were at the front desk and they were very helpful. They set up our trips to the Isle of Capri, Isle of Ischia (mineral springs), trip to a cheese farm, Amalfi coast, Positano, Ravello, Herculon and Pompeii. Cost of trips varied from 20-65 Euros. Take Bus line A and it will take you to an old abandon Roman villa - with a view to die for. Hotel Royal has laundry service, mini bar and a safe. We left our safe open a few times and everything was there when we came back. We visited Hotel Royal in Sorrento later October and this was the end of the tourist season, so that means I found a lot of bargains on designer shoes and clothes. I highly recommend this hotel because of its service, food, cleanliness and location.
Huge room, great view, great pool on roof
We stayed here at the beginning of October. It was arranged by the conference organizer - our conference was in the hotel. We had a huge room (even by American standards), a great view straight out to sea and the Maritime Fortress, great pool on the roof. Was really great.
See Naples and LIVE
Jenny and myself stayed at the Royal hotel earlier this year.
Citalia provided us with a balconied room looking over the sea to Castel dell'Ovo.
The view was super, we ate in the hotel more than once, which is unusual for us, and we found Naples and its environs really interesting.
If one is looking for a hotel slap bang in the middle of Naples then the Royal would not suit.
However, if one is looking for a hotel within walking distance of the centre of Naples, but with beautiful views and good service and facilities then the Royal is more than acceptable.
The Royal was great
Stayed in the Royal - it and the Continental are side-by-side. Chose the Royal because the lobby was much nicer and the exterior was neat and attractive - the paint is peeling off the Continental everywhere.
Rooms in both were good. The breakfast room is in the Royal on the second floor with a great view of the Castle directly in front. Very nice breakfast spread - ham, cheese, jam, rolls, sweet buns, cereal, fruit, juice - you can ask for a capaccino. Room was a corner room with a balcony and had a fantastic view. Room was a good size and very clean and looked new; bathroom was large and new and clean. Had a working TV and in-room safe. Good location to get around Naples from. Very friendly and helpful staff at reception.
Loved the Royal, but the Continental was not so nice
I spent 3&1/2 weeks at the Hotel Royal Continental. While I had made reservations for the Hotel Royal, for the first week they stuck me in the Continental. I was not impressed witht eh continental. It was a bit beaten up and not as nice as the Royal. The last twoo weeks, at my request, they moved me to a balconey room overlooking the Bay of Naples. It was clean, neat and comfortable. The view was un believable.
Food and hotel service were excelent. They took care of every need.
Also, the Royal has its own garage, which in Naples is a necessary, if you want your car there in the morning. I'm going back for 25 days in two weeks and am staying at the Royal.
