... through ridiculously perched villages. I can see that the views are wonderful but I would never come to stay. Some of the hotels have 'beaches', most have wooden or rock decks but they are a 100m below the hotel down massive flights of steps, sometime with a lift. There seemed to be loads of potentially nice restaurants but most had absolutely nowhere to park. All very bizarre. It was slow driving and for ...

Before going to the ruins we spent some time walking around the modern Pompeii, went into the church and walked through the local market.
Pompeii was an extrordinary place to visit. This may sound stupid, but I was so surprised at how much it is like a real modern-day town, shops and businesses are clearly defined with ...

We really enjoyed seeing the ruins but after a while, they all looked alike and it was a warm day. After seeing the ruins, we went to tour a museum and met another couple from our ship. We toured a few museums together and shared a taxi back to the ship.
We made it back to the ship in time to enjoy cocktails out on our balcony, then we all got freshened up & had dinner in ...
... fun! And I kissed an Italian boy. But then ditched him when I wanted to go home. Hehehehe! He didn't really speak English anyway, and my Italian is non-existent; our language in common was French, so we could communicate a bit... hmm. Anyways, I went back to the hostel with my friends, an Australian girl named Logan, a Canadian dude and a New Zealander :) Sunday 5 May 2013: Slept in. Massively hungover. Hungry. Head in so much pain. Meh!! Today was a ...

I’ve checked a box, a goal, to be at sea for 3 months….I did it ….will I return? Only the heart knows, but first….more massage studies, and a break.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Majestic Naples
Not quite there.......
Don't get me wrong this is not a bad hotel. The service was polite and helpful. the room was clean and adequate. If you are happy to be away from the hullabaloo it's a good location. And right at the bottom of the road is a little cafe where you can sit and eat ice cream as the sun goes down. But the sunbeds around the pool are taken before 8am and there is almost a holiday camp feel about the place, I guess there are lots of two week residents and relationships get built up and create an atmosphere we are not used to. Nevertheless we stayed a coule of days and the campers seemed happy!!
Just back from a weekend spent around the Naples gulf. We stayed at the Majestic for the last night of our trip, and to be honest wasn't really excited about going to Naples in comparison to Sorrento and Capri. However, the hotel was gorgeous, and as we got a really good deal on Expedia, we were over the moon. The hotel is definately more than a three star.
The rooms were of a great size and the bathroom was beautiful!
The location was perfect with great shopping around the corner. The only regret is, that I didn't leave more time in Naples.
The concierge ordered us a taxi for the airport in the morning which only cost us €19. Considering that a taxi charged us €20 from the port to the hotel - which shouldn't of cost more than €10!!! Bummer!!
Overall, loved the hotel, loved the location and especially loved the Pizza!!
Excellent hotel in the district of Chiaia (pedestrian streets with restaurants, nice shops and bars), a few minutes walking from Piazza Plebiscito and from the sea. The staff was friendly and helpful, the room large and comfortable (it's not the most luxurious hotel, but it's really OK for a short stay or for business). Recommended.
It was Majestic for us too
My family of 3 older kids, my wife and I just returned from a very nice stay at the Majestic Hotel -- and an enjoyable 4-day New Years in Naples. The hotel gave us two rooms with an anteroom that had a pull out couch, meaning there was plenty of room for five. The rooms and bathrooms were nicely designed and in excellent condition. The location worked very well for us -- a short walk to the metro and plenty of pleasant and not expensive restaurants nearby. Finally, like other reviewers, we found the staff very pleasant and helpful at all times. Highly recommended.
A Great Choice In Napoli
Many friends told us we would not enjoy Naples; however we found one of the keys is staying at the right hotel. We loved the location of the Majestic not far from the Riviera de Chiaia in the middle of a wonderful and fashionable shopping district. Our room (904) had a beautiful view of the city and the bay. In addition it was very spacious and well appointed. The staff (especially Guiseppe and Antonio) were very nice. We absolutely enjoyed it. If you rent a car (as we did) they have their own garage which in Naples is important. We cannot reccomend this hotel highly enough!
Off the Beaten Track A Little
Stayed here for three nights in August 2004. A small bit of the beaten track, but was very quiet which is welcomed in this crazy city.
We had a room with a beautiful sea view, and all the mod cons you'd expect including a bath and a shower in the bathroom.
We didn't see many other guests during our stay and accordingly the hotel felt quiet empty and lonely.
First class service, great location.
My friend and I stayed here seven nights from December 30, 2003. On previous visits I've stayed at Parkers and the Santa Lucia. Both are great hotels but the Majestic is extrordinary for its service and modern comforts. We were in room 804 which is huge by Italian standards and which had a lovely large bathroom and fantastic view across the bay to Capri. Its Chiaia locaton is perfect, just a short walk to Piazza Vittoria on the bay and a twenty minute walk to Galeria Umberto, the Teatro San Carlo and Via Roma. The selection of shops is nice and there is even a small department store around the corner. The Piazza Amadeo Metro stop is just a few blocks away. The staff makes this hotel shine. Their kindness and efficiency made our visit a joy.
The view from our room on the top floor was amazing. The hotel is well-equipped with all the amenities. It was clean, friendly, and accommodating. We wish the bellhop had explained all of the features in our room (light switches, window blinds, etc. are all electronic) and the room was actually chilly due to air conditioning. However, the space was beautiful and the front desk helpful. I was disappointed not to be able to find any Internet connections in the entire neighborhood, but we enjoyed our stay.
Great hotel - modern and civilised but what impressed me was the superb personal service from all the staff. We were 2 women travelling together - got lots of hassle in other hotels but here we were very well looked after and a very secure hotel! SUPER
Lovely hotel, helpful staff.....parking garage. Wonderful breakfast.
Room very nice, bathroom roomy. Easy walk down to the bay, or up. Good shopping nearby.
