... the grocer and bought dinner..too tired to go out..plus we had to pack..so we could be ready to leave in the morning. Can't believe our week here is finished.
I must say, we truly loved Naples. Not once did we feel unsafe, after tons of warnings from good friends. The Naples locals were so warm, friendly and helpful. This morning while J and I were having cappuccino and a pastry (of course) there was an SUV in front ...
... to the beach for a little bit when the sun was starting to set. It was beautiful! The place was closing up so we decided to head out a little early. Kevin's phone was dying, so we couldn't use it to call the lady to tell her to either pick us up now or not come later. We grabbed another cab and ate some dinner by the port. The kids were going around in their costumes and trick-or-treating to the restaurants. They definitely don't do Halloween like we do. Everyone was either ...
... wash hair and be on time in the Main dining room for a nice meal after a full day of steamy sight-seeing. Our cabin usually looks like a cyclone went through it, but this is vacation time and our room steward is good about being able to deal with our messes. The girls try each night to make friends in the Loft, but not many kids show up or seem to be using the Loft. Could be that they are worn out from a full day's touring and they just hang back with family for ...
... sandwich, lettuce or just a burger is impossible around here. Finally we had to settle on a pizza from the corner cafe, 2 euro. What a bargain! This must the day for bargains, finally. Went to Gino Sorbillo pizzeria recommended to us by the hotel. If patronage is anything to go by then this place must be great it was packed. Ordered a Diavola,it was nice. Pizza took only 5 minutes to cook, ...
... and not see every nook and cranny of the city. It's really that big.
Another train ride, and we found ourselves back in Napoli, enjoying a sort of fried bread-dough pocket filled with cheese and tomatoes and prosciutto and other tasty things, across the street from the station. Yum. We finished the day with one last, long ride, past the light of cities in the mountains, back into Boiano, for a good night's sleep.

TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Palazzo Alabardieri Naples
The main part of the hotel was full so I was in a second block on the next street. It meant I had a huge room because they could also be used as self catering apartments, however the room smelt quite strongly of stale smoke and there was no wifi (which there was in the main part of the hotel). The block was very secure and nicely decorated and the staff were all very friendly and helpful.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Palazzo Alabardieri Naples
Aucune critique ne peut être formulée à son encontre, sauf un tout petit détail technique l'entrée est difficile à trouver et meriterait une meilleur signalisation
Beautifully decorated room with desk, small table, ample closet space, very good firm mattress, modern bathroom. Excellent breakfast in a lovely setting with good service.
we stayed three nights at the hotel. It is in a very good location,the room was very pleasent and quiet and last but not least the service given by the reception and housekeaping staff was exeptional.We arrived without lugage(Alitalia misplaced it) and the staff gave us all the help to retrieve the lugage and make our stay pleasent and comfortable until the last minute of our stay. Very recommended.
In the lobby is a guest book that is filled with current rave reviews. We left too quickly early in the morning to add to them.
Worth every penny
This is definitely a great 4* place by international standards (if not more compared to other famous Naples etablisments of that category...). Easy to reach by bus, walking.
I always stay in hotels in Chiaja and while most are as over-priced as many "hotels" in Naples (without offering much), this one is definitely worth every penny. Centrally located, yet perfectly protected from the permanent Neapolitan background noise.
Absolutely great service desk, eager to help out. Breakfast menue with a huge range of foods on offer. Virtually something for everyone.
Certainly will book there again!
We stayed three days at the beginning and 3 days at the end of our trip. My luggage was delayed and the front desk staff checked on delivery for me. It did not arrive until the second night at 11:00pm! The hotel is a small boutique hotel in the middle of the upscale shopping district. Giorgio Armani boutique is directly across the street from the hotel entrance. The street is quite narrow and taxis must wait in the plaza which is about 1/2 a block away. (The bellman retrieve your bags for you.)
I stayed 4 nights at the Hotel Palazzo Alabardieri. I'm pleased to highly recommend this hotel. Here is why. Although is not an International hotel, or because,it offer very personal service that I have not experienced in larger hotels. I had had some dificulties getting together with the tour company rep that I had booked from the US for my trips to Pompey and around Naples. The hotel staff allowed me to use the reception computer (they even provided assistance with the Italian key board) so I could contact the travel agency.
This hotel is relatively new. The rooms are spacious and bathrooms are very modern. The location of the hotel is in a very trendy safe area near the harbour. The Staff are extremely friendly and the room rate was very reasonable for a Naples hotel. EUR180
