Nice, modern hotel, with friendly service and a lovely rooftop terrace. Excellent breakfast with a selection of hot dishes, in addition to cereals, pastries, cakes, bread, juice, cappuccino/espresso, etc.
Conveniently-located a very short walk to the train station, but keep in mind that the train station area isn't the nicest spot later at night - still safe, but seedy.

Historical Traveler Reviews UNA Hotel Napoli Naples
Excellent new hotel downtown Naples
We can recommend this hotel. It is clean, functional and beds are very comfortable. Staff are attentive, cheerful and helpful.
Breakfast is good and meals can be taken on the roof top patio as dining room is on the topmost floor.
We had the room with disabled facilities which we required and while the grab bars were adequate a drop down rail near the W.C. would have been helpful. Also the W.C. should have been a higher bowl which would have been normal for a well equipped disabled bathroom.
Another point I must mention is if you buy an airport transfer ticket at the hotel desk for Euro 18 the taxi driver only gets Euro 13 when he redeems it and they are unhappy with this so if you want to keep your taxi driver sweet pay him cash at the end of the journey.
Modern hotel, very convenient location.
We checked into the UNA for 5 nights at the start of a two week tour of Naples and the archaeological sites from Herculaneum to Velia. We also spent our last night at the hotel before flying back to London. The hotel is ideally placed for the bus link to the airport, buses, trams, the mainline train station, metro and the Circumvesuviana with links to Pompeii and Herculaneum. Easy access to the heart of town, key sights and the archaeological museum. We were also able to pick up a car from the Avis office at the station for further excursions to Amalfi, Paestum and Velia. The UNA is a new, ultra modern hotel. Very well equipped and comfortable bedrooms. Good bar/café on the roof. Excellent breakfast buffet.
The Piazza Garibaldi is very busy, somewhat run-down and a working part of the city. The hotel is not in the tourist zone, need for vigilance for personal security but the hotel is an oasis and the location is very convenient.
Great hotel in Naples
My husband and I stayed in this hotel for one night as we were flying out of Naples early in the morning.
We had travelled to Naples by train and the hotel is conveniently located just across the square from the station.
We were really impressed with this hotel which has only been open for four months. The whole building seems to have been renovated and the decor is very airy and modern. Our room was spacious and very comfortable. There were shutters and doors opening on to the balcony but these kept the noise out and the room was very quiet. The bathroom was quite big and the shower was big enough for two!
The staff were helpful and spoke good English and they gave us recommendations of areas to visit.
Breakfast was served on the sixth floor roof terrace overlooking Mount Vesuvius and there was a good selection of food available. The hotel restaurant is also on this floor and they have a good menu. Although we didn't end up eating there, we didn't see many restaurants within walking distance
The only bad thing about the hotel is the area - it's really not great and we ended up having coffee in the hotel bar at night as we weren't too happy about wandering the streets in the dark!
I would definitely recommend this hotel if you have to stay in Naples but I don't think it's somewhere you would want to stay for a long break.
Peaceful haven amongst the noise
Arrived from Agropoli into Central Station and was delighted to see our hotel was located across the square. It looked like a 3 minute walk but this turned into an obstacle course and was quite nerve racking, trying to dodge cars, buses and taxis who seem to drive with one hand and use their other hand to "beep". Traffic lights mean absolutely nothing here.
However, 15 minutes later we checked into our hotel. Once inside the doors you could forget about the noise and the filth on the streets outside. Our room was to the side of the hotel, I requested a quieter room knowing that it was a busy location and I can only imagine what the front rooms facing the square were like. The room was average in size though no space to eat room service. The beds were very comfortable with choice of pillows and the bathroom was sufficient. I think we may have gotten one of the smaller rooms.
The restaurant was located on the top floor and was very modern and peaceful. The service was excellent and the food magnificent. Breakfast was also served here and was very nice.
Overall this hotel was very very clean, modern, calm and peaceful in an area that I would never choose to stay again.
Good choice in Naples
My girlfriend and me were looking for a place to stay in Naples and checked at the Una website, as we had previously stayed in the Una Hotel in Florence. When we found out that Una had opened a new hotel in Naples, we did not hesitate to make the booking.
The first thing to say is that the hotel is brand new,which is mainly good news, although some details were still missing (like cable tv in the rooms)
The Una Hotel in Naples is situated in the Piazza Garibaldi, the same square where the main train station is located which can be very helpful if you travel by train (advisable if you are not an adventureous driver) and is not far away from main attractions. On the negative side, Piazza Garibaldi is not the cleanest spot in Naples and is very loud (tip: ask for a room on the side that faces the backstreet)
The rooms are modernly decorated and beds are very comfortable. We had some difficulties with our clothes, as there was not enough room to store it, but other than that we were more than happy in the hotel (the staff is professional and friendly). Breakfast is served in the penthouse with views to the Vesuvius, there is everything you would wish for (although the orange juice is not natural which surprised me given that we were in a citrics producing region)
All in all this is a perfect choice in Naples and if you can get one of their online offers, a very good value for money!
Very modern and clean hotel, perfect location
When looking for a hotel in Italy it is very easy to find obsolete rooms/hotels with an urgent need to be refurbished. Mostly are quite expensive for what you get. So the best way to find a good value hotel is to look for a new one. I have been in a few, but UNA Hotel Napoli is a VERY GOOD value hotel.
Located on Piazza Garibaldi (corner Corso Umberto) it is a perfect place to start wandering either through the Old Town (Spaccanapoli...) or down busy Corso Umberto.
The rooms I stayed in is big although I know there are smaller ones (but not tiny). The bathroom was huge, and the details like plasma TV, soundproof room, restaurant with a nice terrace and views, good breakfast buffé, just adds up points to my evaluation. BTW, for a fee of 20€ a night you can leave your car in a brand new garage just a couple of minutes from the hotel. 24/7 watch. Well worth it in an area where it is difficult to park.
Definitely a worthwhile place to stay in Naples!
On the last day of our honeymoon we were in Sorrento, Italy. We needed a place to stay near the airport in Naples to catch a 7am flight home. Our travel agent booked us at the Palace Hotel and it was awful! We drove from Sorrento, which was the most breathtaking place either of us had ever seen, and arived in Naples at sunset. We were greeted by bums and garbage all over the sidewalks in front of the hotel. Our room was dirty, had a hole in the wall and smelled like mildew. The bed was also very uncomfortable. Due to this, and all the noise from the street, we did not sleep at all that night. At 4am, on the way to the airport, we saw what appeared to be hookers in the lobby! All in all, a horrible end to a fairy tale vacation in Italy. We both wished we had stayed in Sorrento and just gotten up three hours earlier in the morning!

... surviving. Also much smaller than Pompeii, I was able to explore most of these ruins in an afternoon, including a brief peek into the still-underground Palaestra, in which was found a large and intricate floor mosaic. Having explored most of the ruins I left, admiring an incredible sunset over the Mediterranean. I returned to Naples and, having organised a Couchsurfing host I took my bags, met and had dinner with Tamara, who was heading to Australia the following week.
