While it may not quite have the reputation of Florence and Rome, Italy’s third-largest city has plenty to rival its more touristy neighbors in the culture and culinary stakes – Naples is the home of the country’s best pizza, after all. Its historic center is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site, which is home to a number of archaeology and art museums. Housed in its own 17th-century building, Hotel Palazzo Turchini retains its historic nature with a flair for elegant design. Traditional furniture brightens up the lobby and bar areas of this ancient conservatory, while modern conveniences, including flat-screen TVs and complimentary Wi-Fi, update the 27 guest rooms to keep you well-connected. Breakfast and a post-sightseeing espresso or cocktail can also be enjoyed on the roof terrace, so you can take in more marvelous city views.
How to Get There
We stayed in the hotel for 4 nights during our trip to Italy. Hotel staff is very nice and accomodating. Food is also good. But there are few things which can't be ignored. Like the wifi was not working in most of the hotel. Also a word of caution, dont eat anything in the room coz there are alot of ants waiting to come out.
Otherwise our experience with the hotel was good.
Quite literally the worst hotel experience of my life. My GF and I stayed here for 2 nights between 13-15Aug 2018. On the last morning after breakfast we checked out and asked the reception if they could safely store our luggage so we could go and do some last minute site seeing - The front desk employee said no problem and we left the bags with him - Mr I**o. I was shocked when I returned to realise that my laptop had been stolen from my bag!!! FROM THE HOTEL SAFE STORAGE AREA! when I told the same receptionist he refused to take responsibility and simply said the laptop must not have been in the bag in the first place! I had to go to the police station myself with ZERO assistance from the hotel and fill in the usual reports. I brought the police to the hotel and they were shocked to realise that their safe storage was in AN UNLIT BAR AREA open to the general guests and staff! with NO CCTV. The police advised me to get a lawyer on the case which I have done and that it was possible that someone from the hotel staff probably stole the laptop. We had to leave as we had a train to catch but the hotel didn't make any effort to compensate or sympathise with my situation. I emailed the general manager a few days later and they gave zero response. I never write these reviews BUT PLEASE BE CAREFUL IF YOU ARE STAYING IN THIS HOTEL AND DO NOT TRUST THE STAFF FOR ONE SECOND AS YOU COULD BE AS UNLUCKY AS ME AND LOSE A LIFESTIMES WORTH OF INFORMATION WHICH I DID - BEWARE !
Front Desk was very helpful and efficient (Paolo, and another gentleman I can't remember his name) were fantastic. Breakfast was wonderful as well. We had a small dark room overlooking the elevator shaft when we stayed 1 week, then a beautiful room with big windows overlooking Via Medina when we came back for 1 night before flying home to the US. I wish it were reversed, but never mind, we were out all day anyway. The housekeeping service was very good also. We will hopefully return again to Naples in the near future and stay with you again. Hopefully we get the room with the window over Via Medina. Many thanks again!
The hotel was well appointed for the Metro and easy access to the port and tourist attractions. The room allocated to us however did not meet our expectations. Our reservation itinerary described a classic double room with city or patio view. The view from our bedroom window, photos attached, was of the external air shaft and the lift on the ground floor below. Our room was on the first floor accessible only by stairs. We checked online that other rooms were still available but were told by the duty manager that we hadn't requested a view and therefore we weren't allocated one. For this we paid £157 for one night 175Euro. This was not a four star experience
This hotel is perfectly comfortable and everything worked well. It's a little out of the way in terms of a lot that Naples has to offer - having said that it's readily accessible to the Galeria Umberto I and the shopping in that area. It's also close to the funicular rail terminus. Where it lacks is in terms of proximity to the heart of the City with the original Roman and medieval influences.
