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
Spent a week with my family in Naples. This hotel is excellent. The staff are very helpful and courteous. Rooms are very spacious ( at least the one we had ) 2 double beds . Very clean and well equipped. It is 2 minutes away from the Metro, and less than 15 minutes away from sites like the 'Palazzo reale' and 'Piazza plebiscito' , 'Castel Nuovo' . It is sourrounded by restaurants, with a very good one right across the road ( Trattoria Medina ). It is 10 minutes away from 'Via Toledo' a long main street full of places to shop and eat. Breakfast is more than adequate, with a few cold cuts and fresh bread and toast. Also supplied a variety of cereal, Caprese salad, eggs on demand, and a huge variety of typical Naples sweets. Fresh fruit and also fruit salads. Espresso and Capuccino will be offered to you at the table. Highly recommended.
We spent a week in Naples with a 6 year old, we wanted a hotel which was central.
We got even more than what we were looking for. Lovely hotel. It is centrally located walking distance from Piazza Plebiscito, with a tube station just round the corner and good restaurants just a stone throw away. Rooms are clean, breakfast wonderful. Staff is helpful and child friendly. I Twisted my foot while site seeing. Once i asked for ice, it was brought straight to the room and they offered to bring more if i needed even during the night. I would return.
We chose this hotel as it was very central and seemed a good deal. When we arrived the hotel looked very small, in fact we did not notice where the entrance of the hotel was. Walking into the reception, it looked very clean and well maintained. We were greeted with a very warm reception. They were very helpful with the check in and also provided a lot of information.
The room itself was very small and didn’t resemble what was on the website. There was no natural light coming into the room. But it was very clean. We had to call the reception just to obtain the safe key which they brought up, no problem.
The hotel itself was very clean and all the staff were very helpful and extremely friendly. One in particular, Mario (picture below) in reception who helped us with our tours to Pompeii and Mount Vesuvius. As the first 2 days were very windy, a tour to Capri had to be postponed as the sea was very choppy but Mario was very honest to say that there was no point going out there if only for all boats to be cancelled on the return which would mean we will be stranded. Mario was fantastic, a perfect example of someone to represent the face of the company. Well done and thank you so much.
Breakfast was a bit disappointing, although we knew it was a continental style breakfast, there wasn’t much choice of cold meats. Just ham and salami and 2 types of cheese. There was however more choices of pastries and there was also cereal options. It was ok, it filled a hole I guess.
Would I return to this hotel? Probably not. Location was great but disappointed there was no natural light in the room and a bit disappointed with the breakfast choices.
Staff are excellent though and some good nearby restaurants and a supermarket.
Not saying it’s a bad hotel, just not for us.
We were here for 3 days. Great location- near the port and plenty of stores and restaurants. Staff is very kind and helpful. Rooms are well appointed and breakfast is included. On the 6th floor with a great view, it includes baked goods, yogurt and granola choices, meats and cheeses and great breads. Coffee, tea, and juices also.
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.
