City center crash pad with a 19th-century façade and a rooftop restaurant overlooking Mount Vesuvius
Behind its 19th-century façade, a sense of Italianate tranquility pervades the 89-room Una Hotel Napoli. Its location off Piazza Garibaldi means you’re close to Naples’s top sites, like Castel Capuano and the Duomo, and when you’re ready to explore beyond the city limits to Pompeii or Sorrento, the train station is less than a five-minute walk away. Guestrooms feature colors that reflect the local geography, with warm terra-cotta tones and shades of Pompeii red. Some rooms feature sections of the building’s original walls which were revealed during a thoughtful restoration project. The rooftop restaurant serves traditional Neapolitan dishes and regional wines, and the views are remarkable. From most tables you can see the city’s winding streets stretching toward the coastline and the imposing silhouette of Mount Vesuvius in the distance.
In the Area
Take one of the city’s funicular trains up the hill of Vómero — easy to use and more fun than negotiating the city’s steeper streets on foot. There’s a range of world-class museums in town, including the Museo Archeologico Nazionale, which houses one of the planet’s most stunning archeological collections and is within a 20-minute walk from the hotel. Sample Neapolitan dishes from authentic 17th-century recipes at La Cantina del Sole in the Spaccanapoli district. Hydrofoils and ferries provide bay tours and daytrips to the nearby islands of Capri, Procida and Ischia.
How to Get There
The hotel is in a very convenient location. Walking distance from the train station and quite near by the airport by car.
The staff is very kind and supportive. The single room is not so big but it is very nice and it has everything you need. The room is very well furnished.
It’s just a bit noisy because it faces the square where there are still works in progress. Breakfast is good and the bar terrace offers a very nice view.
I booked a single room for 3 nights including breakfast. Check in was excellent, the room was the biggest single I have ever been, my request of high floor was given. Breakfast is also amazing with lots of options.
Very unacommodating hotel for a four star hotel. Bathrooms very dirty and badly maintained. Mold in grout and limescale build up in every nook and corner around the shower. They offered us a different room, where it was the same. This was after a strange incident with the cab driver who followed us into the hotel in a harassing and threatening manner; at the reception the two receptionist ladies did absolutely nothing to protect their guests right in front of them. The cab driver had started driving when one of us was still half out of the car, and went into one way roads from the wrong side. So when we made a picture of the cab number from the outside, the cabby followed us into the hotel. The cabby demanded that we would delete the picture in Italian from the receptionists. They just let him talk and talk without asking him leave. We asked him several times to leave but the receptionists just let him continue his aggressive ranting right next to us even though we were clearly shocked and affected by his behaviour. Their English was also very limited, which did not help us receive any explanation or service related to the issues we faced. Moreover, the breakfast was ok’ish, although the ham this morning had a foul smell and was not good anymore. I will never return to una hotels. All in all felt unsafe and not clean in their hotel!
I seem to recall reading somewhere this is a four-star hotel. It was nice, but I'm not sure how this hotel received that rating as it was average in my opinion. We entered Naples in a rental car, so I was quite stressed as they do not appear to have traffic laws. We finally got to the hotel and approached the counter. Two males at the desk ignored us for a good minute. Too busy I guess to even greet us. I thought that was pretty strange. We got our room key and help with our luggage. The room was quite nice, and had a very large bathroom with a fabulous shower. My mother is a smoker and went to the rooftop bar to have a cigarette; however, when we went up just a little while later, we were told we needed to order something to stay up there. What?? No other place to smoke but outside the hotel which is NOT SAFE. So, we went back to the room, opened the windows, and what do we see but two thieves who had just stolen someone's bags and were rummaging through them. We could not believe our eyes. Right outside. But, this is a review of the hotel, not the surrounding area, right? I've seen pictures of Naples that look very beautiful, and this hotel is not located there. We had to leave too early to enjoy the breakfast, so I cannot attest to that. There was a little sign saying you could have a selection of pillows, so I called the front desk and asked for a down one. Nope, didn't have any left. The room was clean, and had all the usual amenities, but I was not impressed overall.
When I next go back to Naples, I will definitely stay at the UNA Hotel. It is so well located to explore Naples and beyond as well as offering a very relaxing stay! It also has all the mod-cons such as a fridge, safe, and hairdryer.
Windows also seem to be sound-proofed so that you are not bothered from the never-ending flow of loud Naples traffic.
Breakfast is served on a roof-top terasse providing stunning views of old Naples! It is a fantastic way to start your day!
I can only highly recommend this hotel!
