Charming Naples hotel with good breakfast?

Jump to last reply

Firstly, let me preface this request by saying that I have already pored over booking.com, Trip Advisor, Venere and my printed Fodor's guidebook for Naples - I know many people are too lazy to even start looking on their own, and the posters here are rightfully quick to recommend they start there!

My issue is that I am looking for something quite specific, and have particular questions that I hope the wonderfully helpful Fodorite crew can help me with!

So, here's the story. We will be in Naples in July for the last night of our two-week trip to Italy. We arrive in Naples around lunch time, and then our flight home leaves the airport at 12:15pm the next day. Our Naples night is also our 5th anniversary.

Our ideal place, then, is this:

- lovely breakfast, ideally with a view (but view not essential). The next morning, we'll have time for a good breakfast but not really much else, so we'd like it to be something worth lingering over
- would love to stay in the old town, to experience the "real Naples". So far we've only seen "sketchy Naples" near the train station, so this time even though we only have one day we'd like to get a better feel for the city. Water views would have been nice, but we'll just have come from an amazing place right on the water on the Amalfi coast, so we'll be a bit spoiled for sea views (if anything, a view over Naples AND the sea from a bit further back would be good, but don't feel the need to be right on the harbour - but at the same time we don't want to be way out of town and need to take a funicular to do anything).
- up to 200 EUR (flexible if the place is amazing, but Naples in general seems to have a lot of good options well below this - our amazing place near Amalfi is 190 EUR/night, so it would seem odd to need to pay more in Naples!)
- Can be hotel, inn or B&B, we don't mind - I do love the intimate feel of a really helpful B&B host, but


Places I'm already considering:
- Constantinapoli 104 - Lovely decor. A bit pricey, considering we won't really have time to enjoy the pool. Breakfast in the garden sounds nice.
- Hotel Palazzo Decumani - Well reviewed, but the decor is a bit boring (other than the fancy staircase, it looks like it could be a modern hotel anywhere in the world).
- Palazzo Alabardieri - very well reviewed, but doesn't really catch my eye for some reason - ??
- B&B Grand Tour - very different from the others listed, but apparently super friendly and I like the balconies. Breakfast is apparently lacking, though!

While we're at it, if anyone has recommendations for a 5th anniversary dinner, I'd love to hear those too!

Thanks so much in advance!
