Please Recommend a "cheap" hotel in Naples!!

I was wondering if anyone has any advice on a cheaper place to stay in naples.
I stayed in Parteno B&B twice, but it is over 100 euros a night, and I was hoping to stay well under that....also don't want to stay in the train station area.
Any advice much appreciated!!

Here's a coincidence - I have just this minute come off the Italy Graffiti Wall on Rick Steve's website & the top posting is a rave review of a cheap hotel in Naples!

Here's a link;


Hope this helps.

neddag: I travel "budget", but never feel as if I am missing anything. The hotel I have stayed at in Naples is "Le Fontane al Mare" located at Via Niccolò Tommaseo, 14 in the Chiaia area (beachfront of Napoli) Telephone #011-39-081-764-3811. It is across from the beachfront and Castel dell'Ovo, and next to the Villa Communale (lovely park, Naples Aquarium is there too). The hotel is actually up on the 5th floor of a public building and you pay 10c to ride the elevator up (or you can walk and get plenty of daily exercise!). It doesn't look like much from the outside, but the seaviews more than made up for the less-than-posh facade. Likewise, I felt very safe walking around the area at night to and from restaurants, cafes, etc. with my little child. Even went to the beach in the evening (across the street!) There is a great pizza restaurant next door with reasonable prices, as well as some terrific seafood places nearby. The room rates for a single is 60 euros, a double is 100 euros. All front-facing (ocean view rooms) have balconies and fantastic seaviews of the Bay of Naples and up towards Mergillina, Posillipo, etc.

Access to the hotel is via the #1 tram from Piazza Garibaldi (Napoli Centrale train station), there are stops in the adjacent Villa Communale, as well as the block over from the hotel.

We always stay at the Centro Turistico
It's right on Via Toledo and easy walk to the water, spaccanapoli, via chiaia area, docks to get ferries, etc. Very nice people. Simple rooms, but comfortable. We usually pay around 80 euro off season for a double. Ask for an inside room (with windows over looking the palazzo) since via toledo can be kind of noisy (kids, dogs, vespas- eventhough it's pedistrian only).
