Bed and Breakfast with a purpose
Posted Mar 19, 2015
This is a great place to stay. I can second what many reviewers have already written. This bed and breakfast is part of a larger project to preserve some of Naples’ sacred monuments and to improve a poor neighborhood. The Google Earth photo of this address shows a high-rise bridge above the property, not the property itself, which is on a street that is anything but bleak. Rather large rooms have the amenities of more expensive hotels–small fridge, hair dryer, heating and cooling, soundproof windows, free WiFi in both rooms and common areas, television (but all stations are in Italian except one in French)–plus kitchen privileges. Tiny bathrooms. Original art work throughout. There is a small library of novels and books on Naples in Italian and English (mostly). Although it’s a long walk to the nearest subway station, there are bus routes right outside the door and those take you to the metro. There is a taxi stand nearby (take the public elevator to get to it). Nearby eating options are basically limited to pizza, pasta, and Italian deli fare. Laundry nearby. Warmly recommended to everyone, but especially to budget travelers, and to people interested in art, archaeology, history, urban renewal, grass roots organizations, and Christianity.
