When visiting Naples…

In turns majestic and decaying, the rambling city of Naples is one of the most fascinating and bewitching in Italy.

It is the departure point for the Sorrento coast, the islands of Capri, Sardinia, Sicily and more besides.

It heaves with energy, creativity and vast multi-ethnic, multi-national crowds exploring its historical and archaeological treasures; shopping; selling; feasting…

If you want comfort without breaking the bank…

Visit the Santa Brigida boutique hotel, strategically placed 2 min. walk from Via Toledo and the Umberto I Gallery. Like many other Napolitan hotels, it is “hidden” inside a courtyard and occupies part of a floor of a period building. You take the lift to the 3rd
intents and purposes, a large apartment (the hotel has but 12 bedrooms) arranged as a small lobby, a reception area, a breakfast room, all off a main corridor.
You would be forgiven for thinking you’ve landed in a gallery: photo panels are cleverly used as partitions between the different areas, as window blinds and moving walls. An unusual coffee table at the reception room is built around a handgun with an extended trigger line.

The rooms are small but well-equipped and the bathrooms have power showers with their own massage jets.
The owners have made the most of the space, with a folding secretaire revealing a tea-making set, a minibar fridge and an intricate hanging space.

Breakfast is original, consisting of literally scores of taster-size dishes, all explained on a mini-tablette mounted by your table.
Breakfast is split into savoury and sweet and each has an extensive menu of small portions, including bean soup, a selection of salamis, stuffed aubergine, tiny pastries, fruit, yoghurts, chocolates, jams, honeys – really, too many to list all.

Service is good and unobtrusive but check-out is 10.30 am, so do factor that into your day.
Perfectly suitable for day shoppers, couples and business people for whom a central location is important.
