  • Originally used as a market square and placed outside the city walls with the current appearance dating back to the rooms desired by Charles of Bourbon in the second half of ' 700. Nice House of Vanvitelli topped with 26 statues. The part of the square along via Pessina is occupied by a small garden, while on the right of the garden itself, a fastening of the House on this side of the square opens the remarkable Port'Alba, 1625 (area to be mobbed libraries). In the Center the statue of the great poet which gives its name to the square and here placed after the unification of Italy. Unfortunately in the middle there is also the metro access infrastructure that disturbs the harmony of the square but it's the price we pay for progress (although sometimes there's different ways to integrate modern and functional facilities in the city's historic fabric, creating the works in the style of the environment in which they are placed, or with the least invasive as possible). On the side of the square opposite the House is a 16th century Church Baroque interiors of San Domenico Soriano while at the corner of via Toledo is one of the major achievements of the Vaccaro: the Church of San Michele in Port'Alba. Being a large area mostly closed to traffic, the square hosts often stalls and various events.

  • A beautiful, open square that is the name of Dante Alighieri. We walked here in the evening (after 10 pm on Sunday) and it occurred to us that it is very quiet. This was of course very fine, so we could take a good look at the square. From the square you have a good overview on the many small alleys where you can. Besides the fact that it is an open square with a lot of overview (if so few people are), we found it for the rest not very special.

  • Well, we booked this place because we liked the location and we believed that there would be security 24/7. There are so many cases when people are robbed in Naples every single day, so it was important for us. Prior to our arrival the people form B&B also wrote to us it would not be problem to keep our luggage if we arrive before check in. On arrival there was a woman who let us in and who didn't speak a single word in English, she even couldn't understand what was "water" when was asked. The cost was 60 euro plus tax 2 euro per room with breakfast for one person. For this amount we could easily book an entire apartment through Airbnb or other web. In spite of such a high rate we didn't receive service we had expected. First of all, the B&B is a two bedroom apartment converted into 3 room B&B. Secondly, there is no any security in the building, the woman is present only during day time. Needless to say that when we arrived, our room was hot, as she didn't make any effort to switch on air-condition prior to our arrival. Moreover, she didn't informed us how the air-condition works and didn't provide us with the remote control for it. When we realized the air-condition didn't work she was already gone and no phone was answering. As a result, we had to spend first night in a hot room. In the morning, the breakfast is served only from 8!!! AM. When we asked to serve it earlier we were told it was not possible. Breakfast was OK, but there were no any fruits offered at all, although it was summer! There are 3 phone numbers are listed on this B&B website, but most of the time they don't answer. One number belongs to a man who speaks English but he was always busy when we sometimes reached him, saying he is in the sea... In fact, we had only very busy 2 days and we needed a proper communication, as we coudn't spend our time calling their numbers and looking for translation. The most terrible thing happened on the last day. We had very limited time - planned to see 3 museum, so we wanted to leave the luggage after our check out at about 8.30 AM. This woman who didn't speak any English didn't want to keep our luggage. We called many times to the man but he was in the see.... As a result, we had to change our plan. In the end, I wouldn't recommend to anyone to stay overnight in Naples in general, because it is probability of 99.9% that you will be robbed. We spent one and a half month in Italy, staying in the hotels and Airbnb (paying from $20 to $200 per night) and this was the only terrible experience we had during our stay. It applies not only to this B&B, but also to Naples. Someone stole our wallet but threw it away as there were only credit cards. We were lucky to get it back from the police. However, it was very nervous and we also lost some time again.
  • Very friendly owners and staff. Well presented and clean rooms.
  • Lovely. Gracious hosting, room cleaned daily. Overlooking Dante Piazza. Many mama's pushing stroller indicated family neighborhood, kids playing soccer on piazza. We feel safe and secure. Wifi is excellent. Breakfast supplied by staff is ample. Front room large, sunny w/ tall balcony doors. Shower ample hot water and pressure. Best thing is Carlos and Simone and all the wonderful good food and friendship they offer.
  • Very nice place with friendly hosts.
