We were in the junior suite with garden patio, which was really lovely. Il Convento staff were helpful. The breakfast was fine - nothing too surprising for our third hotel stay in Italy. OVerall, Il Convento is a gem! We were in Naples for sightseeing, and this left much to be desired. I suggest staying at Il Convento if you want to be in the city near places to eat and shop, but plan to get out of town for sightseeing.

The hotel itself was perfect with its location and nicely decorated rooms which are appealing especially women. Only thing I couldn't stand was noise from outside. The doors of the window was not helpful to shut the noise and I couldn't sleep enough during my stay. I really hope the hotel solve the problem.

Il Convento is perfect in its class. Welcome and service are excellent and care and attention couldn't be better. Breakfast is still a bit strange in terms of what is offered, which includes tinned pineapple and cocktail sausages, fresh fruit would be better, but it is still good, the coffee is excellent. The area is very real, you are staying in an actual, living and working Neapolitan neighbourhood, if you want a standardised, neutral tourist hotel then maybe you should look elsewhere. The hotel is secure and we found the soundproofing more than adequate, even though we were only about 10 metres away from the convent, and, yes, they do ring the bell at 7am every morning. We have stayed here three times now and will stay again. Naples is a chaotic, wonderful city and Il Convento is perfectly placed, in all senses.

This is not a hotel that can justify charging 100 euros/night - essentially a souped-up bed and breakfast. They'v obviously put effort into modernising the rooms with air-conditioning etc and tried to make the common areas attractive, but the general appearance on arrival, the state of the area in which it's located and the appalling amount of noise both from the street and from neighbouring rooms make this a budget option at non-budget prices. NOT RECOMMENDED. Perhaps if you pay for one of the rooms at the top with a private terrace it would be acceptable, but you still have to negotiate filthy streets to get to it, and that's not ok for the price. A shame.

This hotel provides excellent value for money. Location is strategical, and provides a unique point of departure for exploring the real Napoli. Being in the heart of 'Quartieri Spagnoli', it puts you right in the heart of the thing. If you do not like being there, maybe you do not like Napoli at all. The only reservation is for the bells of the nearby chapel (which in itself is certainly worth seeing).

Nicely decorated hotel with a lovely floor for breakfast--one of the breakfast rooms doubles as a study with a computer that guests can use for internet access. Naples is a noisy place and the soundproofing is excellent--just make sure to close the shutters, glass doors and wooden panels over them (the difference is extraordinary!). There's a good restaurant nearby--Nennella. Easy walk to all attractions.

We stayed 2 nights in this hotel and were delighted with our room. The breakfast rooms are a bit small and we don't really like being seated on one long table with other persons in the morning.The hotel is situated in a very small road in the spanish quarters on Naples and is very "typical" with all the laundry hanging outside, but it is also a bit noisy!We highly recommend this hotelfor its excellent prices and perfect situation to visit Naples on foot.

Beautifully decorated hotel from the breakfast room, suite, to the internet room. Maria Chiara at the front desk, who spoke perfect english, was helpful and had information about the area. Just off Via Toledo and close to the Teatro San Carlo, Galleria, waterfront, even Brandi pizzeria. We dined at a nearby restaurant Il Gobetto twice, well worth trying if you stay here. Naples a little overwhelming after the calmness of the Amalfi coast and Capri, so I would advise going to Naples first and seeing the museums and excursions to Pompei and Vesuvius, then relaxing at a quieter resort area. Naples may be a little rough around the edges for some but I found it alive and stimulating. This is a real city unlike the artificial feeling of Venice which only seems to exist because of tourism. Prices in restaurants and shops alot cheaper than Roma or other cities in Italy we have visited. And the house wine superior as well. I would come back to Naples, more things to see but we ran out of time. The flea market was great as well and also close to Il Convento. See Naples and live.

We enjoyed our two night stay at Il Convento. This hotel is in a noisy, lively neighborhood but we were able to rest well. We enjoyed participating in a local festival (unexpected!) in the area during our stay. The hotel is centrally located and near many "must see" sites in Naples. We were comfortable in this hotel and felt safe. We stayed alert for crime in Naples as we had been warned but had no problems with pickpockets.

I don’t have much to say about the hotel, that others have not said in their reviews. In my opinion it was great. Our room had a small balcony that overlooked the street; the room was in excellent condition, the bathroom clean and very modern. The room was very confortable a 10 of 10 in my opinion. The staff in the hotel were very helpful and nice. The breakfast was the typical European buffet breakfast, very good. I will elaborate a little bit one the location of the hotel and how to get there, I know it would have help me out. The hotel is located two blocks west of Via Toledo on a very small street trafficked by mopeds and small cars. The hotel is 5 minutes away walking from Castel Nuovo (New Castle); which is the main terminal for the Sightseeing Buses (recommended). If you arrive by train to Naples (as I did), your hotel reservation (sent by venere.com) will say to take the Metro and get off on Via Toledo…. do NOT do this, that metro stop is still under construction and will not be working for another year!! We did take the metro and ended walking like 5 miles; but no biggie we are young and always up for adventure!!! So if you arrive by train, you have 2 alternatives: if you are not a very season traveler and have a lot of big suitcases you might want to take a taxi, they will charge you anything from $20 EU to $30 EU. However, if you are up to some adventure and have small easy to carry bags you can take the bus. If you take the bus, you need to get a ticket first at the train terminal ($1 EU each), then go out to the plaza (Piazza Garibaldi) and take bus R2. Get on the bus thru the back door (is the easiest with bags) and get confortable because is a 20 min trip. Keep you eyes open because you will need to get off at “Piazza Municipio” which would be to the right side of the bus. This piazza is diagonal to Castel Nuovo (to your left), is huge you can’t miss it! If you miss the stop do not panic, the bus will go one more stop and do a U-turn to he

What is the problem with those commentators who complain about noise? This is Naples!! It's streets are very narrow and it is a vibrant city and Convento in the heart of a working class area. Of course it is a little noisy it's part of what makes the city exciting. We were woken one morning by scooters, the bells of the neighbouring church and an itinerant accordian player playing "O Sole Mio"! God, I call that just about magical not something to complain about! The hotel is fine. The rooms bigger that most in its price range, the facilities good (apart from the dodgy shower it's true) and all the staff very friendly and helpful!! Breakfast is good. We'll definitely be back

We (my friend and I) loved the hotel and the location. Staff were helpful and accommodating. Rooms were clean. Decor was tasteful. Breakfast was very good. Shower was a puzzle--couldn't figure out how not to get water everywhere but the loo/bathroom was well equipped and very clean. Yes there was street noise, but you could shut it out by closing the doors to the balcony...but it's the old, winding streets with families on their balconies and flowers and local chapels, so I actually opened the window to all the activity and slept happily. I'm going back.

The room was extremely dark and when taking a shower you really are in the dark. Earplugs were available, not a good sign and the 2nd bed was a cot. No glasses in bathroom, towels were oversized napkins, and the tiniest soap imaginable. The courtyard was nice, but it was too cold to be able to use it. We stayed in all "3 Star" hotels in Italy and this was not even close to the other hotels. Breakfast was poor,and recommendations for restaurants were not existent, overall a poor value.

This is a lovely little spot in the middle of what can be a very lively city . . . nice staff, nice room. The neighborhood is a little noisy and, even with nice thick shutters, we used the earplugs they provided. They gave us a great restaurant recommendation just down the street where we enjoyed a long, lovely dinner. They also had a GREAT connection with a local, multilingual guide for tours of Pompeii.

My husband and I really liked this hotel. We ended up coming back to it after our three days in Sorrento to spend our last night at Il Convento before we returned to the United States. We liked the neighborhood setting most of all and felt as though we experienced a little of what it is like to live in Naples by staying there. The Spanish Quarter is very lively and colorful and noisy and we loved it. We never felt unsafe and we walked everywhere - to all the sites, churches, shopping areas, and even to and from dinner late at night. The staff was professional and very accomodating and the breakfast was fresh and plentiful - yogurt, fruit, cheese, breads, cereal, and cakes. The coffee was excellent. Naples is an intriguing city. There is so much to see and do, but it is easy to get sidetracked just experiencing the place and the people and the food. We didn't get to see it all. When we return, we will definitely stay at Il Convento. We miss the sounds of the quarter - the Vespas, the church bells, and the voices of the people living there echoing down the streets.

Nice little hotel that is basic but comfortable and well-kept. It is well situated in the Spanish area of Naples, which is the real Naples. Very close to the Via Toledo (shopping street) about 1 minute! The only little problem we have, was that our booked room (Suite with roofgarden) had a little mould problem, so they gave us another room (normal double room), which was was very nice, but we had to pay the price for the Suite. The suite is simular to the double rooms except for the roofgarden, which isn´t worth to pay more (maybe in summer). We are very contend with the hotel, but on our next stay we´ll book a normal double room!

We absolutely loved this charming little hotel. It's just a block or so off busy, vibrant Via Toledo...but once you close the beautiful door/windows, you can't hear a thing. The hotel is perhaps an 8-minute walk from the bus stop, harbor, Castel Nuovo, Teatro San Carlo & Palazzo Reale, and a 25 minute walk the other way to Archeological Museum. (And trust me, it's faster to walk than take a taxi due to the congestion!) We loved the location, and the staff couldn't have been friendlier or more helpful and accomodating. This hotel wasn't the cheapest of the 3 stars, but it was well worth every penny. We feel very fortunate to have had such lovely accomodations during our too brief stay in this exciting city, and we won't even bother looking for another place to stay on our next visit. This is our home away from home in Naples! We were pleasantly surprised by the prices of the minibar and bar drinks -- by far the cheapest of our stay (2 Euro for a beer!) And the bar, converted from the confessional, was so charming and cozy. It was a perfect place to flop for a drink after a long day sightseeing. The public areas were a little snug, not much room for many at one time, but that was ok. We were on our honeymoon and weren't really looking for companions (although the folks we did see were very friendly). We walked to the harbor and took the hydrofoil boat over to Capri for the afternoon (approx 22 Euro roundtrip per person). It took about 45 minutes and was very comfortable. The next day, we walked to the bus station, and took a 20 minute bus ride (approx 1 Euro each) to the train station. We caught a train to Pompeii and spent the day at the excavations... what a marvelous public transportation system the Italians have!! The gentleman at the front desk was so helpful: he spoke English beautifully. He marked our maps for us and was just so warm and welcoming. We only wish we could have spent more time at this lovely hotel.

The Hotel is located in the old town of Naples where the Spanish population used to live, narrow streets, bustling surroundings. The Hotel is close to the historical center of the town and therefore very conveniently located. The rooms are small, very clean and well equipped but the French bed was definitely too small for the two of us (and we are not overweighed). I recommend the hotel for everybody who wants to get a first impression of the town. For a longer vacation the premises might be too narrow.

We had a junior suite which housed 3 adults comfortably. The heat vent was under the 2 beds in the loft so it was extremely hot. Heat needed to be turned down or off which made downstairs w/double bed cold. Not much of an outside balcony. Also, hotel is in a noisy alley. We did not feel endangered in any way. Suite was quite dark--only the door opening onto balcony let in any light. Shower had great water pressure. Breakfast was not the best. Hotel staff was accommodating for the most part.

This is a great hotel in the middle of one of the more interesting parts of the city. Be it a little loud and hectic, you really get a sense of the local flavor by staying in this neighborhood. The staff was very helpful, and recommended a great restaurant around the corner. They were also able to help with many other questions we had and were very friendly. Our room was interesting, just like the pictures, maybe a little smaller than we expected but there was ample space for the two of us. There's a great little balcony to watch the locals zip by on their scooters and watch the laundry being hung. We had a great stay here and would recommend this hotel to others. This neighborhood is not for the fainthearted though! Full of excitement, and yes noise, but the doors do a good job of blocking most of it out. There's a decent breakfast too!

This was our second stay and il Convento is just as good as before. The staff are friendly and helpful, the rooms are good and while the choices of things for breakfast are still whimsical they are perfectly satisfactory. I've rated the surroundings as excellent, some will disagree, but this is a vibrant local area in a vibrant city , Naples isn't for the faint-hearted and il Convento provides a calm, secure space in a wonderfully chaotic city.

This hotel falls within the Spanish Quarter of Naples (immediately West of via Toledo). Although you will also be warned-off the area around the railway station, this area too (the "chessboard" of tiny run-down streets) is also not an ideal location for any but the most seasoned of travellers. That said, the hotel itself is of a very high standard and is both secure and comfortable.

This was an excellent hotel for our first stay in Naple, and placed us at the heart of the city, in easy reach of shops, restaurants & the maritime terminal. The rooms were delightful and the staff very friendly & helpful. The only slight disappointment was that the breakfasts were rather basic. However, we will certainly want to return, thank you!

We stayed here one night on our arrival in Italy. It was a simple room but perfectly adequate, quiet enough despite a fairly noisy street and the AC was good. The breakfast was fine, not a huge spread but again all that we needed. THe hotel is situated in the Spanish quarter which is full of narrow little streets and quite characterful. I would recommend this hotel for anyone not too bothered about a noisy street but happy to feel that they're in an authentic old city atmosphere. We loved it! From the hotel we walked all over Naples, it was ideally situated to explore the city in the half day that we had.

A very nice little hotel in the 'spanish district'. You go there to see the real Napoli... and you get it. A little noisy for the scooters, but it is the district. You can ask for good place to go in the neiborhood.

The hotel is confortable and very caracteristic. It is very nice renovated with cute details. The personnel is very friendly and helpfulness. Even if the area is very convinient for sightseeing, it is very rundown and very, very chaotic to reach with the car. But we never felt unsafe.

We enjoyed our stay. We liked the location and the neighborhood. We particularly liked sharing breakfast tables as this facilitated meeting other guests. One qualification - we arrived a day early and the next morning they changed our room, giving us a handicapped bathroom, which wasn't nearly as nice & the shower leaked all over the floor. They did this for the night we had reserved well in advance. Why?

Excellent features in room, roof terrace was great. Nice little touches throughout the hotel making it a really interesting place to stay. Croissants for breakfast were gorgeous! Really central, easy to get around.

The warmest welcoming we had ever since we started living in Italy. Spanish Quarter looks harassing to foreigners, but it is the real part of Naples. Since it was winter, we did not hear a lot of noise, feel any danger or anything, as quoted in other reviews. We stayed in a quad room with mezzanine. The beds upstairs are placed rather high. If people/children do not sleep still, it could cause some problem.

This hotel is a find. Wonderful building and accomodations I loved all the lights and the beautiful bathroom and Italian tile floors. The location was fantastic. The employees were the best! This hotel will be added to my short list of hotels that I "award" the highest recommendation to friends and family. I LOVED NAPOLI and I LOVED Hotel Il Convento!!!!

Il Convento is a marvelous hotel. It is located in Spagnoli which is a busy network of narrow streets and very much a lived in area full of local shops of all types as well as bars and restaurants. Spagnoli is not a wealthy part of town and has a poor reputation but we did not experience any problems, in any case it is just two streets from the Via Toledo which is a major thoroughfare and shopping street. The hotel is immaculate and the staff are the most friendly and helpful I have ever encountered. If you are looking for spacious common areas and very spacious rooms you will be disappointed but we found our room to be very well designed, plenty of room and the bathroom was excellent. Staying in this part of town gives you a different, positive, perspective on the city to staying in the larger, hotels or those away from the centre. If your idea of an ideal hotel is a Holiday Inn then Il Convento is not for you. The streets are noisy, espacially in the evenings when the local youth like to use them as racetracks for their mopeds but we found that the shutters were very effective. You still need to keep your eyes peeled for the Vespas when you step on the street. Our room was air conditioned so that you stepped into a cool, quiet and private space after a hard day on the streets. It's well located for transport, particularly the funiculars and Cumana and Circumphlegrea railways, and there is a new Metro station being built on Toledo.

At the end of our holidays we had a very nice stay at 'Il Convento'in Naples. The welcome was very warm and the given informations were very helpful. We met a lot of nice people from all over the world in one of the cosy breakfast-rooms to interchange experiences and further plans. The hotel's location is just perfect to explore Naples, but due to its position amidst the narrow napolitean lanes, you have to keep the windows closed at night.

The Hotel is in the middle of one of the poorest places in Naples, but we never felt threatened, and enjoyed the neopolitan atmosphere. The tight streets meant you had to dodge the occasional scooters!, but the friendliness of the hotel staff and local residents made our stay unforgetable. We will come back to Naples and Il Convento, no matter what people say.
