Stayed here for 3 nights a few years ago and the view is a great seaside location. There are outdoor restaurants on the block and you are walking distance to the shopping areas. Room are old fashion and you have to love the Bede.

The hotel is in a good seaside location and has a big, corporate feel and responsive, professional staff. We had a sea view room and it was big and modern with a wall of windows/doors facing the sea and a small balcony. The straight-on view of the castle was wonderful from sunrise to sunset!

We booked a Gio Ponte junior suite and hit the jackpot with it. The Gio Ponte floor is the first floor, the junior suite was a corner suite with a huge terrace facing Capri and the sea and there was an additional larger balcony facing the side street that we did not use for understandable reasons. We discovered the work... More

We booked this hotel for our honeymoon, due to the location and views. We opted for a deluxe room purely for the beautiful shots of spacious balconies with outdoor seating looking out over the castle and across to Vesuvius. Our room was spacious and perfectly adequate for our needs. It needed a little attention, and I would not have classified... More

Phenomenal location overlooking the bay. Breakfast was a very nice selection of hot and cold buffet. Room was slightly dated but the views made up for it. Near restaurants, shops, wonderful gelato next door.

it is a very nicely located hotel with a breathtaking view. However rooms we had were really very old and lacking obvious maintenance services such as electrical sockets, painting of walls, very used and old carpets.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Four stars for the Hotel Royal Continental, a hotel on the seafront promenade of Naples with a fascinating past, rebuilt in 1955 by Ferdinando Chiaromonte where once stood the Grand Hotel Royal des Etrangers . Today it is known as a structure of great prestige framed by the extraordinary beauty of the Bay of Naples. Large common areas , multiple meeting spaces , picturesque corners of relaxation, the Royal Continental sparkles elegantly with vintage charm thanks to the interiors designed by Gio Ponti , one of the greatest architects of the twentieth century. The furniture too was designed by him combined with designs by young architects of his choice . All 397 rooms, of which most have large windows and a balcony facing the breathtaking view of the Gulf, are spacious and very bright. On the Floor Museum Gio Ponti you can stay in one of the 24 rooms with wooden furnishings and fixtures designed specifically for the Hotel by Ponti. Suspended furniture, three-drawer chests with feet, and magazine racks and lamps in satin brass integrated into headboards from briar have made the history of Italian design. In stunning New York style, the Roof on the tenth floor, from which the beautiful view of the ancient Borgo Marinari and the legendary Castel dell'Ovo can be enjoyed, presents the one of a kind sea-water pool designed by Gio Ponti, published in 1954 on the cover of Domus. Guests are offered the solarium, outdoor bar, Fitness Center, massages booked in advance and two exclusive restaurants with spectacular panoramic views that stretch from the Vesuvius to the hill of Posillipo and the island of Capri. Breakfast served by the sea, in addition to the buffet which offers freshly baked pastries by Hotel Royal Continental, including oven fresh Neapolitan sfogliatelle, pastry horns. Location of reference for events and meetings, the Royal Continental is a well known Conference Center of primary importance in the national scene. Equipped with the most modern equipment and complimentary Wi-Fi, the Conference Center is characterized by its many meeting rooms with natural light and sea views. An exceptional location for large or small events thanks to its Auditorium setaing 530, its 16 Meeting rooms, 13 business suites and exhibition space, more than 200 sqm large. Pets up to 10 kg are allowed with an extra cost of 20 euros per stay. Located in one of the liveliest and most dynamic areas of Naples, the Royal Continental is the ideal location for living and exploring the city, within walking distance from shopping streets and the main local attractions, 10 minutes walk from Piazza Plebiscito and the Royal Palace. Furthermore, it is a 7 minutes drive to the harbour for ferry connections, 10 minutes to the Central Station and 20 to the International Airport. Not just a hotel but the real meeting point in the city, with its numerous events, food and wine tasting events, exhibitions, parties and aperitifs. ... more   less
