I stayed there with my wife one night on 9 March. Sea view room in the old part of the hotel. We were in the new part last summer and have to say that the rooms are better. The gulf view is unique. Breakfast served with view on Via Partenope is priceless. One note: waiters in the breakfast area should...

The best thing about this hotel is the location directly on the promenade and close to Castel Dell' Ovo. The promenade gets busy with lots of people at sundown and there are lots of restaurants next to the hotel and at the Castel. You can walk to the ferry terminal from there also. If you want to go into the...

This is one of the best hotel around naples. Fantastic view from the rooms and rooms are so wide. Only problem is room service is very slow and lots of stuff doesnt understand english. This is a handicap for a 4 star hotel. Clean rooms but a little bit old furnished.

Clean and spacious, but oldish and somewhat worn. A number of things that irk, including a wifi that provides a max speed of 512 kb, even if you pay 10 € extra, which is ridiculous in 2017. When I plugged into the electrical socket, the lighting in the room started to quiver. The fitness room is spartan. All in all,...

This is the second time i've visited Naples but first time to this hotel. Without doubt, the location of this hotel is perfect whatever time of year you go to Naples. However, there were a few things I found disappointing about this hotel. The room itself was average but what I found even more surprising for a 4* hotel were...

Our room had a balcony where you can view the Bay of Naples and Vesuvius. Out of the front door are a string of great restaurants along the water, with wonderful food and service. There are many taxis right in front of the hotel that can take you within minutes to any or the beautiful sites of the cities. I...

I stayed here for a series of meetings over five days. The hotel is well laid out and nicely furnished. The staff went out of their way to be helpful. The views from the spacious bayside bedrooms and the dining room were excellent, featuring the Castel dell'Ovo and Capri. The breakfast buffet was perfectly adequate and lunches for our group...

The hotel has an amazing location right on the sea front in Naples, and the staff could not have been more attentive. But, inside this hotel could be anywhere in Europe. It has a sort of late-1970s retro feel to it and lacks any kind of character. The rooms are comfortable but it is a veritable rabbit warren with endless...

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
