Hotel is in the Centro Storico of Naples, great to see everything!

The hotel was smack bang in the middle of old Naples. Great you were right amongst the real Neapolitans! The hotel was very clean, the rooms were enormous with very high ceilings. Inside it was all brand new. The bathroom was brand new, the décor was very modern. You could help yourself to coffee and tea near the reception area. We were near that famous street with all the most delicious food you could eat. We were centrally located & close to everything. Naples is a very interesting city & the Neapolitans very nice, friendly & helpful people. We loved all those lanes & little streets that you could only walk through or go with your vespa!
Neapel is great but next time another hotel

Reception was always closed. We have staied there for 7 nights and have seen the owner just by the check in. It means in case of any issues(and we had some) nobody helps you. It is a very loud street and due to the badly isolated windows we slept very badly. Location is is good. But we have expected some more service for this price. No WiFi. No telephone connection. Sledgy floor in the bathroom. Just 1 towel for 2 persons. So next time we will take anover hotel. There is a huge choice of b&b in the center. Neapel is a great city!

Ignore the street address. These digs, in an old palazzo, are wonderful, with sixteen foot high ceilings, a charming courtyard, and clean, up to date rooms with excellent AC and wi five, and they place you smack in the romantic Spaccanapoli district the historic core of Napoli. You are steps away from the Duomo and Pio Monte della Miseracordia, and a short walk from the world famous archaeology museum. The best pizza in the world, Gino Sorbillos, is three minutes away. Best of all, you'll be in the middle of a real Neapolitan neighborhood, not a tourist suburb.
Hotel Soggiorno Paradiso, how ironic!

I think the owner was feeling devilishly ironic when he/she chose the name. This b&b was hell! The worst place we've ever stayed in!
I always make an effort to speak Italian when I go to Italy, simply because I feel it's really rude to expect people in a different country to speak English. Usually, this is received very well, but here, there was not even a slight recognition. The woman at reception is horrible, never smiling, just about saying hello in the morning and always talking with the utter disdain/annoyance. Why the hell do they force customers to go and ask for the breakfast ticket every morning if it's such an inconvenience?! We even had to beg to have some more toilet paper in our room one day!
Breakfast, as many people have said, is very light. The b&b itself is very well situated, it is true Naples. We were a bit surprised when we arrived by the hole in the wall as we called it, but we thought it added to the charm.
I wish we had read the other travellers' reviews before we booked this place... Probably our worst decision ever.

This was officially the worst B&B I have ever stayed in, we stayed for 3 nights at the start of our 10 day holiday in Italy. We was a little worried about staying in Naples anyway as we had heard bad things about it being dirty and violent but we were determined to go and experience it for ourselves before we moved onto Sorrento and Rome. The first night we arrived the taxi driver dropped us off at the bottom of a narrow street and gestured that the hotel was that way. We felt quite unsafe walking through dark,narrow alleyways with our suitcases being two young women but we eventually found it. It is situated in the residential old town part of Naples and we were surrounded by the locals who luckily helped us get into the hotel as we didn't know the number for the intercom to the hotel. The man working at the hotel didn't speak English so it was very hard communicating with him, after we had dragged our suitcases up 3 flights of stairs we were shown to our (tiny) room, very basic which reflects in the price. We had asked for twin beds and was given a double bed we tried to explain this to the man but he didn't understand so we just made do with the double. The shower was really just a small trickle of water. Breakfast was at a cafe around the corner where the people working there didn't speak English, so very hard trying to communicate. It consisted of one pastry and a cup of tea or coffee. That's it! So my advice is don't bother go buy beakfast elsewhere. Trying to get information from the staff was pointless as they didn't speak much English, I found this to be true for most the people we met in Naples. The building the hotel is in was billed as traditional and baroque, in truth it was covered in graffiti and in need of a lick of paint it was also shared with the local people. Our experience of Naples as a whole was not enjoyable, the people drive like maniacs even at pedestrian crossings they won't stop for you, it was dirty and smelly the buildings are run down even the beautiful churches were borded up and over grown with weeds.we felt quite unsafe walking around at night time so we made sure we was back at the hotel before dark. Good points were that it was cheap to eat for a pizza the average price was 2 Euros. The archaeological museum is very good also.
My advice would be if you have to stay in Naples stay in the new town area and don't stay for long! And defifnitely don't stay at the Soggiorno Paradiso!
