Hotel Barbato4.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
I have friends in the area within walking distance of the Barbato so it was perfect for our use. My girlfriend and I thought it was just fine but basic. Very clean and spacious room. We had a 3rd floor room with a window that opened onto Via Secondiano. Noisy with traffic and church bells but we it did not bother us. Actually quite charming to see and hear the lively local folks. Breakfast was basic coffee/pastries but sufficient. Parking for only a few cars in the hotel courtyard. The young man working the desk was able to move some cars around and keep us there vs parking down the street. This area of Naples can "appear" a little sketchy but I lived in this area for 2 years during my time in the US Navy at the airport and found it very safe. A few local small restaurants nearby but all the touristy places several miles away. Hey, for 45 euros a steal.
The hotel is located in a suburb. We arrived with a car, and even though there is space for only 3 cars and there were already 4 cars parked in the courtyard, they managed to squeeze our car in which was a mega relief, that we did not have to worry about it, so that was a big plus! They gave us a room with a small balcony which was nice to have and the interior of the room is really nice and clean, as well as the bathroom. The street in front of the hotel is very busy and noisy so you might have an issue with that if you are a light sleeper. We did not mind, and the sound isolation is pretty good when you close the balcony door. All the staff we ran into was nice and helpful except for 2 cleaning ladies which were in the breakfast area in the morning. Not sure what their job is there because they completely ignored us and were playing with the TV remote trying to get some music channels to work. In the end, they shut the TV down and left without ever helping us or saying hello or goodbye. They left some dirty tables, they never offered any coffee or anything to us, there were things missing from the table and we tried to ask them if they could re-fill the juice but they just looked away and ignored us, were too busy talking to each other. They spoke Italian, so did we, so not understanding us could not be the reason. Like I said, everyone else was really nice, so I'm not sure what their problem is. WiFi works in public areas, and it's OK. Our room was close to the lobby so we got some signal there, but do not expect a connection all over the hotel, most of the rooms do not have it. Overall, we felt that this hotel was a good choice, and we would return again because it's good value for money for the price we paid. However, do not make the mistake of walking around too much because the area is quite dodgy. We returned from the city with the metro and decided to walk to the hotel, it was about half an hour to walk which we expected cause we saw the distance on the map but the problem was that we did not feel safe, the area is quite dark and full of weird streets and weird people on the streets, and we would not do this walk again. The hotel itself is OK, but do not walk around it too much, we'd take a taxi next time. Napoli is great, we spent only one day there which is not enough, so we will likely return.
This hotel is ok. It isn't very close to the city centre which on the one hand is a good thing but makes it expensive getting taxis to and from the hotel. you can get a few buses which is ok during the day, but not so good in the evening. It is quite a long way from the train station about 25 euros to the station. The rooms are ok a bit dated. The breakfast is basic. The staff are relatively friendly and helpful. So not bad overall. Don't think I would stay here again? Maybe if we flew to Naples and were stopping for a night on our way to another destination possibly?
Let me start with the positives of this hotel..... The receptionists are incredibly sweet and welcoming. We had a little trouble with our reservation (because of Expedia) and Jessica was so patient and accommodating. The little coffee shop attached to the hotel has wonderful staff as well. The room is comfortable but lacks tremendously. The wifi, breakfast and cleaning staff is bad. Breakfast consists of pastries. They do not accommodate anything for American tourists (outlet adapters, English speaking staff, Americanized breakfast). No cups or ice machines, no plates (if you needed to bring food back to the room), no microwave. In the amenities of the hotel it states they offer laundry service, which they do not. So make sure you pack accordingly. The location of the hotel is very close to the airport but is not....I repeat...NOT tourist friendly. AT ALL. Barely anybody speaks English around the hotel. People are pretty darn rude as well. The overall area is not very pleasant with a lot of failed businesses and a lot of the same businesses around. No real souvenirs to be found. You have to travel to get something good. There seems to be a problem with the collection is garbage on Italy (we got that from the news and we saw it as well) so the local streets are pretty trashed. Also, smoking seems to be the local's pastime. It's rarely a breathe of fresh air. With that being said, there are a few great places to eat around here that are in walking distance. There are numerous fruit stands that are opened daily and provide amazing variety and fresh fruit and vegetables. That is a must if you're ever in this area.
B&B very nice hotel to use as a base . You have to pay for tourist tax , 1 euro per star per person per day of stay . Transport tickets can be bought at Tobacco shops or at Train stations , make sure you check internet on tariffs before because it is a bit complicated haha ! Also learn some basic Italian as not many people speak English . Most seem very friendly too. The culture here is very different and it grows on you day by day . Enjoy . Michael.
The hotel room is comfortable. Not the best wifi in the rooms which was a bummer. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was horrible. The location of this hotel is terrible. About 20-30 minutes from the water - No dinning close by and everything is rundown and there's trash everywhere. Because of location I would not recommend this hotel.
The room was of very high standard with nice and clean bathroom. Hotel staff was very helpfull and polite. On the reception they speak English quite good. Also the elevator is a big plus. I have two "buts": 1. wi-fi is almost unavailable in the room, works only in the hall; 2. the noise from the street is unbearable (hotel is located on the crowded street) even at night. And three words about Naples: dirty, loud and smelly.
Minus: Location - windows are located to the main street - really big noise. If you leave at 6.30 - you dont get a breakfast. Wifi is not working good, I could not find the network at all. There is no fridge (4 stars hotel) Plus: Free parking, location near the airport, friendly staff. Airy and clean room, A/C.
I enjoyed very much the hotel, very cosy and comfortable and great personal! Incredible nice and friendly neighbourhood! Congratulations! I plan to stay there every time I go to Naples and I recomend it to all my friends.
Because of the location maybe not the best hotel if you go sightseeing, however, it is very close to the airport. The staff is very nice, helpful and speaks good English. The hotel has its very small private parking but you need to book it in advance and pay 5 EUR/day. Tasty pizzeria, few supermarkets, cafeteria located nearby. Clean, cosy rooms with comfortable bed. Only small range of products for breakfast (sweets only). The neighbourhod is not so bad...at least not scary and not so many litter around.
