Hotel Vergilius-Billia4.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Went with a bunch of mates despite reviews the hotel is very clean and well located in the centre of Naples. Staff were friendly and the breakfast was decent though the eggs were weird. Only slight problem was all the rooms seemed to not have enough plugs but that’s a small problem really.
i have just got back from a 3 night stay in this hotel and against all the negative comments i really enjoyed my stay. The receptionist were all very helpfull and polite the hotel is well maintained and looks great. I had room 212 which was perfect for my stay, very clean, nice and modern bathroom. The room was serviced and cleaned daily no complaints at all!! Breakfast was ok with a good selection of ham,cheese, cornetto's and jam plus more.(dont expect full english) So overall i would give my stay at this hotel 8 out of 10. ps, the hotel is ideally located near the metro/main railway station. also the Airbus from the airport also stops at the station. DO NOT BE PUT OFF BY THE LOCALS JUST BE SENSIBLE WITH YOUR BELONGINGS AND YOU WILL SURVIVE NAPLES!!
This hotel was a huge disappointment. We left a night early as our room was dirty and the shower was filled with mold. The pictures posted on hotels.com are terribly deceiving - the rooms, the front desk, etc...look NOTHING like that. There was construction going on, on one of the floors, so perhaps they are hoping the rooms will soon look like that - but they do not right now. We ditched the $50 it cost for the second night and didn't look back. They should point out that you may not get an updated room when you are booking. The old rooms are gross! I refused to shower and get under the sheets - I slept fully clothed and showered when we got to the next hotel in Rome. GROSS!
I have never stayed in such an awful hotel in my life. We booked a Double Room NOT an Economy Double but our room was barely worthy of occupation let alone £168! See my photographs. The window didn't have any curtains AT ALL. the shower tray was cracked, leaking and filthy. The shower was black and mouldy, the toiletries already opened and used. The basin was dirty and the the floors sticky. The room smelled dreadful. The bed was old, creaky and the bedding inadequate. There were holes in the walls and the wall paper was coming off. When we complained we were treated with incredible rudeness and the receptionist snatched the invoice out of my hand ripping it in half! .We also fought to receive any compensation from Booking.com but the solution was unsatisfactory. We didn't stay to eat the breakfast because we were so angry that we left first thing in the morning. I can say though having looked at the breakfast buffet that again it bears absolutely no resemblance to the photographs. This hotel should be closed down for any number of reasons.
The only positive aspect of the hotel is its proximity to the city center.Dirty room and sheets. Tiny television. Little varied breakfast. No parking. The hotel has agreed with a parking lot. The prices are too much for this parking lot.The room was drenched. No mini-fridge in the room. Uncomfortable bed. Wifi isn't good at room. It's a joke that the hotel gets 4 stars.
Stayed at the Hotel Vergilius Billia three nights; it was our base whilst we discovered Naples. Location Location it is situated within walking distance to Naples train station and tube. Tube is the best way to get about in Naples. The area is slightly run down, graffiti and rubbish everywhere but this typical of Naples. Do not let this put you off staying at the hotel it is secure and the staff are friendly. Our room was large, clean and modern and had working air com. The reception staffs were ok but the restaurant team were the best and they looked after you. Enzo our waiter was great and gave helpful advice on Naples; Thanks Enzo you were a star. The food was the best experienced during our stay in Italy; the quality was good. The food and restaurant team give the hotel extra stars. The hotel price is far and I would stay again.
I stayed over for 3 days but i realized that the way reception people speak to guest...is pathtic....no manners of communication.....if any guest visit you then they need to deposit ID document without that nobody can meet to the lerson staying in the hotel...nowhere in world this type of request is placed in any hotel in world that to also on a day time...the way reception speaks is not showing any respect in communication...i will recommend not to book anytime for this hotel...they donot have even any feedback form probably they donot want to disclose their misbehaviour...horrible experience on staying in this hotel
The hotel is average and there is nothing really to complain. The service is friendly, only one really important thing for me (and all the coffelovers) is not ok, you get your coffe from en nespresso machine, wich does not make espressos. If you kindly ask for a real coffe, because a real machine is not far away you are redirected to the nespresso machine... For An italian hotel I do find this quiet disappointing.
The grand lobby gives a rather misleading impression of the rest of the hotel. Rooms are shabby, with cheap with aged furniture and well worn bathroom. On the plus side, it´s close to the central station and airport bus stop.
We booked this hotel for one night which was still too long in the hotel. The bedroom was awful; it was like a prison cell. The air conditioning leaked over our bed during the evening which we were not happy about. Most staff were friendly but not helpful. Brilliant location next to the station. That was the only plus point. Just be aware the photos on the website and the 4 stars do not represent what this hotel is actually like.
