Wycoller, with it’s ruined hall and ancient bridges, is a fantastic day out for the whole family. Believed to date back to the tenth century Wycoller was virtually abandoned as the weavers left to work in the nearby mills during the industrial revolution.
Naples Italy | Some of the places we’ve stayed and liked!
Staying in Naples, Italy
Being one of the most visited cities in Italy, Naples has hundreds of accommodation options for you to choose ranging from the most lavish hotels to the budget beds and everything in between. In this post I’m going to tell you about some of the places we’ve stayed and the reasons why you should consider them too.
B & B Monseratto – Naples
The first on my list is B & B Monseratto. We found this gorgeous B & B after accidentally (yes accidentally) landing in Naples without booking any accommodation first and it was an absolute delight to stay here.
Francesca, the owner, is extremely helpful and is invested in making sure you have a wonderful stay. We stayed in the double room with a small balcony and views over the harbour, which, on a morning, was a treat.
Breakfast was included and could either be delivered to the apartment or you could take it in a local cafe on the next street. You have to try the Neapolitan speciality, the Baba. Baba’s are delicious sponge cakes soaked in a sticky, citrus-scented boozy syrup and very much a local delicacy.
The B & B is extremely central and only a street away from the Metro Station Universita and an abundance of restaurants and cafe’s. Really excellent location for much of Naples and reasonably priced too. This would be my Number 1 choice when we go back to Naples.
Lovely bright airy room, great wifi, great breakfast, gorgeous bathroom, balcony.
B & B Terrazza Duomo
The next residence on my list is the one we stayed in most recently when we came over to Naples in February 2020. The B & B Terrazza Duomo is ideal if you’re on a strict budget and don’t want to choose a hostel.
Cira is your host and although she speaks no languages she relies on her iPad translator to give you the information required for your stay and is really enthusiastic about making sure you have all the sights of Naples on your to-do list.
The room was basic with an opening out onto a large terrace which is shared with the owner and the occupant of the only other room in the residence.
Breakfast was included and was an array of fruits, breads, yoghurts and a toasted cheese and ham sandwich all prepared fresh by Cira.
This B & B again was really central, just down the street from the Duomo Cathedral and right next to the start of the Via dei Tribunali which is a street that is filled with history and takes you right into he heart of the old town. If you’re on a budget then this is the one to choose.
Good breakfast, Centrally located, Terraced Garden, Cheap, Close to the central train statio
Hostel of the Sun – Naples
This is another budget friendly place, Hostel of the Sun, and we stayed here a few years ago for a couple of nights on our first visit to Naples
This residence was popular with younger backpackers and had all that we needed which was a clean room, clean bathroom and a simple breakfast. It seems to be a popular hostel in Naples and gets some good reviews.
If you need somewhere cheap, simple and fairly central then this would work for you. It is located near the port and only a street away from some fantastic restaurants and cafes.
The best bits
Next to Municipio Metro station means you can get anywhere across Naples really easily. Cheap, clean, good wifi, good location, comfortable bed
Apartment Mihi – Vico Equense
Next I want to take you out of the city slightly to a little town just south of Naples called Vico Equense. We spent a couple of nights here at the end of a previous trip to Italy as we wanted somewhere we could relax and swim in the sea before flying home from.
We stayed at Apta Mihi B&B which was one of the only B & B’s available when we decided to visit. This was extremely basic but clean and the owners were very friendly and accommodating.
The B & B was run by an Indian woman and her son and it was basically rooms within their home, that they let out.
The breakfast was good and they were really central in this small town. Cheap, clean, good wifi, good location, welcome drinks or drinks for the welcome.
Apartment Le Grand Bleu
Just a 10-minute walk from the beaches, Le Grand Bleu is a residence in the centre of Procida Island.
A really lovely, light and airy apartment with a balcony, air conditioning, access to a roof terrace and a small kitchenette. Having the cooker meant we could buy from the local deli and make packed lunches or have dinner at home.
Location, roof terrace, kitchenette, good wifi, large room
I hope you enjoy Naples and if you do stay in one of these places let me know what you think. Happy Travelling!
