I had no idea about the hotel when i booked for a trip to Naples last December. It looked nice, but is always difficult to get the feeling. But in this case, i have to admit that everything ran smooth. I think i can say the price worthed it, because my room was in the 9th floor, and facing the...

For our sojourn in Naples, my wife and I wanted to indulge ourselves and enjoy the beautiful Napoli panorama, that’s why we booked a room with the view at RC Hotel for 4 nights. Thankfully, the city government has elected to make the road in front of the hotel strictly a pedestrian area, I remember when it was like an...

We chose the Royal Continental for its excellent position, but were very happy with all aspects of our stay. The hotel designed by famous Italian architect Gio Ponti, is situated in a prime location on the seafront opposite Castel dell'Ovo. Within a very short taxi ride or present stroll from the ferry terminal. From here you can head out to...

The hotel was notified I had a 10 hr flight delay, this needed to be communicated to the friend I was meeting at the hotel and I also needed a pick up from the airport. I was delighted to see the driver at 2300 who took me inside the hotel lobby and directly to registration - they took "good care...

Facing the sea an astonishing view and at walking distance of quite some very good restaurants. Physical structure and hotel rooms are dated and really needs a refurbishing. Air conditioning was “locked” on a heat mode that not allows a comfortable sleep time (I am glad that is was on winter time and opening the windows fix it, at a...

The location and the view are amazing, in front of the Castel dell'Ovo and Via Caracciolo... wow! The rooms are large, clean and well equipped, the service is kind and professional. Wonderful breakfast (included). Probably is not a 'fascinating' hotel but it is really well organized and perfect for a great stay in one of the best locations of Naples....

We have chosen this Hotel because it is both in front of the sea and Castell dell'Ovo, and because it is 10 minutes walk far from Piazza Plebiscito and Via Toledo. Having a sea-front room really deserves the price. Breackfast is great, with napoletans "sfogliatelle" and good espresso. The staff was alert and caring in fixing any problem we had....

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
