This is a lovely flat of 2 double rooms (120smq), a confortable livingroom, one big bathroom with shower and bath + a small service bathroom , a full equipped kitchen over looking the lively and folkloristic neighborhood known as "Quartieri Spagnoli".
The flat is really quiet and very central at the same time, and provided with an additional iron gate that you close at night so it is very safe.
The apartment is elegantly furnished and composed of an entrance, a large bedroom (with double bed), a sitting room with a comfortable sofa bed, an adjoining sitting room with another sofa bed (single) and a sixth bed consists of a single bed folding (with wheels to be placed where you prefer). The kitchen is large and equipped with all appliances, a smaller bathroom with toilet and sink and another larger bathroom with shower and bath.
Bed linen and towels are always available new and sanitized.
In ten minutes walk through the typical narrow little street of Naples, resounding with vendors voices showing you all sort of merchandises, you will reach the main street Via Toledo, the Royal Palace and the San Carlo Theater. Everywhere around you will find typical restaurants, and nice pizzerias.
Do not be afraid to wander around the narrow streets of Naples, take few simple precautions ( do not carry too much money on you, do not show handbags on the shoulder, or jewelry and expensive watches) and nothing bad will (email hidden) from the flat you can catch either the cable railways of Montesanto, bringing you to Naples' historic city centre (which is the largest in Europe,and is listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site) or the "funicolare centrale", witch will bring you up to the upper part of the city, named Vomero where you can visit St. Martin's Charterhouse (a former monastery complex, now a museum,) and Castel Sant'Elmo, a medieval fortress overlooking Naples.
Only one remark: although not included in the service, I please to offer my host a simple breakfast (coffee, cereals, jelly and toasted slice and cookies), because I'm glad to make my host feel comfortable, but if you are looking for more refined , maybe you have to consider a B& B accommodation instead.
This is also a gay friendly apartment,and last but not least,
we welcome with love every kind of pet.(the apartment has a small veranda equipped with cat litter, dog kennels, bowls of all kinds. We shall charge no additional cost to receive your 4-legged friends.
Upon request, a pet-sitter service can be provided.)

Such a great place to stay, very well located, clean, tidy, specious, beautiful and perfect to explore Naples and it's surrounding.
Gaia was very helpful with absolutely everything, I honestly couldn't have picked a better place.
Thank you so much for all the advice, recommendations and hints for places to eat, visit and see.
Definitely will stay again on our next visit.
We spent a week in Naples in the charming Gaia's apartment.
We enjoyed the welcome of her friend Roberta, for our early arrival.
Gaia was very helpful before and during our stay.
The apartment is similar to the pictures, it is very spacious, very practical and very pleasant to live, for a weekend or longer.
We also enjoyed the presence of commodities in the kitchen and the bathroom (milk, biscuits, butter, jam, oil, shower gel, shampoo ...)
The apartment is very quiet and very well located. Served by two funiculare (5 minutes walk), it is very close to the historical center, accessible by foot.
We highly recommend this apartment, ideal to discover the charm and authenticity of the beautiful city of Naples!
Grazie per tutto Gaia!
Gaia was very easy to communicate with prior to the visit and her cousin did a great job welcoming us. The flat is decorated tastefully and has a well-equipped kitchen. The bedroom and lounge with its sofa bed are both very cosy and comfortable. However, the directions to the apartment were incomplete: you need to take metro line TWO and the address of the property was not what was given to us, as the apartment was located down some steps on a street opposite which we found with the help of Gaia's cousin. It would have been helpful to know this because information at Napoli Centrale isn't well sign-posted. In addition, the description of this apartment is not completely accurate: there aren't two bathrooms, but one well-equipped bathroom and one small toilet with a sink (the latter does not constitute a bathroom). Furthermore, one of the pictures mentions a "sunny veranda", but there is no such place! The picture of the "sunny veranda" is in fact the corridor to the lounge and bedroom and it is NEVER sunny... despite the sunny weather which we had outside! This was disappointing. Most importantly, the floor of this corridor was particular damp with one centimetre of water because of the condensation. We had to mop this a few times a day. This condensation was not helped by the colder-than-usual weather conditions (around 0 Celsius) at the time of the stay, but it will be a damp flat whenever there is a temperature difference between the outside and inside. Fortunately, the heating system works well. Finally, the local area is certainly typical and with its charm but it is not totally safe day and certainly not at night. Sadly we saw one person injecting drugs on a main road going through the "Quartieri Spagnoli" area close to the apartment. The description makes it sound like it is easy to walk into the centre, which in theory it is if you are prepared to walk through the relatively unsafe local area. This means that you have to rely on the local funicular. There are two funicular stations within 5-10 minutes and at least one of them runs until half midnight every day. If you are intending to stay out later than half midnight, you will need to use taxis or walk for 45 minutes down the Corso Vittorio Emmanuele as opposed to through the "Quartieri Spagnoli" area. Overall, this apartment is still good value for money but we are disappointed that the description is not a true representation of the apartment or the immediate local area.
Dear Sebastien, I'm really sorry you had problems on reaching the appartment from the train station. I usually give my guests a nearby adress as check point because the appartment is located along stairs which are not known to all taxi drivers . Too bad you did’nt call or write me for more details, I would have been happy to guide you home.
I’m also really sad that you met a drug addict nearby the appartment. Sadly Naples is not a Swiss town and you have to be careful especially at night, if you had asked me for advice, I would have said, as I usually do with my guests , to cross without fear certain neighborhoods in the daytime, but at night to avoid them. Unfortunately it is true, the public transport in Naples only work up to a certain time. Fortunately cabs are much cheaper than in other cities.
What I dont understand is why you have found the description of this apartment not accurate: I went through the adv and I clearly specify that the appt. has one large bathroom, and a smaller one only "with sink and toilet," and really do not know what you expected from a veranda (maybe a solarium with deck chairs?) . A veranda is a “ porch or balcony usually roofed and often partly enclosed, extending along the outside of a buildingg (sometimes partly enclosed)”, and this is what appears my veranda even in the pictures ! Maybe its sunnyer in June than in December though …!
Finally, with regards to the condensation, you had to open the windows to air out occasionally, because inside the apartment, for your own comfort, the heating was very strong
Das Appartement ist wirklich nur zu empfehlen!!! Wundervolles Appartement mit viel Platz, sehr angenehmer Atmosphäre, modern eingerichtet, sehr zentral und doch ruhig gelegen. Die Beschreibung und die Fotos entsprachen genau der Realität. Da Gaia nicht in der Stadt war, hat uns ihre (sehr gut englisch sprechende) Cousine begrüßt und uns die Wohnung und alle Details gezeigt. Gaia war jederzeit telefonisch erreichbar und sehr hilfsbereit, auch bei Kleinigkeiten. In einer eher lauten Stadt, ist dieses Appartement eine Oase der Ruhe!! Alles super!!!
Our arrival at Gaia's apartment was really smooth as her cousin was there to welcome us. She was really kind and helped us with all the necessary details.
The apartment was just perfect. Really big and confortable. Big plus for the AC as the weather was kind of hot.
It's close to the funicular so it's super easy to go down to Piazza Plebescito.
The kitchen is really well equipped so it was perfect for travelers like us who prefer to cook to save money.
Ottima esperienza , appartamento molto carino e soprattutto una vista sul golfo di Napoli da lasciare sbalorditi. Lo consiglio a chi ha già visitato Napoli e vuole scoprire una parte della città diversa.
We were very impressed with the welcoming we received from Gaia, and the help and advice she so readily gave to us. She took the time to answer our questions and gave us ideas on what to see in Naples. We felt very safe in her apartment and she left ample staples in her fridge and cupboards for us to use.
