This is a beautiful apartment in a very central area. If you have never been to Naples before (as my boyfriend and I hadn't) you should brush up on its city a bit before renting. It is easy to get lost in the web of tiny streets with constantly changing names and vespas coming from all angles.
Naples city center is basically a valley between the peninsula and vesuvius. When you're in the middle you lose sense of direction very easily, so have a good map or get to high ground to determine location.
Anna's apartment was really beautiful and within a day or so we were able to get around quite well with a little help from our gps. The only issue we had while staying at Anna's was the showers. Both are pretty small (the upstairs is smaller)and one had inconsistent hot water while the other filled up around your feet.
Other than this slight inconvenience we really loved the room, Wi-Fi was weak but in the living room/kitchen it was great. The bed was comfortable and you could sleep late as the room got very dark.
Anna is a very friendly and easy-going host! Her description of how to reach the apartment was very detailed and thus we found it easily.
The apartment is spacious, big livingroom and large kitchen, although it was pretty cold inside when we were there (februari).
The room itself is also big but a bit on the dark side. It has a small balcony. There is airconditioning so you can heat or cool the room just as you like it. The bed is big and very comfortable! The room was nice and clean. The bathroom is shared but we had no problems with it ever being occupied.
There are three rooms in total which Anna rents out, and it can be pretty noisy. The walls are not that thick. Also you can hear quite a bit of noise from the streets, but that's what you get when you're in the city center. Didn't really bother us.
The location is actually the main attraction for this apartment: right in de middle of old town (Spaccanapoli). Beautiful old wooden doors, which are open during the day and closed at night (you access through a cute, very small, door inside the main doors), give access to a courtyard in which you will find the old stairs to the apartment. There are many shops and restaurants nearby. Pretty much everything is at walking distance! The neighbourhood has lots of very small, very crowded, and not always very well lit streets and you need to watch your belongings because it's easy to get robbed. We've travelled quite a bit so we were fine but be aware.
The kitchen is a little under-equipped but we didn't use it anyway because it's so easy and cheap to eat in one of the many restaurants nearby. The breakfast is very basic, but so is the price so we had no problems with it.
Officially we had to check out at 11:00h but our flight didn't leave until 20:00h. There were no other visitors for the room that day so Anna let us use it for the rest of the day, which was very nice! This way we didn't need to take our bags with us for the entire day.
Anna's family owns a wine bar nearby, where you can drop in if you have any questions. This makes communication really easy!
Thanks to Anna and her apartment we had a great time in Napels!
Great Place. Big, Clean room. Air conditioning was working well.
The walls are a little thin. We had ear plugs so it wasn't an issue. I would suggest always carrying a pair when traveling anyway :)
Very thoughtful of the host to leave us some breakfast snacks in the morning.
The area is lively and safe. Except on Sundays, but thats a common to the city as a whole
The bathroom is shared with the other 2 rooms. No problems with hot water. The bathroom was cleaned well every 2-3 days. Since it is shared, how clean it is really depends on the other guests sharing it.
Wifi is weak in this room. But had no issues using it in the kitchen and living room areas.
The BnB is on the 3rd floor. There are literally big steps to climb (its a very old building afterall :) ) So be ready for a small leg workout :)
Thanks Anna for having us.
Anna is a fantastic host. We found a very comfortable environment. The house, located in the heart of Naples, was clean, tidy and silent.
We will surely repeat this experience for our next trip to Naples.
Great place in the heart of Naples if your going now you'll love the Christmas markets.. Shared bathroom never had an issue lovely breakfast... Anna was kind to let us leave our bags at her family wine bar just down the road.. Great place would highly recommend. Thanks :)

I am 30 years old girl, I love travelling.
Explore, explore, explore
Do not let the fear take the place of curiosity, the desire to live. Explore to discover, to reach unknown lands, to talk with passers-by, those who remain in your life only a month and then, however, do not go more
Explore to try to really get involved. To err.
To dive from too high and fall.
And then find the right spot where to launch, where to launch does not mean precipitate but learn to fly.
Explore to feel alone in a crowd, to feel incredibly full of love scattered into thin air, away from everything and everyone.
Make love, make the revolution, scream, laugh, run away and come back.
Explore to understand that everything that you thought maybe it is wrong to make you amazed by the many facets of the world around us.
Explore and believe.
Believe that there is still something to be done, still a place to see, one more person to know.
One more story to hear, still a path to walk, still a dream to be realized.
Explore, because we need a generation that keep believing.
We need dreams, energies, to know the differences to break the wall of indifference silent.
Sono una ragazza di 28 anni, studio lingue e amo viaggiare.
Partite partite partite.
Non lasciate che la paura prenda il posto della curiosità, della voglia di vivere. Partite per scoprire, per toccare terre sconosciute, per parlare con i passanti, quelli che nella vostra vita rimangono solo un mese e poi però non se ne vanno più
Partite per provare, per mettervi in gioco davvero. Per sbagliare.
Per buttarvi da troppo in alto e cadere.
Per poi trovare il punto giusto da dove lanciarsi; dove lanciarsi non significa precipitare ma imparare a volare.
Partite per sentirvi soli in mezzo alla folla, per sentirvi incredibilmente pieni di amore spersi nel nulla, lontani da tutto e tutti.
Fate l’amore, fate la rivoluzione, urlate, ridete, correte lontani e ritornate.
Partite per capire che tutto quello che credevate forse è sbagliato, per farvi stupire dalle infinite sfaccettature del mondo che ci circonda.
Partite e credete.
Credere che ci sia ancora qualcosa da fare, ancora un posto da vedere, ancora una persona da conoscere.
Ancora una storia da sentire, ancora un sentero da percorrere, ancora un sogno da realizzare.
Partite perchè abbiamo bisogno di una generazione che ci creda ancora.
Abbiamo bisogno di sogni, di energie, di conoscere le differenze per rompere il muro dell’indifferenza silenziosa.
Partite perchè sognare non sia solo il privilegio di una generazione passata.
Ritornate perchè siano i sogni della nostra generazione a costruire il domani.
