I stayed in the hotel two years ago. The location is great. However, I was disappointed by th room. The lights were broken and the room could use some updating. I was disappointed on this stay compared to two years ago. However the morning breakfast buffet is still very good.

Well, 'royal' is not an adjective I would use in the name of this hotel. Come to think of it, the word 'hotel' might be up for debate too. With 'Tetris' bath tiling and carpet with all the characteristics of a balding goat, the one saving grace is probably the receptionist, Fabia. The bellboy refused to carry my bags and...

Have just left this hotel and must say that prior to an experience with the general manager the level of service was excellent at the front desk.

Currently staying at the hotel and feel that there are issues that need to be addressed. On arrival had to unload luggage from taxi and take to reception without any help from porter. Whilst checking in the porter appeared coyly, and then began to load luggage onto trolley hoping for a tip. Be aware to check that your room matches...

The location is excellent, just some meters from the sea, with a pedestrian frontline (no cars) and lots of restaurants surrounding. The view of the sea and the Castel d'uovo in front, with Vesuvio and Capri at the background is amazing. There are actually two buildings. Do not expect a view to the sea unless you pay the full fare....

We booked a balcony room at this hotel overlooking the Bay of Naples. We requested a preference for a room with disabled facilities or a walk-in shower ( big mistake).

I was relocated here at short notice by a corporate travel agent from a poor hotel elsewhere in Naples. Had some issues with the company booking on arrival, but the receptionist called the agent and sorted it immediately.

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
