H2C Hotel Napoli: A modern place in a historical city
The H2C Hotel is a small group of 4-star hotels in Italy. They are known for their customised service for business customers. I stayed at H2C hotel Napoli and found that the hotel was appropriate for guests on holidays too. The information for prices and booking can be found on the website for H2C Napoli. Naples is part of the Campania region in the South of Italy.
The hotel is situated on the road Via Nuova Marina and is only a 20 minute walk from Molo Beverello Port, allowing access by sea to Capri Island and other coastal areas. This makes the hotel a perfect stopover for anyone on a weekend break. Other transport links are quite close to the hotel so the location is good if you prefer to reduce your travel time around Naples.
The airport is a 20 minute drive away from the hotel. The reception staff at the hotel can arrange a cab for you on the way back to the airport, the cab fare cost roughly €20 each way.* Garibaldi train station provides links to major cities and is a 10 minute cab ride away from the hotel or a 25 minute walk.
The hotel from the inside is very clean and the décor style in the reception area is quite modern. Members of staff from all over the hotel are very friendly and helpful.
There is a variety of bedding arrangements that can be requested.** The rooms have a minibar, TV, air conditioning and room service is also available. There is a room service and restaurant menu guide in each room with more information on opening times and prices. The housekeeping was very efficient, especially of the bathroom it was always cleaned properly and the complementary toiletries were refilled. Our room had a shower cubicle but the hotel does have rooms with bath tubs.***
The hotel also provides a buffet style breakfast so it is definitely worth enquiring about that when making the booking or at reception when checking in. Breakfast is served in the restaurant area on the ground floor. The variety of food on offer is good and there is a coffee machine offering different types of hot drinks. The waiters are attentive and ensure everything is refilled if running low.
The hotel has a gym and sauna facility, although it is best to check if these will be available at the time of your stay if you are hoping to use them. Sometimes the sauna is unavailable due to essential maintenance. In addition to Wi-Fi internet in the rooms there is also a computer available for use next to reception.
Some of the Executive and Junior Suites have their own private terrace area. The main terrace area of the hotel has sunbeds and seating available for all guests to use. The balcony on the terrace provides a view of the port and sea. Although it might be a bit too hot to enjoy during the day in summer, the evenings are cooler and the view of the lit up port area is nice.
This photo shows the view from one of the hotel rooms which is nice and is different to having a city view. The old style and structure of the surrounding buildings has been kept and there is an 'old Italian town' feel to the area. H2C Hotel Napoli definitively stands out as being a modern structure.
