Renaissance Naples Hotel Mediterraneo Review
If you’re looking to stay smack in the middle of Naples’ best attractions, then the Renaissance Naples Hotel Mediterraneo definitely fits the bill. The Marriot Bonvoy Hotel is within walking distance of Via Toledo, the San Carlo Theater, and several convenient metro stations.
The Renaissance Naples Hotel itself exudes an old-world, art deco charm with marble floors, classic decor, and traditional furnishing. While it’s not the fanciest or most modern hotel in town, it makes for a solid home base for anyone who plans to spend most of their time exploring the city.
The Check-in Experience
If there’s one thing you won’t have to worry about at the Renaissance Naples Hotel Mediterraneo, it’s being taken care of. The staff is all very welcoming and professional, so check-in was a breeze.
I found the rooms a little underwhelming and on the smaller side. While that’s not necessarily unusual for Naples, things can get cramped quickly, especially if you share a bathroom.
In all fairness, I did opt for a standard guest room, and my friends who sprang for a suite enjoyed a lot more room and nicer decor. But the views are incredible and include nearby landmarks and top Naples tourist attractions like Castel Nuevo and Mount Vesuvius.
Make sure you head up to the Roof Garden and Terrace Angiò every morning for an incredible breakfast spread. Also, sipping coffee as you look out over the city and the Gulf of Naples is a bucket list-worthy experience.
These were our views of Mount Vesuvius from the rooftop terrace.
Amenities & Facilities
While I know fitness isn’t everyone’s idea of vacation fun, I couldn’t get enough of the hotel’s McFit Fitness Centre. Every stay comes with complimentary use of the 18,000-square-foot facility, where you’ll find everything from bikes and elliptical machines to weight and rowing machines.
It’s not a bad place to burn off all the carbs that are one of the highlights of every tremendous Italian vacation. There’s also a great swimming pool and whirlpool on the 10th-floor Solarium with incredible city views.
If you’re looking for a convenient dining option during your stay, head down to O’Break, the hotel’s on-site restaurant. While the menu options can be limited, you’ll find a nice mixture of classic Italian and international cuisine made from locally sourced ingredients.
There’s also a nice bar called O’Koffi, where you’ll find options ranging from cocktails to coffee. The lounge area is outfitted with nice leather seats and makes for a great place to relax after exploring.
Unique Selling Points
Overall, location is the most significant selling point of the Renaissance Naples Hotel Mediterraneo. It is positioned between the Spanish Quarter and the city’s center near numerous great attractions like the Castel Nuovo, Naples National Archaeological Museum, Piazza del Plebiscito, and Galleria Borbonica.
While the hotel doesn’t offer free parking, it is within walking distance of several metro stations. Familiarizing yourself with them can save you a lot of change throughout your trip. During our stay, we opted to valet our car, given the busyness of downtown Naples.
The Surrounding Area
Not only is the hotel in a friendly, safe neighborhood, but you’ll also find plenty of great bars, restaurants, and top tourist attractions nearby. If you’re looking for a nice place to enjoy a nightcap, check out the Barrio Botanico – Municipio, an upscale cocktail bar that’s an easy 5-minute walk away.
Many excellent restaurants are nearby, including the Sea Front Di Martino Pasta Bar and international options like the small but delicious Cicciarap Filippino Restaurant. Make sure you also check out the incredible nearby pizzerias like Gusto Marigliano Pizzeria and La Lazzara Trattoria e Pizzeria.
Is Renaissance Naples Worth the Price?
I’d say that the Renaissance Naples Hotel’s status as a 4-star hotel is just about right. It’s got all the essentials you’d expect for an upscale stay in an unbeatable location.
While it’s certainly not a bad choice, it is worth mentioning that countless other hotels in the area offer similar accommodations at better rates. So, while I wouldn’t necessarily steer anybody away from the Renaissance Naples Hotel, I plan to see what others offer during my next stay.
