Sleep in a Unesco World Heritage site

My new stay in Naples is a chance to explore another hotel. This time I prefer to stay in a four stars hotel. There is no the fifth star, but it has a grat added value: is positioned inside the Unesco World Heritage: the Galleria Umberto, a city hub for the inhabitants and for the toursits as well. The Gallery was built in XIX century as a shopping area and also now there are shops and bars for the meeting point of the people. Galleria Umberto is located few steps from Teatro San Carlo, Piazza del Plebiscito, the Church of San Ferdinando and Castel Nuovo (Maschio Angioino). It is the perfect place from where to start to visit Naples. The Napoli Art Resort Galleria Umberto is a luxury hotel with an elegant and particular setting. Entering in the building you have to reach the fourth floor where the hotel is. There is the elevator, but as it was in the past to check the entrance, despite the presence of the porter, you need to insert 20 euro cents to go up. Don't worry, the hotel staff will give some coins and for the first time you can exhcange asking to the porter. The best way is to pass from the stairs, because on each floor you can admire the statues and the ancient decorations on the walls. Arriving in the hotel you notice immediately the old and elegant furniture surrounderd by the typical statues of the Neapolitan nativity scene. There…

Arriving in the hotel you notice immediately the old and elegant furniture surrounderd by the typical statues of the Neapolitan nativity scene. There are many and of different dimension, some of them are really old and precious.

On each room door there is an artwork to indicate the number and the furniture is fancy, with the same style of the one around the common spaces. The comfort and the modern equipment with LCD TV with international channels, the minibar, the free Wi-Fi connection, a lovely balcony and luxury amenities and toileteries. The staff is welcoming according to the traditional Neapolitan hospitality. The are available to assist the guests all the time.

You can have a room looking inside the Umberto Gallery or the external side, but when you have breakfast, you are in a room with big windows over the internal part of the Gallery and you can see the walk of the people. The food is good and various, but if you like sweets, their pastry, again as the local tradition, are superb. Meanwhile the barman can prepare for you a good coffee or a cappuccino you will start taste the specialities.

If you need a transfer from or to the airport, the train station or other locations you can ask to the reception to organize it for you. They have a partner who provide private transfer with a quite good price and the transport is personalized to your needs. The experience offered by the Napoli Art Resort Galleria Umberto is really on high level and of course the position in the city is unique, uncomparable.
