“Good base to visit naples”
Reviewed 14 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

The rooftop terrace is definitely what makes this place - great space, great views and well-equipped with bbq, sun beds, dining table etc. Paolo was also extremely helpful and responsive and had a brand new aircon system installed on our 3rd day when the original one broke. He was also very helpful in giving advice on where and what to visit and do.
Well located opposite the main train station of Mergellina which made getting into Naples very easy and cheap. Only a 5 min walk to the harbour where there's a good choice of restaurants to choose from. There's also a Conrad mini mart within a 3 min walk.
There were 4 of us staying (my wife and I plus 2 sons of 21 & 19). The main and only bedroom is now separated as opposed to open which isn't shown in the photos so privacy is fine. Our sons were perfectly comfortable on the large sofa beds.
The only thing preventing me giving a 5/5 is that there are a few basic 'niggles' such as poor dishwasher, no wine glasses, and a motley collection of cutlery and crockery and it feels a little 'tired' but to be honest I'm splitting hairs. You'll be hard pressed to find something this well located (the area is nice too) with such a good roof terrace.

“Great base for a city break/sunbathing combo holiday”

Myself, husband and 18-year old daughter rented this apartment for two weeks and had a great time. The apartment is as advertised and the owner is incredibly helpful; everything went very smoothly. There is a double bed and bathroom (bath and showerhead) on first floor with a second bathroom downstairs (shower). Further beds (double and single) are within the living room and are used as settees during the day. The kitchen is well equipped, great air conditioning, wifi, huge TV etc. But the thing that we loved most was the rooftop terrace...and having it all to ourselves. It's the size of a tennis court, with over 150 potted plants, BBQ area, dining area, sunbeds, shower etc. The view is breath-taking both in the day and at night. We spent a lot of time up here!!

The location is fabulous. It's opposite Mergellina station which is not a problem (few trains and double glazing) and there is a taxi rank just outside (not easy to find in Naples). A 5 minute walk takes you to the coast where you can take a boat to one of the islands (Capri, Ischia). The prom comes alive at night with lots of street vendors, pop up bars etc. There are plenty of restaurants nearby and the supermarket is within a 10 min walk.

This apartment allowed us to have a city break/sunbathing combi type holiday which was perfect for us. There are virtually no beaches in Naples so the terrace was a God-send for lazy days. The rest of the time we were visiting historic sites both in Naples and in the surrounding area. Visiting Rome was easy (1h 10 min by train). Pompeii was only 40 min by train and the island of Ischia (with its great beaches) was only a 30 min boat ride. We didn’t hire a car and when you see how the Neapolitans drive you’ll understand why!

“Wonderful apartment in Naples”
Reviewed 3 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We (3 friends) stayed at the apartment for 1 week. The apartment is located in a not-so-touristic neighborhood, straight across the Mergellina-Station. Everything was very uncomplicated: booking, contacting the owner and receiving the key to the apartment. He was very helpful, especially when we had any questions or problems!

The apartment was exactly as described. Everything was clean. We had a double bed upstairs and a bathroom with a bathtub and a toilet. Downstairs were two more single beds and another bathroom with a shower and a toilet.
The only thing I would mention is, that it could be difficult for taller people to shower, because the ceiling is very low.

The kitchen is fully equipped: fridge, dishwasher, gas stove, microwave and dishes are available.
There is also a huge flat-screen upstairs, if the weather should be not so nice ;)
We would definitely recommend to stay at this apartment! Maybe, we would come back, too!
