Two months ago, I had the pleasure of enjoying a long weekend in Naples. I had never actually spent time in the Italian city and was really stoked to check it out despite the mixed reviews from just about everyone I had talked to.
One thing that surprised me almost instantly was the Naples accommodation options that existed. There were so many places that were suited to all budgets, including a small budget for those taking advantage of the free things to do in Naples.
The place I called home for a few days was outstanding and one of my favorite places I have ever stayed at. This guide of where to stay in Naples will detail options from luxury hotels in Naples to hostels in Naples. If you have a suggestion, please leave it in the comments section.

If you want to wake up every morning to a breathtaking view of the ocean, then stay at Grand Hotel Vesuvio. The hotel is close to some of Naples’ popular landmarks like Castel dell’Ovo, a historical seaside castle.
It is also a short walk away from Mappatella Beach, where you can get a tan and swim and admire the insanely gorgeous views of this seaside Italian city.
Grand Hotel Vesuvio has many amenities that you can use. There’s a swimming pool, a spa lounge, a steam room, a Jacuzzi, a sauna, and a fitness center on the property. A bar and restaurant in the hotel serve up delicious food and great coffee.

Ahhh… this was one of my favorite places I have stayed at, ever. I wasn’t expecting too much as I booked it just kind of on a whim, but the Spaghetti House was fantastic. It is a room in an apartment. The room has a huge bathroom, a comfortable bed, and wifi download speeds that rival Romania’s (if you travel, you will understand how fast this is).
The host was incredibly friendly, had a cute dog (that I only got to see one time…blah), and there was an amazing pizzeria next door that I ate at multiple times. The best thing about the Spaghetti House was the anonymity that existed. You felt like you had your own house.
While it is a private room, you don’t enter into someone’s home. It is a corridor that has a community Italian espresso machine (felt it was important to mention that). It is very quiet and chilled out there. This is truly one of the best places to stay in Naples and I highly, highly recommend it! It was one of my Naples highlights.
Spaghetti House is located near the Naples Central Train Station. It is the perfect Naples accommodation if you’re basing yourself in Naples to take many day trips around the region or even a weekend on the Amalfi Coast.
This is a great place to stay if you’re visiting Herculaneum or Pompeii, as well. You can find the Spaghetti House at Via Cristoforo Marino 18 Scala B (4th Floor) in Naples.
Hostels in Naples
Hostel of the Sun
You will find Hostel of the Sun near the Port of Naples and it is truly one of the most colorful Naples accommodation options you could imagine finding in the Italian city. There is a communal kitchen, international DVD collection, and widespread wifi that is high-speed.
The staff speaks an array of European languages and you will not be hard-pressed to get the travel information you need if you stay at Hostel of the Sun.
One of the best things about this Naples hostel is that it is located near the port and there are daily departures to Sicily, Ischia, and Capri. This is a great place to base yourself if you’re looking to visit any of the aforementioned islands. You can find Hostel of the Sun at Via Melisurgo 15 by the Port of Naples in Naples.
NeapolitanTrips Hostel & Bar
Neapolitan Trips Hostel and Bar is located in the heart of Naples and is 600 meters from Maschio Angioino and about a ten-minute walk from Piazza Plebiscito Square. The property boasts good and accessible wifi, a lounge, and a terrace… which in my opinion is the most important thing when booking accommodation in Italy. Okay, that and having good food nearby.
The dorms are air-conditioned and hairdryers are provided in the shared bathrooms. The towels and linens are also included in the daily rate you will pay. There is also an area with billiards, darts, and table tennis if you’re looking to have a little bit of fun at the hostel. You can find NeapolitanTrips Hostel & Bar at 10 Via dei Fiorentini, Plebiscito in Naples.

Airbnb in Naples, Italy
There are several Airbnb options available in Naples in winter and summer both. Since Italy is suffering from overtourism in certain cities, I would definitely look into hotel options first and foremost. If nothing is available to suit your needs, Airbnb may be a good last resort (or you can pick a city with less tourism as basically all of Italy is freaking amazing).
Renting a Car in Naples
If you’re a confident driver and don’t mind taking your Naples vacation to the road, definitely consider renting a car.
I actually find the Italian train system to be not as bad as so many people say, so I have never considered this an option, but it may be for you. Definitely study the road rules of Italy before going out and driving around.
Naples Tours and Excursions
Italy is brimming with opportunities for tourists… so much that I can’t stop traveling there because there is always something new to see.
If you’re not keen to independently travel around due to lack of transportation or whatever, definitely consider booking a Naples tour. There are amazing places close by, such as Herculaneum and Pompeii, and these can best be seen by joining a tour from Naples. Click here to find out more about Naples tour options.
