Urban bayside with Vesuvian views

Looking out over the bustling docks of Naples, the Romeo Hotel is a modernist metal-and-glass creation packed with the impressive art collection of the eponymous owner. Expect a glimpse of the high life when you hobnob at this well-stocked boutique hotel – Michelin-rated cuisine, a stocked cigar room, extensive wine cellar – where designer-doused guests are often as striking as the Mount Vesuvius views.

At the hotel

Spa, gym, gardens, free WiFi throughout. In rooms: minibar, Nespresso coffee machine, flatscreen TV, Jacob Jensen and Bang & Olufsen telephones, the hotel’s own bath products.

Our favourite rooms

All rooms are outfitted with Don’do by Poltrona Frau chairs and locally made Tramontano leather goods, and many look out over the bay. For the best views, go for the Romeo Bay View Suites: you’ll get the Amalfi Coast and Capri on your right as well as Vesuvius and the ships in the docks to the left. The Garden & Pool Suite has its own tranquil garden and outdoor whirlpool tub, and the Romeo Skyline Suite is your own personal spa, with a private sauna, steam room and Jacuzzi.


The small heated pool on the ninth floor makes the most of the hotel’s urban coastal location: bathers can simultaneously oversee the dockworkers unloading crates at the port and gaze at distant Vesuvius or Capri. It’s outside on a terrace right next to the restaurant and bar, so grab a cocktail to sip while you lounge.


Guests get free entry to the Dogana del Sale spa. This high-gloss, neon-flecked space has a salt room, three Jacuzzis, two saunas and eight treatment rooms for massages, facials, body wraps and scrubs, and mani-pedis. Post-pampering, relax in a chromotherapy-lit lounge.

Packing tips

Art, design and antiques buffs will want a notebook, camera or sketch pad to hand to record their favourite pieces from Mr Romeo’s collection. We loved the Edo-period Japanese armour and the early 18th-century wooden model of Naples in the lobby.


There's a well-equipped gym too.


Welcome. The Kids Garden playroom has a doll’s house and rocking horse. Babysitting is available at €25 an hour and a free crèche can be used 10am–8pm. However, the amount of expensive art on display might discourage all but the bravest parents.

Food and Drink

Top Table

In Il Comandante, sitting beside the windows (or outside on the decking) provides the best bay views for watching the ships, but for a cosier meal there’s also a four-table room overlooking the higgledy-piggledy Naples skyline.

Dress Code

Italians aren’t known for being underdressed, and Il Comandante’s diners live up to their glamorous reputation. (They’re also likely to be far more tanned than you, and have much shinier hair.)

Hotel restaurant

On the top floor, Michelin-starred Il Comandante serves up an adventurous and regularly changing fine-dining menu, as well as some jaw-dropping views of the bay through the floor-to-ceiling windows. A Modern Med menu includes regional classics such as egg 65° with smoked mozzarella, potatoes foam and truffle or grilled scampi with smoked buffalo milk and puffed corn. There are tasting menus for the indecisive. Bistrot 9850 (on the ground floor) serves coffee, harder drinks and tasty morsels until late. The Beluga Lounge Bar & Terrace serves great views, as well as a buffet breakfast, lunch and snacks.

Hotel bar

The Beluga Lounge on the ninth floor has awe-inspiring views to gaze at while sipping a cocktail. Later, move the party downstairs to Bistrot 9850, where drinks flow till 1am.

Last orders

The Beluga Lounge serves breakfast, lunch and snacks from 7am and is open till 11.30pm from April to October and 7pm from November to March; ll Comandante serves dinner 7.30pm–10.30pm, or dine at Bistrot 9850 7pm–11pm, which serves drinks till 1am.

Room service

Room service is available 24/7: order antipasti and sandwiches or hot dishes, like home-made ravioli or sea bass fillet.

Worth getting out of bed for

Bask in the spa’s salt room for a while: inhaling the mineral goodness of air infused with salt is an old Eastern European tradition that’s supposed to benefit your skin, lungs and all-round wellbeing. Then, it’s time explore Naples. Some historic churches are nearby: less than 15 minutes’ walk from Romeo Hotel is Gesù Nuovo on Via San Sebastiano (+39 081 557 8111), which dates back to 1470 and was originally a palace. Its Baroque architecture and ornate interior make it well worth a visit. (When visiting churches, covered shoulders are a must.)

It’s also a short walk from Romeo Hotel to the port, where you’ll find boats bound for Capri and Sorrento. Walk down Via Cristoforo Colombo to the SNAV ticket office ( to embark on your daytrip. For an insight into the volcanic forces that have shaped the region, a trip to the crater of Vesuvius is unmissable. Local guides lead walking tours, and bus excursions are run by Vesuvio Express (+39 081 739 3666).

Local restaurants

Naples has the finest pizza you’ll ever eat: the best is to be found along Via dei Tribunali, less than 10 minutes’ walk from the hotel. There’s a host of pizzerias to pick from: some are pretty basic, but all will feature a lively local clientele devouring huge circles of bread with any topping imaginable for only €3 or €4. The service is speedy, too. Two of the best are Di Matteo, 94 via dei Tribunali (+39 081 455 262), and Sorbillo, 38 via dei Tribunali (+39 081 033 1009;

Local cafés

At Gran Caffe Gambrinus, locals and visitors alike gather to sip coffee, nibble delicate pastries and enjoy the detailed Belle Epoque interior (+39 081 417 582;

Local bars

Anonymous review

Every hotel is visited personally by members of our team prior to review and given the Smith seal of approval. As soon as our anonymous reviewers have returned from this Italy boutique hotel and unpacked their souvenir bottles of limoncello, a full account of their luxury city break will be with you. In the meantime, to whet your wanderlust, here's a quick peek inside Romeo Hotel in Naples…

Amid Naples’ graffiti-adorned streets, steps from the ships coming and going in the docks, is the conspicuously polished edifice of Romeo Hotel, which offers views of Vesuvius and Capri and attracts a crowd glitzy enough that the guests are almost as beautiful as the vistas. Inside, the owner’s extensive private collection of art and antiques will win the hearts of design fans, and with slick decor in every room (dark wood flooring, Caprai fabrics and Don’do by Poltrona Frau chairs), the hotel sets the stage for modern-day Romeos to woo their Juliets.

And, once they emerge from their suites, they’ll find all the luxuries they expect — a brand new spa, gastronomic delights and a peerlessly polite staff — as well as some enjoyable surprises, such as the fully stocked cigar room and unusual works of art around every corner. It’s an enticing rendezvous for star-cross’d lovers…

We loved

Lovely modern hotel with spacious rooms. Fantastic spa which was great to relax in after much walking around Naples and the archeological sites of Pompeii and Herculaneum.

Don’t expect

The hotel is situated in a not so nice area of Naples.

We loved

It was great to have a pool to jump in at the end of a day of exploring. Our children (aged 8 and 10) loved it. We loved the i DDuje Scugnizzi restaurant just a few minutes walk away, and went back three times.

Don’t expect

...much action at the sushi restaurant. We never tried it as it was always empty and a bit depressing-looking.

We loved

The style of this hotel, its location close to both the port and the centre of Naples. A good place also to stay if you want to explore the ancient sites. Good roof top restaurant. You're within walking distance of both the shopping centre and also the Castel dell'Ovo.

Don’t expect

The most beautiful view, as it overlooks the port.
