With designer furniture, frescoed ceilings and champagne on arrival, you wouldn’t know these Neapolitan hotels are affordable (but they are).

Naples offers some of the best value for money in Italy: ingredients like tomatoes and mozzarella are of such high quality here, they make even the simplest dishes taste amazing. And the pizza, oh the pizza… Italy’s most famous export – both marinara and margherita were created here – is served up on every corner for only a few euros apiece. And if you stay in one of these cheap hotels, you’ll have enough cash left over to savour every single bite.

You don’t have to tell hosts Angela, Massimo and Nunzia what hospitality means: they’ll welcome you with a bottle of bubbles and attentive service throughout your stay, whether that’s leaving a breakfast basket outside your room if you have an early flight or advising on Naples’ best eats, based on your personal preferences. They put the same attention to detail into the rooms, decorating them with marble sculptures and Fornasetti-inspired murals.

Brightly hued design furniture, in-laid wooden wall panels, frescoed ceilings with chandeliers and private balconies: nothing about these rooms with smart en-suites makes you think it’s a budget hotel. The location is hard to top, too – in the heart of Naples, steps away from the impressive National Archaeological Museum (go on a Thursday night, when you’ll only pay a few euros for your ticket).

Gabriele and Manuela manage this small-scale, decently priced bed and breakfast with the same on-point professionalism and hospitality of a luxury hotel. They surprise their guests with a different breakfast served in the room every morning, share the best local tips on Naples’ food scene and are always available for questions and requests. The location is another plus: around the corner of Piazza del Plebiscito, in the middle of an ancient fishermen’s neighbourhood, with most of the city’s main sights within walking distance.

    The Naples’ subway system is a fast and budget-friendly way to get around during your city trip (many stations are adorned by artworks from the likes of William Kentridge), and this guesthouse is located less than a minute away from Dante metro station. Host Guido will gladly point out all the must-sees, as well as his favourite restaurants and cafés. For a modestly priced hotel, the rooms have surprisingly large bathrooms with comfortable walk-in showers and an extensive set of free toiletries.

    A boutique hotel with a spa and wellness centre, private hot tubs and impressive interiors – you can hardly call this a budget hotel (and yet, a budget hotel it is). The smart soundproofed rooms, with their antique parquet floors, exposed brick walls, fireplaces, spacious living areas and Instagrammable furniture, are nothing less than luxurious (without the associated price tag). Even the location is great: metro station Dante is a five-minute stroll away and nearby cheap eat, Pizzeria Di Matteo, has pizza faccia gialla (literally, yellow-faced pizza, made with yellow tomatoes, mozzarella di bufala and porcini mushrooms) to die for.
