Naples, the regional capital of Campania and the third-largest municipality in Italy after Rome and Milan, is probably one of the most underrated Italian cities.

Fashion Studio Magazine visited Naples in February and April 2018 and we were really impressed with the city's beautiful architecture and its excellent dining and shopping scenes.


Starhotels Terminus is an elegant oasis located in the bustling heart of the city, right next to Napoli Centrale railway station. This four-star hotel has a distinctive look and feel and holds a couple of surprises for its guests (such as a stunning rooftop garden offering panoramic views across the Bay of Naples towards Vesuvius).


"The hotel’s 169 rooms and suites are ideal for city breaks or romantic getaways in Naples. After a day exploring the old town, the Terminus is a haven of calm with silky fabrics, light tones and a friendly, laid-back atmosphere." - Starhotels

Welcome to My Suite!

My spacious apartment at Terminus Napoli consisted of a large living room, comfortable bedroom, modern bathroom featuring both a bathtub and a walk-in shower, and two private balconies overlooking the busy streets with Mount Vesuvius in the background. 

Neutral colour palette was not only elegant, but also encouraged relaxation after the whole day packed with business and leisure activities. What's great about Terminus is not only its convenient central location, but also excellent leisure amenities it offers: a well-equipped gym and a beautiful rooftop terrace where you can relax in the evening with a glass of Italian wine.


"The Gulf of Napoli shimmers in the sun. Glasses of Champagne clink and sparkle. Gentle music drifts from the grand piano. The Terminus is a retreat from everyday life in the midst of lively Napoli. Just outside is the bustling Piazza Garibaldi, leading the way to the historical heart of Napoli. Inside, you’ll find a welcoming haven of Italian hospitality, where every detail – from the fabrics and furnishings to the stunning rooftop garden – exudes the warmth and romance for which this Mediterranean city is famous." - Starhotels
