Chiaja Hotel de Charme Review

No views here, but this 18th-century palazzo has a great location and its apartments, all on the first floor, have plenty of atmosphere. Originally owned by the Marchese Nicola Le Caldano Sasso III, whose portrait hangs above the lobby's fireplace, it is now run by his granddaughter Mimi. Antiques from when the palace was new add a personal touch to the elegant guest rooms, most of which have whirlpool baths. One section was once a brothel; rooms there are named for the ladies who then occupied them.

    Wonderfully hidden

    If we had not take a cab to the hotel I don't think we would have found it. The huge wooden doors didn't reveal an inkling of what was behind them.

    The hotel is beautifully decorated with antiques, the staff was very helpful. We mentioned we wanted to hear some jazz and they found two different clubs. They suggested the best forms of transportation to sites we wanted to see.

    You feel like you are in the heart of old Naples. The streets fill with people who just seem to be enjoying themselves in the evennings.

    The beds are a little firm.
