Fodor's Expert Review Chiaja Hotel de Charme

Via Chiaia 216, Naples, Campania, 80121, Italy

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 great-great grandson Piero. Antiques from when the palace was new add a personal touch to the elegant guest rooms, some of which have whirlpool baths. One section was once a brothel; rooms there are named for the ladies who then occupied them.
