Arriving into Naples to Holiday Inn central station wasn't ideal in a city that looks out of Italy and the whole of Europe. Although the people are amazing but not a place to waste a vacation day until we got to Chiaia. A lovely, lively and clean street that is perfect for an afternoon walk. The shops are plenty and...

We stayed in Chiaia and I have to say it was a good place to stay. If you're looking to do a lot of sight seeing and then have a good meal followed by a few relaxing drinks in a trendy part of town then Chiaia is the place to be. There are parts of the city that are more... More

The Chiaia area is the Rodeo Drive or Rue St. Honore of Naples. Most of the high-end retailers have shops in this area. (although I did notice that Prada had closed its shop.). Some nice restaurants too. While a bit cleaner than the rest of the city, it's still covered in a layer of grime.

Prior to arriving to Naples on our honeymoon, my husband and I were told to just stay away - Naples was supposed to be gritty and not appropriate for honeymooning. While this can be true for most of Naples, this is completely not at all the case in Chiaia. Our hotel was situated here and it was the only neighborhood... More

Less messy part of Naples filled with nice shops, restaurants and a decent park. Definitely a place to visit as it also contains a 'PC Hoofd straat' with designer shops.

Stayed at the hotel Majestic in this area, and loved being able to step,out into this lovely area. Full of great independent retailers. My husband bought shirts at a small specialist store and they are wonderfully well made and lasting well. This is a great up market bazaar style area, and the shopping is great. The area is teeming with... More

Very nice neighborhood, close to the beach, nice buildings and sights. Cleaner, wider streets, and less traffic in comparison to the city center. Good neighborhood for walking and shopping. It's about 35-40 minutes walk from city center, but worth the visit. Lots of seafood restaurants and pizzeria to choose from.

Originally booked this as a last minute trip but changed from a cheaper area of town "due to being a single traveller" and wasnt disappointed. Muxh cleaner and spacious part of town walking around near midnight I felt very safe to walk around and not be bothered. A decision well made.

Don't take my title of the review as the geographic location. It's just an ironic class reference. If you are feeling uneasy about coming to Naples from all the stories you've heard, just come to Chiaia and stay in this area. You have everything you need here - high end designers, wine bars, lovely historic trattoria, wide streets with some... More
