“Nice B&B”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2012

The owner, Rosa, is a gem. She's very nice and she immediately feels like your Italian grandmother. The location is good. It's walking distance (about 40 minutes) to the Centro Storico. Since the Centro Storico is somewhat seedy, I was glad we didn't stay there, but the taxi to get to the b&b was expensive. She served breakfast to all the guests around a table. It was wonderful to eat and chat with everyone. Also, Rosa served some of her homemade jam. It was excellent!

The only con is that this is Rosa's actual apartment. She put us in her room while she slept on the couch. That made me a bit uncomfortable. I know it was her choice, but it feels weird to kick a lovely old lady out of her room!

We stayed only two nights but wished it could have been longer. Rosa's hospitality, along with splended views of Mt. Vesuvius from her rose-filled balcony, warmed our hearts to Napoli. I felt being welcomed into her home was a privilege as well as an excellent way to learn local culture.

Mrs. Rossa, the owner , was very helpful in guiding through Naples. The breakfast is typical for Italy, with home-made jam . The terrace gives a great view of the Naples' bay.

We stayed with Rosa at Casa Chiara for four nights this past May in her beautiful home overlooking the bay of Napoli. She was a wonderful hostess, providing a delicious breakfast each morning while helping us plan our trip for the day and even sharing some of her homemade limoncello in the evening when we returned. Her orange marmalade was amazing and she gave us a jar of it as well the recipe to take home with us. Casa Chiara itself was a nice respite from the busy city of Naples since it is situated both near the top of a hill and at the top of the building. The marble floors, high ceilings, and rooftop deck were beautiful and so much nicer than a cramped hotel. The bay area and much of Napoli was also easily accessible on foot, by a funicular, or affordable by taxi. Rosa even arranged a taxi to the airport for us on our final day in Italy. We would definitely recommend staying with Rosa at Casa Chiara.

We stayed two nights at Casa Chiara and couldn't have made a better choice. The owner, Rosa, is a fantastic lady with lots of knowledge about her city. She made us feel at home from the start and offered a superb breakfast with fresh pastries, coffee and home made marmelade. Great location near both the center and Vomero which is a nice quartier on top of the hill.
I really recommend this place.

I spent 5 days here in November 2011 and I recommend it to anyone going to Naples.The proprietor’s name is Rosa and she is a most pleasant and agreeable Neapolitan lady. Nothing is too much trouble for her and she has a wealth of knowledge about the local area having lived in Naples all here life. The dwelling is modest on the outside but inside it is palatial. My room was huge with marble floors and twenty foot ceilings and it was in mint condition. The room opened onto a balcony overlooking the town below and also I had magnificent views of the harbour and the bay of Naples and also straight ahead of me was Mount Vesuvius. I had the use of my own private bathroom. A continental breakfast included and all this for only 40 euro a night. The residence overlooks the city and is easily accessible via the funicular railway.

I agree with the previous reviewer that Rosa is really what makes this place great. We stayed for 1 night on our way back from the Amalfi coast. We wanted a simple, clean place with a bit of personality, and that's just what we got.

The rooms are pretty basic, but the house is just lovely and Rosa is warm and friendly. Although we didn't speak any Italian and she speaks little English, we still had fun communicating over breakfast in her living room. She topped it off with homemade apricot jam and even gave us a little bottle to take home with us. For one night in Naples before heading home Casa Chiara was a far better option than a generic hotel..
