We had read so many reviews of Naples which suggested it was a dirty and crime-ridden city, and many hotels were on dodgy streets, that we felt a bit apprehensive, but decided for its proximity to Pompeii and a few other places that we would see for ourselves. We have been pleasantly surprised. Yes, the streets are dirty, but people who were disgusted obviously haven't been to developing countries. We don't agree that the little door that is the entrance to Chiaja Hotel is "creepy". It is strange to foreigners but many other doors in the vicinity are similar. It is an architectural style of the time the building was erected. And while the courtyard could have been prettier, the interior of the hotel was pleasant. The lift is tiny but I bet all lifts in the old buildings are like that. We didn't bother watching TV, so just Italian programmes were fine. It's interesting to watch the street from the balcony. It's not noisy if you close the windows and use the air-con. The breakfast was ok though not great, but it is very pleasant to come back in the afternoon from being out walking all day, to find a tray of eclairs and petit-fours waiting on a table to refresh ourselves with. The location is great, and those "vault-like" doors actually made us feel more secure, as did the strong police presence in the vicinity. We had a very pleasant three night stay.
