Luxury Travel AdvisorOur last stop was the Chiaja Hotel, the 18th-century ancestral palazzo of the Marquis Nicola Lecaldano Sasso la Terza, which was restored by his great-great-great-grandson, Pietro Fusella and dedicated to the members of this ancient family. There are 33 rooms in the hotel’s two sections. In the original palazzo, the traditional rooms are named after Granddad, Auntie or Mamma; across the inner courtyard, in what once was a brothel, the rooms are flirty and fun and named after famous ladies of the night.
We liked Superior No. 110, named after Zi (aunt) Checchina, which has a balcony overlooking the Via Chiaja and a Jacuzzi. No. 208 overlooks the street and is decorated with antiques. The 11 rooms in the former brothel all overlook the bridged second-floor courtyard, which was originally constructed so that the ladies could look down to see their potential customers. Our favorite was No. 205, the “Mimi do Vesuvio,” which is a Superior with a Jacuzzi tub and double windows. Naturally, it is decorated in passionate red.
