The Best Boutique Hotels in Naples

Live a life of luxury, or maybe just a weekend, in Naples, Italy’s coastal gem. We’ve rounded up our pick of the best boutique hotels in Naples for you to enjoy.

Naples, located along Italy’s west coast, is often considered a city of two halves. On the one hand, it embraces history with magnificent sights such as the Duomo di Napoli and natural wonders like Mount Vesuvius attracting culture-lovers, but on the other hand, its urban scene is often dubbed chaotic, grimy, and unloved. And yet hidden amongst the apparent chaos lie a few hidden gems: eerie yet thrilling catacombs, mouth-watering pizza, and without a doubt some of the world’s most stylish boutique hotels.

We’ve rounded up our pick of the best boutique hotels in Naples for you to enjoy. A night in one of these swanky suites will make you feel like Italian royalty. It’s time to swap the canals of Venice and the Colosseum of Rome for Naples and its wonderfully modern edginess for an Italian getaway with a difference.
