A stately mansion converted into a sumptuous 138-room hotel in the heart of Naples
It is hard to overlook Palazzo Caracciolo’s glaring architectural heritage; it was, after all, a palace, a fortress and a noble mansion before being converted into a 138 room luxury hotel. Today, lemon trees grow up a giant pergola near the entrance, and tables and chairs are scattered inside the cobbled courtyard where horses and chariots used to park. Soaring ceilings and double height windows punctuate every room in the grand building; guest rooms and suites are like theatrical sets where Baroque and Rococo details are juxtaposed against modern touches like glass balconies and sophisticated marble bathrooms.
Bed and Bath
The hotel offers an array of guest room options for single parties, families and couples. Chic junior suites have a duplex layout with sleeping quarters recessed in a second floor mezzanine with a clear glass railing the looks onto a lofty living room. The historical suites put the old palazzo’s architectural layout front and center. All bathrooms have clean, marble clad layouts, with amenities like hair dryers, fluffy bathrobes and deep soaking tubs.
MGallery Palazzo Carcciola serves one of the best breakfast buffets in Naples with platters of local cheeses, cured meats and fresh fruits, locally made breads, and a flurry of different cereals, juices and yogurt smoothies. The bar, La Cantina, is a nice spot for an afternoon aperitif or a nightcap. The hotel’s La Cucina restaurant serves a bevy of regional specialty pastas, truckloads of fresh fish and an excellent selection of regional and domestic wines.
In the Area
This highly chaotic, 13th century historic neighborhood in central Naples enjoys prime location next to Napoli Centrale train station. Public transportation abounds in this busy part of town, but many urban attractions, like the Naples National Archaeological Museum and Sansevero Museum, are each a short 10-15 minute walk from Palazzo Caracciolo. Nearby, are Naples' world famous pizzerias, like L’Antica Pizzeria da Michele, Pizzeria Trianon and Pizzeria di Matteo. Also close by is the Via Duomo, a long avenue lined with clothing boutiques and cafes leading all the way to Naples' bustling marina waterfront.
