Where to Stay in Naples: Editor’s Picks

 

Deciding where to stay in Naples, Italy isn’t as easy as in most European cities. Naples has some iffy neighborhoods, rife with pickpockets. These neighborhoods are also home to incredible pizzerias, mom and pop stores, and ancient churches; and they give Naples its vibrant atmosphere, making it one of my favorite cities in the world.

Further, to help you choose where to stay in Naples, our hotel recommendations are listed by star rating, from 5-star luxury hotels to budget hotels, B&Bs, and hostels. Here’s our list to help you choose where to stay in Naples.
