Hotel Chiaia or Palazzo Turchini in Naples ??

We have taken several RS tours and will be doing Best of Sicily and South Italy in April 2016. The final hotel for the South Italy tour was to be Hotel Chiaia. We reserved 2 additional nights there since we would be extending the trip. Just received an email from RS notifying us the final hotel in Naples will now be Palazzo Turchini.
Would love feedback on either hotel. Wondering whether we should make a change for the additional 2 night stay.
Thank you, Teressa

tess,

I haven't stayed at Palazzo Turchini but have stayed at Hotel Chiaia and would absolutely recommend it. As I recall, it's located in the same building as an Embassy, and a great location close to both Piazza Trieste e Trento (where the wonderful Gran Caffe Gambrinus is located) and also Piazza Plebiscito. The hotel is extremely comfortable (hope they still provide slippers) and the staff are fantastic.

You'll find lots of reviews of these two places on TripAdvisor. I actually posted the links here, but they were deleted. Guess RS feels a bit threatened by TA these days?
