We are glad to have you as our guest in the Palace of Cardinal Sisto Riario Sforza, the last Bishop of the Bourbon Kingdom of Naples, in the heart of the Decumans, just close to the majolica Cloister of Santa Chiara Church, the Veiled Christ and the Via dei Pastori. The Palace used to be the residence of the “God’s Servant” Sisto Riario Sforza for more than 30 years, from 1845 to his death in 1877. He was the last Bishop of “Two Sicilies Kingdom” and the first in Italy Kingdom. In historian scientists’ opinion, he seemed to be “a servant of God working for the salvation of souls”, too much “a priest” to be even “a politician”. Through his 33 years office, 3 Vesuvius eruptions and 4 pestilences happened: he took care himself of the victims to help directly his country’s people. He sold out all his riches and got indebted with the banker Rotschild for 12.000 (ducati) but the banker refused the repayment because of the deep admiration he fell for the Cardinal. In honour of this great personality we restaured his apartment, thinking about all the requirements of a charming and comfortable hotel. The common areas have a beautiful floor with old majolica pieces. The masterpiece of the structure is the wonderful XVIII century hall with ancient mirrors and golden stuccos, the best place to relax listening to classic music, having a tea or reading a book. The hall is suitable even for meetings and cultural national and international events. Most of the rooms have period furnitures and some fine architectural pieces, such as high ceilings with hand-painted wood rafters, groin vaults or coffer ceiling. All rooms offer the following standard facilities:Balcony;Parquet;Sound proofed windows;Air conditioning ;Safe deposit box;Minibar ;Flat screen TV LCD with free access to SKY Channels; Free high speed internet in Wi-Fi system (no cable);Direct phone in room and bathroom Big size shower or Jacuzzi tab;Hair dryer;TV/radio audio rediffusion in the bathroom; Slippers.

We would like you to think about Cardinal Sisto Riario Sforza’s residence as your own home, your luxurious house in Naples from which you can explore the Decumans enjoying the warm and colourful atmosphere that surrounds it. You will be able to have a full immersion tour of the city on foot: you are in the heart of the historical centre of Naples, in the heart of the Decumans, right in the centre of the town which was Greek first, and Roman afterwards. The choice of Naples for your holyday reveals the desire to immerse yourself in culture, history, art, Neapolitan way of living food, castles, traditions and picturesque “vicoli” (typical narrow popular streets) of our town. Santa Chiara Cloister, Gesù Nuovo Square, the Duomo Church, S. Domenico Maggiore Church, Spaccanapoli, S. Severo Chapel are just some of the places you can easily reach by a short walk, in less than 10 minutes from our hotel. Capri, Ischia and Procida Islands are reachable from the harbour Molo Beverello, far from the hotel just 10 minutes by foot. In about 1 hour or less, you can even reach the most important cultural and tourist attraction around Naples, such as Pompei, Ercolano, Sorrento, Positano, Amalfi, Caserta Royal Palace (the small “Versailles”) and Campi Flegrei, where you can find places famous for Greek and Latin mythology.
