Decumani Hotel de Charme is placed in a XVIII century’s palace, that used to be the residence of Cardinal Sisto Riario Sforza, the last Bishop of the Bourbon Kingdom of Naples who lived in that apartment for more than 30 years, from 1845 to 1877. Since he became Naples bishop, he was the last bishop of the “Two Sicilies Kingdom” and the first one in Italian Kingdom.
From its glorious past, today the building still keeps intact some beautiful structural elements, such as the wooden gate, large stairs, high ceilings with groin vaults and high wooden windows.
In the common areas of the hotel you can find typical Neapolitan tiled floors with ancient pieces of hand-painted “majolica”, a luxurious Baroque-style hall with painted ceiling and all walls covered with mirrors and golden stucco.
Moreover, in some rooms there are high ceilings with wood hand-painted rafters, groin vaults or coffered ceilings and precious period pieces of furniture.
