We had a city break in Naples in Nov 2011 and stayed at this little gem. The hotel is situated on the upper floors of an old Napoli apartment building complete with polished wooden concierge 'booth' at the entrance and grand airy marble stairs (there's also a lift up to the hotel reception).
Staff were really friendly, the rooms were a fine size and we had one with a great view over the roof tops to the bay and the island of Capri out to sea. It also got plenty of sun which added to the holiday feel, despite it being Nov.
Bathroom was small but functional. Maybe if I'm being picky the shower curtain set-up could be better designed but, hey, it worked fine.
Breakfast was the usual continental fayre with great coffee as you'd expect in the spiritual home of Italian coffee.
All round, the hotel had a very relaxed, old-school feel about it, almost as if it hadn't changed since the 1940s, which we loved.
Location is great, away from the bustle of the centre in a rather chi-chi area with plenty of bars and restaurants a short walk away if you're not venturing into town. Lots of interesting second hand furniture shops in the neighbourhood too. And the metro station is a minute's walk away. Perfect.
We loved Naples and the Pinto-Storey just added to the charm of our stay there. Highly recommend.
