The Decumani Hotel de Charme is housed in Palazzo Riario Sforza, a gorgeous noble building of XVIII century, which was the official residence of cardinal Sisto Riario Sforza, who served as the Archbishop of Naples from 1845 until his death.
In 2008 we opened the Decumani Hotel de Charme with the ambition to create a small hotel that captured the best of Naples giving our guests an intimate atmosphere full of charm and comfort. Our purpose has not diminished over the intervening years, this winter we spent time renovating our rooms to go one step further in making your stay a memorable experience.

In the city centre of Naples, “the largest open air museum worldwide” (UNESCO World Heritage inscription)
I won’t say another word about the beauties of the city and its situation, which have been described and praised often. As they say here, “Vedi Napoli e poi muori! – See Naples and die!” One can’t blame the Neapolitan for never wanting to leave his city, nor its poets singing its praises in lofty hyperboles: it would be wonderful even if a few more Vesuviuses were to rise in the neighbourhood. (Johann Wolfgang von Goethe)
Decumani Hotel de Charme enjoys a prime location in the historic center of Naples: thanks to its strategic position, it is really easy to reach plenty of outstanding attractions, still remaining away from the city chaos.
Visiting Naples’s historic center means traveling through twenty centuries of history. The design of its streets, piazzas, churches, monuments and public buildings and castles constitute a jewel box of artistic and historical treasures of exceptional importance, so much so that together, they earned their spot on the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1995.
Naples is also known for its food. Neapolitan cuisine has ancient historical roots that date back to the Greco-Roman period, which was enriched over the centuries by the influence of the different cultures that controlled Naples and its kingdom. Naples has the greatest number of accredited stars from the Michelin Guide of any Italian province.
One of the advantages to stay at the Decumani Hotel de Charme in Naples is to be able to visit all the major attractions of the surrounding areas during the day and then return “home”, to the Hotel, to splurge into the luxury of a comfortable, familiar and cheerful environment.
