... Sorrentini meal at the English Inn, and later walked down to the marina. Taking the winding trail down to the water, I thought I would switch it up and take them back up to Piazza Sant Antonino a different route. A route that happened to be gated off at the top… woops! Mom and Dad just laughed though, convinced it was a secret effort of mine and my sister’s to get them to exercise more.
On Tuesday I ...

Our mission in the historic centre is to find a few Christmas knick-knacks. This won’t be hard here as there are plenty to choose from, the problem is, which ones? Mum and Sean make easy work of their task and soon we are sitting under ...

Nearby her, the remains of a boy with mouth wide open - as if to be shouting or screaming in the most terrifying moment that would be his last.
Surrounding these remains were also countless artefacts that have been remarkably preserved much like the bodies, due to the lack ...

This place is everything we had heard, very picturesque and a photographer's paradise. There are some very exclusive hotels in the town centre, all with the most commanding views, the sheer rock walls, some a few hundred mtrs. high and then absolutely turquoise coloured waters at the bottom with small boats visible that ...

It was obviously not meant as a compliment but we didn't let it get to us though because we were on a pretty nice pizza high and were not gonna let someone ruin it. After finishing our meals we figured we should probably head out since the crowd outside was getting bigger so we grabbed our stuff and Jalyn went over to get a picture with the Julie Roberts poster in front of the kitchen.

Historical Traveler Reviews Pinto-Storey Hotel Naples
The Pinto Storey is located in a nice part of Naples, on the upper floors of a typical Neapolitan building.
I'm not sure what the last reviewer is talking about. The hotel was quite nice, especially for the price. The breakfast consisted of capucino or espresso or the like, fruit juice and very good croissant, all served to you. The people were quite helpful, including with my bag which was lost by the airline. The rooms are small, but nice with new bathrooms and some at least have little balconies, which is a nice touch. Overall, can't beat it for 120 Euro or so, but it's not fancy.
When I arrived at the "main hall" which is a narrow coop on the 5th floor of an old Naples building the receptionist didn't even bother to look up from his PC. Anyway, then they confiscated my passport until the end of my stay (wouldn't a credit card have been enough?), not asking if I might need it outside.
Pinto Storey hosts two stories of a beautiful old villa in the Chiaia district. The area is quiet and residential (compared to the buzzing surrounding ares), lots of excellent restaurants nearby, good public transportation as the hotel is very near Piazza Amedeo's underground, funicular up to Vomero and bus stops. We were not told hotel was under construction, this meant there were no common areas and reception was almost non-existent. Due to the construction works, breakfast was served to rooms: one coffee and one croissant per person and amount of coffee decreased on daily basis. We had french double and the room was tiny but clean and pleasant. Airconditioning available for extra charge. Showers were the best thing about this hotel. Staff spoke good English and were very friendly. Perhaps after the construction works this hotel will be very good value for money.
Good hotel in a nice area
We were a bit nervous about staying in Naples but chose to spend two nights at the Pinto Storey having read good reviews on Trip Advisor and it really was a gem! It's in a nice area of Naples, close to the Villa Communale and about 2 mins walk to metro station Piazza Amedeo and the Funicular to Vomero district. The hotel is on the 4th & 5th floors of a splendid old building. Our room was beautifully but simply decorated with good ensuite facilities inc a powerful shower and decent hair dryer! The hotel facilities - bar & restaurant - were being refurbished during our stay but we were hardly aware of this and the work was due to be completed by mid-July. The staff were very helpful and happy to recommend local restaurants etc.
Supser Stay in Naples for a Reasonable Price
The Hotel was very nice - our room was a nice size and the bathroom was the cleanest I saw in Italy!
The staff was very helpful - even ordering us Pizza after a long day in Capri!
The location is in the shopping district - so if you love to shop I highly recommend the location.
Naples is not the cleanest city, but it's great for shopping and very convienent for a day in Capri - which is a must see!
Having just spent a wonderful week at the Villa Lara in Amalfi, an few days in Naples was supposed to round off our break. What a disappointment with the Pinto Storey. Yes, they are refurbishing, No, they did not tell us about it when we booked or even when we checked in, and when we discovered there were NO facilities other than a room, they were rude, and even accused us of lying about what they advertised on their website! There was no apology, no offer of a reduction (though persistence on our part on this brought about a token gesture)
Immaculate, efficient and friendly
The hotel is well located, just around the corner from the Metro and buses, 10 mins walk from the sea front, in a quiet locationn. Our room was immaculate and very Italianate - wrought iron bedstead, table, tiled floor. Great view from our side balcony. Restauranst was being refurbished during our stay, but reception guided us to several excellent local restaurants, just around the corner. Staff very friendly, efficient and excellent English spoken.
I was very impressed with Hotel Pinto-Storey. Massimo and Hussein the front desk clerks were incredibly gracious. They had no problem with getting me a cap at 5am in order to get to the airport on time. The rooms are very clean, but don't expect American size rooms of course.
