The name juxtaposes a 19th-century Englishman who fell in love with Naples with a certain Signora Pinto; together they went on to establish this hotel that overflows with warmth and charm. Its late-19th-century (but fully renovated) decor makes you feel like a character in a period movie, with photographs of 1953 Naples contributing to the atmosphere. The simple, airy guest rooms are on the fourth and fifth floors of an elegant building off the chic Piazza Amedeo. They are always in demand, so book far in advance.

My husband and I stayed here in November 2000. The hotel is in the Chiara area, close to Bay, shopping, away from crowded city center but close enough to walk. Our room was huge but bathroom inadequate--shower stall very tiny.
