ABOUT US

The bed & breakfast

La Smorfia bed&breakfast is located on the third floor of an XVIIIth century building in Via Santa Maria di Costantinopoli 30. The facility is served by an elevator on the floor.

The baroque palace, with its magnificent staircase and courtyard, inspired the name of the residence. In fact at the main entrance, where you can still see the original stables, the watering stand for horse carriages is still preserved, overlaid by the mocking face of a mask.

From there comes the immediate connection with the Neapolitan “smorfia”, an ancient local method of choosing lottery numbers through the interpretation of dreams that gives specific numbers to events, people, animals and objects.

The furniture is a mix&match of ancient and modern styles with a partial recovery of original materials and decorations by Giuseppe Di Dodo, artist and perfect interpreter of the spirit of la “smorfia”.

Enjoy a unique atmosphere in the heart of Naples at b&b “La Smorfia”, opened in 2017 with the aim of making your stay in town special and unforgettable.

History

B&b “La Smorfia” is located in a street named after the Church of the Holy Lady of Costantinople just outside the ancient pattern of cardines and pre-christian decumani, delimiting the historical center of Naples, which is the largest in Europe and Unesco Heritage since 1995.

The upper and most ancient decumano starts from Via Costantinopoli with Via della Sapienza.

The road map dates back to viceroy Don Pedro de Toledo, who started an important urban expansion plan of Naples during the XVIth century; the original project was to join the street with the Gate of Costantinopoli that was demolished in 1852.

On the Via Costantinopoli there are valuable churches and monuments: Convento di Sant’Antonio a Port’Alba, Palazzo Firrao (XVII secolo), Palazzo Castriota Scanderbeg,(XVI secolo), Palazzo Spinelli di Fuscaldo (XVII secolo),  Basilica di Santa Maria della Sapienza (XVI secolo),  Chiesa di San Giovanni Battista delle Monache (XVII secolo), l’Accademia di Belle Arti and Palazzo de Horatiis

Today it’s home to shops, antique booksellers, restaurant and local business.
