The Foria House B&B

Via Foria, 153 , Naples, 80137 Italy (Show map)

About

We walked into this abandoned, run-down, 18th century apartment and immediately knew it was the spot we were looking for. Each square inch seemed stuffed with a story to tell, and we wanted to hear it (or maybe tell it). Staring up into the building's atrium, you can see the wrinkles of this two-hundered-year-old edifice. The stairwell made of vulcanic piperno stones have been slowly rubbed and softened, as if they were made of butter. As you walk into the apartment, you can feel its origins: high ceilings, granite cement tiles, scrap-marble flooring, wide open rooms leading one into the next without hallways. Our design ethos: keep it original. Many of the furnishings were taken from the house itself and given a second life. Old windows and doors became headboards. Extra floor tiles were framed on the walls as "art". Furniture from the ex printing press were up-cycled and put to good use. The end product is one of a kind, but easy to enjoy. And then, the cherry on top: Hidden behind a rusty old gate is a quiet pocket of peaceful respite. The private back yard is like a time warp away from the city madness. Barbecue, bird feeders and lemon trees in downtown Naples? Really? Really.

Rooms & Rates

Garden View Quadruple

One king-size bed and two single beds on top of the mezzanine. The window looks out onto the garden and the bathroom is big enough for a yoga session. Fancy-free style to let our guests sit back and unbutton it all. TV and air conditioning obviously. Enough space to gather your thoughts before heading out to explore the city.

  • Maximum Capacity: 4
  • Bathroom Private Bath
  • Beds 1 King , 2 Twin

Nightly Rate: EUR 70 - EUR 100

Garden View Family Suite

Ahhhh. Space. Light. This is our best room. Sleeps five but if you wanted to, you could comfortable in 10! The high, white ceilings give you that sense of openness. Step out onto the patio and open the massive window that peers over the garden. If you stretch your hand out, you could even pick your own fresh oranges for breakfast! In the spring time, the mimosa tree fills the room with warm reflections.

  • Maximum Capacity: 5
  • Bathroom Private Bath
  • Beds 1 King , 3 Twin

Nightly Rate: EUR 80 - EUR 110

Deluxe Quadruple

This room was renovated using all the discarded doors and windows found inside the abandoned apartment when we signed the lease. High ceilings with tons of light coming in from the 10ft-tall windows which look out onto Via Foria. When you step out onto the balcony, you can look down the historic road and really get a taste of Naples life. Standard set with one king size bed and two single beds. One of the single beds can be removed to make space for a little living area if requested.

  • Maximum Capacity: 4
  • Bathroom Private Bath
  • Beds 1 King , 2 Twin

Nightly Rate: EUR 60 - EUR 90

Spacious Triple

We tried to preserve what was there when we arrived. The hexagonal tiles are the same 1800's flooring from when the building was built. Local wood works and furnishings were purchased from neighborhood artisan and, with a little touch of our own, let you understand that we don't take ourselves too seriously. The 10ft-tall balcony window lets in tons of light while keeping out the noisy city. If you step out onto the balcony, "the noble balcony" as it was considered before elevators were invented, you can catch a taste of how real neapolitan life carries on.

  • Maximum Capacity: 3
  • Bathroom Private Bath
  • Beds 1 King , 1 Twin

Nightly Rate: EUR 55 - EUR 85

About the innkeepers

After opening our first B&B in Napoli, we were eager to start our second. Once you start working with tourism in Napoli, it's only a matter of seconds before you quit your day job and devote yourself full time in this business. And that is exactly what we did!
