Today it is known as a structure of great prestige framed by the extraordinary beauty of the Bay of Naples.

On the Floor Museum Gio Ponti you can stay in one of the 24 rooms with wooden furnishings and fixtures designed specifically for the Hotel by Ponti. Suspended furniture, three-drawer chests with feet, and magazine racks and lamps in satin brass integrated into headboards from briar have made the history of Italian design. In stunning New York style, the Roof on the tenth floor, from which the beautiful view of the ancient Borgo Marinari and the legendary Castel dell'Ovo can be enjoyed, presents the one of a kind sea-water pool designed by Gio Ponti, published in 1954 on the cover of Domus.

Dependant on route & traffic the distance is 9 Kms - 15 Kms & travel time would be 15 mins - 25 mins & there are taxi ranks outside the airport & to the side of the hotel. If you have any further questions please just ask.
