What is the history of the property?
The Eurostars Hotel Excelsior 4* is a 20th century palace located in Santa Lucia, on the coast of Naples, on land reclaimed from the sea in the 19th century, after the unification of Italy.

Its origins lie with the Swiss business family Kraft, who built the hotel on Via Partenope.

Since the Zurich-based Hotel Enterprises signed the contract to purchase the land, the Excelsior was designed, built and furnished in just two years. It officially opened its doors to the public at the end of January 1908, after being built in the record time of ten months.

Members of the nobility and personalities from all over the world were present at the inauguration. It became operational in 1909, and its architect Emil Vogt also built the Excelsior hotels in Rome and Florence.

The Excelsior served as the Presidium of the Red Cross during World War I and was bombed during World War II, first as a hospital and then as headquarters for American troops.

The bombing in August 1943 caused serious damage to the building, which was taken over by Ciga Hotels in 1935. After the war, it was rebuilt with the addition of a floor and a complete renovation of the interior. It reopened in 1947 without any alterations to the exterior, as the "Ritz" style sought by the architect Vogt was to remain unchanged.
What was the era and/or the architectural style in which the property was built?
Each room in the hotel is unique, furnished with antiques that create a fin de siècle atmosphere. This elegance reaches its climax in the Royal Suite, whose walls are covered with silk from San Leucio and adorned with precious engravings. The Venetian wardrobe, like the other furniture, remains unchanged, hand-painted and trimmed with gold sequins. On an antique table rests an embellished mirror crowned with a golden eagle.
