The new hotel was the height of luxury and elegance and immediately became an important stop for international tourists arriving in Naples. Two years after its inauguration, the hotel hosted Queen Victoria of Sweden and her personal doctor, Axel Munthe, already a writer of some repute. In 1885 Guy de Maupassant stayed at the hotel. The great French writer described his impressions of the city in bold terms: "the people gesticulate, and the way they drive is always a little wild: these people make the city so colourful and unique! Women and girls with pink and green dresses, wrapped in red, blue and other.
