This is a delightful hotel set back from the Via Roma with its own outdoor restaurant area under a ceiling of grape vines and lemon and citron trees - an oasis in the center of Pompei. The staff were charming and went out of their way to be helpful. The room spacious with free wifi. The included breakfast was great.... More

Hotel forum was an amazing find on booking.com in march when I was planning summer hols. Right on the street for Pompeii ruins but do far off the road it is like a oasis for the weary traveller. Where to start, excellent reception staff, day and night, beautiful grounds, lovely breakfast room and food choices. Room was just big enough... More

We were a little disappointed when we past the hotel from the street but once we walked in the driveway we were pleasantly surprised. Very clean rooms. Great location within walking distance of the Pompeii ruins. Enjoyed sitting in the backyard under the lemon trees.

We chose this hotel based on other reviews on Trip Advisor, and weren't disappointed! Just a couple of minutes walk from one of the entrances to the site, and car parking close by. We only stayed one night, having travelled across from our fortnight's holiday rental in Puglia. It was quite easy to find the hotel, and being set back... More

We stayed at Hotel Forum for 2 nights last month. It is literally right across the street from the ruins.It doesn't look like much from the front of the building but there's an oasis inside. Beautiful yard with outdoor restaurant seating and also lounge area. Staff were very helpful and spoke decent English. We had a superior room which was... More

I stayed in this hotel for three weeks and was very happy here. The location is ideal for visiting the ruins and we were only about 10/15 minute walk from the train station which was handy as I travelled from Naples airport to Pompeii by train. The hotel itself was very clean and there was no noise from outside so... More

I booked this place based on trip advisor reviews. The staff was very friendly and helpful and the room was fantastic. It was in the new section of the hotel and was so flash all the lights work from an electronic keypad. We had a balcony with a table and chairs above their lovely garden - I sat out there... More

I have just returned from the most wonderful holiday. I stayed at the Forum Hotel, just across the street from the Pompei excavations and felt so at home. From Marika and her fellow desk members to the loveliest kitchen staff you ever met, I felt so welcome and pampered. There is nothing they wont do to make your visit memorable... More

Agree with previous reviews of this hotel, good location but not what we would consider 4 stars. Rooms are small and hotel facilities basic, but staff very friendly. Ideal location for Pompei ruins, but little else to do in the area. Restaurant gardens are beautiful and food good. Would recommend for a short break.
