My first choice was another hotel we had stayed at in 2008, which was very close the town centre and cathedral, and a very short walk to the ruins, but rooms there were not available. The Hotel Pompei Resort was a little farther away from the ruins but still walkable. The Pompei Hotel Resort was very new with better facilities and free off-street parking. Staff was excellent. The breakfast was good. We were two couples, stayed two nights and had one dinner there which was good and reasonably priced. As it turned out, my second choice was very good and I would recommend staying here.
