We planned to stay in Pompeii for 2 nights, we drove from Rome. When we got there, I was a little disappointed, according to booking.com the hotel is 1.5km to Pompeii Valley, believe me, ITS NOT. The hotel was in the middle of nowhere and I mean, literally nowhere. Apparently, the shortcut that was supposed to be "1.5km" through the old railway track is not close for public. Good thing was, we made the reservation for 1 night first (exactly for these kind of situations). Service was good, like many other Italian hotels. We checked out and book Hotel Diana. This hotel was much much nearer and walking distance everywhere. The price difference was 20 eur for 2 pax. My advise is stay near the city center if you only have a short time, its worth paying since we come all the way just to see the Mt.Vesuvius and Pompeii ruins.
