“lovely and great location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2014

Just 50 meters from the train station, across the street from a great grocery, short blocks from terrific local restaurants and shopping, and a lovely short walk through the town piazza takes you to the back door of ancient Pompei. The rooms were decorated in local themes, we had the lovely Pompei room with copies of frescoes on the walls and a charming balcony. Our fellow traveler had the Capri room in soft blues and mediterranean artwork. We were there in Dec. so missed out on a terrace breakfast, but our gracious host, Salvatore, served us our selected menu in our rooms each morning. He was incredibly helpful pointing out restaurants, nearby sites, and travel directions. We recommend this hotel to couples and families. Our room had bunk beds besides a comfortable queen. Be sure to stay over in New Pompei so that you have lots of time to explore the ancient city.

Room Tip: the front rooms have lovely balconies

Salvatore provided a lovely, warm and informative welcome to the City. He provided us with a lot of important information of how to spend our time within Pompei, giving us tips of excellent places to eat as well as the best way to visit our desired attractions.He also provided us with a wonderful breakfast on his beautiful roof top garden each morning, with his individually artistic Cappucinos.

For the price that we paid, the room was definitely excellent value with great furnishings and tidily presented. Would definitely recommend it.

Grazie!!

We stayed at the Dolcevitta for one night. We booked 2 rooms ( one for my parents and one for me and my wife). Salvattore, the owner, received us in a very symphatic way and treated us very well.
Positive points - Rooms are clean, with air conditioning, good restroom and decent matress. Location is excellent, close to all touristic points. Parking only 5 Euros/overnight and 10 minutes walking from the Dolcevitta.
Negative points - no elevators, so if you have big or several lugagges, you`ll have difficuties in the access. Breakfast was very poor and breakfast amenities are improvised in the solarium. If it rains, you may have to skip your breakfast.
In general was a pleasant stay.

We spent a night in the B&B Dolcevita and the B&B completely lived up to our expectations.
The owner, Salvatore, was simply great! Extremely nice and helpful, he was honestly the best part of the B&B. He gave us so many recommendations and advices about Pompei and its surroundings. Thumbs up to him!
For the rest, the B&B had all what you would expect from a B&B. Quiet and clean room, very good breakfast, and ideal location (very close to the staition and walking distance to the Scavi and square for bus departures to the Vesuvius).
In a few words I would say that B&B Dolcevita is an excellent value for money.

Room Tip: Ask for the quiet room which is not on the street.

Salvatore was very helpful and came twice to fix a very loud, running toilet - once late at night. He gave us very good restaurant recommendations. The room was right on the main road and very noisy! Other rooms are not on that road. The room was small and was not real clean, the breakfast so-so. There is no elevator and all the rooms are upstairs. If you want to walk to the archeological site this place is close enough. The small grocery across the street made us fresh sandwiches and we bought water and a few other things to take in our back pack for lunch at the site.

Room Tip: Reserve a room away from the main street.

Had the pleasure of a 5 night stay recently. Everything was even better than we expected it to be. The main window in our particular room (Capri) was on the small side but we were not there to sit around looking out of the window, so no big issue. As a place to stay it has everything going for it, even a fridge in the kitchen to chill your bubbly!
Wifi was available, the aircon was great, the bed one of the most comfortable and street noise levels low.
Salvatore and everyone else we met were just great and contributed to the quality of our stay. In fact Pompeii is probably the friendliest place we've stayed in Italy and we've done a few.

Don't let the entrance fool you. Once you go upstairs and see the rooms you will be happily surprised. The rooms are neat and tidy and spacious. Salvatore, the owner, is such a friendly guy. He is very helpfull and will point you in the right directions you need to go to. The day of the arrival you fill in the breakfast form and Salvatore will bring you the breakfast that you choose on the terrace on the roof. And he makes the best cappuccino (we have to add the part that we normally don't fancy coffee) So he did a really good job. Even when we checked out he gave us a lot of pointers for the rest of our trip. Seriously this is a wonderfull B&B that will exceed your expectations! Thank you Salvatore for making it feel like a home away from home.
