“Superb hotel but.....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013

We stayed here for one night and had booked it on the basis of reviews on this website.
It is well placed for the Pompeii ruins and a trip up Vesuvius. We had room 49 which overlooks the street. Great for people watching. The room was great but for 1 small negative point. The bathroom although looking spotless was let down by the fact that the base of the shower door where it meets the bath had not been properly cleaned in a long time and an unpleasant crust of old soap and mould had built up around that area. If management address this issue then they have a great hotel. Staff great and food great. Would have scored a 5 but for the bathroom issue.

Room Tip: We liked the room overlooking street but it may not suit everyone because of traffic noise

My husband and I stayed at the Forum for one night. The hotel is in a good location, though a longer walk from the train station if you have luggage. Close to the ruins, restaurants and shops.
The room was okay; bed comfortable and overall, clean. The bathroom was a bit old and cramped but mostly, we had a very unpleasant smell in the bathroom (we kept the door closed and ran the fan the whole time we were there).
Service was good. Included breakfast was okay.

Room Tip: We had a room with a very little balcony, which was nice to sit on at the end of the day.

This hotel is in a great location, just 15 mins walk to the main entrance of the ruins. The hotel itself is quite immaculate. It has a beautiful garden area with music playing and the lobby and breakfast area, as well as the dining area are all very modern and well maintained. The breakfast was lovely and again, very well presented. The one thing that let the hotel down was the fact that the bedroom that we had was quite outdated and needed modernising. It was fine for 1 night but could have done with some TLC. Other than that, I would definately recommend this hotel. The staff very very friendly and helpful too. Plus there is an amazing ice cream parlour just a few doors down - it has every ice cream flavour imaginable!!

The Hotel Forum is directly across from the less busy entrance to the ruins...really...directly across the street. We were able to stay in the ruins until closing time, leisurely wandering alone in the least touristy sections. This makes the ruins a remarkable experience. The hotel is beautifully decorated, has a lovely breakfast room, an elegant breakfast and a courtyard that is amazingly quiet. The staff was very attentive. We also used public transportation to go to Positano the second day of our stay. Yes, the town of Pompeii at night is devoid of charm, and although we found a really excellent pizza spot, the restaurant scene was strictly for tourists, but for the proximity of the sites, the elegance of the service and the pure wonder of being in Pompeii I do recommend the Hotel Forum.

A good location to visit the ruins of Pompeii. Very near to everything, shops, restaurants, churches and supermarkets. Really a pleasant boutique hotel, breakfast was very good.
Hotel staff courteous. Place is a little small.

Fabulous Hotel, wonderful staff, a view of Vesuvius and the Pompei Ruins from our balcony, lovely atriums and gardens to relax in, we loved it :0) we stayed for 2 nights and spent the whole day at the ruins which we highly recommend, we arrived at 10am and left at closing, 7pm, after covering 3/4's of the Ruins! Breakfast was good and we ate 1 evening meal at the hotel which was very good. We are already planning our next trip and will definitely stay at the Hotel Forum again :0) thank you to the Management and staff!

Lovely friendly hotel. We stayed 1 night in a quadruple room with boys 14 and 11. Room wasn't huge but was clean and perfect for our needs. Wifi was a bonus having been in Rome for 4 nights without! Free carparking and 5 minute walk to the ruins. Lovely meal in the gardens in the evening. Friendly staff. Good buffet breakfast in airy lower ground room. Would recommend highly.
