“Close to Ruins”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

We appreciated the fact that this hotel was a 10-15 minute walk to the Pompeii ruins. The owners were very nice and let us keep our car in the private parking while we toured the ruins even though we had already checked out. Breakfast wasn't great being some fruit and a prepackaged croissant. Beds were fairly comfortable, room was good size as was the bathroom but mosquitoes in our room ate us up.

We stayed at B&B Elena for one night due to a change in our itinerary. It was very convenient as we were only 100 metres or so (walking distance) to the gates of Pompeii. Our rooms were all we neededwith ensuite. Clean and tidy. The service was great and we had a special discount for a meal at the local restaurant. A great experience and would highly recommend this accommodation. We had parking and were llowed to keave our car while we looked around the ruins of Pompeii. A continental breakfast was included. Super value.

This family run place provides what you would expect, but much more. They went out of their way to help me with a cab driver who overcharged me(cabs are the worst transportation option)
And they were concerned for my well being. I only know English...no problem, the location is perfect, clean, flowers, food, go and stay there and tell 'em Glenn sent you!

Room Tip: Ask! Tell them what you want...don't be shy or assume...

We had a really great time in Pompei and thanks to B&B Elena we had a good place to stay. We were the first booking on booking.com:)
The B&B is 5 minutes walk from Pompei Center and the rear entrance of the Scavi. The train station is 10 minutes walking distance. The breakfast was traditional italian. The B&B is familiar. They gave us a lift to the train station with our big luggage! We really suggest to book this place if you go to Pompeii!

I had a wonderful time staying at B&B Elena. Dario and his father Alfonso were so kind and helpful and made me feel very safe and comfortable. I was travelling on my own and they helped me with everything I needed. The terrace smells of beautiful jasmine, the room was nice and clean, and it is a very convenient location near the Carrefour supermarket, entrance to the ruins and train station. I would definitely recommend this B&B to anyone who wants a nice stay in Pompeii.

We stayed two nights at this wonderful Bed and Breakfast, the staff was more than kind and helpful. They treated us like family, awesome experience ! The Ruins of Pompeii are just a few minutes away walking. It's also extremely close to the Modern Pompeii centre, the train station and metro the connects you to Naples and Sorrento. Location was superb, extremely clean and I couldn't have ask for better service, they went above and beyond. I will definitely stay here again when visiting the Amalfi Coast and the Island of Capri. Thanks guys, you made are trip exceptional !
