“Great hotel, great location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014

Great find in Pompei - 5 minutes walk from the station and bus stop; 15 minutes walk to the ruins. Staff were extremely friendly and informative. Room was clean, small but comfortable. The garden out the back was a real treat: lined with orange trees, we enjoyed refreshing cocktails there after a strenuous afternoon at the ruins (that are absolutely fantastic, though sadly neglected due to lack of funding). When we took the train to Herculenaeum the following morning, our two friends stayed behind and enjoyed a peaceful morning reading in the garden. This is a generational family run hotel - not luxurious but more than adequate for a stop over in Pompei to visit the ruins.

Very cheap....100 Euros per night, for a four bed room (with bunks for children) - stayed one night on our way to Rome to visit Pompeii ruins.

Super friendly staff and great coffee in the morning....nice terrace garden for late evening wine pre-bed. Excellent position close to the ruins, and highly recommended if you are on a budget or there for just a night.... free parking also available. Great pizzeria close by called pizza&pasta (pizza E pasta in some guides).

We were a party of 7, ranging from 11 to 88 years old so we had diverse requirements to say the least. We had two ground level family rooms which suited us perfectly. Granny had the large bathroom with the shower seat and handrails for the loo, with bunk beds for the two youngest. We were right next door in a triple room. It was just a short walk for us to the quiet courtyard where Granny spent the morning whilst we went exploring. The staff (especially Aurora) were kind and very friendly and kept her topped up with coffee in our absence. The rooms are a little dull (yellow wash on the walls) but clean and cool, and a good size.
There is an excellent restaurant 20 yards from the Hotel but BOOK IN ADVANCE as it is very popular with the locals. Go early - before 8 - if you want a table.

The main entrance to Pompeii is a good 25 min walk away which is pleasant but quite a hike in the heat. The secondary entrance is much closer - 10 mins away- and the Amphitheatre is right by the entrance. We chose to go in the main one in the morning, come out for lunch and then go in the second entrance later in the day. The tickets don't allow re-entry but the tickets are E11 per adult and free for U18 - great value when you consider a visit to Vesuvius is E10 per adult and E8 for a child over 5!!

We only stayed for a night but it was amazing. After spend the day at the historic site (right in front of the hotel), we took a shower and went downstairs for a pizza and some wine. It was a warm night and their restaurant with tables in the garden is amazing.
I will always remember the Neapolitan pizza and the fruit Macedonia I had there.
Lovely place to stay even knowing that the room is not outstanding.

This was our third stay at Hotel Diana, Pompeii. We would now not stay anywhere else in the town or the area. The young staff are outstandingly welcoming, friendly but never obsequious, helpful, full of humour and good advice. The rooms are very pleasant, especially the ground floor room with its private secluded balcony; the breakfast is copious and served once again by courteous, considerate staff. The location is ideal: right in the centre of town and 2 minutes from the main train station, but in a quiet, secluded cul-de-sac, so no local noise at night. Even the venerable owner/boss is in attendance, keeping her sharp eye on all that's going on, and making sure that her guests are happy and well looked after. It is the best, and we recommend it wholeheartedly. (Couldn't grade swimming pool or fitness centre because they don't exist, but why would they, in a delightful bijou hotel like this?)

Room Tip: Room 5 is the one on the ground floor with a private balcony!

The Hotel Diana may be the number one rated hotel in Pompei, but having stayed nowhere else, I have nothing to compare it to and the rating seems a bit high. That said, this is a solid enough property located at a bit of distance (but certainly walkable) from the ruins. In fact, it's kind of a plus to be away from the more touristy area. And the Diana's courtyard is a wonderful reprieve -- another plus.The breakfast is typical but in a large comfortable room and with plenty of variety. Our room -- on the main floor -- was clean but spartan. The whole hotel is rather fresh and modern in a spare way. It was far from the most comfortable bed we've slept in, though, and the walls are paper thin. One night the guys in the room next door were boisterous and way over the top. I was about to call the desk, but then the noise stopped (it was after midnight) so I figure someone else must have called. That's not necessarily the fault of the hotel, and thin walls are common everywhere, but it did reflect on our experience. Outside noise was also prevalent. But the bottom line is that everything worked fine (wifi and a/c too), the parking was free and convenient, the staff helpful, the room clean, and the common patio a real plus. Oh, and the restaurant on the corner at the end of the street is well worth trying.
