First of all I must say that reviewer "allcontinents4" is describing a different Hotel Palma!
This is the second year that we have stayed here and it is a superb hotel.
The location is perfect, the Pompeii Santuaria Circumvesuviana station is directly opposite. You fall out of the hotel into the station, plus the centre of Pompei life in Piazza Bartolo Longo, is less than 5 minutes walk away.
I cannot make any comment on all the rooms in the hotel because we have not stayed in all of them, but last year our room was very good and this year our room was excellent, spacious, airy, great views, large ensuite and plenty of fresh bed linen and towels (not frayed!).
When it comes to the reception staff, two we knew from last year but there were a couple of fresh faces. All were very friendly, quietly efficient, more than helpful when you needed it and spoke perfectly good English.
I suggest that people like "allcontinents4" learn a little Italian, there are plenty of websites around so make the effort.
All the other staff were very friendly and their knowledge of English varied but was always more than adequate and acceptable.
Breakfasts were superb, a typical Italian buffet type which really sets you up for the day.
The breakfast girls were very good, replacing anything which had run out and catering for differing coffees and, if you wanted, tea.
After a day's sightseeing there is a superb jacuzzi on the roof, you have just got to use it.
If you allow it, the staff here make you feel like friends, not mere guests.
It is difficult to describe Hotel Palma other than in superlatives and it fully deserves it's 4 star status
Next year will be our 4th year in Campania and we wil be returning to Hotel Palma because it is such a great place to use as a base for the whole region.
If I have not convinced you by now to stay at this hotel, I never will, but you will be missing something special
