“Careful reading the English menu”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

This hotel felt like 4 stars from the moment we were greated at the curb and assisted with our bags. Very nice decor. Careful with the menu. "Scallops"are/is actually veal scaloppini. They weren't very understanding when I tried to explain the difference. To their defense it was listed under meat. Breakfast was pretty good.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

We chose this hotel because of location (next to Pompeii Station) and star rating.
We were on a family break to see the ruins and surrounding area.
The hotel is clean and well staffed, the staff are polite and very helpful. The room was clean and well maintained during out stay, we only had a shower but that was very nice (old but good). Breakfast was the only meal we had each day in the hotel and was continental and OK. The ruins are a 10 minutes stroll from the door, and from the station you can reach either Naples or Sorrento in 30 minutes, as well as the other ruin sites.
Pompeii was by far the best town we visited, clean and great shops, lots of restaurant's, English menus, friendly staff.

I would recommend this hotel for a short stay in the area. The location is fantastic for easy access to archaeological sites and parking is free. There is internet and the roof terrace is lovely.
The only negative is the breakfast - which is pretty poor. You can get eggs and a cappuccino but you need to ask...

3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

Had read lots of reviews on this hotel so was very disappointed with this 4 star hotel. It felt like we were an inconvenience to the staff for being there. The room had damaged pealing paint to the ceiling and the bathroom looked like it needed to be revamped but was meant to be to a Superior room. The room also had a funny smell to it and was offered another room but this also had pealing paint and was very dark. We did have a view of Vesuvius but were right next to the railway station and roundabout so was quite noisy. There was no mention of the sauna etc being open and didn't look like it was ready for use. We stayed three nights which was too long for this hotel. The breakfast was limited and on the third day consisted of stale cake and we had to ask for cheese and ham to go with the rolls. More of a three star hotel.

Only plus side to this hotel is the location to the ruins and bus for Vesuvius being only 10 minutes away.

We've just returned from Pompei after 3 days crammed with site seeing. The Hotel Palma was our choice of hotel. It was ideally situated for the station which is opposite enabling us to catch the train to other local sights and also a visit to Sorrento. The hotel was is walking distance of the town and the ruins. We spent the whole day there so returning to the hotel in the evening after walking all day was much appreciated as it was so close.
The hotel itself was clean, well presented and the staff were helpful. It was not busy, however the restaurant was not open every evening. Eating out was not a problem as there were many eateries close by.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012

We booked hotel Palma the day before arrival, purely because of it's proximity to the ruins. The rooms were very nice and clean, although some of the windows were so high up you couldn't see out of them....The staff were very friendly (they even drove round town to find us when we got lost upon arrival) and the food was excellent. There were a couple of powercuts while we were there, but they were fixed very quickly! We did hear some of the staff arguing quite loudly a couple of times, but it didn't really affect our holiday. The location is very good for the ruins, although Pompeii itself is not the nciest town in the world (having said that though, the hotel is still in a good location). Regarding a previous review...it is common for hotels in Italy to take passports off of all of the guests. This is perfectly normal. Also, the metal shutters on the windows are to stop the heat, so the rooms don't get too hot (Pompeii is VERY warm). They have nothing to do with safety.
