“Great location but bad experience”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2011

The price was reasonable and great location. The staff were generally knowledgeable and friendly but in one case TOO friendly. I was travelling alone and stayed 2 nights and had a bad experience with one of the staff members. Note to women travelling alone - Find some where else.

we ended here by default but had such a great stay - Alfonso is a real example of Italian hospitality! the rooms are spacious and clean, the location is central, close to the station as well as to the ruines. lovely restaurant just around the corner. two days here made us feel as part of the locals!

We stayed here for two nights between a stay in Amalfi before heading on to Rome. It was very well priced, spotlessly clean and the staff were so friendly. Alfonso is a student of archeology and very knowledgable about the Pompeii Scavi ruins. My one regret is that we didn't have longer here - Pompei is lovely

The reception area is on the first floor,where you'll be warmly welcomed by either the owners or staff. This hotel is located in one of the chic quiet streets of Pompei, near the piazza,and a 12minute walk to the entrance to the Ruins in via Roma. The entrance to the Excavations at the Villa Dei Misteri is further walk, possibly 20mins. Each room has a bathroom,wardrobe tv, desk, comfortable bed/beds. The friendly owner,Fabio, has cleverly retained the spaciousness of the rooms by adding modular foldout beds which provide extra sleeping arrangements-ideal for families. Each well-lit room is smartly decorated in a theme from the Pompei Ruins.I found the continental breakfast more than adequate. Staff make delicious coffee.Fabio wants you to enjoy your stay so ask him about attractions.He now offers tours as well.Great value for money here.

We stayed here after enforced flight delay due to volcanic ash and cancelled flight. It was over priced at 70 euros per night per twin room. When we had stayed at Hotel Forum in Pompei for only 55 euros for 4 star accomodation. Breakfast was croissants and coffee - tasty but not a lot of choice! The rooms were basic and the net curtains were scruffy. It was noisy during the early hours of the morning - trucks and early morning traffic and noisy neighbours. Internet access only if you have your own laptop. Stay at Hotel Forum rather than here.

We are still at this hotel, but we are so impressed we decided to go ahead and sing its praises. The staff is amazing. Our son was dealing with a sour stomach. The staff -- despite the slight language barrier -- did a fantastic job in helping us secure and administer the proper medicine (No CVS, RiteAid, etc, here). They are very accommodating and nothing seems too difficult for them.

The initial price may seem a bit high, but the experience is worth every penny. If you travel with a family of four (2 adult, 2 children), you know how difficult it is to find a room in many European hotels. This hotel provides adequate space for every family member. We will definitely be staying here again in the future.

If you find yourself in Pompei, I highly recommend this hotel. The family running it really understands the meaning of customer service.

Tiny hotel with 7 rooms, ideal location 1 minute walk from the main square and about 5 to the ruins and the same to the train station.Very clean, comfy beds and very helpful pleasant staff where nothing is too much trouble despite the language barrier!.Downsides are the outside noises but later realised this didnt effect us because we were so tired each night with all the walking and the breakfast is only sweet options but overall it was a really welcome break after a days busy site seeing.
