“Hotel Ercolano”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

this hotel has no fire/smoke detectors, no fire safety instructions, no fire extinguishers, no fire fighting equipment and is a potential death trap in the the case of fire. Beds were camp beds, breakfast was minimal, fresh food left out until eaten, no tea/coffee making facilities, no lift. Just managed to obtain second cup of coffee at breakfast
Its just across the road from Herculaneum.

2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

Right outside the gates to Herculaneum. A 10 minute walk from the train station - Circumvesuvian - plenty of minibuses here to take tourists up to Vesuvius. We drove up very twisty road only to find parking was full so would recommend the minibus option. Very easy to get a train to Pompeii and also Sorrento and Naples.However Ercolano as a place is a suburb of Naples and on reflection we wish we had stayed in Sorrento! The hotel was disappointing although the room was very clean and spacious for 5 of us.It seemed be run by a couple of young men who spoke no English and made little attempt to communicate and to whom guests were a bit of an inconvenience. A couple of older men around who made more of an effort to smile! Great pressure to eat in the restaurant but it was too expensive for 5 of us we found a good little pizzeria next door which was much more affordable for family eating. Breakfast was not good - they seemed surprised that we requested fruit juice for the children and on both mornings had to go out and buy some.Had to wait ages for coffee to be brought to us . Generally the two young chaps were not very attentive or smiley. The hotel was not accepting cards and ATM machines in Ercolano were unpredictable. No parking for the hotel but you could park in the post office car park if you were lucky enough to find a space. Hotel situated at the junction of two roads so a constant cacophany of horns! Our room did have a working fridge which was useful for storing picnic supplies.
