We booked into this place on a spontaneous trip to Ercolano. It took a bit of finding (we were told 100 metres past Ercolano), but we kept walking until we eventually got there. The staff were welcoming, friendly and helpful, the sundeck was awesome and a brilliant place to end the day. We had a fantastic room and we really... More

Great place to base yourself for visiting the Roman sites of Naples. Very close to the entrance to Herculaneum and the circumvesuviana station. Clean, comfortable, and a decent Italian-style buffet breakfast. Would definitely be back.

Very late in posting this but in May 2013 on a driving holiday we had a most wonderful one night stay here. When you see the shops of Erkolano closed down and graffitti everywhere, you think twice about getting out of your car or walking around. That said the b and b I papirui was a gem. Once the doors...

We stayed only one night. Ercolano is a place to visit only for the excavation of Herculaneum. However I Papiri is a haven compared to the modern city. A nice terrace where you can relax with a bottle of wine. The room is big, but the bathroom is small, but just adequate. The landowner offered to drive us to the... More

Once you get inside the lovely old doorway, you are in a beautiful old building but with a clean and modern finish inside. The owners were very friendly, even though we did not speak Italian, and they even gave us a lift to the station early in the morning, as getting a taxi would be difficult. The breakfast was good...

We would not be in a rush to return to this B&B, despite a good central location close to train stations and the Scavi at Ercolano. The breakfast was a let-down, done on a tight budget with no fresh bread or worse still bad coffee. Having lived in Italy I am well used to Italian breakfasts and like them but... More

I Papiri is run by Leo and his wife. They make an excellent effort to help and service you. Though their English is rather poor, we got along quite well and they were always willing to advise. The Village of Ercolano is like most southern Italian villages: the very good opportunities to create a little paradise are suppressed by the... More

We only stayed one night at this hotel as it was a whistle-stop tour of Ercolano (the ruined part :). We arrived at the big green door but no one answered the bell but after a couple of phone calls a very friendly lady appeared and let us in. She was very welcoming and bade us onto the balcony for...

This is a difficult property to review. There's an initial shock when the taxi drops you in front of a huge green door in a pretty run down neighbourhood. Going into and up the first two flights of steps doesn't relieve this, but once through the front door, recent renovations reveal a depth of old world charm within. The proprietor... More
