B&B Pompei Welcome
Ranked #2 of 56 Pompeii B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 7, 2013

If you're going to Pompeii, do yourself a favor and stay there rather than Naples. We stayed at B&B Welcome for one night in late June and had a wonderful experience. It's only a short walk from the Pompeii vesuviana station (note: this is the station for the main city, NOT the 'Pompeii Scavi' station on the Sorrento line. So if coming from Naples you'll need to take the line toward Poggiomarino). The rooms are simple but quite spacious, and Rosaria and her family are very charming. They are all born and raised in Pompeii, so you will have a very authentic Campania experience. Breakfast was full of homemade back goods and nice Italian meats, and you sit outside in a cozy courtyard. Plus, Rosaria gave us some of her homemade limoncello. Yum! The walk to the ruins was only about 10-15 minutes, and it's on the less-crowded, less touristy side so it's very easy to get in. Finally, when leaving Rosaria's son, Salvadore, kindly gave us a ride to the Scavi station so that we could continue our journey to Sorrento.

The only negative I can really think of is that the hotel is on Pompeii's busiest road, so there is quite a bit of car traffic all night. If you have earplugs you might want to wear them, although things die down late at night.

Room Tip: Ask to see all of the rooms. If you are the only one (or at the least the first ones there) you'...

This is a tough call to review. The owners could not have been more pleasant, at one point even driving us to the Pompei preserve. Breakfast was good, with home-baked items from the woman of the house, a teacher of English to elementary students (her husband and son do not speak English).

We are not certain if the part of the property we stayed in had a shared bath because we were the only ones there and had the bath to ourselves. We did not notice another bath, but perhaps they were inside the other rooms.

The hotel is on a busy street and although they have their own parking area, it is difficult to maneuver in and out. We had to park on the sidewalk across the street when we arrived because it is not clear where their parking area is.

The hotel is a long walk to the Pompei preserve and if you are carrying camera gear it would be better to hire a taxi.

The room was small, the bed not very comfortable and the sheets of poor quality. Still, the overall experience was positive. There are some wonderful restaurants in Pompei, but like many Italian towns, on the walk to and from there is a lot of litter.

We stayed for 3 nights here, the owner and her family were lovely, friendly people and tried hard to communicate even with their limited english and our very limited italian. Made a welcoming change from other people we had met in Italy, who overall are quite rude, arrogant people (from our experience). Only issues were the shower in the double room is a bit erratic(goes hot, then cold frequently) and a strange clicking coming from the wall which made it a bit hard to sleep occasionally. Very clean, comfortable bed, close to town and excavation site. 5 min walk to train station, which takes you to Naples, Sorrento etc. If we were to return to Italy, we would stay here again. Highly recommend.

Room Tip: All rooms are large, spacious and clean. The owner showed us them all which was nice of her :-)

We stayed for two nights in this charming B&B. The location is excellent and the hostess was very welcoming and helpful regarding local buses and places to eat etc (and as one of the other reviews says you can come and go as you please and breakfast time is flexible). Reasonable selection of food for breakfast. Our room was clean and spacious and the bathroom also clean with a modern shower. We would stay here again if visiting Pompeii and recommend it to others.

We stayed here for one night in early June.

The hostess was very welcoming, and provided us with good information, and a lovely breakfast.

We slept in a room at the back of the building, which possibly was quieter than rooms on the other side, adjacent to a quite busy street. However, there is a larger room there with bunk beds, which could suit a family.

We thoroughly recommend staying here if you are in Pompeii.

We stayed in this B&B just one night. Very clean room with big bed in the huge room! Perfest location and very friendly owners without strict rules about breakfast and check-out time! Parking place near to B&B. Maybe just one small minus - some cars driving in the night on the street near the house.

I'm glad I decided to ignore what Lonely Planet said about staying in Pompeii... it makes it sound like some kind of seedy gangland or something... couldn't be further from the truth, plus I would have been EXHAUSTED if I had to take the train from and back to Napoli after walking all over the ruins all day, which are way more extensive than I imagined.

The B&B is perfectly nice, and a bonus: the wifi ACTUALLY works in the rooms. And it's fast. (This is NOT always the case in European budget type places.)
