“Perfect location for a short stay in Pompei”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

We spent a night in the B&B Dolcevita and the B&B completely lived up to our expectations.
The owner, Salvatore, was simply great! Extremely nice and helpful, he was honestly the best part of the B&B. He gave us so many recommendations and advices about Pompei and its surroundings. Thumbs up to him!
For the rest, the B&B had all what you would expect from a B&B. Quiet and clean room, very good breakfast, and ideal location (very close to the staition and walking distance to the Scavi and square for bus departures to the Vesuvius).
In a few words I would say that B&B Dolcevita is an excellent value for money.

Room Tip: Ask for the quiet room which is not on the street.

Salvatore was very helpful and came twice to fix a very loud, running toilet - once late at night. He gave us very good restaurant recommendations. The room was right on the main road and very noisy! Other rooms are not on that road. The room was small and was not real clean, the breakfast so-so. There is no elevator and all the rooms are upstairs. If you want to walk to the archeological site this place is close enough. The small grocery across the street made us fresh sandwiches and we bought water and a few other things to take in our back pack for lunch at the site.

Room Tip: Reserve a room away from the main street.

Had the pleasure of a 5 night stay recently. Everything was even better than we expected it to be. The main window in our particular room (Capri) was on the small side but we were not there to sit around looking out of the window, so no big issue. As a place to stay it has everything going for it, even a fridge in the kitchen to chill your bubbly!
Wifi was available, the aircon was great, the bed one of the most comfortable and street noise levels low.
Salvatore and everyone else we met were just great and contributed to the quality of our stay. In fact Pompeii is probably the friendliest place we've stayed in Italy and we've done a few.

Don't let the entrance fool you. Once you go upstairs and see the rooms you will be happily surprised. The rooms are neat and tidy and spacious. Salvatore, the owner, is such a friendly guy. He is very helpfull and will point you in the right directions you need to go to. The day of the arrival you fill in the breakfast form and Salvatore will bring you the breakfast that you choose on the terrace on the roof. And he makes the best cappuccino (we have to add the part that we normally don't fancy coffee) So he did a really good job. Even when we checked out he gave us a lot of pointers for the rest of our trip. Seriously this is a wonderfull B&B that will exceed your expectations! Thank you Salvatore for making it feel like a home away from home.

Stayed here for 2 nights while visiting Pompeii. The owner was friendly, the rooms were small but had a kitchen, and only about 5 rooms in the whole place. No wifi in the room, but was allowed to go downstairs in the lobby where the router was. Good location, right across the street from a market.

Recommended!

We spent a full 7 nights here. Our room was a lovely place to come back to after our days out and about. The Air Con was very welcome as we had some days at 30-31 deg C. The bed was Kingsize and had a super comfortable mattress. The room was very clean and serviced daily extremely well. The Tv had many chanels and you could always find something in English if you fancy a bit of telly. There is free Wifi that doesn't even need a password so you are fully in touch if you want to be. There is a small supermarket straight over the road for any bits yu want which is cheap. Salvatore the owner is a great guy. He is very friendly and always has a smile. He will do anything for you and whilst his English is not perfect you always manage to understand his advice/directons/help. Breakfast was served by Salvatore up on the roof terrace at a time of our choosing and always served with a smile. This accomodation is in our opinion excellent, and good value for money. We tended to have a few days out, spending a full day in the ruins at Pompeii (Utterly superb/stunning !). We had 2 days out on the train at Sorrento (Cost peanuts about 4 euros each return) We also had a day up at Naples by train again peanuts fare. We visited the huge Museum there which is just next to Piazza Cavour Metro station, as well as the shops further down in town. My one piece of advice would be - If you intend getting a taxi to Pompeii from the airport always pre book it. Currently the going rate is 50 Euros and that can buy a lovely Mercedes with a top driver. We didn't! On our arrival a taxi driver approached us at the airport (taxi cab with meters) He drove us there and there is a double supplement to pay outside of Naples. He ripped us off. He wanted 120 Euros, but in the end settled for 90 euros. This was the only bad thing about the holiday. Whilst there for ur return we booked a taxi online through Airports Shuttle express.com and got the Lovely Merc on the way back for 50. But this is about Dolcevita - Yes highly recommended and Salvatore deserves our/your custom. - By Janet and Mr. Roy (Salvatores' name for me).

We stayed at B&B Dolcevita for 2 nights, my family of 5 had a great time, this B&B is in a perfect location, and Salvatore was wonderful, breakfast was great and the rooms were super clean!! I highly recommend this place. Salvatore would give you directions to go anywhere you plan on going. Train is very easy to take too.
