“Nice Hotel!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2013

Moved here after a miss understanding with a booking at another hotel. Yes you can hear the trains when they run, but they stop around 11 p.m. and start again around 6.30am.
The room we had was on the second floor with a balcony which was a god send after a days walking. While it is next to the train line the trains do not stop here, but down the hill a few minutes walk away by the entrance to the ruins. It was a lovely big clean and newly renovated room with a shower that was big enough for a family. the breakfast was filling with meats bread jams pastry's coffee juice, more than enough.Luckily we used the facillities at villa Franca and ate every night there a must if you can. Just ring the gate bell and ask! If we did not have this choice we would have struggled at finding somewhere to eat as the hotel staff went at around 3 pm every day so no one was around to give you advice etc etc until breakfast tiime.
It was very quiet when we stayed sometimes we where the only people staying here so cannot comment on the sound proofing of the rooms.

We stayed here 2 nights. We booked through booking.com and were mislead by the location description as well as the location shown on the map published on booking.com (which shows actually the camping site belonging to the same company, just beside the station). The real location is approx 800 meters from the Pompei Villa dei Misteri Circumvesuviana train station, right on the railway track. While on arrival and departure the hotel might organise a free pick up, if you are on your own without a car, you may find yourself trapped in the middle of nowhere in the evening when time comes for dinner.
The rooms are very clean and well equipped, so was the bathroom. Everything pretty new since the villa was restored in 2011. It is a real pity that all this is spoiled by an architect who did not plan any soundproofing!
The place is sitting right near the busy railway track. Thank god, there are no trains in the middle of the night, although they are starting early in the morning. But also, you will have the opportunity to follow accurately the busy life of the rooms near to you: phone calls, screaming children, snorring, various bathroom sounds, etc.
So just to make it short: clean modern place, low rates, perfect if you come with your car and your ear plugs.

We stayed one night at this hotel in September 2011. The hotel was clean and our room was comfortable. The hotel manager was friendly and helpful but after she left around 6 pm there was nobody at the reception desk to help you. The WIFI connection was sporadic. The hotel is located just above the railway tracks. In the morning and evening rush hours there were a lot of commuter trains passing by. If you are not a deep sleeper you will need ear plugs.
