Our sat nav took us the wrong way and after half an hour of cobbled streets and crazy Italian drivers with numerous near misses we arrived at the hotel. We were early so I popped in to see if we could check in. The receptionist was lovely and directed me to the car park opposite. We booked in were given room 35 on the 2nd floor. When we got to the room it was okay but it was the room we had seen on an earlier review overlooking the school rugby pitch, we were hoping for something a little more special. We went down to reception, asking if it was possible for a front facing room. All of the standard rooms were booked but they had a one junior suite left at a cost of over 200 euros per night. We winced and said the other room would do but the receptionist said that as we had pre paid, we could have it for 110 euros. It was worth every euro extra, king size bed, en suite to die for, lovely sofa and balcony overlooking the ruins and Vesuvius. The hotel is opposite one of the entrances to the ruins and we were impressed that if we wanted to experience Pompeii at night they recommended an excellent restaurant within walking distance. Breakfast at the hotel was outstanding, the normal Italian fare but with the addition of scrambled egg with spinach and hot smoked sausages...lovely. The car park ticket was stamped each day and we have to say that every member of staff from the receptionists to the young caretaker were all friendly, polite and extremely helpful. From what we could see, this is the best hotel to stay at in Pompeii for service, parking and access to the ruins and motorway. After kicking the sat nav, it found us a 5 minute route back to the motorway (it had some help from the receptionist). Would definitely recommend but spend a little extra for a room with a view, it's worth it.
