Just returned from a 3 night stay at the Hotel Forum.
We chose the Hotel for it's location, directly opposite the entrance to the Pompeii site. Our room (56) was wonderful, with direct views over the site, hidden by trees, to Vesuvius. We slept really well in the over sized double bed........ and there was a small balcony for me to sit on, while my son went to bed. This was great for people watching the street below!! There was plentiful hot water always, and the bathrobe was a real bonus. The TV had CNN which allowed me to keep abreast of the news, including the winter Olympics. Breakfast was cereals/toast/pastries/fresh fruit/scrambled eggs with spinach/ sausage and fruit juices/hot drinks. We found it a good start to the day...we don't have full cooked breakfast at home daily.
The staff were friendly and welcoming, ordering us a taxi from the airport on our arrival from Naples (70 Euros). This we felt was expensive, but worth the trouble free journey.
In the early evening there are canapes in the bar, great with a pre dinner drink. The staff are full of local knowledge and helped with all my queries. The lovely receptionist even gave my son some Pompeii prints as it was his Birthday, such a lovely touch.
As we traveled in February, many cafes and restaurants are open at weekends and lunch but then not in the evening or week evenings. This would obviously change as the season gets busier.
The hotel has a ginger tabby cat, my son named him Tibbles,.........very friendly indeed.
The hotel is also only about 5 mins walk from the train station which allows you easy access to the surrounding sites.
If we are lucky enough to return to Pompeii, I would book the Hotel Forum without hesitation. I just wish I had remained there for the whole stay, rather than moving to a hotel in Naples.
