To be fair to the hotel a lot of the hotels in the Pompeii area are generally all over priced. However, for the price I paid I was expecting a little more (60€ per night). To keep things in perspective, I have been travelling in Italy for the past 4 weeks and all I have to compare are the hotels that I have already stayed in. In relation, this was the most expensive.
1. The staff are exceptionally friendly and helpful. They really make you feel welcome and for this reason I wish I could give the hotel a higher rating.
2. Nice garden area surrounded by orange tree's, where diner and/or drinks are served.
3. Neat little terrance on the first floor with 3 tables. Ideal if you want a quiet moment or need a cigarette in the middle of the night.
1. The room that I had was extremely tiny (not too mention dark). When I mean small, I mean small. Only had a single bed and not very comfortable. The room was clean and tidy though.
2. There is no wifi surcharge, but it is temperamental and times-out every few minutes. This is a fairly modern hotel so I cannot understand why they have a problem with the wifi.
3. Breakfast is a meagre continental affair served in the basement of the hotel.
5. Diner served by the hotel restaurant is of a reasonable standard, but the portions are very small and the menu limited. (Ok, so I was lazy to walk the couple of metres into town to find a decent restaurant).
If this were a 40€ per night hotel the rating would be higher, but I cannot justify giving it higher than 2 stars.
The main reason for me choosing the hotel was due to the fact that it is only minutes away from the TrenItalia Pompeii station, which enabled me to catch the train to Salerno easily. So for me the location of the hotel was ideal. Its also in a quiet part of town so was safe at night.
In relation to Ruins: its only a short walk to the Amphitheatre entrance (10 min) to the site and a 25 minute walk to the main entrance and Pompeii Scavi Station.
Depending on your budget it maybe worthwhile looking for a hotel closer to Pompeii Scavi Train station.
For a very short stay (which is what I had, 3 nights) this hotel is just about par. If you are planning in staying longer you may want to look for something more convenient.
