“Great value, great hosts”
Reviewed 13 May 2013

To be fair about a review I should mention that our mindset was budget conscious for this trip, but we were not willing to compromise on cleanliness, and basic comfort. Honestly, we did not know what to expect but as it turned out Studio 83 provided adequately to our needs. The owners, Fabio and his mom were responsive, friendly and communicative.

First about the location. The location is truly within walking distance to the ruins of Pompei and very much in the center of the city.

A little about our experience. We arrived via car after 6PM on a Tuesday in April 2013. We were greeted by Fabio who was very helpful. The apartment where Studio 83 is located has an under building garage where he took and parked our car. In fact he held on to our car key and served as our parking attendant whenever we needed the car which was a great convenience for us. Fabio is fluent in English and communication was smooth.

Our room was clean and updated and had many cable channels broadcasting pretty much from everywhere in Europe and many languages; flipping channels was fun.. The room was located in a nicely renovated apartment with several other rooms. The window of our room faced the street of the apartment buildings but it was quiet in the room. The common area of the condo had a hallway leading to the kitchen and exit. A very nice room was dedicated for the breakfast equipped with tables and chairs for the guests. The breakfast was prepared and served by Fabio's mom, a very nice and pleasant woman and the breakfast was plentiful and tasty.

At the owner's recommendation we had dinner at a local reasonably priced Tratoria called Add'u Mimi which within walking distance from the B&B and enjoyed some local dishes and local wine. The wine was unlabeled, natural, smooth, not super sophisticated but very fragrant and just 5EUR a bottle. This was a very pleasant surprise. It was one of the best paired wines with the local dishes I was privileged to have. Simple great food and wine! I am thinking about exploring the possibility of getting a few cases of that wine!

We highly recommend Studio 83.

The rooms are large, modern,well furnished and en-suite. The beds are really comfortable.
Near to the Pompei centre with good bars around.
Host is most helpful and friendly.
First class value!
Tip - to go to the excavations go out the back way, it is shorter and you will pass after 100 yards the Café Erman which does good coffee, cakes and beer.

We were very impressed with Studio83. Fabio is welcoming and friendly - and very professional. Our room was clean, comfortable and pleasantly quirky. Breakfast was no-frills but hit all the right buttons.

Studio83 is a few minutes walk from the centre of Pompei town, with lots of restaurants and shops nearby. We really liked the town and the locals - it's a happy place. People-watching from the cafes in the impressive main square was great fun.

An entrance to Pompei excavations is less than 15 minutes walk. The sheer scale of the place is astonishing; we also caught the stopping train to Herculaneum, much smaller but well worth the visit.

As Studio 83 is on a busy road we were a little apprehensive about noise, but it wasn't a problem as the sound insualation is so good.

Accommodation, town and excavations strongly recommemended.

I chose this place because of the good reviews and they are well earned. The place is clean and comfortable. Fabio is incredibly helpful. When we had a problem with the car he translated for us and drove us to the car hire office. We thoroughly recommend it as a place to stay in Pompei

We stayed at this fantastic B&B in Pompei during November half term 2012 with our two children (10 & 13). Fabio and his family are wonderful and the B&B really is as good as the reviews. The room was large, spotlessly clean and the whole place was like a newly decorated modern apartment. The breakfast was also good, which the children really enjoyed.

Just a quick tip, there are three railway stations in Pompei on three different lines run by two different companies. The nearest station to the B&B will take you to Naples town centre and to a station in Herculaneum (but NOT the one for the archeological site or tours up Vesuvius), we made this mistake and had to go all the way into Naples and back out again, just to start our trip up Vesuvius. Quite a journey, but well worth it in the end! Don't worry though as the station we should have gone to is only a 5 minute walk from the B&B.

Fabio is incredibly helpful, he sorted out a cab for us to get to the airport and even posted our cards when a bank holiday looked to thwart the children's plans to write home. I have no hesitation in recommending this great B&B.

They say don't judge a book by its cover… Studio 83 B & B is a hidden gem inside an ordinary looking apartment block. The B & B is very safe and secure. However, we had trouble finding the entrance … we should have entered from the entrance NEXT to the studio 83 sign, then turn immediately right once inside to press the buzzer.

Fabio is welcoming, polite and keen to provide excellent service. He happily parked our vehicle for us and recommended an excellent trattoria for a memorable dinner. He even offered to run the the pharmacy to get our daughter medication when I explained that she was unwell. Breakfast and coffee were good. Thank you!

The only unusual aspect to this B & B is the absence of natural light but that is rectified by opening the shutters and doors to the outside. We spent the day at the ruins so it was not a concern.

Studio 83 is a very well-priced B & B very near to the Pompei ruins and what a highlight they were! Thanks to past reviewers, this was a excellent option for our family.

The room in Fabio's apartment was beautiful.. well appointed, large size with very modern fixtures. As a host, Fabio was great - he helped with our luggage, parked the car and made a wonderful suggestion for supper! His dog 'Ace' is a cutey as well.

Would definitely stay here again!
