Reviewed 22 August 2014

This is a delightful hotel set back from the Via Roma with its own outdoor restaurant area under a ceiling of grape vines and lemon and citron trees - an oasis in the center of Pompei. The staff were charming and went out of their way to be helpful. The room spacious with free wifi. The included breakfast was great. Parking is included in an enclosed lot just across the street. All this and it is just 150 m from the hotel to the east entrance of the Ruins.

Hotel forum was an amazing find on booking.com in march when I was planning summer hols.

Right on the street for Pompeii ruins but do far off the road it is like a oasis for the weary traveller.

Where to start, excellent reception staff, day and night, beautiful grounds, lovely breakfast room and food choices.

Room was just big enough for 4 but was ok.

Highly recommend a stay if visiting Pompeii.

We were a little disappointed when we past the hotel from the street but once we walked in the driveway we were pleasantly surprised. Very clean rooms. Great location within walking distance of the Pompeii ruins. Enjoyed sitting in the backyard under the lemon trees.

Stayed: July 2014, travelled with friends

We chose this hotel based on other reviews on Trip Advisor, and weren't disappointed! Just a couple of minutes walk from one of the entrances to the site, and car parking close by. We only stayed one night, having travelled across from our fortnight's holiday rental in Puglia. It was quite easy to find the hotel, and being set back slightly from the main road meant that it was much quieter than you would expect from much a central location. A good breakfast (included in the price) set us up well for a second day of exploration!

We stayed at Hotel Forum for 2 nights last month. It is literally right across the street from the ruins.It doesn't look like much from the front of the building but there's an oasis inside. Beautiful yard with outdoor restaurant seating and also lounge area. Staff were very helpful and spoke decent English. We had a superior room which was nice and comfortable. However, I got a view of the standard rooms when housekeeping was inside, they looked old and in need of much updating. Which while we were there, they were doing some refurbish work. My advice, pay a few extra dollars and the the superior. The restaurant on site was very good. They had wonderful pizza. They also served free breakfast in the morning. The hotel also has a parking lot across the street that you can use for free. Overall, we were very pleased here.

I stayed in this hotel for three weeks and was very happy here. The location is ideal for visiting the ruins and we were only about 10/15 minute walk from the train station which was handy as I travelled from Naples airport to Pompeii by train.
The hotel itself was very clean and there was no noise from outside so I got a good nights sleep. The breakfast was nice with lovely fresh orange, eggs, meats, breads and cereals.
I would recommend this hotel to others.

We had a wonderful stay here; room on top floor; view of Vesuvius and Pompeii's ruins. Staff was great, room was clean. All compliments

(minor note to staff; the cab they called for me, some guy in a Mercedes van who tripled the meter price when he saw i was going to a fancy marina....total ripoff ...not their fault per se, but man, don't recommend that driver)
