Villa dei Misteri
Ranked #20 of 26 Hotels in Pompeii
Reviewed 29 October 2013

We booked this hotel because of its amazing location. The staff added to our experience and made it a wonderful experience. Nothing was too much trouble. We travelled from Rome to see Herculaneum and Pompeii. We didn't want to be rushed and so booked this place. Breakfast was lovely. The swimming pool was brilliant for all of us. The local trains are good and very regular. I would definitely return to this hotel.

If you are thinking of staying near the Pompei excavation site, this is the place. It is a 6 minute walk from the Scavi entrance and the station, has a lovely pool which we used after wandering round the site, is perfectly located and the staff are very friendly and speak perfect English. The trains can take you straight to Herculaneum, Sorrento and Naples. There are numerous restaurants and snack bars a few minutes walk away, and the hotel restaurant is reasonably priced. The cost of a room was very reasonable and we enjoyed the stay very much and the view from the balcony was exceptional, on the left you can see the ruins, on the right the mountains and the bay of Naples, however there are always negatives, and the only ones we found were hard beds and a lack of English TV channels !!

Just spent 2 nights here with my family to see Pompeii and Napoli...great great great location!! 5 minutes from the gates of Pompeii, 15min walk to downtown, and 5 min to the train...
The outdoor pool is very nice, our kids swam mornings and evenings.
The front desk spoke english and were very attentive and helpful, even offering to print off google maps for our drive into Napoli.

The rooms and the breakfast were average but if you travel like we do, the room is only a place to sleep! We would definitely stay again...

Room Tip: get a room in the main hotel, 2 or 3rd floor, and make sure your AC is working!

We've just returned from a 9 night stay at the Villa dei Misteri where we were enjoyed a holiday filled with culture and sunshine. We opted for half board and enjoyed our supper eating good local produce and drinking delicious local red and white wines. The hotel is going through tough economic times as is the whole of this region of Italy - just take a walking visit through Naples......
The location of the hotel is first class with a 5 minute walk to the Circumvesuviana train line which serves the whole of the Amalfi coast - cheap fares - too. The town of Pompeii itself is a 15 minute walk with a good choice of restaurants - Il Principe and gelateria - Golden Age to recommend just two.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the second floor overlooking the swimming pool- excellent views from the balcony o...

This is a simple hotel, no frills, but extremely clean and comfortable. Nice staff give great directions and swimming pool is lovely to beat the heat and fatigue of touring Pompei. I would recommend highly to those traveling by train for ease of access to train station and ruins. Very reasonably priced, too.

Room Tip: Ask for 3rd floor room with AC

I am not quite sure why this place gets such glowing reviews. The good points - the service is lovely and helpful...they really are very nice people. Second, it is fabulously well located for the ruins of Pompei and the Circumvesuviana train station which can get you around the area. It is about a 15 min walk down into Pompei town itself where there is more of a choice of restaurants - but Pompei is basically a pretty poor town (as is the region) so don't get too excited by the choice. Negatives - I was in the "motel" block near the pool so those rooms may be different from the main block. The whole place is very very dated. My room was rather dark and the lighting was hopeless at night. About 3 times I didn't have any hot water at all. The shower is a funny arrangement that overlaps the loo. The bed is rock hard (that doesn't bother me but may bother some people). There is no kettle or TV (well, it's not an expensive hotel). Wifi was free (hurrah) but didn't work for much of my stay - though I could access it in the lobby. Breakfast was disappointing - some kind of undrinkable "Sunny Delight" instead of fruit juice and otherwise a smorgasbord of white carbohydrate. Homemade marmalade was good. I had a meal in the restaurant one night which was fine.

Room Tip: Maybe you get better rooms in the main block and don't get the hot water problems?!

I have to be honest, I am not in the habit of writing a review, however I feel this place deserves one.. My stay here was very relaxing and as other reviews had said, the hotel staff were very friendly and I can certainly agree with that. They seem to have regular return business which says a lot for the place. Siting around the pool was most relaxing and pleasent. It is minutes away from the gate to Pompeii Scavi and the train station. From there you can get an orgaised tour to Vesuvius. I went there first before I went in to Pompeii. A tip... if you get the €12 bus you will have to pay another fee when you get to the Vesuvius national park €10 or you can pay the €22 bus situation at the train station. It you like fun rides, you will like that one! wear a good pair of shoes as there is a 20 min walk to the crater. Anyway back to the hotel. The food was fair, not the best Italian I have eaten but not the worst either. Breakfast was better more continental in style, cold meats and cheese plus yougart and fruit.. Their Jam (maralade) is home made and very nice too. There is free wifi in the lobby. One of the evenings, while sitting in the lobby, the Senora gave us home made cookies or biscotti they were yum! It seems to be a great base for archeologist, as there were few staying while I was there. Also as it is so close to the train station getting to Serrento is easy, but beware the last train from Serrento is 21.37 and a taxi back will cost you over €100 so take note! I learned the hard way missing the train. Another tip if you are going to pompeii scavi, get the train to Serrento not Pompeii,as that one goes to modern pompeii. The hotel itself is in need of a bit of tender loving care and in its day was, I am sure majestic but the welcome and cleanliness made up for a lot.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in main hotel as the rooms around the pool are in need of a bit of care, plus you ca...
