Hotel Santa Caterina is located a few hundred meters from one of Pompeii's main entrances. The staff are friendly and helpful. The rooms were large and very clean--but ask for a room at the back of the hotel. You cannot beat the price. There is an excellent restaurant across the street which has no sign so ask the owner of the hotel, Theresa, to show you where to enter. Only locals were eating there so you know it has to be a good value.
