“Great place to relax”
Reviewed 19 September 2009

We just returned from 18 days in Italy. We were in Paestum to see the beautiful Greek temples located there. Stayed only one night but that was the most enjoyable stay of our trip. We arrived by train and went straight to the ruins but in retrospect it would have been better to have asked Luigi to pick us up at the train station as he was the most gracious and kind host we had in Italy. He was very willing to help. We saw the ruins and then walked to the hotel which was very close but the walk included a stretch along a busy road with no sidewalks... scary! I would not recommend the walk and particularly with the offerings of Luigi to transport us to and from the train station. I was reluctant to ask but would in the future. The hotel is beautiful, quiet, and had a pool that was wonderful. With those hot, humid Italian summer days it was heavenly. The hotel was immaculate; our room was wonderful. The restaurant was excellent in terms of the quality of food served. We had an excellent meal there. I would echo some of the other reviews that the host is very gracious and willing to be of service to you. This, and the hotel itself, made our stay very enjoyable. They had Wi-Fi which was easy to use as well, an important selling point for me.

I am special guest at Villa Rita, I hve been adopted as Wireless User by owner of this nice place!
It is the unique place where, in paestum, you can use internet wireless in a wonderfull atmosphere!
The place sounds great: nice hall, comfortable chairs and internet signal, clean and fitable swimming pool aside!
I am more than sure that also to be a typical guest of this Hotell will be great!
I do reccomand it!
Kindness does exist here, believe me!

We just returned from a 3 week trip to Italy, we spent 2 nights in Paestum at Hotel Villa Rita...we wish it would have been longer. We were picked up at the train station and shown some of the sights back to the villa. Luigi was the most gracious host we encountered in all of Italy! We'd like to think that we were just special, but we saw that he treated all of his guests with the same warmth and kindness. The accommodations were fabulous, very clean and quiet. The food was delicious. The pool was very clean and large. We were very close to the Paestum ruins. We were just 10 minutes walk from an amazing beach; clean, sand, shells, and a long beach to walk. The only draw back was there are no sidewalks to get to the beach or the ruins, but in typical Italian style they just drive around you. We would return again, but we will definitely make reservations, we are sure this gem will be found out and it will be filled to capacity.

We stayed at Hotel Villa Rita for one night. The sound of birds and sight of gardens was a lovely break after four days in Rome. This hotel is a short - not all together safe - walk to the ruins at Paestum. Our room was comfortable. Dinner was a fantastic value - bruschetta, a primo and seguno piatto, salad, and dessert for 15 euro. Breakfast was a nice buffet.

One of the best parts of the hotel is its owner, Luigi. He has a strong passion for the area and is happy to share stories and knowledge. He did drive us to the train station when we left. He was just wonderful.

The hotel owner and his daughter are very friendly. The hotel decoration is warm and lovely and you can feel the love that was put in. If you want to feel welcome this is the place.

This is a fine property that provided very good value for the price. The hotel itself is very nice and within a short walk of the ruins. Our room was good with an old world charm. The staff was helpful and the dinner at the restaurant was a bargain. We had an appetizer, gnocchi, veal scallopine, salad or vegetables and desert for 15 Euros each. Add a litre of house wine at 8 Euros (the white was very nice) and a bottle of mineral water and you have a nice meal for two for 40 Euros. The breakfast is also good. The hotel has a pool that looked pretty inviting but we lacked the time to use it. I would recommend the Villa Rita unreservedly.
