"Close to the train station, and ruins."
The owner of this B&B was so incredibly helpful. We needed to go from Pompeii back to Rome the next morning, in order to catch a plane from the Rome airport in the afternoon. As soon as we got to the hotel, the owner not only checked us in and helped carry out luggage, but he made all the arrangements for us, including buying the train tickets online, […] finding information on connection in naples, arranging a taxi, and giving us restaurant recommendations. Our long journey the next day went off without a hitch. He made our stay in Pompeii unforgettable Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Salvatore is an excellent host. A Great spot!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very convenient to train station"
Salvatore was very helpful and always available. Being close to the train and using his advice, we were able to get to all the places we wanted to very conveniently. The eastern entrance to Pompeii Ruins was an easy walk. He also recommended some good restaurants, from the inexpensive pizzeria around the corner to the lovely garden Todisco. Our only […] objection was having to move to another hotel for our fourth night but Salvatore handled everything very nicely. (He said that our room had already been booked for that night, but it did not show that on line at hotels.com) Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"easy access to places of interest"
Our stay was very enjoyable, our room comfortable, clean and very quiet and Salvatore No. 1 looked after us exceedingly well! Our breakfasts and chats on the rooftop terrace will never be forgotten! Pompeii ruins, Herculaneum, Naples, Sorrento and Amalfi all within easy reach using the circumvesuviana trainline. Many restaurants and bars all around […] as well as shops and atms. Will definitely return soon. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Bed and breakfast Dolce Vita, Pompei"
Hotel is very convenient for the centre of town and only a short walk from the train station. Standard of the hotel is good - very clean with a reasonable size room and small balcony overlooking the street. Salvatore the owner was very helpful in giving good advice and recommending activities and places to eat. He arranged tickets for the bus trip […] to Vesuvius, a great trip if you're up for a bit of a hike up to the crater. A couple of downsides: the owner doesn't live on the premises so when we arrived and rang the bell outside (no reception desk) there was no reply. There is a number to ring and the shop owner over the road came to our rescue and rang Salvatore. If you know what time you expect to arrive let the owner know in advance so he can be there. Also, we thought we had made the booking using a credit card but he can't accept credit cards so we had to go to the bank to pay by cash. Fine if you can do that but it would be helpful to know before you arrive. Overall very satisfied with this as a base for exploring Pompeii ruins, Vesuvius and Herculaneum.

"A wonderful welcome"
07/04/14 Emma D Edinburgh, United Kingdom
This is a charming B&B with lovely rooms and a delightful room terrace where you can have your excellent breakfast of good coffee and croissant. Salvatore is a very welcoming host and makes staying here a very pleasant experience. The location is very convenient for the station and for the excavations-via the amphitheatre gate. The only downside is that the street noise starts early and is very loud - take ear plugs with you or ask for a room on the back.
"B&B Dolce Vita Pompei - Perfect Accomodations in Pompei!"
06/25/14 lwspws New York City, New York
B&B Dolce Vita. What a great place to stay when in Pompei! Finding it is super-easy—just turn left out of the train station, walk around the corner and there you are, right on the doorstep of your home sweet home, Italian style. Host Salvatore is attentive, genuinely hospitable, and as much a guide and mentor to visitors as he is hotelier. We spent three nights at B&B Dolce Vita in March 2014 and can sincerely recommend it to any traveler looking for clean, comfortable, convenient, and reasonably-priced accommodations while visiting Pompei. The rooms are generously sized, the beds are first rate, and the location ultra-convenient to the station, restaurants, the Marian shrine, and the ruins. The balcony is fun and any worries about noise are unfounded; the street below us became quiet as a church around 10:00 every night. There is no need to look elsewhere; B&B Dolce Vita is the perfect accommodation while in Pompei.
"Such a lovely experience"
05/26/14 KittyMinxtress London, United Kingdom
B&B Dolcevita is run by a very helpful and friendly man named Salvatore and he is willing to go the extra mile to help in any way in serving and giving directions. The bed was super comfortable and the room really spacious. The location was also perfect, close to the train station, shops, restaurants and only about 5-7 minute walk to the ruins. The price was great too! Perfect place to stay in Pompei!

What a great place!!!! from our first impression of a closed rather dodgy looking premises we were amazed to find it run by the most helpful individuals we have ever met- their welcome was fantastic-nothing was too much trouble. They made coffee whilst explaining the benefits of visiting Pompei- seeing our tired worn expression of all the travel form the day before. They were helpful- kind and understanding despite our lack of knowledge of each others language. They gave us everything we needed to know. Very clean- everything basic but all we could ask for. We loved the B & B- could not have made a better choice- and excellent value for money. All so close to the sites of Pompei- parking great and safe as well. Salvatore and his partner are wonderful- I can infuse no more wonderful wonderful wonderfull !!!!! We would recommend to anyone,
"Friendly and Interesting"
04/18/14 CarolinePh Anderton, Chorley
A small family owned B&B. Comfortable and interesting rooms, each decorated with a different theme. Salvatore is very friendly and helpful and was able to give us directions as well as train details and places to eat. Breakfast was good and we were able to eat it on the roof terrace. Good location for the Pompeii ruins, the Cathedral, and the train station to Herculanium. Hope to visit Pompeii again and will definately stay here.
"A great spot for exploring Pompeii"
01/21/14 Rathcarrick Sligo, Ireland
We only stayed here one night but our host could not have been more helpful. Salvatore was so enthusiastic about making sure we found the best restaurants , gelaterias and attractions in the locality. The rooms were nice and well equipped. Everything within walking distance, the ruins obviously are amazing although it was very hot in August.
"lovely and great location"
01/01/14 Janet A Lee, NH
Just 50 meters from the train station, across the street from a great grocery, short blocks from terrific local restaurants and shopping, and a lovely short walk through the town piazza takes you to the back door of ancient Pompei. The rooms were decorated in local themes, we had the lovely Pompei room with copies of frescoes on the walls and a charming balcony. Our fellow traveler had the Capri room in soft blues and mediterranean artwork. We were there in Dec. so missed out on a terrace breakfast, but our gracious host, Salvatore, served us our selected menu in our rooms each morning. He was incredibly helpful pointing out restaurants, nearby sites, and travel directions. We recommend this hotel to couples and families. Our room had bunk beds besides a comfortable queen. Be sure to stay over in New Pompei so that you have lots of time to explore the ancient city.
"A great accommodation, well located and with a great host"
10/25/13 Matt T Lincoln, United Kingdom
Salvatore provided a lovely, warm and informative welcome to the City. He provided us with a lot of important information of how to spend our time within Pompei, giving us tips of excellent places to eat as well as the best way to visit our desired attractions.He also provided us with a wonderful breakfast on his beautiful roof top garden each morning, with his individually artistic Cappucinos. For the price that we paid, the room was definitely excellent value with great furnishings and tidily presented. Would definitely recommend it. Grazie!!

We stayed at the Dolcevitta for one night. We booked 2 rooms ( one for my parents and one for me and my wife). Salvattore, the owner, received us in a very symphatic way and treated us very well. Positive points - Rooms are clean, with air conditioning, good restroom and decent matress. Location is excellent, close to all touristic points. Parking only 5 Euros/overnight and 10 minutes walking from the Dolcevitta. Negative points - no elevators, so if you have big or several lugagges, you`ll have difficuties in the access. Breakfast was very poor and breakfast amenities are improvised in the solarium. If it rains, you may have to skip your breakfast. In general was a pleasant stay.
"Perfect location for a short stay in Pompei"
10/02/13 Pauline D Firenze, Toscana, Italy
We spent a night in the B&B Dolcevita and the B&B completely lived up to our expectations. The owner, Salvatore, was simply great! Extremely nice and helpful, he was honestly the best part of the B&B. He gave us so many recommendations and advices about Pompei and its surroundings. Thumbs up to him! For the rest, the B&B had all what you would expect from a B&B. Quiet and clean room, very good breakfast, and ideal location (very close to the staition and walking distance to the Scavi and square for bus departures to the Vesuvius). In a few words I would say that B&B Dolcevita is an excellent value for money.
