      We enjoyed our stay. The location is excellent if you are visiting the ruins. It’s literally a 10 minute walk. Pool was a nice treat at the end of a hot day. Pool was well kept and very clean. The staff/family were fantastic. I recommend staying for the dinner (nightly at 7:30 by the pool). It was 20 euros each. A bottle of wine was 15 euros as well. The food was fantastic. We couldn’t eat all of it! Probably the best meal we had while we were in Italy. The room was basic. But clean. Overall a cheap and cheerful stay. Thanks for a great stay.

      Close to ruins

      This hotel is simply Italian, clean, quirky with friendly staff. Location to ruins is perfect and in walking distance, swimming pool was great for our teenage grandsons, we loved it. But don't expect posh that's why we liked it, simple clean great location with a great price

      Great outdoor pool and incredible home cooked food every night. The food was the best we had in Italy - so fresh and tasty. The pool was great too - our boy was in it more often than not. Easy walking distance to main gate of the Pompeii excavations and train station - once you're here you can easily use the train to get around to other sites and Sorrento etc..

      Friendly, family run hotel.

      Perfect location as was within walking distant of Pompei ruins as well as train station to get you to other places easily like Naples, Sorrento, Herculaneum, etc. The hotel was a small friendly place, where staff were very friendly and helpful. Nice setting as rooms around courtyard with pool. Enjoyed the evening meal freshly cooked.
