    Modern room in a very old building, well located, just 100 meters from Pompeys ruins entrances The hotel is on the second floor, with a very limited staff. No lift, no help for your luggage.

    Great rooms. Great location. Friendly staff. Parking is a big issue. Also, there are many many stairs to get to the rooms. With bags this is a challenge, esp after a long drive.

    Great hotel in the city centre of Pompeii. The receptionist Daniela is an excellent asset to the hotel, she helped us with everything, even organised for us a trip to Capri and made sure we have everything we need. Definitely worth staying.

    Location good. Renovation being carried out on building, so property is work in progress. Receptionist was very helpful but do not think there was anyone there other than upon arrival. Hard to find. Will probably stick to hotels in future

    Bit of a strange entrance situation, easy enough to find but odd looking and apparently no lift? Nice stylish room, modern, clean, good a/c, the bathroom could have done with a bit of maintenance work. Staff were great. Very convenient. Good ice cream shop and a nice kids token/rides kinda area nearby (except there is two kind of tokens at that for the outside rides and the inside rides so don't buy too many of one of them) which is where you park. Parking was a bit difficult due to my lack of Italian language skills but managed to sort it out anyway by talking to the guy in the hut near the barriers using google translate app - essentially the parking is super expensive but there is a special rate for the hotel guests you pay in advance in the car park by telling the attendant. There was a fridge and free water in the room and plenty of space. Could maybe have even fitted a nice sofa in there would have been cool. Definitely would stop there again really convenient for access to the ruins (although I couldn't get an audio guide from the entrance that is nearest the hotel so would have been better to walk around to the main entrance and get the audio guide probably; although the amphitheater is near the hotel end entrance and that is really cool and you might not have got that far if starting from the main entrance)
