A comfortable hotel close to the archaeological site and within easy walking distance of Pompei town. Facilities good and rooms very clean. Hotel does not serve food other than breakfast and you are expected back by 12.00 pm which can be a slight problem if you want a late night out. However, on balance, a good choice.

The Hotel degli Amici is conveniently located in Pompei, a few steps from the famous archaeological site , the Sanctuary and …More
I can't say enough nice things about this hotel! Very close to the Ruins and the train station. Very clean and friendly. But the biggest asset is the generosity of the staff. Someone in our party left his passport in his room and after check out one of the hotel staff came looking for us in his car to return the passport. Needless to say, the loss of a passport could dampen a whole trip, but we were able to proceed on our hike of Vesuvius without a care in the world! Kudos for excellent customer service.
"Perfect location, short walk to Pompeii Entrance"
Very warm welcome and the owners were always helpful. Room had large bed, perfect plumbing, aircon, TV etc. There is space for 3 or 4 cars inside the metal gated car park so our rental car was off the road.
First: this is a hard to find hotel. It is away from the centre, and is hidden behind a car park. The staff are very friendly, but their English is poor. The rooms are ok. The handle fell off the bathroom door, as did the shower control in the shower. The outside fabric of the building is crumbling. You do get a view if Vesuvius, but a loud motorway lies in between. The breakfast is adequate. There is no tv in the room. Overall, given the cheap price one cannot overly complain, but don't expect to be bowled over. And expect to walk under a motorway bridge very day beside a noisy road if you want to get to the centre.
"You will not find a better location for the ruins."
We chose this hotel for its proximity to the excavations and cold not have done better. It is literally "across the street" from the main entrance and the free parking, at a large guarded car park is a real bonus in a busy city.
The hotel staff could not have been more helpful and friendly - we arrived at 12, knowing we could not check in until 2, but they directed us to the car park and allowed us to store our bags in a secure room in the hotel reception.
The real treat, however, was to discover that, upon our return from a long afternoon in very hot sunshine at the excavations, they had very kindly upgraded us to a VERY superior suite - utter luxury with 2 bathrooms, a Jucuzzi Hammam and pristine, state of the art furnishings and decoration.
So all in all a BIG thumbs up to the Hotal Forum- you can't do better in Pompeii
