Basic but convenient
Posted Jan 17, 2015
Being new to Italy, this style of hotel was quite a mystery - it is located on the first floor only of an apartment block and on arrival you have to ring a doorbell and then find your way up to the reception. The staff were friendly and helpful, what we saw of them, but most of the time no one was there. We missed breakfast as we were leaving town on an early train and breakfast is only served (in room) from 8:30 - no staff had arrived when we left at 8. The room was very basic. The "double" bed was actually twin beds pushed together which slipped apart over night. The television was tiny but functional. Bathroom was basic but functional. Location is excellent for the old city (a fantastic adventure), 15 mins walk from the regional station for trains to Pompeii, 25 mins from central station and, normally, just next to the metro (the station was being rebuilt when we were there, due to have reopened 12 months ago - should be good once finished though).
