Travel Blogs from Pompei
I do not have anything I want to say about Naples. We walked over to the oldest part of Naples, as this is one of the main tourist places and not to be missed, apparently, and it was disgusting, loud, and full of mafia looking people and black as night Africans, that get up in your business. Get me out of ...
... to Pompeii we wanted to book our train ticket from Naples to Florence whilst here in Sorrento so that we only have to spend minimal time in Naples (for obvious reasons!) That done we can head off to enjoy the history and sites of the area. Arriving at Pompeii train station we had prepurchased tickets to visit Mt Vesuvius. This was an interesting tour and not what I was expecting. Cattle truck (not really but felt like it) up to the National Park and then transfer to a ...
Mount Vesuvius is a 1,281 metre tall, 17,000 year old volcano located a short distance from the shore of the Gulf of Naples. In the past Vesuvius was much taller, but the rock walls of the volcanic structure have collapsed throughout its history. The rock it is composed of is up to 25,000 years old. Vesuvius is most famous as the destroyer of the ancient Roman cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum.
The trek to Mount Vesuvius is one of the first organized tours we've ...
... It would of been awesome if we could of climbed the still active volcano but unfortunately it wasn't part of the tour. Once it was all over we tipped our guide and then checked out some of the market stalls in the area. There were lots of different souvenirs with the most iconic being a penis with wings. Elke bought a small ceramic one as a gift for one of her friends. I wanted the playing cards depicting artwork from the brothels but the guy wanted 6€ which is about $11 so I ...
... up, the tour was ready to begin. They led us to the vehicles, which we had thought would be nice buses…. Instead they had two “van taxis”. We were not excited but piled in. A couple of the participants gestured toward putting on seat belts, but we all found none and the taxi driver exclaimed that we did not need them. We also need to point out, that we hadn’t ridden in a car for over a month now (we only did trains), so it was pretty weird ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Amleto Pompei
A beautiful Hotel
This is truly a wonderful find, the rooms were nice, warm and modern.
The Hotel Amleto is located within walking distance of the ruins, and a great place to take day trips from. You will find the staff extremely helpful as well as knowledgeable about sites of interest in the area. Breakfast was plentiful and fresh, also nice were the coffee's. This Hotel also has on-site parking which is truly a benefit, and they also provide free internet service.
We highly recommend this Hotel, The staff here make this an excellant place to stay.
I recommend the Amleto
My son and I spent a most enjoyable 3 days at the Amletto November 17-20th,2004. The staff are friendly,most helpful and made the difference between a good and a great stay. I had a last minute request to change from a single to a twin 2 weeks before we arrived,and then extended an additional 2 days while we were staying in the hotel. My requests were satisfied without any difficulties. The breakfast is good,room care exceptional and the staff most helpful in response to our several requests for help in traveling around the area. The hotel is a short walk from the main entrance to the ruins,and in the middle of the commercial district for restuarants and shops. We will return to the Amleto on our next trip to Pompeii!
We arrived here exhausted after having our pockets picked (both of us!!) on the train from the airport. We had not yet paid for the rooms but were treated so kindly and were able to use our room, make unlimited phone calls to the UK and eventually resolve the money problem. (the next day). The hotel itself was lovely- clean, airy, well located but the way that we were treated when everything had gone pear-shaped makes it a place we will return to and not hesitate to recommend to everyone.
We spent a weekend here at the end of October, 2004. While both the room (a junior suite) and bath were both on the small side, we found them to be comfortable and nicely appointed. The bed was very comfortable and the a/c worked great (it was rather warm in Pompeii). They also served the best breakfast that we had in Italy. The staff were very friendly and helpful.
Great family stay at the Hotel Amleto
Hotel Amleto lives up to its TripAdviser reviews.
Prompt and efficient replies to email reservations and queries. Good size, air conditioned room for parents and child - no bath but a seat in the shower! Very convenient to Pompeii centre and the quiet back (anfiteatro) gate to the site.
Splendid staff and breakfast spread to set you up for the trip round the ruins.
We really enjoyed this hotel. The place was very clean and elegant, and the staff was helpful and friendly in pointing out where we should go. They had a free computer with internet in the lobby for the guests' use that we appreciated. And it was only a short walk to the entrance to the ancient city. The only criticism is that the rooms are a bit small and the bathroom in particular was the smallest we encountered on our trip. But none of this made our experience uncomfortable.
Good little hotel in Pompei
This is a very nice little hotel in Pompei, very convenient to the ruins (a 5 min walk), and clean, well-appointed with extremely friendly and helpful people. They made our stay very easy with their suggestions and recommendations. We took the train to Herculaneum (a must since you can't drive into and find parking there), and Amleto folks were very helpful in getting us the schedules and info for that trip.
The rooms are a bit small, particularly the bathroom which is on the sparse side, but for a short 1-3 night stay, they are more than acceptable. Breakfast wasn't as full featured (no eggs, for example) as other 4 star hotels, but for the price Amleto delivers a very nice value.
We stayed two nights at the Amleto in July of 2004 and had a great time. A lovely entry and lobby, and our rooms were clean, comfortable, and had been recently renovated. The breakfast was excellent, and served in an airy and spacious dining room. (We give the capuccino at an "A".) The roof garden was a treat in early morning or at sunset. The staff was very helpful, and their advice always good.
Excellent stay at the Amleto Hotel
We chose the Amleto because of good reviews we'd read on Trip Advisor and we weren't disappointed! The hotel is well positioned in a quiet side street in Pompeii, about 5-10 minutes walk from both the Circumvesuvian station and the FS station. We stayed three nights and found it an excellent base for visiting the area - it's about 5 minutes walk to the site of Pompeii and Naples, Herculanium, Oplontis and Paestum were within easy reach by train. The staff were very helpful and confirmed train times/stations for us. Our double room was a bit small but extremely clean and comfortable, with air con (no extra charge). The breakfasts were really excellent - make sure you leave enough time to enjoy them!
Amleto - great deal
We just returned from Pompeii and the Amalfi coast. We atayed two nights at the Amleto and found it to be very convenient to both the ruins and exceptional restuarants. The service was extremely warm and helpful and the hotel itself charming and a great value. We were delighted with our stay there.
