... owner of the rental place rushed out in a boat to meet us with a look of relief on his face. He said the winds blew in unexpectedly and he was glad to see we were okay. His concern was only fleeting though. When I complained about the anchor not working he implied it was my fault and that I was lucky he didn't charge me for the missing anchor. I told him I'd be sure to mention him in my Trip Advisor review of his business and he refunded me some of the money. ;)
... every street was violently shaking and buckling again, dozens of building and marble columns collapsed under the sheer weight of the white ash, and the smell of burning sulphur was everywhere chocking every creature grasping for those remaining pockets of fresh air.
Shortly after midnight another loud roar came from Mt Vesuvius to announce Pompeii's end was near. It was the first of multiple pyroclastic surges and flows from Mt Vesuvius. With a force ...
Woke up at 7am and highly considered just skipping breakfast and sleeping. But then luke came around and said we all had to go together. So I got up and had a quick breakfast consisting of a croissant and some yogurt. Okay now back to bed, and good news to me at least the boat is an hour behind schedule which means extra hour of sleep! Slept till the announcement came on to begin collecting ...
Well, I am staggered for words - I mean this tour was splendiferous ( I'm running out of words here....), seriously, it was just mind boggling to see what they have uncovered to date ( about 20% of what they know was a city of over 25,000 built on the slopes of Mt Vercuvious ( pardon the spelling) the eruption happened BC75 and the ash cloud descended so suddenly on the ...
This morning we rose early, again enjoyed our delightful home made hotel breakfast with personal barista, then promptly boarded an underground Metro train to Termini station so we could catch yet another train off to Naples. Ah Naples. More on you later.
From Naples we caught our third train to Pompei. Pompei was amazing. It is so much bigger than we imagined. A complete city thought to house some ...

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.
