The Dolcevita was exactly what we were looking for in Pompei, it was clean and comfortable and had loads of hot water and all conveniences. The shared kitchen had all we needed and the breakfast provided by Salvatore the owner was superb. Every morning he served us fresh fruit juice from oranges, lemons and tangerines grown in his own garden, lovely! Salvatore was extremely helpful and very friendly, he really made our stay a success with his information about the town and the ruins and directions to Pepino's Osteria (Restaurant with a menu containing Gluten free options, absolutely lovely food, great local restaurant).
One thing you should know if you are thinking of staying at the Dolcevita, There are 3 train stations in the modern town of Pompei. If you are travelling by train to Naples (Napoli Centrale) from Rome or another location in Italy then on arrival you change to another train company called Circumvesuviana by following the signs down the escalator to Garibaldi Station and taking a local train to Pompei. This company has two stations in Pompei and you do NOT want to get the train to Pompei Scavi Station which is close to the Villa Misteri end of the ruins. If you do then it will cost you a Euro 15 taxi to get to the centre of town. You want the train station in the centre of the town called simply Pompei, it's close to the church and the town square and from there you bear left out of the station entrance around the corner and the B&B is almost immediately on your right, opposite a small grocery shop.
The two stations are served by different trains so keep your eye on which Pompei station the next train is going to by watching the information boards above the platform
