We stayed in Dolcevita in the The Positano ( green) room ,it was comfortable and all we needed. The hotel is close to the centre of the Piazza D.Longio and all transport links. a little noisy in the morning with leaning lorries but we had to be up and exploring.

My partner and I found Salvatore to be so friendly and helpful and he went out of his way to do so. On arrival we received beautiful fresh fruit which was so refreshing after walking in the sun with our luggage. He was very hospitable and basically told us to use the kitchen area like we would at home. He was so helpful with recommendations for food and places to see. Thank you Salvatore for making us feel at home we will definitely come and stay again in the future

The place is great, very clean and tidy, centrally located, close to everything, with a lot of supermarkets, restaurants, shops really close by, also really close to the chapel, a 3 minute walk.
The B&B is beautiful, the room was big, clean and tidy, with all the commodities, you've a small kitchen outside your room that you can use and with food and kitchenware provided. The owner of the place is one of the nicest people you can find, extremely warming and welcoming, really nice, always available to help with anything, he makes all the breakfasts by himself (which btw are delicious) and he's always available to add any more food you might still want, speaking of breakfast, you eat the breakfast at a really cozy rooftop balcony with a beautiful view. I forgot to mention but our room had a very nice varanda as well.

My family, with 2 young children, stayed here for 3 nights. We had a lovely room, small but it was more than adequate. We ate breakfast on the roof which as lovely. The breakfast was great - fresh fruit and amazing coffee etc.
It is a very short walk from Pompei station. Be warned, there are a number of stations called Pompei - you need to get on the line from Naples for Poggiromarino (sp). Otherwise you will end up in the middle of nowhere!!!

The most amazing thing about the B and B is the owner, Salvatore - he is a wealth of information. He was incredibly helpful and was able to advise and answer everything.
The decor of the B and B was very homey and we loved it there.

My mother and I stayed a night at the Dolcevita last month and enjoyed our stay in Pompeii thanks to the great services of Salvatore. He was very warm, kind, and went above and beyond to help us make the most of our short stay. He even helped us open our luggage after we discovered late at night that the lock on it had been tampered with in another city and we couldn't open it. His recommendations and availability were priceless. Breakfast was delicious!

We love the stay. We found exactly what were looking for. The Dolcevita is a short walking distance to Pompei Basilica, train station, Pompei ruins. There are lots of local shops and restaurants, great cakes and pizza. We hired a car and had a good stroll around. Visited Rome, Monte Sant Angelo, Amalfi Coast. Always happily be back to clean spacious Capri room. The owner Salvatore is exceptional houst. Extremely helpful, advising us everyday, drawing maps and did everything to feel us welcome. I loved his freshly squeezed juices and really great coffee. Definitely greatB@B. Don't expect 5 star hotel with the swimming pool, but the place feel homely and you will be happy staying here.

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

Room Tip: The room at the back is quieter
