After a long journey travelling to pompeii we arrived at the hotel...first, the receptionist Bridget was absolutely amazing...so kind, friendly and helpful...She checked us in and explained everything very politely and with a huge smile...She took the time to explain places to visit and how, and also best places to eat...told us how to visit the volcano and the ruins, informing us on the right buses to take and also what to be careful of... The hotel was clean, fresh and the rooms were amazing...very nice... but for us Bridget made the whole experience a thousand times better...She is a valued commodity to the hotel...!! Thankyou

Well renovated hotel in an old building. Modern amenities. Clean and quiet (asked for room not facing Via Roma). Desk hours not available 24-7. But young lady staffed at desk was very helpful with guidance and suggestions of Pompeii & places to eat. She spoke English very well. Hotel is about 3-5 minute walk to Amphitheater’s entrance of the Archeological Park & 15 minute walk to Porto Maria’s entrance (main entrance). If leaving windows open, watch out for small bugs that bites. (Windows do not have screens). Shower drains runs slow. We stayed 2 nights. Overall a wonderful place to stay while visiting Pompeii!

We had 2 great nights at this hotel, is clean, the rooms are big and the bathroom is awesome. It is super well located in front of the ruins and around 8-10 minutes walking to the train station. It is located on a busy road but as soon as you close the windows you hear nothing at all! I really recommend this place ! Many people say there is no elevator, but it was just one floor, nothing really serious!

Response from G G, Proprietario at Palazzo Balsamo Pompei
Responded 7 Nov 2019
Ci spiace leggere tutte queste falsità , in verità Lei ha chiesto di poter avere un ferro ed un asse da stiro e noi ci siamo subito adoperati per fornirglieli. L'uso improprio e maldestro degli stessi da parte Sua, ha determinato un danno al capo da Lei stirato. Possiamo conoscere le nostre responsabilità nell'accaduto? Le sembra una motivazione valida per non voler pagare il soggiorno?

This is a lovely place, with large rooms and large bathroom The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The only thing I would say negative about this place is the noise from the street, we found it extremely hard to sleep at night with all the noise from traffic racing up and down the road beeping horns at all hours and people shouting. The windows didnt shut out the noise and it continued all night! I can usually switch off and ignore it, but I could not do so here.
