Pompeii, the Roman city frozen in time by the pyroclastic blanket thrown up by nearby Mount Vesuvius, is one of the most renowned archaeological sites in Italy and the world. It welcomes thousands of tourists every year and is a great base for exploring the Amalfi coast and the islands that lie off it. From art deco palaces and hotels nestled among vineyards to chill-out havens with rooftop jacuzzis, here’s our pick of the best hotels, bookable with Culture Trip.

Terra Mia

Bed and Breakfast
4.2/5 (5 Reviews)

From $60 Per night per room

Terra Mia, or my land, is a cut above what you’d typically expect from a B&B. It’s located 1.5km (.9mi) from the ruins of Pompei and a 10-minute drive from Castello di Lettere. The hotel offers two- and four-bed studios and glamorous suites sleeping two. Decorated in white, they’re clean and bright, incredibly spacious, feature parquet floors, comfy beds with padded headboards, wall coverings, and a hot tub with atmospheric blue lighting. There’s also a bar, lounge, garden, outdoor dining area and tour desk.

Part hotel, part winery, this resort is all about kicking back and making the most of the Italian sun. Sip a glass of the estate’s finest at the restaurant beneath grape vine-entwined pergolas, surrounded by a lush, well-tended garden. The 20m (65ft) pool with spa jets and sun loungers offers fantastic views of the Mount Vesuvius volcano, and your kids will love the stable and petting zoo. Double rooms come with a veranda flush against lemon trees; the suites’ chromotherapy hot tubs make for ultimate relaxation.

Off the main drag of the city, Pompei Be Green hides on a quiet residential street with the ruins in easy walking distance.

From $153 Per night per room

Centrally located near the ruins but still quiet, Dream House is a delight. It boasts a rooftop jacuzzi overlooking the Sanctuary and Vesuvius; recliners guarantee you won’t leave without a decent tan. The lobby’s vampire-red baroque sofa and U-shaped stairway stick out. To make you feel at home, all rooms have air conditioning, LED TV, and Netflix. Marble and parquet floors add to the neat look, and comfy beds with memory pillows and soundproof walls make for a good night’s sleep. The breakfast’s local dishes are fabulicious.

    From $62 Per night per room
    Snuggled into a peaceful cul-de-sac, this family-run hotel is just steps from the train station. Diana sits in the middle of a large garden with orange and lemon trees. Rooms are generously sized, if occasionally questionably decorated (the reflective blue feature walls in some are an acquired taste), and come with a flat-screen TV and desk. The cafe terrace is a top spot for a mid-morning espresso before heading out to take in Pompeii’s sights.

    Pompei Resort

    Resort, Hotel
    4.2/5 (600 Reviews)
    Pompei Resort

    With its deep-red sofas, flower-patterned armchairs and Versace-like paintings, Pompei Resort clearly isn’t afraid of pushing the envelope, decor-wise. The explosion of colours continues in the spacious rooms with yellow and green walls which clash gloriously with the red furniture. Not to your taste? Avert your eye towards the windows instead, from where you’ll get stupendous Vesuvius views. You’ll also enjoy outdoor dining, free shuttle and parking, and the fact that the Sanctuary and ruins are just a 15-minute stroll away.

    From $79 Per night per room
    Another modern hotel close to the ruins, and a five-minute walk from the piazza. Forum boasts huge, quiet white rooms – some with gorgeous garden views – and outrageously comfy beds. The gardens are a real highlight, as a calm, shady spot to swot up on your history out of the baking sun. Bag one of the hotel’s suites, and you’ll get your own hammam thrown in. Additional facilities include a gym, restaurant, bar, and free parking.

    A 15-minute walk from the ruins, Visagi stands out with its pitched roof, arched entrance, and atmospheric lighting. The 16 rooms are clean and simple, with sleek tiled floors, checkerboard-patterned headboards and pop wall art. You’ll also get a balcony overlooking gardens, which is where you’ll also be taking breakfast, bombarded by orange and lemon blossom scents and Vesuvius views. There’s also a bar, garage, and tour desk.
