Hotel Forum Via Roma
I can’t think of one thing wrong with this hotel. Everywhere was always clean and tidy, it had a great modern feel throughout the building.
Our room was huge with a little balcony that faced the Pompeii ruins but there is a line of trees so you can’t actually see the ruins but you have a great view of the street. We had a huge bed that was seriously comfortable, 2 big desks, one of which had the minibar under it and the other had the TV on it. A huge wardrobe which had hangers, a small chest of drawers and the safe inside. One part I did like was that there was a buzzer for the door on both sides of the bed so we didn’t have to get up to answer the door when our friends knocked for us.
All the plug sockets in the room also had USB sockets which was a big plus for me. The bathroom is a good size with a big bath and shower, a wall fixed toilet, nice big mirror with a little mirror on an extending arm and a bidet. We were given loads of towels, dressing gowns, slippers, shower gel, shampoo, nail kit and sewing kit.
The breakfast was the same every day, scrambled eggs, little frankfurter sausages, different breads, mixed fruit bowl, fresh fruit, milk, soya milk, yoghurt, different cereals, lots of tea, coffee, snacks, ham, cheese and some other bits. You could eat in the breakfast room or sit outside in the garden which is lovely when it’s sunny. We mainly sat inside but one morning it was so sunny that we had some food inside but then went outside with our bowls of cereal and drinks to enjoy the garden.
Speaking of the garden, it is beautiful and a great place to sit and relax with lots of seating in the sun and the shade. They have lots of lemon trees and other plants so it smells fantastic. They have a bar in reception with a few tables and they do snacks throughout the day. There is a lift and stairs to all the floors. The staff were lovely, very friendly and they even helped us to book a trip to Vesuvius and called us a taxi another day.
When we first arrived, we were early so only one of our rooms was ready. The staff let our friends check in so we could all sit in their room while the other was cleaned. They then called us when the other room was ready so we could check in. The room was cleaned everyday except a few days when we put up a do no disturb sign so they left our clean towels, toiletries and toilet paper on a stool outside our room for us.
The wifi in the hotel is great, had no problems at all with it during our stay and had a great signal everywhere in the hotel. The location of the hotel is perfect. You have an entrance to the Pompeii ruins over the road, you are surrounded by cafes and restaurants, there is a Carrfour supermarket just down the road and it’s a 5 minute car ride to the train station. It was all perfect for us and what we wanted to do.
Would gladly stay here again, no question about it
