“Excellent quality apartment with fittings”
Reviewed 5 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015

person found this review helpful

We arrived at Pompei station via the Vesuviana and was really surprised there were no taxis outside, and it appeared very quiet. Tried to contact Nello, the owner, via phone but ours is rubbish and we were cut off. Eventually, we found a local taxi driver, who charged us 15€ for a 5 mins ride. However, when we arrived at the Don Giovanni apartment, Nello was there to greet us, and take us to our apartment. Ours was located on the first floor of a commercial property, in a secure yard. Nello was friendly and informative, and advised us on attractions, providing maps etc. The apartment we stayed in, was of extremely high quality furnishings. The beds, linens, sofa etc were all of good quality. The kitchen was well furnished, although there were no wine glasses, which seems a little strange. There was a washing machine and dryer. 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms - although the shower trays are a little slippy. On initial thoughts, this should have been a 5 star review. However, we stayed in December, and the only form of heating was air conditioning. The unit is very big and difficult to heat with a/c. The windows are huge and I'm sure in the heat are great, but in winter - they let a huge amount of cold in and cause condensation. The wi fi wasn't consistent, and Nello, to be fair, said he was trying to get this sorted. The location for us was not the best. We were on an extensive tour and were using public transport to visit the local areas. There are 3 train stations in Pompei, and the nearest one, the train italia is 15 mins walk but when you are then walking around for the day, we would have preferred to be closer. However, if you have a car, this would be ideal because of the secure yard. The shopping mall is 10 mins walk, which is useful because of the supermarket inside, where you can stock up on everything you need. There is a terrace which is not finished yet, but am sure in the summer would be ideal. I am certain that if we had visited in the hotter months our review would have been more positive, but on our experience, can only rate this as average.

“Great owner, nice view, but improvements needed”
Reviewed 16 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

It is certainly true that the location of this apartment on the top floor just next to Pompeii gives it a great view on Vesuvius and other mountains. Also, Nello is a very nice person and was very helpful and friendly. We cannot fault his interactions as an owner. However, there are several issues that could be improved in this apartment in order to get a higher rating: need to do something about the mosquitos in the apartment (we killed about 15 in our 3 nights and got bitten about 10-15 times during our stay - not a pleasant experience), kitchen needed better cleaning, windows were not clean, several light bulbs were dead making the light in the bathroom very weak, hot water was sometimes absent, cooking supplies were very minimal. We did not use the wonderful terrace and its view because of the mosquitos and just opening and closing the door to the terrace made us worried to let in more. We were glad to leave because of the number of bites we had. Now, it is quite true that the location in terms of getting to the Pompeii ruins, Herculaneum, Amalfi, etc., was very good. However, one should also be aware that the traffic just to get out of the apartment area can be terrible because of the enormous traffic jam caused by the nearby shopping centre. In addition, the noise from the angry drivers in the traffic jam was constant during the day and evening. The area is not very pleasant, we had no problems but it did not seem very safe or inviting. Walking from the apartment was not very pleasant or relaxed. I would definitely recommend having a car if you stay there.

“Perfect Location”

We were looking for a place so we can visit Naples. Herculaneum, Sorrento, Capri, Ravello, Amalfi Coast and Don Giovanni Apartments was just perfect. We stayed here 5 nights, everything was available (including information) in the apartment. Shopping was close by and parking was safe. We highly recommend this place.
