Just 5 minutes from the archaeological site, this hotel takes its name from the ruins of an ancient Pompeian villa located on the same street. The villa is known for a fresco portraying the initiation rites (or "mysteries") of the Dionysian cult. The hotel's relaxed family atmosphere has made it especially popular among archaeologists and architecture schools. It is also perfect for anyone who wants to visit the area away from the city traffic within easy reach of major transportation points. The pool is in the shape of a classic vase and is 25 metres (83 feet) long. A long sun deck stretches above the pool. Air-conditioning comes at extra costs.
