“Great stay, service and location. Our second time in Ulisse”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 January 2014

I am still wonder why this hotel is classified as a hostel. It looks like a hotel, I feel like in a hotel, it has all the amenities and services expected from a hotel and more.
We stayed in Ulisse twice for six nights. We also recommended it to friends and relatives. We are all very pleased by the location, service and amenities.
The staff is very friendly and courteous. The Ulisse is centrally located, just 8 blocks from the train station and walking distance to the city center.
We experienced the Christmas Eve dinner (il cennone). It was a great experience!
Something great about the hotel is the spa. For 25 euros you can access to the termae, which includes sauna, steam room, whirlpool, relax area, and more. It helped us to relax after a long day and after walking so much in Pompei, Capri, Vesuvius, Costiera Amalfitana, etc.
After visiting Sorrento and the Ulisse twice, I can say this hostel is the best choice if you want to explore Sorrento and its surroundings.

Room Tip: Some rooms with jacuzzi. Not a perfect view from the room, what what's the point if your purpose...

We were very pleased with our stay at Ulisse. The room was spacious and very clean. There was a balcony with pretty nice view. The staff was friendly and very helpful. The breakfast was good.
The distance to the train station was the only negative, but it would not keep us from staying there again. We would definitely recommend this hotel.

I dint know how this hotel could be categorised as a hostel. We had a big comfortable room with daily cleaning and several changes of bed linen during our ten day stay. Would definitely return to this hotel if returning to Sorrento.

Ulisse does what it says, a deluxe hostel, right next to the old town part of
Sorrento. A tadge challenging to find, look for Ulysse car park, spelt differently, but same place.
We had a family room, which was in fact a family suite, two rooms, two bathrooms, tonnes of space.
The staff could not have been more helpful, so polite and helpful, finding us more towels, directions and quickly resolving a minor shower leakage problem.

Spotlessly clean, huge public areas to hang out with friends, and fair choice for breakfast although suggest checking fruit is ripe on breakfast buffet, my daughter tried a pear that was like a bullet, so it did get wasted. There was a very realistic looking bowl of plastic fruit as decor next to it and more than one person tried to pluck a grape or pick up a banana !
Recommend to any family on a budget, and even those not.

I agree with almost everything that others posters have said about this hotel (it isn't really a hostel) - you get a big bedroom and bathroom; staff are very friendly; the breakfast is OK; it is fantastically positioned within Sorrento; it's cheap; but it is frustratingly noisy at times. We had the "furniture across the floor" scraping nearly every night to varying degrees, and heard the loony who screamed at the top of his voice ("No, no, no..." several times early every morning, and counting "Uno, duo, tre, quatro," etc every evening) which bothered me but not my wife. The occasional vrooming motorbike going up the hill and garbage truck doing the rounds in the middle of the night did little to help me as a light sleeper! However, I did like the place, and if you can sleep soundly in fresh beds, this is a great place to stay. It's a quick and easy 15 minutes walk to the station (for buses along the Amalfi coast and trains to Pompei, Herculaneum, and Naples). There are many restaurants and bars within a few minutes walk of the front door, and lots of cats to admire along the way!

Room Tip: Those I saw into were all big, but maybe if there are available rooms upstairs (we were on the floor...

We were immediately pleased with the hotel when we arrived. The staff couldn't have been more helpful and made a point of telling us how to get about the town and places nearby. They assured us that they'd given us the best room they had but that they would move us to another if we wished. They didn't need to though, the room was amazingly spacious and clean and had a lovely view of the cliffs and waterfall behind the hotel. It was much nicer than we'd expected! And much to our surprise and delight, having told the staff that we were away for our anniversary celebration we entered the room to find a chilled bottle of sparlking wine and biscotti waiting for us with a note of congratulations. This made our day, it was a lovely touch!

The hotel was in a great location. It's between the two marinas, slightly out the way of the main streets but this was nice as it was only a few minutes walk to the restaurants and shops, 10 minutes to the main square and main marina and 15 minutes to the train and buses. Breakfast was quite standard but it was plentiful and there was a big variety of cold food as well as scrambled eggs so we were more than happy. There also didn't seem to be a rush to get people out of the breakfast room after breakfast hours as well which I appreciated.

The only slight drawbacks however were sleeping. At times there would be mopeds wizzing past our windows which would wake us up but we learned to keep the windows shut and turn the aircon up. The bed was also two singles pushed together so I kept falling in the gap in the middle! I happily overlooked this though as the quality of everything else was so good.

Overall this hotel is fantastic value for money and I was really glad we chose it. The staff and the service were great, always helpful and professional and the high quality of the hotel and rooms were a lovely surprise. I'd defintely stay here again when in Sorrento or recommend it to anyone else. We had an amazing stay, thanks very much to everyone at Ulisse! :)

Room Tip: We stayed in room 210 and were assured it was the nicest which I imagine it is. It's huge and ha...

Great location close to restaurants,shops,train,bus station , clean spacious room and large bathroom. Fantastic staff - very friendly and helpful. We had an early checkout and thought we would miss out on breakfast, but a staff member set up breakfast for us, we enjoyed the buffet breakfast in the bright and cheerful breakfast room.
