We stayed 4 nights and it surpassed our expectations. The situations is ideal - it's situated off a beautiful square (with our own Dali outside the window side-by-side with St Antoninio!) but within 10 minute walk of the train/bus station, supermarket for all the essentials and about a two minute walk to a lift (one euro) which takes you to the ferry port for Capri and beaches. Firstly, the apartment is divine. We had the upper appartment which consisted of a small, very well equipped kitchen, a living/dining room with TV and window overlooking the square with orange trees, separate bedroom with walk in closet and included a safe and a bathroom. The apartment also had air con in the main area and bedroom along with heating if required. We had our own veranda but the whole ground area was a beautiful courtyard. The apartments were inside a locked gate but there was never any fear of crime. Antonio, his mum and Louisa, the cleaner, were all very pleasant and helpful but not intrusive. I know some people found it noisy at times but we didn't experience it as being noisy but we were aware of Sorrento being alive! We spent every evening walking the beautiful little lanes and enjoying the shops and food! Also, public transport is cheap - take the trains to Pompeii and Herculaneum which are really cheap (concessions, bring ID and you get in half price!). Also, the hop-on/hop off bus along the Amalfi Coast is about £6.50 for the whole day. Well worth every penny, but start early, it's a long day, but oh so worth it!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Located in the most beautiful square of Sorrento are some attractive Mediterranean-style studio apartments (each with its own combined living and kitchen area), giving onto a pretty private courtyard which is full of flowers and plants from early spring until the late autumn. Private transport is not necessary due to the close proximity of the apartments to bus, train and ferry services. In this way, the island of Capri, the city of Naples, the ancient Roman cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum as well as the stunning Amalfi Coast are all easily accessible.The apartments enjoy a superb central location in the very heart of Sorrento. In just a few steps you can reach the little lanes of the old town with charming shops and cafés; the cloister of St. Francis with its concerts and exhibitions; excellent seafood restaurants and a small beach and bathing area. The lively main square of the town with its beautiful atmosphere is very close by. Alternatively, within an easy ten minute walk you can find yourself in the quaint fishing village of Marina Grande. ... more less
