stayed 5 nights, april/2013.
well located, ten minutes walk from the train station, in the historic part of town but on a quiet 'street'. older building, renovated modern interior (ikea-like furniture, but well chosen), glass staircase, elevator. good variety at breakfast, though more heavier dessert stuff than i would prefer. friendly staff.
room was large, clean, white, more ikea furniture, table and chairs. separate bedroom for the kids, big big plus. good bathroom.
only negative (with many southern europe hotels, i think); ceramic tile on the floor. every move in the morning as breakfast was being prepared upstairs in the room above, we heard loud and clear. i was sure there was a fridge in our room, as i could hear it cycling on every now and again; it was upstairs in the breakfast area, but sounded soooo close. i am sure the room below us heard every footstep we took. in fact, soundproofing in general could have been a bit more generous. though if it was, i would have been surprised.
anyways, a very, very minor and common issue; it did nothing to dent the great time we had at the hotel. no problem giving it a full excellent rating, and recommending it whole-heartedly to anyone looking for a place in sorrento.
