We stayed here in March for a week and were very divided on this place. The hotel itself is in an excellent location in the middle of Sorrento - 10mins walk from the port, 5-10 mins from the main train station and bus, and restaurants and shops all minutes away. The rooms were ok, no frills but comfortable and clean. The breakfast was average, but enough to start us off for the day and the staff were knowlegeable of the area and professional. The price was reasonable for the area.
Our biggest problem was the noise. Of course being in the middle of Sorrento you would expect noise from outside, even being a quiet street so that was not the issue. The problem was not this but the noise from reception which came straight up to our 1st floor room. The phone has the LOUDEST ring I've ever heard on a phone which seemed to ring constantly from about 7am to 10pm. Also about half way through our stay a family moved in next door and the children insisted on running around and shouting outside our door. It's a shame because we came back to Sorrento for a relaxing holiday as we did all our siteseeing last time we were here.
I'd recommend this place if you're going for a day or two but if you are staying longer maybe stay outside of Sorrento as I think a lot of the hotels in the town may be similar having read the reviews on TA.
