“Lovely stay in romantic Sorrento”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 September 2012

This was our third visit to Sorrento and on previous occasions, including our wedding, we have stayed in a four star hotel but this time decided to give the Old Taverna a try as we had eaten in the restaurant on several occasions previously and were extremely happy with our choice. William and Maria and all the staff were so warm and friendly we felt part of the family straight away The location is great with everything on the doorstep but not at all noisy. Rooms are beautifully decorated and very comfortable. The cooking school is a must if you like Italian food and want to learn from a great chef !! This was a lovely experience as you sit and eat the food you have made and the wine flows.
We recommend anyone who would like to stay somewhere more traditional than the usual big hotel to try the Old Taverna Sorrentina

Gorgeous room smack back in the middle of Sorrento. Its a B&B, so no real facilities but if you want to be right in the middle of things its a great place to stay at a decent price.

Just to note: Although its on a busy lane right in the middle of town the large double glazed doors means you don't hear a think.

Will stay here again if we are back in Sorrento

I stayed here with my partner in April; it was a third time visit to Sorrento and the Old Taverna is by far the best accommodation we've stayed in.

Each of the rooms are different and are furnished in traditional Italian styles, we loved our 'Amalfi' room with its beautiful tiled floor, and original art work.

The Taverna itself is a B&B, but Maria and her family also own and run the Taverna, the Gelato bar and the Cookery School at the street entrance. They are also an absolutely mine of local information.

I don't believe you will find a better host than Maria in Sorrento and she with her lovely family made us feel 'adopted' and the fact we are returning next year, speaks for itself.

Stayed here as a solo female traveller at the end of my Europe trip and was so happy I chose this as my last stop. The helpful and kind nature of William and Maria was something you don't often get to experience. I travelled during the off/Winter season and they were so helfpul with suggestions of places to visit. I completed my stay with a one-on-one cooking class that I cannot recommend highly enough, a MUST if you stay here.

Room was perfect with comfortable bed, huge bathroom and amazing little balcony to look over the Sorrento alleyways.

Highly highly recommend!

Great place to stay and a great location, nice rooms, nice restaurant and Maria is a lovely host. Extremely helpful with all the local tips and tricks. Make sure you check out William's gelateria next door... amazing! We also did a cooking course in his little kitchen which was fantastic, using beautiful fresh food to create some amazing traditional dishes, a great way to spend the arvo and night. Highly recommended for a few nights in sorrento

This was my second stay. I can't say enough about the immaculate and comfortable rooms, the warmth and generosity of Maria, Theresa, Nino, Luigi and all the family who make this such a special place.
Even though the Sorrento season had not officially begun when we checked in, Maria, as usual, went out of her way to welcome us-helping us connect with a wonderful and friendly driver who picked us up a the Naples airport to Luigi preparing fantastic pizzas for us even though the restaurant was not yet officially open. We stayed for 6 nights and we were treated exceptionally well. Overall, the place to stay if you are looking for a central Sorrento location.

Room Tip: Expess your need to Maria.

We stayed 5 nights in the suite Antico Sorrento. It truly was the most beautiful suite we have ever stayed in. The B&B appears new and everything is sparkling clean. This particular suite has frescoed ceilings. Ceilings are very tall and the suite is spacious.. The floor and bathroom are tiled with traditional patterned tiles. The furniture is high quality antique. The bed seems larger than a king with an excellent, firm mattress. The bathroom is very nice with excellent water pressure and all the hot water you need. There is a kitchen set-up in an armoire. We did not cook but made coffee and tea. It would be difficult to make a full meal, but there are plenty of good restaurants nearby. There is a great bakery right across the street. The B&B is over a restaurant owned by the same family, and the street is a busy pedestrian street in the old center. The location was ideal. We slept with the double-paned windows closed and were not bothered by noise. The couple who run the place are Maria and William and they are both very warm, friendly and helpful. We hope to go back again.
