“A great central friendly appartment”
Reviewed 27 October 2013

We had the smaller apartment without the terrace. It was modern, comfortable and functional. Massimo the owner greeted us warmly and chatted about local attractions and transport - very helpful. He was most approachable when we had a problem to solve and his aim was to ensure that we had an enjoyable stay.
Cons:
Apartment is compact and a little on the shady side due to the single window.
Pros:
Great central location.
Comfortable bed and sofa
Large wardrobe with safe
Modern throughout.
TV and WiFi
Happy to recommend this apartment and imagine that any of Massimo's other properties would be well worth considering.when we return.

Room Tip: We wished that the terrace apartment had been available as it would have been nice to sit out.

We stayed here in Sept and enjoyed the location immensely. It was very close to everything. The only negative is unlike many hotels, housekeeping is done every four days.The restaurants and shops are all very close by this location. We would stay there again

We really enjoyed our stay in the clean, well equipped studio apartment with patio. The location is excellent, in the heart of the old town and within walking distance of all the sights. Massimo, the owner was very friendly and helpful. The apartment is great value and we would definitely stay there again.

The "owners" were fabulous. The location was in the heart of the old city, walk to everything. My only "complaint" was the staircase in our apartment was a little precarious but the terrace was great for alfresco dining. We were there for almost two weeks. The apartment is small but we came to see and not to sit. Overall I highly recommend.

I had always dreamed of visiting Sorrento so to celebrate my husband's birthday, I said, why not Sorrento. Il Pozzo! I loved entering though the massive doors, gazing upwards, the light dancing on the curving staircase, the old well, all the while imagining generations passing through the doors. And exiting, turn left, a short walk and there a magnificent view of the Bay of Naples and Mt Veservius. A short walk to your left and you make your way to the marina below. Turn right and a short walk takes you to the Cloisters, a popular venue for weddings, and a little further on to the balustrade overlooking the sea below and beyond. If I turned right when exiting the building I could stroll up to Corso Italia, or wander through the enchanting back streets just absorbing the pulse of people going about their business, tourists dragging suitcases over the cobbled stones. Restaurants, music, gelato, pizza, spaghetti abound. And at the end of the day, back to the apartment which was well equipped, clean, spiffy bathroom and a oh so very comfortable bed. Thank you to our gracious hosts, Massimo and Therese.

Room Tip: Book early. Il pozzo obviously has a reputation for great location, accommodation and hospitality...

I have gone to italy before to study abroad in Sorrento. During that time we stayed in an apartment. I fell so in love with the town that I knew that one day I would spend my honeymoon there. Years later here we are! I knew Sorrento was a safe, clean, English speaking community, and we didn't need to waste money on a hotel (since we'll never be in the room anyway!). After communicating with Massimo a few times (owner) I decided to take the chance. My husband and I never did a vacation rental before so we were a little hesitant. All of our fears were immediately gone as soon as we got off our plane. Massimo arranged a car service for us right off the plane that took us straight to our destination. Massimo greeted us at IL Pozzo with a big smile! Gave us a tour of the apartment and gave us a map of the town with all of his suggestions of places to eat, adventure, and more! He even introduced us to his wonderful family! Cleaning service was also included! The apartment was a perfect size, CLEAN, and home-like. Beautiful little private terrace that we used for afternoon snacks, reading, and late night conversations. The location is PRIME! You have the best of the best all around you! We spent two weeks there and could have stayed longer. The restaurants to the right of the building are the best in town. We have absolutely NO complaints about this place and will definitely go back again.

My wife and I have visited sorrento many times but stayed at Il pozzo in June this year for the first time. We found it to be a perfect base situated right in the heart of town within walking distance of all the major attractions. Our apartment was clean and well equipped with the added bonus of a large outside terrace. The price was good and we would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: Make sure you request the room with the balcony it's more expensive but well worth it.
