“Fantastic location and lovely people”
Reviewed 3 May 2014

Stayed in April for a family wedding and although the weather was poor we had a great time. As the apartment was so central and easy to get everywhere in Sorrento it made the holiday really good fun. The staff were wonderful, friendly, helpful and just nice, which makes such a difference to any stay.
It can be noisy but we knew that as it was so central and on a main plaza but this was also an advantage as people watching from the terrace was part of the fun.
The room is cleverly done so you have a lot of space and everything you need for your stay, especially the large fluffy bath robes! Would stay again without hesitation.

Room Tip: Stayed in room 1 the blue room wonderful size and terrace watching the world go by.

We are a family with young children. We stayed in this hotel for four days 21- 25 of March. Staff were very helpful. The apartment was specious and well equipped. Location is great with walking distance to all good locations in Sorrento. Train and buses are within 10 minuets walk. We did not need a car at all. Issues: no elevator to the third floor but receptionist helped us with luggage. Second issue, we had a problem with the sink in the bathroom and owner did not fix it. It was leaking when used because it was a little bit dis attached from the wall. This was caused by my son leaning on the sink.

With all of these issues, I would stay again in this hotel.

We stayed here in August and found it to be very well located and within walking distance to trains.
If you stay at this place be aware that there are no elevators and you are left on your own to climb. We had to climb several flights of stairs each day in the heat and if you are not young nor fit it will pose a problem. The safe in our room was not attached to the wall as it had unglued and it was useless to us as anyone could walk away with it.

I had heard from friends that the staff here was very friendly but during our stay we hardly saw anyone. At night you are literally left on your own if a problem arises as no one is at the desk. However, there is a custodian that can be reached.

Attractive rooms, right next to the convent area and the view over the sea. Close walk to all the shops. This was a great choice for staying in Sorrento. We had the grey room and it was very spacious and comfortable

We stayed at La Piazzetta Guest House in September 2013, during 3 nights, to visit the nearby Amalfi Coast and other gems in Catania. Overall, the location is superb: only 2 minutes from the main square in Sorrento in one direction, and 2 min from great views on the other side. It is also a relatively simple 10 to 15 min walk from the bus station.
The rooms are lovely - a good design effort was made. There is also an in-room safe, which came quite handy. We had view to an internal patio/parking lot, but I guess there are rooms with street view.
Breakfast is included in the rate, and is served in a little cafe at the street level.
However, you need to consider the following caveats if you plan to stay here:
1) The hotel per se occupies 2 floors in a historic building, but not the ones near street level, and there is no lift/elevator. You need to climb 2 flights of stairs to the reception, and from there you may need to take another set of stairs to get to your room. Needless to say, this can be inconvenient if you have heavy luggage with you.
2) The reception is not permanently open, and the actual hours it remains open is less than a full working day. We were lucky to arrive at a time when it was open. Thus, make notes of the times and phone numbers in case you don't have such luck.
Overall, I would recommend this to young people carrying relatively little luggage on them.

Room Tip: You might want to ask for a room at the reception level, to limit the amount of stairs you need to g...

Family of 5 stayed in the purple room. The room was spacious and clean (though some of the kitchen equipment, like the microwave, looked like it hadn't been cleaned between guests) and it looked exactly as it did on the website. Check in was a breeze (note: you have to press the buzzer to get into the building and then climb a flight of steps to get to reception, which is just a desk in the hallway with rooms right off that hallway). There isn't someone at the desk 24/7, but there is a custodian always around. The location is great -- one block from the water, one block from the main square. We love Sorrento and the Amalfi Coast.

We booked into La Piazzetta having hated the first hotel we booked on our trip to Sorrento and so wished we had stayed at the La Piazzette for our whole trip!
We had a apartment, very clean, beautifully designed well equipped, great shower, Fab mezzanine bedroom,
La Piazzetta is right in the centre of Sorrento with lovely resturants and cafe at our doorstep and very close to the lovely bathing decks at the port,
I pasted over this place when I was first booking hotel for our trip because I wanted a pool, trust me you don't need a pool in Sorrento,
