Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 16 April 2012

I can only reinforce the positive reviews already posted for this establishment. It is in a perfect position for a holiday in the area. Just a few paces from the main square in Sorrento where food and drink is available from early morning until late at night. The room was quiet, clean and very comfortable with the quietest and most efficient air conditioning/heating unit I have come across in any hotel. Bedding and towels were changed daily. The bathroom had no bath, only a shower, but a very efficient one with a seemingly endless supply of very hot water. Ettore, the owner, was available every evening and also provided us with his phone number in case we needed to contact him at other times. He gave us excellent advice on eating out, how to avoid spending more than was necessary, best means of transport to places etc. We had our own set of keys so that we could come and go as we wanted. He also arranged a taxi to the airport for us, despite having to go at a very early hour in the morning. If you want a convenient, no frills, comfortable base from which you can explore the area, look no further.

The B&B is located on the main pedestrian street, so there are many shops literally steps away. Ettore, the owner, took the time to give us advice about where to get the best gelato and travel tips for visiting the area surrounding areas. Ettore was around each day in case we needed anything. There's only four rooms and you're given a key to the building and B&B so it's more like an apartment (no kitchen) than a B&B. It was a good value due to the great location.
We arrived after dark, so it was great to step onto the balcony the first morning and see Sorrento coming to life on the street right beneath us.

The location of the B&B was awesome! The room was always clean and had a small balcony overlooking the street with vendors, shoppers and live music! Apart from the great location, Ettore was a superb host! He took his time to give us a brief overview of Sorrento and provided recommendations for gelato, seafood, pizza and places to see. Ettore also assisted us in booking our taxi ride to the Naples airport, above and beyond hospitality service that we've received at a B&B! Dolce Vita is a great example of how B&Bs should be. We loved Dolce Vita and will be returning.

I recently spent a night at the B&B "Dolce vita" in Sorrento and I think it was a good choice. It is located in a renovated apartment in the centre of the town, just off the main Corso Italia, so you won't have a view over the sea, but plenty of shops, bakeries and restaurants at hand. The room was very clean, the bed really comfortable, and the location convenient, as it is at about 10-minute walking distance from the train station. The window was really sound proof, as there was music played till late at a restaurant across the street, and I could hear nothing once I closed it. The owner kindly helped me carrying my suitcase up the staircase (two floors without elevator, as in most old buildings in the area, so keep this in mind if you have a bulky luggage), and down when I left. His recommendations of restaurants and ice-cream shops proved to be very reliable. The bathroom was newly renovated and very clean, but the towels were rather thin and no toiletries but soap were provided (I was staying only one night and didn't mind). I didn't try the breakfast and went to one of the coffee places on the main square, but I suspect it would have been nothing grand. The only concern is about the size of the room: it was large enough for a single occupancy, but might be small for two people willing to stay for a long period. Overall, this is a really solid choice.

We stayed in B&B Dolce Vita at the end of June 2011. What a little gem this B&B is, located right in the heart of this beautiful city. The experience was made even more special by its host Ettore who took the time to make us feel so welcome, making sure that we were aware of the variety of dining choices, special little places that only a local would be aware of and how to make the most of our three days in Sorrento and its surrounds.

Our room and ensuite looking out on the attractive busy street below was soundproof and spotless. The price was so reasonable and I can't recommend it highly enough. We will definitely return to Sorrento and to B&B Dolce Vita.

Room Tip: All rooms are great as double glazing makes them soundproof and air-conditioning keeps them cool.

Ettore, the owner of this B&B is very proud of his place and it shows in how he runs it. The information he gives you of Sorrento and surrounding areas is extremely helpful and the rooms are immaculate! It is located not far from th train station and the Piazza Tasso on a wonderful pedestrian walking street lined with many shops to browse or shop in, from the lemoncello shop to the lemon candy shop, both products are made on the premesis! And of course, if your are interested in ceramics, there are many places to make a purchase. You could not ask for a better place to stay! The only downfall that may effect some people is there is no elevator, but other than that, it's a keeper and if we ever go back, we would stay there again
