We stayed here for 7 days in May 2014. After some not so great experiences previous to coming here, it was like a breath of fresh air. The room was light and airy with a balcony overlooking a cute little pedestrian street. I was a little worried about the noise at night, but when you close the bathroom door, you don't hear a thing! The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom was spacious with shelves for toiletries, etc. The shower was big with good water pressure. Never ran out of hot water. There's AC but we didn't need it. Free Wifi.
The owner, Ettore, was super friendly and was always on site between 5:00pm and 9:00pm which was great because sometimes questions come up and you know he will be there (unlike some other places). He always had multiple suggestions for things (instead of giving you just one place) and he even surprised us with a bottle of champagne as it was my birthday!
There is no breakfast on site, but for 2 euros a person you can get coffee and a very delicious croissant at a bar just down the street. There are a bunch of fresh fruit vendors up and down the same street so we bought some delicious fruit to supplement breakfast.
The only thing was that we had a bit of a miscommunication in terms of meeting someone to check in (it was a Sunday, Ettore's day off I believe), the best thing to do if this happens is to simply call him. FYI there are pay phones in the Sant'Antonino Piazza just a block away and at the train station.
Sorrento is a lovely place, safe and clean and no graffiti to be seen! A great base to make day trips to Pompeii, Herculaneum, Vesuvius, Capri and the hill towns of Positano, Amalfi and Ravello (which we all did). I certainly recommend B&B DolceVita for your stay!
