This was our first stop as part of our 9 day vacation to Amalfi coast. The hotel is centrally located in the heart of Sorrento. From the hotel, restaurants and shops were all within walking distance. The hotel manager Giovanni, was gracious and helpful in every respect. All his recommendations were excellent. He arranged a personal driver for an all day trip from sorrento to Positano to amalfi and back. The trip included stops at grand viewpoints, lunch at a fabulous restaurant in the amalfi harbor, tour of a mozzarella factory, visit to the green grotto, and a limoncello factory tour. The driver, Gaetano was entertaining and spoke good English.
Giovanni also arranged a private 2 hour guided tour of Pompeii. This was very interesting and the best way to get the most out of a visit to this amazing place.
The hotel is very clean and our room was large. The breakfast was good - in a large beautiful room.
My only complaint is that since the hotel is in central downtown area, there is no view of the mountains or water. Also, the hotel lacks a main area to relax and mingle with other guests - which I find useful for exchanging recommendations with other guests. And sorrento is a flat city. It lacks the charm of amalfi, Positano, and Capri. But it is a great location to start your trip. It's location makes it easy to get to capri, positano, Pompeii, and amalfi.
