“Amazing accomodation in the heart of the Old Town”
Reviewed 29 September 2013

If you are looking for somewhere to stay in Sorrento, look no further. In the heart of the old Town these apartments are ideally located for everything. No need for a car, transport by train or bus a 10 minute walk away. 30 seconds to a beautiful square, Piazza San Antonio with fabulous restaurants, L'Abate being our favourite. 5 minute walk to the cliff top and from there down to the sun bathing platforms. The owner Daniela couldn't be more helpful, she arranged taxi transfers to and from the airport. Our driver Mariano pointing out the local attractions to us. He recommended 2 restaurants which we tried and loved. The apartments are delightful , very clean and perfect cotton towels and bed linen. We stayed at no 6 with an outside terrace. We will definitely return to Sorrento and would not consider any other accommodation. Many thanks Daniella - The Cardells

Room Tip: Apartment 6 and 4 are lovely, to be fair we didn't see in any others but suspect all will be of...

We stayed in apartment 4 and 1. The apartments are spotless, comfortable and in a great location. I can't fault them except for the hard beds, which are typical in Italy. We enjoyed the terrace in apartment 4 and didn't want to move to #1, but when we booked late, we had to be in whatever was available. Daniella and Piña were very helpful and available when questions arose. Sorrento is lovely and this apartment just adds to the charm! The restaurant under the hotel is very nice and we ate there 2 of the 5 nights. If you need a hotel atmosphere do not consider this, but if you want space and comfort this is your place!!!!!

We enjoyed five nights at Antico Palazzo Scala in September 2013 as a family of five, staying in Apartment 2. The location couldn't be better in the heart of the pedestrian area and the service from Danielle both before and during our stay was excellent. The room was perhaps a little crowded for five people, and the kitchen facilities are limited, but it is good value and very clean. We had problems with the air conditioning but this was promptly dealt with.

We stayed in two apartments here. The location is outstanding, right in the heart of it all, but still charming. The first, #6, was amazing, with a beautiful balcony looking over the rooftops and a great view of the mountains, clock tower and church dome. The second apartment was #2, on the pedestrian alley. This apartment was smaller but still nice.
Apartment 6 is beautiful, clean, spacious and modern. I have no complaints, other than one morning at 4:30 am a neighbor woke us up with a bit of a gathering. We thought it was the apartment below and were annoyed. When I told Daniella, she explained it must come from the neighboring building as the other apartment below was vacant. Fair enough, and not her fault. This does lead to the one problem with the building, which is that it is a little noisy in my opinion. We had other neighbors in the building who woke up early each morning and we heard chairs scraping and people thumping around. I am a light sleeper, but I did manage to go back to sleep. If you don't mind noises as described, you will not be bothered. This seems negative, but I always try to be accurate in reviews.

Apartment 2 was very nice also. We had to swap into it because another group had reserved Apartment 6, which was all known of at the time of booking. When we had a problem with the boiler Daniella had it fixed immediately and we were only inconvenienced for the morning. Internet was patchy in the whole building, if you must have it you might find that frustrating. We did hear her on the phone with the Internet provider and it was clear she is trying to get the problem sorted out.
We thought these apartments were very good value. They were fully equipped, clean, lovely, and modern. The decor was pleasant and appropriate. Daniella and her assistant were very nice and helpful. I would stay again. Try to get apartment 6, or 4, which also seemed very nice.

Room Tip: Book at least 6 months ahead to get the best choice of apartments.

Thoroughly recommend this appartment. Beautifully furnished, comfortable beds, very clean, well-equipped, including electric kettle and toaster! Fantastic location in the heart of Sorrento. Exceptional cleaning provided mid-way through one week stay. Welcome gift of fresh milk and bread would have been icing on the cake!

We stayed in this apartment (number 4) for 9 nights. The best thing about it is its location as it is situated in the pedestrian part of the town which has real character and charm. The apartment was spotlessly clean and nicely furnished. It is also really nicely laid out and one of the huge pluses is small terrace which looks over the roof tops to the cliffs behind the town; great for a meal and a drink after a day of sightseeing. We had booked this apartment through Summer in Italy who were very communicative and we also found Daniela and Pina, who we dealt with at the apartment, helpful and polite. There are, however, a couple of things which stopped us giving it 5 stars, and perhaps if we had not already stayed in 2 other apartments we would not have been disappointed by these issues. This is actually a small 'apartment hotel' as there are 6 apartments in total. Although there is absolutely no onus on the owners to supply any basic foodstuffs, given what we had found in other apartments, we felt the total absence of this lacked a sense of 'hospitality'; international travellers find it hard to tote salt, pepper, oil etc and it would cost the owners so little to buy these basics in bulk and supply them in each apartment. We were also travelling with iPads and there was very poor wifi access - only in the foyer and very unreliable. We were told this issue was being addressed next year. Those things aside we enjoyed our time here and would certainly recommend it. Also visit the restaurant Le Grazie which is just downstairs. We visited this a few times and enjoyed great food and excellent service.
