“Disappointing hotel with good location”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 May 2012

The only good thing about this hotel is its location, which is central and close to all the major sites in Sorrento.
First of all, it is not clear whether this hotel is a four star or a three star one. It definitely does not deserve four stars but somehow it markets itself in some places as a four star hotel, while the room keys have three stars on them.
The rooms are average but EXTREMELY noisy for several reasons: the hotel floors are all tile, therefore you get echoes from any small step outside. The cleaners start before 8 a.m., making a good night's sleep impossible (and Sorrento is a place you would want to relax rather than rush in the morning!).
The balconies that are advertised as being part of the rooms were basically overlooking a closed backyard, therefore not enjoyable and cause more noise transfer.
The breakfast is disappointing, especially given the room prices.

It was great to come back to this hotel after each busy day of sightseeing, and know that you could just pop around the corner to eat at a selection of different restaurants. Only a 5 minute walk from the station. We booked a triple room and were given two doubles next to each other. Very nice hotel.

Stayed for a week over Easter and wasn't disappointed....central yet quiet, it ticked all the boxes of a typical Italian hotel. The staff were very friendly and really helpful with questions about trains and buses and always had a smile for us. Room not massive, but perfectly adequate (and very clean) as you are out and about every day. Tea and coffee making facilities very welcome when you come back exhausted after sightseeing. Breakfast had a really good selection and excellent coffee !!!! Would highly recommend this hotel and would really like to go back! Go out of the hotel, turn right and right again and you are in the heart of Sorrento. Best restaurant we found was La Lanterna just around the corner......amazing food, amazing service and not expensive.

Room Tip: Higher floor gives good view of gardens....rooms have hairdryer but take your own if you need to sty...

You are in Sorrento, Italy and where do you want to stay? Right! In the centre! If you are looking for a nice, cozy hotel where you can sleep then this is it! Yes, the rooms are tiny but who cares! You are in Italy! Buildings were constructed centuries ago. Were not designed to cater for big bulky suitcases! It will fit! You have a clean bright place with a lovely courtyard with a (small) pool. And with 2 steps out of the door you are in the heart of this lovely town! Great place!

What a disappointment. I'll start with the one positive, location. Very central. Now the bad...
Staff on arrival, not interested! Room, tiny and I mean postage stamp, not able to move around the bed tiny. The bathroom was just gross. The shower just would not drain and was mouldy. The walls were paper thin. I'm sure the people in the room next to us agreed because I could tell they were whispering and I could still hear them. Then to top it all off along came the Contiki Tour and two sleepless nights of drunken, loud, annoying guests. Then there was housekeeping who would leave our ground floor room doors open to let bugs and anyone else who felt the urge into our room. Breakfast, if thats what you could call it, was just depressing. A big empty room with week old food.

Room Tip: book another hotel!

We stayed at Astoria Hotel for two nights. The hotel has a couple of good things going for it: the location is excellent and makes for a perfect base to explore Sorrento and its environs; it was also good value considering the nice room. That said, we weren't impressed with a few things. We had requested a room on a high floor facing the street when booking online and what we ended up with had neither of those things. Most disconcerting was that the cleaning staff left the balcony door wide open (we were on the first floor) which let in bugs and risked having our room burglarized. Upon leaving, we were treated very rudely by an employee at the front desk who had little patience when we asked for guidance on how to reach the port. It wasn't a great place to celebrate our honeymoon!

Room Tip: Higher floors are probably the best

Beautiful tile in rooms, friendly staff. Location is in middle of town, easy walk to everywhere. Small, but quaint rooms. Free wifi.

Room Tip: Higher is better view
