The hotel itself is lovely, nice staff, good breakfast. however we were 2 friends (60 years old) who had booked a double/twin room. Our beds were almost beside each other and squished against walls. We had to leave our suitcases (we only had 1 each) in the bathroom as there was just nowhere else. After 2 nights (out of 6) when I couldn't stick it anymore I went to reception to asked for a bigger room (like we had been shown in the brochures). They said that all the room were the same. We found out later that this was a lie and we visited 2 other rooms which were a normal double size and looked like you could walk around them a bit. When we went back to our room after breakfast the housekeeper had been in. she pushed a locker between the beds. Now one bed was blocking the door to the balcony. We had to scramble over it to get out to the balcony with some effort. Our bathroom door didn't shut so we had to wedge a carton in it to have some privacy. The walls are thin you can hear your neighbours flushing the toilet, having a shower etc. On the balcony the view down into the garden is lovely, if you looked up it was derelict building...and not charming old Italian buildings, more like construction work. Sorrento itself was wonderful we also did a tour of Amalfi, Pompeii and the island of Capri. These were brilliant experiences I would recommend them. the people we met were welcoming and kind. We booked with topflight, it wasn't a cheap holiday so was expecting a better sized room.
