Stayed here for three days in May and, despite a few odd gripes, I would definitely recommend it. We were welcomed very warmly when we arrived, and the desk staff were always extremely helpful. We, too, asked for a kettle, but the staff were not allowed to issue electrical appliances, so they were polite but firm on this point. We had a sea view room, with views to die for! The room was lovely - clean, comfortable beds, very well appointed bathroom. Breakfast was excellent with one problem - why don't they serve fresh coffee? There is no excuse for a big coffee pot in Italy. I would recommend the fresh marmalade though! We never ate dinner there as we considered the food to be overpriced. In the square opposite there's a lovely restaurant/cafe serving the freshest food around, at extremely reasonable prices - Restaurant Angelina Lauro, try it if you are fed up of the usual highly priced pizza and pasta in Sorrento. Finally, on departure, is one of the hotel's greatest features, convenience! Just a five minute walk to buses for the Amalfi coast and the Circumvesuviana for Pompeii, Ercolano, and Naples.
