First, I think next to Anacapri, Sorrento is the best place to stay while visiting the Amalfi Coast. The town of Sorrento has narrow cobblestone alleways and is very lively. Second, because it is so lively it is a little noisy so staying outside of the downtown area is probably advisable for all but those who can afford to stay in the more luxurious hotels located right on the water.

Re: the Grand Vesuvio, we stayed there for four nights at just over 200 Euros per night. Overall our impression was that of a large hotel geared toward tour buses - it was not at all cozy. Everything was big - the breakfast room, the bar, the rooms, the bathrooms. Normally a large room/bathroom is a good thing, but this placed lacked personality.

With that said, it was clean, the beds were comfortable and the shuttle bus to the town was frequent enough that you never felt constrained by the bus schedule. The view was nice but for the best views try to stay in the rooms on the right end of the hotel (as you look at the hotel from the front, stay to the right end which I believe are rooms numbered 40 and up but I am not positive). FYI - the hotel does not have access to the ocean so if you are a beach person, this is probably not for you.

We were able to get a room here when every place else was full so the large size was good in that way.

In summary, a solid and safe fallback if you can't get into any of the more intimate inns.
