THe Cesare Augusto on the Via dei Aranci is only 5 minutes walk away from Piazzo di Tasso, the main square of Sorrento. The Sorrento railway station is also only 5 minutes away and Herculaneum, Pompeii and Naples can be easily accessed.The rooms at the back overlook the garden and another busy but less noisy road than Via Aranci. These rooms have clear views of Vesuvius and to islands. When we were there (mid April) the 6th floor rooftop pool was not open but the views from this floor over Sorrento to the sea and Vesuvius are beautiful.
The rooms have solid and well maintained furniture and, although a little tired, the bathrooms are scrupulously clean. Our room, and I think almost all, had a tiled balcony with a neat metalwork table and chairs.The reception area is welcoming, as are the staff. In fact the staff are a main highlight of the hotel with efficient and friendly cleaning staff and waiters.
The evening meals were good and were carefully served and the breakfast has a good range. There was some effort to reflect local cuisine and there is a well priced wine list.
The downsides were the poorly functioning air conditioning which meant the balcony door had to be left open- but then we heard too much noise from the road.
Overall, a good choice for a central hotel.
