I found this hotel on line by accident when studying the Amalfi Coastal region. It was listed as a 5 *. I think many travelers expect a different kind of hotel for a 5*, one that is "posh" which this is not, but it was a PERFECT 5* for us!
Balcony with a view! Beautifully tiled throughout. A bath not large, but straight out of an Italian marble bath display. I wish I could have packed it up to take home! The woodwork, the furniture and the floors were gorgeous throughout. Everything is spotlessly clean. The old elevators were beautiful and worked better than most new ones. The staff was warm, friendly, helpful. One could not ask for more. The breakfasts were generous and good. The dinners, served in the large dining room, although not gourmet, were well prepared, convenient and relaxing. On a couple of evenings after eating a main meal during mid-day, we ate sandwiches with drinks in the bar - also delightful staff with good service. I do think that the notion that anyone - even gauche Americans- would choose a sandwich instead of an large evening dinner was rather a curiousity:) But we enjoyed it. In warmer weather, the outdoor garden is a perfect spot for afternoon tea, or drinks.
We love this hotel, and will stay there again when we return to Sorrento. They even follow the travelers book exchange tradition - hall table on each floor where one deposits a book when finished reading it and can choose one someone else has donated to be read. I thought that tradition had died - but not here!!!
