We stayed at this hotel from Oct 6-10 as our base location for our trip to the Amalfi Coast. The location is superb, right in the heart of Sorrento and close to the Circumvesuveum train station, lots of restaurants and shops. From the hotel, it was a 5 minute walk to the train/ bus terminal where we departed for our day trips to Herculaneum, Positano and Amalfi.
The hotel is very elegant and picturesque, situated above some old ruins and a valley gorge. There is a beautiful garden where you can enjoy the excellent breakfast indoors or outside and the pool area is meticulously maintained and surrounded by lemon and tangerine trees. Many times we returned from a busy day of touring and crashed out by the pool to recuperate. All the staff were very helpful and friendly (special mention to Mario, who tended the pool bar). The room was spotless and thankfully had a full size bath and shower (versus our Rome hotel). The view was nothing special, but expected as we only booked their standard room. There is free wi-fi service in the hotel lobby and by the pool.
Overall, an excellent hotel with a central location and an amazing staff!
