We recently stayed at La Meridiana for 3 nights in a sea view room on the 5th floor. The room was spacious, with a long balcony and the view from there was great for seeing the sunset.
First the good - Service at the reception was excellent, especially Rosalba & Andre. They were very helpful in solving some of the issues we faced in the room (more about that in a bit) and also giving suggestions for restaurants and directions to the places we wanted to go to.
There was no hot water kettle in the room, but both of them were very helpful in giving us hot water from the espresso machine when we needed it. Andre also helped us warm some ready-to-serve food which we had carried with us, in the hotel kitchen.
The location is very convenient and 5 mins walk from the main street and restaurants and shopping areas. It is in a side street, so it is close to the city hub without being noisy.
Now the issues we had which stopped me from giving it 5 stars - Firstly, the plug point in the room, by the bed side was not working on the day we checked in. I was not in favor of charging our gadgets in the bathroom so Andre gave us a plug with more outputs which he plugged into the same spot as the tv so that we could charge our camera batteries and phones there. The faulty plug point was repaired the next day.
Secondly, the water pressure in the shower was very low on 2 days of our stay, such that the water dropped to a trickle and finally stopped for a few minutes each day. The reason we were given for this was that the hotel was fully booked and most guests turned on their shower at the same time which caused this problem. This problem persisted throughout our stay.
Overall we loved the reception staff, room size and cleanliness and hotel location and would surely recommend it to others visiting Sorrento.
