I returned from Sorrento yesterday where we had been booked into Hotel Tourist by Thomas Cook
I had simply expected greater comfort than the hard beds and modest space that our twin room afforded and much more peace at night than the front facing situation allowed. The traffic is non-stop and loud and even with ear plugs sleep was difficult and never uninterrupted. I felt jaded
and so facing the rigours of a holiday in high temperatures was very challenging. The pool was a welcome bonus but closed very early at 6pm. The standard of cleanliness throughout was very high and the staff were generally pleasant and helpful. Breakfast was varied and the buffet was plentiful. The evening meal was adequate and good value, costed by the hotel at eu15.00, for 3 courses, but not an exciting aspect of the holiday. Even though situated conveniently for getting to the centre (0.75km) and transport stations, a hotel does not do its job if you can't rest, relax or sleep. Travel agents should not offer it to package-travellers and guests should be wary of Hotel Tourist if they want or need to rest during their stay in hectic Sorrento.
