I stayed at this hotel and liked it. Good genuine family orientated staff who aren't stiff necked like you find in some hotels, neither are they patronising or gushing but normals Joes. The hotel has nice clean rooms, good food,excellent swimming pool, good free internet access, great room balcony from which you can watch the busy Sorrento night life. The drinks were also quite reasonably priced and I certainly hope to go back there some day. Some maniac's review below carried on about a young waiter's suit being too big for him. Well what if it was, perhaps he's not really a professional waiter but someone working their way through University and learning the trade therefore he wears what he can afford or can get his hands on, like most of us making our way in the world at his age. Better a loose jacket than a stuffed shirt! If you are looking for the Hilton, with everybody bowing and scraping and being condescending then this isn't the hotel for you. The hotel receptionist might be a bit laid back, but in a nice way. Judging by the amount of tips I saw piled up on the reception desk on the day we left the reception staff must be pleasing somebody, including me. There was also nothing wrong with the mattress, my room looked happy and I enjoyed serving myself at breakfast and going back for seconds. If you are looking for a good, competively price hotel to stay at with genuine staff who have character, nice clean rooms, good food, etc, then this is the hotel for you. PS I might be English but I have stayed hotels all over Europe and this one is a good one.
