“This is an excellent hotel!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2011

This is an excellent hotel which is a 5 minute walk to the centre of Sorrento! The service was very friendly and helpful. The rooms were very comfortable with a small kitchenette, and were reasonably priced. The views of the sea and the township of Sorrento were magnificent! One of the best parts was relaxing in the pool in the late afternoon where all the guests would share their experiences of the day. I would strongly recommend this hotel to anyone.

The only problem with this hotel is its location. Not the view form the pool, the terraces or most rooms which is beautiful but its location on the 'Corner of Uncertainty' (which was one of the more positive names we gave to the hotel's position on the main coast road). How our party survived two days without injury was a blessing but it does add a bit of the bungy jumping or white water rafting adrenalin rush to a relaxing Amalfi Coast break.
The location issue also doesn't make for an easy taxi drop off or pick up and I'm not sure what you would do with your own car.
If you can safely navigate crossing the road, it's about a 15 minute walk into town, with views of the beach and fishing village below, and a further 10 to the beach and the port but add on extra 10 for the walk back up the hill. There are local buses but we didn't manage to time our return trips to catch one.
Staff were, on the whole, friendly: a warm welcome, help with getting to restaurants and the beaches including their connection with the hotel on the safer side of the road, though there was some later confusion with organising a taxi for our onward trip.
Our room was spacious, clean and comfortable and a decent breakfast was on offer. The pool is small but clean and great for the chance to cool down after that walk up the hill!

Very few positives about this hotel. The staff could certainly not be considered very friendly. The room was okay-spacious and airy but I had to ask to get someone to claen the room after our third night staying there. I was told that it was our fault that it hadn't been cleaned as we didn't get up on time. When we asked to get a cup of coffee, we were told we'd have to go somewhere else as they weren't serving any at that time.Even if everything in the hotel was fine, the major major downfall of this hotel is its location. It is on a bend on the road-crossing to the other side is just lethal. I really can't emphasise how dangerous it is-we were running across it and hoping for the best! Do not book in here-there are lots of other, safer hotels in Sorrento!

Hotel recommended. The hotel was comfortable, clean & welcoming & Staff & reception were friendly. The room was spacious with a great view & with balcony doors closed traffic noise was not a problem. While the 'pool area was small it was adequate but lacking shaded areas. The solarium also had no parosols which would have been welcomed at midday. Our biggest problem was leaving & entering the hotel. The entrance leads directly on to the very busy road with buses, cars, mopeds speeding by & the hotel is also situated on a blind corner !! There are no footpaths & no space for pedestrians to walk. There are no pedestrian crossings or speedramps & despite the two way traffic the road is very narrow. It's a 15 min walk to the centre. Our third visit to Sorrento but next time won't be staying in the Miramare - not their fault - road frontage too dangerous !!

We thought this hotel had some good features and some drawbacks. It was good value, with good rooms and friendly service. The view from our room was great and room services very good.
However, the location is a problem: it sits on a tight bend on the Via Capo (not shown correctly on the google map - it's further north, on the inside of the tight bend) and is ridiculously dangerous to arrive at (or leave) on foot.
We found it very noisy in our room, from the constant traffic (everyone loves to sound their horn approaching the tight corner!), which started up from about 6 am.
Also, we found the walk down to the town, while spectacular in views, was in parts dangerous and unpleasant fom the speeding traffic. The walk back up the hill was worse.
Idea: could the hotel offer a dedicated taxi for it's guests only? (Even if this was charged at some nominal rate it would definitely improve life and overcome the hotel's main drawback)
We also had a problem with poor Wifi in our room, which took the best part of a week to address, unfortunately without much success).
Anyway, we had a nice time despite these drawbacks and we thank the staff for their friendliness and good work.

Stayed for six day in this wonderful hotel above Sorrento. Amazing view from our patio. Large, clean room with a terrace that overlooked the Bay of Naples and Sorrento - amazing. Breakfast was good, but you had to pay extra for cappucino :(......Short walk to Sorrento town after crossing the busy road in front of the hotel. You do get used to it though, but be careful. Gabriella at the front desk is terrific....very knowledgeble about the area and very friendly. Wonderful six days.

Room Tip: Room 401 and 402 - very quiet with big terraces

Stayed 3 nights in a 1 room apartment for 4. It was located on a very nice roof garden with a breathtaking view of the Bay of Naples. The town of Sorrento to the right, with Naples & Mount Vesuvius just visible in the distance.

The room was fairly plain but comfortable with a queen sized bed in 1 room and 2 single sofa beds in another. There was a small kitchenette and a single bathroom with a shower stall but no longbath. There was free wireless internet but you had to sit outside the room on the small patio to access it. Parking was free but you had to stop the car on a blind corner on a one-lane street and press a buzzer for the gate to open....slowly.

The hotel is quite far from town. Walking into town and even to the Marina could be done in 20 minutes (about 1 km). As mentioned before in other posts, crossing the road was a bit risky as this was the main road to Amalfi and it was only one land up and down. Traffic was heavy with big buses and fast Italian drivers and scooters.

The reception staff were always very helpful and friendly and the breakfast was satisfactory with great coffee. It was continental breakfast but you could ask for ham and cheese.

The hotel opposite had a very nice restaurant overlooking the Bay.

In short, a very good value hotel with great views, good staff but a bit far from town. Good for those who drive because free parking in Sorrento is very rare.
