After reading some of the other reviews we were a bit dubious about what to expect but the Miramare was perfectly fine.
Other reviews mentioned dated furniture, old equipment and poor towels but although I would agree with the furniture comment it was perfectly servicable - how much time do you really want to spend in your hotel anyway?? The pans, cutlery and crockery were all brand new as were the towels and bed linen. It was all really clean and maids came in every day. My only suggestion would be that there should be a kettle as microwaving water for tea wasn't particularly good neither was boiling water in a pan as it took some time. Still ... maybe I shouldn't drink so much tea! Also, personnally, I found the beds a little hard hence the lower mark on the sleep quality rating.
The hotel itself is on a bad bend with a very busy road but it was all fine with a bit of care. There was some road noise if the windows were open but it didn't bother us. It is a bit of a trek uphill to the hotel out of Sorrento but 15 mins max and the view on the way is great. Plus there are benches so far up if you really struggle. After all the pasta and pizza it's a good way to work it off! Having said that I can recommend the Verdemare Restaurant which is about 5 mins beyond the hotel. If you can't be bothered with the walk into Sorrento this restaurant is a good second choice.
Another recommendation for a restaurant is Restorante S. Antonino on Via Maria Della Grazia. This place was really great with a wide menu and not too expensive. Give it a try.
The staff at the hotel were really helpful. They spoke good English and were really friendly. All in all we had a good time and found the hotel perfectly acceptable for the price we paid and I would definitely go back again.
