“Ideal location, but lacks air conditioning.”
Reviewed 6 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

The apartment is in a perfect location for someone who wants to be in the middle of the hustle and bustle of the main square in Sorrento.
The size of the appartment was perfect for a family of four, or more ( doubles and a twin) which as two teenagers who needed separate rooms.
The kitchen was basic, and this was accompanied with a outside terrace and both could do with an update to the furnishings.
The main bedrooms bed was not the most comfortable, and it sagged during the night.
Unfortunately,there was no installed air conditioning, and at the end of July the heat was unbearable. Although there was a portable air conditioner, which was inadequate.
Apart from these few problems, the location was perfect.

Hello Paul,
Thank you very much to take time to write a detailed review. Grazie.
I completely agree with your feed back; the apartment needs to be equipped with centralized air conditioning.
I hope to meet you again.
Saluti,
Mario

“Large traditional style apartment in the heart of Sorrento”

This apartment was ideal for our family of 5 - One grandmother, 2 parents and teenage boys.
It had everything we needed - decent kitchen, decent shower, 2 toilets and big bedrooms. Also it had sufficient wifi for the kids. The outside balcony was lovely and quiet although too hot to use in the day. Inside the dining room was big and looked onto piazza tasso. It was noisy late into the night but the atmosphere was great so we didn't mind that.
When we were there it was hot, really hot, even at night the temp was above 30C and it was humid which took a bit of getting used to, even with the fan and the portable aircon unit. However as the locals were complaining about the heat we think that usually this wouldn't be so much of a problem.
Mario was brilliant. Friendly and recommended places to eat and see around. He was also very flexible with when we arrived and we left.
The apartment was ideally situated, we'd stay there again, but maybe not in the height of summer!

“Central location”
Reviewed 9 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We really enjoyed our stay in Apartment Melany and for those who want a central location in Sorrento, it is ideally situated. It’s on the second floor of a block overlooking Piazza Tasso and the Corso Italia, a short walk to trains and buses. It’s close (vertically) to the port for ferries, (but for those who do not want to walk down steps and steep roads there are buses that go down to the port). Restaurants, cafes and food shops are literally on the doorstep and it is very close to the old part of town. The main drawback of the location is that it could be noisy, particularly at the weekend (although the square and Corso are closed to most traffic in the evening). Bells from the church opposite ring out at 7.00 (not always heard) and 8.00 (always heard), so you don’t need an alarm clock!

The apartment is very spacious and airy (although there is no built-in air-conditioning, which we would have appreciated as it was quite hot and humid when we were there). The bedrooms are large with high ceilings and tiled floors with comfortable beds; two of them have large windows with tiny balconies which look out onto the square and the Corso. There is a good dining room with large window and tiny balcony overlooking Piazza Tasso. However, the lounge area is quite small and dark with a single sofa that only seats three – not that we ever sat there.

The kitchen was adequate, but lacked some equipment. Its only worktop was very small and we had to buy a sharp kitchen knife and a gas lighter for the hob. There was a washing machine and iron, but no ironing board. The bathroom is small but works well and we appreciated having a second separate WC with wash-hand basin.

There’s a good sized south facing terrace area at the back, with four comfortable chairs, two sun-loungers (one of which was broken) and a table and chairs for eating outside. It was pleasantly tranquil, but we didn’t make much use of it due to lack of shade in a morning and at lunchtime.

The agent, Mario Acanfora, has excellent English and was very welcoming and helpful. He fixed a couple of minor problems willingly and quickly. He also had some good recommendations for restaurants.
