Our recent visit to Sorrento was greatly enhanced by our week long stay at the Hotel Alpha. Our room was very clean and comfortable, and the breakfasts and evening meals were of a good standard, plentiful, and varied. All of the staff went out of their way to be helpful and pleasant - the restaurant staff in particular deserve a special mention for the way they took care of us. The hotel has a very nice outside pool and bar surrounded by lemon and orange trees.
Situated in the suburb of St Agnello the hotel offers respite from the crowds and traffic of Sorrento city centre, whilst remaining within easy reach of all the tourist hot spots. Immediately outside of the hotel you can catch a bus to the old Sorrento town centre/market and to the harbour (10/15 mins) for ferries to the Islands of Capri, Ischia, or a cruise along the Amalfi coastline. Within ten minutes walk of the Hotel you can catch a train to Naples, Herculaneum, Pompei and Vesuvius, or get a bus for the cliff top drive to Positano, Amalfi and Salerno. The public transport is frequent and very cheap, although the local bus time tables seem to be "approximate" probably due to the heavy traffic in the city centre. You can walk to the town centre in about 25 minutes, but this may be a very hot experience in the middle of the day, and some roads have no pavements so the traffic can be uncomfortably close at times.
Overall, I would say the Hotel Alpha offers a perfect base for exploring Sorrento and the surrounding attractions of this part of Italy
