Only a ten to twenty minute walk from Sant' Agnello train station, my boyfriend and I had no problems lugging our bags around to get to the hotel. When we got there, it was lovely, with very nice staff who helped us with a few hiccups along the way, and our room was great! We booked a double room without bathroom and without breakfast, however actually got an ensuite AND breakfast included, for a very decent price. We stayed for 2 nights and really wished we had stayed longer! Our bed was comfortable although it was actually two singles, not a double bed, but our view from the window was glorious, looking out over the sea and we had good air conditioning.
The hotel had a rooftop with sunbeds on which were free for all guests, which was so relaxing! And it has it's own beach too, which you can get discounted tickets for entrance and a sunbed for 8 euros instead of the standard 10, however we just paid 5 euros for entrance, and not the sunbed, although they do make that difficult on the beach with little space for anyone without a bed.
I recommend the bar/restaurant above the beach, looking out over the amazing view. You just go right out of the hotel and keep walking towards the sea and you'll see it perched on the edge of the cliff there. The food is very nice and service is great. The cheeseburgers were to die for - especially after nearly 2 weeks of practically nothing but pasta and pizza! It was very refreshing and filling!
Breakfast was included and was from 7.30 till 10 am which we thought were great times - enough for a lie in, and it was a really really nice breakfast too, with a wide range of things to choose from: Croissants, bread, jam, butter, honey, cereal, fruit salad, juice and water, and cake! It really filled the spot!
I highly recommend going to Capri on a boat from the marina in the centre of Sorrento which leave in the morning, every half an hour or so, till 11.45, then there's one at 1.10pm onwards I think. The last one back to Sorrento is at 7pm from Capri, just about 3 hours was plenty for us, as we got the 1.10 and it takes half an hour on the boat.
To get to the marina from the hotel it is fairly easy to walk 30-45 mins, which is only okay because it's a nice place to stroll around anyway, but there are apparently buses, but just to warn you we did buy a ticket for a bus and waited for half an hour and it didn't come, and we didn't see a single bus our whole time there, so not sure it's worth buying one because they barely exist!
Anyway, the boat to Capri and back is a fairly expensive 30 euros, but it's worth it (in hindsight) as it's so beautiful. When you're there it's DEFINITELY worth paying at extra 15 euros for the boat tour all the way around the island - It's the only way to see the beauty of it properly, and you will get to see one of the seven wonders of the world, the Blue Grotto, and also the amazing White Grotto. We couldn't go in the Blue Grotto though, as it was high tide, but find out if you can!
On one day we took a bus from outside Sorrento train station to Amalfi (driving along the beautiful Amalfi coast), which cost 7 euros for a return ticket which lasted 24 hours. The last bus back from Amalfi is at midnight.
I thoroughly recommend this hotel and the Sorrento area itself too!
