We stayed at La Pergola for a fortnight after reading the positive reviews here. First impressions were very poor as we were allocated Room 14 which was tiny and the next morning it was over-run by ants. We were offered another ground floor room which was larger but I was concerned about security so decided to splash out 104 euro to uograde to a room on 1st floor with balcony which was much better.
The dining room was presided over by Raphael who was a superb host, very friendly and with an excellent sense of humour. All the other staff were very friendly too and the rooms were very clean and we had regular changes of towels. The food was very good at dinner the first week but seemed to decline in quality later (possibly as there were a number of large groups in - which is a point to note as some of these were noisy). Still perfectly edible though however they do seem to have a fondness for tinned peas and watermelon was the fruit choice on too many occasions. There is a weekly 'Romantic Evening' with a buffet in the garden but this is ruined by an appalling musician who plays a workstation keyboard and sings badly. In fact the worst thing about the hotel was the exisitence of inane piped music in the garden, on the roof (great views!) and in the restaurant. The breakfasts were fairly basic but ok.
The location is around 1 mile from the centre of Sorrento and a little less to the bus and rail station. As peple have mentioned use the back road rather than the main Corso Italia road which is very busy an fumy. There is an infrequent (and somewhat unreliable) 'C' bus from a stop near the hotel or a regular (every 20 mins) 'A' bus on the main road. Fares are set at 2.40 euro for up to a 45 min ride or you can get an all day ticket for 7.20. We usually walked in if we were just going to the centre.
So overall a nice hotel which gets 4 stars from me mainly because of the great staff (and some good risotto and pasta!)
