This wonderful B&B is nicely located in the center Piano di Sorrento, which is about 10 min (5 walk + 5 train, if you time it right) east of Sorrento, making it a great starting point for visiting the Amalfi Coast, Sorrento Peninsula, or Pompeii. There are two bedrooms available, one large room on the main street side and a slightly smaller room with an ocean view. The bathroom is shared with the guests in the other room. The beds are very comfortable and there is A/C in the rooms, which is essential in the July/August heat. The apartment is charmingly decorated with vintage furniture and artwork, and there is plently of space to store your things.
The apartment is also shared with the owner, Rachele, who is an excellent host and treats you with respect and kindness. She works very hard to keep the place clean and make you feel at home. She also recommended some excellent restaurants in the Piano area, and called ahead to the owners to make sure we were taken care of :) Also be sure to grab sandwiches from her grocer downstairs before you head out on a day trip. For only 3 euro you can have a nice lunch sandwich with mozzarella, tomato, basil, and many types of meat. Breakfast is great, and is served at the time of your choosing from 7-9 with coffee the way you want it and some excellent treats (the ricotta cannoli were amazing).
There are a few minor things that could have improved our stay: There is no Wifi in the apartment, which for younger people today is very useful to quickly check your email, social media, or make a Skype call. There is an ethernet cable in the bedrooms if you have a laptop, but those of who travel lightly with just a phone or tablets are out of luck. However, Rachele will kindly let you use her computer if necessary. Also, sharing the bathroom in the hallway reduces the level of privacy a bit, and can be a bit problematic if the guests in both rooms are rushing to get ready at the same time. Prepare to be a social at breakfast as well :)
All-in-all this B&B is recommended and we would stay again. Grazie Rachele!
