The location is a short walk up the hill, but worth it for the quiet and the views. They also have parking which is scarce and pricey in Italy. We drove all over Italy, but would not recommend driving to Sorrento or beyond. It was quite a hair raising ordeal and we should have left the car in Orvieto. That... More

We stayed 4 nights at Hotel Desiree. Staff is friendly and helpful, and the rooms are large, clean, and comfortable. Our room had a terrace with beautiful views of Mt.Vesuvius and the bay. The hotel is an easy and scenic 20 minute walk from the train station. Breakfast was good-cereals, yogurt, fresh fruit, cheese, and an assortment of baked goods.... More

We always stay at Hotel Desiree when in Sorrento,if we are in luck and it's available. The owners and staff are just so friendly and helpful, the prices are excellent and the location is just magnificent. It's set somewhat up the hill Via Capo heading up the cliffs out of town, but we love the ritual of that walk with... More

Let; face it basic 2* hotel, so one can't expect standard of luxurious accommodation. It is basic hotel with limited facillities, but very pleasant, beautifully located on the cliff with panoramic views on the Sorrento bay and price that can hardly be match with hotel in this category in Sorrento). Pros: Beautiful views, Private beach accessed by the lift only... More

Hotel Desiree is amazing!!! My boyfriend and I stayed at various hotels in Rome, Sorrento, Florence, and Venice....and of them all Hotel Desiree was by far the best. The rooms are a decent size and in decent shape...but what makes this place one of a kind is the mind-blowing views, fantastic service, and private beach!! We had a room with... More

The Hotel Desiree is on the edge of town---although within walking distance, there is a bus that comes to take you into town. Parking is right there which is great. The room was okay but without much of a view, but when we asked, were moved to a room with a nice look at the ocean and of the beach... More

This was an excellent small hotel perched on a cliff above the Mediterranean. Our room had a balcony and window with an excellent sea view. Our hosts were very helpful and extremely pleasant. The room was clean, well furnished and well tended during our four night stay. Bus stops right out front with access to the entire Amalfi Coast, and... More

Hotel Desiree was a great find. Great value for money and excellent staff who happily give advice and info on trips and places to eat, we were not disappointed by any of their recommendations. The room was a bit dated but clean and comfortable exactly what we needed after 5 days rushing around Rome. The views were stunning and we... More

My best friend and I stayed here early October. Loved this little hotel. It is a little hike uphill out of town, but it is not bad. And, it is so much cooler up the hill. Our room was spotless and the bathroom was so large. Loved the tub and shower. We had french doors that over looked the sea... More

We loved this little hotel. It was a breath of fresh air during a long trip. The room was old fashioned and quirky but very clean and comfortable. The staff was so helpful and friendly, they knew all of the best places to eat and shop. The bus stopped just outside the door and was so conveinent for the town... More
