Stayed for a week in mid-September, while visiting Sorrento for a wedding. Staff had been very prompt and helpful in handling our booking and answering our queries by email in advance, and couldn't have been more friendly, attentive and informative during our stay. For a bustling and beautiful tourist destination, Hotel Desiree is in a great location, only a 10-minute... More

Before we arrived, all communication with this hotel was clear, prompt and helpful. It would be very hard to find more friendly and helpful staff, who speak extremely good English. We had a lovely room (10) with a small ante- room and a balcony overlooking the bay. It was clean and quiet with the sound of a waterfall when the... More

We choose Sorrento to wind down after 10 whirlwind days in Hungary and Italy and Hotel Desiree was the perfect choice. Before we arrived we had corresponded with the hotel staff via email - replies were prompt and helpful. Then, I walked in the door shaken after discovering I was pickpocketed on the train platform in Naples. Cassandra graciously helped... More

On the plus side some of the sea view rooms have great views the hotel is reasonably furnished and comfortable breakfast average (not bad for Italy). it has its own small beach shared with another hotel. But in late Sepember early October the... More

We checked out how to get to this place on Google before we left Canada. Good thing as after driving thru Sorrento we just could not have turned around on the road for many miles. Loved the location of this hotel, just a few minutes walk into town. By the price we knew it was a budget hotel but our... More

First I should say, we aren't real picky people and for 65 euro a night, we only expect a clean and comfortable place- nothing fancy. Other reviews say it is a nice place so I guess the rooms on the higher levels are drastically better. We saw three rooms. Our original economy double room smelled of mildew, was dirty, and... More

We had a nice view of the sea from our balcony. The rooms are a little tired, not very updated but comfy enough. Air con worked. The towels were large and plentiful! It was clean and friendly and located in a great spot. There is parking!!!!!! We quite liked it and my coffee on the balcony was a highlight of... More

I stayed here for three days last year, and absolutely LOVED it. It is situated on Via Capo, up the cliff from the Sorrento city center... which meant less crowds, and amazing views. It is easily accessible by walk or by bus. The place is very clean and affordable. I had a corner room, from which I had a view... More

We spent one night in July. Wish we had spent two nights. Hotel Desiree is a small, well run, clean, humble hotel just up the hill from the Center of Sorrento. The staff were friendly and attentive. The room was simple and clean. The bathroom was large and clean. The shower was fabulous. The breakfast was very good and the... More
