Perfect view They discounted on price of the room and the adjacent beautiful restaurant and the parking spot. We enjoyed our... More

Most of the hotels in Sorrento are found high on the cliffs in the hustle and bustle of the crowds of tourists that flock to Sorrento every summer. Marina Grande also caters for the mass tourist market and gets extremely overcrowded. However, down in Marina Piccola is a single hotel that is part of a different and very special community....

One of the rooms smelled like cigarettes and they just sprayed the room with febreeze, the towels were ripped and they charged us for using the air conditioning. The wi-fi sucks but the... More

Nevertheless, amazing views of Vesuvius and Capri and great location on the harbour! Rooms were clean and spacious (4 people rooms) but shower... More

My boyfriend and I were there a year ago with no reservations and they quickly accommodated us to a lovely room on the top floor facing the sea. It is worth paying the little extra for the sea view so you can have the feel of the coast right at your room, and as a bonus you can see the... More
