We stayed at Villa Elisa in July of this year. It is indeed a wonderful location and Antonio is very friendly and courteous. On the first morning we had a real problem with our mobile phones in Melbourne and Antonio really helped us sort it out, we couldnt have phoned Australia without his help. That said, our room was on the main floor, and the only light and air comes through the double doors which open onto the courtyard, there are no windows, so when the doors are shut there is no air or light. There is an air conditioner however we like to sleep with natural air. Villa Elisa is located right on the busy square, so if you leave the doors open you will get a lot of traffic noise at night, also some noise from the restaurant next door. Payment is in cash and there are no receipts. We paid Antonios mother, Josephine who then later said to us we had only paid her 100 Euros less. It was an uncomfortable situation however we carefully described the notes we had given her and she accepted we had paid her the full amount. I would advise travellers to take a photo of the transactions on your phones or ipads to avoid any misunderstandings in the future, as otherwise you wont have any record of what you have paid. I would advise anyone staying at Villa Elisa to get a room on the first floor, away from the traffic and noise from the restaurant.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Located in the most beautiful square of Sorrento are some attractive Mediterranean-style studio apartments (each with its own combined living and kitchen area), giving onto a pretty private courtyard which is full of flowers and plants from early spring until the late autumn. Private transport is not necessary due to the close proximity of the apartments to bus, train and ferry services. In this way, the island of Capri, the city of Naples, the ancient Roman cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum as well as the stunning Amalfi Coast are all easily accessible.The apartments enjoy a superb central location in the very heart of Sorrento. In just a few steps you can reach the little lanes of the old town with charming shops and cafés; the cloister of St. Francis with its concerts and exhibitions; excellent seafood restaurants and a small beach and bathing area. The lively main square of the town with its beautiful atmosphere is very close by. Alternatively, within an easy ten minute walk you can find yourself in the quaint fishing village of Marina Grande. ... more less
