“Ettore and the dolcevita B&B”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

HI I spent ten days in Sorrento and stayed at the Dolcevita B&B, THe reason I picked the dolcevita was I read a lot of reviews about the place. I have to say I agree with all the peoples reviews as It was just right for me and my wife. It was at the center of everything. Ettore , who owns the place was one helpful person, the rooms were spotless thanks to Anna Marie who did a great job. THe rooms have double glazing so you can shut out the laughter and music that came up from the narrow street below, but I loved the sounds from the street. As we sat on our little balcony with our glass of wine, we would speak to the vendors below and joked with them. We made friends with quite a few of them. Where you have your breakfast is just at the corner and it really is only two euros for the tea or coffee and croissant, but there is lots more places you can go to all at reasonable prices should you choose to do so. This is my second article on Sorrento as I just enough of the place and the friendliness of the people. I would highly recommend the Dolcevita for it's atmosphere cleanliness and it's location , you could not find a better place .

The manager was extremely helpful and very friendly, offered lots of advice on excursions, where to eat, drink and shop and where to avoid getting ripped off on prices.

The B&B was always clean, rooms were comfortable with all the facilities you would need.

Great location, plenty of shops, bars and cafes on the doorstep. Only negative thing I'd say is that it could be quite loud in the morning when the market stalls were setting up. But that's hardly the fault of Dolce Vita!

We were in Sorrento last week for a wedding and stayed at B&B DolceVIta for seven nights. It was really easy to find, just off the main square. When we arrived we were made to feel right at home by the owner, Ettore. He gave us lots of great advice about what to do and where to eat in Sorrento. He was really keen for us to make the most of our stay, and gave us advice on how to make our money go a bit further (such as taking sandwiches from Sorrento to Pompeii and Capri). We shared all our advice with the rest of the wedding party as it was so useful.
We stayed in the superior room and it was a good size and very clean. We had a balcony which was big enough for a table and chairs so was lovely to sit out in the evenings. Although the B&B is right in the centre our room was very quiet. The balcony also faces the back of the building so you don't hear any noise from the main street.
We would definitely stay in B&B DolceVita again - thanks Ettore!

Room Tip: The superior room has a balcony which was lovely to sit out on.

We stayed 3 nights at DolceVita and we wouldn't change anything about it. Ettore was a great host as soon as we arrived! He really cared that we have a good time in Sorrento and surrounding areas. He gave us great tips (buy a sandwich in Sorrento before going to Capri or Pompeii - great lunch at a reasonable price!) and told us where to go for good dinners. The orange room and bathroom was spacious and face the busy street. We never had a problem sleeping as the windows are double glazed. The location was great as there were tons of cute stores to buy souvenirs and limoncello. The B&B is not too far from the bus stop and getting there was a breeze. I would highly recommend staying here while visiting Sorrento.

Our Superior room was so quiet and peaceful it was always a shock to walk out in to the bustling Via San Cesareo! This is the perfect location to explore the town and be able to pop back for a rest or to get changed. Our room had everything you could need with a very good sized bathroom and fresh towels daily. But the best thing about the B&B is the friendly and attentive owner, Ettore, who was always a real pleasure to chat to and gave us so many great tips. If we ever come back, this is where you'll find us!

We spent 10 days here, the excellent location in the very heart of Sorrento. My soul was singing as I opened and peered from the balcony overlooking the beating heart of Sorrento. The music and Life that sang through me from the street below will never be forgotten. Ettore is very friendly, accommodating, and helpful with his suggestions. We loved every minute of our stay and the only problem was we had to leave. Thank You Ettore, I will ♥♪♪Torno Sorrento♪♫ very soon.

Room Tip: our room was the largest overlookingVia San Cesareo

We had a great experience staying at B&B DolceVita in Sorrento. It's very centrally located and the room was really nice and comfortable. It's easy walking distance to the train and bus stations and the port. Ettore is a great host. He spent a long time with us when we first arrived and made a lot of very helpful suggestions about sightseeing. He also went out of his way to tell us about a big bike race one of days we were there and how that would impact getting around. I highly recommend DolceVita.
