We stayed here for four nights during Feb - The hotel is amazingly quiet during this part of the year.
The reception is efficient in check-in and they upgraded us to a sea view room. The hotel lobby is grand and the sea view from the balcony is mesmerizing - We could see mount Vesuvius along with the gulf of Naples from our balcony !!!
However, the rooms are a bit of a let down with normal CRT television (no LCDs), poor space utilization and just about comfortable mattresses. The room service is pretty good and prompt.
The hotel's restaurant is very good in preparing risottos and soups but their Neapolitan pizza is not that great. The breakfast spread is very American with a generous spread - the eggs (both boiled and omelet) are a disappointment.
The hotel is close to Sorrento train station and a few minutes walk to the city center. The cabs charge atrociously high prices both to and from the hotel so we preferred to walk our way around the small town !!!
The hotel bar is well stocked and the fire place in lobby becomes a scenic place in the evening with wood fire and piano performance. Sipping drinks in this atmosphere was a truly memorable experience as was the swim in the indoor pool.
Overall, we had a memorable stay. The hotel offers a great views with a friendly staff. However, the quality of rooms can be improved.
