“Wonderful time at Palazzo Tasso, Sorrento”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

My wife and I and our two adult children spent 5 nights in Sorrento at Palazzo Tasso and had an absolutely wonderful experience. The hotel itself is in a fantastic location in the center of Sorrento where you can truly get a feel for the ebb and flow of the town right outside your window. The rooms are immaculately clean and minimalist and the pictures on Trip Advisor are indicative of what you'll get. Given that we didn't intend to spend a lot of time in our room, we were looking for location, cleanliness, comfort at a good price vs. a high luxury stay. As it relates to our experience...it was 5-star. The staff is fantastic and kudos to both Pepe and Silvana for making our stay special. The handled everything from recommendations on great restaurants (and they were fantastic), day trip recommendations and logistics to Pompeii, Mt. Vesuvius and Ecolano, Amalfi and Positano to helping us track down my daughter's lost luggage (thanks Delta!) for basically the entire visit. Most of all, we had tried to book a Suite for the four of us and when we all realized that we would be too cramped in the reserved accommodation (I think this would have been fine for small children but not four adults), they went out of their way to solve the problem and make alternative arrangements at the hotel to make us feel comfortable. This was 5-star service all the way around and thanks to both Pepe and Silvana for making our Sorrento experience all the more enjoyable and memorable! By the way, breakfast is included and was perfect for our needs...not too heavy but enough variety to get us going in the morning. I highly recommend Palazzo Tasso and look forward to our return in the future.

Room Tip: Make sure you understand the configuration and match to your needs.

I traveled with my family and stayed 4 days in the hotel. Location is fantastic, right in the heart of the city, near everything by walking distance. Breakfast is ok (not great variety but has everything we need to start the day) . I would definetly come back and recommend this hotel.

Our third trip to Sorrento after a gap of 26 years. Previously we were never in the town centre so this was a huge benefit this time as it allows you to pop in and out without a long walk or bus ride to your hotel. Unlike some, we found the continental breakfast just fine, we especially like the taste of the crusty bread rolls stuffed with salami. Italian bread is generally hard and dry. After every breakfast we never felt hungry during the run up to lunchtime.

Our room was good sized, clean and adequate. The en-suite was good too - the shower had more than enough water pressure. The glazing cut out the traffic noise and I am a light sleeper. The church bells are audible but isn't that what they are for, calling to the faithful?

The Staff and Owners are so friendly and helpful.

4 stars and not 5 only because of the noise of footsteps from the main marble stairs which are the other side of your bedroom door. If you are on the very top floor then the stairs are a good form of exercise, forget the lift you'll feel the better for it.

Room Tip: The balconies are narrow so don't really count - I'd rather be 150 metres away in the main s...

A surprisingly modern design for a hotel in the middle of Sorrento. Fully refurbished and sound proofed rooms, very important given the church bells are next door. Great location in the historic quarter, ten minutes to the train station and buses. Very friendly and helpful staff.

We stayed here during our honeymoon this year. We originally booked a standard room but we were given a complimentary upgrade to a deluxe room. The staff were so nice, friendly and helpful. The hotel is also very secure as you cannot enter without a key to the front door. Our room was clean and crisp with a balcony that overlooked the entire main street. Our bedroom was modern and the bathroom was nice and big. The walls, doors and windows of each room are soundproof so it's easy to get a peaceful night sleep. Breakfast was served on the top floor. It was basic but enough to start the day with. The hotel as a whole looked very well maintained. It's close to the main shopping and dining areas, and it's a 10 minute walk to the train station and a 15 minute walk to the seaport. It was also my birthday while we were at this hotel and the staff gave us 2 bottles of champagne as a birthday gift and also congratulations on our recent marriage. This was such a nice gesture and it made my husband and I feel very special, like we were VIPs. Overall, this hotel was worth every penny and I highly recommend staying here!

The room was very clean, and the water pressure in the shower is fabulous.The location is close to all transportation, restaurants,shopping, etc. The wi-fi is reliable. Like other reviewers, I found the breakfast disappointing. I found the quality, not necessarily the variety, of the breakfast items, breads, cakes, etc. to be poor. I think I would choose to stay at a location where the reception desk is manned 24 hours a day,. It is personal preference, but on the day of our departure at 5:30 A.M., the elevator was out of service, and so we had to carry our luggage down from the 4th floor. Again, this is a non issue if one were leaving later or on a lower floor; however, it was an issue for us. I realized that 24 hour manned reception is not important unless one happens to need it. Overall, I would recommend the hotel.
