“Brilliant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

A friend and I stayed at the Palazzo Tasso for three nights, and I would wholeheartedly recommend the experience. On our arrival, Silvana checked us in, took out a map, and gave us a lot of really useful information about what to do and how to get there - much valued because we were travelling in the low season. In fact, all the hotel staff we encountered were extremely friendly.

The hotel is located in the heart of Sorrento, close to shops, the train station and the boat port. The rooms are spacious and immaculate. Wifi in the room was the fastest we've enjoyed on our seven week trip, and the satellite tv has enough channels to keep everyone happy. Our room also included a safe and a fridge, both of which were handy.

In all, a very comfortable and entirely stress-free stay. Thank you!

We had a quadruple room which was quite small. They just put two single portable beds in the room. One at the foot of the main bed and one at the side. This made it quite difficult to walk around the room. We did only use it to sleep in however as the weather was fine and we spent most of the time sight seeing and shopping. The front desk is not manned after 9pm but you have a key for entry. There are quite a few steps but there is a small elevator if you need it, especially for the luggage. Silvana gave us great directions from the train station which was only a 5-10 minute walk. Breakfast is lovely with cereals, coffee, cakes, yoghurt, juice, fruits etc. would stay there again in summer but not in a quad room. Great view of street.

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.
