“Wonderful stay in Sorrento”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2012

Stayed at Casa Astarita in Sept 2012 with my wife and our little boy. We had the "Moderna" room which was perfect for us. Nice double bed with a separate mezzanine room with bed. The B&B was very clean and friendly and had a really nice atmosphere. Our room looked on to Corsa Italia, with a balcony to watch the world go by. Once the double shutters were closed on a night time there was no noticeable street noise. Breakfast was great, with fresh coffee; bread rolls; fresh fruit and cakes. Would recommend!

I can't tell you enough how disappointed and frustrated we were with Casa Astarita's lack of any degree of professionalism and care for its patrons. We arrived and checked in with our paperwork for 3 nights (we had booked months in advance based on the information in Rick Steve's book). The next morning at breakfast we were told we only had the room for 2 nights. It did not matter at all that we had the paperwork showing that we had made the reservation. They offered to find us another room for the last night. We declined and found another one on-line. The morning we had to leave we also had booked a tour to Capri and had to leave a little after 8. Breakfast usually starts at 8 and we had planned to turn in our key, take care of the bill, and store our luggage with them until we returned that evening. The reception/dining area was not open even open at 8:15. Even though we heard voices from behind the door they would not answer our knock. We ended up having to lug our luggage to our car (a few blocks away) and leave the key with a note at the door. There was nothing about their actions that resembled professionalism and I will continue to share the details of our horrific experiences to anyone who will listen,

Sorrento is an awesome place and this B&B is just right to make the most of it. The location is great and the rooms are beautiful. Rick Steve's calls Casa Astarita a 'gem' and he is right. Don't hesitate to stay here. The hosts are just awesome, so nice and ready to help.

I had booked a room months in advance, received the respective confirmation and was very much looking forward to my stay at the Casa Astarita. Two days (!) before my arrival, I received an e-mail that my reservation has been cancelled - the hotel is fully booked. Although they organized an alternative accomodation in Sorrento - I have never experienced such a poor service. What a huge disappointment.

We stayed at Casa Astarita in April and our daughter stayed again in August. Both couples loved this for comfort, convenience, and connecting with other travelers.

Room Tip: We had a small room off the breakfast area which opened on a back courtyard. It was quiet. Our dau...

Arrived at Casa Astarita in September of this year (2011) with a confirmed reservation for two nights. Made reservation the previous April. Was told that they would not honor our reservation for the second night because "a family needed all the rooms". Tried to place us (two couples) in another "hotel" that, speaking generously, had a very unsavory appearance in a marginal neighborhood. After three hours of useless discussion with the Casa Astarita staff member, we finally made our own arrangements with the Hotel Del Corso down the street. Much better place overall with numerous places to sit inside and outside to enjoy a glass of wine.

Very nice old-style hotel. Very good service. Breakfast home-made style. Very convenient in a trip to the Amalfi Coast.
