By far this was the best hotel we stayed at during our recent trip to Italy. We had just come off a 9 day Cosmos "Splendors of Italy" tour (an extremely well run tour) and as an extension, had a few days in Sorrento. We were initially surprised at the location, half way up a mountain, but it was well worth it. Stunning views over the bay of Naples to Mt Vesuvius as well over Sorrento. Large pool, very professional staff and great rooms.
We were a family of four (two teenagers) and had booked two rooms. Because the hotel was full, the manager asked if we could share a room and was not pushy. We agreed ( much to the managers relief) and thought, oh well, what does it matter. The next night after a few guests had left, my wife & I were upgraded to the best room in the hotel for the rest of our stay (don't know where the kids went) by a very grateful manager!
The free shuttle bus into town every 30 mins made the location not a problem. Service is a pleasure in this hotel and the staff seemed very happy indicating good relations between management & staff. Australian hotels leave a lot to be desired.
If you are looking for a unique place to stay in Sorrento, Italy, this is one to consider.
If you can see the ocean, it's a good room.
