Have just returned from 7 nights half board in a 'Standard City View' room. This hotel has probably the best location of any in Sorrento with a terrace sea view towards Vesuvius and Naples that would be difficult to match. You can find some good deals at this top class hotel if you look around (e.g. for UK guests have a look at Riviera Travel, who use this as a base for a tour of Pompeii, Capri and the Bay of Naples). Opposite the hotel is a modern coach station and underground car park, which can be a bit noisy at times, but you can't have such a central location and no noise. Plazza Lauro is immediately in front of the hotel. The other end of this small square is on Corsa Italia (the main shopping street) and turning to the right along Corsa Italia it is just a very short walk to Plazza T Tasso (the main centre of Sorrento). You have a pharmacy and supermarket within a few moments of the hotel, which is great. We found most of the staff to be very friendly and they include some real characters who make your stay that bit more enjoyable and memorable. Nothing seemed to be too much trouble, the buffet breakfast was very good and we always found something appealing on the dinner menu, which changes each day. It is true that this hotel hosts some weddings and that occasionally some parts of the dining facilities may be unavailable. However, we did not find that a problem and we found the food of a consistent good quality even when the hotel was busy. Having breakfast on a terrace overlooking the Bay of Naples takes some beating. There is also some added interest in that a small harbour, Marina Piccola is immediately below, adjacent to the hotel's swimming pool and jetty. This harbour is used by various ferries and is an off loading point for some cruise ships. Road access to the harbour is a whole block away from the hotel, so you are not bothered by the traffic in and out. Overall, this is one of the best hotels we have used and we hope to return.
