This is a very pleasant hotel with friendly and helpful staff and attractive décor. The room with air conditioning and TV is a good size with balcony. Safe provided. Stocked fridge available but can’t be used for personal drinks, except by special arrangement. We were here on a b/b basis. The breakfast is good with hot options and good other selection. It is to a good standard although not the best breakfast we’ve experienced. There is a lounge with a bar. At the rear is a swimming pool which is of a reasonable size. It has very pleasant appearance and is fairly open, although enclosed. Plenty of seating was available. There is a small bar for drinks and snacks here. A towel for the pool available for 3 Euro over a week. The hotel is located on the main road ‘Corso Italia’ leading into Sorrento which is very busy and quite narrow. It takes about 15 minutes brisk pace walk down to Tasso Square which is the main centre. Quite narrow pavements. The town itself is very busy and bustling. Usual tourist crowds. Narrow alleys lead off with tourist shops and restaurants. Along the main road on the far side of the square has some very up-market clothes shops. There are many restaurants which are reasonably priced, not cheap but not expensive. Not many restaurant options on the road from the hotel down to Tasso Square. However just a little way down from the hotel on the opposite side is a place called Il Ritrovo. Small and quite plain but slightly atmospheric with very good food, better priced than in the town. Worth trying. Capri is worth visiting but not a cheap day out. Worthwhile to go up to Anacapri when there and cable ride to top (Open seating with bar in front). Public bus ride to Amalfi is good value but bus is crowded and can queue for an hour to get on it. But beautiful coast line. Get on by Train Station which is a good 10 minutes walk toward Tasso Square. Tour would provide commentary and viewing stops but incredibly more expensive. Transport is quite cheap. Train to Pompii and Herculaneum is easy and reasonably cheap. Vesuvius worth visiting but real slog up to top from entrance (8 Euros) which takes possibly 20 minutes. Bus from Ercano to entrance costs 10 Euro return. Journey is about 25 minutes. We took tourist train around streets. 6 Euro’s each and lasts about 30 minutes. Very pleasant and gives a certain oversight to the place. But often very busy and may need to book for later.
