“The name is beautiful . . .”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2013

and that's where it ends . . .We were initially put in a room not connected to the main hotel. It was VERY, wary tiny and we could not put our suitcases anywhere. I decided to take a shower. The shower had glass doors and they actually both came off in my hands as I was trying to close the door. The shower was no more than 20inches by 20 inches. My husband would have never fit in there. Anyway - long story short and we were put in an apartment with some people we know. As they had been the first to mention their room size to the desk, I thought it only fair that they got the larger room in the apartment. We each had our own spacious bathrooms. Our room was actually smaller than the one we had come from, but did have a closet in the hallway where we could put our bags. I had a necklace stolen from my bag while we were out. Most people were complaining about the breakfast, but I was happy with my cereal and milk. I would never stay here again unless I was guaranteed a room we could open our suitcases in - The safe was stuck in the open position with the lock unable to be reprogrammed which made my hidden necklace free to the one who picked though my clothing to find it. In the many cities we stayed in throughout all of Italy, this was the saddest we were with ANY of our rooms/hotels.

Room Tip: Check with the desk before trying to unpack in a room you can't even turn around in.

Excellent bits: - Location. 5 minutes from bus and train station, 10 minute stroll into the centre of Sorrento (on the flat unless you want to go to the harbour). Hotel staff very friendly and helpful. Hotel very clean.

Not bad, but not brilliant: - If you like to complete your 3 course evening meal from sitting down to leaving to be around 30 to 40 minutes you will be fine. If you like a leisurely meal - no chance. We had to ask the staff to slow down between courses as we didn't have time to digest and appreciate, but that didn't help much.

In the same category we would advise that if the restaurant is busy at evening meal time (6.30 to 8.30) the one and only bar man is called in to help so you cannot get a drink or a table cleared until he gets back which can be in excess of an hour so if you like a drink before dinner get in early, if you like a drink after dinner you could be lucky or you may have to take a stroll out.

Would we visit again? Sorrento NO, its far to expensive for eating and drinking, but if prices fell to a reasonable level we would recommend Sorrento and would definitely stay at the Michelangelo (where surprisingly for a hotel prices aren't too bad).

Rooms not a bad size and have a TV (only a couple of English speaking channels). Many of the Americans did not think the shower cubicles were big enough. We British must have smaller bathrooms as we felt ours adequate. We had a large terrace backing onto the railway line which never bothered us one bit. The trains do not run particularly early or late and actually not that often so no problems.

Go get on a train to Pompeii its only 11 euros and a great day out. Sorrento is the last stop on the line so you cannot really get off in the wrong place. Pompeii well advertised as a stop so you are unlikely to miss the stop.

Go have a great time but take lots of spending money.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The location was great and the staff was very friendly. Our room was nice with a great balcony overlooking the pool. We enjoyed sipping Limoncello on the balcony as a nightcap. The breakfast buffet was great, but with so many great restaurants nearby we never even considered lunch or dinner at the hotel. Hope to return soon.

Very pretty hotel in a convenient location. Staff was not very friendly and the room was the smallest room I have every been in. Room #402 had the smallest shower. Food at the hotel was not very good. You are better to go out to dinner and breakfast. It was clean.

Room Tip: Do not take room #402. There are other room that are much better.

After reading some negative reviews on TripAdvisor, we were admittedly wary going to this hotel.
Imagine our delight in spending six most enjoyable nights at the Michelangelo! From the front desk to the wait staff in the dining room and the cameriera for our room, we were treated most cordially and efficiently. Our room 601, was clean and roomy, the bath towels thick and fluffy with a balconywhich overlooked the patio and pool below. We found the meals flavorful and varied, with reasonable choices.The location was in the center of Sorrento and an easy walk to everything.
We enjoyed our stay and would not hesitate to recommend the Michelangelo.

Room Tip: Ask for room 601 as it has a lovely step- out balcony and overlooks the patio lounge and the pool be...

We stayed here mid-October for two nights while on a tour. What a lovely, clean hotel. Our room was on the 4th floor and overlooked the pool and had a nice balcony. The room was spacious and most of all clean and comfortable. I hate going to a room and feeling it is dirty and I can't touch anything without catching who knows what, but this hotel wasn't like that. It was clean and the bathroom was nice and spacious. The staff at the front desk was very nice and friendly. The only downside was there was no Internet access in the rooms, only in the lobby and that is inconvenient. Also the breakfast wasn't very good and not many good choices and the coffee wasn't very good but at least it wasn't from a machine. Overall this hotel was nice and clean and very centrally located to walk anywhere.

Room Tip: We were in 412 and it was lovely with a good view.

We chose this hotel because of its central location in Sorrento and it was only a short walk to the Piazza Tasso in the centre of the town where most of the bars and some of the restaurants are located. The hotel is modern and the staff were very pleasant and helpful. However, it was obvious that the hotel specialised in accommodating tour groups and everything gave the impression of being "down to a price rather than up to a standard". The restaurant was adequate for breakfast, but the dinners were very uninspiring. Our bedroom was clean, but rather small. The bathroom door needed some oil and the shower head needed to be descaled. The bedroom was just big enough for our stay of seven days, but we would have expected something a bit better from a four star hotel. Indeed we have stayed in better three star hotels in other towns and cities. While the hotel was conveniently located, it was on a main street and there was some traffic noise although that was not excessive. There was a nice swimming pool on the first floor and a sun terrace on the roof which was quite spacious. A better hotel would have been the Grand Europa Palace which is equidistant from Piazza Tasso, but is more spacious inside and overlooks the sea and the Bay of Naples. It is slightly more expensive, but looked as if it was well worth the very small additional cost. Members of our tour party who stayed there ranked it very highly.

Room Tip: Our room was near the front, but it looked as though the rooms at the back overlooking the swimming...
