“A great place to base your regional vacation”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2014

Centrally located and much of the city is accessible from this well-appointed hotel. It has everything from a bar (that management is moving to a larger space) manned by a very personable young tender, to an outdoor pool deck perfect for after dinner drinks in privacy. (at least in April) Serves mostly American tour groups, which is both good and bad. We ran into a few, picky "ugly Americans" with whom I was kind of embarrassed to be associated. Like other places in Europe, beds were hard, which I like, but others may not. Pillows were thin too; but so were those in France. I was on a tour, and the food was what you would expect: not bad, lots of pasta but not inspired. If you want a more authentic Italian experience I would not choose this hotel. But overall, I would stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask to be located away from the railway.

This hotel serves the purpose... Clean with good cleaning service and central location and easy on the wallet... The breakfast was bad, service in the breakfast was poor.

The pizza place next door is amazing... Lemon orchard across is good... Easy walk to the port and the center.

We recently spent 4 nights at the Michelangelo Hotel in Sorrento, Italy. As some of the previous reviews stated, it has some drawbacks.
The bad, If you feel you must go to this Hotel, please look at the room they assign you first. As stated, some of the bathroom showers look like they come from a hobbits house, meaning they measure about 2 by 2 feet square, without exaggeration. You virtually cannot move without fear of breaking the glass walls as you hit them with every movement. The bathroom itself was large enough to make these showers larger not sure why they feel people can use these tiny spaces. If you should drop the soap you actually have to get out of the shower to pick it up. We did go with a tour and I heard the same complaints from many people. Many rooms overlook a railroad and a street, not terribly attractive. maybe Americans are used to larger bath spaces than Europeans, but really this was almost laughable as an excuse for a shower. Their are already pictures online, they are correct. One picture also attached. Air conditioning is apparently something Italians don't really like, so therefore no one else should either as there is none that is turned on. The week we stayed, April, it was constantly 70-80 degrees in the daytime and the room was a sauna upon our return, we had to sleep with the window open and use earplugs to sleep. Not a relaxing experience. The room has a safe which the Hotel gladly charges you 10.00 euros to use, seriously, I have complained before about outrageous charges for Wi-Fi at Hotels, but have never encountered a fee to use the room safe, which of course no one mentioned until checkout. Italy now charges another hidden fee upon checkout ranging from 1.50 euros in Sorrento to 3 euros in Rome as a sort of extra Tax per person per night, and must be paid in cash, I guess the government plans on balancing it's budget from tourist .Free Wi-Fi is available in the Lobby not your room.

The average- breakfast has been complained about before here but we did find it to be decent. A good spread of meats and cheeses along with many breads and yogurt, fruit, several cereals, good coffee and several juices were more than adequate for breakfast. Dinners were decent but by no means excellent, we went out several times to area eateries for a good sampling of Italian food, it's bearable but bland and small portions. the front desk staff are rather stiff if not down right uncourteous. The waiters were so so and finally managed to smile once in a while the 3rd or 4th day. All in all the dining experience was rather underwhelming.

The good- the entire Hotel was very clean and maid service was very good, the rooms were spotless. The location is excellent, a 5 minute walk down the main street to the local square and many shopping places and not much further to the waterfront, so the location is very nice to visit Sorrento, which we found to be a lovely city, which I am sure you will enjoy discovering. If you are lucky enough to get a tour guide named Celestina, you will find the experience even more enjoyable, as she was just fantastic, with a personality which will make you fall in love with the city before she even begins the tour.
All in all a bearable place but I feel you can do better if you look around a bit more. I would not go here on my own again unless their was nothing else available in the area.

Room Tip: Look at the room before you accept it, especially the bathroom and see if the ac works in your room...

Spent recently 3 nights - nothing to complain, except that the view from balcony was to the railwaystation 5 minute walk from the hotel - luckily the trains stopped at the station for the night.
Very small swimming pool and no beach-resort, but I was not looking for that either. Very good location near to the main square and shops and bars. Lovely park across the street. I did expect something more from the breakfast and the dinner was not much of a gourmet, but ok. Waiters were very friendly.

I stayed two nights and could of stayed for much longer!! The Hotel was beautiful and very clean. I checked in via my tour guide Ornella from my trip to Pompei. All very smooth! My room also backed onto the train line but for me this was not a problem. As a single traveller I found the size of the room fantastic!!! The bathroom was amazingly huge which I love!!! Beds very comfortable and cosy!!! The staff were amazing at my dinner service!! Extra special attention as a solo traveller. Staff are vey accommodating and are more than happy to make your stay pleasant!! I am already planning my next stay there!!

We had a 2 night stay here and absolutely loved it. You are within walking distance to everything. The staff are lovely and very helpful. The breakfast was continental , there was plenty to choose from. We had dinner included in our package which was a set menu but again, the variety was good. Some people asked for other choices and that was no problem, the staff were very accommodating. The only criticism I have is the shower was very small. The rooms are small but certainly comfortable enough. There is free wifi in the foyer. We would love to stay here again if we returned to Sorrento.

We stayed here for four nights and found the hotel to be ideally placed with lovely spacious rooms, our room had a private terrace and our travelling companions had a balcony with a table etc. The rooms were clean and unlike other some other reviewers we found our bathroom to be roomy and clean. The food was fairly plain but tasty; breakfast continental and varied and the waiting staff polite and helpful. The hotel is well located near the Centre of Sorrento yet we experienced no noise from outside that disturbed sleep. We would recommend this as a pleasant place to stay.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a balcony
