“Two bad nights”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2013

We stayed at the Johanna Park hotel as part if a Trafalgar tour where we traveled Italy for two weeks and stayed in 10 different hotels.
Johanna park was by far the least impressive hotel. It I situated too far from town at the top of a very steep road, we had no hot water for two days, my wife and I were out in a room with two single beds and the breakfast was average

Sadly this hotel was the lowlight of a phenomenal trip and sadly the low light of a spectacular town!!
Sorento is beautiful and has tons to do, you just need to be in the town to enjoy this
Sorry Johanna Park, but I am not impressed

Stayed December 2013

the location of this hotel was way up on top of a hill and nothing can be reached on foot. we were on a tour with Trafalgar so this wasn't a problem- the hotel could also arrange for shuttle to the city center anytime you wished.

what was truly memorable was the service provided by the restaurant staff. we didn't get his name but you can't miss the fine, elderly gentlemen who takes real pride in his work. the dinner was one of the most enjoyable and he attended to everyone the same way. he was also there at breakfast helping you with the coffee machines. we loved our stay but would have preferred it if the wifi was stronger (we were standing by our room door to access it) and the location better.

Just out of Sorrento, but hotel provided a shuttle service whenever needed. If you don't get a room with a view go up onto the roof and enjoy the beautiful view across to the Bay of Naples and Mt Vesuvius. Room good size also nice and clean. Staff very friendly and helpful.

We had a wonderful stay at this hotel. The rooms and bath were large and accommodating. The view from our window of the Bay of Naples and Mt. Vesuvius will never be forgotten. The rooms and facility were clean and welcoming. Johanna herself was concerned that we were happy everyday. The meals were wonderful and Guiseppe and Nello made dinner time a delight. The free shuttle to downtown Sorrento was convenient and available whenever we wanted to go. The hotel is located just far enough from the center of town to give you peace and a restful environment. Our stay was for 4 nights and we were very sorry to leave. We highly recommend this hotel and we hopefully will be able to return someday soon. Suzanne & John

Room Tip: If you could choose a room facing the bay the view is spectacular.

At first was disappointed with location as it was a bit out of town but turned out to be perfect- they provided shuttle service whenever we wanted into town. Hotel was quiet, had a great view from our room. The service was exceptional and they made us feel like family. I had a medical emergency while there and they were extremely helpful in getting me a specialist appointment.

We had a wonderful stay at the hotel. The staff were very friendly and obliging. We really felt at home and would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting sorrento.

Giuseppe made dinner time a pleasure and the other Giuseppe was always ready to give advise on busses and trains and to take us to and from town.

Cons: The hotel overall is on the tired side. There was a fish tank beside the computers that was completely filled will green algae, I felt sorry for the few fish still alive. It made me wonder what other parts of the hotel were filthy if this was left in plain view.
It is located out of town which was inconvenient and it showed a pool on the web site, but I never did find it.

Pros: The staff is fantastic. The food was the best we had of all of the included food on our trafalgar tour. Not a huge feat.
