This B&B is quite nice, but doesn't hit the heights of some of the reviews on here. It is a decent, clean and very cheap (for Sorrento) B&B. Marco is friendly when you see him. Breakfast is an all you can eat buffet that is plentiful, though unexciting. The single room I had was spacious, though the double bed was actually two singles pushed together.
Negatives? The much praised owner, Marco, was hardly ever around when i stayed here. Maybe it was because it was the end of the season, I don't know. His No.2 is Russian and his English is not great, though he speaks competent Italian.
The attached restaurant was closed half the time too, though again this might be because of the time of year.
There is no way you can walk to and from after dark as the road is a death trap-you have to use the public buses (2 Euros each if you buy individual tickets-better to buy a travel pass or the Campania Artecard)
To reach the hotel from the Circumvesuviana station, take the blue Sita bus that is going to St Agata via Massa (Lubrense). The B&B is directly opposite a campsite called Saint Fortunata, for which there is a big yellow sign 150 metres beforehand. If you sit on the right hand side of the bus you will see the sign.
Overall I would recommend it as pretty good value for money-just don't expect to much.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Dating back to 1700 completely immersed in the nature, far from the city noises but at the same time only 1 km from the centre of Sorrento. Overlooking the lively Gulf of Naples, 1 km away from the ruins of the ancient Roman Villa Pollio and from well equipped beaches. Thanks to its favorable position it will be very easy to reach the most famous touristic places by hydrofoil (Capri, Naples, Ischia, Procida, Positano) or by train (Naples, Pompeii and Herculaneum). ... more less
