I stayed in Sorrento for three nights in September of 2012 and can't say enough good things about the hotel. Probably the most convenient location in the city to see the sites, 3 minute walk from the Circumvesuviana train stop, which is also the site where you pick-up the SITA bus to take a trip down the Amalfi coast. The hotel is located on Corso Italia, where all the great shops and restaurants are located. Piazza Tasso is at most, 150 yards away. There is a fantastic little take out eatery right next door if you need to pick up a late night snack or cup of coffee. The staff is top notch, and as you can tell by all the reviews, you couldn't have wished to have a better person to welcome you to their hotel than Theresa. She's the best! You will be awoken each morning by the smell of the pastries she bakes and it will put a smile on your face, leaving a long-lasting memory of your stay. They are that good! Along with the mouth-watering pastires, there are lots of fresh fruit, juices, coffee, cereal, yogurts and if I remember correctly, a selection of cheese and meat/cold cuts. For Americans, if you haven't traveled to Europe before, don't expect to find traditional breakfast items like pancakes, bacon and eggs, waffles, etc. Theresa and the rest of the staff (I believe it was Philomena and Mark?) are outstanding. Theresa lent me an umbrella to take a daytrip to Pompeii on a rainy day and they also helped me out to connect to wi-fi on my phone. All spoke great English so you won't have problems communicating if you don't speak Italian. I traveled solo on my two weeks in Italy so I wasn't that concerned about the size of the room. It was average size by European standards, smaller by American standards, but very clean, quiet and I had no problems with the confort of the beds. Walls are a little thin but it didn't adversely affect my sleep. Though I didn't have a room that faced the street, I found the area to be quiet at night despite being right on Corso Italia. Wasn't able to check out the top deck as it was a bit rainy for two nights and I was out on the town the third night. TV had four channels at most, with one English channel (I believe it was CNN-World) but why are you watching TV when you are in one of the most beautiful places in the world?! Anyway, I highly recommend this hotel. Will definitely book this hotel again when I come back to this wonderful country and city.
