Recently travelled to Sorrent and stayed in the La Pergola Hotel, in St. Agnello, which is about a 15-20 min walk from the square in Sorrento.
The quality of service and cleanliness was second to none. The room (we booked one with a very small balcony) was very clean I must say, beds were changed every day and the service was impeccable. I really have only two complaints, one would be be the noisiness of the area, right near a cut through and by a mini bus rental site, which seemed to be in operation from about 6.30 until 11.00! Also I think the hotel management need to rethink the location of the drinks area at breakfast, stuck in an alcove by the stairs it was very cramped to get coffee and juices in the morning when the hotel was busy. But other than that it was great. I would just like to thank the staff who were unfailingly helpful all week and especially Rafaella (the catering manager?) who despite being short staffed managed to keep cheerful and friendly. The food was good and reasonably varied, but I felt that the chef had been asked to make it a little bland for tourists palates.....Shame! A couple of tips, when walking outside the hotel you need eyes in the back of your head, the standard of driving there is appalling, and some of the pavements are very narrow.On another note if you do wish to go to Pompei, Herculaneum or Naples I would recommend the railways, very cheap, I think its was about 2 Euros each way or something and the station for Pompei is right outside, to see Pompei properly you need at least 6 hours, you may find the tour groups don't allow that much time. Herculaneum can be explored in about 3 hours or 2 if you hurry! Although i would recommend the maximum time at each site to soak up the atmosphere and antiquity. I gather there are other ancient sites in the area that may be worth a visit, although we didn't have time to see them. All I can sya about Sorrento is that is a tourist trap, but the narrow streets are charming, to get away from the worst of the cruise ship crowds try the Grand Harbour at the other end of town, there are some good restaurants there, I can recommend Delphino's, and I hear Emilio's is very good. So all in all the La Pergola Hotel and that part of the world are well worth a visit
but above all, allow yourself plenty of time to fully appreciate the 2000 year old once working city that was Pompei.
