“Would not return”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Nice view, but facilities are not great. Breakfast is disappointing, with fresh fruit available around the corner, I expected that but got Del Monte fruit salad for breakfast and left over desserts from the day before. Given Sorrento is so hot, air conditioning also not the greatest. Beds are extremely hard, not comfortable to sleep in at all. The staff didn't know too much about the tours they offered, even though the tours and tour companies were excellent. Location also not the greatest if you are looking to be closer to Sorrento. Unfortunately, I would not return nor recommend staying here.

Stayed here for two nights. Was disappointed to find hotel located in an apartment building.

Staff quite unhelpful. Room very very small. Wifi didn't work. A/c didn't work.
Breakfast absolutely horrendous. Stale bread. Cold coffee. Not ham, cheese, fruit.

Only redeeming feature was the view in the breakfast room. However when I went to sit at a table by the window, I was told by the manager to move as it was a table for 4 people. The breakfast room was empty. But was still made to move to a table at the back of the room. No one came at sat at that 4 person table...

Would not go back. Not worth 3 stars or worth the money.

Just back after staying 5 nights at this hotel, the only thing that stands to the hotel it is clean

Staff okay, that's providing you do not complain, not very pleasant

This hotel is suppose to be a 3 star hotel, it is no way. We have travelled quite a bit and have stayed in quite a few 3 star hotels! But this one was a glorified youth hostel. On entering building you have 5 floors to get up to reception that's providing the lift works and it only can hold 2 people.
Rooms are very small you can just about move in them. This is the first time I have had to live out off my suitcase, no drawers for leaving your tops , oh sorry there is a wardrobe but no hangers.? To get in to centre of Sorrento you have a 45 min bus trip( 1.50) each way which leaves at 8.30/9.30am and returns at 6.30/7.30pm each night . Bus will pick you up hotel,check with reception , for one sister will tell you directly outside hotel. Actually bus picks you up on opposite side off hotel at the Kwein hotel.

Breakfast very poor, water not even warm for a nice cup of tea, rolls not fresh, nice view looking over bay of Naples

There was 2 groups off students staying at hotel,you could hear every word that they spoke on the corridor. Booking your tours at hotel okay but make sure that the tour company can collect you and leave you back at hotel. We could only find 1 good restaurant to eat,which was run by a family, it is just 5 minutes walk from hotel

This area is very remote,no transport, we could not even get a taxi, it is too far out off Sorrento

I recently stayed at the Hotel Cosmomare on a school trip with 21 students and 4 staff. I have to say it has been the nicest hotel I have stayed in on a school trip and I would have quite happily stayed there if I hadn't been on a school trip. The hotel itself is set away from the main part of Sorrento (although it looks easily accessible by train) and is located on floor 5 of an apartment block. There is a lift (which is a novelty in itself!) which the staff used, although we made the students walk up the stairs! Once up on the 5th floor you enter the hotel reception which is really nice and modern, where there is seating area and dining area (to eat breakfast). The views over The bay from here are stunning. The rooms were lovely, with a balony (risk assessed for kids) and a bathroom with a walk in shower. The rooms were cleaned and beds made every day. The breakfast was fine (no moans from the students) with croissants and bread rolls, some sort of Nutella cake, fruit juice and a hot drink. I did notice, however, that the 'real' guests received a real and fresh croissant whilst ours were of the prepacked variety but the students did not seem to notice.

Our evening meal was at a local restaraunt which was a couple of minutes walk away. The family who ran it were very sweet and we thought the food was nice. It was a pasta starter and then a main course and dessert. One night was a pizza night. The kids were largely fine with the food, with the occasional moan (expected on a school trip). We set a rule that all food had to be tried before saying they did not like it. Most found they actually liked it after trying it.

There is a supermarket (Dicos) just past the restaurant where students stocked up on supplies. There was also an ice cream shop about 5 minutes away which we took students to most evenings (€1.50).

The overall impression I got was if you school respected the hotel, rooms and residents (hotel and apartments) the staff would be really nice (as expected). They often provided tea and coffee to staff after long days out. The wifi was ok in places and for some people. The staff helped out when needed. I would definitely stay in this hotel again.

I came here on a school trip and it was quite a pleasant stay. The views were amazing from our bedroom window, I loved the balcony placements and how close they were to my friends rooms. The rooms were very nice for a 4 bedroom door, although the door panel was a bit dodgy. However when we attempted to use the phone, we were immediately called telling us to "not play with telephone" which was fairly strange. Breakfast was average, but overall a nice stay.

Apart from some minor inconvenience with the wi-fi not working in the room and some confusion with how to operate the A/C we had a very pleasant stay. The 3 sisters who run the hotel are great hosts and did everything they could to make our stay wonderful. We would have appreciated a little more variety at breakfast but we didn't care so much as we were admiring the view most mornings. The man who attended to the breakfast could have been less grumpy.

We considered the hotel elevator to be a novelty.

The hotel is a 10 minute walk to the train station and a 15 minute ride to Sorrento. Good location.
Do not rely on the bus as the motto is "If we are 10 minutes late, we are not likely going to show up at all".

Room Tip: The A/C is wired to stop functioning when a window is opened so be patient and lit it do its job. A...
