“five stars without the five star costs”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

HIGHLY RECOMMEND. FIVE STARS. mario is awesome. of hosts i've had, mario one of the kindest, flexible understanding (even when i missed the last SITA bus back from positano, got stuck there, and thus missed my supposed 8am checkout the next day). my time is sorrento was so terrific i kept wanting to extend my stay and mario kept saying "no problem". he brought up the most AMAZING breakfast selections every day. WAY better than any typical continental i have ever seen.

the home is mediterranean style, lovely and the rooms are situated above the house so you have MAJOR privacy--granted the next room over was vacant, but it was super quiet nonetheless. cathedral ceilings, lovely balconade windows with double shutters (for sleeping in if you like), sea view from right outside the room, beautiful tile floors and a super cute tile bathroom (only thing is if there were several people you might run out of hot water unless it was turned down for the winter). ample heating and ac in the room. overall very spacious and comfortable.

15 minute walk downhill grade (though mario graciously offered to retrieve me) (but remember you have to walk back up eventually) from the piano train station (circumvesuviana) and local (EAV) bus stops very near by. ONLY 5 MINUTE WALK to the seacliff. 2 towns over and 5 minute train ride from sorrento so you miss all the of the tourist trap congestion. SITA bus in centro to get to the amalfi coast and even solerno if you want to do the long tour versus the ferry or hydroboat.

THE PHOTOS ARE VERY REPRESENTATIVE, MARIO IS A GREAT GUY TOO!

i would totally stay here again, i recommend for you to book and enjoy...

Room Tip: 2 rooms to choose from 1 with 2 single beds, less view 1 with one double or queeen bed, more view...

Piano di Sorrento is a lovely little town. The B&B is in a VERY quiet part of town - make sure to ask/print a detailed map before you arrive otherwise you will have a bit of a hard time finding the place. If you want something more lively, this is not the place for you - I like quieter places, so it worked for me. About 15 - 20 minute walk to the train station and bit further for a bus. Sorrento 2 stops away on train.

Mario has two rooms available for guests, nice and big. Nice large shared bathroom. Each room has a bar fridge and aircon as well as fan. There is a kettle, but no coffee or tea.

There is a narrow street beneath the window, so no cars, but PLENTY of scooters. SO if you are a light sleeper, you wont be able to leave the windows open and will need earplugs as well.

Breakfast includes juice, cereal, fruit and some pastries, but no coffee.

Mario works, so is unavailable most of the time, but is happy for you to call him if you need assistance. Wi-fi signal was not super strong, but worked well on and off.

He has a lovely cat and small dog, but they are no bother and do not come into the rooms. Very friendly guy and he has some maps of the area for you.

A comment on Airbnb that I booked this through: The price of the room was very good, but after a 22 Euro booking fee, it pushed up the price with over 5 Euro per evening. I have found that many places on Airbnb are also listed under other websites and there are no additional fees. Airbnb's admin and communication is very good though.

Room Tip: I had the room with single beds, so no access to balcony ( or otherwise I just did not know how to g...

I found the stay very enjoyable. The rooms are nicely renovated, elegantly furnished and clean. The owners rents two guest rooms upstairs of his own home, a twin and a double. The two rooms share a bathroom, which is a also spotless and newly renovated & clean. Do note that there is no air condition. Anyhow the rooms didn't seem to get too hot and there was a big fan provided. The double we stayed in with my husband had a private balcony/terrace overlooking the village and even some sea view. In case you don't travel by car, be prepared to walk a bit to the Circumvesuviana train station or the bus stop to the center of the town of Piano. There are bus stops right nearby as well, but the service is not that frequent. This place was our peaceful home base for a week as we visited Sorrento, Naples, Pompeii, the Amalfi coast towns and Capri.

Room Tip: In case you like to have a balcony, ask for the double room.
