Let me preface by saying that we have never written a bad review. This place, which had received good reviews, was a disappointment from the first. We arrived at Piano di Sorrento by train. Our hosts had promised us, via email, to pick us up at the station. However, the phone at the station was broken, and when we borrowed the cell phone of a friendly passerby to call, no one answered. We walked steeply uphill with our luggage until we reached a pastry shop. The husband and wife owners felt sorry for us, as we had a considerable climb remaining, and the husband took us the remaining way in his car. Only to find no one there. We were exhausted, having flown the "red eye," and had to wait quite a while for anyone to arrive, actually sitting on the driveway. When one of the owners finally arrived (the daughter), she seemed to think the whole thing was rather funny. The father, Michele, wasn't at all friendly and accommodating, as mentioned in other reviews; in fact, he was a little "reprimanding," telling us not to use the air conditioning and otherwise not really around. He did drive us to Sorrento proper the day we left, but that might have only been because of the transportation strike that was going on at that time.
Our room was clean, I must say, but it was very noisy (a lot of city traffic: ambulances, motor scooters beeping, dogs barking) besides some country noises as well (roosters at 4am). In additon, there was some kind of partition above the door from our room into the next which was unreachable, but had been left open. We could hear every sound from next door (coughing all night by neighbors). Sounded like they were in our room, it was so close.
We accidentally left some articles of clothing behind and specifically mentioned where they would be... but when we contacted the hosts, they insisted that they were not there.
Not a place we would visit again, or recommend.
Don't choose this place if you need a quiet spot to sleep
