Hotel Minverva in Sorrento

Friends of mine will be staying at Hotel Minverva Aug 20-22. Is this hotel really walking distance to Sorrento? They are paying over $250/night for 2 people...is this worth the spend? Any details as to the best rooms they should request? All responses would be appreciated.

See post 's 13 July all very complimentry,

The minverva is not central but only a short walk a bit up hill from the town, hence the lovely views, I have stayed at the Bristol next door, all rooms there are sea view because the hotel is built on to the rocks, would think the Minverva is the same,

My daughters and I stayed there the second week of June. I believe that all rooms overlook the Bay of Naples. Ours had a balcony. The staff was very nice and the views were spectacular. The restaurant was good. From Piazza Tasso (center of town) to the hotel requires about a 15 minute walk. Taxis are overpriced (about 15 Euros for any trip), but a necessity when going to the marina or to the train station with your luggage.
