Just returned from a great 10 day family break in Sorrento, staying at the Hotel Eden. Our room (63) was basic but cleaned daily. It was 2 bedroomed which we were not expecting. Furniture was a bit outdated but functional. The rooms in the older part of the hotel did not have a balcony.
The breakfast was adequate with quite a bit of choice, including cereal, scrambled egg, croissants and bread with ham and cheese. One slight drawback was that you cannot sit at the tables outside as they are not owned by the restaurant (some did choose to ignore this).
I would recommend getting to breakfast early if you intend to stay around the pool and want a sunbed as they are soon taken, but there are some comfy chairs available if the sunbeds have gone. As other comments indicate you cannot take your own food or drink around the pool but there are a couple of staff regularly taking orders. Drinks are a bit on the expensive side (4 euros for a small beer and 3 euros for a diet coke) and a large pizza was 8 euros and is ideal as a snack at lunchtime. A few people did make the mistake of asking for a large beer that was promptly delivered in a glass boot containing about 3 pints - this was 18 Euros!
The restaurant next to the hotel is very good and reasonably priced. The hotel did give us a voucher to get 10% off our first meal at this restaurant.
We found the staff to be very friendly and helpful.
There is easy access to the train station but if you arrive by train or on the shuttle from the airport make sure you turn left when you get to the main street (at Hotel Nice) and there is an entrance to the hotel next to the Swatch Shop (easy to miss the sign as the door was usually closed so you might have to use the intercom). We went the wrong way and it ended up taking us an hour rather than 5 minutes!!
Overall I think the 3 star rating is fair and I would certainly stay here again.
