Like many others we had made our selection to stay here after reading the many reviews. Email communication with Ettore was very good (we now know he works in his office at the B&B from 5-9pm every day).

In a nutshell this is a small establishment (2 floors up) with 4 rooms right slap bang in the middle of one of the busiest streets in Sorrento.....however once you pass the imposing entrance doors you leave the hustle and bustle behind and to be honest we didn't hear a noise the whole time we were there!

We arrived from Naples via train - the walk from the station was c7 minutes and the B&B was really easy to find, just off Tasso Square.
We enjoyed a great welcome from Ettore - who advised us on how to get the best from our 8 day stay and provided a welcoming cold beer on arrival.

The room was a good size and had a fridge which proved to be very useful. The air conditioning was excellent and we controlled it! The bed was also very comfortable. We had a balcony which overlooked the rear of the building - not much to look at but again served its purpose!

The room was cleaned every day by a lovely friendly lady - towels changed daily and linen every 3 days. We felt very secure during our entire stay. The one or two things we asked for were provided within 24 hours.

Ettore was exceptional in the way he looked after us and showed a great interest in what we had planned, always willing to give us tips - we enjoyed our chat every evening when we were leaving for dinner!

The only thing I couldn't really grasp was the 'breakfast' thing! Breakfast is not provided, you have to go to a local café where Ettore has negotiated a discounted price of €2 for a coffee and croissant. Although I should point out that this was made very clear before we had booked.

All in all we would most definitely recommend this establishment and if we return to Sorrento we would most certainly stay again. The customer service provided by Ettore was exceptional and is what made the difference for us. There was something magical about coming down the stairs in the evening, opening the large front door and stepping out in to a different world!

Room Tip: 2 rooms overlook the busy street below with very small balconies. 2 rooms face the rear but have balconies where you can sit down (no view).

HI I spent ten days in Sorrento and stayed at the Dolcevita B&B, THe reason I picked the dolcevita was I read a lot of reviews about the place. I have to say I agree with all the peoples reviews as It was just right for me and my wife. It was at the center of everything. Ettore , who owns the place was one helpful person, the rooms were spotless thanks to Anna Marie who did a great job. THe rooms have double glazing so you can shut out the laughter and music that came up from the narrow street below, but I loved the sounds from the street. As we sat on our little balcony with our glass of wine, we would speak to the vendors below and joked with them. We made friends with quite a few of them. Where you have your breakfast is just at the corner and it really is only two euros for the tea or coffee and croissant, but there is lots more places you can go to all at reasonable prices should you choose to do so. This is my second article on Sorrento as I just enough of the place and the friendliness of the people. I would highly recommend the Dolcevita for it's atmosphere cleanliness and it's location , you could not find a better place .

The manager was extremely helpful and very friendly, offered lots of advice on excursions, where to eat, drink and shop and where to avoid getting ripped off on prices.

The B&B was always clean, rooms were comfortable with all the facilities you would need.

Great location, plenty of shops, bars and cafes on the doorstep. Only negative thing I'd say is that it could be quite loud in the morning when the market stalls were setting up. But that's hardly the fault of Dolce Vita!

We were in Sorrento last week for a wedding and stayed at B&B DolceVIta for seven nights. It was really easy to find, just off the main square. When we arrived we were made to feel right at home by the owner, Ettore. He gave us lots of great advice about what to do and where to eat in Sorrento. He was really keen for us to make the most of our stay, and gave us advice on how to make our money go a bit further (such as taking sandwiches from Sorrento to Pompeii and Capri). We shared all our advice with the rest of the wedding party as it was so useful.
We stayed in the superior room and it was a good size and very clean. We had a balcony which was big enough for a table and chairs so was lovely to sit out in the evenings. Although the B&B is right in the centre our room was very quiet. The balcony also faces the back of the building so you don't hear any noise from the main street.
We would definitely stay in B&B DolceVita again - thanks Ettore!

Room Tip: The superior room has a balcony which was lovely to sit out on.

We stayed 3 nights at DolceVita and we wouldn't change anything about it. Ettore was a great host as soon as we arrived! He really cared that we have a good time in Sorrento and surrounding areas. He gave us great tips (buy a sandwich in Sorrento before going to Capri or Pompeii - great lunch at a reasonable price!) and told us where to go for good dinners. The orange room and bathroom was spacious and face the busy street. We never had a problem sleeping as the windows are double glazed. The location was great as there were tons of cute stores to buy souvenirs and limoncello. The B&B is not too far from the bus stop and getting there was a breeze. I would highly recommend staying here while visiting Sorrento.
