We enjoyed our stay very much. Everything went well - service was friendly and efficient; breakfast was super; rooms were spacious, very comfortable and had nice views of the main square; location in the middle of everything was excellent (short 5-10 minute walk to Circumvesuviana station).
Ariane, whose family owns the property, dealt with us most of the time (from booking to handling our requests when we stayed there), and was simply outstanding - friendly, helpful with advice and recommendations (tour guide (more on this below), restaurants, things to do), and very efficient (you could be sure that things you asked would get done).
Ariane's cousin (apologies but I've forgotten her name) prepares an excellent breakfast that is beautifully laid out - you can tell that she does it with great care and love for what she does. We had to leave early on check-out day before breakfast is normally served and she let us help ourselves to whatever was ready (and this was really early in the morning).
We had stayed in some other very nice (and much pricier!) hotels in Venice, Florence and Rome like the St Regis before staying here and although the other hotels had bigger breakfast spreads, we enjoyed our breakfasts at Palazzo Januzzi just as much because of the quality.
While we were there, we took a private tour of the Amalfi Coast with Lorenzo of Sorrento Transfers (recommended by Ariane) and he was excellent - knows the area well and very safe driver.
Others have mentioned the inconvenience of having to lug suitcases to the entrance which is a short distance up a slight slope from the road where you get dropped off. This is true but it is not a big issue in these days of bags with wheels. I'm sure that Ariane wouldbe able to arrange assistance for those who require it.
I will most definitely stay here again (and book Lorenzo also) and very highly recommend both to anyone visiting Sorrento.
