The main advantage of this hotel is the location. It is located just a few steps from the train station in Sorrento. As a result, traveling to any place on the Amalfi coast is a breeze. The bus that goes along the coast also starts in front of the Circumvesuviana train station - and staying in this hotel helped us get to anywhere with no trouble. Also, Sorrento is a small town, and the market place and restaurants are all within walking distance from here.
The room was ok, and the window did not shut out the noise coming from the piazza below. This was a concern for us. The shower cubicle was too small, with no place to even turn around. No complaints on the beds. The room was clean, and there was a lift to go to the higher floors which helped as we had heavy luggage.
The breakfast was a huge disappointment. First because, the lady who keeps the breakfast hall was far from friendly. As most of the items were over, she showed no interest in replenishing those items. Instead, she let the guests finish whatever what left over in the breakfast buffet before filling up any dish, and that too reluctantly. This was definitely not professional. Also, she gave us some frozen donuts, which didn't taste fresh at all. My stomach was upset after the first day's breakfast, and after that I stuck to the cereals and coffee only. This experience let down my impression of the hotel by a large extent. Either the hotel has to improve its breakfast or stop it completely - this would at least not leave a bad taste in the guests
The rooftop of the hotel is a nice place to relax, and also gives a nice view of the piazza below. There is a good restaurant next to the hotel where we had most of our dinners, where the food and service both were quite good.
If you are visitng Sorrento on budget, this is a ok place to stay close to the train station - but skip the breakfast at the hotel.
