We have just returned from a trip to Italy with friends taking in Sorrento and staying in the Hotel Gardenia. It was perfectly situated and the parking area meant that we could just forget the car and walk or take public transport for the 4 days we stayed. In fact 4 days wasn't enough to sample all of the delights of the area so if we return we will definitely stay again. We were 3 couples so each had double rooms 2 of which had balconies, ours overlooked the pool in which we made a point of swimming each morning and evening, it was delightful. We enjoyed our pre-dinner aperitifs on the roof terrace watching the sunset over the bay of Naples with Vesuvius just across the bay.
The room was cleaned and made up beautifully and had a safe (the only one out of 3 hotels we used during the trip) and the bed was comfortable, again probably the best of the 3 we had. Breakfast was perfect with a great buffet selection from fruit and yoghurt to pastries and cakes with bacon, eggs sausages too, and the coffee is, of course, to die for!
The walk into the centre is on a busy road with narrow footpaths in places but its all level so it was no problem and we think it took about 10 minutes or so as far as the station, a little longer to the main square.
The only minus point was the pool didn't open until 9am and shuts again at 7pm but it's lovely and clean with an attendant for the period it is open. There's a large sundeck next to the pool and also a gym but we didn't get round to visiting it so can't comment.
