We've stayed in 5 Comfort Hotels (part of the Choice Hotels Group) in Italy & The Comfort Hotel Gardenia in Sorrento was the best! We don't think you'll find a better value closer to town. This is a great hotel for exploring Sorrento & nearby attractions.
Leisurely 15 min walk to center of town, Piazza Tasso. Closer to Circumvesuviana train (to Pompeii), Piazza Lauro, Giardini di Cataldo & great food. Try Pizzeria di Franco, il Leone Rosso & David Gelateria. Bus stop(line A), 1 block away,(buy ticket across street from hotel) takes you to Punto Capo for an easy hike to the point with great views of Capri, Bay of Napoli, Vesuvius & Sorrento. Walk to Marina Piccolo to catch the ferry to Capri. Laundromat one block away if you are on extended holiday & packing light as we were.
Run by the Mauro family, we were pleasantly greeted at check in by daughter Maggali with all the information we needed to make our 11 night stay with friends a success. Beyond friendly, Mr. & Mrs. Mauro went out of their way to make our trip special, arranging transportation to Paestum, free shuttle to & from restaurant Z'intonio di Mare in Marina Grande and even invited us for dinner one night at the hotel when they were preparing a meal for a larger group. The meal was delicious & an excellent value.
Greeted every morning by waiters Michele and Lilio with a smile & good humor. Breakfast included hard boiled eggs & toast, cereal & milk, deli meat & cheese, fresh fruit & juice, huge assortment of delicious pastries & great coffee plus hot "English breakfast" for 2nd week of our stay in mid April.
Very clean, spacious rooms with updated bathroom, stall shower (lovely Arancia di Sorrento hair & body wash provided) large armoire or closet with plenty of hangers & built in drawers. French doors that open onto balconies most with some Bay/pool view & some have Vesuvius view too. Front rooms overlook busy main street, Corso Italia, if you like people watching. Pool was being prepped & filled during our stay in mid April. We weren’t expecting the pool to be open in April, but it looked like it was going to be a nice place to hangout in the warmer weather. We can't wait to return to Sorrento & will definitely be staying at Hotel Gardenia when we do.
