Book this hotel for many reasons. The location in the centre of Sorrento is ideal for all the shops, bars and restaurants. The room we had was a 'comfort' room which had a small balcony with table and chairs, ideal for sitting out on in the evening. Although there is no sea view we did have the deep gorge to look at and views of the mountains around. The opening doors onto the balcony have excellent sound proofing which meant that virtually all traffic noise is eradicated. The electrically operated shutters on the windows completely block out the light so you get a good night's sleep. The room has air conditioning and was extremely clean.
The hotel is very well appointed and the staff are extremely helpful and courteous. Breakfast is served until 10.30 and includes everything you could possibly want. The pool area is within a lemon and orange grove and is extremely pretty. There is a bar here and you can order food at lunch time if you wish. Evening meals are not available at the hotel here but there is no shortage of restaurants in the town! The competent reception staff will happily arrange excursions, confirm museum opening times and travel arrangements. Bed sheets and towels are changed every day and your bed is 'turned down' in the evening! There is a laundry service, mini bar and room service if you require them. There are no tea/coffee making facilities in the rooms but this is normal for Italy and you can order them with room service anyway.
The hotel is also a few minutes walk from the train and bus station (they are one in the same really). Do catch the train to Pompeii and Ercolano (for Herculaneun). It is very efficient and only costs €4.40 return! The train stops directly outside Pompeii so what's not to love?
The hotel excursion to Capri was also very good with a taxi to the nearby marina and subsequent boat to the island of Capri. €45 each so again, very good value and you do get a tour of the entire island plus a few hours on the island itself.
All in all a very relaxing place to stay. We did a lot of sight seeing, trips and tours so this fantastic hotel was a very welcome retreat at the end of each day. I have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone. For reference we stayed in room 408 (16-23 June 2014).
