The staff in this hotel are brilliant - they can't do enough for you, really good old fashioned service. The hotel itself is well located in the heart of Sorrento but near to the beach area also and in a quiet cul-de-sac so no through traffic. We could sit on our balcony and watch the wedding parties coming down from the local church for photographs. The rooms are a reasonable size - no kettle but that is the case with most hotels in Italy and yes the hairdryer in the room is rubbish (I took my own but you are not meant to due to health and safety). The rooms are aire conditioned and spotless as is the rest of the hotel, there is some noise when people are arriving and departing and on one occassion I heard next doors alarm clock but it was not a problem. The breakfast is lovely, but I think it is the staff that make this hotel great as they really were very friendly and helpful. Didn't use the spa or gym so can't comment on that, there is a lift down to the beach area, 3 Euros if you want to sunbathe on the beach but free to walk round and you can walk to the harbour area, if you want to sunbathe also you have to get loungers etc which can all get a bit expensive, we did this once but then used the hotel pool (which is huge) the rest of the time, loads of loungers around the pool.
