We stayed 1 week with two relatives in early September. Great location minutes from station for trips out and easy 5 minute walk to centre of Sorrento and a further steep walk to harbour. Hotel spotlessly clean with good bed linen and towels.
Booked double room with double bed got triple room with single beds. It was a good sized room traditionally furnished with excellent air con but a little dark. The 'balcony' was one person wide and overlooked an internal courtyard bounded on 3 sides by either other rooms, an apartment block or looking into the restaurant so nothing to see - could hear other people's conversations on the opposite side so not private or attractive. Bathroom had shower in bath which wasn't very powerful. Great hairdryer. Basic toiletries consisted of 5 tiny wrapped soaps and 4 shampoos. Glad we had the triple room as our relatives twin was very small and their 'balcony' overlooked the railway line where first train in the morning was 6 am. Our room was very quiet and we slept extremely well.
Staff were friendly but everything seemed rushed especially at dinner in the restaurant where we felt it was a case of feed them as quickly as possible and get them out.
Breakfast was continental with reasonable meats, cheese, boiled eggs, breads etc. The fruit salad was tinned and the 'fresh fruit' - usually apples and peaches was either under-ripe or bruised and inedible. Dinner was ok - lovely soups and salads but main courses boring and over-sauced; puddings terrible - all tasted the gooey same with not brilliant ice cream. We ate out on several nights to get some real Italian food. There's a dress code of no shorts in the evening but the men in a party of Americans wore shorts so its obviously not enforced.
Didn't use the pool or surround as mostly in shade but the roof terrace was great with lots of sunbeds, deck chairs and patio furniture and very clean. Great to relax there after sight-seeing.
All in all a great location, comfortable and extremely clean but don't bother to eat dinner there.
