Excellent bits: - Location. 5 minutes from bus and train station, 10 minute stroll into the centre of Sorrento (on the flat unless you want to go to the harbour). Hotel staff very friendly and helpful. Hotel very clean.
Not bad, but not brilliant: - If you like to complete your 3 course evening meal from sitting down to leaving to be around 30 to 40 minutes you will be fine. If you like a leisurely meal - no chance. We had to ask the staff to slow down between courses as we didn't have time to digest and appreciate, but that didn't help much.
In the same category we would advise that if the restaurant is busy at evening meal time (6.30 to 8.30) the one and only bar man is called in to help so you cannot get a drink or a table cleared until he gets back which can be in excess of an hour so if you like a drink before dinner get in early, if you like a drink after dinner you could be lucky or you may have to take a stroll out.
Would we visit again? Sorrento NO, its far to expensive for eating and drinking, but if prices fell to a reasonable level we would recommend Sorrento and would definitely stay at the Michelangelo (where surprisingly for a hotel prices aren't too bad).
Rooms not a bad size and have a TV (only a couple of English speaking channels). Many of the Americans did not think the shower cubicles were big enough. We British must have smaller bathrooms as we felt ours adequate. We had a large terrace backing onto the railway line which never bothered us one bit. The trains do not run particularly early or late and actually not that often so no problems.
Go get on a train to Pompeii its only 11 euros and a great day out. Sorrento is the last stop on the line so you cannot really get off in the wrong place. Pompeii well advertised as a stop so you are unlikely to miss the stop.
Go have a great time but take lots of spending money.
