The apartment is located a relatively short distance from the train station, so it easy enough to get there if travelling by train (or bus). It is equipped well enough and had all we needed for our few day stay. The bed is big and comfortable. Laura's mother, Stefania, met us nearby to guide us in, and then provided us with advice about the apartment and also Sorrento.
It was easy to book this apartment, the owner responded to all of our emails right away. We were met near by as arranged. The apt was clean and well maintained. The bed was comfortable and there was plenty of hot water. It's near the train and bus station as well as grocery stores and old town.
The bathroom is small. There is a love seat across from a flat screen tv, basically in the kitchen. There is no light for reading while sitting there. The apt was kept very warm, but the windows and balcony doors open. The bed pillows were very, very firm. When entering the building, there is extremely strong chemical smell, probably from cleaning materials.
I contacted the owner of the property to request details of where to collect the key as my flight was arriving in Naples at 11pm. The owner was very unhelpful (rude at one point) and basically said that she was unwilling to accommodate me as I would not arrive at the premises until the early hours the following morning (approx 1am). I had to book a hotel in Naples for one night and subsequently she refunded me for one day (take note - anyone who has a late flight time arrival!!!). Due to unforeseen circumstances I was unable to travel and my husband spent ten days in the property himself. He found the place to be very clean and in a good location. I regret that I did not get to spend time in Sorrento but it had got off to a very bad start (before I even travelled) with the dispute over getting the key and the struggle to come to an arrangement. It left a really bad taste in my mouth.
Stefanie very helpful on arrival. Apartment clean and tidy.
Balcony and washing machine was a bonus.
Very good grocery across the road and café round the corner.
Easy access to central Sorrento and station.
On the first floor of a large block of flats, this is a comfortable apartment within easy walking distance (10 minutes) of the centre of Sorrento and also of the train station with trains to Naples, Pompeii and Herculaneum, not to mention buses to take you along the Amalfi Coast. Or walk to the harbour and take a boat to Capri.
The apartment is clean, roomy and well equipped, Stefania is friendly and helpful. Air conditioning and wifi worked well.

The apartment was perfect for our needs. The host was very helpful. We arrived earlier then expected. However, the host was very accommodating and met us early. The apartment was very clean.
Really perfect especially for price. Cools well, gourmet grocery and fish 1/2 block away. Cute coffee around the corner. Easy, quiet. Walk to train in 6 minutes, town square in 6 minutes. Beds are fine. Bathroom good, shower small as always. Host very responsive. So cheap! Noisy during day but who cares?
