stayed at the girasole in july when our son got married in sorrento. we booked through an agent on the internet but dealt directly with the hotel when we needed to downsize our room as our daughter had to cancel her trip.this was not a problem, they even gave us a choice of room. we opted for a garden room which we thought would be quieter as the hotel is on a busy main road.although i can,t say i found it particularly noisy at night.
the room was nice and clean, linen changed daily. excellent air conditioning and the window shutters keep the light out in the morning! although the brochures say there is a hairdryer in the room, ladies i would reccommend taking your own as the ones in the rooms are a bit like a hoover nozzle!! not very good for styling.
the pool was really nice and it didn,t seem to get too busy, considering the time of year. the snack bar was handy .
the hotel is about a 25 minute walk from the main piazza in sorrento. although we had our car with us, we found it easier to walk as the roads are on a one-way system and parking is a bit limited in the main areas. besides, it helps to burn up afew calories after all that fabulous pasta and pizza!!
all in all, the girasole is a great little family run hotel. the staff are really friendly and helpful. nothing seems to be too much trouble for them. they even provided a room at short notice for our son on the night before his wedding.
