The hotel was clean, modern, staff was helpful and always there. The location of the hotel cannot be beat and having a balcony over the street was really nice. We only stayed 1 night but I would recommend it to anyone coming to visit.

Room Tip: Get a street view as it was nice to sit out there and we did not hear the noise once the door was sh...

I stayed for three nights during July 2013. I found the best part of the hotel being the location as it was walking distance to all day tour departures - that was arranged by the staff! The staff was very helpful even arranging for earlier breakfast due to a early tour departure. The room was clean and I also think that the hotel was value for money even at a shocking exchange rate.

The location, rates and value of this establishment is unsurpassed. I stayed here in May 2013 with my partner for 3 nights and will most definitely stay here again when next I visit Sorrento. Coveniently located just around the corner from the train station and right next to the supermarket and movie theatre, you couldn't find better located accommodation. Surrounded by restaurants, walking distance from the pier to Capri, Amalfi or Naples and hundreds of souvenir, leather shops and gelateria's, you really can't go wrong!!

My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights as part of our tour group and were very pleased with our stay. The hotel is in a great location in Sorrento and makes it an ideal spot for day trips to Capri / Amalfi, etc.

PROS:
- Location: The hotel is located on the 'main' street in Sorrento, making it very easy to walk to the train station, restaurants, shops and the marina.
- Staff: All of the staff were very hospitable, friendly and spoke English fluently.
- Free continental breakfast
- Free wi-fi

CONS:
- The only thing that prevents me from giving 5 stars is the paper thin walls at the hotel. We could hear every little noise from adjacent rooms/people walking on the stairs which made from some sleepless nights.

My 3 sisters & I spent 3 nights here. Had 2 double rooms and were very happy with the accommodations. The room and bathroom were typically small, but there was plenty of room to set out our suitcases and hang things up. The breakfast was very nice and the staff was very helpful, gracious and professional. The location was great, the rooms and common areas were clean, and the roof-top terrace was delightful . We had a wonderful time and would stay here again without hesitation.

The location is great, very central. The staff is nice and the breakfast is ample, though continental. Empty fridge in the room a nice touch.

Unfortunately, it was just too uncomfortable to sleep. The air-conditioning was super weak. The beds were rock hard and the pillows almost as hard. In the morning you could hear every little noise from the maid cleaning adjacent rooms. Also, an 11 am check-out is stingy, though because we had barely slept we were more than ready to leave.

Dear Sir, many thanks for your review ! I really feel obliged to give you a reply .....the hotel is very flexible for the check out policy, and in case of a specific needs we are able to manage a customer request to postpone the check out time....even if we have other customers waiting to occupy the room.
For all the other issue we are able to handle them on the request.
What gives me a deep comfort is that we never received similar complain in the past ! All our room equippements are our pride!
Best regards
Roberta

As a single person I found the rooms to be a great size. I faced the main road and found the view to be amazing. Very central to everything as it's right by the train station and just right of the main square. The room had a weak wifi signal though but are you really there for that??!!
