Sorrento Flats B&B is wonderful!!! The rooms are immaculately clean and comfortable. The furnishings, linens, bedding, and tile work are tasteful and brand new. The owner, Luigi, is charming - he offered restaurant and beach suggestions and picked us up at the train station. He was extremely helpful and understanding- going the extra mile to make sure our stay was perfect. The only problem is that I wish we had stayed longer than we did - this would be a perfect home base for the Amalfi Coast, centrally located in the town of Sorrento - and close to the train and harbor for day trips to Capri, Positano, Pompei, etc. We loved it and hope to be back some day.

We stayed here for 3 nights. The place is fitting with its name: it’s a flat (apartment) in the middle of Sorrento. The location is very central – right in the middle of the old town, which is pedestrian traffic only. It was really nice to be able to walk out the door every morning into the pretty alleys and town squares and see people opening their shops. Likewise, it was nice to walk back every night, past the diners and folks hanging around the old town – it’s like you really live there. The place is about a 10 minute walk to Marina Piccola (where you get on boats to Capri, Positano etc) and about the same to the main train/bus station. If you chose to include breakfast with your room rate, you go to one of two restaurants nearby for Italian (crossant + coffee) or English breakfast. The young owner/manager (Luigi) was very helpful and a pretty cool guy (note to single girls:L you might find him pretty cute). The flat wasn’t big, but the size was ok. As it was a flat rental, I expected no service, but Luigi came through on a lot of fronts – he helped us make reservations for some restaurants, gave detailed suggestions and asked us everyday if we needed anything else. When we left, his father actually drove us to the dock! Overall, the size of the flat was as I expected, but the service and the location were certainly above expectations. PS: free wifi available - exellent!

Sorrento B&B flats was a perfect place to stay. The room was fully equipped with a simple kitchen so we could make our own meals. It was located right in the centre of the town so we could walk anywhere. The room was perfectly clean when we arrived and very comfortable. And Luigi (the owner) was unbelievably welcoming and provided us with some fantastic tips. Brekkie we had 2 options, which meant a break from the standard bread roll and jam breakfasts we were served in most other towns in Italy!!! Absolutely fantastic! We would definitely stay again, thanks Lui!!! Jon and Natalie, Australia

I do not generally write reviews when I have a good experience, but Sorrento Flats is that good. Sorrento Flats was absolutely everything you could ask for in a place to stay on the wonderful Amalfi Coast. It is comfortable, clean, and charming and the location is great. The beds are very nice; the flats have more than enough space (we got to stay in two); the furnishings are modern and more than adequate. Luigi went out of his way to ensure that we had a great time. He offered to meet us at the train station and take us the very short distance to the hotel. He made fantastic recommendations on where to eat in the area and go out as well as ensuring that we had plenty of knowledge of where to go for nightlife, whether it was giving us tickets to a classical music concert or letting us know where the local parties were happening. I definitely recommend Sorrento Flats for your trip to Sorrento.

Sorrento is very beautiful and centrally located for visitors to the Amalfi cooast. We were very happy with our choice of B&B. Location was great, centrally located in the middle of town with easy access to transportaion (trains,hydrofoil) and various restaurants. We stayed for 3 nights in the 2 bedroomsunit,the kitchenette was very useful and having acess to breakfast at 2 different restaurants is a great idea. Luigi S and his parents are very gracious hosts, we got to visit their Villa (suites are also available at that location) up on thehills, great view !!!!!. Luigi is a very conscientious,in spite of not being on site he is always checking that everything is OK. Grazie Mille Luigi and to your parents

Sorrento is a truly lovely, almost sub-tropical town, flush with olive, lemon, orange and palm trees, located seaside on the Bay of Naples, with direct access to the Amalfi Coast. Well worth a full three-day visit, or longer. Luigi, the apartment owner, is a young, enthusiastic entrepreneur learning the ropes of providing accommodations to Sorrento visitors. I stayed alone in his double bachelor suite on April 27 and 28, 2009. He has two independent apartments at this location, which is a residential apartment building, with a central court yard, on a quiet lane, in the centre of old Sorrento. The suite has a king bed with colourful, clean linens, two bedside tables and lamps, two wardrobes, a sofa, coffee table, kitchen table and chairs, small fridge, safe, Sat. TV, a kitchenette with cook top, and small bathroom with sink, small shower, toilet and bidet (which is the norm in Italy). No local telephone in the unit. So you absolutely need a working cell. phone in case of emergencies. When I booked the unit, I thought I would be staying in an Italian Bed & Breakfast home, with on-site hosts, so I was surprised to find it was an independent apartment with no on-site services. However, the location is excellent, the unit is sparkling clean and safe, and it has two lovely doors opening to small balconies overlooking the quiet lane. Here you are within walking distance of all the shops and restaurants in downtown Sorrento. I have written to Luigi to suggest the following for future guests: Have them check-in at a particular, agreed time, because when I arrived there at roughly 5:55 pm on a cold, wet, blustery night, there was no one there, and I had to ask a shop owner next door to call Luigi on his cell. to come and let me in. It took him about 35 to 40 minutes to get there, while I stood outside in the cold. For someone with arthritis, and carrying a heavy bag, you really need to be picked up at the train station or take a taxi. It is not an easy five minute walk. He needs to put different towels in the unit - right now he has square, tea towel-like towels - I've suggested he needs to buy big, fluffy, rectangular bath towels. There is a big set of keys for access to the apartment - one for the building front door, one for the access door to Luigi's 2 units, one for the individual apartment door, with a final one to turn on and off common area lights. There is a requirement to turn gas on and off in two separate places if you wish to use the stovetop. There is air conditioning and heat. Not being terribly technical, I was a little at a loss when it comes to all the in-unit controls, and requirement for a working cell. phone in Italy - I am just turning 60 and prefer more person-to-person contact. Generally though, if you love your independence, this is a terrific value and location in Sorrento.

Cheers.
