Luigi and his mother Fernanda provided us with an excellent service including all communication before we stayed there, and we were even picked up from the railway station upon arriving from Rome/Naples by train. The location of the flat is excellent and right in the heart of the old town, convenient for all restaurants, shops and the railway station and harbour 10 minutes away. The actual flat and on suite bathroom (shower only), was clean, tidy and bright and provided cooking facilities, if required, fridge, sattelite tv and air conditioning which was a god send on some nights. There was not a huge amount of storage space for clothes (2 small wardrobes) if like us staying for longer than a week, but nevertheless this is only a minor detail and did not detract from the excellent facility. I would definately recommend this accommodation to all those people who enjoy staying at this type of accommodation versus the touristy hotels, which are usually out of town. We will definately return.

Luigi was very nice when we saw him. He met us in town and we followed him to a reserved parking area. He helped us tote our luggage to the flats and gave us detailed information about the local area including restaurants. My disappointment came when Luigi asked us on the first day what time in the morning we would most likely be out of the flat so his 'girl' could come in and clean. Well no one ever came and when I called Luigi and told him we needed towels, he came over and placed new towels and at the same time told us that his type of lodging did not provide any housekeeping and that clean towels would only be supplied upon request. This would have been fine if he had told us that in the beginning. He mentioned that he would be by to check on everything every morning and evening but only showed up once during our stay. The room was nice enough, although I agree with another reviewer that the bath towels were worthless, tea towels at best and very harsh on the body. My other complaint is that he required a cash payment for the room, which itself is no problem, but he didn't provide us a receipt for our payment as promised. He said he forgot his receipt book and would return with a receipt later on our last evening but never showed up. Even a hand written receipt would have sufficed but we received nothing. Luigi is young and very enthusiastic but needs to pay a bit more attention to detail to make me recommend his Flats.

Best place I ever stayed so far anywhere!

It is in the centre of Old Sorrento and only 10 minute walk to the train / bus station.

The unit is modern and has all the comforts (air conditioned, refrigerator, & nice bathroom) even internet.

Luigi could not have been more helpful, making sure we were met on arrival, calling in on several occasions to make sure all was OK.

As soon as we arrived we were met in town centre, even offered to pick us up at train station and take us back on our departure,

Provided us with lots of useful information and kept on helping us along all our stay. If we needed to know anything we only had to call !

Would I stay there again.... without doubt.. good location, great host and fabulous location.

The title of my review pretty much sums up our experience at Sorrento Flats. The flat was very spacious for being in the middle of the old town. Luigi was very helpful as soon as we checked in and was always available if we needed extra towels or anything else. All in all, I'd recommend this place for anyone visiting Sorrento!

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!
