We stayed for a week in August and upon arrival the owner Veronica greeted us and was very nice and helpful and explained about the local area and that the grocery shops a few minutes walk away and the main area of all the shops, bars, restaurants are only about 10 mins walk away, which we had read from other reviews and is the reason we booked this self catering apartment for our holiday. We found the above to be true and enjoyed our week walking around everywhere and looking at all the pretty sights of Sorrento, the harbours and the sea, catching the boat over to Capri and the train, where the station is around a 10mins walk away, over to Pompeii.
Whilst the apartment is nice and spacious and has a little court yard area with seating, great air-con and in a good location, I just felt it could be better. ie the towels were very old and hard, the bedding was old and when the apartment was cleaned half way through the week and the bedding changed, when we got back to the apartment we had to contact the owner as it smelt of damp, which I have to say was promptly changed within 30 mins of making contact. Unfortunately there was no kettle so had to use a saucepan to boil water all week for our cups of tea, there was no tea towel, the shower leaked and hence the shower mat never dried out properly and there was an ant problem, which I reported twice to the owner who got the courtyard sprayed and left us a can of ant spray, which did the job.
All of the above did not really impact our holiday,we enjoyed it all the same but just felt it could have been even better.
Also, we have never visited Sorrento before and it is extremely busy with traffic and mopeds who do not slow down for anything or anyone ! and obviously no fault of Dreaming Sorrento Suite Astra, but it is by a very narrow lane, only 1.6m wide where you would think no traffic would fit through, when in fact it is extremely busy and noisy and along with barking dogs, Sorrento is not a quiet place, but to be honest, I think no matter where you choose to stay in Sorrento it will be noisy.
Amazing location, close to the beach, town and station yet it felt a million miles away once inside. The accomodation was clean, modern and well equipped. The apartment owners were friendly, kind, full of advice and easily contactable, allowing our stay to be a mix of sightseeing a gorgeous area and relaxing in the apartment or small garden. Would totally recommend, we will be back to visit again!
Location good! however apartment not clean ,eg dirty glasses and kitchen wear. No dish washer or washing machine,no iron allowed ! cobwebs in bathroom and outdoor area very badly kept. Hostess cold and unwelcoming despite living on premises! lack of usable coat hangers was a problem and having stayed in numerous other apartments in ITALY was surprised by lack of attention to detail! Hostess Veronica just seems to do nothing for her guests and has a cleaner to sort out all her needs. She is more interested in spending he r days at the beach or in the private pool on premises! as for no iron in property! What a joke!
Absolutely lovely hosts, friendly, happy, polite and approachable. The apartment was really clean and lovely and modern and excellent value for money and i would have no problem recommending the place to friends or even revisiting. The location was a 5 min walk away from the square which suited us perfectly as it was away from the constant hussle and bustle and having the courtyard to sit and eat breakfast every morning was lovely. The only down side that i found the bed sheets hard and uncomfortable so didnt sleep brilliantly - but i just had the blanket so felt snuggly enough
Perfect location, fantastic hosts, it is a wonderful place to stay in Sorrento. Just perfect thank you!!
