Just back from a week at the Alpha Hotel.
We chose this hotel because of the attractive price and location. We didn't want central Sorrento, nor out in the hills - thsi was the perfect compromise.
Its very nice indeed, very welcoming, helpful and friendly service all round, well located for the train to Sorrento centre and further afield to Pompeii etc...about 5 mins walk to the station, we rarely used the bus.
You can walk into Sorrento_ i'd say its a good 25 mins - and don't go along the main road, its horrible! The hotel is located in a mainly residential area, there's quite a bit of traffic during the day, but it quietens down at night.
Rooms were clean, spacious and well presented.
Nice pool area, lovely garden setting and nice terrace bar, with sun or shade as you wanted.
Breakfast was the usual buffet style, service was very good, we weren't over- keen on the restaurant...no ambience - very much a dining room, food was ok but served luke warm on the only night we went. (see "Moonlight" restaurant review for where to go!). There was regular entertainment, though that's not what we go on holiday for. We caught some of the music -at least it wasn't too overpowering.
Minor gripes would be: how about a towel service at the pool; draught beer; ditch the over-elaborate shower, it didn't really work.
