Excellent location with a terrace that overlooks the bay and 5 minute walk from the railway station, (2 euro return to Sorrento), (1.40 euro single to Pompeii - entrance almost opposite). Trains every 15, 20, 30 minutes according to time of day. Try to avoid travelling on the train before 9.00am due to commuters and students packing the carriages - but otherwise comfortable). Vico Equense is a small town with all one needs for a base e.g. pharmacy opposite, bars in the square, mini supermarket. Hotel rooms all have safes and hair dryers. Hotel staff are unbelievably friendly and helpful. Unlimited free wifi available in the ground floor reception area with enough comfortable space to use it. Décor of the hotel is somewhat unique and dated but it works there. Breakfasts are good but the evening meals whilst adequate are pretty plain and basic except on the Friday night we were there, when there was a special Sorrento evening when the standard went up a couple of notches. We met quite a few tourists staying in Naples who were very uneasy about leaving their hotels because they felt threatened). Tip: the Campania artecard has various useful packages e.g. 34 euros to visit 5 chosen sites free and a discount of 50% on any others over a 7 day period. Although senior citizens are free subject to proof of age (passport). Overall because the many positives sufficiently outweigh the 'dining' we would certainly to stay again if we were looking for a comfortable and safe base.
