Piano di Sorrento is a lovely little town. The B&B is in a VERY quiet part of town - make sure to ask/print a detailed map before you arrive otherwise you will have a bit of a hard time finding the place. If you want something more lively, this is not the place for you - I like quieter places, so it worked for me. About 15 - 20 minute walk to the train station and bit further for a bus. Sorrento 2 stops away on train.
Mario has two rooms available for guests, nice and big. Nice large shared bathroom. Each room has a bar fridge and aircon as well as fan. There is a kettle, but no coffee or tea.
There is a narrow street beneath the window, so no cars, but PLENTY of scooters. SO if you are a light sleeper, you wont be able to leave the windows open and will need earplugs as well.
Breakfast includes juice, cereal, fruit and some pastries, but no coffee.
Mario works, so is unavailable most of the time, but is happy for you to call him if you need assistance. Wi-fi signal was not super strong, but worked well on and off.
He has a lovely cat and small dog, but they are no bother and do not come into the rooms. Very friendly guy and he has some maps of the area for you.
A comment on Airbnb that I booked this through: The price of the room was very good, but after a 22 Euro booking fee, it pushed up the price with over 5 Euro per evening. I have found that many places on Airbnb are also listed under other websites and there are no additional fees. Airbnb's admin and communication is very good though.
