I travelled in many cities in Italy while THIS is by far the best experience!

I stayed in a private room for 1 week. The room is clean and tidy, you have all the necessary facilities in the room- AC, fridge, clean towels, shampoo etc.

Staff tried their best to ensure my stay is fantastic. Odilia is the best italian bella I have met, super friendly, helpful and fun :)

I joined the cooking classes there and they were unforgettable! Chef Biagio's big hands can made ANY foods you ordered! Can't believe I made fresh pasta and pizza in a real Italian kitchen and served to real customers!! Hurray!!

The breakfast is great with croissants, yogurt, ham, cheese, fruits, coffee - all made from scratch by the chefs there!

Location-wise, it is 5 mins walk from station Piano di Sorrento, they offered pick up service so I didn't bother much on that.

I would definitely recommend Soleluna to travelers in Sorrento.

One reminder - mosquitos in Italy are crazy, don't forget your mosquito spray.

In my search for an Italian Cooking School, I had the fortune to find Mama Camilla located in the Hotel Soleluna. The hotel was located in a local neighborhood and was less than 10 minutes from center of the city or train station and it was just around the corner from beach access. The hotel is located on the second floor of a small restaurant and cafe, both which were very busy due to the quality of the food and the friendliness of the staff. Upon our arrival we were met by Chef and his daughter who immediately welcomed us to our home for the next week. The entire staff at the hotel was welcoming and we were greeted by name through out our stay which made us feel more like we were staying with friends and not guest of a hotel. Our room was bright and large and we had a view of of the bay and Naples on a clear day, we could ask for nothing more. The breakfast choices were bountiful and offered a variety each morning, my favorites were the Caprese Salads and wonderful breads and pastries that were class projects from the cooking school students.

The cooking school was wonderful, we took the Camilla curriculum which consisted of 8 classes, 6 afternoon and 2 mid day classes. Each class consisted of preparing a four course meal under the artful direction of the Chef Longo and Chef Palmara. The school also has interns from various cooking schools around the world assisting in the preparation of the evening meal. Even if you do not have the opportunity to take a class, make sure you stop by for dinner; they offer outstanding food at a value price. I would highly recommend the Hotel Soleluna and look forward to hopefully returning one day, not only for the hotel but more cooking lessons.

The hospitality shown by all members of the staff made our stay enjoyable and created a lifetime of memories for my travel companions and myself.

Room Tip: Rooms in the front have high ceilings and a view to the bay.

Stayed here in August 2011. Great place! The room we had was spacious and the staff very helpful. Recommended us a great tour to Capri. The restaurant downstairs had amazing pizza, and it was fun to see lots of locals there, not getting much of a touristy vibe. We never took the bus to Sorrento, it was confusing on how to buy a ticket and they didn't come very frequently. But the train was super convenient, but was a bit of a walk with our luggage. The cost for our room was much more affordable than places in Sorrento. We liked it there so much we wanted to stay an extra day but unfortunately they had no availability but they put us up in one of their rentals, which we weren't too happy with (didn't seem very secure, mosquitos, and no fan!)

It's not like most hotels, It seems to be family run and slightly casual in greeting guests but open and friendly. The rooms were very pleasant as were the staff. They were very helpful in information and a guy that is around most days does trips that may be of interest. The location of the hotel is problematic. But there are beaches with recliners and sun-shades for hire. The sand is the dark volcanic variety. There is a little row of shops with a nice gelateria and up the road a villa worth a look. Some of the views are spectacular and the way people have built around the coast is staggering.

Though It is a fair drag to the station a character who sells the tickets is very helpful. We arrived from Naples on the circumvesuviana (a cheap way to travel) and used that railway to visit Sorrento, Pompeii, Vesuvius and took a bus from Sorrento to Amalfi, the cathedral and square is astonishing.

though the hotel seems isolated and in an inconvenient location it is actually easy to visit some not to be missed sights including an amazing lightening storm.

The food at the hotel was very good - made by the cookery school - about 18 euro per person the restaurant pizzeria next door was also very good with a delicious dry sparkling red wine for 5 euro a bottle, suits me.

We enjoyed our 5 day stay enormously and would recommend the hotel as a quiet off the beaten track kinda place.

Just be aware the location is not at first appearances very inviting but you can swim or lie in the sun for 6 euro a day at the camping ground opposite or go to the beach or visit historic Italy. Not bad all in all.

We stayed in a quad room with no complaints aside from no elevator. But not to worry got help getting the luggage up from staff.

The Breakfast was one of the best of our long europe vacation. Best ingredients used and you can taste the quality. Cappachino if you ask.

Next door was an amazing resturant with fantastic food. Very inexpensive and large portions. My personal favorite was the zuccini flower stuffed with cheese then dripped in batter and fried.

Also grocery store with affordable snacks/water/wine across street. But our favorite was the fruit market that sold homemade wine for about 2E in unmarked bottles. We would buy fruit, get cheese and have a snack at night with local wine.

You can walk to the beach, then for 1E each you can take the white van that will deliver you directly to the hotel. We also drove the almalfi coast as we had a car which was fun and exciting but parking is expensive. Only for the good brave drivers! At the hotel we paid 5E per day to park at the camping site across street in secure gate.

Room Tip: Best Beach is in Maiori right in town. Parking is 3E hour Almafi beach is not as nice and Parking is 5E per hour For 3E you can take boat to/from Amalfi or Minori or Maiori We also rented a paddle boat with slide for 10E per hour, and did our own little sightseeing of the clifts and cool homes built into the rock.
