Its all about the views!
Posted Jun 20, 2016 on Hotels
My partner and I were very disappointed on arrival to find we had been given a room tucked away at the back of the hotel with a small balcony overlooking the bins and the neighbouring building. We immediately went down to reception and asked to be put in a better room. There was only one available room which required a substantial additional upgrade cost. However, we had not gone all the way to Sorrento to face a wall and feel claustrophobic and therefore we paid the upgrade costs. The room we were given had a fantastic view and that is simply what you pay for. Room: Two single beds pushed together an attached en suite bathroom with varying degrees of maintenance (first bathroom was very clean and tidy but due for updating, second bathroom looked like it had recently been updated). Mini toiletries, blankets and beach towels provided in the room. Small mini bar with chargeable items. No coffee or tea making facilities - if you are like me and need tea at 2.50euro at the bar it can quite quickly mount up! Service: Very polite staff and were very welcoming. Always very attentive to the Italian guests first but overall are very good! Food: Basic breakfast. Very well made and presented but very limited choice. e.g. cooked breakfast consists of scrambled eggs, tomatoes and sausage every day. Overall; stunning views, clean, tidy, close proximity to Sorrento and very walkable (note: the hotel is at the top of a very steep hill!).
