Lovely escape from the tourist chaos of Sorento!Posted Sep 14, 2015
Pros: Clean, Friendly staff, beautiful location.
The first time you drive up the road to this place - don't think you won't make it... you will... eventually! Its well worth the wheel spins and 3 point turns. The guy who runs the place can not be more helpful and although the hotel is way up on the hill you will be glad of this as its a peaceful, beautiful retreat from Sorento. Also there is a stunning restaurant called Donna Sofia just down the hill and the owner has a free text service. If you do not have a hire car the owner of the hotel runs a shuttle service though the day. I personally thought the drive up the hill was the most awesome bit - make sure you use google maps on your phone though!!! Also after the drive up, there is a fully stocked beer fridge with large beers at only 3 Euros :)

Beautiful hotel in SorrentoPosted May 25, 2015
Pros: The staff were amazing and couldn't do enough for us, free wifi and prompt maid service. Fantastic views and very quiet.
Cons: Can't think of anything!
Location: Short but steep down hill walk to station so Pompeii in good reach. Lots of shopping and tours available to near by islands and up mount Vesuvius.
A short trip to attend a wedding. Remember to ring the hotel once in Sorrento station as they will pick you up in a car as its a long steep walk with suitcases! They also pick you up at night. Hotel was beautiful with fantastic views, room had a fridge and wardrobe and screens within the door so that you could leave the door open but still get air through. Lovely continental breakfast with a ping pong table and football for a bit of fun. Nice and quiet with lovely comfy beds. Staff were really attentive and couldn't be faulted.

Purgatory, not "Paradise"Posted Apr 8, 2015
Pros: The view
Cons: The management and the falsehoods about the B&B's amenities
Location: The location is very isolated. No restaurants, cafes, or markets are located nearby. The only thing to do: hike.
Casarufolo Paradise was anything but paradise. The list of amenities proved to be full of deceptions. Our room lacked "climate control," so we froze and failed to sleep the entire night. The flimsy mattresses (not the promised “queen”) and the cheap blankets added to our insomnia. We were forced to endure this misery because “management” vanished from 10 p.m. on. Not that it would have helped – the next morning, management claimed it was too expensive to heat our room. In other words, only they control the “climate control” – anticipate a big fight if you expect otherwise. (N.B., if you complain, expect the manager to kick you out and refuse to refund you for your remaining days.) Further deceptions: The promised tea maker and desk were missing. The balcony was too narrow to stand on. The “satellite TV” offered no channels in English. The toilet failed to flush. And no onsite restaurant was evident. Because this B&B is so remote, you’ll find yourself very isolated (and freezing) at night in a room that offers no place to read, write, or comfortably sit. And breakfast: although their brochure claims that “guests may sample traditional cakes...and freshly-squeezed juices,” you’ll discover none of these. Yes, by day, the view is panoramic (as are most views in this gorgeous region) – but, by night, the room (and the inhospitable management) is not worth it. To be fair, Casarufolo Paradise should be renamed after Dante's second book.

grazioso albergo in cimaPosted Oct 26, 2014
Posto gradevole e confortevole purtroppo andare e venire non è semplicissimo ... È l unica pecca di quel posto

Vista MaravilhosaPosted Oct 23, 2014 on Hotels
O proprietário Gian Luigi é uma pessoa maravilhosa, presta um atendimento aos hóspedes de maneira informal, como amigos.O único problema é o acesso ao hotel. O Gian Luigi teve que nos buscar com o seu carro na cidade, pois a estrada é estreita e muito sinuosa. Este problema é superado pelo atendimento do proprietário e pela bela vista que o hotel oferece.

Huikea näköala aamupalaterassiltaPosted Sep 23, 2014 on Hotels
Huone pettymys, kellarimainen ilman ikkunoita. Siisteys kuitenkin OK. Aamupala huono, sisälsi pelkästään makeita pakattuja elintarvikkeita. Sijainti erittäin kauniilla paikalla korkealla vuorenseinämällä kuitenkin vain kävelymatkan päässä Sorrenton keskustasta.

paradise is rightPosted Aug 16, 2014 on Hotels
This place was a welcome retreat from a fast paced italian vacation. Sorrento is packed with people in the summer and we could go to our room and never know about any of the action going on in town. I would go there again in a minute.

Fantastic views - lovely family fun hotelPosted Jun 15, 2014 on Hotels
Lovely family run hotel with fantastic views over Sorrento. OK it's a bit of a trek up a quite steep hill from the Town but the owner will pick you up from the station with your baggage and after a day out or an evening meal. The walk down is lovely - just look for the footpath rather than heading down the road all the way. The hotel has only a small number of rooms and the facilities are perfectly adequate if a little basic. Breakfast was fine if a little repetitive - with a little effort this could be a breakfast to remember as its served on a lovely terrace and you won't get the views at many hotel breakfasts.We did not hire any transport but other residents had cars and scooters - this is probably a good idea. Go with these limitations in mind and you'll have a lovely time.

Great location. Great hospitality.Posted Jun 3, 2014 on Hotels
Luigi, his family and his team were great. Great location. Great hospitality. Much beyond just great service. Very helpful (fed us with a Pizza pick up despite late arrival). Homely and professional. Highly recommend this 'paradise'. Thanks a lot Luigi.

top of the mountain. VERY narrow roadsPosted May 31, 2014 on Hotels
The views are excellent. Hotel, home is great. The drive up is on very narrow roads with hairpins that require a Y turn. Even with mirrors tucked in on my compact car I only had 2" of play on both sides with 10' walls. Still scraped my front bumper after no accidents for over 30 years. No food at night and I wasn't driving down until I had to. Gave me high stress for over half the day when I left.
