Lovely hotel and perfect location for exploring
Posted Apr 7, 2016
We found a very reasonable last minute deal through Expedia for this hotel so weren't sure what to expect but we were very impressed.
The location was perfect as a base to explore. The airport coach transfer from Naples drops you at the train and bus station which is a 2 minute walk from the hotel. From here you can get a frequent train service to Pompeii and Versuvius. You can also get the local bus service along the Amalfi coast. Both are very cheap methods of travelling - single tickets cost no more than 3 euros per person.
As well as a base to explore other towns, the hotel is also perfectly placed in the middle of Sorrento. You are a 2 minute walk to the main square and little lanes full of restaurants and shops. Marina Grande is also worth visiting and only a 10 minute walk away for a quiet little beach and popular fish restaurants. You watch the little fishing boats coming in and fishermen on the end of the pier catching fish that goes straight to the restaurants.
The hotel breakfast was brilliant, full section of continental cereals, cheeses, pastries etc as well as bacon, eggs and other hot food and was included in the room price.
The room was very spacious and clean and had been recently redecorated. The bathroom was clean too and the shower was very powerful.
We did have a little problem with ants on the last night (though this was our fault for leaving food out) but the hotel staff moved us immediately into the room next door and were very helpful.
