Excellent Hotel in the middle of Sorrento Old Town
Posted Jun 13, 2016
Before our holiday we received emails from the hotel giving us excellent advice and information for getting to the hotel. Bus from right outside the airport is definitely the best way to get there and it takes you to the train station in Sorrento. It is a 10 minute walk to the hotel which is situated just off the main street. Arrived at the hotel and were greeted by the warmest, friendliest, cheerful and helpful staff I have ever encountered in a hotel. This carried on throughout the holiday, all the staff from those on reception to those serving the breakfast and cleaning the rooms - we could not have wished for a better service. Hotel was in an excellent location in the old town. It looked out over the busy main street but when the window was closed it was quiet in the room. The room was very clean and modern and the bed comfortable. Free use of safe. Breakfast was good with plenty of choice. At end of holiday we were able to leave our bags before setting off for airport later in the day. Sorrento is a good location to visit many other places. Would recommend Pompeii (beware when getting off train the touts direct you to and office to get tickets but it is their guided tours tickets not the official ticket office for Pompeii), Mount Vesuvius (train to Ercolano Scavi and then book a bus tour up to Vesuvius) and Herculaneum using the trains. Isle of Capri is a must and ferries run frequently. Plenty of restaurants to eat out in Sorrento in the evening.
