Perfect budget accommodation for a great sleep.
Posted Aug 22, 2016
Knowing it can't compete with the luxury hotels in Sorrento, Ulisse markets itself as a HOSTEL rather than a hotel. If all you are looking for is a comfortable bed, a good night's sleep, and food to sustain you in the morning, this is the place for you - as it does these things extremely well. As a hostel, all Ulisse really provides is bed and breakfast - and friendly, helpful service, with advice on visiting the local area. It has few facilities (except use of the similarly titled Ulisse Wellness Centre) - and the rooms have no views - but for those just using it as a base for exploring the area, this is not a problem.
On arrival - I was greeted by enthusiastic, helpful reception staff - but initially I felt disappointed, as I didn't feel that the place deserved its 'luxury' moniker, especially as I felt the breakfast was limited and basic. However, by the time my visit ended, I did feel that this hostel deserved an 'excellent' rating - and felt it was good value for money.
My room was large and comfortable (I assume it was standard double), with air conditioning that could stay on whilst I was out, and that I could turn off at night (it wasn't quiet) without the room heating up. The window had a shutter to block out the light - and the en suite bathroom had a shower and bath. Other than a hairdryer and a free safe, the room had no other facilities (tea, coffee for example) - but these were not needed.
Overall I was delighted with my experience at Ulisse.
