Gianluigi the Gentleman!Posted Mar 12, 2018
The experience started a little un-easy with a difficult approach to the hotel up a hillside. In the hire car I decided easier to turn around. If only I knew that the host Gianluigi would have been able to collect me from the bottom of the hill. He greeted us and was a superb host from start to finish. Welcomed us, explained the area, offered us drinks - everything we needed. The bedroom was large, clean, and had amazing views out over the town of Sorrento below. It was breathtaking and the photographs do not lie! Late at night we decided to remain in the hotel and asked for some beers, and were gifted a bottle of homemade wine which was delicious. In the morning we were greeted with breakfast being prepared, and an offer of a lift back down the 800m narrow hillside to our car - I gave Gianluigi a nice tip to thank for the hospitality and wine. A true gentleman.

Beautiful B&B perched in the mountain.Posted Sep 14, 2017
Gianluigi is a gem. Took us up and down to and from the Centro. He offers the service at night at 9, 10 and 11 so that you do not have to climb back in the dark. Nice breakfast outside under a rooftop with an EXQUISITE view! Our place was very spacious with a large kitchen/seating area and a separate bedroom + full bathroom. Would definitely go back.

Beautiful view - worth it for short stayPosted Aug 17, 2017
It is a beautiful view from up at the hotel and it feels far away from the touristy chaos of town centre. It is tough to get to, but there is a shuttle run 3 times an evening and, if requested and the owner is available, extra runs to and from town if desperate. This isn't guaranteed though and you need to be prepared to stay out ALL day until 9pm (time of the first shuttle). I don't think that's a problem if you're there for lots of exploring and don't mind getting sweaty. If you're someone that likes to go back and freshen up at the hotel before dinner, this perhaps isn't quite for you. Also, I highly recommend for short stays of about 4 or 5 nights. Not sustainable for a longer stay. The room with sea view is beautifully maintained and simple but clean. It gets stuffy in the summer with no air con. But the view...! Beautiful. Breakfast service is good and extremely tranquil! It lacks variation - mostly croissant and yoghurt every morning - although we were surprised with some homemade pomodoro one morning and also an omelette. Can't say enough about how helpful the owner Gianluigi is. He works very very hard to please his guests. We really enjoyed it stay here and would stay again perhaps for a short stop over of a night or two.

Excellent views and wonderful hostPosted Jul 22, 2017
Pros: Position, accommodation, breakfast and the service provided by Gianluigi
After the initial shock of the drive up the hill, you can not fault the hospitality or accommodation. Gianluigi is more than a host he makes you feel like a long lost friend. Nothing was too much trouble for him and we can fully recommend his hotel. The shuttle service is perfect and runs to the minute and is such a great experience.......

The bed & breakfast was vey nice. The breakfast was ok. There was no restaurant as stated in description. We had no way of notifying owner we were there, so had to walk all the way up the steep, long, windy road.

I read all the reviews before coming here and even thought I saw a few complaints, I decided to book this place. We stayed here for two nights as a couple, and it was great ! The owner is extremely helpful - helped us take the car up to the hotel and down to the city each time we needed it. We still went down once by walk and it was a nice one. One night, we decided to come back by walk even if the owner offers to pick us up around 10 pm to bring us back to the hotel. It was not easy but we had fun :). We had a complete breakfast on a beautiful terrace with AMAZING view !!! The room was a great size and clean with a big bathroom. The owner also recommended us some excurtions that we enjoyed :). I would recommend to people that would enjoy a quite place surrounded by nature, but close to the city center !

Good points; Big room, good double bed, good big and warm shower, fridge included in the room. Shuttle service at 9 & 10pm each evening by the owner. Decent breakfast but no other option that cornflakes, packaged italian toast, croissant & yoghurt. Bad points; We were not given a room with a balcony view as promised in the booking (this was the case for another couple there too). I forgot about this until after so didn't raise it or comment on the owner's action on this. The B&B is about another 500 meters up a ridiculously tight and steep road than what it shows on the map. Not suitable to drive up in anything bigger than a Fiat 500. This also makes the walk into town a minimum of 35 minutes, not 15 minutes as stated on the site. Walking back up is not for everyone, especially at night in the dark which is why it is good the shuttle service is there. Nice place in an extremely peaceful location but I wouldn't stay again.
