"What a view! What a location!"
חוות דעת אורח של Hotels.com מתאריך 10 יולי, 2010
The view from this hotel, whether you have a sea-view room or not, is one of several factors making this hotel a great value for a stay in the Sorrento area. The best views are from the large terrace sun-deck at the end of the 2nd floor hallway, so don’t bother to spend the extra money to upgrade to a sea-side room, if money is an object. The large sun-deck can serve as your balcony, and with a property this small, I doubt you’ll ever find it overrun by other guests. From there you have an incredible view of Sorrento’s bay, where you can watch cruise ships come and go, and even catch them literally sailing off into the sunset on the backside of the peninsula. The pool was really nice, clean, and ample deck space for lounging around.
Room size was small, especially the bathroom, but certainly adequate by European standards, clean, and definitely more than a good trade off for the location and views to make this a great value, at an already good price.
The family-run atmosphere and staff service was nice. And, they graciously offered free wifi internet access in the lobby as long as the front desk was working, which was usually until around midnight.
Location was a huge plus overall for us. We were far enough removed from Sorrento to enjoy the peace and tranquility of the setting above the bay, yet in 15-20 minutes (by car) we could be exploring the rich and romantic quaintness of Sorrento below, and enjoying a wide range of fare from the local eateries. We were also just an hour away from Pompeii, or other popular worthwhile sites in the Naples area.
If you’re driving by car to this area, beware. The narrow winding roads are breath-taking in two ways. One, the views are just incredible, but if you’re the driver, you have to leave those to your passengers to enjoy, since the close calls with cars, buses, and scooters will have you gasping enough. But, it’s definitely worth the relatively short drive to enjoy this part of Italy. Parking at the hotel can be challeng
