Recent guest reviews
Read other reviews and expected hotel to be in convenient location-not so! If you come into Sorrento by train, get off two stops before Sorrento at the Meta stop and walk downhill about 10 minutes to the hotel, which is on a main road, just above the beach. We took the train to Sorrento and caught the A-1 (?) bus to Meta, got off at the end of the route, which leaves you at a marina on the beach, with a 5 minute hike in the sand, dragging suitcases and a long stair climb to reach hotel, about 25 minutes out of Sorrento. To leave the hotel and go off sightseeing make sure that you have purchased a bus ticket from a Tabacca (sp?) shop. (the little Pizza restaurant on the beach also sells bus tickets).Bus drivers don't sell tickets. Tickets get activated only once on the bus, so you can buy multiples in advance. The bus stop is up the road from the hotel, past the tunnel and by the entrance to the marina. The small pizza restaurant on the beach serves great food, especially the ricotta cheesecake! A must have even if you hate cheesecake! Good breakfast at the hotel and free internet. Once you get used to the location, it is easy to get around. We used Sorrento as a home base to go to the Isle of Capri, Amalfi coast and Pompeii.
