About the location

Went there because we had a wedding near the hotel. It was the worst experience. They have us antother room we booked, the room was horrible, dirty, and smelt. The director, Antonio, is someone really bad. He didn???t want to listen and only was thinking about his profit and he was talking really bad to the employee who were doing a really nice work. Went there once and never again.

We stayed at the start of October, what a great hotel this is, the staff are well trained and look after everyone so well, the food is very nice, and the room was super. We had a great balcony view and really enjoyed it here.
Nothing is too much trouble here - the staff really do make sure they are looking after you. We arrived after lunch our first day but the manager asked the kitchen to stay open a little longer and even offered some complimentary snacks - you just don???t get this level of service from most other hotels - excellent customer care.
The hotel is about a 5 min train ride from Sorrento centre or 45 mins into Naples. We stayed in one of more traditional rooms - a comfort room, these were very charming and exceptionally clean and well kept. The only comment i???d have is the bathrooms in these rooms may benefit from updating, the manager often chatted and mentioned there is work in the pipeline over winter so I don???t think it will be too long before they turn their attention to these.
