This place is an oasis in a busy little town. When you close the door on the secret garden you shut out the traffic and bustle and can enjoy special atmosphere of the old building. The room was very comfortable and the location very convenient for local restaurants and the Circumversuviana station. Recommended for independent travellers.

Was quite disappointed on our arrival. The room was outdated, the bed hard and uncomfortable and the o my light came from a skylight window. The bathroom had a massive step to get up into it right by the door and we kept hitting our head on the door frame because it was so close. The shower needs updating as... More

We stayed here as we couldn't really afford to stay in the hub of Sorrento but also wanted to have the flexibility to get to the Amalfi coast etc and this was perfect. Whilst initially hard to find the hotel really is in a secret garden and part of a small palace! It's family run and super friendly. We really... More

Breakfast was lovely, fresh pastries, and a lovely home made cake on our last day. Room was cosy and light, plenty of room for 3 of us, and along with the common areas decorated beautifully. Our host was smiley and friendly, very helpful with anything we needed. Highly recommended.

We recently stayed her for 3 nights and found it adequate. Being close to the train station was good. As mentioned in previous reviews the hotel is not the whole of the building, which is all run down and probably a little too rustic for my taste. Our room was clean and comfortable and the bathroom was well equipped. The... More
