John Marco, speaking wonderful English, helped me get my bearings In Sorrento. It's a great place to use as a 'home base.'
Daniel is the morning waiter, preparing great cappuccinos. Breakfast bar includes a bevy of pastries, cheese, cold cuts, fruit, toast but no eggs, bacon or pancakes. It's truly Italian.
Jet was also quite helpful w/info & breakfast.
No elevator but Mario schlepped my luggage up 2 flights . I awoke the 1st morning to a rooster crowing!? One maid, Moana, working diligently. Rooms are immaculate w white tile.
Then Campground across street has an hourly shuttle to town for $1€.
Location is above Sorrento & out of the way--& I wanted that. Limited Room to park. Restaurant across street Kalimeri's , has best seafood pasta in the world for 13€.
Secluded beach & Grotto (Lido's La Solar) is 15 min walk down & it is an oasis & not crowded. No access by car! Yep. Walk only!
Can eat & rent beach chairs @ Lido's.
A church across street has a small courtyard & benches to view sunset. A market, gas station & ATM handy.
Lobby has a 70's retro feel w/Marilyn Monroe's face painted above a mock grand piano. Multi colored couches in reds/blues & outside seating for coffee. Front staircase leads to the main road.
What I liked about it was it was safe, clean, & inexpensive. You get to chat w/locals. There was a bday party the other night & kids galore laughing.
It's genuinely a 'home away from home.' But, like MY home, NO ELEVATOR!
