"Grand Hotel Royal Sorrento"
The location and setting for this hotel is perfect, just 5 minutes leisurely walk from the Tasso piazza and corso Italia and all its little alleyways with tourist shops, bars and restaurants. Also just across the road is the train and bus station, from where you can go anywhere in Italy (Naples, Rome, Amalfi etc). Better still is the setting, make sure you get a sea view room and you can see the bay of Naples, Mt Vesuvius and Capri, and overlook a tranquil pool/ garden area of the hotel. You can take a lift down to the hotels own"beach" and more gardens too. The hotel itself is a grand expanse of marble, very spacious and clean. Some of the decor is not quite 4 star, but its not tatty, or dated. The breakfast was excellent, lots of choice, fresh and tasty. We didn't eat dinner in the hotel, we preferred the informal trattorias etc nearby. Foolishly, we decided to drive from the airport to the hotel, with the idea of driving around to the sights. Don't do this, parking is €20 per day, and you wont want to drive, the roads are treacherous and very busy, and the public transport is close by, and very good value. In summary an excellent hotel with a great location.
