Nice litttle bed and breakfast right in the center of Sorrento
We stayed 3 nights in this little gem right in the middle of Sorrento. Our room was on the 3rd floor and was extremely spacious. Rosie was waiting for us when we arrived and checked us into our room and showed us how everything worked. They do not have evening reception, but we never experienced any problems. The price for this accommodation was extremely reasonable compared to other hotels in Sorrento. And they have free e-mail in the breakfast room which is very convenient. There is also a self-service laundry across the street which was very handy. Yes, it would probably be nicer to have an ocean front room, but we decided to splurge on a driver to take us down the Amalfi Coast for the day instead (200 Euro). Good decision! Renato Cuomo is a wonderful driver and a fun person to have drive you and show you the Amalfi Coast. He knows all stories and details of the area and takes you to all of the best places so that you don't waste any time. We hired him to pick us up in Naples at the train station and take us to Pompeii, then on to our hotel as well.

A Cute B&B
A great location right on the main street. Charming furniture in the rooms and comfortable beds. Noise was not really an issue since we were up so early but do not stay here if you want to sleep in since there is constant noise from cars and scooters. Only real complaint was a mouldy showerhead that should have been replaced.
Loved the hotel, the staff was very nice. The location is perfect, right on the main drag. Our room had a little balcony which was very cool! Internet connection was wonderful. Breakfast was very good and it was fun to sit down with the other guests and discuss our days. There is a very handy book available with all the boat/train times available, which I used a lot. They even helped us find a legal parking place for the scooter we rented for 24 hrs. The room was large, beautiful and with a large shower! Air conditioning, yeah!
My only complaint was that since the entire place is covered with beautiful tile, it is very noisy. They have two sets of windows to block out the street noise, which is nice, but we were woken up about 7am each morning to the sounds of dishes being washed and breakfast being prepared which wasn't served until 8am. We had the room right outside the breakfast area which probably made the noise louder, but we spoke to another guest who was in the corner and she could also hear everything in the kitchen each morning.
We really loved this place and if you don't mind some early morning noise it's a wonderful place to stay.
Absolutely Perfect !!
The Casa Astarita in our opinion is the best accommodation in Sorrento. We couldn't have picked a better location !! Straight out of the door into the middle of town. The room was fantastic, clean and big with air con/digital tv/safe/internet point. You would never have guessed that you were in the middle of town as it was so quiet (our room was situated at the back). The breakfasts were excellent and you could help yourself to bottled water, cakes, fruit juice and biscuits any time of the day - this was a real bonus especially after a good night out !! We loved going 'home' every night because it was so nice and the decor was fantastic. We will definetly be returning to Sorrento and staying at the Astarita.
Very relaxing atmosphere
My husband and I stayed at Casa Astarita for 3 nights in May for part of our honeymoon. We took the night train from LaSpezia and were exhausted. Arriving at Casa Astarita was truly an oasis. The baked goods and unlimited beverages are very nice touches. Be prepared to speak some Italian or do your best with hand gestures. The bed and breakfast setting is condusive to meeting other travelers from many corners of the world. The location was handy...right in the middle of town, with a laundromat across the street.

Great place to stay
We recently stayed at Casa Astarita and found it very good. We had an Appartment - two bedrooms, two bathrooms and a lounge. The lady who owned the place was lovely and made delicious cakes and jam. Her mothers Limoncello was also very good. You could get water and juice at any time from the fridge and the brekfast was also very good. Location was excellent and we would definately stay here again.
Lost our reservation
I had reserved a room with Casa Astarita and then two days later they sent me an extremely brief email stating: "We are sorry but of an error we haven't an available room. we are very sorry"
This place only has 6 rooms! How difficult is that to manage? I would hesistate to book with this B&B. What if we had showed up and there was no room available?
This is a nicely situated, comfortable clean hotel. Good breakfast, nice bathroom, large room, and uniquely decorated. Not much English though.
Our stay was in mid November 2003. 75 euros per nite, including breakfast.
You will like this hotel.
Casa Astarita is lovely!
Casa Astarita is lovely. It is nicely decorated with touches that made me fell like home. The rooms are big, bright and very clean. The kitchen is open to the guests. You can get water and juices any time.
The owner is so nice she left us a cake at night. The staff is very helpfull. They have all the tourist information we need.
Very nice place to stay
We have stayed in Casa Astarita B&B for 3 nights in September 2003 and really loved the place. The room was nicely painted and looked pretty.
Everything was nice and clean. We didn't see much of the staff except for lady that came in the morning to prepare breakfast and to clean the rooms. The breakfast is tasty (there are homemade jams, for example) and there is enough food. The house is on the central street of Sorrento about half km from the railway station.

We're meeting the study abroad program this afternoon at the airport so we’re using the first part of the day to visit the Vatican Museum. The goal is to see the museum, the Sistine Chapel, the church and St. Peter’s Basilica. I’m not sure if we can get all that in before we have to make our way back to the hotel and then on to the airport.
We took the 9:30am hotel shuttle into town and got off at Piazza San Pietro ...
