Historical Traveler Reviews Porto Salvo Sant'Agnello
I stayed for one week at the end of March, and apart from having terribly bad luck with the weather (which is definitely not the hotel's fault), I had a wonderful time.
The hotel is located in a pleasant, if slightly sleepy, town where you'll find a number of restaurants which on average seemed slightly better and cheaper than those in Sorrento. It is located almost on the shoreline (you'll have to peek between the two buildings in front of it to enjoy the seaview from your room), and it's just a 15 minute walk to Sorrento if you're looking for livelier surroundings. Everything of interest in the area can be reached very conveniently by train, so the location is near-perfect for a stay at Sorrento and for visiting Pompeii, Naples etc.
The rooms are basic, but clean and comfortable and more than adequate for the price. Breakfast is quite ok, too - the choice of fresh fruit and the quite tasty bread were especially good.
But the best thing about the hotel and the main reason I'd recommend it to everyone going to Sorrento is the price - with the inflated hotel prices in Sorrento, it seems a much better choice to stay at Sant'Agnello and do the short walk over to Sorrento (or the even shorter train ride). I think you'd be hard pressed to find a hotel of comparable quality for the same price anywhere around Sorrento, let alone in Sorrento itself.
I have just stayed this charming hotel and spent great holiday in Sorrento! Lovely spacius room with sea view, room are decorated lovely asian style. Stuff were very helpful, recomended us where to visit, what to do etc... Delicius breakfast in the morning. We will surely come back to stay with them!!!!!
Nice spacious room, very friendly staff and good breakfast. Room was quite noisy.
Clean and Quiet
My wife and I recently had a lovely one-week stay at the Domus Porto Salvo.
The hotel, located just outside of Sorrento proper, provided a welcome quiet respite from the bustling and crowded streets of Sorrento and it was an easy ten-minute walk to the Sant'Agnello train station with service up the coast to Pompeii, Herculaneum and Napoli. There are stops nearby for local buses which will take you into Sorrento but otherwise, it would take around 20 minutes to walk to Piazza Tasso.
We reserved a room with shared bath down the hall. We found the room very tidy and spartan but a bit small for two people and luggage. The room had two twin beds pushed together to make a double bed, a desk with television, a nightstand and wardrobe. It also had a small sink which we found useful since we were otherwise sharing the bathroom down the hall. Free parking was offered guests who brought cars.
Breakfast was included and very typical for Italian hotels - sliced meat, pastries, fruit, yogurt, cereal, juice, coffee and tea. Bottled water, soda, beer, ice cream were offered for sale through the front desk.
The staff was very friendly and helpful, spoke English and cheerfully put up with our sometimes clumsy attempts at Italian.
Overall Value -
Considering the clean and quiet accommodations, and helpful staff, we felt that this hotel was a good value.
Value for money
Overall this was a quite nice place to stay. The rooms were simple but spacious, quiet and clean. The breakfast was very good, actually better than in many hotels.
The only negative thing was that we got a shared bathroom for the part of our stay instead of booked private bathroom. So we had change room during our stay (we got only a very small money compensation because of that).
Clean, quiet and understated
We booked Porto Salvo as a sightseeing stop off on our way to a week on the nearby island of Ischia. This pretty former convent in Sant' Agnello provides a peaceful alternative to the packed tourist destination of nearby Sorrento. The rooms are clean, quiet and understated with a sea view if requested as the hotel is just one road away from the sea front. The staff are friendly and helpful, and mostly speak English (although we did our best to attempt some Italian!). There's free internet access and a great selection for breakfast from Italian-style pastries to bread and cheese or muesli and yoghurt.
Just two minutes walk away is a pretty terrace with a bar/ café and amazing views along the coastline towards Sorrento where the locals gather in the evening to drink coffee and eat icecream. The terrace overlooks Marinella 'beach' - a tiny strip of sand accessed via a steep path (there's a lift back to the top if you can't face the walk!), which, as with most Italian beaches, you have to pay several euros to use.
There's a good restaurant/ pizzeria just around the corner, or the centre of Sorrento is a 20 minute walk. It's ten minutes walk up a slight incline from the hotel back to the train station, which can be a bit of a chore in the summer heat.
We travelled from Naples airport to Sant' Agnello. Take the 'Alibus' from in front of the airport (3 euros, to be paid onboard) to the Naples central train station on Piazza Garibaldi. You can buy a ticket to Sant' Agnello from the newsagents near the main train platforms. Follow the signs downstairs for the 'Circumvesuviana' which is the train service that goes via Sant' Agnello. You want the Sorrento train as Sant' Agnello is the stop before. If you're sightseeing, both Pompei and Herculaneum ('Ercolano') are very easy to get to as they're on the Naples - Sorrento Circumvesuviana line.
This was a nice place to stay with clean spacious rooms and small but well equipped bathroom. We had a glimpse of the ocean from our room which is one building back from the shore front. The staff are very pleasant and the internet access free - always a bonus. The breakfast was also better than most offered in 3 star hotels. The location is very quiet but a fair distance from the heart of Sorrento and you need to bus it in. There are some nice cheap restaurants in the vicinity. Ver pleasant stay and great value for money.
Lovely. More then I expected.
My husband and I love Porto Salvo. We used it as a base to go to Pompei, Napoli, Capri and Positano. It's close to the train station ( about 10 minutes walk) where you can take the train to go to Pompei and Napoli. The SITA bus stop is right by the train station. It takes longer to walk to Sorrento downtown (about 20-30 minutes.) But there is a bus stop around the corner of the hotel takes you to the town if you don't feel like walking.
Our room is simple but lovely with a sea view. With the same price you can't get a sea view room in Sorrento. There is a tower warming rack in the bath room. Very handy for drying under garments.
The breakfast is fabulous! Great coffee, croissant, pastry, toast, ham, sausage, cheese, yogart, cereal, fruit, a bunch choices of jello and 2 kind of juice.
There are a lot of resturants neaby. The staffs are very nice and helpful.
Clean, vast, spacious and groovey
This place was deserted when we stayed! A bit like the hotel from the Shining! However, we still enjoyed it. It was very quiet and the weather was miserable (it was November). The room was lovely though, with funky decor and a great sea view.
In terms of location, St Agnello isn't the best place in the world and its a fair walk to Sorrento. Better to hire a care if you want to get about to bars, restaurants and shops etc.
Breakfast was pleasant with fresh pastries, coffee, ham and cheese etc. The normal continental affair.
If you want a budget room in a great environment with plenty of space then this is for you. I imagine in the summer the place is amazing! Ignore the b&b references this place is more like a mini hotel.
This was a great find for us. Very reasonalble price, great service, good location, fine breakfast, great views of Bay of Naples. Converted abbey - nicely appointed. Yes, stay here.

... pickled cucumber and home made bocconcini (the owner was a cheese maker). It was absolutely incredible. After that we were already feeling pretty full, but eager to try a dish before we left. He asked us what we wanted, we said "maybe a pasta" and he responded "I'll be back with your meal", simple as that. He came back with 2 bowls of gnocchi in a tomato sauce served with a generous helping of parmesan, which was delicious and fresh tasting. We were pretty full ...
... on when we first set out. We got about 5 metres out and realised how rough the water was and turned back to shore to dump his bag. We set out again, and about 20m out this time we managed to capsize and of course I screamed and I'm certain everyone on the beach would have seen us! We scrambled back onto the kayak, glad we'd left the bag on the beach this time and I lost my paddle so we had to paddle in circles to get it. We figured out that putting our legs out of ...
... to Capri for Thursday, did the obligatory visit to the market shop and headed back to the house. Forgot to say most off the shops are open until 9 or 10pm and with it not getting dark until well after 9pm, it feels like the day is finishing 3 or 4 hours later than what we are used to.
That's all for today.
... on restorations of the town so it will last for many generations to come. The plants within Pompeii were those that would have been seen 2,000 years previously if you were a citizen of town. My favorite part of the day was finding hidden gardens in courtyards within homes that held trees full of green leaves and pink flowers. It was absolutely beautiful!
It was interesting to see all the many shops and businesses that made up life in ...
... good and made the sight more than just looking at a series of ruins.
I was a little disappointed with the information I have received around the condition of Herculaneum and Pompeii. It was my understanding that Pompeii was just a series of ruins, however it is far from that, frescos still line the walls, pillars still stand and mosaics still ornate the floor of former upper class buildings.
The highlight of Pompeii was the brothel ...
