... wanted to know what it was, so we told them that it was a brothel, with a bit of explanation... Karl wanted to know then what happened to all the babies.... It was a touch complicated but it was ok! And kind of funny. Anyway, we wrapped it up since the kids were hot and tired. Mark and I were super happy we went, since its something we both have always wanted to do. We walked back to the station, and stopped for slushies on the way. Kurt and karl got strawberry, and I got ...
... pocket for his phone. Then he felt in his other pocket; then another. By now he was really annoyed with himself that he had either left it at the Borgo (although he had all the cords so this didn't seem likely) or it had dropped out of his pocket in the car or as he got out to get petrol. He checked in the bag with the cords, but still no luck. I could tell he was worried about it for quite a long time.

... presidents house. The following day was intense. We did about 8 hours of walking and managed to see so much. We walked through the Jewish ghetto, went into the pantheon, got an ice cream for the best gelato place in Rome, walked through a few more plazas with amazing Roman architecture and then finally went to Vatican City. We got a tour through the city which was absolutely amazing, went into ...
... having a late lunch at around 3-4pm, kicking back for a rest somewhere for an hour or so, doing some more sightseeing and then having tea at around 10pm. No idea how I'm going to cope going back to the routine in Geelong - I might need a bed under my desk at work for the siesta sleep, George Kostanza-style! Saturday was our last full day in Sorrento and rather than rush around exploring the Amalfi Coast or heading out to Capri, we decided to do some more wandering ...
... knew how to drive a boat so he was our Captain. The boat didn't go that fast but once we set off in the open water it didn't take long for the water to come splashing up into the boat. I'd never been in a boat like this before, only the small ones in Malta and they were like row boats and only lasted maybe 15mins. This was a full on out in the water experience and I instantly loved it. It did take us a while to find a place to anchor and ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Club Sorrento Sant'Agnello
This was a very poor excuse for a three star hotel...very disappointing.
We arrived at the hotel fairly late on the Friday to find the welcome to the hotel rather on the cold side. Saturday morning was rather a swimming encounter in the room as the drainage in the shower did not take the water and promptly flooded the bedroom. Breakfast (all week was the same) - bread rolls, two sorts of jam, tasteless cornflakes and coffee that was mainly milk. We spoke to our Rep regarding the poor drainage, the lack of air con in the room which we were told was included when we booked, there was supposed to be a hairdryer so I didn't pack one - no hairdryer available in the room. We changed rooms on the Saturday after a sleepless night with "the bells" chiming every 15 minutes and trains running past till approx midnight, there was also the filtration system for the pool going during the night.
Where the heck do I start? Absolutely appauled by this accomodation. Have written to Thomson and Also ABTA to complain and request refund!
I was travelling with three other girls and we were staying in a quadruple room at this hotel. We stayed in Sorrento for 8 days of our holiday from the 25th July to the 2nd August 05. I would not recommend this hotel. When we arrived in our room the air conditioning was not on (there was a mini heat wave in italy), we had to request this to be turned on and when this was arrange it didn't work anyway. We had no TV which was listed on the rooms facilities. This was a three star hotel however our towels were not changed ever day, on occasion only a few would be changed and the cleanest would be left. We also had to be requested that this be arranged. Also the hotel claimed that the sheets would be changed every 3 days this also was not done. When we went to pay on the last day they would not accept our credit cards as they claimed that because it was chip and pin it would not work on their machine so we had to withdraw money from our credit cards and almost missed our train as a result.
Well - where do I start. Per Accommodation guide for this hotel the following applied & our experience is noted afterwards:
We loved friendly Hotel Club
My 12year old daughter and I spent our first single parent holiday at Hotel Club in St Agnello and felt so safe and at ease there. The family are extremely friendly and nothing is too much trouble. Breakfast was basic - we bought a box of rice krispies from the local supermarket but dinner was lovely. There are a number of cafes nearby for lunch and Sorrento is only a 10 minute walk away. This little family run hotel is ideal for visiting nearby attractions such as Vesuvius and Pompeii and the swimming pool is perfect for cooling off in when you return from your travels. We would definitely return.
My friend and I have just returned from a week at the Hotel Club and thought it was truly lovely.
I've just returned from a week in Sorrento, staying at Hotel Club. It was basic but friendly. the family were all very pleasent. The location was pretty good too, there being a lovely restaurant to the left if you walk for a few minutes.
Hotel Club felt like home
We have just returned from a week at the Hotel Club in Sorrento. It is a small, friendly hotel. The family who own and run it themselves are lovely people who do all they can to ensure you have an enjoyable holiday - we did. The food is great - just like Mama makes! The location is a little bit noisy but this did not stop us feeling as though we were returning 'home' at the end of each day. It is an ideal location for exploring the area - Pompeii, Vesuvius, Amalfi, Positano, Naples and even Rome is possible.
Small, Friendly Hotel
We stayed at the the Hotel Club in April 2004, the hotel itself is quite small but perfectly formed. The hotel is run by a lovely family who do all they can to make sure you have a fantastic hoiday. The food at the hotel is good authentic Italian and theres plenty of it!! The hotel is kept immaculately and housekeeping is done everyday. The only downside to some would be the location, theres a train track right behind the hotel, so if your a light sleeper it might not be for you! All in all we had a great time and would definately go back!!
