... and is in the running for the 2019 European cultural town award (or something like that!) More and more people started to recognise the 'beauty' of the sassi. Not beautiful like Venice but the incredible design within the caves that has occurred over many centuries, and that it is likely the oldest town in Italy and certainly the longest lived in. Matera has gained more popularity recently after Mel Gibson filmed the passion of the Christ there - with many more tourists ...
We got on board the public bus from Sorrento bound for the Amalfi Coast. Unfortunately for us we had standing room only- but in the end it was pretty cool, holding on like crazy as the bus wound around the narrow road. Standing near the middle doors also meant we had a great view out as the bus meandered the coastline and struggled its way past other buses and vehicles - seriously within millimetres ...

The meal and service was amazing, we opted for a cold meat selection with tomato and mozzarella side dish, and when Donna and Helen had Spaghetti with tomato I opted for spaghetti with mussels.
Yum but surreal !!!

the Ferry back to Sorrento. That night we got the chance to go off in small
groups for dinner and see Sorrento at night. The group I was with consisted of
5 people (one being me), all of them my friends. We went out for pizza. After a

I had taken the warnings about bands of thieves on the Naples to Sorrento train line to heart and so opted for the mare method in spite of the 4x cost. Btw, googles walking and public transit instructions have been in perpetual beta condition for the last 10 years it seems. Often one day is a different set of instructions from the day before or after and many times things are way too convoluted when there is a more direct option not ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Comfort Hotel Gardenia Sorrento Coast
Este hotel esta en reparaciones. Mi familia y yo estuvimos desde el sabado 15 de abril hasta el miercoles 18 de abril. El ascensor no existia.Teniamos contratadas dos habitaciones dobles. Nos dieron habitaciones en el tercer piso. Las habitaciones no tienen aire acondicionado, nuestro baño, la ducha no tenia ni cortina ni mampara, y la heladera no existia, aunque tenia las conexiones. Cuando me fui a quejar por estas anormalidades, el dueño me dijo, molesto y a los gritos que nos cambiaramos de hotel si no nos gustaba.
Nothing too much trouble!
The Hotel Gardenia is an excellent choice if you want to keep away from the larger - and busier - hotels that dominate much of Sorrento. It is an easy walk from the hotel into the centre. The rooms are spotlessly clean, the double beds are ENORMOUS - and the new balconies and additional sound proofing should improve things even further. The hotel staff are charming and all ready to help and give advice to make sure your holiday is really special. Breakfast was excellent - a wide choice of cold meat, cheese, breads, pastries, cereals etc. The coffee was good - if you want something different just ask!
We have just returned to the UK from a wonderful week in the Hotel Gardenia, Sorrento. It is a friendly family run hotel just 600 metres from the centre of Sorrento. Although only a short walk from the station, we recommend that, if you have heavy suitcases, you take a taxi from the station as the pavement is often narrow and uneven.
Great hotel- Hotel Gardenia
The best hotel I have stayed in the Amalfi Coast. Breakfast is wonderful, the bedroom is very but very clean (not always in Italy). The air conditioning right, the personal is very kind, etc, etc. You will only have to walk ten blocks to arrive at the Tasso Square, but it is not important since the relation price quality is perfect. In other places of Italy, the Gardenia Hotel is a four star, not a three.
We stayed at the Gardenia for 3 days and found it lovely.
We arrived very late in the night and the staff waited up and even left a bottle of champagne in the room for us. The rooms are very clean - ask for a room at the back of the building with a balcony overlooking the pool as the street could be loud at the front. Breakfast was the best we had all trip.
Would highly reccommend - walk into Sorrento is only about 10 minutes.
Stayed here for a week November 2004. Very reasonably priced - got a low season deal for 85 euros/night including breakfast. The buffet breakfast was not as comprehensive as I'm sure it would be in summer, but still quite reasonable. Our double room was clean, reasonably sized and had a view of the pool, the bay and Mt Vesuvius beyond. Being at the rear, there was no street noise, but as other reviewers have noted, there was annoying plumbing noise from adjacent rooms. Location is OK - 15 min walk to Piazza Tasso. About 10 min walk to the train station if you want to go to Pompeii or Napoli. Friendly staff speak reasonably good English (and French and German as far as we could tell). Overall a very reasonably priced and featured 3 star hotel in Sorrento - perfect for Pompeii, Herculaneum, Capri and of course the Amalfi coast.
Stayed here for 12 days in August 2004. We found the Gardenia to be a wonderful hotel with friendly and helpful staff. It is on the main road between San'Agnello and Sorrento and is an easy 15 minute walk to Piazza Tasso. The buffet breakfast offers a great choice which includes a hot breakfast - a first for me in Italy and I have stayed in 3* hotels in Rome, Venice & Florence which did not offer this much choice. The room was large enough with lots of wardrobe space and always properly cleaned. The large pool with sun terrace is a definite plus. There is also a roof terrace which did not seem to be much used. The only problem was that there is not enough soundproofing between rooms. Interestingly, we were never disturbed by noise at night, only wakened a little early in the morning by the sound of other guests getting up and about. Overall, I can certainly recommend this hotel and will definitely stay there on my return to Sorrento.
