... the window, etc, etc. Funnily enough we felt entirely safe with him. He was full of stories and opinions and was great company.
Alessandro deposited us in the very capable hands of Marcello, our guide, who showed us some of the highlights of Pompeii and blended them with stories of everyday life in Roman times - their system of water collection, road construction, markets, street eateries and of course, the Roman brothel! He was extremely ...
... B, which is located in a small historic laneway off Palazzo Tasso, the main square. After a little detective work, we found the doors tucked around the corner! Our room is up 3 flights of marble stairs (which we knew). Thankfully, there's a luggage lift for those heavy bags!
After settling in, we walked across the laneway to a place called Meating, because it smelled sensational. We made a great choice. Antonio the host welcomed us ...
... above into the "salty" dough put just a couple of whisked eggs over the top, just enough to hold it together, then flipped the dough over the edges to cover part of the top of it and baked it. Wow, the flavors were amazing, can't describe it.
The pasta "sauces" were the following, fresh tomatoes from the garden with olive oil that garlic still in their husks had been sauted in then taken out of the oil, sea salt, and sugar, maybe some basil? can't remember, very ...
... beautiful as is all the artwork. On our lunch stop there were a team of pick pockets that were working the crowd, Kathy was keeping a close watch on them while I took pictures. The cafe owner came out and told them to leave. The people watching here is great. Not many Americans so we stick out. Tomorrow we are going on an all day excursion with "Jack The Driver" to Mount Vesuvius and Pompeii. He is supposed to take us to some non tourist places also. Should be a great ...
... at a great hostel with really friendly and helpful staff in a quiet neighbourhood on the outskirts of town, but the train station, city centre and harbour are all within a twenty minute walk. From here we can tour the Amalfi Coast all the way to Salerno and easily access a couple of bucket list locations we are so excited to finally see in-person...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Metropole Sorrento
My husband and I have just returned from a great holiday in Sorrento. We had made a late booking and the Metropole was the only hotel available to us. However, we were more than pleased with the hotel, the staff and the food.
This hotel was a very good choice for a mother and older daughter to stay in. Most of the staff were pleasant without being over familiar. Acouple of them were rather abrupt in their manner however and seemed more concerned about the chef catering for guests even a minute after the standard lunchtime period closed. Meals were average though if the standard menu did not suit options were made flexible to suit.
My husband and I have been home now for nearly 3 months and we have totally fallen in love with Sorrento.
Just returned from 2 weeks at the Metropole, although overall the hotel was good, we did experience some problems.
Just got back today from a week at the metropole hotel and had a great weeks holiday !
My wife and I returned from a weeks holiday at the Metropole Sorrento at the end of October 2004.
We stayed here in October 2004. The holiday was with First Choice Holidays.
Returned from a beautiful holiday in Sorrento staying at the Hotel Metropole, was booked over the internet through Direct Holidays and didn't really have any info on the place beforehand.
Got back from the Metropole a couple of weeks ago from a great holiday in sorrento. Booked the hotel through a half board package and thought it was very good. The staff are friendly and speak very good English. The hotel was well kept and the rooms were cleaned every day. The hotel is on quite a busy junction, which you overlook if you have a sea view. It's a good spot to watch the Italian drivers risk life and limb!
What a Fantastic Place!
We have just returned from a 2 week trip to the Sorrentine Penninsula. Our stay was based at the Metropole Hotel on the out skirts of Sorrento. I cannot reccomend this family run hotel enough. The rooms were clean, with furniture in the Neopolatan style, and a balcony with a glorious view over the Bay of Naples to Mount Vesuvious and Naples itself. All staff were friendly and helpful and the food was lovely, small portions but by the time you have eaten your first course of pasta, the rest is more than sufficient! We will be returning to this hotel without a doubt and i wouldnt hesistate to recommend it to anyone.
