Travel Blogs from Sorrento
So we checked out of our hotel in Roma and headed for the train station. We caught the 10:40 AM train to Naples and were transported to Sorrento. What a ride as our driver talked about the history of the area. Upon check in, we hit the swimming pool for a dip and relaxation. After a couple hours of enjoying the pool we headed out to the Main Street …
... The diets will have to wait until we return home, as the food here is just too good!
Having seen Amalfi town and Sorrento, we think we made the best choice to spend most of our
time on the Amalfi Coast here. The best times are early in the morning and early evening, when the throngs of day trippers have left and there are more locals around. It really is quite a charming place.
Ciao for now.
... and I went to the train station to make sure there wasn't going to be a strike on Saturday as our guide was saying they do that all the time... I know they do but it really was unwarranted it seems.. Anyway we were assured no strike on Saturday, which is good as that is the day we go to Naples then onto Rome.
There was some sort of flea market right outside the entry to my building so I went and browsed, one of the ...
... nice place. Apart from me mucking up the arrival date at the hotel and us missing the last train we loved Sorrento. To be honest looking back on it, me mucking up the hotel and us missing the train made Sorrento more memorable and enjoyable. Im very glad we came here. This was Niomi's idea, so she should take all the credit for making us go here.
The only thing I would change would be having more days in Sorrento to relax and enjoy the sun, ...
... and it was the best. I had a big chuck of tiramisu which was absolutely delicious. With my meal I also had a glass of the house wine which I didn't mind. Back home I only like sweet wine. Not sure if my taste buds are changing or if the wine in Europe is just better than ours. Will have to test that when I return home I think.
One dinner was finished we walked to the next block to a cocktail bar which had 5 euro cocktails. The number one ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Villa Maria Sorrento
This is a 3 star hotel so: our room did not have a great view but was clean and not a bad size; and the breakfast did not have much fresh fruit but again was not bad. However, where I would take issue, is an item of ours went missing from next to the pool, presumably stolen, and while I cannot blame the hotel for that - we did leave it momentarily unattended and the hotel cannot vet its guests - I do for the hotel staff's complete lack of concern or effort in dealing with the matter and their failure, despite our own suggestions, to warn other guests that there was a thief so BEWARE. Oh and also beware check out time here is stated to be 10am although in practice they were fairly relaxed about this and gave us to 11am!
Our room wasn't very clean either
I have to agree with the message regarding the cleanliness of the rooms. Our room was not only noisy but it also had black mildew in the bathroom.
If I go back to Sorrento I'll make it a point to find a cleaner hotel.
Nice rooms but noisy
Like others I was concerned about the review
regarding dirty rooms but ours were immaculate.
If you take a room at the end with a view you
also get the traffic noise from Corsa Italia
(Corsa Italia turns into Via Capo right about
where the hotel resides; useful info as some hotels
are tricky to find)
Nice lobby and breakfast; did not see any internet.
Helpful and friendly front desk.
Its walkable to/from the train and SITA bus stop;
We even walked to the dock with our luggage
but that is downhill; I would not recommend
doing it the other way.
Good value nice place
we moved from Settimo Cielo after one night there - and were glad we did. Not only is it 1/3rd less (120 vs 80), it's all around better. The staff was nice, the room very clean, there was no view (the older rooms up front had a view but we were not in the room much). The breakfast was well above average (scram eggs bacon etc...). One of the reviews said it was a long walk - they dont know what they speak of - most of the hotels are actually quite a bit further along the coast walk way. The location here is better than most. -- as are most of the things...
A little bit noisy
We stayed for two days last month in a room with very large terrace. The room was clean as typical 3 star so we didn't find any problem. The sea view from the terrace was good, though you hadveto look at the parking across the street at the same time and bear the noise from the busy traffic just underneath. Anyway, we could enjoy champagne overlooking beautiful Mediterranean sea with some noise.
Our favorite in the hotel was coffee (cafe au lait ) served for breakfast. We'd never had any better in the world. Don't miss it!
After the reading the less than favourable review below I was nervous to spend my honeymoon at the Villa Maria Hotel - I needn't have worried....
My wife and I were in Italy on our 20th year wedding anniversary. While we we there we visited a number of different cities including Positano. In Positano were were staying at the Posa Posa hotel who happens to also own the Villa Maria in Sorrento.
Great but a little walk
Great Hotel with sea and cliff view. Right near center of town but it's at the far end of Corso Italia, the main strip. So it's a walk, but not impossible. Flat most of the time on store lined street that you want to walk on anyway. The hotel is lively and noisey but fun. Seniors dancing,Young age school groups ect. Party time but not rowdy. In April it was cool, rainy and damp, no heat in room. No radiators. Hotel very modern though. Breakfast was great. Walk to train or take a bus. The buses are more or less shuttles. The main attraction area is small enough to navigate. A two minute taxi ride anywhere has the tourist price of 15-20 Euros.
The hotel is a 5 minute walk to the center of town. The staff was very, very friendly and helpful. The rooms were large (for italy) and clean.
We had a nice balcony with an ocean view which was beautiful except that it was partially obstructed by the air conditioners on the building in front of us. The breakfast was the best we had in italy with a variety of cakes, breads, scrambled eggs, cold cuts, cheeses.
Great hotel, i would stay here again.
