Historical Traveler Reviews Michelangelo Hotel Sorrento
Jewel in the Crown
The Hotel Michelangelo is excellent, it is exceptionally well run, spotlessly clean and the location is superb. We booked bed, breakfast and evening meal, the food was very good, continental breakfast, evening meal was a choice of 3 starters, main course and cakes or ice cream for desert. The food tasted very good though the portions were not very big, however if you asked the waiters (who were excellent) to bring more they would without hesitation. There is a lovely roof terrace to sunbathe on and a pool, though this is shaded at certain parts of the day, but who would want to spend time at the hotel pool when there is so much to see and do in and around Sorrento. I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone, for me it was the 'jewel in the crown' in Sorrento.
Lovely hotel, great location
I stayed at the Michelangelo for a week and was very happy with this hotel. I am not sure why on a number of web sites the hotel gets 3 starts when in fact it is a 4 star hotel. The rooms are lovely and clean and the bathrooms are spacious and clean. I found the staff to be very friendly and helpful and any restaurant recommendations proved to be right on the mark. The location was great, about 1 or 2 blocks from the center of town, which allows you to enjoy an evening stroll in town but it's quite when you want to sleep. There is a roof garden which is a wonderful place to sit in the evening with a glass of prosecco. I did not spend much time at the pool but it seemed nice enough. The breakfast is plentiful & good but not outstanding. Make sure you got to the bar at least once and have Giuseppe make you one of his special drinks (Prosecco & Lemocello). He is a lot of fun. I am not sure where they get the rate of 120 euro unless that is way off season, I paid 200 euro. This is a wonderful choice for your stay in Sorrento
The Michaelangelo Hotel was absolutely fantastic. The room was very clean, food ecellent and the restaurant staff fantastic. Sorrento, Capri, and the Amalfi coast have stunning scenery and if you like walking, there are so many lovely places to explore. Well worth a visit.
El Hotel Michaelangelo era absolutamente fantástico. La habitación estaba muy limpia, la comida era excelente y el personal en el restaurante fantástico. Sorrento, Capri y la Costa Amalfitana tienen un paisaje espectacular y si te gusta caminar, hay muchos lugares que puedes explorar. Vale la pena visitarlo.
The Michelangelo is a lovely hotel. Conveniently situated near the center of town. The rooms were comfortable and the bathrooms newly renovated. The staff was extremely helpful. Guiseppe, the bartender, is a delightful and attentive member of the staff. I have stayed there a few times and have to say my experience has always been good. I would highly recommend this hotel.
Un hotel estupendo
El Michaelangelo es un hotel encantador. Convenientemente situado cerca del centro del pueblo. Las habitaciones eran cómodas y los cuartos de baño estaban recientemente renovados. El personal era extremadamente servicial. Giuseppe, el barman, es un miembro atento y encantador del personal. Me he alojado allí algunas veces y tengo que decir que mi experiencia siempre ha sido buena. Recomendaría sumamente este hotel.
This was our first visit to Italy so we decided to use Sorrento as a base.This was a good choice and so was the Michelangelo!
We went with Portland which was excellent value compared to other tour operators.
The Michelangelo was everything everyone said it was! The staff were absolutely lovely,the food was great, and as the hotel had recently been refurbished,everything was of a high standard and very tasteful.We could not fault it at all!
Sorrento proved to be a good base as we were able to cram a lot of trips into our 10 days:namely,Capri,Ischia (visit the Mortello Gardens),Ravello,Positano,Amalfi,Pompeii,Herculaneum...and so the list goes on!
The only down-side we could think of was, that to get down to the port to go to Capri etc.was a bit of a hike down hundreds of steps (and MUCH worse on the return journey back up!)There are little buses to get over this but we didn't bother as we decided the exercise would help us work off some of those extra calories from all that lovely pasta!
Go to the Michelangelo...you won't regret it (dont take kids though...they would be bored rigid!)
Stayed at the Michelangelo, the beginning of September 04 and throughly enjoyed the facilities at the hotel. The rooms are spacious and well decorated, the bathrooms are bigger than average with mosaic tiling and power showers. Ignore the pictures in the brochures which make the hotel look dated, this hotel has obviously been refurbished recently and to a high standard. The staff are very friendly, the food excellent and a good choice available and the location is very central. The pool however is small and often in the shade but there is so much to do here, who wants to spend time by the pool. If you do visit this hotel, and I would recommend it highly to everyone, then visit the small pizza shop/bakery next door as it makes the best pizzas I have ever tasted and is very reasonable.
Excellent- this is a 5 star in disguise
Just back from 2 weeks in lovely Sorrento- our second visit- This time because of my wife having mobility problems we did not want to stay in a hotel with lots of stairs or on a hill slope so after hunting around and with the very professional help of Thomas Cook we found the Michelangelo Hotel right in the heart of the town. It is rated as a 4 star but I sincerely believe that if this hotel had sea views it would be a 5 star. Beautifully decorated throughout and delightful staff ever eager to help. The rooms are well appointed and all are double glazed with air conditioning. In spite of a few rooms at the rear having the railway line nearby (double glazing helps with this) I find it very hard to fault this top notch hotel. If you are looking for a centrally located hotel, on the flat and easy walking distance to the central area of Sorrento then you should seriously consider this very excellent hotel.
A fantastic hotel situated right in the heart of Sorrento. The staff are extremely friendly, especially Guisseppe in the bar! We went for half-board which proved to be a good choice. The hotel serves typically Italian dishes and there is a good choice on the menu. The grand buffet served on a Sunday is fantastic and shouldn't be missed. The hotel is very comfortable although the decor is a bit retro in the lounge. Rooms are clean, air conditioned and comfortable. The only disappointment was the pool. It is situated on the first floor but for most of the day it is in the shade. There is a roof terrace with plenty of space for sunbathing and a shower provided to cool off. There is, however, so much to do and see in Sorrento that we didn't spend that much time sunbathing anyway.

... and standing, cats and dogs, and other buses, too. The driving can’t be easy; we were glad to leave it to a professional. Today’s buses were 24-passenger types. This is the low tourist season and the rainiest month of the year for the area. I can’t imagine what the traffic is like in the high season. Must be crazy.
In Positano, the driver let us off as far into town as he could, but still pretty high ...
Time to move on so we have a quick breakfast and once again we drive along The Amalfi Coast. It's a beautiful day today and it's absolutely stunning. There are very few places to pull in for photos but as we keep stopping for traffic I jump out when I can and take pics! We stop off at Ravello which is lovely and hosts many music events including lots of operas, they have a fantastic open air spot for these on the edge of a ...
... we covered by a cloud. You couldn't see very far in front of you and it was very wet. After our time up their we had a really bumpy ride down. We were in a mini bus and me and my dad were at the back. The driver was going really fast down and we were being throw around like popcorn. My dad's head hit the celling a bunch of times. When we got back we relaxed and had Kebabs for dinner.
... problem and get our assigned seats. It is weird after all the local trains we have taken to actually have seats assigned. We also have assigned seats on the fast train from Rome to Napoli. Everything goes pretty smoothly. In Naples, we have to take the local train line to Sorrento. There is a long line to buy tickets and we just miss the 1041 train. What can we do. Buy a couple of snacks for lunch. One is a slice of spinach and ricotta pie which is excellent and the other a fried ...
