Good Price, Good Service, Decent Location

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on April 25, 2006

After a long, confused walk in the wrong direction I made my way up the Cape to Hotel Desiree. Located in an older building hanging off the edge of the cliff, Hotel Desiree is a quiet, relaxing hotel not too far from the city center (two minutes by car, ten minutes by foot). Reception is on the top floor and the rooms are on the lower floors; there is no elevator. My room was clean and had a balcony with views of the cape and sea (but not the city). The hotel has a private beach at the foot of the cliff.

This hotel stands out due to the excellent service at the front desk. Employees are really eager to provide assistance, and can provide maps of Sorrento and Pompeii, transportation information and schedules, and suggestions regarding local attractions. The man working at the front desk went out of his way to contact the harbour authority (after tourist information didn't answer the phone) to find out whether seasonal boat service from Sorrento to Amalfi had begun yet.

I paid EUR 60 for a single room with breakfast in high season. Prices are very reasonable compared to other Sorrento hotels.

ARRIVAL INSTRUCTIONS (by foot)

Upon exiting the train station, walk down the little hill to Corso Italia. Turn left and keep walking (past the big piazza), and KEEP RIGHT along the water! The hotel is about a ten minute walk (with luggage) from the point where Corso Italia becomes Via del Capo. It's not hard to find but the streets are very poorly marked. Consider bringing a map printed from Via Michelin.
