    The square serves as a good focal point to orient yourself when visiting the town - whether you wish to go further into the town or down to the port.  more »

  • Stayed one night @Exclusive suite. Location is great(just a few minutes walk from the train station). Love the view from our balcony. We had Breakfast in our room. The owner was very kind and helpful. Thank you:))
  • This was a super nice boutique hotel. It is an updated version of an old building with a great location. The staff, Valentina, Elena, and others were incredibly nice and extremely helpful. Great value, great location and great people.
  • Excellent location but no AC so rooms get hot, and can't enjoy views as have to keep the wooden doors to the windows closed (instead of curtains) to try and keep the sun out from heating the room up. Also had to keep them closed to get privacy as floor to ceiling windows. No breakfast included. Would have been nice if there was some coffee and Toiletries included too.
  • Our stay was excellent! The service was great! Very friendly and the location is awesome! We could see the main square from our room window and there happened to be a concert in the square our last night and we opened our window and watched it. (It was a magical experience) They bring breakfast in the morning which was great too. I would recommend anyone to stay here.
  • We went to Tasso on the recommendation of our driver to our hotel. It was absolutely amazing. We had salad, pizzas, fresh bread, cannoli, lemoncello, and a fabulous local orange flavored beer. We heard the couple next to us say that they were there for their 3rd dinner in seven days... Truly amazing food and service. Also quite affordable.

Where to stay in Sorrento

Sorrento's seaside hotels offer an ideal base for exploring the Amalfi Coast and the nearby archeological sites. Staying right on the water's edge also means being mere minute from the historical town center, popular beaches, and Sorrento's famous harbor. For a quieter experience just a little farther away from the sea, book your stay at a private hostel or B&B. Many family-run inns in the residential neighborhoods offer access to private swimming pools and manicured yards, with secure parking.
