We have just returned from 4 days in the Beautiful town of Sorrento. After reading the trip advisor reviews on this hotel we decided to give it a go! Everything was going great, with the details on trip advisor telling us it is 0.3 miles away from town Centre, we decided after reaching Sorrento train station from Naples we would walk to Hotel Villa fiorita, as 0.3 miles is not very far...SO WE THOUGHT!!!!!! we walked and we carried on walking (approx 6-7miles) until a local lady stopped us! 12km from the city centre!!!! BEWARE!!!!!! Luckily enough the lady took us the rest of the way, otherwise we may never of got there! (This is how friendly helpful the local people are) we arrived to be told by reception it would be 7.20 euro each everyday for the bus in to town!!!!
The hotel itself was very basic, small rooms, clean. Ok for a base, but we have had better 3* hotels before, i would say this is the bottom end of a 3* hotel.
The staff were nice, breakfast was good. But not the best place to stay if you want to head into the centre, we paid for 3nights, we stayed for the one- As we wanted to be in centre and thought it was, according to this site! We payed to stay in the deluxe usylle hostel- which may i add is more towards 4* star hotel! Lovely! and right in the centre! The hostels in Italy are nothing in comparison to that in the UK, I cannot recommend this place enough!!!!
As for Villa fiorita BEWARE IT IS NOT IN THE CENTRE IT IS 12KM -IN THE MOUNTAINS!!!!!!!!

Thank you very much for your review, we want just to be clear about the bus ticket price, in Sorrento there is a ticket for 7,20 euro, but it is valid for 24 hours, so in for 24 hours you can take how many busses you want to go everywhere on Sorrento and Amalfi coast.

But to go just to the center the ticket cost 2,40 euro.
We are 6 km far from the center, and there is a footpath too, 3km long.
On tripadvisor everybody wrote we are up on the hill in a beautiful panoramic place.
