This is a very special place. A working convent on the edge of the main Sorrento strip, it is surrounded by gardens and has great architecture. The convent is fitted out simply, but with large rooms, grand staircases, and stunning views. Our room was large, with high ceilings and a spotlessly clean ensuite, and opened out onto the large terrace....

La Culla has a warm feeling about it and the lovely Sisters make me feel very welcome every time I stay there. The rooms are clean and spacious each with own bathroom. Enjoyed magnificent views from the large balcony. Continental breakfast to start the day (including freshly made marmalade made by the Sisters, yummo!) If I wanted to eat in...

The sorrento.cc website stated that the convent "is in a quiet place and far from the traffic". However, the windows from our room opened directly over a railway line, and parallel to that a very busy road. The trains thundered past until around 11.30pm, and traffic continued strongly throughout the night. Given the lack of air conditioning, the windows do...

I would certainly agree with the previous reviewers of La Culla. The only negative that I would have would be the breakfast...........so bring your own coffee made in your travel coffee maker and a wonderful fresh Italian pastry on the balcony, heavenly! The rooms are ordinary but very large. You come here for the view and the relaxing atmosphere of...

La Culla is good value budget accommodation - very spacious room if basic (5 beds for 2 people when we stayed!), large and spotless bathroom and decent, simple breakfast of bread/preserves, tea, coffee included. Views from roof terrace and balcony amazing. But - be prepared for 10-15 minute walk to Piazza Tasso and old town along a busy, noisy road....

We stayed at La Culla for a week. It was quiet, and we had a spacious room. The nuns didn't speak English and they had no tourist information. The Gardenia Hotel over the road was extremely helpful in this respect, booking tours and restaurants for us. The nearby shop made wonderful gourmet sandwiches for picnic lunches and in the evenings...

We have just spent a few days at La Culla, Sorrento which is within 10 minutes walking distance from the centre of Sorrento. The convent is a peaceful place to stay and you could spend a lot of time just relaxing on the terrace looking out at the fantastic view over the Bay of Naples. Good size bedrooms and makes...
