“Not quite what we expected - more of a pied-à-terre”
Reviewed April 25, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

person found this review helpful

This was the first time my wife and I had tried staying in a european city centre apartment -we had been used to staying in self catering cottages in the UK. So for us, we would describe this apartment to be more like a pied a terre in its size.That said, we could not fault the arrangements made by Stefania and Tonini to collect us from Naples airport (Mercedes taxi) and their greeting when we arrived in Sorrento. We wanted specifically to visit Sorrento,Capri,Pompeii, Herculaneum, Naples museum and "climb" Vesuvius - all of which we achieved (the weather was perfect, temperatures up to 26 degrees and blue skies throughout.)
The advice we received from Stefania was first class and undoubtedly saved us time and money.
The apartment was very central, being less than 10 minutes walk to the railway station (the trips on the train were very cheap, and an experience!!)Plenty of excellent restaurants and the Deco supermarket was only 5 minutes away.
However, there were a few negatives.There was no oven, (I guess because most visitors would always eat out), the coffee pot only made one espresso at a time -a two cup one, would have been more useful. There was refurbishment of other apartments going on all week, with some hammering starting at 7 in the morning , and still going on when we returned in the evening.
The air-condition unit, whilst effective, was a bit noisy and we were without water one morning without prior warning.
Overall, a successful week but not without some hitches.

Gerry,
Thanks for taking time to review my property.
Just to fix some point:
-the oven is in the kitchen cabinet
-the coffee pot can be used also on the ewer/thermos to prepare up to 4 coffe cups.
-the sudden water failure was due to a pipe break, attributable to the local water company
-the refurbishment upstairs, sorry it was not known in advance and it is not my fault, but to apologize you had saved money on the Capri ferry ticket's thanks to my husband help.

“So warm and welcoming”

After extensive research, my partner and I chose the Sorrento center suite for our 5-night stay. All aspects of this beautiful apartment exceeded our expectations. After two weeks of battling the intense heat in Italy, the very cool apartment was such a relief! The apartment was immaculate with all modern conveniences. We made use of the washer and hung our clothes outside--we felt like locals. The location simply can't be beat. We were in the very heart of this beautiful town. Everything we needed was literally just steps away. My partner and I agree that the best part of this stay was the hospitality of the owners. Before we arrived, Stefania suggested and arranged to have a driver pick us up at the train station in Naples rather than taking a regional train or bus. This proved to be the perfect way to travel. The air conditioned Mercedes and our amazing driver, David were well worth the extra. When we arrived, Stefania greeted us warmly and took the time to offer suggestions for restaurants and tours. We had planned to do a self-guided tour of Capri but took her recommendation about a boat tour. Stefania arranged it for us for the very next day and even paid the deposit. This tour was by far the best value of our entire trip and was certainly a highlight. Her dinner recommendations were perfect. We visited one of the restaurants-Da Gigino's 3 times! It was exactly 55 steps from the apartment. We would also highly recommend Soul & Fish Restaurant and Delfino's. Stefania and her husband Tonino genuinely care about their guests.

“The Heart of Sorrento”
Reviewed August 2, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

people found this review helpful

It's no surprise this apartment is getting such good reviews. Easy communication with the owner, pre-booking and upon arrival, with the warmest of welcomes.

This spotlessly clean, well equipped apartment is located right at the heart of Sorrento. Enjoy its quiet tranquility or throw open the french windows and allow in the wonderful atmosphere of the bustling street below.

We have spoken to so many people who say they are going to Sorrento when really they can be quite a distance away. This is the centre of where you want to be and should you want to venture further you'll be perfectly placed for buses, ferries and trains.

We have visited Sorrento many times and never tire of its charm.

Thank you Stefania and Antonino for the opportunity of staying at this ideal apartment.
Pat and Ian

My brother recently stayed here for his honeymoon. I contacted the owner to set up a surprise for the newlyweds upon their arrival, and she went out of her way to help me give them a wonderful gift. She purchased local fruit, meats, cheeses, a cake, lemon cello, and more for me and arranged them beautifully in the kitchen. Imagine the wonderful surprise my brother and sister in law saw when they walked in the door! She also arranged for private transport to/from the suite for my brother, making their travel much more relaxing. I can't thank the hosts enough for helping me give my brother a wonderful experience. I can't imagine getting better customer service anywhere.

“Excellent modern apartment in the middle of Sorrento”
Reviewed July 1, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Great experience for our first visit to Sorrento. The location is amazing... it literally overlooks the main market street, but you wouldn't know it when inside the apartment, which is very quiet despite the proximity to the busy part of town.

Stefania was extremely welcoming and helpful. She gave us some great dinner recommendations (and even made a reservation for us one night).

The apartment was very clean and modern (best shower, by far, from our two week trip to Italy).

Overall, this was a perfect place to stay in Sorrento. Great experience.

“Beautiful apartment with a beautiful host!”
Reviewed June 17, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We stayed in the Sorrento Center Suite in June and were extremely happy with our experience. Stefania was very responsive to our inquiries during planning and met us promptly on the day of our arrival to show us around the apartment. The apartment itself it beautiful - recently updated with all of the modern amenities you need including an excellent shower, kitchen and washing machine (very much appreciated by two people who are traveling extensively over the next few months). Aside from the apartment itself, the location is perfect. You can easily walk to a number of cafes, shops and excellent restaurants.

For us, what made this experience all the better, was the exceptional hospitality Stefania extended to us during our stay. She not only offered a number of recommendations for restaurants (all of which were phenomenal), she made herself available to us to help with tours, trip planning, etc. The trip she arranged for us to Capri was one of the highlights of our time in Italy.

I would highly recommend Stefania and her beautiful apartment to anyone planning a visit to Sorrento.

“Warmest of welcomes to Sorrento!”
Reviewed June 9, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We had a great time staying here, right in the heart of Sorrento, but as the other reviews said not loud at night due to brilliant triple glazed doors In the bedroom. We loved sitting watch the world go by from the balcony and seeing the bustling street below.

The place is beautiful and has everything you might need, the bathroom especially is nice with an amazing shower! The bedroom has a really high ceiling and feels really airy and comfortable.

Stefania made us feel so welcome and gave great advice for our stay. She recommended really lovely fish restaurants on the harbour front which were the highlight of our whole trip to Italy!
Thank you Stefania for your help, the praise your flat has received so far is richly deserved.
