    The hotel which is a 3 star hotel is in an excellent location on the Marina Piccolo, well positioned for enjoying all that the Amalfe Cost has to offer, only a minute walk to the ferries for visiting the islands and other ports of interest. The walk to the centre is a short but a very step one however every 15 minutes up to 2230 one can take a bus which only cost €1, the same bus for the same price also takes you to the main railway station which is very convenient as not only can you catch trains to Naples but also buses to other areas on the cost, most important it is also the terminal for the coach to and from Naples airport costing €10 each way. The room was a sea view one that I highly recommend, not only is the view across the bay a pleasant one but the hassle and bustle adds to the sprit of Italian life, by 2030 the area is relatively quite and there is a choice of 2 or 3 restaurants in the immediate area however the hotel also has an excellent fish restaurant. The bathrooms are small and the shower will be uncomfortable for large people. The management and staff where helpful and could communicate well in English. I was on BB, which was sufficient as I do recommend you make the most of the evening and visit the many opportunities in Sorrento, if not for a meal then for a coffee and a pastry and of course joining the locals for a gelato and the famous passeggiata, the ritual evening walk

    The hotel at times caters for groups which effects the breakfast as the choice is less unless you arrive before the groups do.

    Beautiful view. Close shopping. Good restaurants.

    Access is a little difficult. Not as clean as it should be. Front desk people not as friendly as I would like.

    We loved the location. It was literally right on the port, close to the beach (steps away). Its a walk up to the city but there are buses that run so often its very conveniant and they take you all the way up to the city and main square. Tickets are only 1 euro per person. So you don't have to walk up 300 stairs. But its very easy to walk down. The breakfast was excellent - lots of selection and very tasty. The bed was comfortable. Also had three restaurants down stairs. The staff were so welcoming and friendly.

    The room was very small. The bathroom was tiny and akward with a tiny shower. The towels were poor quality. The tv was terrible - it's not "satellite" really. You get only a few channels all in italian, and if youa re lucky an english channel pops up once in a while like cnn.

    Good

    The location was ideal for our purposes of ferry trips to other towns and the restaurant attached to the hotel was very good and offered a 10% discount to Il Faro guests.

    The air conditioner was very noisy and leaving the french doors open was not an option as it was not secure and also it was very noisy with noise from traffic & the port. Breakfast was not great for us Australians as it was mostly sweat breads but we survived.

    The view from the window, although you had to stand on the bed to see it.

    Surliness of staff. Broken toilet seat that was reported but ignored. Broken shower screen - not reported as we knew nothing would be done. Muesli at breakfast on first day but not on any other day. Very little choice of breakfast.

    We thought that the staff were fantastic and very helpful. As the hotel was not full we were upgraded to a Sea view room at no extra charge.The hotel facilities were excellent apart from the Wifi which was a little difficult, but the shower was the best in Italy!. The room views were wonderful over the port area, and the location to Capri and Naples ferries were none better. A 2 minute walk to restaurants on the sea front. The stairs descent from the upper town at night was easy with the magnificent fairy-land lit port below beckoning the night cap on arrival. Bus access to the town squares and station was easy. We just loved our other-world place! Central for visiting day visits to Pompeii and Amalfi Coast.

    The only problem was the difficulty with Wifi access, but this was solved by the staff.

    Great location for easy access to most places, despite it being down by the harbour.

    Was more expensive in the Sorrento area than in Naples but this is to be expected.

    Very good

    We paid for a seaview and were in awe of the rooms that we received. These were probably the best in the hotel due to the large balconies that they had. Hotel was spotless and the staff from morning to night were very friendly. Good location for organizing any of your trips from the port just outside the hotel.

    Breakfast was adequate , maybe a fuller selection of breads and meat and less cakes . There are a lot of steps to get up to the center of the town but for me ( 40ish ) could make it in 5mins but I was with others that took the lift that wasn't too far away. Timed this at 15 minutes gentle walk from hotel door to center square.
