Budget Hotel/B&B in Sorrento

Will be staying in Sorrento for 3 nights the end of April, 2008. My wife and I ( both age 50 but still young at heart)) need to locate a hotel/B&B that is affordableand fits our budget.

I have look at these places: Casa Astarita B&B, Casa Sorrento and Lorelei et Londres and they seem to be decent places and somewhat affordable. I have also looked at Settimo and Hotel Minerva (which is 160Euro a night but looks very nice).

I guess you pay if you want a view. Has everyone stayed at any of these hotels and what advise or suggestions would you have for a couple, that is staying only 3 nights, and needs to stay with a reasonable budget.


Thanks for your advice

We stayed at the Hotel Il Nido (www.ilnido.it) last May and really loved it. We had a double room with private bath and a balcony overlooking the beautiful Bay of Naples for just 100 euros/nt, which included a substantial buffet breakfast. They also have a very nice restaurant on site serving dinner as well. The hotel is located about ten minutes outside of downtown Sorrento, on the road leading to the Amalfi Coast, but they provide hourly shuttles to and from town. We loved the peace and quiet of the location and would definitely go back again.

I second Il Nido. It is very reasonably priced for those on a budget. The view is beautiful and you can get your own balcony with a table and chairs. They also have a clothesline on the balcony in case you need to wash out any laundry.

The rooms have safes, mini fridges, some have bathtubs, all have ensuite bathrooms. The rooms are very clean too.

Not only that, but the staff is helpful and friendly & the shuttle service is convenient and reliable. The restaurant is delicious and reasonably priced also. On my first trip there we tried the restaurant and did not eat anywhere else while in Sorrento. I kind of wanted to try different restaurants, but it was so good we kept going back. I have visited Il Nido on two separate occasions and it is a great place to get away from the hustle and bustle of Sorrento.

You will not be disappointed with Il Nido. Oh, they have free internet too.

I know very well Casa Astarita, it is on the main street of Sorrento, Corso Italia.
Good rooms and very good breakfast.
But no view and, if you reserve, ask for room whose balcony is not on the main street as there are noises also in the late evening and early in the morning.
Casa Astarita is perfect if you do not have car and if you enjoy the center of the town.
Walking few minutes you are at the main train station of Sorrento.

Have a lovely trip, ciao.

Vincenzo

Sounds like while il nido, is 10 minutes outside town, it is a good value and provides you with a great view and staying in town, with no view and noise is something you need to consider. Are the rides to and from the hotel to town and to the train convenient??

We stayed at Villa Anna in Sorrento, A 10 minute walk to the centre, able to walk to train with luggage, no view from our garden suite but very peaceful.

Il Nido's shuttle was entirely convenient. They will pick you directly from the train station upon your arrival and the drop-off/pick-up point in town is centrally located. They don't go to the marina, but there's a little bus that goes to and from the marina to the main square, Piazza Tasso, which is just a few minutes from the hotel's "meeting point", and it only costs 1E. (You can walk from Piazza Tasso to the marina as well, but the steps down to the road leading to the marina are quite steep and the road is very narrow.)
