Rome/Sorrento/Amalfi Coast - looking for hotel advice

Hi
We are heading to Italy in June for 8 days and planning on flying to Rome and heading directly to Sorrento and spending two nights there (maybe a day trip to Capri). We're then thinking of heading to Amalfi for 3 nights, then back up to Rome for the final 3 nights. We're in our late 30's and are looking for some nice places to stay - but reasonably priced: no more than $300 US/night. Would like nice sea views in both Sorrento and Amalfi; would love a pool in Amalfi; and would love to be close to the Spanish steps in Rome.

Any suggestions on places to stay?
Thanks so much!

Hi Babyflower:
I suggest you take a look at the web site of La Bussola Hotel in amalfi; beautyful location waterfront,certainly in your budget,but I think no pool.
Good luck and have a nice trip!!

Hey Babyflower,

Wondering if you could save some time by flying into Naples (Sorrento) then head to Amalfi; then Rome via Salerno (or visa versa)??

I am planning a similar trip & this was one of the suggestions brought out through one of my posts. It might gain you some extra time for sight-seeing. Just a thought if this is feasible.

Similar dilemma here. I have to fly in and out of Rome and have a total of 9 days. Want to leave the last 3 for Rome because my flight out is early, leaving 6 nights in Sorrento. I was going to day trip out of Sorrento but now wondering if I should do 3 nights in Sorrento and 3 in Amalfi or Positano. Can't decide whether it's worth all the hotel switching or not.

Mykidsmom99 and Jeangail:
We were at the A.C. in september 2009 for a week and were perfectly happy staying in only one place(Amalfi); but could have done equally well in Positano or even Sorrento.You can see all our activities in my report:

In the AC really all distances are short and public transport is very good(of couse depending of the month may be you will be standing in a bus).Anyway you will enjoy,as every thing is sooo beautyful....
