This is a magnificant structure filled with ceramic tiles and marble, with outstanding views of the bay. Their shuttle service is on time and fairly frequent. Also, there is a SITA bus stop that goes to the train/bus station early, so you can use it to catch the SITA bus along the Amalfi coast for an excellent 11 euro all day trip. We used the hotel for trips to Capri, Pompei, and Paestum (and the Amalfi coast). Staff are frienly and knowledgable. The view of the Bay, Naples, Sorrento, Vesuvus, and even nightime fireworks was outstanding. The Balcony is very pleasant, and rooms are large. Art lines the hall ways. When you stay in Sorrento, you have two choices, be down in the city (better for spontaneous walks through Sorrento), but views are not great, or stay in a more remote hillside hotel, with fabulous views of the bay, but need to take the shuttle to Sorrento. Only two complaints that kept it from being a 5: Carpets on the 2nd floor were very dirty and needed replacement, and breakfast was mediocre. Old buns, instant coffee, so-so fruit, and yucky runny eggs were the offering. Oversall, I would stay again, just plan to diet for breakfast. Hotel Aurora Restaurant has excellent Pizza and Pasta at Piazza Tasso.
