“Lots of Great Things To Say About Palazzo Guardati”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 January 2012

As always, the first thing I will point out (due to my distrust of some of these sites) is the fact that I absolutely stayed at this Palazzo Guardati, for four nights in September 2011.

To sum up in a nutshell how my wife and I felt about the hotel, if and when we get back to Sorrento we won't bother looking elsewhere for a place to stay, we will simply be rebooking at Palazzo Guardati. We were really pleased with our experience there overall.

The Good

About a five minute walk from the train station, about a one-minute walk from Tasso Square, about a two-minute walk to the marketplace and about a five-minute walk to the pier, this place is in the perfect spot.

Hotel is nice and quaint, very nice furnishings with wood everywhere and nice furniture. Rooms are really nice size for Europe, also nicely furnished. Bathrooms a bit on the small side but nicely tiled and everything in them worked perfectly. Due to the size of the hotel, there are not many patrons so at breakfast or on the terrace, you often feel like you have the hotel to yourself.

Breakfast is standard fare, it won't blow you away but it is always hot, and the gentleman that makes everyone's coffee certainly adds a touch of cheer to everyone's morning.

The upstairs terrace is awesome really nice views, nice bar attendant and a nice little pool if the weather gets hot.

The service desk was fantastic as well. Upon check-in they gave us lots of details about what we needed to do in order to visit some of the better known sites (e.g. Capri, Ischia, Amalfi, etc...), as well as where we needed to go to find a laundromat. We had one minor issue (listed under the bad) with the noise, we mentioned it to the front-desk on our way out for the day, and we were told they would try to find us to another room away from the restaurant. When we got back to the hotel, we were told they had found us a room on a higher floor, and they had moved our stuff to that room already for us. We wre really impressed.

The Bad

Our only complaint, as mentioned, was the noise. Our first room was on the first floor, and it was beautiful; the only issue was that at night, you could hear the restaurant banging something fierce downstairs -- and it lasted well into the night, until at least 1am even though the streets are all basically empty at like midnite. Honestly my wife and I spent time trying to determine what they could be cooking that would need what sounded like a jackhammer!

Small tip: The bar at the end of the alle as you come out on to the Tasso Square ("Syrenuse" maybe) and the Fauno bar across the street were both decently priced places to grab dinner -- good food, good atmosphere -- but the restaurant in the alley was overpriced and the food was only so-so (forget it's name now but you can't miss it - to the left when you exit the hotel).

Room Tip: The higher from the ground you are, the less likely you will be impacted by the noise of the restaur...

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 December 2011

We enjoyed staying at this hotel which is situated very close to the main square. We had pleasant room which overlooked the street. We were warned that this could be noisy but we weren't really bothered by any noise. There are many enjoyable local restaurants very close by. The staff were pleasant and helpful and the room clean and reasonable spacious. Breakfast was not very exciting and the internet connection was incredibly slow. After long and very hot days sightseeing we really enjoyed the rooftop swimming pool which was small but very clean and towels provided.

We stayed here in October 2011 and were really very happy. Our weather was too windy and occasionally rainy to enjoy the rooftop terrace-oh well. Our room was classic-looking and the bath modern and chic with a huge shower with oval window.
Frankly, breakfast was worth skipping. You shouldn't be skipping meals in Italy.

We were unable to get any type of concierge service-not for dry cleaning, car reservations, or restaurant recommendations.

Our shower did not drain properly and required service.

Walking in Sorrento is very nice and it is a great base to see Pompei and Ercolano from. We were here in October and the beach was basically all shut down, which was our scheduling goof, in hindsight. Walk in the town, be sure and walk down by the water and have lunch at the Five Sisters!

The Palazzo Guardati is literally located in the middle of Sorrento-it's location is perfect.

I recently stayed at the Palazzo Guardati and highly recommend it. Firstly, the hotel staff: Marco on Reception with his great sense of humour and his amazing local knowledge and friendly Vittorio singing in the Breakfast Room as he looks after you each morning - both of them made our stay here a delight! The hotel is in a great location just off the main piazza in central Sorrento, a short walk from everything. The rooms are spacious and well fitted out. Although my room on the first floor and facing the narrow street was dark, my friend's room across the corridor was on the nice inner courtyard and was bright and breezy! (I will definitely ask for one of these rooms next time I stay here). The hotel is exceptionally clean and beautifully maintained throughout. There is a rooftop terrace with fantastic views in all directions and a small but nice swimming pool. A great hotel - you won't be disappointed!

Room Tip: My room on the street was a bit dark, so if you like a nice light room, ask for one that faces the i...

Just returned from a week's stay at the Palazzo Guradati and it was wonderful! The location is great, the staff couldn't be nicer and breakfasting with Vitorio is a special way to start the day.

Room Tip: With only 23 rooons, all are good
