It was very central to the station and shops.
Hotel Tourist offered us exactly what we wanted during our week trip to Sorrento. Staff were typically Italian, left you to your own devises but were always there to assist from sneaking us in at 4am to tour/locality advice. The hotel is excellently located. 3 minute walk to train/bus station and 5 minute walk from Piazza Tasso. It is far enough away to be central but not over priced central hotel. Breakfast was sufficiant and generous. The pool area is beautiful to chill out and relax in and surprisingly quiet for a central city hotel.
the hotel is a 5-10 minute walk to the piaza and the port The train and bus station is within 5 minutes walk. The rooms were cleaned daily and the pool and pool bar are very quiet
We took a room with the balcony and the hotel is on a busy junction but is quiet by 9.30pm so if you need a quiet room take one on the swimming pool side of the hotel.
This hotel is excellent for the price. It is very convienient to rail/ bus station and 5 - 10 minute walk from main square in Sorrento. You will not get a hotel in a central location such as this, with a swimming pool, (which is necessary in mid summer), at a better price. The staff are all very friendly. and the traffic noise is not a problem if you keep the windows closed. Rooms are air conditioned which works best with closed windows anyway. Loved Sorrento - would go back tomorrow if I could - would stay at Hotel Tourist
Location was excellent. Hotel itself was clean, and well-kept. Staff was not particularly friendly, but not unfriendly either. Only set-back was the air-conditioning... it did not push a lot of cool air around, especially at night.
Location was excellent. Good budget hotel for a few nights
A bit loud in the mornings when groups arrive or leave but no noise problem at night, which allows good sleep.
we had to request that the air-conditioning be left on at night when humid.
The hotel was affordable, clean and had good facilities including a great pool. The staff were very good and our stay was thoroughly enjoyable.
The best thing about this hotel besides the price was the pool. However would have to say it was only one step up from a backpackers.
They kept turning off the airconditioning when we left the room as they controlled it all from reception and as it was 38 degrees while we were there we found the rooms very hot.
Good location and nice breakfast buffet, rooms were clean and tidy
Walls are very thin and you can hear everything from the adjacent rooms
Location, reasonable rates, lovely garden & pool.
Boiled eggs offered for breakfast too often.
The bed was comfortable with extra pillows already provided...lovely touch. Air con worked a treat. Location was good;we simply walked everwhere. Shops, cafes and restaurants all near by...including the main square and train station. Staff were very friendly. Got to know we liked tea for breakfast, which was twinnings...lovely. The pool was warm and had gentle wide steps that took you into the pool or you could cool off by sitting on the steps in the water...great design. Pool attendant was always present and friendly and the towels were fluffy and big for the pool/sunbathing area. Lovely lemon trees grown by the pool to provide shade. Don't be put off by the train line next to hotel...we rarely heard a thing. Breakfast was good with a good selection each morning.
Our room had a balcony... But it faced a side street which was disappointing.... :( Didn't spoil our experience though.
iHotel Tourust was comparatively reasonably priced and, while far from being a luxury hotel, more or less met my expectations. I was especially grateful to the staff member at the front desk who, when I asked what time checkout was and whether I'd have time to go to a laundromat and do laundry before it, just waved his hand and said 'Go ahead and do your laundry' even though it was clear I wouldn't be done before checkout time. Nice gesture that I appreciated. By the way, big plus of hotel Tourist that I discovered too late is the existence of a decent self-service laundry business in I think literally the same building, or at least, in the adjacent one (entrance from the side street).
Well, um, it's pretty modest - no frills or luxuries. But certainly decent.
Easy to di d and easy walk into the centre of town. Small pool and facilities really good.
Room was a bit small for three adults. Bathroom likewise and needs a bit of updating.
Fair price for the location, 5 min walk from centre of sorrento. Hotel staff were friendly and the breakfast was good, large varity of continental breakfast. Very very clean, sun on pool for most of the day. Not a spectacular hotel but if your not planning on spending lots of time in there as you want to be out and about it is an overall nice stay.
I thought the extra price for the balconey was a bit steep considering the views were not FAB but if your a smoker its ideal!
