Casa Astarita Bed & Breakfast is a real jewel, located in the very heart of Sorrento. This place took shape from an idea of the Astarita sisters, who, for many generations have been cultivating the art of friendly hospitality and it was created by the fantasy and the good taste for traditions as well as for innovation, of the well-known interior designer, Mr. Marco De Luca. The above-said definitely makes Casa Astarita the ideal solution for those wishing to match good taste, comfort and warm hospitality. Built in the family palace of the 18th century, this B&B still bears the atmosphere of the period, in which the house was built: a mixture of elegance and simplicity. It is a prefect combination between antique and modern style, where you can admire family furniture pieces, decorated 18th-century majolicas, together with the harmonic intertwining of arches and vaults. The air-conditioned public areas are not that bad either. What is most striking, is the wonderful sensation of feeling at home, which is why Casa Astarita invites guests to bring the whole family. Guests have access to complimentary wired and wireless high-speed Internet access.
The ladies who run this b&b are so friendly and helpful. The rooms are all decorated differently with beautiful fireplaces and floor tiles. The breakfast in the morning is lovely with lots of fresh bread, fruit and homemade cakes.
One night we had a room in the front of the b&b which was very noisey from a bar playing music until the early hours. The second room we had in the back was smaller in size but much quieter.
Relaxed homely feel to the place.
Staff was very friendly, helpful and accomidating. We were able to use the kitchen facilities, which was extremely convenient. Breakfast had long hours and free juice and water were available to us 24/7 . The room was large and very comfortable. Flat screen TV with english language channels was a big plus.
The shower head was positioned 2 feet high and had to sit in the tub to shower. It was a good 10 - 15 minute walk from the train station. It would have helped if the hotel put detailed directions on the web site.
Very hospitable. Lovely room. Great breakfast. Very friendly and helpful.
Night time noise of something mechanical.
Home like feeling. Every convenience was provided. Very thoughtful owners
