"Great safe and quiet neighborhood near waterfront"
We actually stayed at the "overflow" private property around the corner, for a much better experience than the hotel itself - wonderful family hosts, closed private home with parking, individual breakfast in our own kitchen, etc. - Glorious!

There is two big problems in there: Water which was very little three days on a row so we couldn't take showers and the second problem is noise, the doors are slamed all the time and in the morning it is quiet disturbing. Breakfast is very average and if you like american coffee like I do you'd better get it elswhere. One good point the personnel is very kind (except maybe the cleaning lady who seems pissed at us every morning because we get up late I guess, we couldn't figure why lol)

The Porto salvo is a mid range hotel set amongst very expensive hotels, creating a costly setting. It IS a beautiful setting. There is a bar on the main floor. Several younger patrons seemed to like the value setting. It is a 20 minute walk to the touristy Sorrento.

"Affordable and clean accommodation near Sorrento"
This hotel is not in Sorrento. It is in a neighboring town called St. Agnello. Facilities are clean and rooms are spacious. Mattresses are not very comfortable. Morning staff was very helpful, evening staff not so much...

"Could be closer to sorrento"
Nice stay and interresting historic building. Staff was lovely and helpful even during night time when the office was closed. Had the double room with a shared bathroom (which was a surprise) but it was okay because it was always available when we needed to use it. Only thing on the negative side was the location. It is supposedly 15 min by walk to sorrento center, but it was more like 30+ min on a highly traffic road. Suggest walking shoes, sun screen, and a detailed map (which you can get from the hotel) and a little patience while walking.

"Stay somewhere else This place was horrible for t"
I hesitated staying here after reading the mixed reviews but I took a chance. It's an old run down convent, apart from a paint job I don't reckon they've updated anything else. Rooms and basic, beds are horrible we had 2 singles for a double, one single was very hard, the other was hard, very squeaky and could feel the springs. The TV barely worked and looked like the first colour TV made. Half the channels had no reception. They don't like you using the aircon, they've even gone to the trouble to cover with a shelf so you'll need to pull the shelf off the wall to find the switch, between 7 and 10am they usually turn the air cons off by a main switch so you sweat and have to leave the room. Shared bathroom was poor, I felt dirtier after showering then I did before. Mould and grime in the shower. If you were lucky enough to get hot water it takes ages to come through. Tiles down the hallway are broken and loose, make sure you look where you're going or you'll break your toes multiple times. Not good for people who can't walk up two flights of stairs with your luggage, don't expect anyone to help you. Breakfast was poor, many of the cakes are used day after day until there all gone. They offer 'freshly squeezed juice from the gardens fruit trees' it's more like watered down juice from a carton. Often you will have to ask for more food, they don't like to put too much out. Kitchen lady was grumpy. Staff don't like to acknowledge you unless you speak first. Wouldn't recommend.

"Average hotel, way overpriced on weekends."
In general it is an average hotel, clean but not outstanding. Simple room and facilities. It used to be a covent. A bit far from Sorrento by foot but good public transportation after a 15 minute walk to main street. We were nicely welcomed by the owner and her daughter, but evening/night staff provided just fair service. Air conditioning didn't work in our room so I had to ask for a new room. TV worked poorly in new room. Remote control was very sticky (a bit disgusting) and buttons were missing so it didn't work. Good points: nice terrasse with live music.

"You get what you pay for"
I booked at hotel purple and wished I hadn't. Now I understand why there's no refunds or cancellations. The place was old and run down. One staff member was nice but the rest can't be bothered acknowledging you unless you speak first. Roomed was cleaned daily. Shared bathroom was average. Shower pooled over your feet and floods rest of bathroom. Mould and grime in shower. If you're lucky enough to get hot water it takes ages to come through. No hand towel to dry your hands with in bathroom but they'll supply one drinking cup if your game enough to share with random guests! Gross. Tiles in the hallway are broken and lifting and you're likely to stub your toe if your not watching. Breakfast was very average, they don't like to fill too much up, often you have to ask for more food. They don't like you using the air con they've even covered them with shelves - it get switched on at night and turned off at random times in the morning between 7 and 10am so they basically want you to leave the room. There's a club across the road often plays music until late. Mornings are very noisy. The restaurant I didn't eat at, only saw one couple eating there the whole time. It's about a 30 minute walk to Sorrento central and add another 10 minutes if you want Sorrento port. The views are great around the area, that's about all. I hesitated booking here after reading the mixed reviews but gave it a shot but I wouldnt book here again.

"Friendly hotel, great location"
I stayed here with my son for 7 nights in January 2015. Formerly a convent, the building has lots of character. Our room had stunning views across the Bay of Naples. It was clean, comfortable and had en-suite facilities. Breakfast was a self-service buffet. With choice of cereal, toast, croissants, briocchi and fresh fruit. The bar area was bright and clean, and opened onto the garden. It was well stocked with good choice. The hotel does have more of the feeling of a hostel. Suited to students or travellers rather than families. The building is stone, marble and has high ceilings which although charming also means it can be a little noisy, but not unbearably so. I would certainly stay there again.

"Very Disappointed"
The hotel was a very difficult to find but once we did find the place we were told they did not have our guaranteed (and already paid for) room. They tried to send us to a B&B that was also very difficult to find and when we arrived plumbers were working in the bathroom (at 4:00pm), they had no A/C and the manager wanted us to make a payment. We were not certain if the whole deal was a scam. I contacted Hotels.com and they did make a refund of the charges. When you visit Sorrento do not try to economize.

Comfy bed, very clean linen, powerful shower and lots of hot water. Breakfast was a bit disappointing, but that wasn't a big deal. Make sure you rinse the kettle out before using...it was very dirty inside. Friday night's are party/disco nights, so that was really loud until midnight. I would definitely go back there as it was ideally located to the beach and the town and very good value for money.

Man kann das Hotel nur jemandem empfehlen, für den ein günstiger Preis wichtig ist. Die Ausstattung ist weit unter einer durchschnittlichen Jugendherberge. Z. Bsp. war die Gemeinschaftsdusche nicht geputzt, und einer Schülerin ist das Bett zusammengekracht, da in die Einrichtung offenbar seit Jahrzehnten nichts investiert worden ist. Dazu gibt es trotz der Randlage leider einen hohen Lärmpegel von der Straße her.

Leider konnten die Hotelangestellten bei unserer Ankunft die Reservierung nicht finden. Da unser gebuchtes Zimmer schon vergeben war bekamen wir ein anderes, leider schlechteres Zimmer. Wir haben ein Doppelzimmer mit eigenem Bad/WC gebucht und mussten aber dann in der ersten Nacht in einem Mehrbettzimmer (in diesem Zimmer gab es 1 Doppelbett und 2 Stockbetten) mit Bad/WC am Gang nächtigen. Erst am zweiten Tag unseres Aufenthaltes bekamen wir das von uns gebuchte Zimmer. Für diese Unannehmlichkeit wurden uns jedoch bei der Abreise 20€ erlassen.

"Außen hui, innen na ja..."
Das Hotel liegt in herrlicher Umgebung am Stadtrand von Sorrento in unmittelbarer Nähe der Steilküste. Das Zentrum war zu Fuß in 30 min zu erreichen. Wir hatten eine Übernachtung in einem 4er Zimmer gebucht. Wir hatten glücklicherweise einen wunderschönen Blick auf die Bucht von Sorrento, der für den sonstigen bescheidenen Standard entschädigte. Die Ausstattung entsprach zwar im Wesentlichen der Hotelbeschreibung, leider hatte das Hotel den Charme einer heruntergekommen Jugendherberge. Die Sauberkeit entsprach ebenfalls nicht den üblichen Hotelstandards. Vom Frühstück haben wir daher abgesehen. Hervorzuheben ist das freundliche, hilfsbereite Personal und ein Hoteleigener kostenfreier Parkplatz. Für eine Übernachtung im Rahmen eines Tagestrips nach Sorrento war es daher gerade so akzeptabel. Wir würden zukünftig allerdings nicht mehr dort buchen.

"Familäres Hotel mit Charme in ruhiger Lage"
Gut vom Bahnhof erreichbar, ruhige kleine Str. auf einer Klippe, Meer ein paar Schritte entfernt.Man kann entspannt an kleiner "Promenade" einen traumhaften Sonnenuntergang genießen. Hotel grenzt unmittelbar an eine kl. Kirche, "dicke Klostermauern", alle Fenster mit Holzläden, von einig. Zimmern zumindest teilw. Meerblick. Wände weiß gekalkt, teilw. mit kl. Kuppeldecke, Einrichtung "klosterspartanisch" rustikal - aber alles Nötige vorhanden. Flure und Zimmer gefliesst, daher etwas hellhörig.Wir hatten ein Zimmer mit privatem Bad(Dusche/WC) über den Flur; das war für uns okay, zumal im Zimmer noch 1 Waschbecken vorhanden ist. Bushaltestelle in der Nähe. Im Hotel gibt es viele Tipps für Ausflüge in Umgebung, einschließl. Stadt-, Bus- und Fähreplan und Restauranttipps. Viele sprechen englisch, kaum Deutsch. Das Frühstück im Hotel ist für italienische Verhältnisse recht gut; Kleines Buffet mit 2 Sorten Brot, frischen Croissants (selbst gebacken - kommen ständig warm aus der Küche nach!), Eier, div. Marmeladen, Honig, Nußnougatcreme, Müsli und Jogurt. Fruchtsäfte, Tees und Cafe Americano und auf Wunsch auch Cappuchino/Espresso. Auf Wunsch kann am Abend sehr preiswert im Haus gegessen werden. Es gibt einen Aufenthaltsraum, eine kleine Bar mit zivilen Preisen auch für Spirituosen. Ausserdem gibt es einen schönen wilden Garten mit kl. Kinderspielplatz und Loungeecken. Insgesamt ein empfehlenswertes, familiäres Haus mit gutem Preisleistungsverhältnis und sehr freundl. Personal.

"Lovely"
04/04/16 Lisa C
Very welcoming staff and a nice converted monastery (?). Stayed in bed and breakfast basis which was great. They offered evening meals and we tried this for one of their themed nights. Karaoke and dancing with the locals who were there. Very enjoyable. Rooms were on the small side but adequate, clean and had a sea view. Small pool and terrace area, used this everyday on return from our day trips. Mostly quiet around the pool, a few sunbeds and patio furniture. All completely met our needs. Relaxed atmosphere in the hotel, lots of visitors were touring Italy and were staying only a few nights (or that's the ones I spoke to). Ideal hotel to use as a base for touring/day trips. Don't use it if you want to stay in the hotel all day everyday for a fortnight! The owner (?) gave us good advise on trips, especially our day trip into Naples. She gave us taxi prices, places to see and shopping areas. The hotel give you a key for getting in late at night, so no rush to get back. Ideally located for all the major sites. Easy to get to the train station or bus stops. Quieter location than Sorrento, and possible to walk there if you want something busier for the evenings. Sant Agnello was perfect for us.

We used Purple as a base for Sorrento and the surrounding area. Our room (double bed with bathroom and sea view) was simple but clean which was perfect for the price. If you are looking for a place to stay in the area and are not looking to haemorrhage cash, this is the place for you. The owners dogs are amazingly friendly and the staff are incredibly helpful. The food (breakfast) was simple and performed the function. This place is more of a hostel, if you are looking for great food then there are a number of restaurants nearby that more than cater for every need.

We just got back from lunch here.. Unfortunately was the only place open and near us. Has the potential to be lovely in a nice tree lined garden. However the pile of dog poo in the corner of the eating areas, dogs in and out the kitchen, lack of food available from the menu, a pink uncooked hamburger still cold, cheap fast food cold french fries, stale bread and general lack of presentation and effort with food means this is a very very poor place to eat. Am just awaiting a bad stomach from the bloody and cold burger. Avoid avoid avoid.

09/04/15 Jason H New York City, New York
I recently stayed here for a week for my big summer vacation. I had an amazing experience. The property is in a great location, very close to Sorrento with a great view of the coast and Mediterranean Sea. The view of the Mediterranean Sea which is just steps away from the property, was breathtaking. The fresh breeze and peace it provides was very calming and tranquil. The service was terrific. The hotel staff is very friendly and most importantly, very knowledgeable about the area. Information about the city and all the schedules for public transportation are conveniently posted in the hotel lobby. The hotel staff was always very helpful and answered any questions I had about the city. If you’re in the mood to relax at the property, there is a pool to take a swim and tanning beds to take in some sun. Furthermore, the accommodations are a wonderful value for a B&B. My room was cleaned daily and the comfortable beds provide a good night’s rest. The wifi speed was really great as well. The signal strength of the wifi was quite optimal and made it very easy to stream movies on my MacBook. The continental breakfast every morning is a great way to start the day. The ham, croissants and fresh fruit were filling. Additionally, the hotel restaurant serves great Italian style meals. For dinner, the spaghetti with tomato sauce and cherry tomatoes was particularly my favorite dish. For lunch, the toasted ham and mozzarella sandwiches were delicious. The chefs are talented and the servers were prompt and friendly. Overall, I highly recommend if on holiday in the area. The service was spot on. My stay here was pleasant and memorable. I retuned back home to New York City fully rested, relaxed and recharged.

"DO NOT GO HERE!!!"
07/18/15 Laurann O Nottingham, United Kingdom
Terrible experience, they over booked my room, they then tried to send me to a nunnary miles outside sorrento in a dirty town (assuring me that breakfast included), the owner is so rude, after refusing this 'alternative accommodation' they put me in an almost air b&b across the road, infested with ants. After giving me a bed here I came back with all my belongings moved and additional beds put in with no notice. I saw them checking in people after me despite telling me this was booked out. So upsetting, this place is not as advertised, so many more beautiful places I could have booked. Treated so badly and upset. Please avoid this place if you want a good holiday they just want money and do not care about their guests. The choice is up to you!!

"Just okay."
06/28/15 Jase-and-Stef Melbourne, Australia
This hostel (not a B&B) is in a fantastic location, but the accommodation itself is very average. The rooms are relatively clean and basic, but the shared bathroom is not clean and the breakfast is very poor. The only saving grace for this hostel is that you can walk out the front door and ten steps later there is a million dollar view. Unfortunately the air-conditioning wasn't working while we were there but they managed to put us in a larger room to compensate. Also, there is no pool. Apparently they are seeking some kind of council approval. Pretty sure the photo on their website is of a neighbouring pool. The staff were nice enough but they clearly lied on several occasions and I do not get the impression that they care about their guests or their business. Sant'agnello itself is a lovely area. If you don't feel like going into Sorrento (which is very touristy), Sant'agnello has some nice cafes and restaurants. It is a 25 minute walk into Sorrento from the hostel. I would not recommend staying here, even if you are on a budget.

Private parking on arrival - very useful! The lady that checked us in seemed rather scatty and wasn't sure what she was doing - but was very friendly and helpful. Room was not as purple as expected, in fact, most of the colour scheme was pink and magenta. Room was adequate and clean, yet very old fashioned. Bathroom fan sounded more like a Lear Jet landing on an aircraft carrier. Room could have used air con, as it was a noisy neighbourhood at night with the windows open. We were lazy and ate here, set menu was fresh, home cooked and decent - inexpensive eating. Breakfast was not as advertised! The "home cooked pastries and cakes" were shop bought Swiss Rolls and prepackaged croissants. The orange juice "straight from the citrus in the garden" tasted more like Tesco Value weak orange squash. Overall a fair visit, and cheap for Sorrento!

Porto Salvo is an old monastery/convent converted to an inn. It is about a 10 min walk from the Sant'Agnello train station. The inn has bikes that you can rent (at least it did when we visited), and you can walk down to the beach. The city is very pretty in the month of May and early June with blooming flowers everywhere you look. There is a bus to go to Amalfi and Positano from here. Pompeii is also close.

I stayed at the Porto Salvo with my son for a week in January. We wanted to be close to Naples as we were there to see Napoli v Juventus and I didn't want to stay in the city centre. The building is historic, a former convent which means it has real character. We were given a friendly welcome, offered advice regarding the local area, transport links and local bars & restaurants. We were given room 4, which has wonderful views across the Bay of Naples. The room was basic but had en-suite facilities of bathroom and shower, was cleaned daily and was comfortable. The hotel caters mainly towards students, at least that was the case when we were there; and certainly has the feel of a hostal about it. I didn't have the chance to see other rooms but I know there were those which had to use separate bathroom facilities. As this is an old building, it is stone and marble with high ceilings which means noise does travel, although we didn't have any major problems with sleep. Breakfast is a self-service buffet; a choice of cereal, toast, croissants, briocchi and fresh fruit. Tea, coffee and fruit juice. The bar area is bright and new. Titled the Purple Sorrento, it has a cocktail style bar which opens into the gardens. There is also private off-street parking with electronic gates. The key question..would I stay here again? A definate yes.

we had a very pleasant stay, all the staff were extremely friendly. We were lucky to be upgraded to a room with a private bathroom and although breakfast wasnt very adequate as almost everything was gone 30mins after it started. No complaints. Everything was clean, and all the staff were really good. The chef was really sweet and cooked us a one of the best pasta we had during our 2 week trip to italy
