"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...Genuine Expedia guest review
Air conditioning no good. Food was good. Lady serving food grouchy.Genuine Expedia guest review
This was an okay experience. Everything about it was average or less, except for the service of a desk ckerk, which was outstanding. Breakfast was simple and so was the room. Nothing special jumps out. I should have stayed in Sorrento, rather than this place as it is a good 20 minute walk from the train station and Sorrento is where the action is! At […] this price, I could have reserved a better place in Sorrento. I would NOT recommend it. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good hotel for budget-minded travelers!"
Domus Porto Salvo is a wonderful inexpensive hotel but does have some limitations. When we stayed there in October 2012 our reservation for two rooms was confirmed with bathrooms in each room. However, when we arrived only one room was available with a bath. The other room had to use a hall bath. They did compensate us and did move us to a room with […] a bath on the third day of our six night stay, however. The rooms are clean, simple without air conditioning or fan (no thermostat that we saw) so we needed to open our windows for ventilation. We woke every morning to smell someone burning trash so we had to decide on whether to sleep with the windows closed and be hot, or to keep the windows open and smell burning in the AM. Other than this, I have no other complaints. The staff is very helpful and the complimentary breakfast is simple. I would have liked some fruit and good bread, but the cereal, coffee and juice was fine. The location is close to the water and beautiful views are within a block of the hotel. Be ready to walk into Sorrento (a 20+minute walk) or to the train/bus station. I feel that the hotel met my expectations considering the amount of money we paid for the room.

Stay in the center of Sorrento. It takes 2o min from the train station to get to the hotel. The rooms are super basic. Most rooms dont have their own bathroom and you have to go and use the shared bathroom.There is no phone in the room and no shampoo. There is not enough buses from the hotel to take you to Sorrento. Sorrento is the hub and its beautiful. […] The staff are nice, the rooms are clean, and the breakfast is good. If you have your own car it may not be a bad deal. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Nice place to stay."
Very nice place to stay. The room size was nice and everything was clean.Genuine Expedia guest review
Stayed here in July 2014. Was looking for somewhere to stay on a budget that was quite central. This hotel is in a good location, close to la Marinella beach. The station is approx 15 - 20 mins walk away. The hotel is pleasant and the room was clean & comfy. Would definitely recommend.Genuine Expedia guest review
"The biggest advantage is its location!"
The place isn't perfect but pretty affordable. If you're looking for a cheap place to stay in quiet area you've just found it! Personally I like it because it's very close to my favourite restaurant Le Terrazze.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Incredible views from our room!"
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. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Would definitely stay again!"
The staff were extremely helpful and very friendly which helped make our stay memorable. Great location with stunning views. Rooms and facilities basic, but good value compared to some of the pricey hotels in the area. Lots of outdoor space which would have been great if the weather had been warm enough for us to use it!Genuine Expedia guest review
"I wouldn't stay anywhere else"
I've spent my birthday 3 times in this hotel now and the reason I keep going back is because it's brilliant. Rustic, simple, clean, the location is great, the price is incredible, and the staff are wonderful. I can't say enough good things about Porto Salvo to be honest!Genuine Expedia guest review
This hotel is characterful with beautiful grounds and a marvellous location with some rooms having views over the Bay of Naples. In that respect you get a lot for your money in this budget hotel. The hotel staff are lovely. On the downside, in the summer the rooms are hot without air conditioning and it would be good to have fresher looking bedding. […] And bring your anti mosquito spray.

Porto Salvo is in a quiet location, a 20-25 minute stroll down to Sorrento or 10-15 minutes to the local railway station which is one stop from Sorrento. The room was basic but clean and comfortable. Air-con worked and was quiet and I slept like a baby. Staff were very friendly and helpful, especially Elina and Maria. Good continental breakfast. Would […] cetainly go back to this B&B. Only negative comment was the unexpected Tourist Tax that I was not advised of until checking out. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Calm, clean and relaxing"
We had a great stay at Porto Salvo - the hotel was clean and cool even though we had really hot weather. Our bed was comfortable and there was a good selection of breakfast items (toast, cereal, yoghurt, croissants, meat, cheese, hot drinks). It is 50 metres from the coast with lovely views of the sea. It took us 25 minutes to walk to Sorrento but you […] can walk to the train station in 10 minutes and get the train instead which only takes 2 minutes. The owners were really accommodating and let us check-in in the late evening, with prompt replies to our emails. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"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. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"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. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

We really enjoyed our stay. Got plenty of help, friendly people, good breakfast, garden, close to 2 very nice restaurants, 1 small closeby and about 15-30 mins walk to Sorrento centre (close to a bus stop and quite close to train station). Only things I can complain about are that there is no A/C (so you need to choose between a hot quiet room or a […] colder noisy room), small room and the service around the breakfast could be better. You need to go to the breakfast early if you wanna choose between all of the options, they dont seem to refill everything after 8am and you might have to ask the kitchen for spoons.

"Atmospheric building well located for visits to Pompeii & Sorrento."
11/16/14 bucketlistman2014 Lincolnshire, United Kingdom
This is a former convent thus rooms & corridors reflect this & to me that was delightful. We were lucky & got a limited but wonderful sea view however under that very window was a badly damaged I guess electric fire which luckily we didn't require. Breakfast wasn't very good but adequate. The barman "Jon" who seemed to have 10 jobs & did virtually all tasks whilst girls did much less ... he was a very kind delightful guy! Frankly for what we paid I think eben with a few drawbacks this was a good value historic & well-situated hotel.
09/05/14 travellerinsurrey Surrey
Because I read the reviews before going I knew what to ask for with regard to rooms and I insisted on a room with a sea view and got exactly that apart from a big tree obscuring the view which really needs cutting back. Because of that view it made up for any other shortcomings, of which there are a number. The good points: the view we were lucky to have - we were in room 1 and we had french windows which opened out. Having our own bathroom and both were kept very clean. The location is good although could do with a nearby good bus service into Sorrento rather than having to walk. We opted to walk to the station which wasn't too bad and quite nice along the way and which led us to a pizza cafe where we had the best pizza we ever had - I think it was called Joe's, its near to the station. The bad points: appalling beds. Breakfast was ok, disgusting coffee in an urn, the coffee maker in the kitchen was broken so no alternative to that. Luckily there was a great cafe not far overlooking the sea where we spent most of our mornings. Pastry was fresh but they seemed to run out of those quickly. The noise at times (room walls extremely thin), banging doors at night. Basically, this is a hostel used by young people so bear that in mind. All in all, the view made up for it. Found some great restaurants, not too expensive.

We initially booked 2 nights here for a visit to Sorrento. It's a bit of a walk to the center, but it's a very nice walk. We enjoyed Sorrento so much I think we ended up staying 4 nights. Each morning, we'd go to the desk and ask for one more night. Luckily it was not busy season so we were able to do that. Our room did not have an ocean view, but it was still nice. We spent a couple nights playing card games in the common room downstairs and one night at a bar just around the corner. I wouldn't recommend eating here though.
"Budget accomodation for budget travel."
08/17/14 ripcurlgrl Bangkok
I stayed here with a friend who had a very tight budget. I have stayed in numerous hostels are various quality so i wasnt expecting much. The accomodation itself is great and in a fine location about 20mins walk from sorreno centre, the sant agnello train station is about a 10 minute walk...it seems more with a suitcase! The breakfast is fine, basic coffee, juice, pastries, the small pool is good if you fancy a dip at the end of the day. I stayed in a shared dorm room and sadly that is where the problem was. There is no air conditioning and it is very hot this time of year, there are also only very this net curtains so all the light fills the room from outdoors, the room was also full of mosquitos and I left covered in bites. The other residents of the dorm room were extremely disrespectful regarding their noise and ise of the space, they seemed fine to spread their luggage all over the room and other beds. The hostel needs some signs regarding behaviour and expectations of those staying as this was the main let down of the stay really. Fine place on a budget.

First accommodation on a trip travelling up Italy. Very picturesque surroundings. A small pool which was a nice surprise. Very near sea and brilliant views. Not to far from Saint Agnello train station. About a 30 min walk to main town Sorrento. Plenty of Restaurants on the way. Nice breakfast room which supplied fair continental Breakfast. Really friendly staff. Nice bar. Very small room, with shared Bathroom, but did the job just fine. Plenty of places to chill outside of room. Would definitely use again.
"Not what we expected"
05/28/14 Linda B Brussels
Room had a nice view but that was it. A bad smell and no curtains. It was also quite noisy at night because young people were running and screaming in the corridors until after midnight. Breakfast was poor. The lady at the reception was friendly but most of the time there was no one there. I would not recommend this place to anyone. They should call it a youth hostel instead of a hotel or B&B stayed there in may 2014
"Don't stay there! - Description online gives Wrong Impressions"
03/26/14 Fe L Minori, Italy
We were looking for a nice and decent place to stay in Sorrent. We have found this hotel on tripadvisor and it promised a very nice room with a perfect location for a very affordable price. We also found other lovely hotels at much higher rates. Due to the special rate given at this date (35€) we have decided to go for Porto Salvo. After our experience I can say the only good thing is the location. We CANNOT recommend this place at all. The pictures online give absolutely wrong impressions. Nothing was as shown in the pictures. Our room was only 8-10m² with one little window. It was not the room with two windows and wide space shown in the pictures. The whole building is quite cold. We have stayed there over March and we needed the heater, but the heater did not work. The breakfast was not needed. It is only sweet stuff and toast. In case you are used to sweet breakfast I think you can live with that. The worst thing in our opinion were the beds. These are a real impertinence. I guess they are the cheapest pallets from IKEA. The mattresses were bending all the way down to the floor. We stayed there for three nights and both of us got heavy headaches after the first night. I think it is extremely unfair to give the rooms wrong pictures. If I would have seen the real room in the first place I would have rather booked a hotel, which is 3 times more expensive. Unfortunately, during our stay there we were too tired to really complain due to our headaches. In the end I didn't want to be mean and only write this bad review. So I have asked the staff for a 20€ discount to at least compensate for something. But there was no chance to get anything for it.
"stayed here for my nieces wedding"
10/02/13 sharon o Manchester, United Kingdom
the porto salvo was lovery and clean, the cleaner was about all the time cleaning the rooms and bathroom the price we payed was good value for money.nothing was to much trouble we booked a taxi the day before the wedding to pick us up at 11 oclock on the day of the wedding and arrived on time . if you go out at night take your key with yiou as they lock the gates at ten thirty.bus stop with easy walkin distance I would definatly stay here again and I am realy fussy about were I stay but on a abudget its nice theres no safe in your room but there is one at reception wiched we used the bathroom along the corrider was clean toilet shower and wash basin .allways clean towels in the room I cant fault it
"It's good if you know what you are getting into."
First room we had was a small box, with no working AC and the window only opened half way (oh and the light switch didn't work! Had to walk over to the lamp every time) It was deadly. We then complained a couple times and finally got a second room which was a little bigger and we were much happier with. But it had two ac's and the only one that did work was too far. First night was so hot I couldn't sleep till 3. By the second night the room had cooled down thanks to the working ac and we were much much more comfortable. If we were given the second room in the first place I would have given it a higher rating. Breakfast was great, location was pretty. I think the listing says it has ocean view which is not true. But the hotel is very close to a nice view point of the coast. It was about 20 minute walk to the train which was a little drag but we dealt with it as we were prepared for that. Only reason why I didn't give it 5 for cleanliness was because the shared bathroom was nasty! The shower was ok (hot water and decent pressure but not the cleanest) the worst part was that the sink didn't work! So no one washed their hands after using the toilet! When I asked if there is a second bathroom with a working sink, receptionist said the sink does work. I said no the handle is broken. She said no the sink in your bedroom. Lol. Everytime I used the bathroom I showered after and then washed my hand again when I went back to the room. Overall for last minute booking At $45 a night plus tax, it was alright. I have definitely stayed at worse in Italy ( ones with no hot water or not as clean in the room) Advice: Book through their website it is the cheapest! Ask for room 11!!
"Don't Stay Here"
08/23/13 jdbellissimo Vancouver, Canada
Where to start? Our entire stay at this location was terrible. When we checked in we were "greeted" by a young girl. While I admit my Italian isn't amazing by any standards the girl seemed annoyed at my attempt at Italian. She seemed as though we were bothering her by checking in. We booked through hostelworld.com. We booked one room with two people, private. When we checked in we were given a shared bedroom in the hostel part of this "hotel". Luckily I had the confirmation of our reservation. The girl seemed to be doubly annoyed that she had to show us another room. The girl did not tell us any information - what time breakfast is, if there was internet, if we could bring food into the hostel, etc. We were showed another room where two cots were pushed together to create a double bed. The cots were extremely uncomfortable. You can feel every wire through the thin mattress. We found hairs in our bed which could not belong to us because the hair was long and our hair was short. The room that was showed on hostelworld.com was a spacious room. The room that we were given, however, could barely fit both of us and our suitcases. We would have to stand up one at a time to get ready. The rooms were very dusty. The bathroom was listed as a shared bathroom on the website. I have stayed at other hostels and B&Bs with shared bathrooms however there was never any problems with a shared bathroom. At Porto Salvo there is one bathroom for a long hallway of rooms. There were problems with getting into the bathroom because of ques. The bathroom was always dirty. The shower was always blocked up and it turned into a bathtub whenever I tried to shower. There were never any mats for the shower and so the bathroom floor was frequently wet. The service at the hostel was terrible and confusing at best. The breakfast, which we ended up finding out what time it was at, was not very good. There seemed to be a divide between those who can speak Italian and those who couldn't. The food which was offered for breakfast included: tea that tasted like dirty water, croissants, bread (if you're lucky), juice, something in a slushy machine that we could never figure out what it was, nutella, and melba toast for the nutella. There seemed to be some people in the breakfast place who were fluent in Italian and they had other breakfast options. They had items such as yogurt and espresso. The physical location of the hostel was 30-40 minute walk to Sorrento. The website advertises a 15-20 minute walk into Sorrento and this is incorrect. We were never shown a map to get into town so it took us a day or two to find the fastest walk into town which was still around 30-40 minute walk. When we were leaving Porto Salvo we had a dispute about the bill. When we booked the advertisement showed that the tax was included in the price of our stay. Porto Salvo did not honor this and we were told that the tax which was mentioned was the "reservation tax". I honestly do not believe that this is such as thing as a reservation tax. We ended up paying the extra city tax. I noticed a poster below that descried how they researched the city tax and it is supposed to be 1-2 euro per night and we were charged more than that. All-in-all I would never return to this place.
