"this is a church, not a hotel"
it was not clear that this was a catholic facility, not a hotel. Looked beautiful, but not comfortable with it being a church.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This is the most beautiful place to stay. the views were absolutely spectacular as this convent is on a cliff edge easily accessible by road, every morning I could take my coffee out to one of the the terraces and enjoy the spectacular views,the convent itself is beautiful and also a great place that cater for families so you don't need to worry about […] being quiet, the nuns are lovely and and keep to themselves and their duties, its a short train ride (1 stop) or 25 minute walk to Sorrento and I much preferred to stay here, a 5 minute walk to Piano with lovely restaurants and views, if youre a party animal maybe Sorrento is for you as there is a 11.30 pm curfew but if you let the nuns know you will be late they are pretty good about it, great place for families as they also provide gated parking, also wifi at 2 euros for1 hour, cash only no credit card facilities which was not a problem for me, I would come back and stay here in a heart beat, there was nothing I could fault about this place or its amazing location.

"Value for money"
Fantastisk udsigt til Napoli Bugten og til Vesuvio. Charmerende ao bo på et kloster med rigtige nonner, der er søde og imødekommende. Søster Clara taler perfekt engelsk. Dejligt med parkering i beskyttet gård. Meget billigt - masser af værdi for pengene, men lidt spartansk på den gode måde. Morgenmad var inkluderet i prisen, og var også spartansk, men […] kaffen fremragende. Bruser delvis defekt. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Et spesielt sted, en spesiell atmosfære, og en fantastisk utsikt over Napolibukta - stedet drives av nonner som har sine gjøremål i kombinasjon med å drive gjestehuset. Romslige rom og rolige omgivelser. Litt vanskelig å finne pga trange, enveiskjørte veier, ta med GPS.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Très bon emplacement ,un peu difficile à trouver malgré le GPS,mais cadre magnifique,très calme,les chambres sont très correctes et grandes.La proximité de la gare est apréciable pour les déplacementsGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Hermosa vistas, bellos jardines, muy limpio"
Excelente para decansar. No es recomendable para personas que gustan de la vida social nocturna ya que requieren que se este en el hotel no mas tardar de las 11:30pm. El hotel queda en un area de trafico vehicular algo peligrosa para peatones. A 10 minutos caminando del tren y de los buses. Las monjas que lo administran fueron muy amigables y servi […] ciales.

This was a lovely place to stay. The location was perfect and the views amazing !!! Took my breakfast outside to the terrace every morning to take in the views. The nuns were wonderful and was made feel very welcome. The room was lovely with its own on suite and a very comfortable bed and very, very clean, the atmosphere was very peaceful and serene and the beautiful furnishings everywhere and a beautiful building to wander around and explore and I also had a lovely view from my room. The sisters were fantastic , very welcoming and helpful and I would have extended my stay there if it were not for having to return to work . I can highly recommend Domus San Vincenzo !
"Very peaceful and stunning views!"
08/22/13 Mike F Portsmouth, United Kingdom
Peaceful. Basic but wonderful location and people. The nuns cannot do enough for you. Yes, breakfast is simple (cereal, bread and jam, cake/croissant, tea/coffee), but who needs more? The views are stunning. The rooms are absolutely fine for what is required. Very spacious and clean. It would be an absolute bonus if you are religious as you can partake of the nuns activities, but if, like us, you are not, then it doesn't affect any part of the holiday. We were genuinely sad to leave.
"Nice and quiet!"
07/01/13 Kosmoskatten Stockholm, Sweden
We spent a very good time in this house. It's clean and tidy and the nuns are really nice. There is a fantastic view from the garden terrace where there also grows grapes and kiwi! The room was spacious with charming old furniture and the breakfast just as i like it with coffee, juice and bread. Close to the house there is an elevator to take you easily down to the nearby beach. I can warmly recomend a stay!
"Nice and quiet place"

Sorrento area being quite noisy, this was a quiet place. Extremely narrow road if you come with a car, a bit hard to navigate it to the closed port. Sisters very friendly, also with the kids. Nice room, a bit tripped breakfast, but good service.
"You get what you pay for and a prayer thrown in"
12/27/12 Hazzer848 Swindon
Here in September initially for 2 nights it was so convenient an I should add peaceful we extended for another two. Run by Nuns it is simple, clean, peaceful and the Nuns put in a prayer for on top of that. I had a simple single room on the third floor, it was simple maybe even sparse but it was clean and had a shower,toilet and plenty of room for clothes (not that I had that many with me). Breakfast was again simple but enough to start the day well. On the third floor I also had access to an extensive sun terrace with loungers and tables. My mate also had a similar room tucked away in a quite spot on the ground for. Out side we had a lovely little garden area with a little walk down to the end of the cliff upon which the Domus sits, on our last day, a chill out day, we picked up some bread, cheese, proscuitto, fruit and wine and ate on the terrace overlooking the bay, peaceful bordering on idyllic. If you want a good base at a good price to explore the joys of the Amalfi coast you could do much worse - try the web site and contact the nuns direct. Yes it's a little bit of a walk to the Circumvesuviana station in St Agnello but we enjoyed it and having eaten and drunk well in the evening it wasn't onerous. There is an 11 o'clock closed door policy but you can ring to get in later if you must, we didn't find it an issue we were up early and walking lots so happy to get back to our rooms and a good nights sleep. It was not exactly a pleasure but it was amazing to be woken each morning by a dysfunctional Italian Cockerel that could only manage a Cock a Doo with no doodle, however it did manage to wake up all the local mutts to join its early morning serenade. Off you want the Ritz go there if you want quiet convenient and cheap for a base to trek from you won't find much better.
"Functional and Tranquil"
11/28/12 RupertRain Prince Rupert, Canada
After a harrowing drive through town to get here we were wonderfully surprised with what awaited us. A peaceful gated location with unhampered views of the ocean. The sisters were so patient with us minimal Italian speakers! The room we were in (there were four of us) was very large and comfortable. We were on the street side but in the evening we didn't notice much noise. The breakfast was just enough to get you out the door in search of something a little more fulfilling, but considering the price we paid, we weren't expecting a lavish spread. We would definately stay here again!
"Friendly and peaceful"
10/27/12 Malcolm T Canterbury, United Kingdom
Our family had a wonderful stay with the Sisters. Our rooms were comfortable, with good mattresses and individual furniture (not standard Ikea!!). Whilst some rooms are away from the roadside of the building, ours were very close so there was some noise from the street. The rooms are not air conditioned but did have effective, freestanding fans. The terrace was much appreciated also, as a place to sit and relax with stunning view over the bay to Vesuvius. We would most certainly hope to return.
"Low budget, basic but ideal accommodation if exploring"
09/29/12 Andrew S Swindon, United Kingdom
The Domus San Vincenzo is a low budget no frills option. The rooms offer low spec (minimal luxuries) but are very clean and functional. Towels and bedding is changed every three days. There are many positives; free Wi-Fi (the nuns allow for you to make a donation), beautiful surroundings/garden and terrace, peaceful, access to a superb beach/pier area for swimming/sunbathing (there is a lift to the beach just 2 mins walk away) access to Sorrento/Napoli can be reached via the Circumvisuviana metro (just a few €'s), with just a few negatives; minimal breakfast choice (we just added our own fresh fruit to what was offered), credit card machine never seems to be functioning - cash is king!!! When booking ask for the rooms with a sea view.
"Interesting, Convenient and Peaceful"
05/22/12 Dorset_On_Holiday Wimborne, United Kingdom
It is a 15 minute, fairly level, walk from the train station to the convent and, yes, for the last 200 yards there is no pavement. Don't worry - it is nothing compared to walking around Naples itself or most of the other places where the traffic is chaotic! Just think of it as a good preparation for what is to come. Trains are easy to get to Sorrento (one stop) or Naples (about an hour) and the various tourist sites on the way; Pompeii, Herculaneum and others. The place is large, the rooms are large, the views are the best (expect to pay many, many times more for similar views in a Hotel on this coast) and the nuns are very helpful (there only seem to be about 6 living there). Yes, only one speaks English so a bit of Italian will help. We don't speak Italian at all but still got by. Breakfast is very basic - but after a day you get to used to it - and for the price I do not think you can complain. If you are English - take your own tea bags (you will find it hard to get any decent tea anywhere on the Naples coast unless you bring your own bags. If you like "infusions" then you will be fine.). From Naples.airport it is easy to get the "Cerruti" bus to just outside the train station at Sant Angello - this is definitely better than going via Naples. Cost is 10 euro a head and the trip gives some fantastic views of the coastline. Leaves every 90 minutes throughout the day. This place is definitely recommended; a little quirky but that only makes it more interesting and something special to talk about when you get home. Negatives: no hair dryers or tea/coffee making in rooms. So take a hair dryer. And even a portable kettle if you have one. There are vending machines on the premises to get cold drinks and hot drinks though - at a low price. If you buy some food at the local shops and bring it back they will supply plates and cutlery - sit out on the terrace and enjoy the evening sun and the amazing views across the harbour and the bay. We spoke to other guests and some had been a little hesitant to book because of the "religious" theme. It is nothing to worry about; the hosts are Nuns but they do not expect you to be! It is just a quiet, spacious, relaxing place. RECOMMENDED.
"Not for everyone"
05/10/12 ruchi_chopra_foodie Mumbai (Bombay), India
Firstly... to get to this hotel, you need to get off at a train station called sant agnelo.. and mind you.. OFTEN there are no taxi.. so with all your luggage, you take a 2 km walk to this hotel. If there are taxis, they wont take you to such a close location. Secondly, its not a hotel. its clean-it-your-self kind of a place. I had requested for a sea view, which is the view that is available in the pictures- i didnt get my room on the first night and had to sleep in a room WITHOUT AC'S that was facing the main highway.. so all night with the window open for cooling, we heard all kinds of sounds of traffic. No doubt the nuns are adorable and sweet.. but it doesnt help when you hardly know english. What i am trying to say is that the place is different.. not a hotel.. so be prepared to live in basic rooms with small baby sized bathrooms. I personally didnt want something like this, and we had to decide to move out.. we left for amalfi coast and booked a hotel there instead! Breakfast wasnt a breakfast if you are an eater, forget being a good eater.. also, not to miss the 11pm deadline to come back to the hotel!
