We stayed 2 nights here. It was very nice to find a place to accommodate 5 people in a room. We took a taxi from the train station when we arrived. The distance was walkable but better to get a taxi if you are carrying luggage, in my opinion.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Once I found Domus, I was relieved...it can be difficult to find, because it is not close to the train station. I stopped by a local food store, and the owner there told me how to find it. Also, it is not presently a "hostel". The nun who speaks English, Sister Clara, explained that it once was a "hostel", and is now a "pensione" managed by missionary […] nuns. Once you check in, walk out the back door, and gaze at Mount Vesuvius, which is across the bay, and peer down into the gorgeous water more than a hundred feet below...truly majestic and breath taking....It is quiet and peaceful...and a very short train ride to beautiful Sorrento, which should not be missed...actually ANY town on the Amalfi Coast is nothing short of spectacular !!!

"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.

"Quiet and Peacefull place"
07/03/14 Karine L Paris, France
I stayed 3 nights in this "hotel". Hosts are sisters, really nice. It was hard to find it as I forgot the map and my GPS didn't work. Few people knew this place. I had my own room with single bed (mattress need to be changed), room was quiet big, and my own bathroom. Room was really quiet as it was on the patio. Breakfast was plenty enough for me (this is not a buffet: crackers, bread, pastry, cornflakes; drinks; no fruit). Families, couples and solo were there. Some rules if you stay there (remember, this is a "religious place"): breakfast from 8 to 9.00am, need to come back before 11.00pm, leave the room before 9.00am, and leave the key when out. Tips: better to stop at Sant Agnello station if you come by train (10mn walking) / free beach just down the hotel (ask sisters the way). I really appreciated the quiet of the place, thank you sisters.

Very amazing place, with views to die for. The sisters were wonderful and very welcoming, nothing was ever too much trouble. Our room was basic but very clean and spacious, however a little noisy as our room faced the Main Street. Basic breakfast but if you get hungry there are plenty of cafés around. We enjoyed sitting in the garden soaking up the views and taking in the ambiance. Highly recommend.
"Domus San Vincenzo magnificent hotel"
06/17/14 Barbara K Johannesburg, South Africa
What a magnificent hotel, run by the nuns. I had quite a bit of correspondence with Sr. Clara as we had to change our bookings and then needed letters for Visa purposes and then I couldn't confirm the booking through bookings.com but Sr. Clara was so helpful and promised us that all would be well and she would give us the best rooms. When we arrived the taxi which was fairly large was not allowed to go down the narrow little road so we had to walk the last 100m or so on a very busy narrow little street. We made sure when we left that we hired a sedan sized taxi and there was no problem with being picked up right at the hotel. When we entered the hotel, Sr. Clara came to greet us and she said "You must be Barbara". How lovely to be greeted so personally. She escorted us to our room, which literally took our breath away, threw open the shutters to reveal the Bay of Naples in all its glory with Vesuvius in the background and a little harbour at the foot of the cliff, from our own personal little balcony. The hotel has the most beautiful gardens and a little private pergola where one can sit in silence and watch the tranquillity of the beautiful bay. The rooms are beautifully furnished with huge wardrobes and dressers decorated beautifully with strips of inlaid wood. The room had it's own bathroom. Breakfast was very simple, but it started our day on the right foot. There were several evenings when we had supper sitting on the balcony. There is a supermarket and several restaurants nearby and a lift going down to the beach. It is not far from the centre of Sorrento and we caught the bus which was maybe half a kilometres walk from the hotel. I would have no qualms about recommending this hotel to anyone who wants to stay near Sorrento and should I be so lucky as to return, I will definitely be returning to Domus San Vincenzo. Thank you Sr. Clara

Wow what a place to stay the most amazing views sitting in the garden or on the top deck, you were made very welcome by all the nuns, the bedroom were very clean and comfortable. The traffic was a problem with noise as we had rooms facing the street, breakfast was very basic. Fantastic location if you dont drive the station is a 10 minute walk, with trains to Sorrento or pompeii, but if you have a car you are able to park it on site.

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"
03/19/13 m0kle Sanremo, Italy
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, United Kingdom
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!
