Staying in Sorrento - good choice at high prices
Sorrento is the "Italian dream" par excellence for many travellers due to its exceptional geographical position above steep cliffs, its pleasant climate, its unique sunsets and its proximity to Ischia and Capri, and is therefore an international tourist magnet. This is noticeable both in the variety of offers and in the price level of the accommodation on offer. Numerous 5-star hotels compete for guests as well as small guesthouses, bed-and-breakfasts and boutique accommodation without star classification. Nevertheless, almost all of them are expensive. To put it bluntly, Sorrento has the largest selection of accommodation beyond the 200-euro-per-night limit.
We were lucky and got hold of a very chic and reasonably affordable room at Sorrento Flats at short notice (Sorrento Flats). As a rule, however, you have to dig deep into your pocket in Sorrento or make concessions in terms of quality or proximity to the centre. Anyone who goes searching on booking.com, should therefore, in our experience, not be based on stars but only on the rating result (e.g. 8 and better) and the price.
