Lovely Hotelfrom RhonddaRebel
Lovely Hotelfrom Wirral_MerseysideVic
The hotel is lovely, very clean and the pictures in the brochures dont really do the hotel justice.
All staff were wonderful and very helpful, and the food was of good standard. The bar situated in the hotel is lovely and the 2 barmen were brilliant.
The hotel is situated on the main street from the main square, about a five minute walk. The hotel is also right by the railway station but although we were at the back of the hotel next to the railway line the noise was minimal.
If you are going to go and see pompei we would recommend to go by train, really cheap at 3 euros return and it stops right outside pompei. You can pay a guide there or get earphones (if getting earphones you need to take your passports).
The food in sorrento is lovely plently of pasta, pizza and fish dishes at reasonable prices.
Whilst we were there our friends got married in piano de sorrento which was lovely outside under a tree with lovely views of the coast.
We would highly recommend sorrento and highly recommend the Michelangelo Hotel.
t keep reservationsfrom NCK72
I am sure a lot users of this site, like myself, spend time researching possible hotels to stay in, trying to ensure they don't make a bad choice. But with the Michelangelo this counts for nothing as it seems a lottery whether they will honour their reservation. Who knows why my reservation was OK for five and a half months, then they suddenly discovered they could not take me.
Dispite taking time and care in my hotel choice, it was the Michelangelo Hotel who decided where I would stay.
Perfect hotelfrom tivocao
The room was nice and food was also splended. The pool was not very big and it closed at 7 pm.
We came by car but the hotels parking area was full, so they recommended a parkinglot 5 min. drive away for 10 euro pr. night. Very fine parking.
All in all a very recommendable hotel that I would diffently stay in again if I visit Sorrento.

Great Holidayfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Loved the hotel and discovered a super local restaurantfrom A TripAdvisor Member
The restaurant service was somewhat swift which depending on your outlook could be a good or bad thing! If you’re on half board you can choose to have lunch or a packed lunch instead of dinner which is handy if you’re heading out for dinner. Some people have commented that the roof top terrace / pool areas are on the small side but we found them perfectly acceptable and given the choice I'd choose the central location of Michelangelo over a hotel with more space further out of Sorrento town.
The find of the holiday was a restaurant recommended to us by the hotel barman - Restaurant Angelina Lauro on Piazza Angelina Lauro, just two minutes walk from the hotel serving fabulous food to locals and tourists alike. Raffaele the co-owner is expert in recommending the best local dishes such as Octopus in a rich tomato sauce, great fillet steak, spaghetti with clams and to drink pears in white wine. Go there – it’s a fabulously unpretentious locals restaurant and good value too. Tell Raffaele the Irish girl who fell of the chair sent you!
We took ferries to Capri and to Amalfi / Positano both of which were well worth doing and reasonably priced, especially the ferry to Amalfi (Tickets available from the tourist office).
Top Local Tips for Sorrento
Timing is Everything! Stay away from Sorrento in the summer; it's very hot and crowded. Also, probably best time to go woluld be in the spring, after Easter, since the weather should be pleasant, the trees and flowers will be blooming, and there won't so many children on school trips and on spring break! Lots of traffic all the time, but much worse in the summer months! I'd imagine that the early fall would be lovely as well.
The Train Having been to Sorrento on a number of occasions I have booked tours to Pompeii through my tour operator at quite an expensive price (E70 per person) and only saw the first quater of it, no ampitheatre etc.. On this trip we decided to take the train to Pompeii and Herculanium on the same day (E5 per person return!) and then only E11 entry and got to see the whole sight. If you are confident enough to take the train (and to give a firm NO to persistant beggars) then do so!
Use Public Transportation The public transportation system is economical and on time. Trains, boats and buses. Sorrento is very convenient for using as a base for visiting sites on the Amalfi Coast.
