I booked this thru 'Home Away' and the ad reads much like this one, and the pictures are the same, I was under the impression that we would be arriving to an apartment building and meeting a property manager that would let us in to the place. Upon arriving I found that the apartment is actually a flat at Artis Domus, a hotel. Unexpected as I was under a different impression. I was told to park at the lot at the end of the street for 90 Euros for 6 nights, not bad considering the prices of other lots in town, however, the ad I had read made mention of 'Parking Available', not 'Parking can be purchased' - so that was unexpected too.
The pictures included in the ad are slightly deceiving, as they encompass multiple rooms, as well as the common areas around hotel. Our balcony is not like the one shown, ours faced an old church (where we witnessed an Italian wedding!) and was quite shady. I actually loved our balcony more than the one depicted, however from ours we had no ocean view as the ad seems to imply. Our room, la percola, had no couch and one sink in the bathroom.
In this add it mentions "one of 5 holiday apartments", what isn't stated is that it will randomly be selected from those 5 according to availability. This is by no means meant to be negative, only something to consider when booking. I would definitely recommend the property to stay.
The features that we really liked about the place:
- Restaurant on site featuring drinks cocktails pizza and full breakfast.
- Location: Right at the end of the shopping section, very close to where tours pickup guests, within walking distance of everything you'd want to do in Sorrento, close enough to two harbors for the ferry, close to the train/bus station for ways to everywhere on the peninsula and beyond.
- The staff was excellent. Very helpful and friendly. Since this is a hotel and not just an apartment you'll also get daily housekeeping.
-Artis Domus is a great relaxing park-like compound that is highly relaxing.
- Decently priced, especially for the fantastic location
