We are planning to stay in Sorrento for 3 nights in early October. Any recommendations for mid priced rooms?
Il Nido is great and the prices are reasonable for Sorrento: http://www.ilnido.it/. Restaurant is EXCELLENT. We ate there 3 out of 5 nights of our stay. I know what you're thinking - I'm not going to eat at the hotel, I'm going to check out other places. I doubt you'll find food anywhere else as good.
I actually stayed in Sant Agnello which is the town before Sorrento and enjoyed the area. It's much quieter and has more of a residential feel than Sorrento. There's a train stop but the walk into Sorrento was only 20 minutes, which was nice after a big dinner. Just a thought.
I agree with the previous post. We stayed in San Agnello last week at the Hotel Villa Garden. It was beautiful, and we watched the dolphins jump from our window. For 1 Euro we caught the shuttle bus to the center of Sorennto when we were in the mood for crowds.
Just stayed at the Hotel Mignon (listed in Rick's book) and it was great. Close to the middle of town so no shuttle necessary - beautifully decorated in soothing pale blues and yellows - very nice gal at the desk - large room and bathroom with a balcony. We liked being in town so we could walk to the train, ferry, bus, restaurants, shop at night, etc.
We just returned from 2 weeks in Southern Italy and also stayed at Hotel Mignon. Enjoyed it very much and would recommend it. Blue tiled decor was very charming.
Hoteliers extremely friendly and helpful with dinner recommendations (and reservations) in town.
Great location for walking and sight seeing.
Hands down. Hotel Minerva, which is recommended in Rick's book. Just returned from an 8 day visit yesterday. Waking up to views of mount Vesuvius and the Bay of Naples, negates the walk required to get into town.
I have stayed a few times at a very small hotel in Sorrento . The Villa Di Sorrento. 21 rooms. Nice and clean. Very centric by the Piazza Tasso. We love it. I am planning to go back and this is where I will stay. Price includes breakfast.
I was recommended to the Sorrento Villa Garden Hotel by several people. It has great reviews on Trip Advisor and I booked it through the "In Italy" website. My family of four will be staying there at the end of August. It's worth checking out...
Our family of 4 spent four nights in Sorrento in July 2006. We stayed at Hotel Settimo Cielo (7th heaven) out on Via Capo. This was in the Rick Steves 2006 Italy book and is probably in the 2007 book. All rooms have balconies with wonderful views of Mt. Vesuvius and the Bay of Naples. There is a lovely pool clinging to the back of the hotel with views of the bay. Would stay here again for sure. Were in Sorrento when Italy won the World Cup and celebrated along with them!! Great fun!

My husband and I just returned from Sorrento and we stayed here for 90 euros/night. It is located very close to the port where you can take boats to Capri/Positano/Naples, etc. and to the center of town. The owner, Ciro, is fabulous and a wealth of info for you. He also owns a delicious restaurant named Giginio's and he gives a discount for those staying in his B&B. I highly recommend his accommodations. The restaurant is listed in Rick's book but, his B&B hasn't made it in the book,YET.
Maria--when replying to your private message regarding Hotel Settimo Cielo, the message I was sending was too long and I couldn't send it. Unfortunately, when I tried to shorten it your original message was gone. Please send me another e-mail and I will respond.
We stayed at La Tonnarella...the view was outstanding. We could see the harbor of Sorrento and all the way to Naples. check it out at www.latonnarella.it
