staying in sorrento allowed us to take the train for day trips to Pompeii and Herculaneum and take the ferry to Capri and Positano. so, very convenient. also, we were able to cook some meals at the house and go down to the bakery around the corner to get fresh pastries for breakfast. very spacious bedrooms. No living room. Very convenient with kids to be able to do laundry. Clean and well stocked. Friendly staff, would recommend it.
