I recently took a solo trip through Italy, which had to include a visit to the Southwest to see the Amalfi Coast. I decided to stay in the town of Sorrento, as I read it was a great central base (it is) and beautiful in its own right (it definitely is). In searching for a place, I came across Sorrento Flats, which had incredible reviews and was reasonably priced. As soon as I booked, I immediately understood why. The flat itself is great - super clean, spacious, comfortable, and in the heart of downtown, making for quick and easy access to the train station, great restaurants, the beach, and the ports. However, what truly sets this place apart from anywhere else I've ever stayed is the unbelievable hospitality of the host. Luigi, a true gem of a human being, could literally not have been more accommodating and nice. He directed me on finding the connecting train in Naples, recommended I explore Pompeii on the way, greeted me outside of the Sorrento train station and insisted on taking my luggage, provided a comprehensive list of the best restaurants and bars in town, booked my Amalfi Coast tour, helped me catch the ferry to Capri, was flexible with check-out, and came by to personally say goodbye, all while being incredibly responsive over WhatsApp at all times! You could tell that he genuinely cares for each guest and I could not have been happier with my stay. I almost booked a more expensive hotel, but I'm so glad I decided to go with Sorrento Flats. Can't wait to be back!
