Cheap Sorrento hotels are what many travelers have in mind when planning a visit to Italy's beautiful Campania region. Sorrento can make a good regional base, and while the town's hotels are relatively expensive on the whole, there are some cost-effective options for the budget-conscious. If budget travelers can't find the right fit in Sorrento, nearby Castellammare di Stabia offers some of the most affordable hotels in the area.
Among the cheap Sorrento hotel s that travelers might add to their lists is the Hotel Desiree. Found at Via Capo, 31, this 3 star hotel offers a great seaside location and is only about a ten-minute walk from the heart of town. The train station is approximately a twenty minute trip by foot. When guests aren't spending time in town or taking trains to other regional destinations such as Pompeii, they can swim or sunbathe at the hotel's small, sandy beach. Spending time at the bar or dining at the restaurant are other options for things to do at the Hotel Desiree, and amenities such as Internet access and flat-screen TVs help to fill down time in the guest units. As is true at many Sorrento hotels, the staff at the Hotel Desiree speak English can help guests arrange fun area excursions.
Another Sorrento hotel that caters to the budget traveler is the Hotel Tourist (pictured). Found closer to the heart of town, this hotel also has a 3 star rating, so guests can expect to enjoy a considerable amount of comfort while not going overboard in the price department. The 40 rooms, while not overflowing in amenities, are tasteful and clean. As for the facilities, they include an outdoor pool, a restaurant, and a sixth-floor solarium that provides excellent views. You can find cheaper accommodations in Sorrento, though it can be worth it to spend a little extra to stay at Hotel Tourist. The location is fantastic, and so is the overall value. The address for those who may be wondering is Corso Italia, 35.
There are several Sorrento hotels that fall into the 3 star category, so travelers shouldn't despair if the hotel Desiree or the Hotel Tourist are already booked. They might also keep the Hotel Nice on their radars. This place calls itself an upgraded hostel, and that appears to be a fine label. The 29 rooms, while relatively simple, are clean and tasteful with some amenities. Standard in-room amenities include satellite TV, a hair dryer, air conditioning, a direct dial telephone, and a safety box for storing valuables in while you're out. The low rates at the Hotel Nice Sorrento include a continental breakfast, and concierge-style service is available to help guests arrange all kinds of things to do, such as fun Sorrento tours. Corso Italia, 257 is the Hotel Nice address, so an excellent location is also part of the deal.
The Sorrento hostels are certainly the cheapest of the cheap accommodations, and there is at least one other "deluxe" version that rivals the Hotel Nice Sorrento. It is known as the Ulisse Deluxe Hostel. It should be noted, however, that many of the more expensive Sorrento hotels offer special lodging packages and discounts from time to time. As such, anyone who is interested in Sorrento hotel deals can keep an eye out for such offers. There is a lot of competition between the area hotels in general, so even last-minute lodging deals are relatively easy to come by.
