We absolutely adored our Villa Elisa apartment.
“Enjoyed our Stay at Villa Elisa” We stayed in the upper apartment at the Villa Elisa in October 2015. Villa Elisa is centrally located in Sorrento - walking distance to many restaurants, shops, and things to do. The room was very comfortable and had a great view of the piazza. The piazza could get busy at night, but the noise didn't bother us as the bedroom was not on the street side. Antonio was a huge help setting up transportation for us, and Mario gave us plenty of good advice on things to do and see locally. The room had a hair dryer. However, the internet was spotty.
“Posto fantastico” Il residence e' bello e posizionato in centro a sorrento comodo come punto di partenza per visitare i meravigliosi posti che offre la costiera.L'appartamento e' ospitale,grande e pulito!!!I proprietari sono persone solari, fantastiche e corrette.Consiglio residence Villa Elisa a tutti coloro che vogliono fare una vacanza a Sorrento!!!
“NICE” The Villa Elisa is centrally positioned in Piazza Sante Antonino, close to the main square of Sorrento, Piazza Tasso. Self catering establishment with 5 rooms, all with cooking facilities, 4 of the rooms are downstairs and have access to outside courtyard wherever tables and chairs are provided to enable you to eat outside and enjoy the sunshine. The other apartment is upstairs next to the family apartment and comes with own outside space. A cleaner comes in every day and entrance to the apartments is by way of a locked gateway. There is also a sun terrace which is available to all residents, and whilst small provides beautiful views ideal for the usual photo opportunities, as well as sunbathing. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and would like to thank Pinella and Mario, and their son Antonio who speaks excellent english and who is happy to provide any assistance or advice you may require during your stay.
“Perfect Location, Charm and Price”First off this is not a hotel, it is your own little apartment off the beautiful Plaza San Antonio right in the center of everything. Our particular little apartment where we spent 3 nights, had a queen bed, a full size kitchen and 2 bathrooms. Imagine!!!Staying here almost makes you feel like a local!!!!. We walked out of our locked patio gate onto the plaza with restaurants all around and wonderful shopping. The marina where we caught the ferry to Capri was a down hill walk. We walked all over town, spent time in cafes on the main square watching the town folk participate in the nightly passaggiata and walked to the train station from our hotel to catch the train to our next stop Florence.For me, staying in a place like this makes me feel less like a tourist and more like a traveler. If we ever go back to Sorrento we will stay here again. Much thanks to Mario and Antonio.
“Perfect accommodation!” When booking a holiday I spend an awful lot of time trawling through Tripadvisor reading hundreds of reviews for accommodation. I decided on Villa Elisa and I am so pleased I did!! The location was absolutely perfect! Situated in a pretty square, a 30 second walk to Piazzo Tasso and a 5 minute walk to the Marina where we took the ferry to Ischia and Capri.We had a ground floor apartment that opened onto a communal terrace. I would also say this was the cleanest accommodation I have stayed in, completely spotless! The room was cleaned every day. There was plenty of clean towels and a kitchenette so we could prepare our packed lunch for the day. Prior to arriving, Antonio was very helpful with booking airport transfers and restaurant reservations. I would definitely recommend staying at Villa Elisa, especially as the cost was half the price of a hotel and in a better location. Make sure you check out the roof terrace, available for all guests, it has two sun loungers and a table and chair, so nice to relax whilst catching the afternoon sun!
“Brilliant location with lovely Italian charm!!” Having done a lot of research for where to stay on our week long trip to Sorrento, me and my partner decided to stay at Villa Elisa based on the good reviews we had read mainly on TA.We knew it was relatively cheap which caught our interest but also made us a bit cautious at first. We eventually decided decided that it would be nice to have the option of making our own lunches to take on day trips etc if needed and so took the 'risk'.This initial caution was immediately put to rest when, upon our arrival, we walked straight into the lovely communal garden terrace and were shown to our very clean room. (Which was kept spotless on a daily basis by the cleaner).Not only that, the location is superb and opens right onto the classy Piazza Sant'Antonino from which all of the main attractions are no more than a 5 minute walk. You have a family ran coffee shop right next door for getting various snacks if needed etc where you can also sit outside and watch the world go by.Finally a special mention to Antonio and his father, Mario, who were both always on hand to help with things like arranging a taxi back to the airport and letting it be known that we were to use the whole place as if it were our own house.Overall, very clean rooms combined with authentic Italian decor and a lovely garden patio. You even have the use of an upstairs sun terrace if needed and the hosts are very welcoming/accommodating!
“Superb Lodging Option” We loved our little apartment with kitchenette on the ground floor just off the beautiful Plaza Antonino, close to everything. We are seniors and appreciated the convenience the location offers for close walks to the train and everywhere. Our room was just off the patio, with no windows, but had a king-size bed and very spacious. We cooked some meals in and ate at the nearby restaurants, especially enjoying the calamari at L'Abate, only two doors away. There is a delightful grocery with lots of antipastos and fresh produce only 5 minutes' walk. We stayed 6 nights, and wished we had planned to stay longer. We loved taking 6 hours to explore Pompeii (afternoons are less crowded and the ruins stay open until 7:30 when you will have it almost by yourself) and 3 hours in Herculaneum (easy train rides away). Naples Archaeology Museum complements the visits to the ruins by letting you see all the beautiful art and mosaics and frescoes taken from the ruins. We also enjoyed a day on the bus ride to the Amalfi coast (spend your time in charming Positano). We bought the Campania ArteCard where the first two ruins are free and the rest plus the museums are discounted ($34 for a 3 day pass), plus all trains and buses are free. We decided to go to Ischia instead of Capri, and enjoyed the quieter atmosphere of a beautiful island. The boat goes there once a day from Sorrento. You cannot make a mistake staying at this lovely apartment with the gracious owners who live onsite and are always available to help, and Antonio, their son who does a great job communicating by email and answering any questions. Wifi in the room never failed.Room Tip: Tell Antonio what you need and he will find the perfect room. Our was a delight (on the ground floo...
“Splendido soggiorno a Sorrento!” Abbiamo trascorso un piacevolissimo weekend a Sorrento in questa Guest House! Abbiamo soggiornato nelle stanze Dalia e Azalea (una tre posti letto, l'altra due posti letto). Entrambe molto funzionali, pulite e accoglienti! Nel cortile interno si respira un'aria tipicamente sorrentina, per gli arredi e per la vegetazione. I proprietari sono molto gentili e disponibili! Il punto di forza di Villa Elisa è sicuramente anche l'ottima posizione, nel pieno centro di Sorrento!!
“Perfect Sorrento apartment!” My wife and I stayed here for five nights in October 2014 as we used Sorrento as a base for exploring the area. Very simply put - this was one of the best hotel choices we've ever made.Room: We booked one of the ground floor apartments that open on to the common terrace (a perfect spot for an evening bottle of wine under the stars). The room was comfortable and large with a queen sized bed, relatively well equipped kitchen (utensils, plates/glassware, stove, kettle, fridge) and a well appointed bathroom. We had ample space to spread out and unpack for our five night stay. The room was spotless and cleaned each day. Wifi was reasonable - a few times we had to step outside to get a better signal. Although you are very near the centre of Sorrento, there was very little noise in the evenings.Location: In a word: perfect. The apartment was just off one of the main squares in Sorrento and about a ten minute walk to the train/bus station, a five minute walk to a grocery store, a five minute walk to the waterfront and was surrounded by cafes and restaurants. It was very easy for us to use as a base for exploring Pompeii, the Amalfi Coast and CapriService: This is a family run operation and we were warmly welcomed by the owner's father when we arrived. He was charming and humourous. On the last day when we were settling our bill, I had a nice chat with the owner's mother in my limited Italian and her limited English. They all take great pride in this property and it shows. It was super easy to book and email communications pre arrival were all answered very quickly.This area of Italy can be pricey, but this place is an outstanding value. Of the hotels we stayed at on our two week trip, this was the least expensive and by far our favourite. If I ever get back to this area, I wouldn't even look for another place to stay - it would be here at the Villa Elisa.
“Best place in Sorrento!!!” We recently stayed here for accommodation for us and our family. It is perfectly located if you are getting married at Cloisters as it is literally around the corner. The room we were given had its own terrace upstairs and we only had to knock on the door of Antonios mum who was happy to help with any request. We were joined a few days later by more family however some of the days we had them staying were wrong. However Antonio sorted this out for us and made a potentially stressful time into a relaxing one and allowed us to concentrate on the wedding. This place is number one on trip advisor and is easy to see why. It's centrally located, accommodation is beautiful yet very clean. The owners are a mum and son and make the best stay possible. When we come back to Sorrento we will stay again here if we can get in of course as this is going to get even more popular. Don't hesitate trust me book it you won't regret it!! Andy & Stacey
“Excellent location” Stayed in Sorrento for 2 nights at B & B Elissa. Such a great location in the centre, we parked the car and walked everywhere. You can take a boat to Capri and Anacapri. Host, Antonio who speaks very well English and his mother although she speaks only Italian, were EXCELLENT hosts and made us feel very welcome. Very cozy apartment with kitchen, living room, nice bedroom with private bathroom with shower lots of windows you could open for fresh air. Wifi accessible and free. Nice terrace area just to ourselves so relaxing!!! Overall, such a pleasant stay and good advice from Antonio!Would go back !!!!Lorraine and Phil - September 2014
“Sorrento's best little secret” This was my 4th time staying in Sorrento, and my first at Villa Elisa. Antonio and his parents are great hosts. The apartment was was very clean, convenient,and a great value. We are planning to return next year for several weeks.The apartments are centrally located but yet private for relaxing. An extra plus for us was being next to the Foreigners club. We are dancers and like to end the day with any evening of dancing.
“Perfect base to explore” My fiance and I stayed here in Sept/Oct 2013 for a week and can recommend it as a good base to explore Sorrento and the surrounding areas. The room was a perfect size for the two of us and we enjoyed the use of the courtyard to eat and relax. The room was cleaned every day by the cleaner, and although her English is poor she is very friendly and easy to work out what she is saying. Villa Elisa is in a perfect spot in a plaza just off the main square in Sorrento and is excellent value for money.When visiting the Amalfi coast, get the bus to Amalfi, explore the church and then get back on the bus to Positano. There isn't much (apart from the church) in Amalfi but Positano is beautiful. Spend all your time there. Ensure to go to the top of Vesuvius (cheap tickets can be bought from the train station). Capri is a beautiful island too, be sure to get there early and walk to the top (it's a long and steep walk but worth it for the views). You can also get a boat trip around the island which is worth it (note they only take cash). We didn't go into the lagoon as don't feel we lost out, but def worth the boat trip. Pompeii is worth a visit, but also take the time to visit Herculaneum (Ercolano), it's smaller than Pompeii but more detail as it was affected differently during the eruption.
