Villa Adriana is one of two places I've stayed in Sorrento-- and I'll likely never stay elsewhere. Cute, charming, Italian, Villa Adriana has it all. Run by husband-and-wife team Andrea (a vivacious and kind Aussie) and Valerio (a local Italian), this Villa has been in Valerio's family for generations. Worry not, it's been tastefully and appropriately updated; it's modern, but retains so much of its old-world charm.
I spent 4 days here last time I was in Sorrento. The rooms are clean and comfortable (with nice, spacious bathrooms) and mine had a great view of within-walking-distance main-street Sorrento.
Since you're staying here, I have to recommend taking advantage of the cooking lessons they offer. It's a bit pricey, but Valerio and Andrea make cooking fun.
One last note about service: Andrea and Valerio went above and beyond the call of duty to ferry a friend of mine off to the hospital after something of a mishap. Everything was fine, but being in a foreign country, without knowledge of how local hospitals work, and not having vocabulary to explain what happened in Italian can be scary. Andrea immediately brought her car around, drove us to the nearby hospital, and calmly made sure everything was taken care of. These guys are great, seriously.
