We loved our stay The hosts made us feel welcomed and treated us like family. We would recommend to anyone who wanted a beautiful, friendly, and personal experience in Sorrento
Lovely flat,good location, beautiful balcony and friendly sister!!!
We had been staying in a Sorrento apartment and wanted to extend our vacation for another day. La Culla was easy to book and we found the room & bathroom large, basic, clean and comfortable. Similar to other posters' comments, we agree that the views of the bay and Sorrento from the main balcony are spectacular and it felts like an adventure to be staying in a place with a such a long history. Its is a long walk or 5 minute bus ride to train station or to the main tourist area but once you figure out the bus schedule, its a breeze.. There is a long windy driveway up to the hotel or you can walk up a long flight of stairs which at first caused me a little worry (our taxi wouldn't take us up). However, once we arrived and the staff warmly greeted us, we found the hotel and the whole experience lovely. Breakfast is basic but it included a variety of fresh fruit and coffee so I was satisfied. No air conditioning but the fan kept the room at the right temperature. It took us a little bit to understand how the hotel worked. For example, you have to press a button to enter if the front door is closed. For the money, this place can't be beat!!
This is the most outstanding place: this convent used to be a palazzo of the nobles, way back, but today one can stay in this place at modest rates. It has a commanding location, with a most spectacular view of the Mediterranean sea, and Napoli and Mount Vesivius in the distance. . We will never forget the view of the sunset from the big terrace. We could see the sea from inside our room. The room was impeccably clean; the nuns most friendly. Great hostesses. I recommend this place very highly, and if I come back to Sorrento, I will be there again.
My friend and I traveled to Sorrento in a very spur-of-the-moment way, and La Culla responded within the same day to accommodate us for almost a week. We didn't know what to expect and were SO pleasantly surprised. The house is gorgeous with incredible views, the sisters are very friendly and welcoming, and the location is convenient and quiet. We didn't want to leave! Truly a unique experience.
We had a great experience at La Culla. The sisters were very accomodating and the convent is beautiful. We especially enjoyed the huge terrace with ocean and city views.
The internet worked fine and room was clean. There wasn't any bar soap so bring your own for showers.
When you exit the train station you take a right at the first street and walk for about 15 minutes and you will arrive at La Culla. To get to town you just backtrack and go just past the train station. While it's not located in the middle of Sorrento the walk isn't bad and it's good to burn off some of that pasta. Be aware that taxi's are super expensive in the area and will cost about 18 euros for the short trip between the train station and La Culla.
