We loved staying here. We had an amazing view of the Bay of Naples, and we loved the beautiful room and surroundings. We also enjoyed the kindness and serenity of the sisters. There was a walk from the San Agnello train station, but we didn't mind that. We also found it just fine to have to leave by 9ish in the mornings.

Very hard to find and no where near Sorrento. We had to drive everywhere and there really is very little parking in Sorrento. You need a very detailed map on your site. The nuns couldn't be nicer but had very little knowledge of the area. They only accept cash which we were not prepared for, and had to get to a cash machine to check out.

Run by nuns, I would not call this luxurious, but it is breathtaking. The entrance is spectacular with it's vaulted ceilings and terrazzo floors. The rooms are simple but clean. The only drawback was the lack of A/C in our room where the only window opened onto a busy street. We were kept awake by the cars, barking dogs, and a rooster that started crowing at 3:30 in the morning. Breakfast was good, served by nuns, and the rooftop patio served as our dining room for a grocery store supper. The view from it was unrivaled. Overall I think this was a positive experience that I would return to.

This hotel was superb. I went on holiday with my partner, travelling a couple of locations in Italy. We wanted to stay in an area which would not be as touristy as Sorrento and based on a recommendation from a friend went for Sant' Agnello. The nuns at the hotel are all very lovely and welcoming. The rooms are extremely spacious and cleaned daily. The breakfasts were similar to others we experienced throughout our stay in Italy, consisting of cereal, juices, tea or coffee along with bread rolls and a snack such as a croissant or cake. The hotel was located very close to Piano di Sorrento where it is a short walk down the hill to the beach. It is also a 15/20 minute walk to the train station where Sorrento is easily reachable. There are not as many restaurants locally as we had anticipated. One in particular was the worst experience of eating out we have ever had (La Ripetta ristorante) so we would recommend walking into Sant'Agnello town and going to Da Peppino. Here the food was lovely, service was fantastic and prices were reasonable. Just be aware the some of the rooms are close to the road. Our room for example was near to a busy corner where cars had to toot their horns to warn drivers from the other direction that they were approaching the corner. At night most tended to just flash their lights but others were not so considerate. Having said this, that is no reflection on the hotel or fault of theirs. We were really impressed with our stay here and would highly recommend to others looking for places around Sant'Agnello and Sorrento.

The Domus San Vincenzo is an oasis of calm and an excellent retreat from the business of Sorrento. One of the nuns speaks good English which is great when you have no Italian! It does lie on a narrow busy street which requires care. The buses and train are about 10 mins walk away as is a very nice local restaurant.The breakfasts are however a little basic.

We could enjoy a wonderful panoramic sea view from the small garden and the roof of hotel. The staff (nuns) were very friendly and warm-hearted. But the stay was not relaxing but really exhausting. We stayed for 3 nights in this hotel. The room we stayed in was toward road side and so noisy. We could not sleep well. The noise of motorcycles and cars woke us so many times. If we closed the window, the room was so hot. There is no fan or air conditioner in the room. The hotel receives only cash. Don’t go to this hotel during hot summer days.

A negative point was we were told when we arrived that the card machine wasn't working so we had to get cash out to pay for the 5 nights (3 rooms) we were there so it meant a trip to the cashpoint everyday and keeping the money safe. The breakfasts were adequate but a little meagre ( one bread roll each and a piece of cake . No fruit was available. The vending machine which sold bottles of water and crisps and chocolate bars wasn't working during our stay.

Staying at this kind of a B&B was a new experience and we were happy with the stay. we were warmly welcomed and taken care of. Got practical tips e.g. on transportation. Got along with our English and the very little Italian we speak. A lovely; peaceful place - a paradise of you like. A pity that the weather was not the warmest.

The quality of the accommodation is definitely excellent. It is amazing in this day to find a place of such seclusion with stunning views of the coastline. The only drawback is the last short portion of the road to the Domus. The road has no walkway and one must walk in the roadway, which is narrow and confined by high cement walls on either side. It would not be a good choice for individuals who fear walking in these situations. A couple of good restaurants are within a short walking distance of the Domus.

This was well-situated accommodation if you are not going to stay in Sorrento centre. it is a bit tricky walking on the paths to and from the B&B but as a single adult it wasn't a problem. You need to get the train into Sorrento but its only 1 stop. The beaches at Meta are good and you can walk it if you are that way inclinded. I didn't like having to ring the door bell to get in as you feel you are bothering the sisters and the breakfast does lack imagination. Generally a good B&B though.

It is not hotel, but church property-guest house. Easy to find from StAgnello station(with map), on street without pedestrian area, you will need be very carefull. GH situated on rock and view are breathtaking, wonderful terase and garden. My single room was very uncomfortable, with windows on street side, breakfast coffe was drinkable, breakfast very basic. Before coming in house, always need to use door bell, that means nun-old lady comes to open a gate. This is guest house a little bit specific, if i knew it before, i unselected it.

Beautiful view at the back and side of the hotel! We were a little taken back with the religious theme(small altar, prayer room,pictures of the cross, etc.) and only a few nuns spoke English that we encountered. The 11pm curfew was a shock and the fact that the lights were turned off in all public areas after a certain evening time in the hotel. However, it was a nice, quiet location with spacious rooms and clean bathrooms. The location was a little far to transportation and the main center of town(Sorrento). Breakfast was good and the staff were friendly and very helpful.

We were in Italy for 21 days and Domus San Vincenzo was one of the finest B&B we had the opportunity to stay at during our travels. By far a "best value" and relaxing stay with an excellent friendy order of nuns. And, the view of the Bay of Naples from the terrance garden is outstanding. We recommend it most highly.

The B&B location is fabulous - sea view, very quiet, garden on property - excellent for good night drink. Nuns are very attentive. Great experience overall. Breakfast is typical Italian - pastry, juice, and coffee. The only negative is - you will need to walk to a train (about 10-15 min) to go to Sorrento - 1 stop. Not a problem if driving, property has a small parking as well.

We travelled as a family of five and this B&B was one of few that offered a family room. The cost was very reasonable. The decor etc of the room is simple as befits that the B&B is in a working convent. The B&B does offer a sundeck and viewing platforms from which the views are wonderful. The sisters were very welcoming and the B&B provided a perfect base for us to explore Sorrento and surrounds. A quick walk down the historic steps to the beach. The convent is not in Sorrento itself but is a very quick walk to the rail station. This B&B offers a simple but lovely haven for quiet groups who respect that this is a special place in a working convent.

The Domus is situated beautifully, overlooking Sorrento harbor, and a short walk from the train which is one stop from the city center and about a 5 min ride. The sisters are very pleasant, and one sister speaks English perfectly and is very well informed. A terrace and lovely garden are availble for resting and looking out over the the sea. We only signed up for breakfast, which was the standard coffe and roll with cheese. While on a street with a very narrow roadway, the house itself is spacious, light and cool inside.

the hotel was fine for what we wanted with the room being tidy and clean. It's within easy walking distance of the town and for bars etc. The staff are a bit miserable and not very welcoming but you don't have to spend time with them although a smile and a few words wouldn't hurt now and again, we did try and converse with the guy on the front desk but to no avail. Florence is a really nice city, get the open top hop on hop off bus tour if you're only there for a short while it's a good way to get a lot crammed into a short time.

we were going to be late from the Naples airport. Called the B&B to let them know. No problem. We were met graciously, given directions to a restaurant to eat, and even had our bags stored for a day. The nuns were wonderful, even the one who didn't speak English. The surroundings are absolutely breathtaking, well worth the price of a room!! Only problem we had was originally finding the place and pulling our bags down a tight street with a lot of moving traffic.

Stationnement sécuritaire pour la voiture que nous n'avons pas utilisée préférant le transport public très adéquat pour visiter la Côte Amalfitaine.

This is a convent. Its great for families and older couples.They have a curfew and certain hours for eating.Which seems to be more conducive to a family that's traveling.The place is beautiful but not ideal for young people traveling. The location is a bit of a way from the downtown if your walking and cabs are overly priced. We only stayed one night finding the situation a little odd for us.

I stayed in a large family room with my two older children, and had a fantastic stay. Our room had an ensuite bathroom and a lovely balcony with beautiful views over the Bay of Naples. The room was spacious, clean and airy. It did seem unusual to knock on the door of a convent to ask for Bed & Breakfast, but the nuns were unfailingly friendly. Only one sister spoke English, so our conversation with the others was limited! I was impressed by the genuine kindness shown to our family, especially when we arrived early, somewhat dishevelled, in the early afternoon when no one was expecting us. Breakfast was prompt, with good coffee. Somewhat limited in selection, perhaps, would be my only real criticism. The directions to the B&B were hard to follow, though we did get there. It is only a 10 minute walk from the Circumvesuviana train station, but the last part of the walk is on a narrow road without any path for pedestrians, so I would recommend a taxi for anyone with young chidren. For people interested in the beach - it is a 10 minute walk (very steep, busy narrow road) to the nearest public beach, which is small, and pretty. It was not too busy when we were there in June, but the water was filled with rubbish, and the dark sand stained my daughters swimming costume. The beach itself was clean, and family friendly. Fortunately, most people staying here are coming for the historic sites and other attractions, for which the B&B is conveniently located.

This is a lovely accommodation in a wonderfully scenic setting and with your traveling euros going to a good cause. However, be prepared for an almost impossible to find location; we had to phone the convent 3 times to get there. And never arrive on Friday night in the late spring or summer; traffic was backed up to the exit on the autostrada in late April. The sign for the Hotel Klein Wien on route 145 is a help in finding the domus. When you get to the end of the road with Klein Wien to your right, turn left and the domus is only a block away.

A charming place, high among the rooftops above the Piazza Dante. The brother and sister who run it are helpful and informative and the place is a reflection of their taste, a combination of traditional Neopolitan furniture with modern touches, and a funky retro feel to the kitchen/breakfast room. Perfectly situated to explore the Centro Storico, it is also a welcome refuge from the busy streets with its calm roof-terrace and clean, quiet rooms. We loved it, as you can tell!

I would definitely stay at Domus San Vincenzo again, as the price was good and the nuns were very sweet in spite of the language barrier (only one sister spoke English). Remember this is only a place to rest your head so don't expect "concierge" service and respect the invitation to stay in their spiritual home. The veranda was wonderful with a fabulous view and the breakfast was more substantial than at most of the other places we stayed. One heads up: The hot water is turned off about 10pm, so make sure you plan your showers accordingly! The convent is about a 15 min. walk from the train station, so it was easy to get to Sorento and surrounding area. It was a lovely opportunity for a little calm and reflection during an exciting and fast paced trip.

Once you get out of the noise narrow street and enter the property, you will find an oasis. The garden with flowers, kiwi and grape vines, and specially the view overlooking the Naples Bay is amazing. Good memories of our four nights there, sitting outside enjoying a good wine, cheese, olives and grapes purchased in a little marked near by, not mentioning the walks to Sorrento and the surrounding area. My thaks to Mariangela providing us with good info about the area... Definitely a relaxing, simple, non expensive place to stay.

Hotel was excellent, within walking distance of a beach and lovely restaurant. 10 min walk to train station Sant'Agnello which was one stop from Sorrento. Naples airport bus stopped at Sant'Agnello train station, as did Positano bus. Only negative no washing facilities.

I was a bit surprised to find that the facility is still a working convent -- I thought it had been one previously. Not a problem for me but could be a problem for other visitors.

We had minor difficulties with communication, because only 2 of the staff spoke English and we are so poor in Italian language. Also the opening hours on evenings was a bit restricting. However the personnel was were friendly, the scenery was great, and the atmosphere was very special. We enjoyed the stay very much! Greetings.

Endroit serein, paisible et respectueux de la clientèle. Avec peu de ressources (1 personne parlant anglais) informationnelles touristique. Ne pas se fier aux indications publique pour s'y rendre car sont manquantes.

THe Domus San Vincenzo is located in one of the most the most beautiful places on earth. Once you arrive and walk out into the gardens, see the views, you will not believe what a magical place you have arrived at. The rooms are large, airy and simple (it is a convent, after all.) The beds were comfortable, and the nuns made us feel very welcome. I do want to warn anyone who is driving a car there that it can be a little scary entering the property if the gate is closed. You have to either call ahead (if you can speak Italian) or you can press the button on the gate. However, this means you must stop and block the road with your car, and the road is quite narrow. I would definitely return, and loved my brief stay.

Very clean and comfortable. Location on busy street, but quiet and great views of the sea in the rear. Sisters very accomodating. . Near towns with restaurants and beaches. You can take train 1 stop to Sorrento. Walking can be treacherous as no sidewalks.

Me and my friends spent 5 nigts in B&B Domus San Vincenzo. It was our first visit in Costa Amalfitana and our stay was unforgattable. It's a beautiful place to stay here with its simple but comfortable and clean rooms. We had a great sea view of the coast, the Vesuvius and the beautiful garden. We are very grateful to the nuns for the friendly and peaceful atmosphere. So, I strongly recommanded this hotel to everyone who wants to discover the Amalfi coast. 11 points out of 10.
