I took the advise of previous comments about the hotel and asked for a room away from the street, so had no noise at night which was great. The breakfast is a little poor, however there is a good coffee shop next door and is very close to bus and train station. Good place to stay for a quick trip through Sorrento.

I enjoyed the room and service at Hotel Nice. The bathroom was great and the best shower I've had in a while. The balconey was great just to sit outside and watch the people go by. The biggest downside is the noise from the street. There is a large scooter car park right below the window and this seems to be a favourite hangout for young people. Try to get a room away from the street and you'll have a nice stay. Breakfast was good as well.

Hotel is very convenient for trains and buses. One can walk to the port, but it would be difficult with luggage. Hotel breakfast had a coffee machine that made awful coffee (good selection of Twinings tea was available, however). Hotel is close to historical part of Sorrento. There are lots of restaurants near the hotel. Especially liked the Lione Rosso.

Booked three rooms, 1 for three adults and 1 for two adults. Rooms were more than sufficient for our needs. Location was great. Ask for a room in the back because the front rooms overlook the main street and could be very noisy. We did and were given rooms in the rear which were perfect. Bathroom could have been a little cleaner. Breakfast was fair, even for European standards. Staff were exceptionally helpful.

Good location. Good breakfast. Staff feigns understanding English. Leads to much confusion. Very very noisy. Our "quiet" room was loud with some thumping noise every few minutes like a compressor turning on and off and knocking on the ceiling. Staff couldn't explain and acted like they didn't hear the noise. Went on every day and night. Started early and still going late at night. Crazy. Great roof deck though.

Excellent location immediately in front of circumvisuviana train station and SITA bus stop. Perfect for access to Pompei, Mt. vesuvius by train and the Amalfi coast towns by bus. Excellent functioning air conditioning and TV. Clean bathroom with good water pressure and hot water. Staff very knowledgeable and friendly. The hotel is located on a busy street close to the center of town which is both an advantage (close to everything) and a disadvantage ( noisy at night). If you are looking for a place to get restful sleep this is not the hotel for you. If you want to be in the middle of it all and prefer to use public transit rather than taxi, this is a great option. Breakfast was mediocre but sufficient- cereal juices yogurt cookies.

This is a value for money hotel 2 minutes walk from the station. The staff were friendly and helpful. The only drawback was that some nights there was a lot of street noise as there is a scooter/motorbike pack accross the street. I would suggest looking for a room to the back. Otherwise we were delighted with the room. We didn't take breakfast, so we can't comment on it.

We spent three days in sorrento which we both thoroughly enjoyed. Quiet but beautiful scenery and array of stress free activities. Elements of Sorrento were far to touristy for our liking. We spent far more than we expected to. Although that was only a minor blip on the overall experience. Hotel nice was really good value for money. Perfectly adequate rooms, with air-con etc. Friendly staff we always had a giggle with. Really good access to train and boats for Capri, Naples + Pompeii etc. Two thumbs up!

While incredibly convenient (across the street from the Circumvesuviana train station!) and very affordable and spacious, I wouldn't stay at this hotel again. The floors were filthy, the shower stall smelled awful from never having been cleaned (no kidding). We were greeted by a cold young woman who spoke no English, which I think is barely acceptable in a town as touristy as Sorrento. We spoke decent Italian, but she couldn't be bothered with us regardless. Was a short walk from the main square, which was nice, and around the corner from a great pasticceria, "Aghana Thana," which was the highlight of our trip!

My second stay at Nice Hotel in Sorrento because I liked it the first time and furthermore after the second visit. The staff kind and friendly, the hotel situated perfectly near the Circumvesuviana railwaystation, the supermarkets and not so near the ferry-harbour. There was a little dirt in the edges of the showerbox but you don´t have to put your fingers there. Both times we had internal rooms, very quiet and overlooking a small garden with a beautiful black cat. First time on one stair up, second time two stairs up (elevator) with a huge common terrace with tables and chairs and where you can put your bathingsuites or eventual laundry to dry. I simply love the place.First time we were two couples, second time three females.

Right off of the train station. This was my first time to Sorrento we found the hotel right away no trouble with luggage. There was a small elavator to take our luggage up. I was worried about the quietness of the room in the morning as it was right next to the hub of buses and vepas going into and out of the train station, but found it quiet until I was ready to wake fully up. Bathroom was a good size with the normal european shower(a sqaure but it was like all the others). Excellent stay. hotel right off of main road in the city...just have to walk 1 minute to the main square. Check out the little bakery that is close by it was my favorite!!!

The hotel was easy to locate from the train station, just look straight ahead. I was given a quiet room as requested and Alphonso couldn't have been nicer. I needed a place to stay for one night after I returned from Capri to Sorrento. The website had said there was no room available at Hotel Nice but when I asked at the front desk I was told I could return for one that day and at the same rate. Upon my return I was able to check in early and I had been given the same room I had before. I would stay again there in the future as the location. price and breakfast were all very good.

The hotel should be renamed to Hotel Not So Nice. Yes, the location is ideal if you want to be right next to the train station and the city center (lots of shops, restaurants, walk to ferry to Capri), but the hotel really lacks and approaches a hostel-like experience. We had an ant infestation in the bathroom and found the windows did not even close completely . The young woman who worked the front desk made it obvious she could not care less about our experience. We ended up checking out and moving to Hotel Ville De Sorrento for our last night. It was only 40 euros more a night and so much better.

The room appeared to have been recently renovated. The furnishings were spartan but adequate. The shower was very small; a large person would not find it comfortable. Although I asked, there were no rooms available in the back of the hotel so my room overlooked the street. Based on previous reviews, I came prepared for the noise of a street side room and brought earplugs. I had restful nights. If you plan to spend a lot of time in your room, this is not the hotel for you due to the size of the room and limited furnishings. On the positive side, there is a nice rooftop patio with seating that overlooks the Piazza Lauro. You can listen to music offered nightly at a nearby outdoor restaurant from the patio. The breakfast was excellent- an assortment of breads, pastries and jams, several kinds of fruit juice, cold cereal, coffee, tea and hot chocolate. The proximity to public transportation couldn't have been better - local bus stop across the street, train to Naples and bus to Naples airport 1 block away. The Nice Hotel offers great value for the money.

Ideal location, just 50 metres from train station and bus terminus. Right in the middle of Sorrento, surrounded by bars and cafes and just 5 min from Tasso Square. My room was spacious and spotlessly clean, with plenty of fresh towels every day. The staff were incredibly friendly and as a lone female traveller I felt safe and comfortable during my stay. In fact, I am planning to return with a friend some time next year. Some people may complain about the breakfast, but trust me it is typical of most Italian owned hotels. Perfectly adequate with juice, several types of coffee, cereal and breads. The only people who would complain tend to be the ones who look like they could do with skipping the odd meal! This is a faultless hotel and having visited other hotels in Sorrento and compared prices, this is the best option I could find. In fact 'Nice' lives up to it's title.

We requested a room off the street as others on Venere indicated that the street-side was noisy. The Hotel honored that request. we met a couple who requested a street-side room and changed after one night because of noise. The room was very nice. Breakfast was simple but as good as any we found in Italy. The second floor terrace is nice to sip wine and relax. The train station and manjor bus stop is 1/2 block from the door. Our only problem was plumbing. We left very early our last morning and flushing the toilet caused a major flood. Not from a plug but from the refill tank. The pressure appeared to be too high and the water spewed out of the tank. But then we didn't find any plumbing that worked right in our 30 days in Italy. I would stay there again. Nice staff.

We read other reviews before we chose the Nice Hotel. The reviews we read were accurate as we hope ours will be. The location is fantastic, just yards away from the Circumvesuviana train station and from the stops for the Airport and Tourist buses. It is also very close to the centre of town. As it is on a Main Street, it can be noisy at the front, so ask for a room at the back; we did and looked out on a small, if somewhat untidy quiet courtyard and pond where cats slept in the long grass. The staff were friendly and helpful - I feel I should have made more effort to get to know them better. I feel the bathroom could have been a bit cleaner as there was grime round the tiles and panels of the shower, but this is a 'girl thing' and I didn't notice until my partner drew my attention to it. We only had breakfast on our final day. It was a bit sparse, which we expected after reading other reviews, but perfectly adequate. I don't think you will get better value for money, with good space, perfect location, well, probably anywhere else in Italy - if not Europe. When we go back next year we will stay at the Nice again - unless we win the lottery in which case we will stay offshore on our yacht!!

Location of Hotel is wrong on map. It is at the 2nd "S" in SS145. Very close to station. Great location close to shops and restaurants. Staff ok. Beware when attending b/fast late - product runs out and not replaced. would recommend this hotel for location alone. Lift available. Small shower - don't drop the soap

Great location, very close to train & bus stations, lovely park, great restaurants and the hotel is actually on the main street of Sorrento. Only downs were in regard to the cleaning,not all that good, could definately be improved and the attitude of staff. Smiles were "forced". I felt as though I was intruding on their property. Probably the worst welcome I received from any Hotel in Italy. However, the good points far outweigh the bad and I would recommend the Nice to anyone who is on a budget.

The location for this hotel was perfect especially if you're travelling to Sorrento by Train. This hotel is very clean and the rooms were quite nice, Afterll you're are only there to sleep and shower but overall we enjoyed our stay at the Hotel Nice no problems at all. It was a good experience for us.

The Hotel was in the Center of the very interesting and vital town. The only thing was, that we arrived later than 19.30 o'clock and therefore we couldn't reach the hotel with our car. So we had to park next to the railway station (at a watched car-park), but that was no problem, because we could investigate the surrounding while walking through the street. (TIP: Don't take too much luggage with you :)). The hotel was clean. In the morning it was a bit loud, but we had to get up early anyway, so that was no problem for us. Breakfast was small but OK.

The location was amazing because it was only a block away from the cir. train station. It was also right off of the main street. Although it was loud to be right on the street, the view from the balcony made it worth while. The people working behind the desk were very helpful with directions. When we ask about information for the ferry to Capri we even got a photocopied page of information. Our room was clean, cool, and spacious. I would suggest this place to anyone.

Sorrento isn't cheap but this is a good spot if you get a room away from the street. The rooms are peaceful and spacious and have good air-conditioning. The breakfast was disappointing (as it often is) but that was the only black mark. Very close to the train and bus station (but without feeling like it's in a bad part of town) and the bus from the ferry stops right outside too. Short, easy walk into town.

The great thing about Hotel Nice is location. It's right around the corner from the train station. Although it's located near the border of the historic center, it is not that bad since Sorrento is so small you can get anywhere by foot (shopping, restaurants, port, etc.) The price is great for what you get. It is rated as a 1-star hotel and I really don't know why that is. I have stayed at two other 3-star hotels in Italy and Hotel Nice is either the same or better in terms of property characteristics. The only thing is that the bathroom had a funny smell (not too strong though). Also, the staff is not very helpful with information for tourists (they don't even have maps), but I realized that one doesn't really need it. Sorrento is small (but really beautiful), and you can tour the entire city on your own. You won't get lost! All in all, it's a good deal for your money.

Superb location for railway station and bus connection to airport. I would recommend a room at the rear of hotel due to busy street in front side. Breakfast could have more choice, however the location, size of room, price per night more than compensate

This hotel had a great location. It's right on the main street of town, and right next to the train station, which is very convenient, especially if you take day trips. We had read some other reviews that said that it was noisy, so we requested a room in the back, and we had no problem with noise. The room had a TV and was clean with a clean bathroom.

The location was perfect for me who uses the private railway "Circum Vesuviana". It is just a few steps from the terminal. Room facing to fruit farm and oposite side of the main street of Sorrento was quiet. It was much larger and more comfortable than a single room of Hilton costed about 3 times. Thank you!

Hotel Nice gives you good value for money. The employees are friendly and helpful. The hotel is next to the train station and bus stop for coaches going to Amalfi, Positano. It is also right in the centre of Sorrent; near bars, shops, supermarket and restaurants -very convenient! We will definitely stay at Hotel Nice on our next visit.

A good, clean, pleasant hotel that is located right next to the station and very close to the historic town centre. Our room faced towards the back and was quiet enough. Breakfast is about average by Italian standards. We found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. Our one small complaint is that there was no shower curtain in the bathroom - fortunately, lots of towels are provided, some of which we used to mop up the floods.

An excellent choice for budget-minded travelers who would like a location near public transportation and the center of town in Sorrento. Breakfast, which was included, was basic but certainly sufficient to get us on the way for the day.

Great value and location. Friendly staff. Good base for exploring the Amalfi coast, Napoli, Pompeii, Herculaneum and Capri; train station and SITA buses less than one block away, ferries about a 10 minute walk. Quiet room in the back, clean and spacious. Unable to comment on breakfast as I always check out the local cafes-recommend Cafe Rita on corso italia.

The hotel is very convenient for the railway and bus station, far better located than the Venere map shows. We had a room at the front which was noisy but not unbearable, especially after a couple of drinks. The room itself was clean, and apart from the sliding door to the bathroom sticking, everything worked. Breakfast was fairly basic but perfectly edible, and there are plenty of shops and cafes nearby where you can top-up if you need to. Generally you get what you pay for, but by Sorrento's standards this hotel gives more. I would certainly recommend the Hotel Nice (but not Sorrento)

This hotel is in a great location, being one block from the rail and bus stations and two blocks from city center. It's in a good retail neighborhood, has a nice, friendly staff and is overall a very good bargain for the price. Our only complaints were that the showers are too small and the included breakfast isn't much. These are small sacrifices to make for such good value for your euro.

We were a family of 4 plus a grandparent. We stayed in the family suite and adjoining 3 bed room. All very clean and good space. Large bathroom, very clean, with a jacuzzi bath and separate shower. Only drawback is that loo is also in the bathroom, which means it is a bit awkward, particularly with 4 trying to get washed. Generally, a really good location, very close to station and to the lively centre of the town, but not particularly noisy (late October). IStaff very efficient and helpful when we needed airport transfers and wanted to change the type of bedding for my allergic son. Breakfasts are basic and in the basement, but you can always have it outside in a cafe withour breaking the bank. Thoroughly recommended. Note that the location map on Venere is wrong.

Centrally located and a great location but a little hard to find when we first arrived. It is in the main street but directions were a little lacking. We asked for and were allocated a rear room (to minimise the street noise) and there was no problem with noise. Room comfortable but painting/mould removal on walls required. We would return to this accomodation.
