Hotel Alpha details
Serving up old-world Italian charm with a modern edge, the Hotel Alpha makes a stylish base.
Hidden away in the quiet Sant’ Agnello part of town, this hotel offers up a mix of classic and contemporary. The accommodation is split between a 19th-century villa and a modern main building, and it’s all threaded together by sweet-smelling orange and grapefruit trees, manicured lawns and flowering shrubs. What’s more, Sorrento proper is just a five-minute bus journey away, and pretty Marinella beach is even closer.
Outside, you’ll find a classic rectangular pool at the heart of things. Fringed by shady palms and a wide sun terrace, it’s a top spot to relax. There’s a poolside bar, too, and a separate splash area for the kids. Head inside, meanwhile, and a classic Mediterranean scene greets you. We’re talking pretty painted tile floors, carved wooden furniture and a soft cream colour scheme. Bedrooms are spacious, with high ceilings and private balconies, while modern touches like plasma TVs and air-conditioning keep things up-to-date.
Last but not least, there’s the dining scene to consider - and that’s an area where the Hotel Alpha really excels. Its recently refurbished restaurant prides itself on its homemade pasta and rich desserts. There is a weekly Neapolitan evening and a lavish gala dinner, too.
