This hotel has breathtaking views over the ocean and across to Capri. The decor is art deco and the cool blue and white theme follows through to all details. We had a room with a balcony, it was quiet and peaceful in the evenings. Pool side is lovely and when you fancy a change there is a lift to carry... More

The views from the terrace of this hotel are amazing (especially at breakfast). Our room was spacious and looked out on to the botanical gardens which were delightful and lovely to come back to in the evening. Breakfast was nice but certainly not five star - not enough selection of fresh fruit and the cooked breakfast was ok but not... More

This is a lovely hotel with amazing views of Sorrento. The beech area is the highlight of the hotel, worth staying in the hotel for! It was not 5 * experience, some of the staff were rude and not what you would expect for a 5*. Breakfast was average, diluted orange juice...

Spectacular views, especially from the restaurant deck. Free shuttle service to Sorrento downtown. The 3rd floor room (garden side view, very pretty) was very clean and spacious, with twin beds. Food excellent, and the morning buffet very pleasant, especially when taken out on the deck. Staff friendly. Unfortunately, the beach deck closes at 6. it would be nicer if it... More

Location and rooms has spectacular view . The only challenge is going to Downtown. Although, they provide a seattle, if it gets full you end up walking about half a mile to save about 20 euros to take a cub. BTW, you need to make a reservation for the seattle in advance. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Giovanni the... More

This hotel has some of the best views in Sorrento. The rooms are clean and really well laid out. Staff are helpful and friendly. Fabulous gardens for a stroll or an evening drink. It's a long walk to the centre of town or a short but expensive (!) taxi ride. Lovely breakfast room with the spectacular views.

We stayed at the Parco dei Principi for 2x nights last week- the hotel itself is very nicely built and has a nice 60s design maintained very nicely- however, the impression one gets is that anything you are trying to do the staff are looking for an opportunity to charge you for- so be preapared; everything will be charged including...

This is really like staying in a museum of early 60s design, so it needs to be judged in that context. As such, some of the reviews here are a little harsh as, even though it is a 5 star hotel, it's not 5 star in the sense of the Ritz or Savoy (or the Grand Hotel Excelsior Vittoria for... More

It is an amazing experience someone shouldn't miss to stay at a hotel designed by the great Gio Ponti. The hotel is set on a cliff surrounded by a spectacular garden and by the time you enter the reception desk you feel the magic of great aesthetics. If you are a fan of contemporary high luxury hotels you will feel... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Five-star accommodation and a prime location sat high on the ancient rampart of tufa, the Parco dei Principi is a testament to the timeless creativity of Gio Ponti, one of the most enlightened advocates of Italian architecture of the 20th century.Between the blue sea of Sorrento Coast and the lush greenery of the botanical gardens, Paul Leopold of Bourbon, the princes of Cortchacow and the entourage of the Russian aristocracy fell in love with this incomparable natural scenery, giving it a solemn historical heritage.Minimal atmosphere and space characterises the 96 rooms with original furnishings designed by Gio Ponti and customized specifically for the Hotel: the famous headboard-beds (1948), toilet set 'Vanity' with circular mirrors (1950), the chair 'Lightweight' (Cassina, 1952) and large fitted wardrobes. A variety of ceramic floors - as many as rooms - in shades of blue and white, in antique Majolica D'Agostino from Salerno, to reflect the colours of the sea and sky of Sorrento: moons, circles, triangles, stars and leaves are also used to tell a different story in every room.At the Restaurant Gio Ponti, a spectacular window over the Gulf of Naples and its islands, the day starts with a grand breakfast. Through striking tunnels in the rock, you arrive at the private beach or at the equipped solarium on the cliff. The pier is home during the summer months to the restaurant Poggio Siracusa where you can enjoy the fresh offerings of the sea accompanied by the sounds of the waves below.Among the horizon, the ancient oaks and the rare trees essences of the enormous botanical park, there is a seawater swimming pool designed by Gio Ponti as 'a mirror of water to wood nymphs'.To restore harmony to the body and spirit, guests can access the Fitness & Beauty Center of the Hotel, the charming majolica rooftop terrace with a view, and the marbled terrace of Villa Cortchacow dating back to the eighteenth century, on which the first ballerina performed to the Court of St. Petersburg.Since 2012, the lobby, with the incredible view of the Gulf has hosted the 'Museum of the Opera', an exhibition of original drawings and furniture in the rooms and in the common areas that have marked the history of Italian design.The business center of the hotel offers several meeting rooms with complimentary Wi-Fi and innovative technology: from the classic style of Sedowa hall with a terrace overlooking the sea, to the most modern modular Leonardo hall, surrounded by the garden Bourbon, with a seat capacity of 350. The outdoor areas offer a pleasant alternative for coffee breaks, lunches and dinners.Within the enchanting scenery of Monti Lattari sloping terraces lined with citrus, Parco dei Principi is an excellent location for pleasant walks through the typical craft shops and luxury shopping streets in the center of Sorrento, and for excursions to the nearby Amalfi Coast, the island of Capri and the archaeological sites of Pompeii and Herculaneum. ... more   less
