We brought 40 students for a field visit and had a great time. The hotel is in a great location with lovely views over the bay. The steps you have heard about are a short walk up a cobbled access road - coaches can't come down and the hotel transports cases down by minibus - we enjoyed the daily exercise... More

I came here on a school trip and I was appalled at the state of the rooms. There was 5 of us in a room and we all ended up having to share in the 3 okayish beds together. There was mould on the duvets, stains on the bed sheets and mattress and to all of our disgust we found... More

My sister and I discovered Il Faro two years ago and fell in love with it and Sorrento. So much so it is a place to which we will always return. Il Faro felt like home. We had an amazing view of the sea from our room. The complimentary breakfast was perfect to get our day started. Nestled right in... More

I stayed here because nothing else was available in Sorrento. You should know the location is down by the port, so there are a lot of stairs or a nearby elevator to get up to the main square- Piazza Tasso. However- this is CLOSER than some other hotels that say they are in the center. The staff was very friendly... More

Stayed one week in this Hotel in room №511 (double for single use). For me this kind of room comfortable only for one person. The room was enough clean with road and cliff view from small window. Outside was enough loudly. Cleaning was good (especially lady look like Italian). Breakfast was good and enough different. The staff (young man) during... More

We were traveling with friends and had booked a large double room. Somehow we ended up with a queen bed and two singles, which would have been fine, no big deal.... But my single bed really sagged so in the morning I pulled back the covers to discover a torn, disgustingly stained mattress (will try to post a picture -... More

Arrived in Sorrento late and wanted to catch an early boat, so Il Faro was perfect. Hotel was not expensive (by Sorrento standards) but was adequate for what we needed. Room was a bit on the small side, shower a little narrow, but overall we had a decent night's sleep. I've only given it a 3, as we stayed in... More

The hotel is situated near the marina so very convenient if you are getting a boat trip. Also the buses are right out the front of hotel. Bus trip is a couple minutes to the centre of town. Or you can walk if its not to hot. The room it's self was very basic and semi clean. The shower could... More

I have just returned from Hotel Il Faro, having stayed there with 31 students and three colleagues. What we had was a memorable trip made more so by the unique nature of this hotel. Sure, room quality is inconsistent though all of the students got great rooms with balconies and super views (staff were less fortunate - our rooms were... More

My colleague and I took 34 students on a European trip and one of our stops was in Sorrento and stayed in this cute cozy hotel. It was in a great location, next to the harbor! The owner was very friendly and funny. He and his wife treated us very graciously. The food was awesome! I would love to return... More
