Torre Barbara was a fantastic discovery for us; centrally located, a beautiful view over the ocean and a wonderful restaurant. The rooms are clean and spacious enough. A plus for us was also the double shower. We will definitely be back! Only negative point: the small access road is rather tricky with a big (mono-volume) car, but we managed without... More

This hotel is perfect for relaxing and enjoying a fabulous view. It's off a busy road, but we had a sea view and the road noise NEVER distracted us form that. We also stayed in Room 203, so we had a terrace to sit on while enjoying our coffee or wine while watching the bay. This hotel is not for... More

My wife and I stayed at Torre Barbara for the second time and we can't wait to go back! We stayed at this hotel during our honeymoon and came back with our 2 years old son. Let me start by saying that we found the hotel even better than what we remembered. The rooms are renovated with a great view... More

With my cousin and a group of 31 other travellers we spent a week here and what an experience it turned out to be and not one I would wish to repeat. Whilst the hotel is small and intimate, incredibly clean and well maintained, the rooms adequate comfortable (we were at the rear of the hotel so no sea views,... More

Let me start by saying, we cannot understand the rave reviews of the service and food at this hotel. We stayed here for 3 nights with our 18 month old baby and, whilst the view was stunning and we were quite pleased to be far from the maddening crowds of Sorrento, the service we received varied from good to abysmal....

Dear Guest, thank you for your review, we know that our guests' comments can help us to improve our service!

Modernised and very comfortable hotel. On the main road but room quiet enough with the window closed at night. Lovely terrace and garden with small bathing pool, sun loungers and bar, and a terrific view across to Vesuvius. Don't try to walk to the hotel from the Circumvesuviana train station at Seiano as there's no pavement and it's a lot... More

My stay here was fantastic. The staff - -everyone from the front desk to the housekeeping staff - was extremely helpful and friendly. The location is perfect if you want to cover a lot of ground in Campania. You can get to Capri, ompeii, and the Amalfi Coast via Sorrento. I didn't rent a car and was able to get... More

As this was the last night of our trip, I wanted it to be really romantic - hence the choice of boutique hotel. However, our bedroom smelt badly of cigarette smoke. We arrived in the afternoon and if we hadn't had to leave for our flight first thing in the morning, I would have asked to change rooms. It was... More

Hotel was very clean and modern. The restaurant, located on the upper deck, had a magnificent view and the food was terrific - both for breakfast and especially for dinner! I had the best basil pasta ever, and I am of Italian descent and very picky! The staff was most accommodating and professional. The only downside was the presence of... More
