Many thanks to Rafaella and the staff (including Gianluca, Michelle, Angela, valentina and Lena) for making this such a relaxing stay. The reception team were always helpful and knowledgeable about bus and train services to help us get around to sorrento, Pompeii and local towns. Lena managed the breakfast on the terrace singlehanded -well done! and Gianluca looked after my... More

Great hotel! Let me start by saying that we travelled in a party of 6 including a 7 year old and 1 year old twins… The staff – Rafaella, Angela, Luisa, Valentina, made us feel very welcome from the start and really could not do enough for us - which included taking the twins a number of times at dinner...

Fantastic view over Vesuvius and Naples on the other side of the Sorrentiono (or is it the Naples) bay. With a rented car the entire Sorrentino peninsula lies within reach. Very friendly staff. Tidy rooms and neat garden. Food was great too.

Great staff,fab view. Even though we had a hire car we took advantage of the excellent shuttle service. It was like staying in a private club, would love to return. The access turning needs getting used to but is soon mastered. The restaurant was excellent and the maître d very helpful. Sitting on the terrace in the evening after a... More

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....

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
