“A fantastic place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2006

After staying at two other hotels in Sorrento, we found this wonderful hotel on top of the mountain with the best view on the Amalfi coast. The owner was fantastic and the 10 minute shuttle they run into town was very accomidating. The view from the balcony was so fantastic, we found ourselves having picnics there almost every evening. The food in the restraurant was also exceptional, with the same lovely view. Take a tip and stay here and NOT in the overcrowded/noisy city of Sorrento. Thanks to evryone at the Il Nido that made our stay there wonderful!

I recently stayed at Il Nido for 4 nights. It is a nothing fancy hotel that has a great view for a low price. The hotel's shuttle service couldn't be better. It is a 10 minute ride that runs every hour into Sorrento. I would not recommend staying in Sorrento proper....it is a noisy rat race! The food was wonderful and inexpensive at the Il Nido Restaurant. The terrace view from the restaurant is spectacular! Room were big with adequate furnishings. Bathrooms were Ok but there was some mold on the walls. The hotel staff was friendly. Breakfast was good. I would stay there again if I were in the area even though I wasn't wowed by it.

  • Liked — The view
  • Disliked — Noisy hallways. Wear earplugs to bed and you will have no problems.
  • Tips/Secrets — Make sure you visit Positano while you are in the area. We liked it much better than Isle of Capri.

What a surprise after our ride by car to find this gem out of the blue! It's worth the few miles you have to do to get there by all means! The place is like a small paradise, the owner Dino very pleasant and helpful (he speaks French too - he made us feel at home). The restaurant has a terrace with a beautiful view on the Bay of Naples. We even had fireworks two nights in a row! The food, the service, excellent! I highly recommend it. Once you are there, there is a bus taking you downtown every hour if you don't want to take your car. Merci Dino. An unforgettable experience!

Found this hotel referred by a traveler on Rick Steves' website. It seemed a little far from downtown Sorrento when the taxi was taking us, but the downtown accomodations turned out to be noisy. They have an included shuttle bus to downtown once an hour (or you could cab it if you're in a rush.) The view was awesome--the entire Bay of Naples. Having just arrived from Rome, a nice town but no views, the nights at the El Nido were just what we needed. The prices were reasonable at within our budget of $125 per night.

  • Liked — The view, the quiet, and the restaurant
  • Disliked — Nothing
  • Tips/Secrets — Don't stay in downtown Sorrento if you want a view and quiet.

Having stayed at the Il Nido on our first visit to Sorrento five years ago, we eagerly looked forward to our second visit. And we were not disappointed. The friendly, family atmosphere lends to the serene setting of this comfortable home away from home. The hosts and are very accomodating and willing to go the extra mile to make guests want to extend their stay. The views from the balcony are truly awesome and unforgettable. The food was excellent and as reasonably priced as the rooms. The minivan makes excursions to town a snap. We would never consider staying anywhere else in Sorrento.

  • Liked — Clean, comfortable, value-priced

Hotel Il Nido is on a hill above and to the left of Sorrento. This hotel is bright, immaculate, spacious, and very lovely. The views from the rooms and restaurant look over Naples Bay at Mt Vesuvius and the lemon groves below.
The free shuttle service every hour to the town and train station in the morning and then from the meeting point in the evening is terrific.
The breakfast is a buffet unlike the other hotels I was at. There was fruit, cheeses, meats, scrambled eggs, sausage, croissants, breads, orange juice, coffee, tea etc. Awesome.
I ate at the reastaurant every night because I was a solo traveller and going down to the town alone and finding a restaurant is tiring. The food is great and the service is friendly. It is the owner and manager who waits on you with help from another family member. They could use an additional person. It can get busy.
There are two computers for checking email, you just have to get a password from the desk to access it.
Beautiful Place to be for all age groups.

Stayed September 2006

My husband and I recently stayed at the Il Nido Ristorante Hotel in the hills of Sorrento and we loved every minute. We had a nice room overlooking the Bay of Naples and Vesuvius., and the restaurant was consistantly good. It is a family run hotel, and we were treated like relatives. The free shuttle was wonderful, allowing us to go into Sorrento and come back at night. It was also easy for getting to the train station and taking the train to Pompeii. We will definitely recommend this hotel to our friends.

  • Liked — the food and staff
  • Disliked — NA
  • Tips/Secrets — The shuttle has a schedule, so be aware of it and the meeting places
