“Stunning Location!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012

Only a couple of minutes walk up hill from the town centre of Sorrento, this beautiful hotel is well worth a visit. The views are spectacular, and are the focal point from the restaurant, deck and pool areas. The food is very good; waiter service in the evening so no walking around a heaving buffet full of dry or cold food! Breakfast includes complimentary Prosecco and there are freshly cooked omlettes and pancakes plus full English breakfast or continental to choose from. The pool area is peaceful, with 5 cascading pools, plenty of sunbeds and lots of deck areas to choose from, plus a pool bar with waiter service and restaurant. Drinks were fairly expensive in the hotel and in bars in the town, but in the hotel you don't need to worry about carrying money as you set up a tab to your room when you check in. As with most hotels in the area, the Capodimonte is built into the hills, so is not really ideal for people with limited mobility, but there are plenty of lifts between floors. Rooms are very clean and spacious, we had no complaints. Staff are English speaking and very friendly and helpful. If I went back to Sorrento, I would not stay anywhere else, beautiful!

Room Tip: If you're flush pay extra for a room overlooking the bay, otherwise you may be facing a stone wa...

We could not have been more delighted with our choice of hotel. The property has wonderful views from almost every part of it. From the restaurant which had a delicious and extensive breakfast buffet to the romantic restaurant overlooking the pool we enjoyed a myriad of views from morning to evening. The hotel was very helpful in arranging two wonderful tours - one to the Amalfi coast and the other to Capri. The tours were excellent and they picked us up at the hotel. The hotel was also within easy walking distance to town which we also enjoyed. Our room was spotless and had a small terrace outside with charming views and flowers planted in the hillside. This hotel made us feel like VIPs in the outstanding attention to detail that was demonstrated in the arrangements they made for our tours as well as their restaurant service. Nothing was too much to ask-- their graciousness and professionalism were exceptional.

We stayed here as a part of our honeymoon. The hotel is very nice and the breakfast buffet was great as well. The pool was a very nice amenity. It featured an infinity edge and amazing views that made for great pictures. The location was a bit odd as it was on a busy street but as long as you are careful you will be fine.

My son and his now wife chose to have their wedding reception at this hotel at the end of September and the day could not have been more perfect! And this was in part due to the wonderful service and wedding breakfast provided by the hotel - notably Giuseppe and the restaurant staff.
With drinks and canapés served on the terrace offering amazing views of the bay and Vesuvius, it was a perfect setting before the main meal in the dining room. Here our guests could enjoy the spectacular views again with wall to wall windows - sadly, being on the top table, we missed out somewhat! The food chosen was faultless and beautifully presented with excellent service.
In the lead up to the wedding Giuseppe was quick to answer our emails and questions and once there at the hotel he was happy to accommodate any changes - a huge thank you to him!
Organising such a wedding from afar with no one visiting the venues or tasting the food beforehand, can be a risky affair but any concerns we may have had were to no avail and we could not have been more pleased with our 'destination wedding'. We and our 65 guests had a very memorable day and notably the bride and groom also! Consequently, we would highly recommend the Copodimonte as a wedding venue.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Capodimonte. Excellent Hotel and service. Our flight arrival was slightly delayed, so when we arrived we were impressed to be greeted at Hotel with Porter service and ushered to our meal immediately. VIP service. The meals and views were excellent, Staff were lovely. Only one issue. The young chef could have raised a smile more. Other than that happy with room, views, and hotel. Lovely. Excellent location. Last visited Sorrento 23 years ago. We visited at end of August this year. Would go again.

have just returned from a 3 night stay and found this to be a fantastic and clean hotel in a great location just 5 mins walk from the town. we didn.t get a room with a view but we were not bothered as there are so many wonderful views from this hotel. the restaurant staff were very welcoming, i found the food lovely but if you are a fussy eater you might not like the menu as it is not buffet style but more a la carte. the only downside is the road outside is busy and even though there is a crossing italian drivers rarely stop for you. the coach transfer from naples airport takes about 2 hours when busy and if you are scared of heights you might find the majority of the transfer scary as you are really high up on mountain roads but it is very scenic and for the return journey it was dark but the views were fantastic

The Hotel has some impressive elements; the entrance, the terraces, the bar. Unfortunately this is offset by some other aspects of the Hotel, like the very bright dining room which lacked any atmosphere, the reception staff who are not that engaging and the dining room staff who come across a little abrupt and seemed to be constantly chatting / arguing with each other even across the restaurant and the cost of some of the snacks which were excessive. Despite the fact that the Hotel is located just outside of town it is only a 10 minute walk to the centre and does benefit from some great view of the bay. The room was OK but needed a little attention.
