“Great Hotel, Fantastic Holiday”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

Visited Sorrento for five days in May with my mother and daughter. The hotel was very central, short walk to nearby restaurants and shops. The hotel was spotless, we had a lovely room looking out on the gardens, with lots of orange and lemon trees. We were very pleased with our choice of hotel. There was a roof top pool which had lovely views, sun loungers and a little bar, and there was another pool in a little shaded area. There was a wonderful breakfast each morning, all sorts of meats, breads, yogurts, bacon, eggs, a very wide selection of all sorts. The reception staff were helpful, giving us advice on planning our trips to Capri, Amalfi Coast and Pompeii, with train and bus timetables. Just one thing to note if you to visit Sorrento, the bus trip to Amalfi coast is not for the faint hearted, we got return tickets but came back by boat (less scary), but definitely do visit this beautiful place.

Stayed May 2012, traveled solo

After selecting this hotel from Thomson Travel I was, as always, a little apprehensive about what we would actually get. Fear not. This is without doubt a beautiful hotel. We were given a top floor corner room overlooking the bay of Naples (from the balcony) which was actually better than a front facing room on the top floor as the balcony of these rooms are overlooked from the roof terrace along with the inevitable noise of the rooftop swimming pool. The room itself was clean, very nice with traditional inlaid wood furniture, and a good size bathroom. My only gripe of the whole holiday, was the air conditioning unit was a bit noisy, and I thought at first there was a noisy diesel truck on the road below. But after contacting reception, they fixed it by the time we got back from a day out. Food from the restaurant was first class, and made that much better by the fabulous Enzo and his great team. The courtyard garden was lovely, restful and quite, with pagodas covered with lemon. We preferred to have lunch here rather than in Sorrento.

You can walk into Sorrento within a few minutes along the main road, but after discovering it the second day, we always walked through the lemon grove whose gates are at the end of the road turning left from the hotel.

Would I recommend? Absolutely.

Room Tip: If you want a sea view, then the top floor will be the best. However, a word of warning. The roofto...

This is a well placed hotel for the centre of Sorrento and is also within close proximity to the train station for those trips to Pompeii / herculaneum etc.. and not far from the port for that must-do trip to Capri. The staff are friendly and helpful, there was a good selection of food available and the room we stayed in was large and well maintained with a magnificent view of Vesuvius. Thoroughly enjoyable stay at a fabulous place.

We stayed here last Easter and had a fantastic time. We arrived in the early hours of the morning and there were staff on hand to greet us and show us to our room. Everyone was very friendly, helpful and accommodating and made you feel very special. We had a room with a view of Vesuvius and Naples and all for just 17p extra per night! We also ate in the main hotel restaurant on our last night and the food and wine were delicious. We would definitely stay here again and happily recommend it to anyone.

We chose this place because it had decent sized rooms with balconies, a roof-top swimming pool, views over the bay and was close to Sorrento centre without risking being too noisy. We weren't disappointed.
Driving there from Naples was an adventure (driving anywhere in Italy is an adventure) but the Nokia maps got us there and we dumped the car outside and went in to reception. very friendly staff inc the porter who parked the car in the underground park.
Good room for the money (mid-priced double with balcony & sea view). we had a bottle of champers and gazed over the lemon groves to the Bay of Naples and Mount Vesuvius.
Breakfast was always good in the vine clad courtyard (you can eat inside if you want) with very friendly and professional service.
We spent most days either exploring the town (10 min walk) or the Almalfi coast (short drive). Typically we'd then spend some time in/by the pool (no kids!) then head into town for dinner - plenty of good restaurants.
We had no problems at all with the hotel and would be very happy to stay there again.
Definately recommended.

Room Tip: Most rooms have balconies, the ones in the front have good views and plenty of sun.

This is in two parts:

1/ Hotel De La Ville :
We had a wonderful week here, food was lovely and the staff most helpful. Central location great as could walk to the train station with the children and travel to Pompeii and Herculaneum without needing to book excursions. We all loved it.

2/ Thomson : The website was deceptive and we paid luggage charges in error. They refused to refund these for no good reason. The one excursion we booked with them was a disaster. They did not pick us up and when we called them the agent sent us on another excursion - which we abandoned when we found out they were trying to put us on the wrong boat. I advise avoiding Thomson altogether and booking instead directly with the hotel, Expedia or similar. It was easy to organise excursions and boat trips ourselves with the advice of hotel staff.

Our group of six arrived on foot from the train station at night. The walk was fairly easy even with (rolling) luggage and we felt perfectly safe walking through town. Lucio was waiting for us behind the front desk and gave us a very enthusiastic and warm welcome. The location of the hotel was excellent for exploring the town (shopping, eating and swimming). The breakfast selection was huge and eating outside on the patio was a beautiful location. We were able to visit the sister hotel just two blocks away to swim in the ocean. The only dissapointment was the double bed which was just two singles pushed together.

Room Tip: One of two rooms on the top floor had a view of local apartments. The room on the second floor righ...
