“Fantastic hotel and great team - a wonderful 4 days!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2014 via mobile

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 wife and I very well during the evenings with helpful recommendations from the menu and wine selection (the costa d'amalfi gets my vote) - a thoroughly nice guy. The menu was really good, with enough choice to keep us going throughout our stay without any repeats. Thanks to chef Pepe.
We upgraded to get above the noise, but to be honest the work that has gone into soundproofing all the road-facing rooms is amazing. Well impressed with the hotels blend of historic and modern - cool, airy common areas and stylish, a/c rooms. Views from the terrace, or from balcony adjoining rooms 403 & 404 was tremendous, looking over the bay of Naples and Vesuvius - 10 out of 10.
Would highly recommend this hotel for those with car, but not wanting the bright lights of Sorrento (only 6km away).
Thank you Rafaella and all at Torre Barbara for a great stay.

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 time allowing us to eat in peace! The hotel is situated about 10 mins from Vico Equense and a short drive to the train station with a 6 minute train ride to Sorrento. The hotel has a courtesy bus which drops you to the train station and will collect you on return – a simple phone call 30 minutes in advance is typically enough time to arrange the collection. The rooms are modern, clean and are serviced daily. The hotel has stunning views of Vesuvio across the bay of Naples. The terrace is elevated from the road and there are plenty of seats on the terrace, which was relaxing after a day spent by the pool. Lena organised breakfast which was great – Lena also took a baby when she had a moment!! GianLuca served dinner, which again was great (I’d recommend the seafood salad). Pizza is recent addition to the menu, again the pizza was great.
Full marks to all at the Torre Barbara, they could not have made us feel more welcome. If you want to stay in the Sorrento area but not quite in the centre you should not look further that the Torre Barbara.

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 day amongst the ruins was utterly relaxing.

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 damage :-)
A big thank you to the whole team for the wonderful stay.

Room Tip: The rooms have 'double' windows, locking the noise out, which is rather necessary as the hot...

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 the traveler that is looking for several things to do within walking distance. We did walk down to the beach for an afternoon, but we are a very fit couple and several miles of walking (on a road with no sidewalk) was not intimidating. The shuttle only runs at limited times, so we did take it to Viceo Equense for dinner, but had to take a taxi back. There is a train station very close by and we easily took that to Pompeii for a day trip. But the shuttle was not in service when we returned, so we walked back. Again, this is not an issue for anyone that is not bothered by walking. Just beware of cars. They are aware of you, so I felt safe.
The hotel staff is very, very friendly. I loved that dinner was prepared using vegetables from their garden. We had dinner there on one night of our stay and it was delicious. I would highly recommend Hotel Torre Barbara to anyone that wanted a restful, peaceful place to stay.

Room Tip: Request Room 203 or 205 for a terrace!

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 and the staff is very friendly and accommodating. The eating area is outside on the patio and the view is spectacular, really like a postcard!
It's a must stay! Great place for couples and families!
