We were on the fifth floor with lovely views over the harbour the room was large but basic and very clean. Read previous reviews about the hotel being filthy we didn't see any...

After a very long coach ride we arrived after nine at night ,the restaurant stayed open for us , all four, which was so nice . The hotel is family owned and it shows, everyone could not have been nicer,friendlier and a smile whenever you went. Only slight problem was School children,the hotel had quite a few groups staying as...

By far the worst hotel we have ever stayed at. The pictures are completely misleading and the rooms are filthy. Bugs, dirt - totally gross. The owner and many of the people working there were unusually rude as well. (Except for the dining staff present for breakfast. They were very nice). Please save yourself the trouble and book somewhere else.

Second time I stayed here. Two weeks total. Very historic location. So easy to walk out the door and catch a ferry to Amalfi,Capri,Naples. It is at the bottom of the cliffs right on the water, but easy to take the elevator up to the top. 1 euro or easy to walk up. The hotel is family owned and I...

Sorrento always seems to get high praise from people. I only spent one night there so will limit this review to the hotel I stayed in. This hotel needs updates, specifically the pillows and the antiquated hairdryers which are rubbish. The pillows are like stones and the walls are thin. The food is basic...both dinner and breakfast. Dinner was stodgy...

Just returned from a lovely week at the hotel Il faro. The hotel is in a superb position close to the harbour ,but tucked in a secluded corner so out of the main hustle and bustle. Look on google maps to see the position ,as this will make finding the stairs down from the High Street to the lower harbour...

What a fabulous location. So close to where the ferry docs and where you can catch a bus up to the main township. There is also a restaurant attached to the hotel right outside the front door. The staff were so helpful. The food was also very fresh and tasty. We would stay there again.

The location is wonderful since it is the closest hotel to the ferry that takes you to Capri and is only a 10 minute walk away from the metro. Our room was cozy and had a beautiful balcony overlooking the water, a perfect summer getaway. The best thing about Il Faro was its service and employees. They were extraordinarily considerate...

Went on a school trip to this hotel. A room for 5 of us was very good, however one of the beds placed in the room were weak with support. We got lucky to get a good room with an amazing view of the coast, we were not expecting such a nice room with a balcony. The location of the...
