#89 of 103 hotels in Sorrento
The Hotel Il Faro was born in a strategic position, in a romantic setting, the only hotel located in the Port of Sorrento, a few steps from the sea and the embarkations for the neighboring islands (Capri, Ischia, Procida), in a position strategic just 500 meters from the square dedicated to the Tasso "Piazza Tasso". The structure is very characteristic in a marine style; the sea view rooms all renovated, enjoy a spectacular view, equal to a beautiful postcard

Stay here if you want a good location, otherwise I am sure there are other places locally which are much nicer and more reasonably priced. For a start, no parking - local car park recommended by the hotel charges €25 a night! For ~£90 our room was tiny and up in the roof. Little to no room to manoeuvre or put our suitcases, and very little light coming in from a small high up window, leaving the room feeling dark, with dark wood panelling. They didn’t bother to mention the sun terrace - we only discovered it by chance! Shower and bathroom needed updating. Mould/mildew on the tiles. The whole room just felt a little claustrophobic, especially with a bizarre sliding door which made it feel like there was very little privacy. Felt like we were sleeping in a cupboard. Breakfast was decent, good selection of cold foods. Reception friendly enough, but completely lacking any personal touch. Overall, for the price.. not worth it! We would have preferred to stay further out as we have at other hotels.

Hotel's Favorite
Just returned from a week the Il Faro, Lovely hotel situated right on the port front. ideally situated for everything. friendly and helpful staff. good food and good choice menu. The hotel was very clean and towels changed every day. Air con. We loved our stay and would recommend staying at the Il Faro. Although there is no pool, there is a sun terrace which has stunning views of the bay and Vesuvius.

Ok, My wife and I stayed here for four nights recently for our friends wedding. This is a typical B&B. if you are only planning a short trip and you need a base its perfect. We found our room basic but comfortable. we didn't have a room with a view as it was a budget week, if you want a view of the harbour and vesuvius its extra obviously. The breakfast is a simple continental breakfast which is satisfactory for what it is. there is no beach really, the 50 metres of beach there is is normally packed by locals. There is no pool but there is a sun deck which is comfortable. you wont be waited on hand and foot although the staff are very helpful and polite. THIS IS NOT A 5* HOTEL so dont be expected to be treated like it is. if you want 5* then pay for it . II' faro is perfect for what it is. We had a lovely stay the mattresses are hard but We both enjoy a firm mattress. thank you Ii' Faro

Stayed here for one night to get a ferry to Positano the next day after a week of sailing. We got the last room for $180AU the day before which was a good price for Sorrento. The last room was 214 which is on its own floor and right next to either a kitchen or restaurant as you can hear talking from the room. The bed has the lumpiest mattress I have ever experienced but after a week on a boat I still slept ok. The wifi only extends to the front door of 214 and not inside but works well elsewhere in the hotel. Not even phone coverage makes it to 214. Breakfast was quite good. Air con controlled by the hotel was good and on all the time in June. Location is good if you want to get ferries to other destinations. There are restaurants right outside too and one that is part of the hotel which we didn’t use. To get to town is a walk up the stairs nearby. The beaches are also fairly close walk. Definitely has some pro’s but also be aware of the cons if you want a nice bed. Room size is big, bathroom was clean and ok. Had a single bed plus two singles pushed together. Staff on reception also could be more friendly. We came early to ask if they could send us a message when the room was ready. We just got a blank “check in is at 2pm”. Came back at 115 and left our bags but the room wasn’t ready til after 215pm. The bags are just stored in the meantime in the open foyer area. Room has a safe but we had to go downstairs to ask for the key to that too.

The location of the hotel is excellent, right at the port. So easy to catch a boat or a bus. Also is about 15 minutes walking distance from the train station. Amazing location. Super easy to catch a bus or boat right in front of the hotel. Staff were friendly, but the cleanliness of the bathroom is terrible. Mold everywhere. AC was not working properly and room was very hot. Also I had what was quite possibly the hardest bed I have ever tried to sleep on.
