Hotel Parco dei Principi

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 5, 2013

We stayed 4 nights at this hotel last month. This was my favorite hotel of our entire 2 1/2 weeks in Europe!

We had a water front room, but I would not advise spending the extra money on this. It is lovely, but they have really nice public areas where you can sit outside and enjoy the beautiful views. If you do get a water front room, make sure they don't put you on the -2nd floor. There is a stone wall around these balconies, which makes them very private, but you can't see anything while sitting down as the wall is too high. The room was really large with lots of space.

The sandy beach is great and there is a great lounge area to relax. We only did one day trip up the Amalfi coast, so being a ways out of town, was really no problem for us. This was 4 days in the middle of a very busy trip and we wanted to relax on the water. The views were just as nice as the towns on the Amalfi coast and it was very quiet with only hotel guests and a private beach.

I do wish the shuttle ran later in the evening, but I am sure they cut it off early so you are encouraged to eat at the hotel. A couple of the nights we took the shuttle into town and then a taxi back, because it was after the last shuttle at 7:15. One night we just sat outside on the large area outside the bar and ordered food and drinks from the bar and enjoyed the beautiful sunset! There was a wedding that night, so we also had a great fireworks show!

I would definitely recommend this hotel and would stay here again!

The hotel is great in itself. Service, friendliness, amenities etc. My very minor comment is due to its location. If you wish to stay mostly in the hotel enjoying the view, beach and relax, then this is perfect. The hotel does provide a free shuttle service, leaving the hotel every 30 mins (first bus is at 9.00am, stops at 12.30pm, starts again at 5.30pm and stops for the night at 7.15pm). Otherwise it is a 20 min stroll - and some parts of the route does not have pavements - to the Piazza Tasso (the centre of Sorrento). I would recommend - for those who have buggies or less able to walk etc - to stay closer to the centre for ease to explore Sorrento and the surrounding areas, and for all the restaurants and shops that Sorrento has to offer more frequently.

My wife and I celebrated our 30th anniversary with a trip to Italy. Our son joined us and stayed in another room. We spent four wonderful days at the hotel. We thank Mario and the rest of the hotel staff for accomodating all of our needs. Their attention to us in Sorrento as well as our trips to Capri and to Abruzzi made plans go smoothly. Staff coordinated our transfers to and from the train station. The breakfast was complete with a wide variety of great food and an unsurpassed view of the sea. We had ample space in our rooms. Some guests have commented on the hotel design. Although it is unique, it is what makes Italy truly special, its independence.

We hope to return to the Parco in the future. We recommend it highly.

Room Tip: Balcony & Sea Views are a must

It rained most of the time that we were here so I couldn't tell you how the beach was, but I will say that the food that we had at the hotel restaurant for lunch when we arrived was very good. We got out of the area and walked through the town and found some "bargains", food wise. Cabs were expensive and they were filming a movie or show at the hotel while we were there and were not able to sit by the pool-that irritated me a bit. The one sunny day that we had and we could not spend it at the pool!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with closets. My friends had no closet space whereas we had closets galore!

We really enjoyed our stay at the Parco dei Principe during the last week in May. The staff were very friendly and helpful and I really appreciated the design of the hotel. The room - 411- was large with a fantastic view of the sea, Sorrento and Mt Vesuvius, lots of storage and linen sheets on a very comfortable bed. The reclining arm chair was very comfortable and the rest of the furnishings were very functional. The tiles in the room were very nice. As others have said it would be nice to have some nice art on the walls, but with that view not really an issue.

The location was great. We could walk to the old town in 10 minutes or take the shuttle. On our last day, however, we booked the shuttle for 11 and it didn't arrive until 11:20. We needed to get to the train station to catch the train to Napoli and then catch a train to Rome and were quite anxious. We were the only passengers on the shuttle and I asked the driver if he could take us directly to the train station. He said yes but then dropped us at the usual location and told us how to get to the station. It was close but not an easy walk with luggage. Luckily we caught the train. This was my big disappointment in service.

The hotel grounds were beautiful with amazing views and gardens. We could sit and relax out on the terrace, at the beach or by the pool. The spa services are lacking and overpriced so I would not recommend. The breakfast was good. I enjoyed the cappucinos and toast with jam in particular. The scrambled eggs were a little watery but okay. The gnocchi at the beach restaurant was really good. Food at main restaurant was good but not special. Enjoyed drinks and snacks at the bar.

I know people say it isn't 5 stars--it doesn't have luxurious accommodations but we were very happy here. The rooms are simple, plain, and clean. We loved lying in the sun by the beach on the pier. Surrounded by water it felt as if we are on a boat. The restaurant was good--we particularly liked the eggplant. The tomatoes were amazing. The hotel is away from the crowds but there is a shuttle into the center of town if you don't want to walk--although we did. We would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Choose a room with water view for a fantastic view.

the beach is just fantastic. best sea view from the beach.
the elevator going down and having a private area secluded from the rest of the world is really good.
perfect place for peace of mind away from a hectic city life.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Five-star accommodation and a prime location sat high on the ancient rampart of tufa, the Parco dei Principi is a testament to the timeless creativity of Gio Ponti, one of the most enlightened advocates of Italian architecture of the 20th century.Between the blue sea of Sorrento Coast and the lush greenery of the botanical gardens, Paul Leopold of Bourbon, the princes of Cortchacow and the entourage of the Russian aristocracy fell in love with this incomparable natural scenery, giving it a solemn historical heritage.Minimal atmosphere and space characterises the 96 rooms with original furnishings designed by Gio Ponti and customized specifically for the Hotel: the famous headboard-beds (1948), toilet set 'Vanity' with circular mirrors (1950), the chair 'Lightweight' (Cassina, 1952) and large fitted wardrobes. A variety of ceramic floors - as many as rooms - in shades of blue and white, in antique Majolica D'Agostino from Salerno, to reflect the colours of the sea and sky of Sorrento: moons, circles, triangles, stars and leaves are also used to tell a different story in every room.At the Restaurant Gio Ponti, a spectacular window over the Gulf of Naples and its islands, the day starts with a grand breakfast. Through striking tunnels in the rock, you arrive at the private beach or at the equipped solarium on the cliff. The pier is home during the summer months to the restaurant Poggio Siracusa where you can enjoy the fresh offerings of the sea accompanied by the sounds of the waves below.Among the horizon, the ancient oaks and the rare trees essences of the enormous botanical park, there is a seawater swimming pool designed by Gio Ponti as 'a mirror of water to wood nymphs'.To restore harmony to the body and spirit, guests can access the Fitness & Beauty Center of the Hotel, the charming majolica rooftop terrace with a view, and the marbled terrace of Villa Cortchacow dating back to the eighteenth century, on which the first ballerina performed to the Court of St. Petersburg.Since 2012, the lobby, with the incredible view of the Gulf has hosted the 'Museum of the Opera', an exhibition of original drawings and furniture in the rooms and in the common areas that have marked the history of Italian design.The business center of the hotel offers several meeting rooms with complimentary Wi-Fi and innovative technology: from the classic style of Sedowa hall with a terrace overlooking the sea, to the most modern modular Leonardo hall, surrounded by the garden Bourbon, with a seat capacity of 350. The outdoor areas offer a pleasant alternative for coffee breaks, lunches and dinners.Within the enchanting scenery of Monti Lattari sloping terraces lined with citrus, Parco dei Principi is an excellent location for pleasant walks through the typical craft shops and luxury shopping streets in the center of Sorrento, and for excursions to the nearby Amalfi Coast, the island of Capri and the archaeological sites of Pompeii and Herculaneum. ... more   less
