“Lovely staff, cliffside location.”
Reviewed September 14, 2011

Pertched on the edge of the Sorrento cliff, Bellevue Syrene's view is majestic. Both the breakfast, and lunch/dinner dining areas take full advantage, as do the sea view rooms. Staff are helpful and kind, and the rooms are clean and lovely, though not spectacular.

Some standard rooms have a bath but not a shower, so be sure to ask for a room with a shower if you require one.

The walk to the shops and dining areas of Sorrento is only 90 seconds away from this wonderful location.

The dock down at seaside level is disappointing. Chairs are light and uncomfortable, and there are very few amenities.

I don't think you can go wrong staying at the Bellevue if you understand you are staying at an 18 century villa.

I understand the rooms on the upper floors have been redecorated and are accurately reflected on the tripadvisor site. Note the modern colors. Our room was reasonable with a small terrace just big enough for a small table and 2 chairs - felt a bit boxed in with the slanting roof line limiting broader view but could stand at the rail and enjoy the full panorama.

Excellent breakfast buffet included. The real value add is the club lounge with complimentary drinks and snacks literally all day then moving to cocktails on the terrace overlooking the Gulf of Naples also complimentary.

Lobby staff were professional, friendly and accommodating - recommending very good restaurants and even a beauty salon where I got an excellent haircut. Upon check-out, they facilitated storing our bags and securing a taxi to take us to the ferry - coordinating the timing and were absolutely on top of it.

Only complaint I would vocalize is the wait staff in the club lounge were "unfriendly". No eye contact, no greeting and no service but they were tasked with stocking and cleaning up the lounge area, a thankless job.

Above I provided the pros and cons for the benefit of the tripadvisor audience but want to state I would NOT hesitate to stay at the Bellevue Syrene again.

Great location based literally two minutes walk from the main piazza and shopping area. The hotel itself is great, very picturesque and well maintained. It has lots of public area space both inside and out which means you can sit in the sun, the shade or indoors. The decked area by the sea is very easy to get to via lift so you do not need to climb the cliff face to get there.

Included in the rate were snacks and drinks all day. These were freely laid out and replenished when gone. It was great as on an evening qw they moved them down to a terrace which overlooked the bay so you did not miss out.

2 best things about the hotel apart from the unbeatbale location were firstly it was not stuffy or pretentious at all and secondly the amazing views of the bay from the breakfast room (guessing restaurant in colder periods) all the way across the bay through floor to ceiling windows,

Great hotel with great staff. Well worth the money.

We went to Italy to celebrate our 5 year anniversary. We decided to spend the last four nights of our trip in Sorrento to relax, savor the views, and be spoiled. The Bellevue Syrene was definitely the perfect place for all this and more! The hotel is definitely deserves its FIVE star rating.

The service is amazing and the staff is so friendly and they go out of their way to help, Our booking included breakfast which was divine! Everything from cereal and pastries to freshly cooked eggs and meats were available. Teh servers would remember us and bring us our customized espressos as soon as we walked in!

They have a "happy hour" outside of reception that lasts from 9am-9pm! They have wine, champagne, prosecco, all liquours, coffee, etc. They also have snacks according to the time of day!!! It was great.

We spent one afternoon in the spa -- the turkish bath was relaxing and the massages and nail services were nice.

The views are breathtaking!!! the patio was an awesome place to share a bottle of wine and watch the sunset!

The city is small and quaint and there were mostly local italians on vacation. But its a great place to relax and the food is great!

I would recommend this hotel to anyone that enjoys being pampered!

We did not stay at the hotel but had lunch on the patio. What a hidden gom. The view was world class. The service, during our short stay, with a fmaily, was very courteous. Believe me, the waiter could have been very rude, we were there for a quick lunch, with 5 kids, one special needs, but they were great. We hope to come back again and stay.
