“"All you could ask for and more"”
Reviewed June 24, 2012

Just got back from a 2 week stay at this wonderful quaint hotel. We couldn't have chosen a better place to be. This family run hotel makes you feel like you are one of them. It is the little things they do that make this a exceptional establishment. On two occasions my husband and I had planned a day trip and as we were leaving we were handed a sack full of fruit, cakes and other breakfast/ lunch treats. The atmosphere by the pool is laid back, very relaxing and the pool snacks hit the spot. It is conviently located, a 20 minute stroll from Sorrento's city center, wonderful restaurants and cafe's. Would go back in a heartbeat !!!

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view room.

Just returned from a week in the wonderful Hotel Girasole in Sorrento and loved every minute! The family who run the hotel are lovely and welcoming and the hotel itself is clean, has a lovely atmosphere and great food by the pool. Food is not available at night but with the huge selection of restaurants nearby it is fine. I would recommend La Favorita in Sorrento
The hotel is situated in between St Agnello and Sorrento and is about a five/ten minute walk outside central Sorrento, if you turn right out of the hotel and first right again you can walk along quieter streets into either St Agnello or Sorrento. I would highly recommend this hotel. The owner was fantastic when a lovely girl called Elin succumbed to the sun (fainted), the bar staff were professional and helpful and took her to the hospital. (Elin, I hope you are ok if you read this!!) I love it and want to go back....NOW!!!

Have just returned from staying for 7 nights at the Girasole and couldn't wait to share my experience. The hotel is run by a lovely family who speak excellent English and from the outset they made us feel welcome. The hotel is situated on the busy Corsa Italia but we had requested a garden room at the back which is quiet and has beautiful views of the mountains and the lemon & orange trees. Our room was on the ground floor and a tall tree prevented us from seeing Vesuvius which I'm sure would be visible from higher floors. The breakfasts were of a very high quality comprising continental meats & cheeses, fresh bread, fresh fruit, yoghurts and cakes. The entire hotel was kept scrupulously clean especially around the pool area where deckchairs are provided for free & sunbeds for 3 Euros. Pool bar meals were also delicious as was their homemade lemon juice. On departure day the hotel provided a shower room with clean fresh towels and toiletries which was an unexpected bonus. Even though the walk into the centre of Sorrento takes about 15 minutes the qualitity and friendliness of the Girasole would make me want to stay there again. We didn't book any of our tour operators trips but travelled independently on the local trains and buses via the main Sorrento station to Pompei, Vesuvius, Herculaneum & The Amalfi Coast. It was so easy and we saved a fortune. Our best value trip was a mini cruise on the San Valentin Gescab boat from Marina Piccalo which took us to Capri, Amalfi & Positano for 24 Euros each. It provided spectacular views of the Amalfi Coast and was so relaxing. All in all we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend a stay at the Hotel Girasole to anyone.

Room Tip: Request a garden room at the back. The small supplement is definitely worth it

The staff at Girasole are really nice and helpful and do all they can to make the guests enjoy their stay. The pool area with lemon and orange trees is very relaxing and beautiful. This hotel really gives value for money and I can highly recommend it.

This is our second time staying at the Hotel Girosole and hope it won't be our last. When we returned this year we were greeted with so much warmth from Rita and the rest of the family. As a group leader of 20 people my job was made so much easier with the helpfulness from everyone. Our accomodation was prepared and dinner waiting for us when we arrived. The Rooms are clean and comfortable and the views wonderful. The food was plentiful and good and there were no problems with any dietary requirements that we had. It is a very simple 20 minute walk into the centre of Sorrento which was very convenient with no hills or cliffs to walk up. I look forward to returning next April, although one year I would love to come in summer and enjoy the lovely pool facilities as well.

We stayed here for 2 weeks at the end of May beginning of June and we loved it. We requested a room away from the main road but was told we had to pay extra, we told them the extra prices were too high and they gave us a room away from the main road in the annex at no extra cost. The breakfast buffet was always well presented however we prefer something hot and this was more breads and pastries so we only used about 3 times, we also didn't always get up in time as they stop serving at 10am. The pool and sun bed area was lovely, great views of mt Vesuvius on clear days and the staff were extremely friendly and welcoming. We really enjoyed the 20-25 minute walk to Sorrento as there are plenty of shops and bars along the way. Sorrento has great transport links if you don't hire out a car, the trains took us pretty much everywhere, we visited Pompeii, Vesuvius, Herculaneum, castellmare, Naples, and Rome even though we had to get another train from Naples to Rome. We hired out our own boat from grande marina at sorrento and went to Capri and positano. This was an amazing holiday and we loved it every minute of it and hotel girasole made this holiday very enjoyable for us.

Room Tip: Away from main road!

We stayed at the Hotel Girasole and found it to be a really nice little hotel. Location is good and it takes about 20 minutes walk to get into the heart of Sorrento. Hotel was clean, comfortable room with a really good shower. We opted for a garden room facing away from the road and although a little more expensive was well worth it as the hotel is on the main Naples to Sorrento road which is very busy and can be noisy. Good breakfast of cereals, meat, cheese, bread rolls, fruit, cakes, yoghart, orange juice, coffee and tea. We usually stay 4 star when we visit Sorrento but decided to give the Girasole a try and were not disappointed. We were on a B&B rate and ate in Sorrento every night and were impressed by all the restaurants. This is our 4th visit to Sorrento and we found the prices had risen quite dramatically since our last visit about 3 years ago. We took the boat to Positano (return) at a cost for two people 57 euro. One course lunch at Cafe Positano (with wine) again was 57 euro. Back in Sorrento if we stopped for a lager and a wine it was always 10 euros. One course meal in Sorrento with wine was coming in about 38 euro which wasn't too bad. Staff at the Girasole are very nice and will make you feel very welcome.

Room Tip: Pick a garden view room for peace and quiet. Also some rooms have attached balconies with no privac...
