More traditional than trend-setting, this 85-room hotel in the heart of Sorrento offers a haven from the buzz of the city, whether you’re chilling by the rooftop pool or sipping espresso in the leafy garden terrace planted with lemon and orange trees. Some rooms feature balconies, frescos, 18th century tiles and marble bathrooms, while the restaurants – including O’ Parrucchiano, a short stroll from the hotel – dish up traditional Sorrentine dishes like the rolled pasta classic cannelloni (originally called “Strascinati”.) Gather with other guests for sunset cocktails on the roof terrace, which overlooks Mount Vesuvius and the Bay of Naples.
In the Area
Start at the Chiesa di San Francesco (Church of St. Francis), where you can stroll past bougainvillea-clad walls to the Arabic portico and arches of the cloisters. There are also concerts in summer and regular art exhibitions: contact the tourist office for tickets and information. Cook up a storm of Sorrentine specialties at Tofani cooking school, where you can learn to whip up pasta, ragu and fish dishes like mama used to make. For spectacular views of this iconic coastline, trek some of the 150 miles of trails along the Sorrento and Amalfi coast with a variety of guided hikes.
How to Get There
The hotel is situated in the heart of Sorrento whilst also being close to Grand Marina with its excellent sea food restaurants.
A typically Italian hotel full of marble and frescoes to be admired.
The breakfast was beautifully laid out and made a very satisfactory start to the day.
The staff were helpful and courteous and the general cleanliness was excellent.
Although our visit was at the end of the season, October, you still got the impression from the staff that they could more than handle the busier times.
All in all, one to recommend.
What a beautiful hotel! Great personnel in all areas of the property. Immaculate, treat yourself when you are in Sorrento, you will not regret it! The location is perfect, maybe a 100' from the Bay of Naples with beautiful scenery and great views of Mount Vesuvius. Just a 5 minute walk to Piazza Tasso the town center of Sorrento. Shopping and restaurants galore. Don't miss La Favorita Parrecchiano Restaurant on Corsa Italia, the most beautiful garden restaurant you will ever see.
