The 252-room Grand Hotel Vesuvio is a big, mid-range chain hotel a mile outside of Sorrento. The hotel offersbeautiful views of the Bay of Naples and Mount Vesuvius. There’s a lovely garden with a wisteria covered pergola and a big outdoor swimming pool with a hot tub, snack bar, and children’s pool. The restaurant has panoramic views and a bar with terrace seating, but for an advertised four-star property, rooms are bland and furnishings are in need of an upgrade. The hotel has three meeting rooms and caters to organized groups.
“Location” is the element that comes up again and again in reviews of this fairly modest hotel; indeed, there are few places in Sorrento that are as centrally located. Hotel Michelangelo is located on the Corso Italia, one of the main roads leading in and out of Sorrento, and a short block away from the train station. Piazza Tasso, the town center, is a six-minute walk from the hotel. Rooms here are spotless, but they can be very small, somewhat basic, and potentially in need of repairs. The restaurant does not get high marks from most guests, though the proximity of the hotel to a variety of dining choices means it is easy to eat elsewhere. Generally, Hotel Michelangelo seems to be a solid point of departure for those wishing to be close to the action in Sorrento.
The 142-room Bristol Hotel near the center of Sorrento is a popular choice for events, as well as for groups. It consists of three large concrete buildings; common areas are plain and slightly formal, with inlay marble floors and mirrored elevator doors. While the front of the hotel overlooks a street, the back abuts a cliffside overlooking the Tyrrhenian Sea. Many of the hotel’s facilities, including the multiple restaurants, pool, and rooftop bar, take full advantage of the spectacular views afforded by this position. Rooms are spacious and most provide sweeping views, but decor varies widely -- some are a touch dated and unfinished while others are appealing and modern.
