Grand Hotel Angiolieri5.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
The hotel is not central and there is not much to do in the area but for relaxation it is perfect. The hotel staff are helpful and friendly and assisted in arranging day trips etc. Ate in the restaurant a couple of times and it was wonderful and the food was amazing - lovely waiting staff.
First of all: It IS a very nice hotel with a stunning view. Not nice neighbourarea, but nice hotel... Friendly staff. Nice rooms with well working wifi and comfy beds. Nice pool area. Also, always good restaurant recommendations from the staff. Nice with shuttle service. But, sorry but I have to say: Thats it. First: When we arrived the bathroom was not clean. Long, black hairs on toilet and walls! Also seal broke on the shampoo. Expensive, average food in the bar and tiny, expensive drinks. And, for the first time in my life - and at a hotel - i've experienced that the hotel wants you to PAY for scrambled eggs at breakfast, when you already have breakfast included in your stay! (it was free last time we visited the hotel - in 2015) No BIG deal - I can manage the 6-8 euros, but thats not good at all. You feel they are chasing your money...Then, one night we wanted to sit on our balcony and relax with a local wine and prosciutto. Not for saving the money, but for relaxing and enjoying local food/wine. The staff advised us there is no outside food or drink allowed in the rooms. Seriously?. I have never been told such nonsense on any other hotels in the world - so far. And at last; the 800-1000 euro! trip they recommend you to Capri is a rip off. No less. The public boat for 20 euros/pax from Positano to Capri - and then a private boat, with a nice trip a couple of hours (4 persons with own skipper) in a boat rented on Capri (there is a LOT of them) for around 150 euros is a MUCH better deal. Sorry about the «hard facts» Grand Hotel Angiolieri: We’ve been here before - but I guess this will be our last visit. Unfortunately.
The location and setting, the outstanding service, and the communal areas of this gorgeous hotel are no doubt 5*. Reception staff are mostly warm, inviting and personally show you around the hotel when you arrive. Any request we made for (i.e.) dinner reservations, taxis, laundry service were met with a polite 'consider it done' and it was ... with speed and low key efficiency in most cases. The bar staff especially friendly and welcoming, with the snacks served in the bar area ('le Bar') being tasty. As we found with much of Italy, food isn't the expense here, it's the drink prices that creep up the bill! To sit and watch the bay of Naples from this hilltop retreat was just lovely. The pool was just gorgeous, a small infinity pool with about 18 or 20 sumptious sun loungers around it. It's pretty special! The restaurant was much as you would expect for a high class establishment, beautiful views, food graciously presented, white linen everywhere and super efficient, discreet staff who ensure your glass doesn't ever go empty. They also threw in a couple of extra courses - an amuse bouche, a palate cleanser and some delicious peit fours at the end. The wine list was extensive and we managed to get a bottle on our second attempt (they didn't have our first choice). It's the bedrooms here that we struggled to distinguish as a 5* hotel although given this is an old Roma villa conversion, I assume it's a little bit restricted on what can be done with layout. The pros and cons (of our superior sea view room, in our opinion of a 5* hotel): PROS Clean Nice view of the bay of Naples and Vesuvius Gorgeous tiled floor Lovely fluffy robes and plenty of towels provided Air conditioning CONS Room size was small King size bed appeared to be two beds joined together - there was definately a divide of some description down the middle We could only find one useable plug socket for our appliances in the entire room The bathroom was perfectly functionable but the fittings were tired and in need of descaling Toiletries were a bit of a let down It's not that we didn't have a brilliant stay because we definitely did, I guess we just expected something a little bit special across the ENTIRE hotel for the 5* rating. FYI - the hotel didn't appear to be able to source a local taxi service for us for basic travel around the location, all was done with a local private firm - at 4 times the cost! (Despite a number of conversations with reception staff to try and get a cheaper option). I'd consider sourcing local transport yourself.
I think that Matteo is the best and most charmig barman in Italy.Always working and smiling. I asked him why he works so much..day and night..He answered... "I love my job...but I would like to be in your shoes.I smiled and said..."But I am having my flip-flops."He laughed and said ..."Just that's why". Hahaha
Great hotel overlooking the Bay of Naples. I've never met such helpful staff before. They went out of their way to help my wife and I enjoy our stay. Unfortunately our bagge was lost by Lufthansa but again the hotel came to the rescue with toothpasre, brushes and razors etc. Breakfast on the balcony overlooking the bay is a wonderful experience. If I could give eleven out of ten for our stay I would.
This 37 room/suite hotel looks out over the bay of Naples with soft breezes and beautiful sailboats dotting the vista, with Mt Vesuvius in the background. We originally booked the Junior Suite for 3 nights and enjoyed our stay so much, we cancelled our hotel in Rome at the tail end of our 12 day vacation so we could come back and enjoy our final days at this gorgeous resort. The rooftop, high-end restaurant offers free breakfasts (limited/no lunch) and has uncompromising dinners with a knowledgable sommelier and impressive wine list. We rarely wanted to leave the stunning, relaxing infinity pool but made the somewhat arduous trek down to the sea for exercise in the mornings (27 flights down and up per our iPhones). We are in the process of booking this resort again for next spring.
Hotel is about 20 minutes drive from sorrento (more when traffic is bad going into sorrento) and about 30 minutes from Pompeii. So this makes it a decent base for anyone looking to explore the region. Rooms are basic but clean and tidy and that's all you need. The pool area has a lovely view over the bay and it well stocked with towels. Breakfast is your usual continental but watch out as they charge you for cooked extras. The restaurant has lovely views over the bay. There is a car park in the basement is free of charge, which is ideal as you need a car if you are staying here. The pizza restaurant downstairs is in a lovely setting and very reasonably priced. The staff are really friendly and helpful. They offer a private boat service to Capri and around the islands which is decent value for 90 euros given the normal tourist ferry costs 40 euros return. Would definitely recommend this hotel as part of your tour of the amalfi coast regions !
It's a very nice hotel with great staff... breakfast with perfect view and quality... the room as well are nice and with great view... location is just outside Sorrento... place where to stay and come back
We enjoyed our stay here immensely in no small measure due to the friendly and helpful staff. Nothing was too much trouble. For example they organised taxi journeys at very advantageous rates which is important as some drivers in Sorrento have a reputation for overcharging for this service. Breakfast was pretty standard fare but lunch or dinner in the restaurant was top quality, served elegantly and in good time. The bar overlooking the infinity pool is open from 2pm to late and that offers good Italian and other food (e.g. burgers) and a wide range of drinks. The hotel sits above the small harbour of Seiano - which can be reached via fairly steep steps by the side of the hotel (although the long walk back up again may be difficult for older people and for anyone with disabilities) - and due to its unrivalled position the views towards Naples and Ischia are sensational. Access to the hotel by car is a little difficult due to narrow roads. Although Seiano looks quite close to the centre of Sorrento when viewed on a map, in reality the area is hilly and with heavy traffic the norm, a journey into town can take up to 30 minutes. The hotel taxi price is about 40 euro at most times one way or 50 euro after midnight. There is a train service from Seiano but it is limited in the evenings. We made some day trips direct from the hotel, including Positano & Amalfi one day and Capri on another, which were reasonable in price in part because the charge into town was absorbed as part of the tour cost. For anyone who likes an active night life such as is found in Sorrento the location of the Angiolieri may be a negative due to the taxi fares and time taken to travel to and from town. For others liking a quieter life the hotel location is a positive. We stayed in a garden room without seaview. Pricewise it was more at the budget end of the scale. The room was adequate but rather dated and it was in need of more plug sockets to cope with tablets, mobiles etc. The bathroom was small and had seen better days. The beds were ok but rather small with very firm mattresses. We didn't want to spend more time than was necessary in there. No doubt other larger seaview rooms would have been much nicer. The public rooms were nice and bright. All things considered we did not regard this as a true 5 star hotel but I have given it a 5 star rating here as we really loved it at the Angliolieri and would go back again without hesitation. This is due to the beautiful views, the lovely pool area (which isn't overcrowded), the food, ambience and the very special staff.
If your looking for a lovely hotel. just outside Sorrento, then this is one to look at. Its only a 10 minute train ride, and well away from the hustle and bustle. Its quiet, clean and the staff were very welcoming and extremely helpful. We had a garden room, although not big it was very comfortable, and the bathroom was excellent with a jacuzzi tub with shower above. Breakfast on the terrace, with amazing views of the bay of Napoli and Vesuvious . I would have liked tea / coffee facilities in the room, this would be my only criticism.
