Our room had a balcony with views of Mt. Vesuvius--highlight for us! The pool and sunbathing area was extensive but we never made it out there as we only stayed for a few days and used the shuttle daily to go down the mountain into town. The hotel is up the road quite a ways, but the shuttle is free and runs frequently enough. The hotel restaurant was excellent--incredible dishes and fabulous service from the staff. The Gorgonzola gnocchi is a personal favorite of mine. Pricing was reasonable on dishes and house wine. You could make "reservations" for a specific table (optional balcony dining as well) but it was a bit confusing to us on how it worked. The hotel was lovely, if a bit dated. I would recommend though for the view, along with the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff.
This is a lovely quiet little hotel on the hills overlooking Sorrento. The fact that it is up on the hillside is the reason it is a nice quiet place but means that to get into Sorrento itself to shop or go to the beach you need to use the free shuttle bus. This, however, is no problem as they are very regular and it is only around a 15 minute ride and they run up to 23.30, though there is a 3 hour break during the day without a service so plan accordingly. You can walk to and from the hotel to Sorrento and me and my son walked back one day as it was during the 3 hour break, but it is very steep and can be a bit much on a hot day. Once in Sorrento you have easy access to all the surrounding sights such as Naples, Herculaneum and Pompeii by the Circumvesuviana Train service which run very regularly. We went to all three and I can thoroughly recommend both Pompeii and Herculaneum though Naples was a disappointment. You can also take a ferry to Capri or Naples, and there are many boat trips you can book either to Capri or along the Amalfi coast. We took a trip along the Amalfi coast which was beautiful with stops in Positano and Amalfi for sightseeing and shopping, as well as stops to swim. Sorrento itself is a lovely little town with many restaurants and bars of all types and a large market area for souvenirs. As for the hotel itself. The rooms are nice and clean and looked after every day. Our room was quite large with plenty of storage including a safe, a dressing table, and a balcony overlooking the pool with a table and chairs and even at the time of year we went it were nice and cool in the evening. The food in the restaurant is varied and tasty. The pool at the time of year we went was a nice temperature and not too crowded with plenty of sun loungers both around the pool itself and on the upper sun deck. You can hear a bit of noise at night or in the morning from your neighbours and the pipes but nothing bad. The staff are very friendly and helpful and all speak very good English. You can use the free Wi-Fi throughout the hotel, though you have to keep constantly logging back in, but its fast enough. And the main selling point of the hotel is the views over Sorrento, Vesuvius and the bay of Naples which are stunning and in my opinion make the small price of a bus trip to town well worth it. All in all this is a lovely place to stay and we had a great time.
Saw this lovely hotel whilst driving to Positano and decided to drop in for dinner that night. Sat out on the deck with a view over the Bay & Sorrento to kill for and ordered pre -dinner drinks which we enjoyed. Then when I asked about ordering Dinner Found out it wasn't till 8 pm , over an hour & half later !! Sadly, that was our cue to exit, stage left !
Hotel La Vue d'Or, Sorrento Our trip to Sorrento was by local train from Orvieto to Rome, where we switched to a high speed train to Naples. In Naples we switched to the Circumvesuviana Train which goes from Naples, past Pompeii, terminating in Sorrento. You reach the Circumvesuviana Train by going from the station at which you arrive in Naples and walking downstairs to the Circumvesuviana Train Terminal (look online for directions). The Circumvesuviana Train was rumored to have lots of problems with pickpockets. We had no issues with that and didn’t hear of anyone that did, just be careful and observant. After arriving in Sorrento, there’s a 1-km walk from the train terminal to Piazza Antiche Mura where you get the bus that takes you up the mountain to Hotel La Vue d'Or. The bus is supposed to run every half hour but the day we arrived we waited about a ½ hour past the scheduled time before it arrived. The bus serves not only the Hotel La Vue d'Or but three other hotels on the hillside. We did wait an hour past the scheduled pickup time once, but other times it was right on schedule. The trip is about another ½ hour from Piazza Antiche Mura to the hotel. The hotel is just as you see it on the webpages. It has a nice pool, a bar in the lobby, a very large lobby with lots of seating, an on-site restaurant and lots of outside seating to see the beautiful views. Our room had a queen sized bed, in-suite bathroom and a veranda overlooking the hillside (Valley View), if you looked around the corner a bit you could see the ocean. The room was very clean and neat and the internet was good. The breakfast was more than adequate but didn’t match our tastes. We paid $150.00/night. The employees were very nice and most spoke excellent English. During our three nights in Sorrento we traveled to Pompeii one day, which was a really interesting experience. We took the Circumvesuviana Train to Pompeii and met up with a Rick Steves tour group that we signed up for on-line. The group was about 15 people and we paid 15 euro/each for the guide and 12 euro/each to get in the site. Pompeii is much larger than I had envisioned and there is still a large unexcavated area there that is not yet explored. This is a great tour. After returning to Sorrento that evening we had dinner at Inn Bufalito in Sorrento, which was recommended in Rick Steves book and it was excellent. The next day we took a ferry from Sorrento to Capri and then boarded a local bus to travel from there to Anacapri. In Anacapri we got on a chairlift and took it to the top of the mountain. It was a nice day and a beautiful trip. The views from the top are stunning. We reversed course to return to Sorrento. That evening we had dinner at the Old Sorrento Marina at a place called Porta Marina Seafood, which was also recommended by Rick Steves. This was one the best meals we had on our trip and moderately inexpensive (50 euro total) for the dishes we had, which were fresh caught lobster pasta and wine for my wife and fresh caught seafood pasta (calamari, langostino, shrimp, clams and mussels) and beer for me. This is a family run restaurant, located right on the water. On the third day we headed back to Rome. On to San Piettro Candia 25, Rome.
Spotlessly clean and looking like new, this hotel has well-sized rooms and comfortable beds. The restaurant offers a wide selection of good food and always includes vegetarian options and often local dishes. The road to the hotel from the town has no footpath and so is not safe to walk, but the free shuttle bus is easy to use and operates from about 8am to 11pm with a midday break. The views from the dining room or the terrace of the coast, town and Vesuvius are reason enough to choose this hotel. Every member of staff seems to speak English and be polite, friendly and helpful. I cannot fault this hotel in any way.
We stayed in Sept2017. First visit here. Staff were excellent nothing was too much trouble. The location was exactly what we asked for. Quiet location but within easy reach of the main town via the courtesy bus. Choose of menu for dinner....well don't think we had the same dish twice. Really recommend and we have rebooted already for next Sept.
Thomson package. Nice Hotel, room with pleasant staff. Breakfast was good considering it was ‘continental’. However, the seasonal fresh vegatables at dinner down seemed anything but fresh and one meal we had spanish omellette served with fish as a substitute for potatoes. After dinner the bar lounge was absolutely ‘dead’. Mangement seem content to ignore this. Can I suggest a few middle of the road pop songs for an hour instead of the dreary background music? You can’t upset anyone because there’s nobody there to upset! A 10-11pm happy hour at the bar might help, just a slight upgrade on the drinks eg. A large beer for the price of a medium beer or a free mixer with a double spirit. Better to sell a lot at a small profit than none at all! The Thomson excursions are extortionate. Instead you can access Pompei from the rail/bus station which is 10 minutes walk from the free shuttle drop off. The shuttle driver will probably drop you off there if you ask him. E4.80 return + E13 entrance fee. Buying Pompei ticket online will avoid any queques although there may be a booking fee. Otherwise only buy tickets inside the railway station and inside the Pompei complex unless you really want a guided tour. For a free audio tour – google Rick Steve on the net. Heraculum and Naples can also be accesssed by train. Positrano and the Amalfi coast are an inexpensive ride from the bus station. Best to go to Amalfi bus station from Positrano to come back to Sorrento as buses are liable to be full at peak times. Positrano is very steep. Capri is E38 return by ferry that is walking distance from the shuttle drop off. Its E2 per bus journey once you’re there. The Augustus gardens in Capri town are well worth a visit.
Thank goodness for the amazing views from this hotel since it is located at least a 25 minute shuttle ride to the town of Sorrento. The staff here are all related and very nice, service was awesome but again you are stuck with what they have to offer. There are no stores or restaurants nearby to stroll to so unless you want to shuttle you are stuck there. The menu is limited as does appear to cater to patrons who have purchased a certain type of package. If you have any dietary issues this could be a problem. The breakfast buffet was well maintained and plentiful. The rooms are cleaned and well maintained. There is a mini safe in the room.
We have just come back from a fortnights stay in this beautiful part of Italy, the views from the hotel were out of this world. We had 2 room 653 and 660 looking out onto bay, we had nature at its best. ROOMS WERE CLEANED daily. We were half board breakfast was buffet style. You are given a table with your room number to sit at every evening, but you can sit outside if you wish for your breakfasy taking in the stunning view of Vesuvius and the bay of Naples. Its got a minbar in room if you want to use, we just used our own in fridge. The pool is in a lovely well situated part of hotel.
Stayed in La Vue D'Or from the 14th till 21st of October. As the name implies, the view from the hotel, over the bay on Naples, to Vesuvio and Napoli beyond are simply breathtaking, not just nice, breathtaking... Check in was easy and simple, given the card for the room, one floor up the magnificent marble staircase. Room was really nice, however on opening the patio door, I was kinda horrified to be looking directly onto somebodys else's patio, and I don't mean metres away, an adjoining, patio, directly facing the one in my room, to have stayed in the room you would really need to be facing a family member, otherwise it was useless, sorry... However, I went directly down to reception and complained, and the lovely young lady found us a alternative room immediately, overlooking the sundeck and the pool. It was perfect.. and so is the rest of the hotel. The staff are unbelievably friendly, from the cleaning ladies to the barstaff, nothing is too much trouble. In terms of location, yes, it is kinda far from Sorrento, but it's absolutely ideal that its ever only ten minutes by bus away, so even although its half way up a mountain, its the perfect location, in my very humble estimation.. Breakfast is really nice, from corn flakes to lemon cornettos, and everything in between, my own tiny little complaint is the coffee machine, great coffee, but it takes ages, and there is always a queue. please, get another coffee machine... Again dinners are varied and enjoyable, 5 starters, 5 main courses and always a vegetarian option, and 5 sweets. Please remember the food is of Italian origin, so don't expect typically English food, enjoy the difference! Bus to Sorrento, as many have said before me in once an hour, every hour, with a little gap for siesta, or whatever it is in Italian, And as for Sorrento, I don't think I've ever visited a more compact, prettier and friendly place in my life, It has a restaurants, and a bar and a limoncello shop on every corner, and there are dozens of corners, just go... Through the hotel we enjoyed a fabulous boat trip, from a little harbour on the coast, to Amalfi and Positano, stunning villages perched on the side of the Amalfi mountains, E50, and fabulous value for money, with a history and geography lesson thrown in, great day out.. Visited Pompeii, herculanium and climbed Vesuvius, all via the local train line, the hotel bus drops you at the station to catch the Circumvusuvio?? and all for 4euro returns, but do get a guided tour once you get to Pompeii or Herculanium, its around ten euros, but well worth it Buon giornata!
