We spent 4 nights here while exploring the Amalfi Coast. Our rooms were lovely and roomy with our room having a very large terrace with amazing views. At first I was concerned being a bit out of town but the shuttle bus is extremely efficient and the drivers amazing- Giovanni was a very experienced and safe driver on the windey roads of the area. I found the breakfast to be quite a good variety and the whole property is extremely clean. The pool looks lovely but it was not quite hot enough for swimming for us . I would definitely stay here again as it was so friendly- the staff are fantastic!
Most beautiful view over the bay and very efficient free coach transfer to and from the hotel . One member of staff was superb I think his name was Enzo he was attentive knowledgeable courteous. The hotel itself is clean and well appointed but is in need of a makeover in the reception areas and bedrooms . They are dated and slightly shabby. Pool was nice and lovely terrace. I asked if they could do something for my daughters birthday but nothing happened . I asked for a different room as the first was small and needed decorating in my opinion especially the balcony where the plaster was falling off. We were given another room which was slightly better .
If you are looking for value for money and a lovely place to stay this is the place , we had a great week the hotel is far enough away so you can relax in peace but close enough to the great atmosphere of serrento and all the trips , the bus drivers are so nice they can’t do enough to help and advise , there was no need for expensive taxis anywhere as the bus is free and collects outside the hotel door . The hotel is so clean the staff are lovely . This really is worth a stay .
Lovely family stay at this charming hotel. Set up on a hill overlooking Sorrento, our rooms had amazing views across the bay of Naples and of Mount Vesuvius. Food was adequate, typical hotel dining, we were on half board. We ate out wherever we were at lunchtimes to try some of the typical local Italian food. Hotel very clean and towels changed daily. Staff in the hotel were incredibly friendly and helpful with regard to local bus times, excursions etc. But the star of this hotel is definitely Toni in the restaurant! Friendly, funny and entertaining, nothing was too much trouble. If you are reading this Toni, a huge thank you from the 'Pogba family', you made our visit very enjoyable 'ciao, ciao, grazie mille!' You are very kind! We visited Positano and Amalfi using the local bus which was an experience! Next time when there are more boat trips running we'll probably go by sea. We got the hotel bus down to the station to catch the Positano bus. It gets very busy so allow plenty of time. In fact the whole area was a lot busier than I imagined, hoards of coach trips descend on the whole area even at this time of year. We enjoyed Positano the best. Also the peninsula of Massa Lubrense is well worth exploring, make it down to the beach at Marina del Cantone it's beautiful. There are several walks on this peninsula if you like walking. And it's a lot more peaceful! Get the train from Sorrento to Pompeii/Vesuvius. Ferry prices for return trip to Capri were around €40 each. The hotel bus service was great and we used it a few times during the day and also evening. The driver will also drop you near the train/bus station if you need it. Sorrento was much quieter in the evening and much more enjoyable when the hoards have gone. Tips: Hotel- book a room with a sea view. Take pool/beach towels with you as there is a charge of €2 per day for a hotel one. The rooms have a fridge for your personal use which is handy. No kettle in room so take your own if you like to make yourself a drink. Hotel bathroom provides soap and small shampoo bottles but no shower gel. Wifi in hotel is free and works fine. Tourist tax was €3 per person per day excluding children, payable in cash. If you go please say hi to Toni from Pogba family!! Thank you La Vue D'Or for a lovely stay.
Beautiful hotel. Spotlessly clean. Food fantastic. Cannot speak lightly enough of all the staff, very friendly and helpful at all times. Swimming pool with good seating area. Free shuttle bus daily to transfer to the centre of Sorrento. Highly recommended
This is the second time we have stayed at this hotel and we were not disappointed! Amazing views and super friendly staff where nothing is too much trouble! Can’t wait to return! A great base to visit lots of fantastic places, Sorrento, Pompei, Herculaneum, Mount Vesuvius and the Amalfi Coast to name a few - was too hot for us last time so spent most of the time in the local area and cooling down in the hotels pool, but this time was perfect for visiting all the amazing places!
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.
