Hotel Parco dei Principi
Ranked #37 of 100 Hotels in Sorrento
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 15 June 2017 via mobile

Stayed for a week in a Sea view room, well worth it, not sure rooms through the garden by the road would be quite as good. One of the best hotels we have stayed in over 40 years of travelling. Room was large, light, large balcony overhanging the ocean, well equipped, stunning views of Sorrento, Naples, Vesuvius etc, just beautiful.
Garden equally beautiful, very pretty and well kept. Didn't try swimming pool but went down to beach level a few times which was nice, with options to lounge on the beach, or terraces.
Breakfast excellent although buffet menu didn't change from day to day. Had dinner a couple of times, quite expensive and shame menu doesn't vary from day to day, however choice of restaurants within walking distance in Sorrento so not a big deal, restaurant and in fact all staff very good.
Free shuttle to Sorrento very generous and frequent, worth using although only a twenty minute walk, but was pretty hot so shuttle welcome.
Words cannot really describe how wonderful this hotel is, it is quite expensive but well worth the money and especially going for a sea view room.
Would thoroughly recommend this hotel

This hotel is absolutely beautiful. We booked a superior room with a sea view, and it was worth it! The view across the bay to Vesuvius is outstanding, and the cream was a firework display in the bay right in front of our veranda. The hotel is a twenty minute walk from sorrento( do not use a taxi 20 euros for a 1 mile journey). The breakfast was very nice and the staff were very helpful and friendly. Never used the pool but the platform by the sea was great.

I'd rate the amenities at this hotel 5 stars -- the private beach and pool are spectacular, the grounds are amazing. All of these overlook the ocean and have a completely breathtaking view. Also, we used the hotel's shuttle to go to the port. A nice amenity but a little cheap of them to charge 5 Euro or something for each use, in my opinion. It's a bit of a walk from central Sorrento but we were fine with that. Just know cabs in the area are a total rip-off so try to avoid taking one!

The rooms are decorated in a unique blue mid-century modern style. I get that and respect that it's unique (they say a lot of the current furniture is from when the hotel was originally built) but it's all done in a somewhat spare way, where the room and hallways feel a little basic for the amount of money that you're paying. (We had a "park view" in the main building...our guidebook told us the roadside building was even worse).

Stayed here several nights on a Perillo tour. Easily the nicest property we experienced on our two-week tour. Perched high on a cliff side, this amazing hotel offers stunning, unobstructed, 180-degree, East-to-West views of Mount Vesuvius and the Bay of Naples. Enjoy them from either the open-air terrace or glassed in dining area. Any time of day makes for great photography and the perfect ambiance for enjoying a wine spritz!

Room Tip: If on an organized tour, do NOT expect to receive a room with a view.

My husband and I stayed here for two nights on our first trip to Italy in May 2017. The hotel is very mid-century modern with great decor. The staff was very helpful, especially the bartender. We had afternoon coffee both days on the veranda around sunset looking over the beautiful ocean and it was definitely a sight to see. The room was spacious, my only complaint is that the tub is very awkward, I almost fell getting in to it so be careful! The center is very narrow when trying to shower. If you're coming to Italy for the first time, be warned that they do not have irons/ironing boards in the hotel rooms, so pack a travel iron or plan to have wrinkle-free clothing. Otherwise, you have to send down for something to be pressed. Hotel has shuttle service that will take you close to the city center, or you can walk. We did both. Overall, this hotel was a great deal for the money.

Room Tip: If available, get an ocean view. The views are amazing.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Five-star accommodation and a prime location sat high on the ancient rampart of tufa, the Parco dei Principi is a testament to the timeless creativity of Gio Ponti, one of the most enlightened advocates of Italian architecture of the 20th century.Between the blue sea of Sorrento Coast and the lush greenery of the botanical gardens, Paul Leopold of Bourbon, the princes of Cortchacow and the entourage of the Russian aristocracy fell in love with this incomparable natural scenery, giving it a solemn historical heritage.Minimal atmosphere and space characterises the 96 rooms with original furnishings designed by Gio Ponti and customized specifically for the Hotel: the famous headboard-beds (1948), toilet set 'Vanity' with circular mirrors (1950), the chair 'Lightweight' (Cassina, 1952) and large fitted wardrobes. A variety of ceramic floors - as many as rooms - in shades of blue and white, in antique Majolica D'Agostino from Salerno, to reflect the colours of the sea and sky of Sorrento: moons, circles, triangles, stars and leaves are also used to tell a different story in every room.At the Restaurant Gio Ponti, a spectacular window over the Gulf of Naples and its islands, the day starts with a grand breakfast. Through striking tunnels in the rock, you arrive at the private beach or at the equipped solarium on the cliff. The pier is home during the summer months to the restaurant Poggio Siracusa where you can enjoy the fresh offerings of the sea accompanied by the sounds of the waves below.Among the horizon, the ancient oaks and the rare trees essences of the enormous botanical park, there is a seawater swimming pool designed by Gio Ponti as 'a mirror of water to wood nymphs'.To restore harmony to the body and spirit, guests can access the Fitness & Beauty Center of the Hotel, the charming majolica rooftop terrace with a view, and the marbled terrace of Villa Cortchacow dating back to the eighteenth century, on which the first ballerina performed to the Court of St. Petersburg.Since 2012, the lobby, with the incredible view of the Gulf has hosted the 'Museum of the Opera', an exhibition of original drawings and furniture in the rooms and in the common areas that have marked the history of Italian design.The business center of the hotel offers several meeting rooms with complimentary Wi-Fi and innovative technology: from the classic style of Sedowa hall with a terrace overlooking the sea, to the most modern modular Leonardo hall, surrounded by the garden Bourbon, with a seat capacity of 350. The outdoor areas offer a pleasant alternative for coffee breaks, lunches and dinners.Within the enchanting scenery of Monti Lattari sloping terraces lined with citrus, Parco dei Principi is an excellent location for pleasant walks through the typical craft shops and luxury shopping streets in the center of Sorrento, and for excursions to the nearby Amalfi Coast, the island of Capri and the archaeological sites of Pompeii and Herculaneum. ... more   less
