Maison La Minervetta
Ranked #1 of 100 Hotels in Sorrento
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 7 April 2012

Our first visit to this part of Italy. What a fabulous hotel - glorious views of Vesuvius, a short walk into the centre of Sorrento. Very caring people running and working in the hotel. Great breakfast in the sunshine on the terrace soaking up the views. Only B&B available. Top of the price range for available facilities.

Reviewed 2 April 2012

We spent two nights here in March. The rooms have fabulous views of the Bay of Naples through huge picture windows. The closet had real hangers. There was a minibar, safe, TV, free wifi, lots of books, very firm mattress, good vanity space in the bathroom, vanity mirror, kleenex, robe, slippers, and all the amenities except mouth wash. Curiously, our room #2 was missing a desk chair and we had to move the lounging chair around to the desk. There was no full length mirror in the room, but one in the hall, and no bathroom stool.
There is a small parking lot on the top of the hotel. Breakfast is wonderful and it was warm enough for us to eat out on the terrace. You can ask for eggs however you want them. There are juices, cereals, cakes, jams, ham, cheese, cookies, tarts, breads, the usual Italian-style breakfast that keeps you going for several days. The hotel has a "bar" for afternoon refreshments, although we did not use it.
One thing that might bother people is the church in Sorrento below the hill on which this hotel is perched. The bells ring all night on the quarter hour. Some guests were complaining about this at breakfast. Another potential disadvantage compared to other places where we have stayed in Sorrento is the absence of a restaurant. However, the hotel is an easy 10 - 15 minute walk to downtown Sorrento and a short, but expensive (20 euro) cab ride from the dock. (We took the boat from Naples to Sorrento and then rented a car when we left to continue our journey.) Also, right down the hill is a handy laundromat open from 8am - 10pm.
This hotel would be a very romantic place for a honeymoon stay or for staying on the Amalfi Coast and doing day trips to Capri, Positano, Naples, etc.

Room Tip: I can't imagine there being any rooms in this hotel that are not good!! Be aware of the church...

This was my first trip to Sorrento and I did quite a lot research before booking my hotel. I'm a bit of a hotel snob and I was pleasantly surprised. The hotel is sylish and clean and the views are amazing. I stayed in a Junior Suite and it was worth it!

We absolutely loved Maison La Minervetta! We arrived in Sorrento after having spent 4 days in Paris. I didn't think anything or anywhere could compare, but it did. It is such a beautifully designed hotel with unique and gorgeous decor. It has such character! The owner has impeccable taste. The view from our room was breathtaking. Floor to ceiling windows revealed the gorgeous coast. The service was wonderful and you felt right at home. Breakast every morning was perfect and such an experience. We would love to come back and spend more time.
