“A good place to stay in Sorrento”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 March 2012

I have just returned from a 7 day Sorrento holiday with a friend. We had our own bedrooms at Sorrento City. The hotel and rooms were very clean, the rooms good, mine may have been a bit small if 3 people were sharing. My balcony looked out onto a wall, but as I was out all day it didn't matter. My friend's looked out onto the street which was much nicer, she also had a fridge and I didn't, but I had a bidet and she didn't - good to wash your feet in at the end of the day!
The staff were very friendly and extremely helpful, and English speaking - we seemed to have questions every day about where we were going but they were always willing to help. Breakfast was plenty - cereal, meat, cheese, bread, cake, and fruit. The dining room really pretty and the lobby bright and stylish.
The location was brilliant, about 3 minutes walk from the bus and train station and as soon as you walk out of the hotel you are in the town.
There is a supermarket next door, a lovely, friendly reasonably priced restaurant next door to David's lovely icecream parlour just around the corner, ? first/second turning on the right as you turn right out of the hotel.
The bus station had buses going various places including the airport - cost 10 euros, and Amalfi - a day ticket cost 7.20 euros. The train goes to Naples, you can get off for Pompei, and further along the line for Herculaneum and Vesuvius. If you are short on time choose Herculaneum rather than Pompei.
I don't think I would ever risk driving a car along the roads, the drivers are crazy, watch out if you croosing the road, and hold your breath on the bus journeys, better than any fairground ride.
Places I would recommend visiting - Herculaneum, pay for a guide if possible, Vesuvius - be prepared to be shattered at the top, Pompei - need a guide to get the best from the visit, Capri -beautiful, the Amalfi drive from Sorrento to Amalfi - unbelievable, Positano - beautiful, get the shuttle bus back up unless you are a "mountain goat!" - 1.20 euros, the lemon grove garden in Sorrento turn right out of the hotel, cross over the road, about a 10 minute walk along the road, a lovely oasis in the middle of a busy town. In fact the whole holiday was fantastic with only one afternoon of rain.
We had a great time, and hopefully will return again, and would certainly use Sorrento City again.

Room Tip: Ask if you can have a room looking over the main street and have a fridge.

The hotel is in the center of the city, which we loved. Even though in the center, with the door closed it was not too loud. Had a nice balcony for each room. Wi-fi worked well for us since we were right above the reception, but they told us it may not work in the room. Breakfast was decent. The room worked well for us.

This was our first time at this hotel though we have been visiting Sorrento every year for the past 10 years. The warmth of the welcome and the pleasant manner of all the staff was delightful. The hotel is very reasonably priced and clean and the foyer was a great place to people watch.There is free wifi and the lobby computer was reasonably priced. The location was really great and the convenience of the supermarket next door was very good. it closes at 9 pm and there was no noise from it nor from the cinema on the other side.
We were a party of 5 adults and one child sharing 2 triple rooms. We would have been better with 3 twin rooms as it felt very crowded and there is little storage space. One room did not have a fridge as promised, but there was no room for it anyway.
The continental breakfast was OK if you could eat wheat, but as one our party could not and the fruit on offer was uninspiring and the yoghurts watery, she brought in her own from the supermarket next door, which was not a problem.
We would go again without a doubt but with different room arrangements. I can really recommend it for an inexpensive way to experience this lovely and historic area.

We just came back from a 2 week vacation in Italy, and I most certainly had to write about each of our 4 hotels. First up was Hotel Sorrento City. Having read a lot of the reviews on TripAdvisor, I would say you really get a real overall view of this hotel, and most importantly, they were pretty spot on. Sorry if this review is long, but if we're similar type of travelers some of this info may help :)

Location -
Sorrento was our first stop in Italy, and the first impression could not have been better.
The hotel itself was so lovely. This was the last week of December, and the holidays could still be felt. A huge Christmast Street in the center of the town, and the bright christmas lights still strung on the street. The weather was brisk in December, but nothing unmanageable. The hotel is perfectly situated at the end of the circumvesuviana line, and such a short walk from the train station. My husband and I wheeled our luggage right off, and took the directions the hotel gave us and were there within a 5 minute walk. I have to say the location was perfect. Hotel Sorrento City is located right on the main shopping street. So if you like the convenience of walking left or right outside of the hotel for a bite, or coffee, this is a great place. We got a great room facing the street so we were lucky to have holiday lights still up and shining down the street. So beautiful.

Staff & Hotel -
The staff - Yolanda, especially were wonderful. They were all English speaking and had great recommendations on restaurants, and what sights to see in 3 days. The rooms were small (typical for Europe though), but very clean. The continental breakfast is just enough to get you started for the day - juice, coffee, toast, deli meats, and yogurt.

Sights -
Capri - short walk down to the hydrofoil (boat that takes you to Capri) - you'll really need a tour once you get to the island, as it's not that easy to get around. But the 4 hour bus tour is totally worth it!
Positano & Amalfi - walk back to the train station where you'll get on the bus.
Takes under an a hour for the stop at Positano, but head to Amalfi (another 45 minutes) first then head back to Positano on your way back to Sorrento.
You won't really need a tour as the busy drops and picks you up right in the towns. These two picturesque coastal towns are so worth visiting. But the star is the bus driving. It's insane how the drivers maneuver this bus through the narrow curves where there are no rails!
Pompeii Ruins - This was our last day before we headed to Rome. We packed up and got on the train. About 25 minutes to Pompeii and you can store your luggage near the cafe at the train station for about 3Euros per piece. The Ruins were quite a site. You'll really appreciate the history!

The location of this hotel is great. It's very close to the bus station and train station . It's also on the main street. The relationship of the staff is very hot , nice and friendly . They are ready to help in every moment in every subject we had questions about . The hotel is small, beautiful and very comfortable.
