Standout views. Three stylish restaurants. And a glamorous pool scene. It’s no wonder so many guests return to the Hotel Bristol year after year.
Perched on a cliff above Marina Grande, this family-run hotel is in a prime position for some of Sorrento’s best views. What’s more, it’s just a 10-minute downhill walk into the heart of town.
Bedrooms here are elegantly styled. Big beds take centre stage, while painted floor tiles and brightly coloured soft furnishings add a chic but homely feel.

We had three sea view terrace rooms (all doubles) for 7 people -- we added an extra bed in one. The rooms were huge with comfortable beds and very clean, the bathrooms were spacious, and the terraces were very large with truly spectacular panoramic views of the Bay of Naples. The wifi worked well. Because we were there off-season in early March, the gorgeous hotel was mostly empty and we always had a breakfast table right by the huge picture windows with the view of the Bay and town below. The staff was lovely, the big breakfast buffet was lovely, the whole experience was lovely!! They told us that come April 1 they would be completely booked until October with close to 300 guests everyday. There were 30 when we were there. It's about a 10-15 minute walk down the hill on a sidewalk by the busy road into the town of Sorrento. We visited Herculaneum (Ercolano Scavi) and Pompei while we were there. Again we had the advantage of no crowds, especially at Herculaneum, by being there off season. The stay here was the highlight of our trip trough Italy. I hope that we can stay there again someday!

Nice and quiet hotel fabolous to relaxing and walking around the gardens good atmosphere and great staff was take care about you the spa is amazing the swimming pools as well the view for my room is fantastic....More
This was our 4th visit to the Bristol and we had a junior suite which was fabulous. I found the Bristol on the first visit to Sorrento and would not stay anywhere else. The hotel is lovely and the views are as amazing as other visitors have described. I am surprised by the mixed reviews for the food as I have always enjoyed it but I understand it is down to personal taste. What sets the hotel apart is its staff - the service from the reception, bar and restaurant staff is excellent and I have always found all to be very friendly, professional and extremely helpful. It is also good to see so many familiar faces each time I return. For me, Sorrento is the perfect destination and the Bristol the best place to stay.More
A truly amazing hotel
I spent two wonderful weeks in this glorious hotel last summer and absolutely loved every minute. Its location is simply stunning, with panoramic views across the Bay of Naples to Vesuvius in the distance. The rooms are spacious and luxurious and the decor throughout the hotel is beautiful. The terraces and grounds are all immaculately kept and offer comfortable and peaceful havens to relax and enjoy the surroundings, whether at the poolside soaking up the sunshine, or under a shady tree in the garden. There is a real sense of history and tradition at this hotel, the staff are warm, welcoming & highly professional, and they all demonstrate a great sense of pride in the service they provide.The restaurant offers a superb choice of cuisine, with very well prepared and excellently presented dishes, guaranteed to suit all tastes. The main evening bar is a glorious room, ideal for pre dinner drinks and later evening relaxation. The bar also has a long terrace / balcony that is perfect for sitting out late evening under the stars in the warm night air, while enjoying a glass or two of your preferred tipple! I really could not find fault with this hotel and have subsequently recommended to friends who have stayed and also thoroughly enjoyed the experience. I will definitely be returning and cannot recommend highly enough!More
We stayed in the Bristol for our honeymoon in September. Could not recommend this hotel more highly-fantastic staff, lovely food and breath taking views. Hope to return some day- loved every minute! Many thanks to the staff who made our stay here so special. More
