Hotel Bristol  

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 a wonderful time at the Bristol. So handy for walking into Sorrento lived the food and the views were amazing. There was an opera singer 1 night during our stay who was fabulous. Our room was on the second floor overlooking the bay and it was perfect.More

Jennifer F,

Great location and facitiles but food let it down dreadfull vegetarian food

The hotel couldn't be faulted for it location with views over the sea, mount Vesuvius and the town below. We were a little concerned about the busy road in front but once in bed with the shutters down we soon nodded off and the traffic didn't bother us. The hotel only does Half board and that's where my issues come in. Every morning the dinner menu is displayed so you can look and decided if you are doing lunch or dinner which is a great idea, but as the weather was so poor with heavy rain and thunder storms we ended staying in every night as a taxi was a rip off into town . The idea is your have a choice of main and desserts and a buffet starter which is a great idea. However I don't eat meat and my only option every night was Cheese !! . The first night I had grilled hallumi which I like but it was the size of my hand served on a green shiney leaf and some crisps and a portion of veg on the side. Another night was a cheese tart again with crisps . I wouldnt expect this from a 3 star and especially in a country known for its good food. If the weather had of been dry they wouldn't have seen us at dinner at all. The hotel has fantastic facilities with the roof pool.and bar and lovely gardens. The staff were great and coped with the odd powers cut , the evening music was good and welcome on a rainy night and the view is marvellous . I would return to this hotel but only if they did b and b as I wouldn't want another evening meal of cheese and crisps , that has to be sorted surely !! More


Two families with teenagers

Excellent experience with very helpful staff. Hotel is a bit of a steep walk from town so wouldn't be convenient for guests with reduced mobility. The rooms and service was fantastic however the range of breakfast could've been bette. Overall a fabulous stay however.More

Emma P,


We had a room on the second floor facing the bay. Oh my goodness! What a view! And our own private balcony. Lovely sunsets and sun rises. I would just look at the scenery for hours. Loved the church bell clock tolling every 15 minutes - so serene! The room was fabulous. The room we got was just off the elevator (205??). All tile in the room, with the double bed facing the window with a view. WiFi is available, and turned out to be be the most reliable on this trip (but no signal in the dining room.) Room was appointed with a refrigerator that housed nice drinks. I recommend the Zonin Prosecco. By this time, we both needed use of the laundry facilities. Though pricey, it was worth getting our whites laundered, dried hung and iron. Yes, IRONED! Staff was very courteous. There are many quaint little shops within walking distance an we spent out free time going in and out. It is an area of great food, so unloosen the belt and enjoy. Look up Luigi De Martino when you are there. He is a taxi driver, and took us higher up into the mountains, and we enjoyed the best lunch we ever had at a local farm (we had to tell them to STOP bringing out food!). The breakfast was typical American fare, juice, coffee, pastries, cereal, fruits, eggs and Italian bacon. Service was above par. Had the pleasure of dining there one night. High quality all around - everything was delicious. Front desk likes you the leave your key when you go out. No problem. The charge for the Prosecco was reasonable. My only criticism is the our stay was not longer.More

Breathtaking Views

We arrived at night so I didn't see the view until the next morning. I was speechless when I pulled back the curtain! Nothing could prepare me for the beautiful and breathtaking view from my balcony! One of my travel companions said he was so surprised, he ran out on the balcony in his underwear. My room was clean and the bed was super comfortable with nice linen that didn't feel scratchy. Unlike a lot of European hotels, face cloths were provided for guests. (Tip-If you bring your own face cloths make sure they're not white so they won't be confused with the hotel's). Male and female slippers were also provided which was a nice bonus. The hotel only provides one serving of coffee and tea for the in room coffee maker. Extras are provided for a fee. The Bristol is in a great location and close enough for a 5-10 minute walk into town. The area is safe and I felt comfortable walking alone at night. The only negative about the hotel is the restaurant. There was limited choice and the service was less than friendly. I would rate the restaurant as below average. Regardless, the view made up for any deficiencies!More
