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.

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

Fantastic views over Bay of Naples

What a great hotel to stay at. Loads of character and the views across Sorrento and the Bay of Naples are stunning. The hotel sits high above Sorrento Marina Grande with views from most of the rooms and in particular the two restaurants. My advice would be to go to breakfast early to take one of the tables by the windows. What a start to the day. Everything about the hotel is good. Rooms good sized, clean and comfortable. The staff are helpful and attentive and most speak English (with an attractive Italian accent). The food is wonderful. The best way of getting to Sorrento town from the hotel is to walk although. It is mainly flat on and takes about 10-15 minutes to get to the centre. There is a local bus service but this can be a little erratic.More

Joseph L,


You pay a little more to stay in this hotel but it is money well spent. The service is fantastic & so is the food I would highly recommend staying here. It also has a roof top pool looking on to the volcano & a piano bar. I would recommend swapping your dinner for lunch every second night so you get to try lots of the restaurants in the town. Fantastic place & very romantic Try & get a room with a view.More

James M,

Treated like Royalty

Stayed at the Bristol in Sorrento for 10 nights in early October on a half board basis. The hotel is situated on a hill just above the Marina Grande, overlooking Sorrento and the beautiful Bay of Naples. The views from our room were spectacular and we spent much time looking out. The service in the hotel, from every person, is impeccable. The cuisine is outstanding. The hotel is just far enough out of the centre to miss the crowds, but near enough to stroll. We could not fault this hotel for anything and look forward to a future stay.More
