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.

A Great Hotel

The Hotel is very clean and nicely fitted out. The meals were inclusive and, although not exciting, were of such a standard it was not worth going out to eat. The Rooms were also excellently kitted out, but I would certainly recommend the extra for a balcony view of the coast, it was tremendous. Enjoy!More

Michael T,

Fantastic hotel

My husband and I stayed here on our first trip to sorrento. We were not disappointed... It's location is perfect over looking sorrento and mount Vesuvius. Only a five minute walk down to the town centre which has some amazing restaurants. The hotel food was brilliant, not sure about cakes for breakfast but eggs cooked to perfection and once again the view from the dining room was breathtaking! The staff were faultless could not have been anymore helpful, organised a private taxi to monte Cassino without any fuss! PERFECT PERFECT PERFECT!!! More

Fantastico!!!! Hotel and area to visit

We stayed at the Hotel Bristol from the 8th April for one week celebrating our 30th Wedding Anniversary. Our room was on the sixth floor directly underneath the restaurant with a balcony looking over Naples bay towards Mount Vesuvius and down to Marina Grande alongside small fishing village. The hotel facilities are immaculate and clean. The hotel employees were highly professional, friendly and provide excellent customer service from the front reception desk, cleaning staff and including the waiters in the restaurant along with their welcoming manager Sergio. The only noise we encountered was from the from the church in the village below and from the staff trolleys and movement of chairs as early holiday makers enjoyed their buffet breakfast above our room on the 7th Floor. So if you’re room is on the sixth floor be prepared to be woken from 6:30 am. That said, press the electronic shutters switch and let the sun and stunning views in whilst you relax and come round (absolutely fantastic). Sadly, i only ventured into the pool once as it was extremely cold at during our visit and was not heated during our visit. A great place to base yourself as the bus and train station are located together which was a 15-20 minute easy walk; we used public transport to travel on bus to Positano / Amalfi using a day ticket costing €8 each purchased from the shop at the train station. We also used the water taxi service (€8 each) from Positano to Amalfi to be able to see the coastline from the sea before the return trip on the bus. We traveled to Pompeii by train a total cost of €12 for use of the fast direct train there and returned on the local slower service. Whilst we were there some of the streets and points of interest were cordoned off and not available. This was a long day and took its toll walking around the cobbled stone areas for 6 hours, make sure you take plenty of water (although there is a Café with toilets situated inside the Pompeii). It is an incredible site to visit and does bring it to reality, so with a little imagination you will picture yourself back in time. We spent a day on Capri booking a return ferry ticket at the booking office at the marina costing €76 both of us. Purchasing bus tickets at the ticket booking office on the exit to the marina, we headed up to Ana Capri where we paid €11 each for a return ride on the chair lift (the views from Mount Salro are not to be missed). Capri was excellent and is a full day trip, give yourself as much time as possible to enjoy it. We then explored Capri town taking a stroll along to the Gardens of Augustus for €1 each to visit this small well-kept garden, which offers a splendid views of the Faraglioni and Krupp, which zigzags its way to Marina Piccola. We then walked back to the Marina to take a Boat ride around the island for €18 each. There is so much more to Sorrento and the surrounding coast, we enjoyed every minute of our time here staying in a fantastic hotel with stunning views, excellent food, service and exploring spectacular places. We will return.More


Fabulous hotel

I recently had the great fortune to celebrate my 50th birthday, on a 5 day stay, with a group of 20 or so family and friends (we ranged form pensioners to toddlers) at this wonderful hotel. The staff couldn't have been more helpful: great with the 9 kids; very helpful when organising my birthday meal and small party in the hotel; and made excellent suggestions for group meals in Sorrento and Capri. Families with children stayed in the five Villa Bianca rooms which are separate to the main hotel building (up 60 steps but definitely worth it!) and perfect for the kids to roam between rooms. These were fantastic large stylish rooms, each with roomy terraces and hot tub. Others stayed in lovely rooms in the hotel with spacious balconies and we all took advantage of the various public spaces to sunbathe, chat, eat and drink. The kids loved the swimming pool, despite the fact that, so early in the season, it was still rather chilly! There were fabulous views of the bay and the town from all over the hotel. Plenty of choice for us all at breakfast, evening meals were delicious and the terrific waiting staff were fun and very obliging. The hotel is an easy 10min walk down to the centre of Sorrento and wasn't an issue for any of us, even with a buggy. I would be delighted to stay at the Hotel Bristol again.More

Paul G,

Sorrento Holiday

Staying at the Hotel Bristol has been a great experience. A delightful Hotel with excellent food, clean with courteous service and "old fashioned" good standards. I would recommend this hotel to all; it has far exceeded our expectations of a reasonably priced holiday.More
