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.

Amazing views , stylish surroundings...

This hotel was traditional and stylish charming yet modern. All the rooms were huge, marble and tiled floors, beautiful furniture, ornate mirrors sparkling clean and polished. The bedroom was enormous with fabulous balcony and view of bay of Naples and Vesuvious . Excellent outside terraces, could not swim as it was cold weather. I highly recommend this hotel. More

Third time and always consistently good

The Bristol must have the best view in Sorrento. The hotel has the feel of a cruise ship from the 1930's - service is excellent and relaxation is top of the bill. Can't comment on dinner as we love the choice of restaurants in town but have had lively lunches there.More

Excellent Holiday

Just returned from a week at the Bristol Hotel and had a most enjoyable experience. The highlight has to be the food. Every meal was superbly cooked with a wide range of options. Very little incentive to eat out when food is this good. In addition, every member of staff from the reception to restaurant and even the maids were so eager to please and had nothing but smiles the whole week. This is what you expect from a holiday but rarely find it. The Bristol is a find that should not be overlooked.More

We stayed here for the second week of the Easter holidays and it was wonderful. This is a very traditionally run hotel, with a high value placed on excellent service. Our room on the seventh floor was most spacious, as was the bathroom and as for the views... well, they are the best we have ever experienced! We could see all of the Bay of Naples, with Vesuvius dominating the horizon. The bed was typically continental - a bit hard - but not too hard. This is an old hotel, but it was spotlessly clean. It was quite a long walk from our room to the dining room, as this is quite a sprawling hotel, but once again, the views from there were also amazing, as it's on the 6th floor. The food was amazing and the Maitre d', Sergio, really looked after my husband, who has a dairy intolerance, helping him choose from the menu. The chef even made him some strawberry sorbet, since a lot of the desserts contained cream. There was a good choice of wines, too, and we have become fans of the local wine Falanghina. The walk down the hill into Sorrento took about 10 minutes, and it is a gentle incline, although I wouldn't fancy doing it in the height of summer! There is also a pleasant walk to the ruins of a Roman villa, right on the water's edge, overlooking the Bay of Naples. This took a good 20 minutes. We then walked down to Marina Di Puolo, a lovely spot next to a sandy beach. If we ever return to Sorrento, then as long as we are still fit enough to do the walk back up the hill, we shall definitely stay the Hotel Bristol!More

Amazing Experience

We started our Italian vacation with a four night stay at the Hotel Bristol in Sorrento. It was a perfect choice. We had a fabulous stay... The hotel, our room, the amazing view and the service was all above par. Breakfasts were a delightful affair and the hotel had everything one could require. The location is superb with amazing ocean views. Highly recommended.More
