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 visited Sorrento on 20th October for a week. We were greeted with lovely sunny weather. The hotel is perched on the cliff with the most amazing views of the bay of Naples and Sorrento. Facing us from our balcony was Mount Versuvius in all it's glory. Our room was on the 9th floor which sounds difficult to get to, but it isn't as there are lifts. The room was large and bright and very clean. Bed linen and towels were changed daily. Staff are friendly and polite, and food is lovely. We were on half board.getting to the centre of town was easy, straight down the road, less than 10 mins walk, with amazing views all the way down. There are endless lounges, sun terraces, pool to enjoy. The bar was pleasant with a veranda to sit and enjoy the spectacular views. Would I visit this hotel again ... Yes if I was coming back to Sorrento. Thanks to all at the hotel for a most pleasant week.More

Beautiful Hotel in a Beautiful Setting

We travelled to Sorrento for our honeymoon and had a wonderful experience at Hotel Bristol. This was the closest to a 5 star that we have experienced. The check-in took less than 5 minutes and then we were escorted to our room where our luggage was already waiting for us... And what a room! We had booked a Junior Suite and were graciously upgraded to a Junior Suite with jacuzzi. Although the room was beautiful, large and spotless, the balcony was by far it's greatest feature. Complete with the jacuzzi, a bistro set, two loungers and a round sun bed, we spent most of our 5 day stay here. The view must be one of the best in the area, looking over the Bay of Naples and the town of Sorrento. We just loved sunbathing, sipping a glass of wine or enjoying the jacuzzi with this breathtaking view in front of us. In addition to the beautiful property, the hotel is nicely located, approximately 7 minutes walking from the centre of town. With an abundance of great restaurants and bars, we ate here every night and did not actually try the hotel restaurant. We were also only about 15 minutes walking from the fisherman's village by the sea, where we enjoyed 2 excellent lunches of fresh fish and seafood at Trattoria da Emilia. Some of the lovely added touches were the basket of fresh fruit in our room upon arrival and turn down service in the evening. I will not hesitate to recommend this hotel for someone looking for a bit of luxury for their vacation.More

Didn't want to leave

We stayed at the Hotel Bristol from the 5th September for 2 weeks. Loved it. The staff were friendly and lovely. Nothing was too much trouble. We stayed in room 810 and we had the most amazing huge balcony, with table and chairs, 2 sun loungers and wrought iron 3 sweater, 2 arm chairs table and canopy on wheels. The food was very good with plenty of choice with 2 restaurants at night. Stunning views over Sorrento from both restaurants. The bar had a balcony outside where you could sit and take in the views. The rooms were very clean with fresh towels and bed linen changed daily. Sunbathing around the pool area or on the sun terrace both with stunning views. 10 minute walk into Sorrento. Hotel situated above the Marina Grande which is a lovely little fishing harbour with nice restaurants. At the hotel you can change your evening meal to lunch time so you are able to go out in the evening . We have nothing but praise for the hotel, and the stay and will certainly return to this amazing place.More

Honeymoon Heaven

We booked the hotel Bristol for our honeymoon on reccomendation from a friend. On arrival we were greated by friendly staff who looked after us for the duration of our stay and were more then helpful with any questions we had. We stayed in a Junior suite which was amazing. Our balcony looked out over the bay of naples, it was so nice to just sit back and enjoy the view with a nice glass of wine every evening. The hotel itself is spotless. Unfortuanley we did not eat in the restaurant as we had found amazing places to eat each night we went out, I can only imagine he holds the same standards as the rest of the hotel. Cant wait to go back again.More
