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.

Just back from a weeks stay at the Hotel Bristol in Sorrento , Italy. This was not the first time we have stayed in Sorrento but it was our first stay at the Bristol. We booked a junior suite and were allocated room 707 on arrival. Wow! This room had a huge balcony , small table with 2 chairs , 2 large armchairs with another table and a double sunbed. All were supplied with cushions/ mattresses. The room itself was large with a sleeping area and a living area separated by a double archway. The bathroom had a bath and a separate huge shower. Everything was spotlessly clean. The most impressive part of the room was however the view. Spectacular does not describe it. Vesuvius straight ahead , the bay of Naples and all of Sorrento . I sat for hours just looking at the view!! If funds allow do not hesitate to book a junior suite in this hotel - it is worth every penny. The hotel itself is perhaps a little dated but this is actually part of its charm. Staff are excellent and will go the extra mile to please. Breakfast is excellent - buffet with orders taken by waiters for eggs and bacon cooked as you like it. We were on half board but only ate dinner twice in the hotel as we like to eat out in Sorrento - there are many good restaurants in town. The food for dinner was very good but some may find the menu a bit limited but again if you ask they will accommodate any reasonable request. Dinner can be swapped for lunch if wanted. The pool area is attractive with a reasonably priced snack bar beside it. Very nice terrace area overlooking Sorrento also. The hotel is about a 10 minute walk into town but is situated on a busy road so make sure to use the crossing at the hotel. Bus stops right outside will take you either into town or along the Amalfi coast. We had such a fantastic week in Sorrento at the Bristol we are already planning to go back! More
We stayed in the villa suite for 7 nights in September. The room was very clean and had an amazing view. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was nothing amazing but fine for us. My only complaint is the poor WiFi. We had some very bad weather and were stuck in the room on a couple of occasions. Decent WiFi would have been great but no joy. Otherwise, we had a lovely stay and would recommend this hotel.More
Expected more !
Sorry to burst the bubble on this one ! but I was disappointed with the hotel Bristol.First off I will compliment the reception staff they were always very friendly and helpful & smartly dressed.The superior room we booked was very clean and spacious but nothing to the standard of a 4 star hotel.We paid €240 per night Bed & Breakfast for the room which was quite expensive for what we got,I do think you pay top price for the view as the breakfast was nothing outstanding in fact compared to other hotels we have stayed in Italy it was quite poor.We waited 20 minutes for a couple of boiled eggs! for breakfast staff in the restaurant were in some cases shabby the uniforms are rather old and dated food was just ok.We only ate the first night we arrived for dinner, so glad we didn't book half board as the food was bland and in my opinion some of the food was not cooked in house especially the desserts.If we return to Sorrento we will not stay here.We did notice ALL the restaurant staff and the front reception were all Male ? just curious really.the long walk to our rooms was a bit odd too we needed 2 lifts and stairs and long corridor,so definately not suited to the elderly or anyone with walking difficulties.Hotel Bristol is very quiet with no atmosphere at night.More
a wonderful place to stay
we have only just returned from a 2 week break celebrating a wedding anniversary and are so pleased we went after wanting to go there for many years. The hotel is everything you can read about in the other reviews, not a boutique hotel but very classy, very clean, and impressive - there are the most incredible bay views from the rooms and all the pool area, terraces and dining rooms and bar., it is all very relaxed, the staff are wonderful, attentive and very efficient. The hotel is about 10 minutes walk down hill from the town centre - it is not steep but the road is very busy at times.It would be worthwhile using the bus service to the town an back if you find this unpleasant which we did, but it would not stop us from going back as the hotel itself is wonderful. As the alternative hotels in the town centre as so much more expensive this hotel is good value. The town centre is also very busy so its good to be a bit apart from it. If you want a relaxing and memorable holiday book this one. If the hotel had a courtesy bus service this is the only improvement we would suggest. David and Elizabeth H, Hythe, KentMore
Traditional grand hotel with classic furnishings and service
We stayed recently for a week and had a really enjoyable and relaxing holiday. The hotel is situated on a hill built into the side of s mountain as is usual for the area. This hotel is not suited to those with mobility problems or small children due to the height and location. There is s very busy road right outside which can be difficult to cross but the location to the town of Sorrento and the Grand Marina is perfect. The food is of a high standard breakfast buffet and freshly cooked eggs to order and evening meal is a choice of 5 staters, main course and desserts and there's usually something for everyone. This was a great alternative to the usual buffet style provision. We were half board and sometimes had lunch and beverages at the pool bar. During the evening we either went into town or sat in the beautiful piano bar the entertainment consists of background music and the occasional Pianist and singer. There was only one wAiter on duty and on the nights it was busy it was very difficult to get a drink cocktails are 9 Euro. There is no exchange of money in the hotel everything is signed for and added to your final bill. The room we had was disappointing and in need of updating. The hotel was very clean but we were really disappointed that we were not given any information about the hotel on arrival. For 2 nights we were unable to sleep once the sun came up due to the light curtains and then found my mistake a switch that activated shutters. The waiters were mostly very helpful and courteous with the exception of one or two. More
