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.

Fantastic location, lovely swimming pool & stunning views

We booked direct and they also organised taxi transfers for us from Naples airport. We were in a Junior Suite (913) which was the top floor with a spacious balcony (sun loungers, comfy chair, and table/chairs plus a hot tub). Great room although the air conditioning could have been a little cooler! The location of the hotel is great, a gentle 10 minute walk to the main town and for that walk you have the benefit of the views from the hotel which are second to none. There is also a great little ship just across the road which has a great selection of drinks and snacks - it's open daily from 9am - 11pm. The hotel itself is dated but is very well maintained. The swimming pool is a dream and they enforce the policy so people can't reserve towels which is refreshing. We found the hotel a bit of a tardis with certain lifts only reaching levels. This wouldnt be a problem if they either gave you a map or put signs up in the lifts and within the hotel. We found this quite annoying! The room service was ok but in the evening I couldnt call it turndown but on some nights they came in and folded the bed sheets back but didn't do anything else. It wasn't consistent and they didn't change towels or anything else so it was a little odd. Breakfast was a little limited with not a huge choice so quite repetitive. All in all a lovely hotel....but because of the above we couldn't give it a 5.More

Fantastic hotel

My husband and I stayed at the Bristol in July as we were getting married in Positano. The staff were extremely efficient and friendly at all times. Great location and stunning views. The staff made us feel very special on our Wedding Day. I would highly recommend this hotel and we look forward to returning.More

Great hotel with amazing views!

Just back from 2 weeks at the Bristol - cannot fault this hotel! Stunning views of Sorrento and Vesuvius from our bedroom, the restaurant and terrace bar, great food, friendly staff, big pool and only a 10-15 minute walk into Sorrento. We will definitely be back.More

Wonderful Hotel in a Beautiful Location

We stayed here for 2 weeks for our wedding and honeymoon and had an absolutely wonderful time. We stayed in the Junior Suite room which was extremely spacious, fresh and beautifully decorated. Everything about the room was lovely but what made it extra special was the wonderful balcony with stunning views of Vesuvius and Sorrento. We had everything we needed on the balcony so did not spend any time around the pool (although we did have a nosey and just like the rest of the hotel, the pool and surrounding areas were spacious, clean, well looked-after and had more beautiful views). The food in the hotel was fantastic. We don't normally do half board as prefer to eat out but we were not disappointed. The evening meals consisted of a 'help yourself' course of salad, breads and mediterranean vegetables and the starter, main meal and dessert were made to order from a different selection each night. Whilst we were there we ate some delicious dishes ranging from various risotto dishes, various pasta dishes, veal, duck, fish, squid and pork. We practically had to roll ourselves out of there every night! The breakfasts consisted of fruit, bread, cakes, pastries, cereal, yogurt, bacon and eggs. It was the same food every morning but can't really complain as there was plenty of it. All of the hotel staff were fantastic but our cleaner and the waiting on staff (Sergio, Jueseppi, Carmine, Benjamino) were particularly accommodating, polite and friendly. The hotel is a short walk into town and down to Marina Grande, so the location is excellent. There are also 2 shops very nearby which is very handy. Sorrento itself is busy but charming. We really enjoyed mooching around the side streets and spending an hour or 2 having a drink at Marina Grande. Can also highly recommend Amalfi, Positano, Ravello and Capri as well. We are so glad that we decided to get married in Sorrento and to stay in The Bristol. We hope to be coming back in the not so distant future!More

We absolutely loved our Honeymoon in Sorrento. The Hotel Bristol was amazing. We were both made to feel like royalty when we arrived until we left. The hotel itself is beautiful. The service was outstanding. The views of the Sorrento peninsula are breathtaking. The Hotel Bristol should be five star. It really is the crown jewel of Sorrento. My wife and I stayed in the Villa Bianca on top of the Hotel. The gardens were beautiful. Lemons and kiwis growing on trees. Simply stunning. Every morning our room was cleaned and the mini bar refilled free of charge. In the evening we came back to find our bed was turned down with our nightwear folded out on the bed. The service was like nothing we've ever experienced. It was like something out of a movie. The selection on offer during breakfast was plentiful and tasteful. The restaurant was lovely. The pool on the roof and the staff who supplied fresh towels each day were really fantasic. The guys working behind the main desk at reception were the best. Always attentive and happy to give directions or order taxis, they even drove into town whilst we waited in the lobby to buy us tickets for Capri. If you are coming to Sorreto, it has to be the Bristol. The other hotels in the town centre couldn't possibly have the same views that the Bristol can offer. They are simply breathtaking. Thank you to everyone at the Hotel Bristol who made our honeymoon so special. Can't wait to go back again. Ciao and Grazie.More
