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.

Lovely Hotel

We stayed in the Bristol for two weeks, having just returned on the 28/09/15. All I can say is the position of the hotel must be one of the best in Sorrento, truly amazing views from most of the rooms and all the restaurants,lounge and pool area.The staff were so professional and kind and the quality of food you could never fault, a truly wonderful place to spend your holidays. As with most hotels that are positioned on the coast road the traffic can get a bit noisy if you have a lower floor room, but you actually get used to it after a while. Cleanliness was second to none and the whole ambiance of the place is really classy without being stuffy, it makes you relax as soon as you arrive. All in all a truly wonderful place.More



This hotel certainly didn't disappoint! Our room was spacious with a view of Vesuvius and Sorrento which words could not adequately describe. The service, staff, facilities and ambiance of the hotel were perfect. We choose to eat in the restaurant each night as the menu changed daily - I do not eat cheese (alien to Italians!) but each night my meal and sides arrived " senza formaggio". I mention this as an example of the excellent customer service. Each time we had breakfast, lunch or dinner we had a view of Vesuvius and Sorrento? The only downside was the traffic noise from the road. We were on the third floor and used earplugs but other reviews recommend requesting a higher floor to lessen the noise. This was not an issue for us but may be useful for others to know. We throughly enjoyed our time at the Bristol and would return without hesitation.More

Great Hotel and Location

My husband and I enjoyed our week at the Bristol Hotel. We stayed in the room 404 with a double balcony and spectacular views of the Bay of Naples. The room was large and kept spotlessly clean by the housekeeping staff. The hotel is situated on a busy road, but this wasn't an issue at night once the window shutters were closed. The choice and quality of the meals were good and the staff were excellent. It was a short walk into the main town, ten minutes maximum down a gentle hill. This was our first time in the Bristol and Yes we would stay again. More

Breathtaking Views and Excellent Service

My husband and I had a week at The Bristol Hotel in late August. We couldnt speak more highly of all the staff, the management, reception, restaurant staff and the cleaners were all very polite and would go out of their way to see that we enjoyed our stay. The views from our balcony were amazing, we have stayed at many places around the world but this was second to none. The hotel is high on the cliff with views over the ocean to Naples and Mt Vesuvius . Food at the restaurant was very good and the nightly entertainment especially I think it was a Tuesday night that we enjoyed an after dinner drink in the lounge listening to Carmine Orsini singing soprano and international melodies to perfection. The pool and garden were beautiful with lots of lounges and seating to relax. We also caught the hydrofoil to The Isle of Capri, it is well worth the visit but you do need to go on the chairlift to the top, beautiful shop although very expensive but nice restaurants to have lunch. We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Sorrento and would no hesitation in recommending the Bristol HotelMore

Let down by the food

Lovely room, stunning view over the bay, although on the second floor the enjoyment of the balcony was spoilt by the traffic noise and fumes from the busy road below. Would recommend a higher floor. Restaurant staff very friendly and helpful but both breakfast and evening meal were a little disappointing. If you want a sumptuous array of cakes for breakfast you will be very pleased but the quality of the cereals and cooked breakfast was below that we have previously experienced in similar hotels, the coffee always lukewarm but there was a good selection of fresh fruit on offer. We chose to eat out for 4 of the 7 evenings as the evening meal was average: the starters and salad better than the main course and dessert. Not a buffet evening meal, but chosen from a set menu and waiter served. Accompanying vegetables sparse and disappointing. Better desserts on offer at breakfast than dinner.More
