This hotel comes with a tranquil pool and pretty gardens filled with citrus groves.
This family-run place is on busy Corso Italia, with Sant Agnello’s main square and train station – for trips to Herculaneum and Pompeii – about 10 minutes’ walk away. Twenty minutes on foot gets you into Sorrento.
There’s a peaceful pool area with a curtain of orange trees, and an outside terrace for breakfasts among the pretty shrubbery.

Lovely Friendly Hotel
Stayed in Hotel Girasole in September 2014, From moment that we arrived until moment we left, both myself and my husband were made to feel very welcome. Everyone was so very friendly and helpful. There was a problem with the room that we had booked when we arrived so were put into another room just for the first night, By the time we had had breakfast the next morning the room that we had booked (on the back of the hotel with fantastic views of Vesuvius) was ready for us along with a small bottle of Prosecco and some chocolates to apologise for the inconvenience, This was a lovely touch especially considering the we had not really been inconvenienced at all. The family who ran the hotel were always available to assist with any queries and even took my husband's glasses to the local opticians and had them fixed after he managed to break them on arrival. The pool area is quite small but very peaceful and pleasant. It was lovely to sit on the terrace each morning for breakfast. The only reason we have rated the property as 4 is because it is situated on a very busy main road, Otherwise it would definitely be a 5. We will definitely stay here again when we next visit Sorrento, I=More

another wonderful stay at this fantastic hotel
we have been back to this hotel i believe this will be our 6th visit. rita and her fantastic staff work so hard to ensure all guests are treated as valued guests i would go as far to say that guests are treated like family. on check in we were warmly greeted by name and had a big hug from rita it was like retuning home the hotel is spotless and our room had been updated since we last visited the lighting had been updated to led lights the led lights had been added above the shower in the bathroom they were blue and reminded me of stars there was ordinary lighting above the sink to give adequate lighting . the decor was fresh to be honest we have never had a bedroom at girasole where the decor was none other than clean and fresh we know that girasle during the late winter spend the time decorating and refreshing the decor in the rooms the linen was new and had the girasole name embroidered with 3 stars the sheets were lovley and white also we noted that the towels also new and bearing the girasole hotel name was also of bath sheet size which was wonderful and they were so soft before we arrived i had emailed rita to request an extra pillow as i knew the beds only had one per person the extra pillows were in place for our arrival on the bed there was a lovley new shower curtain and yes we did have a few occasions whereby we got water on the floor as the shower tray is shallow and its an art to get the shower curtain just right so that no leakage occurs it wasnt a huge problem as we had a bath mat in place to soak up any water the lovley housekeeping staff made sure we had clean and dry towels andwe were well looked after having fresh clean towels when we needed them the hotel is respectful of environmental issues by notices saying hang towels up this means they can be used again towels in the shower please change. we had a really comfortable 2 week stay we had a daily picnic of rolls which we purchased as an extra this enabled us to take them out on long walks up in the hillside around sorrento if you require a picnic all you need to do is talk to the staff and they can make sure you have one and it can be put on your room bill,which you settle up beofre you leave at the end of your stay breakfast was lovley i enjoyed the breakfast and the tomatoes they have on the side of breakfast table were wonderful on toast very tasty they were in basil and had some olive oil on the cups of tea you could make from the machine were ok i wasnt too keen on coffee from the machine purely because the milk from the machine was hot and very frothy so i found the drink was more froth than drink but the tea was ok some mornings they did hot milk and coffee they served from jugs this was coffee that was wonderful we came to sorentto in october the weather was warm for the time of year previously we had been out at easter time last year we went in july and the only thing i missed in sorrentto were the colours of the oranges and lemons on the trees as at this time of year the fruit sitting on trees are next years fruit waitng to ripen they were green fruits so lacked the colour i lovled to see the view from our bedroom over the garden was a view to die for a view across the bay of naples some evenings there was the opportunity to have a 3 course evening meal which was great value at 15 euro per person i would say however the menu was mainly catering for meat or fish eaters occassionally there was a vegetarian option whilst we were there there was a musician who came in and played an electric piano and sang and played beautifully guests also got up and danced it was lovley the pool was still open when we visited we were there 13th til 27 th october the pool was cleaned daily and was immaculate the garden was well maintained and had lovley cyclemen flowers to give colour we used the bar a couple of times and felt there was adequate choice and prices were ok we had an early start to the airport on our return home and were given a snack bag to take as it was a 6 am pickup i have written a review for each of our stays here my tip would be ask for a room with a garden view and if you have any issues you are not happy with please talk to rita and her staff as they will do there best to try to sort out any issuesMore
Short stay in Sorrento
This hotel is a friendly and family run affair and is located on the busy Corso Italia into Sorrento. The balconyed rear rooms overlooking the garden also look over the Bay of Naples and Vesuvius - fantastic with a bottle of wine watching out over the bay at sunset. A good 20 min walk from the center of Sorrento is a minus as are the fairly basic breakfasts. Otherwise a good 3 star hotel. More
Swimming pool area is a small oasis
Good value extremely clean hotel. 30 mins walk to Sorrento. Use the back roads using map from reception. Lots of local restaurants. Breakfast good but could be better with some fresh fruit. Pay extra for garden view. We had room 20 on third level. Great view of Vesuvius and Bay of Naples. Very quiet, slept with door open, did not use air con however it was early October. Weather perfect around 25 during the afternoon with no rain for 12 days. Lunch by the pool was lovely, better to eat out in the evenings. Hotel house wine very good at 8 euros. Local pick up for all excursions. More

Basic 3* hotel
We stayed a week in this hotel. Everything was neat and tidy and what you would expect from a 3* hotel. The breakfast had a good choice of cheeses and meats, but I expected better than tinned fruit. Also, the cakes were very different from what we are used to in the UK. Our room was on the front with a balcony from which I was able to watch sheer lunacy on the road! This meant that the walk into town was very dangerous. The pavement was either non-existent, or two feet wide up to ten feet wide. Where there was no pavement, it was extremely hazardous. Where it was two feet wide, the same because on one side would be a solid wall and on the other, moving traffic. To make it worse, the pavement was cobbled and uneven, so it was necessary to keep looking down to avoid twisting one's ankle. Altogether an unpleasant walk which messed with one's head! Lunatic scooter riders made for exciting viewing. I actually saw a woman with three kids on board, texting as she was zooming along on the wrong side of the road! But hey, no traffic lights, no roundabouts and the traffic kept moving. You want to cross the road, no problem - just do it and everything stops for you. You just need the bottle to step out!More
