Hotel Girasole  

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.

In the UK, this holiday is only available from the Thomson group.

Worth a visit

Had read the reviews before we went so we were aware we were on a busy road, however as you walk into Sorrento you realise that a lot of the other hotels are too. We had only booked two standard rooms but we were kindly upgraded for one room to a garden view room. This room was larger and the bathroom more spacious than the other room with the added bonus of no traffic noise. We stayed for a week and after a while I didn't notice the noise as much also we were so tired from all of our day trips. The shower in my room as previously mentioned was tiny and the shower curtain does stick to you but I managed and my daughter just used the larger one in the other room we had. The breakfast was enough for us. Yes it was the same choices each day but we managed. My only disappointment was the evening meals. I wasn't expecting a five star restaurant but the quality and temperature of the food was not great. Most days we found something to eat, there was only one day we ate out as only 1 out of the 4 travelling liked the choices. I do have to say given the quality I would have liked to have eaten out more but our budget wouldn't allow this. The wifi in the hotel was free and we had no issues at all with connecting to it. The pool is just nice for the end of the day after walking around Italy. The children enjoyed a few hours there whilst I sat and read. My only grumble here is having to pay 3 euros for a sun bed that lies down as only the chairs are available otherwise. Air con in room was a welcome relief on an evening and the free safe kept our belongings secure. The staff however are what makes this hotel lovely and somewhere I would return to in the future. They were helpful and kind and always willing to help and they take great pride in this family run hotel. Yes I would return to the hotel but perhaps on a bed and breakfast basis. If you have any questions I will do my best to help.More

Lovely Hotel

Staff very friendly. Hotel very clean and fresh. Pool was lovely, as was the pool-side lunch and snack bar. We stayed for one week, and enjoyed every day very much. The food served for breakfast and for the evening meal (which was extra) was very nice, albeit slightly limited in choice for the later. The rooms were spacious and clean (the rooms were cleaned meticulously every day), and had air-conditioning (essential for the Italian summer if you are from a cooler climate) The only problem we had was that the hotel was situated next to a very busy and very loud main road into the city centre. This did make leaving the hotel a bit difficult, since busy Italian roads are not for the faint-hearted pedestrian. But the hotel staff more than made up for this by detailing us alternate routes to the city centre which were far quieter and avoided the main roads.More

Jack D,

Family wedding

Having been to Sorrento 4 years ago and stayed in a 5star hotel, we where a little worried about hotel Girasole. Our children and grandchild couldn't afford to stay in a more expensive hotel and we wanted to all be together, as we were all attending a family wedding. We didn't have to worry at all. The hotel obviously needs updating but the service they give is very good. The ladies that clean the bedrooms are wonderful. They come in during the morning and are very thorough. The pool was lovely and snack bar good as well. Some other family members came to see us one day and could use the pool and hotel facilities for 5 euros , which we thought was very good. The down side was the bar doesn't open until 7pm. Lots of people like a pre -dinner drink, and having to choose your evening meal at breakfast is very dated. We only had B&B so it didn't worry us. There are lots of places to eat nearby, if you can stand walking near the very busy road! Breakfast is good . No hot choices but lots of lovely other things. Tony one of the waiters was charming, always a cheery smile when we saw him. This is a family run hotel and they are all wonderful, and so helpful and friendly.More

Family run Hotel in Sorrento

Stayed at the Hotel in June for eleven nights. Looked ar reviews and saw people said road rooms could be noisy. So requested a quiet room. On arrival we were met by the family and our room was in the annex by the side of the pool. It was very quiet and had all we needed.Cleaned every day with regular sheet changes.We did take our own travel kettle to make tea in the room. Had a small fridge, which was good and a free room safe. Pool area was great, with plenty of free deck chairs. Lovely breakfasts with pastries, bread, cooked meats, cereals, fresh fruit and cheese. More than enough for us. You can use the restaurant or the lovely outdoor terrace. We would defenatly go back. A good walk into the centre of Sorrento and a short walk into the lovely St Aggnelleo.Very helpful owners. Gave advice on trains, buses etc.More


Perfect place to stay in Sorrento

Having never been to Sorrento we went by the travel agents recommendation. The hotel was lovely, the owners so friendly and staff couldn't do enough for you to make our stay a good one. We were there for 10 days and went half board for the days when being out on trips we could just come back and relax without walking off to town. The breakfast offered was plenty all cold but sets you up for the day. At the pool they offer lunches. Evening meals were nice but not really vegetarian friendly though a couple of nights that we did stay in the chef cooked especially for me, but on the whole we mostly ate out. The hotel is a 10 / 15 minute walk into town, which is down hill going there but can feel a lot longer walking back. The hotel has a good size pool for relaxation and lengths. I wouldn't say it was a place to take younger children but families with teens it would be fine. We were there before the school holidays so other than the owners grandchildren about the hotel was child free. If I went to Sorrento again with family would I stay there? Yes, because the cost wasn't too bad for the 5 of us. If it were just my husband and I then we'd probably go closer to town which would be more expensive but cuts out the long walk back after a few glasses of prosecco 🍸😊 More
