Blue Grotto


Hotels in Sorrento, Italy

Italy is indeed blessed to have more than her fair share of beautiful landscapes and destinations which attract millions of visitors every year.  Sorrento is one of the gems that you simply have to visit if you are going to Italy for business or pleasure.  The town is easily reached from Rome by road or rail in under 3 hours, and there is a special train, the Circumvesuviana that links Sorrento to Naples.

You will need several days to really appreciate all the town has to offer, including a visit to the famous Blue Grotto on the Isle of Capri, the amazing ruins at Pompeii and a trip to the citrus orchards where the delicious lemon liqueur Limoncello comes from, besides all the historic buildings, museums and attractions in the city itself.  When deciding where to stay in Sorrento, Italy, there is plenty of accommodation in Sorrento to suit all tastes and budgets, from charming Sorrento Bed and Breakfasts to the most luxurious 5-star hotels in Sorrento.

Best hotels in Sorrento, Italy

Due largely to the geography of the town, many of the best hotels in Sorrento are perched on hillsides high above the sea, and have wonderful views of the ocean, although you may be a little way out of the centre.  One of these is the boutique-style La Minervetta which occupies an enviable position high above the Marina Grande.  If you prefer a central location and a traditional grand hotel then look no further than the Excelsior Victoria which has been family-run since 1834; it has an Art Deco winter garden and stunning sea views from the terrace and is decidedly one of the best hotels in Sorrento. 

Hostels in Sorrento

There are two hostels in Sorrento than really stand out; they have all the services and facilities you would expect from an up-market hotel, but charge hostel prices.  Have a look at Palazzo Taso, and Ulisse Deluxe Hostel.  For a really cheap Sorrento hostel, but with shared bathrooms, the Hostel Le Sirene has double and dormitory-style rooms for those travelling on a restricted budget.  All three of these hostels in Sorrento are conveniently situated in the town centre, close to many restaurants, bars and attractions.

Bed and breakfast in Sorrento

B&B’s in Sorrento offer another good way of keeping your holiday budget under control and there are some good ones!  Have a look at Relais Villa Angiolina (with pool!), Casa Correale Rooms & Garden (very central), and Palazzo Agagnale, all highly rated by previous residents.

Apartments in Sorrento

Hiring one of the apartments in Sorrento is a great option for families.  The Villino Chalet Paradiso is a budget option, while the Villa Elisa Casa Vacanze and the Villa Terrazza have more bells and whistles and a higher price tag.
