The hotel is a perfect hideaway from the hustle and bustle (particularly in the popular summer months) but at just a 15-minutes walk from the pretty town’s centre, it is also an ideal spot to visit all the main attractions. 

Sorrento is of course world-famous for its sweeping water views. In order to see these at their very best, take a trip to Grand Hotel de la Ville’s rooftop terrace. From here you’ll drink in the spectacular Sorrentine peninsula in all its glory, including the Bay of Naples, Mount Vesuvius and Capri. But the hotel’s rooftop serves as much more than just a viewpoint. The terrace is equipped with a pool (the hotel has two, the other is in the gardens), so you can take a dip while you gaze amazed at the iconic view.

Naturally, food and drink play a great part in your holiday at Grand Hotel de la Ville. The hotel has two bars and two restaurants, plus a snack bar that serves light meals at lunchtime and a comfortable lounge for tea-time. The restaurants serve both Mediterranean and international cuisine that bursts with flavour and local savoir-faire. Dining at Grand Hotel de la Ville is a unique and unforgettable experience, and bound to be one of the highlights of your trip.

About the location

Topping travellers’ bucket lists for years, Sorrento is one of Italy's must-see destinations. It has been drawing the jet set for almost 200 years - Henrik Ibsen wrote Peer Gynt here, Wagner and Nietzche had a well-publicised philosophical debate in the Piazza Tasso and Byron, Shelley and Dickens all passed through on their Grand Tours. 

Lemons are the name of the game in Sorrento. The region is famous for them, so expect zesty flavours wherever you go. The citrus fruit is everywhere - on the beautiful, handmade, hand painted ceramics (which are very lovely gifts to take home) to the risottos, pastas and yes, even pizzas that originate from the area. All are delicious, especially when washed down with a glass of ubiquitous limoncello.

You won’t have to go far from Sorrento’s shores to tick the sights off your to-do list. The Pompeii ruins are less than an hour away (and easily reachable by public transport), Positano and Amalfi are just 15 and 30 km, while Capri, the most iconic of Italian islands, is a short ferry ride away. For those who want to delve into the region’s wealth of cultural assets, Naples is only an hour by public transport. And if you do really want to see it all, the Amalfi Drive, connecting Sorrento and Amalfi, is a narrow road along the high cliffs above the Tyrrhenian Sea and offers some of the best views we’ve ever seen.

Overall we were disappointed with our stay, upon arrival I asked for a bottle of water as I was hot & pregnant and they said “go to the bar”. Every other hotel I’ve stayed at has been forthcoming...
