About the location

Couples can enjoy the small town feel of Sorrento, while getting lost in the backstreets, and trying out local specialities including pizza and limoncello in street side restaurants and cafés.

Really liked this hotel: got an upgrade to a sea view room, with balcony looking out to Bay of Naples, Vesuvius. Well fitted out, clean, good condition, and they were conscientious about covid precautions which was reassuring.
Restaurant was great for dinner, good breakfast too, snacks/drinks also good in main pool (good for swimming) and roof top pool (more for lounging). Friendly and helpful staff.
Quiet location (for Sorrento!), but still not too far to walk to the centre. Museo de Correale (just round the corner) has interesting and varied classical art and gardens, enjoyed this. Lemon farm opposite has tours, this was also interesting to see some of the 'lemon history'

“ Covid cut holiday short

Just returned from what was supposed to be 2 weeks in Sorrento we went with Jet2 who brought us home due to the covid situation, we stayed at the Grand Hotel De La Ville this is an excellent hotel but unfortunately was nearly empty due to the current situation we stayed in room 509 which is an upgraded sea view room the view was fantastic looking at the bay and Vesuvius this is well worth upgrading to, the food was very good but limited on choice you could always ask for something else and they try to do it for you we only did this once and they brought us exactly what we asked for very good. The staff were excellent Lorenzo on the on reception was excellent we mentioned that there were no tea and coffee making facilities in the room as this was not provided he said he would see what he could do the next day we had all what we had asked for how good is that, Samuele in the restaurant was also excellent very attentive and always having a chat he spoke better English than us he went out of his way to make sure you had a good stay all the staff were good but these 2 stood out. The weather was poor but we will go back when all the current problems are over but will go more mid-year, we will definitely stay in the same hotel it is a short walk from the Piazza Tasso no hills just right. We would mention Jet2 phoned us at 8.48 pm on Thursday 15th to tell us we were coming home on the Sunday 18th our refund for the rest of our holiday came through at 23.56 pm the same day great service.
