Grand Hotel Vesuvio

From its hillside setting, the Grand Hotel Vesuvio offers up widescreen views of the Bay of Naples. There’s a big pool and a smart restaurant, plus a free shuttle bus that’ll run you to the centre of town.

The Grand Hotel Vesuvio sits in the hills behind Sorrento, surrounded by lemon and olive groves. Its lofty position gives it spectacular views – they sweep over Sorrento and the Bay of Naples to Mount Vesuvius.

It’s a 20-minute walk down into the town centre from the hotel, or you can jump on the regular courtesy bus. The petite, pebbly beach of Tonarella is a 10-minute walk away.

This grand, old hotel still cuts it in the 21st century. Front office staff are a bit formal but totally efficient.The rest of the staff are very friendly and efficient. Unfortunately we had a back room and didnt realise until the first night what we missing out on. Still the room was comfortable and very clean.Breakfast was huge and a very enjoyable and dinner was quite good too.After dinner we strolled out onto the 1st floor patio for an espresso and zambucca and were instantly mesmerised. Below us lay the Bay of Naples and on the opposite shore stood Vesuvius ominously in the half light. Sweeping to the right and along the foreshore lay Naples shimmering like a million diamonds until a little further was Sorrento and above that was us totally enthralled. Huge swimming pool and regular shuttle bus into Sorrento.More

Surreal Location

What a location. Sitting high above Sorrento overlooking the Bay of Naples to Mount Vesuvius from our balcony. Staff are excellent and cater to you every whim and the free shuttle bus to Sorrento saves driving. We only had breakfast at the hotel, which was buffet style but was very good. The hotel is clean and modern with a large pool and outside bar area. At night you can sit outside if you wish listening to local musicians or inside at a large piano bar. We were able to book all tours, Capri, Pompeii, Amalfi, Positano etc. from the hotel. Thoroughly recommended.More

Wow, what a surprise we got. An amazing suite beautifully decorated with a balcony overlooking the the mountains and ocean. The service could not be faulted and the restaurant was wonderful. Has a real charm about it. The staff were very friendly and could not do enough for us. Didn't use the free shuttle bus into town but noticed it ran often.. Breakfast was lovely and still can't get over that view. Highly recommended if you're looking for something special.More

OMG Heaven!

This was the most beautiful hotel we went to in all of Italy! The location, on top of the hill, made for a breathtaking view : Sea + Mountains! Staff was very friendly and spoke English as well. Rooms are very spacious, comfy and beautifully designed. And at last, great food =) A shuttle bus was also available for guests to take them to the old part of town (a very cute place for shopping if you have the time)More

Sarah A,

Great Honeymoon & Hotel

Lovely hotel with even better views in a great location. The food is amazing and quality customer service. Out of all the noise but just a 10 minute walk from the town, I would only walk if it is adults as there is no pavement for the begining. There is however a free shuttle bus day & night. We had to pay a little extra to get a room with a sea view and of a decent size even though it was written by the travel agent that is was our honeymoon & that was expected. We did get welcomed with free champaign in our room though. Overall we could not have been happier with our experience & honeymoon. We went in July 2014 & had great weather.More
