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.

Good value, lovely staff

While not close to town centre, this was a very good stay for us both. The free shuttle bus to town is great, starts at 9 am and runs late into the night with a big break early afternoon. Taxis into and from town are very expensive (20 Euros for about a mile!). So advice is to programme your day around the shuttle times if you wish to save money. Room was very clean, large, airy. Views are amazingly beautiful. Make sure you specify a sea view if you want one, but the noise can be a lot higher from the road than a room facing the back with no view. Food was actually not too bad. There are two options for dinner, a fixed price menu and a la carte. The fixed price menu is obviously more limited but fine for the price, nothing too fancy but a choice of 4 dishes for starters and also for mains, with a selection of fruit, cakes or ice cream to finish. The best meal was the buffet they put on one evening Not sure it is a regular thing, but worth asking about. I agree it is a bit dated (80's style), but very clean and cared for. The restaurant and reception staff were very helpful and attentive. Don't expect 4 star luxury, but very comfortable and excellent value. We used it as a base for trips to Pompeii and Herculaneum ( treated ourselves to a private guide, fabulous, worth every penny. Search Pompeii Lucia in Tripadvisor, highly rated). Also went up to the crater at Vesuvius, visited the villa at Oplontis, and visited the Archaeological museum in Naples. The train running around the bay to Naples (Circumvesuviana) is great for getting to all the historical sites, and so cheap. Fantastic trip. Would definitely return here. More

Great Views and Bar

Great views from bar, pool and restaurants, there is a shuttle bus to the town, WiFi was pretty bad unless you were in the lobby. Views of Naples and Mt. Vesuvius in the distance. Well maintaned, but very 1980's decor.More

Room vith a view.

Location is perfect, this is a nice hotel with a lot of amenities. The shuttle service is awesome gets you in town in 5 minutes. Service at reception is unpersonal but respectful. They have a nice dinning room for breakfest and the pool is nice and big. Our room was bright and large and clean. The free parking is a plus if you have a car in this region. A little remote if you get to Sorrento by train. i would go backMore

A happy place

This was a lovely hotel in every way. The room we had was light and breezy, colorful, large. We had a balcony and could see the mountains and the sea. I would describe the hotel as mid-range not luxury and the rooms were lacking a few things, but immaculately clean, airy open spaces, and a great holiday feel. A small disadvantage was the dinner restaurant, (not great) The main advantage was the staff, so helpful, kind and attentive to our every whim. Even the cleaners couldn’t do enough for me when I explained I had a dust allergy finding the perfect bed cover and popping in to inquire if I was OK. Tonino at the front desk is a rare gem. Patient, helpful and a true gentleman. The hotel just made us feel very happy. Which is an important factor in any good holiday.More

Views to die for

Great hotel for cleanliness & great staff. Wouldn't rate it a 4* little old fashioned. Reception staff can be a little frosty. Waiters are on the whole nice with a couple of exceptions, Bar staff are the best. Late September the hotel is starting to wind down. Not a hotel to go to if you wish to walk anywhere shuttle bus into Sorrento very good but did find other hotel patrons don't think they should queue & just walk to the front of people who have waited not very courteous. Food was ok, but meat for me was under cooked & salad every night very repetitive, they cant do English toast which is slightly disappointing as not every one wants cake & Danish pastries for breakfast .Defiantly not a place to go to with children in September as it's very quiet in the hotel. I will go back but to a hotel in Sorrento or with in walking distance beautiful Country. =)More
