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.

Pretty views, good shuttle service, and helpful staff, However, DISGUSTING housekeeping
This hotel was ok, but is definitely showing its age. The PROS of this hotel are that there is a reliable shuttle to the town center area, free breakfast, and a helpful staff. The housekeeping staff did a HORRIBLE job. When we first checked in there were hairs AND LOTS OF THEM on the decorative pillows on the bed. It was a real turn-off. There is no way a housekeeper could have missed them. I got the sense that they just don't care. The bedspread was completely wrinkled and really made a bad impression. The most disgusting thing is that we came back from a day's activities and found a wet pair of men's under ware in our room that wasn't there when we left for the day and that did not belong to us! Totally gross. For that reason alone, we would definitely not stay at this property again. Also, wifi connection was not good at all.More
A family oriented hotel
Grand Hotel Vesuvio is nestled in the hills above Sorrento. The rooms are spacious with well-appointed baths. The rooms were spotlessly clean and very comfortable. There is a shuttle that frequently runs between the hotel and Sorrento. The hotel is also very reasonably priced and a bargain for budget conscious travelers. The staff were courteous and helpful. The terrace bar is delightful to have a drink and savor the view. The downside of the hotel is that there is only one restaurant and the food is not good. The travelers who say, "You can not get a bad meal in Italy." have not eaten here, You have to go into Sorrento if you want a decent meal. There is a large attractive pool but the lounge chairs are very uncomfortable and the noise level made it less enjoyable for me.More

Amazing views and bags of charm!!!!!
Ignore all of the fussy people, this Hotel has loads of charm and although dated still runs really well. The staff are all friendly especially the Shuttle bus driver who always wishes you a warm hello or goodbye....Ciao!!! Food is all fairly simple fare but done very well, so nice to see the Restaurant staff all dressed up. All the hotels in Italy have old fashioned decor, all are clean and tidy, why pay fortunes for a Hotel down in Sorrento centre where it is hot and crowded when you can pay much less and stay up on the hill with loads of space, the best views and all the Neapolitan flavour you could ever wish for.More

Value for the money
Nice hotel with a wonderful view of the Sorrento coast. Choose room with balcony and sea-view. Ordinary breakfast-buffÃ©. Good enough alternative for lunch if you stay at the pool all day. But take the free shuttlebus downtown for dinner. The only flaw was the wi-fi that didn't work all the time. But all in all I can recommend the hotel and wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.More

I stayed here with my friend and we enjoying our stay. The hotel has probably had its grand days in the 60s/70s but today everything is still working well. Lots of open space with marble floors. The pool area was nice and big. Our room was very clean and spacious with a marvellous view on Vesuvio from the balcony. The service was nice and friendly. However, the reception personnel was somewhat arrogant. The Sorrento city centre is a bit far but the hotel provides a bus service several times a day (and the driver was always very friendly to everybody).More
