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.

Splendid Hotel with the WOW factor. We cant wait to return !

Excellent hotel in terms of food, cleanliness, facilities, staff and views! We were so impressed from start to finish. pianist in the bar and rooftop bar with views across the bay.We were there for 4 nights and had no complaints . The shuttle bus was good and never full. Sorrento itself is beautiful and very romantic. We had little time to sit by the pool but there was always plenty of room and it was very clean with towels provided. There was plenty of parking and the tour buses did a door to door service. Only downside would b the road is busy with no pavement in places so not recommended to walk from the hotel. We had a view over lemon groves but could have upgraded.More

Off the Beaten Path, But Very Comfortable.

This hotel was definitely off the beaten path, but had great views. They have a shuttle which is great for getting in/out of town for free. While the room needed updating, this was probably the favorite room of our trip. It was spacious, clean and nicely appointed. Great, brightly lit, spacious bathroom. Wall mounted hair dryer that barely worked. We had a balcony that overlooked a farm. Only downside to that was the rooster that crowed around 5:30am.every morning. Front desk staff was not the friendliest, nor was the bar staff. Great veranda where you can have drinks looking out over a beautiful view. Dining room staff were very friendly and accommodating. Breakfast was average. Pretty much the same as every hotel offered. Assortments of pastries/danish, yogurt, canned fruit, runny eggs, cured meats, breads etc. They say rooms have WIFI, but the only place we could get it was in the lobby.More

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
