“Unforgettable experince!”
Reviewed 29 March 2012

Stayed here with my dh and two sons, we've booked two DBL - sea view and garden view. Both were exellent, of course sea view was as impressive and stunning as possible. Minimalist style in the rooms - but that's okay for me. Clean!Pool and pool area were nice. Breakfasts on the terrace - wonderful! Private beach - superb. Only one remark - a little bit far away from center of Sorrento (15 min)...Dream to go back.

Room Tip: sea view a must

Stayed in the Hotel dei Principi in October 2011. Fantastic landscaping and grounds. Isolated from the noise of the city by walls and the lush grounds. The architect was given free hand to design a complete package, not just a bulding. So, his scheme is carried out from floors to doors to linens to wall mosaics to tableware. Spend some time just enjoying his creative style. Comforatlbe hotel and helpful staff. Thre have been some upgrades without diminishing the original design.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the bay or facing Mount Visuvius.

The sad thing about this place is that it seems to have its 5* status by numbers, mainly as it has the amenities that qualify it for this rating.

The hotel is in an amazing location, perched over the Bay of Naples in Sorrento and has been designed by an artist, which is evident in all of the décor, throughout the hotel and each room. However, regardless of the comments about keeping the hotel in-line with the artist's vision the place is looking a little dated, tired and as others have said, like a large hospital ward. The bathroom is looking rather dark and dank and could just do with an update.

However, I found myself warming to the place. The front desk staff are very professional and the waiters are like the rest of the waiting staff in the region - friendly and very attentive, although the surly and grunting Maitre'D (also from the UK) was the only negative serving experience we had after days of impeccable service along the Amalfi coast.

The food was to a good standard, although the town has many other great restaurants. The continental breakfast was to a high standard too - people who complained are obviously unaware of what constitutes breakfast in mainland Europe.

Overall, a good experience but I would think that apart from the location this hotel deserves a 4* rating.

We stayed for a week last summer from July 26-Aug1, 2011. Was a little apprehensive at first because the hotel is located at the edge of town. But once we went through the tropical garens to reception we knew this was a special hotel. We booked a ocean front room and they gave us one, but without a balcony. So we asked to be changed .. and in 2-days they upgraded us to a bigger room with a wonderful ocean front balcony. Yes, the furnishings are dated but functional and comfortable. The rooms were very well cleaned.

Breakfast was included and we enjoyed it every morning. Only ate one other meal at the hotel becuase we foind the selection of great restaurents in town was hard to resist. It usually took about 15-minutes to walk into town and back again after dinner which was good to burn off the pasta. A cab would have been about $20.

The pool looked nice, but we didn't swim or hang around it. Instead we took the really cool elevator down to the private beach and lounge area. What a great spot.

The staff were terrific. The front desk very helpful. Would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: If you book and oceanview room, ask for one with a balcony.

We really enjoyed our stay at this hotel. All of our email's were answered promptly prior to booking. Upon our request, the Hotel arranged for a driver to pick us up at the airport in Naples. Our driver was right on time waiting for us. He was a very personable, safe driver and pointed out many sights, and gave us some great travel tips on our way to the hotel which we appreciated. It is about an hour drive from the airport to Sorrento. Upon arrival, the hotel staff quickly ran out to us curb side with umbrellas (it was raining). We thought that was very classy. The staff gave us information about Sorrento, explained the area with a map and then escorted us to our room with a tour of the room. Our room was very clean (2nd floor room #211) with a nice balcony and a lovely view of the sea and Mt. Vesusvias. The room was large enough for 2 adults to "spread out" with luggage and relax. The bathroom was also spacious. 2 sinks, hotel robes, nice oversized towels. The tub/shower typical of Italy. In the late afternoon after sight-seeing we would walk to town to do some shopping. The shops are open in the morning and then in late afternoon 3-4 pm until 8pm. Each town and or store is a little different, but in February many shops close mid-day. It is a nice (easy) residential walk from the hotel to the center of town( no hills). You will pass many private residences, hotels, cobblestone sidewalks with charming views into gated gardens. The pleasant walk is about 10-15 minutes from town. The hotel also has a free shuttle which runs at certain times and certainly convenient after a day of sight-seeing. I highly recommend the walk if you are up to it. There is a nice viewpoint about mid-way where you can see the city lights of Naples at night and is quite romantic. You also walk by a soccer field on the way to town, which we stopped a few times to watch the locals play soccer. The hotel has a lovely gated entry with garden walls and beautiful, lush mature landscaping that surround the hotel with mature palm trees, lush ferns and exotic tropical plants and interesting paths. This really adds to the ambience and historical significance of the hotel. The grounds were very well maintained on a daily basis, and it was very evident that the owners of this hotel really care about the property and its surroundings. The hotel also has very beautiful terraced outdoor lounging/dining and seating areas. Unfortunately, due to weather and time of year we traveled we could not enjoy the additional areas including the pool, but it all looked very lovely. If you are interested in hiring a driver to see the Amalfi coast and or a tour guide for Pompeii, I highly recommend you have the hotel help you book the tours. We priced it out online and found their prices extremely reasonable and all of their recommendations outstanding. A tour guide for Pompeii is worth the extra expense. Due to the increment weather, a driver for the Amalfi coast was important to us and also worth the extra euro. We were extremely pleased with Tony, our driver, who gave us a grand tour of the Amalfi and stopped at the best shopping places. We cannot say enough great things about Tony! We ate dinner at the hotel one evening, and it was delicious. We had the Pasta with seafood which was fresh and excellent. Breakfast is nice which included: salami, meats, cheese, pastries, a nice selection of fresh juices, cereal, eggs etc. For eating breakfast/dinner with a view, this is by far our favorite hotel. The eating area is surrounded by glass so the blue tile of the hotel stretches out to a blue sea of the Mediterranean. I'm not sure I understand some reviews that say the hotel should be renovated. We found the architecture and decor given the location and setting positively stunning and hope they never change it. We would stay here again. The hotel staff greeted us every morning and every evening, wanting to know if we needed their help. The young gentlemen who served breakfast and cappacino were friendly and hard working and always greeted us with a friendly hello. I highly recommend Sorrento for a centralized place to stay along the coast. Especially in slower seasonal periods. There are plenty of restaurants to choose from in Sorrento and also some great shopping. Some of the other towns were pretty closed up at this time of year, so staying in Sorrento made for the perfect place.

We don't usually pick a hotel based on the room itself or the view, but I have to admit that the views from our room were absolutely amazing! The hotel is a bit off the beaten path, and a little far from town, but the seaside views are worth it.

Number of rooms: 96
Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Five-star accommodation and a prime location sat high on the ancient rampart of tufa, the Parco dei Principi is a testament to the timeless creativity of Gio Ponti, one of the most enlightened advocates of Italian architecture of the 20th century.Between the blue sea of Sorrento Coast and the lush greenery of the botanical gardens, Paul Leopold of Bourbon, the princes of Cortchacow and the entourage of the Russian aristocracy fell in love with this incomparable natural scenery, giving it a solemn historical heritage.Minimal atmosphere and space characterises the 96 rooms with original furnishings designed by Gio Ponti and customized specifically for the Hotel: the famous headboard-beds (1948), toilet set 'Vanity' with circular mirrors (1950), the chair 'Lightweight' (Cassina, 1952) and large fitted wardrobes. A variety of ceramic floors - as many as rooms - in shades of blue and white, in antique Majolica D'Agostino from Salerno, to reflect the colours of the sea and sky of Sorrento: moons, circles, triangles, stars and leaves are also used to tell a different story in every room.At the Restaurant Gio Ponti, a spectacular window over the Gulf of Naples and its islands, the day starts with a grand breakfast. Through striking tunnels in the rock, you arrive at the private beach or at the equipped solarium on the cliff. The pier is home during the summer months to the restaurant Poggio Siracusa where you can enjoy the fresh offerings of the sea accompanied by the sounds of the waves below.Among the horizon, the ancient oaks and the rare trees essences of the enormous botanical park, there is a seawater swimming pool designed by Gio Ponti as 'a mirror of water to wood nymphs'.To restore harmony to the body and spirit, guests can access the Fitness & Beauty Center of the Hotel, the charming majolica rooftop terrace with a view, and the marbled terrace of Villa Cortchacow dating back to the eighteenth century, on which the first ballerina performed to the Court of St. Petersburg.Since 2012, the lobby, with the incredible view of the Gulf has hosted the 'Museum of the Opera', an exhibition of original drawings and furniture in the rooms and in the common areas that have marked the history of Italian design.The business center of the hotel offers several meeting rooms with complimentary Wi-Fi and innovative technology: from the classic style of Sedowa hall with a terrace overlooking the sea, to the most modern modular Leonardo hall, surrounded by the garden Bourbon, with a seat capacity of 350. The outdoor areas offer a pleasant alternative for coffee breaks, lunches and dinners.Within the enchanting scenery of Monti Lattari sloping terraces lined with citrus, Parco dei Principi is an excellent location for pleasant walks through the typical craft shops and luxury shopping streets in the center of Sorrento, and for excursions to the nearby Amalfi Coast, the island of Capri and the archaeological sites of Pompeii and Herculaneum. ... more   less
