Reviewed 28 October 2013

Recent travel to Sorrento landed us here at this lovely hotel...booked by one of our traveling buddies and what a great choice! Excellent location off one of the main roads through Sorrento. Beautiful entryway through the gates and down the drive with well groomed surrounding gardens and walkways. Excellent reception upon check in and imagine our delight at finding our previously booked garden view rooms had been upgraded to bay side. Our room was lovely and spacious with a balcony overlooking the Bay of Naples...quite heavenly! Ample storage in closets and drawers for five days of clothing, etc., inclusive of an in room safe (always appreciated when traveling in Europe). The bed was comfy with lovely linen sheets. Sparse decorations lend itself to one being captivated by the view. Wifi was fairly easy to access and free (another plus). Bathrooms were spacious and towels were nice and fluffy...however, NO washcloths here so be certain to bring your own if you are used to this US luxury! Gorgeous blue and white tile throughout the lobby, rooms and dining areas were very retro 60's...fun and energizing, yet relaxing. The "American Breakfast" consisted of scrambled eggs (an unusual orange color), hot dogs, bacon (not crispy) tomatoes, mozzarella cheese balls, salmon, cereal, fresh fruit and breads, cakes, etc in addition to regular coffee. Lovely array, however, no change in any of these items throughout the course of our stay. A little variety would have been nice. A beautiful outdoor pool and on-site spa in spearate building were easy access. A gorgeous tiled palazzo type area for sitting and enjoying drinks were also bayside. A bar inside the lobby area was open late and generally well staffed. Very easy access to walking uptown Sorrento to take in the shopping and restaurants. Only down side...beach access had limited hours and closed promptly at 6 PM. After all day site seeing, this was a bit disappointing as this was the time we would come back to the hotel for some relaxation prior to heading out for dinner. A set down by the beach would have been a lovely reprieve from the hustle and bustle of a busy shopping day. All in all, a perfectly lovely location, surroundings and a warm hotel experience...highly recommend!!

Room Tip: Fourth Floor Bay side was spectacular

This hotel is kind of specific. It has a fun, interesting vibe...very sixties. My wife and I would make jokes that the hallways by the rooms looked like dorms or a cruise ship or something. None of that detracted from our experience though. Splurging for the sea view was so wonderful. We would sit and watch the sunset with a HUGE expansive view of the bay all around us. It was awesome. The location is a little ways away from the center of town which was fine by us, it was overrun with cruise ship tourists anyway. Walking it was easy enough and cabs or the free shuttle worked out great. The staff was very helpful and the breakfast buffet with the gorgeous view was one of the highlights of each day. We loved the sun deck and swimming in the sea was fantastic. It has some interesting proclivities, but it made us love the hotel that much more.

Room Tip: Pay for the sea view. You won't be sorry.

My wife and I and two other couples just returned from a trip to Sorrento, and we had a great stay at the Parco dei Principi. The location and views are spectacular. We were supposed to have garden-view rooms, but when we arrived, we had fourth-floor sea-side rooms with breath-taking views of the bay of Naples and Mt. Vesuvious. Yes the rooms are a bit stark but they are very spacious. The breakfast buffet is large and has many selections. It is a bit of a walk into town but after all the great food you will enjoy in Sorrento you'll need it. The decor is very 60's modern and you can just picture Sophia Loren and Marcello Mastrianni strolling through the place.

Room Tip: We had rooms 411, 412, and 414.

Dear Mr. John,

I thank you for your kind review regarding your experience at the Parco dei Principi hotel for your last stay in Sorrento.

I am happy that you have appreciated the upgrade to a sea side room we were able to offer you and the view on the bay of Naples, Capri and the Vesuvio Mt.
I invite you to come back during the winter season, there are no words to describe the sunset from this point of view and the colors of the sky!

I wish to have the pleasure to welcome you back soon.

Yours, faithfully,

We really loved the views from this hotel - amazing!! Very nicely decorated lobby & dining room. Very modernistic and simple. My only complaint was you could hear all your neighbors on either side. Great buffet breakfast and beautiful grounds!

I thank you for choosing the Parco dei Principi hotel for your last stay in Sorrento and for sharing with us your experience.

First design hotel of the world, the Parco dei Principi hotel is famous for his 60s modern design and I’m glad to read that you appreciate the style of our property perched on the cliff and immersed in a 28’000sqm botanic park.

However, I apologies for the inconvenience regarding the noise you could hear from the room next to yours.

Looking forward to welcoming you back to the Parco dei Principi for your next time on the Amalfi Coast.

Best regards,

My wife and I had a short stay with one of the best views we have ever seen. The room had a private terrace and we found the staff and facilities excellent. The gardens and terrace are delightful and compensate for the hotel being well away from the centre of Sorrento. Excellent breakfast selection and a view from the dining room to die for!

We were in Italy for 2 weeks and this was our favorite hotel. After spending 6 days in Venice and Florence we arrived in Sorrento. We had booked a Sea Facing room. The views were amazing! This hotel was the perfect place to relax after 6 days of walking tours and seeing the sites. The room was large and furnished very nicely. We really enjoyed the balcony with the view of the Bay of Naples. The hotel was located about 15 minutes walking distance from the city center so very convenient. The hotel offered a shuttle service as well at scheduled times. This hotel has a restaurant overlooking the Bay of Naples. Food was good, however the service was slow and the waiters were not too friendly. We would recommend this hotel and will stay here again when we return to Sorrento.

Room Tip: Would highly recommend spending the extra money for a Sea Facing room. One of the best views!

Dear Guest,

What a beautiful tour!
I am sure that you enjoyed your time in Florence and Venice as well as Sorrento but I understand that the first impressions when you arrive in our hotel must be different.
The Parco dei Principi hotel is famous for its 60s design but also for the relaxation’s feelings since you enter in the propriety.

I appreciate your positive comments regarding our hotel and restaurant. However, I apologies for the service in our restaurant. I will forward your review to the concerned department.

I look forward to welcoming you back to the Parco dei Principi.

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
