Il Nido Hotel Sorrento
Ranked #23 of 100 Hotels in Sorrento
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 7 November 2007

We were very fortunate to have booked this hotel for 5 nights. We immediately felt right at home, and almost part of the family that has run this hotel for many years. Every guest is given a warm welcome and given a detailed paper describing how to get around. We did have a car, but it is not needed because the hotel has a free shuttle and the public bus stops across the street. What it doesn't have in elegance, it makes up in charm. High on the hill above Sorrento the view is wonderful, whether you are having the buffet breakfast (exceptional pastries) or the lovely dinners (the fresh fish was superb), the dining area overlooks the water. True, some showers are quite small so let Deno know when you make a reservation if that bothers you, as there are rooms that have been updated. We found that Deno goes out of his way to ensure all guests have a pleasant experience. This was an excellent home base for visiting Capri, Amalfi Coast, Pompeii, Vesuvious, and Naples.

We stayed at Il Nido for four days while in the Sorrento region. This is a family-owned, family-run hotel; the effort and care shows. The staff are personable, helpful, and accomodating.

The restaurant is top-notch.

Il Nido is outside of town but if you aren't driving you can easily get in and out of Sorrento by using the hotel's free van service.

Book this hotel if you want a relaxing atmosphere, great views, fine food, reasonable rates, and gracious hosts.

My husband & I just returned from 2 beautiful weeks in Italy, and we spent 2 nights in mid-October at Hotel Il Nido (means "the nest") in Sorrento. To begin with, they have an outstanding website, which includes a live webcam view of the Bay of Naples and Mt. Vesuvius. (The webcam is on the roof of the hotel.) We were able to make our reservations on-line, see photos, and ask questions. (They speak excellent English, and respond quickly to e-mails.) The hotel is family-owned and operated, by the children of the people who built the hotel over 40 years ago, and you can tell they take great pride in what they do. Our room was not fancy, but it was large and airy, with a balcony and great view. The continental breakfast was extensive and of excellent quality, including a large assortment of wonderful pastries. The hotel restaurant is so good, it's worth a trip there even if you aren't staying at the hotel! They don't serve lunch, but they serve incredible dinners. Every part of the hotel was clean, and nicely decorated. Despite the miserable exchange rate, our room cost about $100 a night. The hotel provides free regular shuttle service down the hill into town & back again, all day and until 11:30pm. There are a lot of hotels winding up the hill on Via Nastro Verde, but I think this was the best combination of a beautiful property, first-rate food, competent & caring owners, and a reasonable price. I have been recommending it to all my friends.

I cannot find anything negative to say about our three night stay at Il Nido. The service, staff, view, food, room, etc were excellent. I had prior to booking Il Nido booked for another Hotel, but on reading reviews for that Hotel decided to cancel and re-book with Il Nido after reading Tripadvisor reviews. So glad we did as this Hotel definitely lived up to the reviews. The Hotel's bus service was A1 and even on our arrival at the train station in Sorrento, after our phone call they came to collect us. This exceptional service was the start of more of the same. So glad we took the advice and stayed in this quiet area of Sorrento and not down amongst the scooters. I recommend the restaurant as well. The food was very reasonably priced and the complimentary aperitifs and bruschetta each evening was a nice touch, The breakfasts were a nice change from the usual Italian breads, cheeses, etc with some eggs, chipolatas, tomato and bacon. Always excellent coffee. The views across the Bay of Naples to Mt. Versuvius were million dollar views without the price tag.

We stayed at Il nido for 7 nights, and enjoyed every minute of our time in the hotel and in the Sorrento area.

Our room was a generous size, with a good sized bathroom. Both were spotlessly clean. The room had a balcony with a fabulous view to Vesuvius across the Bay of Naples.

The breakfast was delicious and in a lovely setting, again with a balcony, with a stunning view. We ate several times at the hotel restaurant, although we ahdn't anticipated doing so. The food was excellent, and well priced.

We had been slightly concerned about the hotel's situation, up a steep, unpavemented road, about 5 km out of Sorrento. However, this eventually proved to be an advantage, as the view was far superior to that had from sorrento, plus it was quiet and free from the smell of petrol fumes. In any case the courtesy mini bus was regular and reliable, AND we discovered a car free track behind the hotel, which led to Sorrento, through olive groves, etc, and also led up to S. Agathe which was a lovely town to visit, and the start of other walks down to the Amalfi Coast.

The staff at Il Nido are hard working polite and very helpful. I would recommend it and definitely hope to go again.

Hotel Il Nido was great. We called from the train station and they picked us up, as promised for no charge and arrived quickly! the shuttle (free!) was very convenient and the driver was wonderful. The owner of the hotel is a bit rough around the edges, but cares about making your stay very nice. he isn't as friendly as other front desk folks at hotels - he's very matter of fact, which can be a bit off-putting, but he gets the job done - and well done. our room had a wonderful view, we had a nice bathroom and everything was very clean. The beds were a bit stiff, but comfy enough for a good night's sleep. we ate dinner at il nido one night and it was FABOO, very yummy, reasonably priced and very good service. nice view from outside if you can sit on the porch. the internet is free which is a plus, but you can't walk to town, it's too far and the road is windy and for cars only - you could walk but it would be risky. the shuttle makes up for this but if you want to stay in sorrento than this isnt the hotel for you. if you want a view and a nice quiet hotel then il nido is for you! very reasonably priced.

This is as good as it gets if you want great value in a a great place. Wonderful family (ever present Dino) in a spectacular setting. Rooms are clean and pleasant, breakfast buffet is large, varied and delicious. Absolutely wonderful evening restaurant with affordable prices. Convenient minibus eliminates need for a car and tour buses will pick you up and drop you off directly in front of hotel. We rented 5 rooms for 5 nights and all loved this small hotel. This is a great place run by a great family and I plan to stay there again next year, the following year and the year after that!!
