“Stunning view of Sorrento from Il Nido”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 July 2014

We chose an economical online booking with half board at the Il Nido, a hotel my sister had loved. It more than lived up to her high praise. The view from our balconies of both our spacious room and restaurant were glorious morning and evening. This family-owned enterprise has a homey feel. They were very helpful both online and in-person with suggestions for excursions and details about logistics. We caught the bus to Amalfi across the street after breakfast - very convenient. Expect that to be quite crowded during the warm summer months. It was a pleasure to return each evening knowing a lovely view and meal awaited us. It felt like such a peaceful retreat after a crowded day.

Room Tip: Splurge for a balcony room with a view.

We spent 4 nights at Il Nido at the end of June and had a terrific experience. We found the accommodations to be comfortable, the breakfast and dinner were very good, and the view was spectacular. Taken together - the value at Il Nido is very tough to beat in Sorrento. I would recommend staying there - but want to elaborate on its location and the shuttle service so you understand the compromise.

Il Nido is a solid 10-15min 'up the long and winding road' from Sorrento. This gets you the altitude to have a truly stunning panoramic view of the Bay of Naples, Vesuvius, Ischia and Capri. With that said - you are not "in town". Assuming you do not have a car - you will become dependent on their free shuttle -and I think they have evolved the hours of this shuttle to maximize its convenience. Essentially - you can get down into Sorrento easily on the hour in the AM, and they have plenty of afternoon/evening stops back up at the end of the day. If you are using Sorrento as a hub - this easily meshes with the ferry/train schedules such that I think it works out well. If Sorrento itself is your sole destination -you might consider paying a bit more to stay down in the town. With that said - we got to know Sorrento quite well because we would often walk new streets each time as we had different shuttle times to choose from (hourly).

We used Sorrento as a hub to see Amalfi/Positano, Capri and Pompei - and Il Nido was the perfect fit for us. I would stay there again in a heartbeat.

Room Tip: Pay for a room with a view.

We returned to Sorrento due to its lovely location and stayed again at Il Nido. Things only got better from our last visit. The hotel was the same - excellent accommodations, very helpful and friendly staff, and great restaurant. AND the view from the restaurant balcony over the Bay of Naples was again magnificent. I can't say enough how enjoyable it was to talk to interact with the staff - questions, thoughts about what to do, and just conversation.

The washing machine and dryer in the lower level are true bonuses when you've been traveling a while.

The hourly shuttle from hillside Il Nido location (what makes the view of the Bay of Naples) to Sorrento is convenient enough and timed for both catching tours and coming back in the evening. They have added a stop at the train station when you leave, eliminating the need to walk you luggage from the normal drop off point to the train station. This made catching a 9:33 train from their 9:00 shuttle trip easy.

Sorrento and Il Nido are both wonderful places to visit.

Room Tip: Ask for a room view a balcony view of the bay.

We have just returned from a week in Sorrento staying at the family run Il Nido Hotel. It offers wonderfull service from both family and staff. The room was
large and comfortable with plenty of storage space, en-suite bathroom, free
safe and a balcony with wonderfull views of Capri, Ischia, Vesuvius and Naples.
Bedding and towels were immaculate and changed regularly There was a
buffet breakfast served on the terrace, with the same panoramic view. A free
bus service to and from town ran regularly during the day. We were greeted
by Dino, who was very helpfull suggesting places to visit and how to get there.
Relaxation is always top of our holiday list and this was certainly achievable.
We have no hesitation in recommending it to others and returning again ourselves.

Hard to beat this - small, quite intimate, family run, good spacious rooms (go for ones with balconies), nothing posh - but what great food, service and views. We ate dinner in their restaurant and on their terrace every evening of our stay. Sorrento restaurants aplenty for lunch but often noisy and crowded. The fifteen minute shuttle ride was no chore, and we were well rewarded by the peace and quiet compared wit the town. Sorrento's good as a base for Capri and the Amalfi Coast, but apart from the currently running Picasso exhibition has little to commend it.

Room Tip: Facing the bay, with a balcony.

Il Nido is an excellent small hotel with an awesome view of Sorrento, Vesuvius, and the bay of Naples. The hotel itself is bright and freshly decorated and spotlessly clean. I've been in the hotel business for almost 40 years and am presently a professor of hospitality and tourism management in the U.S. I was very impressed with Dino, his staff and family. He was born to be a hotelier in the European tradition. I generally avoid hotel restaurants. They are almost always overpriced and mediocre, but the restaurant at Il Nido was a wonderful experience. So much so that we went out of our way to return to the hotel in time to eat. And the prices are reasonable. Our stay at this hotel just added to the overall Italian ambience of our stay in Sorrento. We couldn't have been more pleased.

When we first booked this hotel we were a bit concerned as they were on the outskirts of town (up a long winding road). They did offer a free shuttle to/from town so based on other reviews we booked it! After a long flight to Italy and a local train ride, we took the 15 minute walk from the train station to the shuttle at Piazza Antiche Mura and was warmly greeted by the shuttle driver. The hotel was a 15 minute ride up a large winding road which could be walked, but why waste the time?

We had a beautiful room over looking the bay where you could easily see Naples and MT Vesuvius.

The free breakfast was great and the hotel had this orange juice maker that alone is worth a trip back!! The hotel had fresh oranges from their orchard (you can see it from our room) and you simply put 2 or 3 oranges in the top and this magic machine makes the best O.J. ever. We sat outside almost every morning looking over bay and watching the occasional cruise ship heading in.

II Nido may be off the beaten path but well worth the 10 minute shuttle to enjoy the view (from the top of the hill) and the O.J !!!

Room Tip: Get a room over looking the Bay. Well worth the few extra dollars.
