Il Nido Hotel Sorrento
Ranked #23 of 100 Hotels in Sorrento
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 27 July 2014

This hotel is up on the cliff over looking Sorrento. You have to coordinate plans so that you take the shuttle (hourly, ~10 min), but I found it very convenient. The staff is incredibly friendly and really make you feel like part of the family. The hotel itself (we paid the $10 extra for beach view) had typical (by American standards) rooms, but very spacious for Europe. If you're looking for fancy, then you'll probably want to pay an extra $100 to stay in downtown Sorrento. For the budget conscious traveler, this place was awesome. My only major complaint was the restaurant. Do not eat dinner at the hotel. However, complimentary breakfast is delicious, fresh squeezed orange juice (you put oranges in the juicer yourself), and amazing selection of pastries... there was other stuff too, but the creme filled donuts were so good!

The good - free bus to Sorrento and jolly driver, the views of Sorrento, orange juice machine at breakfast is genius.

The bad - hotel Fawlty Towers dated and probably hasn't been decorated in my lifetime, plus the rest of the staff were all pretty miserable.

The ugly - I have never stayed anywhere that doesn't even give you a bath towel. It was a large thin tea towel, which once I had a good laugh about would have been a real pain if I had not packed my own.

This is our third time staying at Il Nido and it does not disappoint. Travelled with our 2 kids.

A family run Hotel that really caters to their guests. The views are great and you have a free shuttle to and from Sorrento. We parked and left our rental on their rooftop parking.

Excellent breakfast and selection. Clean and very friendly staff.

Their restaurant serves very good food and eating on the balcony with the great views and reasonable prices.

Highly recommend.

Il Nido is a fantastic hotel. The staff are very helpful and friendly and the location is fantastic. Most of the rooms have a balcony looking out over the bay to Mount Vesuvius.

The breakfast selection is amazing and the minibar prices are extremely reasonable. I'd highly recommend eating in the restaurant as well, just as good if not better than a lot of the tourist trap restaurants in town!

There's a shuttle bus service that takes you up to the hotel from the town, which is very handy! Rooms are big and well equipped with air conditioning, I would recommend it to anyone staying in the area. 5* views and service at extremely resonable prices!

Room Tip: I believe most of the rooms have a balcony but confirm this when you book so as not to be disappoint...

Il Nido was one of the highlight of our time in Italy. A family run hotel the location and view is wonderful because it is cooler and away from the hustle and bustle of Sorrento town. The staff are welcoming and helpful.The hotel provides an excellent bus service into town but you can also get the regular bus service down (and up) the hill). the food at this hotel is exceptional, so good we ate there one night in preference to town and the wine and other drinks available are also excellent(special mention of the family Limoncello- outstanding). The hotel provides excellent information about the things to do and how to arrange them- trips to Pompeii etc. It was lovely to sit on the terrace and watch the Bay of Naples, the view is directly over to Vesuvius. The rooms are not 'flash' but more than adequate and many have their own terrace. You have the use of a laundry as well. There is excellent parking.
Overall this is a wonderful place to stay and would be of special help to families because of the great value, excellent food on location and staff.

Our room smelled like cigarette smoke so we complained to the reception and got a free upgrade to a sea view room. The hotel arranges shuttle bus service to and from Sorrento which is vital since the roads are very pedestrian unfriendly (lethal i would say) and the distance is about 5 km.

Breakfast contained freshly squeezed oranges, eggs, bacon, yoghurt, pastries, bread, ham and cheese. Amazing view of Sorrento, Naples and Vesuvius from the restaurant terrace.

Very stranges towels that felt like bed linen. Rooms looked a bit old but clean. Not soundproof.

Room Tip: Sea view is a big deal but can be enjoyed from the restaurant just as well.

Dear Guest,
thank you for choosing HOTEL Il NIdo for your recent stay in Sorrento and for your review. But let me say that the average rating sounds a little strange. I mean that you can't be surprised about the distance from the city center, as we always inform in advance our guests, it is wrote on our web site and moreover in your reservation. So you were aware about this, before the confirmation. Then the distance is the price you have to pay if you want to enjoy the gorgeous view on the bay.
We certainly hope to be able to host you again on your next trip to Sorrento.
Regards
