“Charming Sorrento Hotel with Romantic View”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 January 2009

Thanks to other great Trip Advisor comments we booked Il Nido for our second anniversary and loved it like others did. Why: Location and view of Bay of Naples, owner Dino and staff always so helpful, clean room, good breakfast included and option for good dining. Located way up, so wonderful to have the free shuttle bus to and from downtown Sorrento. No need for a rental car with a SITA bus stop here to go to Positano and Amalfi. We stayed at Il Nido 6 nights. We were in Sorrento for our honeymoon for only 2 nights, loved it and came back and stayed longer this time.Great Pizza (wood oven) and other items just down from Il Nido at Il Borgo with place to sit and enjoy the view. Look forward to our return to Italia and especially Sorrento/Il Nido.

How terrible that I have only just now found the time to write a review for this wonderful place!

I found Il Nido after hours spent searching blogs and travel websites, and luckily enough found several glowing reviews about this particular hotel on Lonelyplanet.com - its not hard to see why.

Although the hotel is set quite far back from Sorrento (set into one of the mountains that overlooks the ocasta town) it offers a free shuttle service daily that will take you down to Sorrento and drop you off by the train station (perfect if you want to hope on the train and head into Naples and see Herculaneum). The shuttle also operates at night with several pick up times, allowing you to spend as much time in town as you like.

I booked directly with the hotel through their website and they were quick to respond to my request. The rooms are large and clean with lovely bathrooms, and it is worth the small extra cost if you can afford it to get a room with a balcony, as the views are lovely over the Bay of Naples.

The management were friendly, and are obivously a family as the hotel staff all seemed very jovial and willing to assist in even the smallest matter (I lost an earring in the carpark and the manager went back outside in the dark and scrabbled around to try and locate it!).

Overall, a lovely place to stay and we would definately visit Il Nido again.

I agree with all the positive reviews. We stayed 3 nights last July and toured the Amalfi coast and Sorrento. I would stay there again if I ever returned to the area.

There is not much I can add to all the positive reviews of this hotel, great hospitality, amazing views, excellent base for visting the area, especially if arriving by car, this place was truly a find.

For those using a GPS, on Garmin maps, the address of this hotel is slightly off. Here are the correct coordinates:
N40 37.065
E014 21.682

the hotel itself is about 10 minutes outside of Sorrento on the road heading toward the Amalfi Coast. If you're driving there via Sorrento, pay attention to the road signs since there are about 40 hotels listed on each one. Once you're on the correct road up the mountain, don't despair. You'll be convinced you have gone too far when suddenly the hotel appears on your left. This location offers true serenity if you're looking for a respite from the craziness of Sorrento, which is something of a tourist destination even when we were there (just after Christmas). Our quad room (1Q, 2T) was pretty large by Italian standards and had a private balcony with magnificent views of orange groves, the Bay of Naples, and Mt. Vesuvius. The bathroom was spacious and elegant by Italian standards with the best shower I've experience anywhere in the country. We had dinner at the hotel restaurant one night and were delighted with the quality of the food, the friendliness of the staff, and the overall value. Plus, there was the same view mentioned above. Breakfast each morning was, again by Italian standards, absolutely sumptuous: decent scrambled eggs, plenty of toast, ridiculously good pastries, fresh squeezed OJ (with a cool machine that entertained the kids), and a pretty decent attempt at American bacon. Plus there's that view again! The free shuttle whisked us to the station one morning where we caught various trains (very inexpensive) to visit Pompei (excellent) and Ercolano (don't miss it!). After returning to Sorrento and catching an early dinner, the shuttle was right on time (at a designated pick-up spot) to whisk us back up the mountain. Two computers are available in the lobby if needed. There is a special wi-fi room on the bottom floor but we did not use it. A few minor issues: since most European hotels do not have carpeting (like US hotels), the footsteps from above are very noticeable. The HVAC system is also rather frisky. We couldn't get it to work unless it was set on 28 degrees (hot!) but the system shuts off if you try to open a window to balance the heat. Ecologically sound but still irritating. There's a psychotic rooster nearby who crows sporadically during the night but not when the sun comes up. Some neighborhood dogs also proved annoying. Speaking of dogs, there is a hilarious one on the premises. He/she follows you around everywhere but runs away when you hold out your hand. Everywhere you go, the dog will be there. he/she appeared in the parking lot when we were leaving, followed our car to the exit, then barked like mad when we pulled out onto the main road. First time it made a sound. Il Nido is a first rate hotel run by friendly and helpful people. Don't forget to enjoy the view.

Tidy hotel with basic rooms that are a bit worn about the edges. Great value for the area with unbeatable views, excellent services (including convenient shuttle bus, free internet, laundry), fine restaurant, great breakfasts and really friendly staff. While it is not in the center of town, it is well connected.

Who would have thought one could find a modestly priced family-run hotel near Sorrento that has rooms with fantastic views overlooking the Bay of Naples, free parking, free shittle bus to and from Sorrento, free WiFi connections, a self-serve laundry, and an excellent restaurant that serves tasty seafood at night and offers a good breakfast with fresh squeezed orange juice in the morning? We would not have believed it until, based on other Trip Advisor reviews, we booked ourselves in to Il Nido for two nights. After one night we decided to extend our stay for a further three nights to fully take advantage of Sorrento, the Amalfi Coast, Pompeii, Naples, etc. All this plus friendly, helpful owners made I Nido "the find" of our extended stay in Italy. Oh yes, and if you're hankering for a delicious pizza also at reasonable prices in an equally friendly family establishment, be sure to drop in to Lo Stuzzichino on the main street in St. Agata.
