I just read through a few other reviews of the Hotel Bristol and am glad to see that there is a rare level of unanimity amongst Trip Advisor reviewers - it is not just me - year on year (for me, now, 13 years) the Hotel Bristol gives consistent, excellent friendly service and provides memorable holiday experiences - for all the right reasons. I have been fortunate to travel widely in Europe and America, so have much with which to compare the Bristol. It is not a 5 star+ Hotel or a business hotel. But it is a superb, Italian holiday hotel. I have stayed in most of their room types over the years. They are all nice in my experience - but it is well worth paying for the best room you can afford as their best rooms are just lovely. The Hotel has what must be one of the best views in the world, best viewed from the bar terrace with a glass of Prosecco!
One reviewer commented on the noise from passing traffic in the lower level rooms. OK, it is on a busy road, but it is situated just on the edge of town (easy walking distance) and it is a lot less noisy than in the town! Sorrento has the buzz and vibrancy of most Italian seaside towns. But what Sorrento has (as well as the views) are some of the friendliest locals you will ever meet.
And that is where the Bristol does rank 5 star + - its staff. They are, without exception, friendly, efficient and cannot do too much for you, so that you enjoy your stay. I am not going to name any individual, they are all wonderful and it would be unfair on any I failed to mention. There is also very little staff turnover year on year - a good sign in a hotel - to the extent that walking in the door on arrival is like arriving home amongst friends.
Do I recommend it? Most definitely = YES.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Hotel Bristol nestles into the cliff side, in one of the most enchanting corners of the coast, offering its guests stunning panoramic views, stretching from the picturesque fishing village of Marina Grande below to the Punta Scutolo in the distance and directly across the bay to the majestic Vesuvius with Pompei and Naples at its feet. For generations the highly professional Acampora Family have been offering a warm welcome to its international clientele, many of whom return year after year and consider the Hotel their second home. ... more less
