We stayed at the Bristol 2 nights before flying out of Naples. The hotel not only arranged a Smart car for us to cruise on over to Pompeii for the day, but they drove us down to get it and took car of it when we got back- we just handed over the keys. The staff wants you to ask what will make your stay enjoyable, either in town recommendations or services they can provide. They are so accommodating and it was the perfect end to our 2 week travels through Italy. We'll definitely be back. We stayed in a corner room and took advantage of the metal doors that electrically closed and slept in both mornings, but woke up in time for breakfast. The first morning, coffee was a bit weak for us, but day two we got cappuccinos and enjoyed the sun rising over the city. The upstairs open-air seating area begs one to just sit back and take a drink up there and stare at the water. The hotel is situated off a relatively busy road, but all rooms, no matter your locale, have a view of the Bay. We stayed on the 5th floor, corner room (510), which was perfect, though about 11pm at night, we heard them preparing for the next morning's breakfast. One call downstairs and all movement ceased and we slept soundly. This is what I mean by the staff- you felt they were generally sorry to see you go.
We will certainly stay here again- it is not directly in the thick of the bustle of Sorrento, but is instead up a hill over-looking the water. When you sit down on your balcony, you don't see roads and buildings that have a nice view, you have the nice view. Again, I would say that the road itself is popular and you can't hide the scooter sounds that define Italy, but other hotels I saw sat higher in the hillside, a little further back. For the price, this place is great and having dinner one night there is a MUST. The chef is great- we had the sole cooked in white wine and butter and the filet mignon. YUM!
