Grand Hotel Vesuvio
Ranked #46 of 100 Hotels in Sorrento
Reviewed 12 June 2014 via mobile

Don't get me wrong, definitely the largest hotel we've stayed at during our 10 day 5 city trip. Nice marble everywhere. But it feels so empty with it being so large, dimly lit, and silent (no music playing anywhere).

The staff at the front desk were wonderful and very helpful.

Dinning room is huge but food is lacking.. Some waitstaff were friendly while others mocked us at breakfast for checking our phones because we were checking in on family using the wifi (this bothered me being a waitress in the past, it was just plain rude). It was 9:45 and other people were still eating around us (closes at 10), clearly they were in a rush to leave. I felt very rushed, did not enjoy that at all.

Free wifi is wonderful and works all throughout the massive hotel.

Hallways on my floor (2) were very dim lit... And strange artworks covered the halls on our way to the room. But the room itself was VERY large, with a whole other room we walked into (extremely dim lit) with a few chairs and nothing else (seemed untouched and lacking in all perspectives). The bedroom was large with a very nice view (sea view balcony). But it's too noisy for me to enjoy sitting on the balcony because the main roadway is between the hotel and the view (and the massive "shuttle bus" into town is very loud below when unloading and picking up.

Bathroom very nice, large again, best tub we've come across in our rooms yet. Clean as well, very important.

Pool once again, very large, silent, not heated. We were all excited for the jacuzzi, no jacuzzi... Just a sub pool in the middle with the same temperature water as the rest of the pool with jets. When I asked the bartender he said it's never hot... I thought this was strange.

Overall was a nice stay besides the bickering waitstaff, wish I would have stayed closer in town though. Taxi from the port to this hotel isn't cheap (20+).

I 100% recommend this hotel if you plan to visit Sorrento. It is perfectly located 5 minutes away from the centre and has a free shuttle bus that takes you to and from town all day.
The views from the hotel are incredible, the pool is huge, the staff are friendly, the food is delicious and the rooms are a good size. I recommend a sea view room.
If you plan to visit Sorrento then the Vesuvio is a great choice of hotel!

Room Tip: Sea view is the best, great view to wake up to every morning

Stunning views of the Bay of Naples and Mount Vesuvius. So many Americans head for Tuscany. Campania is the original Roman Countryside and the Grand Hotel Vesuvio offers all the comforts of a city hotel in the Italian Countryside.

The best feature was the dining. The wait staff was plentiful, friendly, and efficient. Every meal was delicious, with lots of variety.
The view is stunning, the lobby grand. I did not try the pool
Because I was traveling alone, my room was small, but very well equipped and comfortable.
