Best Western Hotel La Solara Sorrento
Ranked #9 of 100 Hotels in Sorrento
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 25 January 2012

The staff at La Solara are definitely first class. Everything else was good, but left a little bit to be desired.
Our room was lovely and the view was nothing short of spectacular. My only complaint here is that they were rather stingy with the toiletries. We stayed for three nights and they weren't replaced once. The welcome-bottle of wine was greatly received though.
The breakfast was, I'm afraid to say, poor. However, I have come never to expect greatness from Italian breakfasts, and it's not a big issue when the lunches and dinners are so fantastic.
The distance from Sorrento is a problem. They have addressed it as best they can with the shuttle bus, but the fact is that you are a long way from town.

We had never been to Sorrento and wanted to go for our honeymoon as it looked such a fantastic place. We had the most fantastic time and could not fault any part of this experience the staff could not do enough to help us the food was out of this world along with the wine. We took our baby daughter with us and i was a little worried with her being so young an the first trip away so I was very worried how the hotel would be towards a 8 month old child and they could not have done enough to help and be any nicer the cot and bedding was just so perfect and the staff all made such a fuss over her it was lovely. I would defiantly recommend this hotel and would love to go again in the future.

My husband and I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights. We had such a great time here that we look forward to coming back. The hotel is clean, the staff ready to serve you and the breakfast is incredible. We even did dinner here on our first night because we arrived so late, but even dinner was excellent and the staff friendly. As for the drive...so you have to take a shuttle, it's no big deal. Heck your not driving the shuttle. The pick up and drop off are every hour up until 11pm. The drivers were exceptional and it only takes about 15min. without traffic. We had no problems and they were always pretty much on time. We would recommend it without hesitation.

Room Tip: Depends if you want an ocean view. If you are by the road it might be slightly louder but we had no...

It was an absolutely service-oriented hotel, wherein each one of the staff was friendly and desirous of serving the guests to the best of his ability. This was noticeable right from the time we engaged in some correspondence while booking on the internet till we left the hotel. To give an example, we were late for dinner and were the very last 2 people dining while the staff were packing up for thenight. I had left a dish half-eaten when dessert was being served. The attending staff were insistent on serving me an alternate dish cooked in a manner more to my liking even at that late time of the night and I had to insist on my lack of hunger to satisfy him! Such service is indeed rare!Apart from the excellent service, the scenic beauty of the place as well as the loveliness of the balconied quadruple room, the proximity to a typical fishing village on the beach nearby and the hourly coach service to Sorrent city all add to the uniquely pleasant experience at this hotel. Many other small touches during the stay like twice-a-day room-cleaning, etc were very nice too.

Room Tip: corner rooms with terrace or balcony are great for the view and general relaxation.

My husband and I came here for our honeymoon in October; we were recommended the hotel by my brother and sister in law, who stayed a couple of years ago. As soon as we arrived at the hotel we were immediately impressed, it was exceptionally clean, we were greeted with a glass of sparkling wine and our suitcases were taken up to our room. Our room was perfect. Again the cleanliness was outstanding; they even surprised us with a bottle of sparkling wine and canapés!! You could not fault the staff; they were very attentive, and friendly. the food was amazing!!! we were spoilt for choice, the quality was very good, and the portions were more than adequate!! We can safely say we would definitely recommend this hotel, we had the most amazing honeymoon, and will treasure our memories here :-)

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights. There are pluses with this hotel.

The rooms are well appointed, there are shuttle buses that take you to downtown Sorrento every hour and can even pick you up. However, the hotel is a good 20-30 minutes away from downtown, so if you are stuck here on a rainy day there is really not much to do.

Our hotel key didn't work when we checked in, when we came back down to have it checked, turns out they gave us keys to the wrong room! We were planning on taking the ferry from Sorrento to Naples and we asked if the shuttle could drop us near the elevator that takes you all the way down to the docks so we wouldn't have to lug our bags all the way down the many stairs and were told a flat out "NO".

The food at the restaurant was OK, nothing spectacular. If you have a car, while in Sorrento, this maybe the hotel for you, but we were not impressed.
