Best Western Hotel La Solara Sorrento
Ranked #9 of 100 Hotels in Sorrento
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 13 July 2013

We stayed at the La Solara on July 4th and 5th. The room was clean and spacious. There was a nice pool on the grounds. The hotel provides a shuttle that runs on the hour. This is necessary because the property is located just a few km from the main 'downtown' area. The shuttle was run on a convenient schedule which made the location not an issue. In fact, I liked the fact that it was located in a more quiet area. At night we would enjoy a glass of wine on the terrace with a beautiful view of the sea. The staff at the hotel were very friendly and helpful. The shuttle pick up and drop off is right behind the train station. One day we took a train to Pompeii, which was very easy to get too. We didn't have to pre-book the train nor a guided tour on-site.
We timed our trip on our anniversary. The hotel had a nice welcome plate and bottle of sparkling wine to help us celebrate. It was a nice touch. We would definitely recommend this hotel.

I spent a lovely time at the Best Western La Solara. A Beautiful swimming pool where you can lay down and relax, a lovely pool bar with amazing food. The staff are always nice and polite and ready to help you, in particular Fabio at the Reception. Another peak that makes la Solara different from all other Hotels is the "Gala Night" with the Piano Bar. The views are amazing, you wake up and you are able to see the Island of Capri. I would recommend any own to try it.

The standards offered by this hotel are excellent, both in terms of service, cleanliness and the food portions are such that you will not go hungry ! The hourly courtesy bus into Sorrento is brilliant and the cost savings of not having to pay taxi rides or for additional food (unless by choice) is significant. The fact that the staff have been working at the place for a number of years creates a strong bond and atmosphere - nice touches such as Sunday night Gala Night. The poolside bar (a huge pool !) with complimentary towels and gym are good - a 15 min walk down to a local beach, but too far to walk into Sorrento. Really enjoyed ourselves would definitely return.

Room Tip: Not all rooms will have a sea view - you will pay extra for this

What a pleasure to visit this hotel. We were both a little concerned regarding the distance from Sorrento town when we booked but the hotel shuttle was really good (a very comfortable air conditioned mini bus). The staff were all amazing, from the cleaner to the manager. On talking to other guests we were surprise to learn how many people return year after year. One couple have been coming back for twenty years and said the staff haven't really changed.
Although this is Best Western the impression is that it is very much a family run place, and it does run like a well oiled machine. Every one works as a team. It would be unfair to praise one member of staff more than another as they all work so well together. Sorrento is a great place to visit as there are so many places to see and things to do. Think I may be one of the returning guests!! One minor disappointment was the room, this was very dated and it was impossible to take a shower without flooding the bathroom. Beautiful sea view though. We stayed in room 114.

Room Tip: Sea view on 2nd floor or above as the balconies are much larger

At the risk of being boring, this really is a special hotel!
From the moment we arrived we were made to feel so welcome. The staff were amazing-so helpful and nothing was too much trouble. I have never met such a friendly 'crew' ! (Special hello to Nello, what a lovely man)
The food was scrumptious and so much of it, don't expect to come home without a few extra pounds! All tastes were catered for with authentic Italian courses always available
Lots of lovely little touches that made our stay really special
Thank you everyone at La Solara for making our stay truly delightful
...........,we shall return!

We stayed at that hotel 4 nights.
Very clean, well maintained, lovely view. Very good breakfast.
They have a shuttle to Sorrento every hour, which is very comfortable if you wish to go by boat for the whole day and not bother about parking your car.

Room Tip: Rooms with a view to the see

We really enjoyed our time in Sorrento at the Hotel Solara. Everyone is helpful and friendly. We had a room on the back of the hotel overlooking the brick wall...oh well, someone had to stay in it. People have complained about these rooms on here. But really, if you go to Sorrento to sit in your room and complain about the room, then you are wasting your vacation when you should be out of your room and enjoying this magical area. Plus you are getting way more for your money than you think. this hotel is VERY reasonably priced compared to other hotels in the area. I guess some people just need something to complain about. There are complimentary bottles of wine in the rooms. The pool is beautiful and so well maintained by Antonio. The shuttle bus is key! We would have paid a fortune in cab fare had they not offered the shuttle. There is no way you can walk into town. It's too far and you more than likely would be run over on your way there. No sidewalks on a very narrow road. It runs every hour like clockwork. The breakfast was more than we expected for being included in the price. They even had hot chocolate for our kids. Don't hesitate to stay there!

Dear "La Solara Friends"
Thank you for your words. This makes us proud and encourages us always to give the best of us. We wait for you in the near future to give you our best service. To get a better view, please, next time reserve a room with a balcony. The supplement is very little and you will be happier of your stay.
