Best Western Hotel La Solara Sorrento
Ranked #9 of 100 Hotels in Sorrento
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 24 July 2013

You will be warmly welcomed into the Italian bosom by coming on holiday to this hotel. The service is unparalleled to anywhere I have been previously. Nothing more could be done including letting us have a room for a bit after check out to freshen up after a morning in the baking heat in Sorrento.

You are a little bit out of the centre but it does mean you get a quiet pool to use. 23m in length and 12 across you get ample opportunity to swim a few lengths or have some time with the kids. The free shuttle bus on the hour means its stress free to get into Sorrento which is perfect.

Gala night on Sunday is lovely and I just wish they had this on two occasions. You wouldn't visit this hotel for evening entertainment although by the time you have gone through 4 courses of food you probably are not ready to move far anyway. The fact that you occupy the same table throughout the week is lovely and the table service for evening meals is a joy. You also have evening entertainment on Tuesday and Thursday but this is repetition of the guys that play at the gala night.

I loved the free Italian lesson on Tuesday/Thursday. They do differ but we were only able to make one. The trip to Capri was great and we opted for the select boat cruise which meant only 12 of us on one boat, swimming off Capri and some free Peroni's did the trick.

The other trip to Vesuvius and Pompeii appears relatively cheap but you need to pay €21 euros to get into the two combined and €13 for lunch so this trip had a few extra payments which was a bit of a stealth tax.

The hotel is exceptionally clean which is very reassuring.

We were a couple aged 34 and 26 and felt that this hotel is more suited to those 50+ but we still loved it for the fact that it was nice and quiet. There were a few children but this hotel seems to congregate well behaved people together. So if you fancy Sorrento you won't go wrong by booking in here.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms on the fifth floor. You won't believe the balcony size The free shuttle bus ru...

Just returned from our second stay at La Solara. The hotel for us is perfect. The staff are very helpful, friendly and polite. Our room was kept spotlessly clean. The food, as before was excellent. The hourly free shuttle bus service is perfect for getting into Sorrento. We can not praise the hotel enough and hopefully will be making a third visit next year. Paul and Mary.

Room Tip: Choose a seaview with balcony for beautiful sunsets over Capri.

We booked the Hotel la Sorrento online on a B&B basis as we were planning to do a lot of sight seeing.
We did not specify a sea view and were given a room at the back of the hotel. However Nicola moved us to a room overlooking the pool with a balcony on our second day as it had become available. This was unprompted and gratefully received
As said by previous reviewers, both rooms were large, spotlessly clean and comfortable and we were given a bottle of wine and chocolates on the pillow. A lovely touch.
We only had breakfast and a couple of lunches at the hotel but the food was tasty and varied and attractively presented. All of the staff were friendly and welcoming - from housekeeping, bar and waiting staff as well as the bus driver. This is very unusual in a hotel - and really stood out.
We did drink in the bar in the evening and bar prices were very reasonable, more like pub prices than hotel prices.
I can understamd why people come back year after year.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view.

This hotel stays with you. I don't know if it's the fantastic staff, the amazing food or the superb facilities or probably the perfect combination of all three. I've stayed here three times now and I've always been bowled over by just what a brilliant Hotel it is.

Room Tip: Notify well in advance for balcony or sea view rooms.

Spent a fortnight at La Solara; it is situated about 10 minutes' drive from Sorrento, an hourly free shuttle is available from the hotel and back. The hotel consists of mainly British guests. It is spotlessly clean and our room was plenty big enough for 3 adults. We were welcomed to the hotel with champagne and nibbles and there was a free bottle of wine in our room. This was the ethos of the hotel during our stay. Each member of the team is extremely welcoming, friendly and efficient in every part of the hotel. There is a large pool suitable for swimming lengths and a smaller toddler pool. There is a poolside bar and plenty of sunbeds - no need to put your towels out at 6am as the pool attendant will happily put out more beds. That half stone of weight you want to lose before your holiday make it a stone before you come here as the food is absolutely amazing. Buffet style breakfast, lunches we shared in the end as they were huge and then in the evening, buffet salads and then a 3-course sit down dinner served by the wonderful waiters. Thanks to our waiter for 7 massive profiteroles one night!! On a Sunday there is a gala dinner where everyone is made to feel so special. We were especially privileged to hear Angelo singing on a number of occasions and, of course, all the way from Las Vegas, the hugely talented 'Pepe'!! Each member of the team should be proud of themselves from us all in room Cento Ventidue!! For trips to Pompeii, Vesuvius, Amalfi Coast etc, it is easy and cheap to use public transport which was also reliable. We would wholeheartedly recommend this hotel.

This hotel is wonderful. The staff makes you feel like royalty. It was a pleasure staying here for 4 days. You will not regret your stay here. Upon arrival they gave us a bottle of homemade red wine, and when leaving gave us a gift-a painting. So amazing will definitely go back!!! My one minor issue is the sea view I paid a lot for wasn't a direct view. Be very specific if you want that view.
