Best Western Hotel La Solara Sorrento
Ranked #10 of 100 Hotels in Sorrento
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 23 April 2014

This hotel is beautifully located, just out of town and overlooking the Bay of Naples. The staff couldn't do enough to help, bedroom was spacious and comfortable, and the pool area and gardens were delightful. Everything was spotlessly clean. The restaurant was outstanding with freshly cooked food which was truly Italian (as opposed to the 'international' style of many four stars in Italy). Absolutely everything was top quality!

Room Tip: Some rooms are only partial sea view, so best to check before booking.

We have just arrived back from a totally splendid holiday staying at Hotel La Solara. Not being regular travellers, we wanted somewhere that we knew would be safe, clean with excellent food and this hotel certainly met our expectations!
Everyone works extremely hard to maintain a high standard, from the maids to the chefs. All staff are so friendly and would do anything for you to ensure that you have a wonderful stay.
The food was delicious and very well presented with a good variety on offer, we even had a packed breakfast prepared extra early for when we departed which was really kind. The location was perfect, away from town but not too far, with a regular courtesy bus should you wish to venture into Sorrento town.
We travelled with Thomson who were also very good and have strong links with the hotel. However, one thing to watch that we were not informed about is that the hotel charge a tax of 1.50 euros each day for each person. We didn't know this until we arrived and can catch you out with a bill if you have not made allowances!
Thank you to all staff, we will remember you all for making our holiday very enjoyable.
Room 212 (April 7th-14th 2014).

We are quite critical travellers, but we could not fault La Solara. We traveled with Thomson, and when the coach dropped us at the bottom of the steep drive, a porter with an electric hand cart was ready to take our cases to the hotel, whilst we were shown to the lounge and offered champagne and nibbles. Our cases were identified and labelled with our room number whilst we waited, and then we checked in when there was a receptionist available. Much more civilised start to a holiday than the usual queue when a coach load of holidaymakers has been dropped off. The check in was efficient and we went to our room, our cases were brought up soon after.
The room was spotless. There was a complimentary bottle of wine, a large flat screen tv with 3 English news channels(bbc cnn and sky) plus a few English speaking film channels, and other local and European stations. There was a minibar, a digital safe and ample wardrobe / drawers. The balcony had a table and 2 chairs, two further deck chairs and a retractable airer.
The bathroom again was spotless with a large sink, bath with shower,hair drier,with soaps and shower gel provided. The room does not have tea / coffee making facilities as standard, but these can be provided on request.
The menu for the evening meal is displayed Around the hotel from early morning, and when being shown to your table on the first evening you are told that this is your table for the duration of your stay, breakfast and dinner. The dining room looks out on to the bay of Naples. There are adequate choices for the evening meal with pasta and other options. A well stocked and varied salad bar is available for grazing before starters, or to eat with you main meal. The presentation is of a high standard. The restaurant staff, like everyone else at the Solara are very friendly and helpful.
There is a bar in the lounge to have drinks before and after meals, with entertainment on some nights.
On return to our room, it has been checked , the beds turned down and chocolates left by the bedsides. A lovely touch.
Breakfast is buffet style. Again a wide choice of cheese / cold meats, cereals, pastries, bread / rolls, bacon and eggs a toaster, fruit, yogurts, and two coffee machines providing a variety of coffees and chocolate and hot water for tea bags and other coffees (e.g. Decaff) that are available on the table. There is a bin provided on your table to keep it free of rubbish / clutter as you work your way through.
The hotel provides a courtesy bus to Sorrento every hour on the hour, and a return at a quarter past the hour. We used this several times, and it was always on time.
The hotel can provide early breakfasts to cater for guests having to leave early for excursions or departures.
The heated swimming pool is surrounded by well maintained sun beds, chairs and tables and a pool bar. A pool assistant helps open parasols and take covers away. Towels are provided free of charge from the pool bar.
Everything is charged to rooms so no cash required,

There is a beach within walking distance from the hotel, but very little in the way of shops etc. so the courtesy bus is extremely useful.

The only thing to remember on check out is that the Sorrento council have imposed a 1.50 euro per person per night local tax which the hotel must add to your bill.

From the very moment my wife and I arrived we were made extremely welcome, before checking in we were shown into the lounge for a glass of champagne and nibbles to wind down after the drive from Naples airport. The Hotel is situated just outside Sorrento in the hills overlooking the bay, our room number 220 had a commanding view of the bay area and was very comfortably appointed - just a small snag - sometimes the shower pressure was low - I guess because of so many people in this fifty eight room hotel wanting to shower at the same time before dinner. All the staff without exception were very friendly and attentive and nothing was too much trouble.

Room Tip: Room 220 would be a good choice.

Dear La Solara friends Harrykendrick,
We just have to thank you for the nice words had.
Our staff being aware of your comments makes them happy for their hard work .
Due to the lack of water pressure on the main line water supply have unfortunately had a leak and it took a few days to adjust.
The management hopes to see you again in the near future once again to give you our best service.

Totally agree with other reviews that the staff are this hotels greatest asset. The location is lovely but not handy if you need to pop out to shops etc. After a long day visiting Capri got back 6.30 time for a freshen up then dinner. Wanted to go shopping as it was our last day But dinner finished around nine so too late to go into sorrento shopping. Not a big deal but worth noting. Food was lovely very generous portions and restaurant manager very accommodating was very happy to give the kids alternative meals if they didn't fancy anything on the menu. Hotel was immaculate but have to agree with previous review that the bathrooms etc aren't luxurious and some rooms at the side of the hotel have small balconies and overlook the pool and not the bay. Myself and my daughter had a sea view our room was on floor 3 we also had a lovely large balcony and a bath which was handy as she's only 8. My husband and son had a side room above the pool which unfortunately wasn't as nice. I would definitely go back to this hotel and am grateful to the previous reviewers for taking the time to write their reviews. Really helpful.

Room Tip: Floor 3 or above at front of hotel has best views. My room 312 had huge balcony and a bath Side ro...

Dear Mmb425,
Thank you for your comment and for your kind words for our staff, our service.
Our hard work is rewarded by your comments and we are proud for what we may offer to our valuable guests.
Sorry that you were not satisfied for one of the two rooms but we have to say that, unfortunately, not all rooms have a sea view with a large terrace. These rooms are the most expensive. T
he rooms with balconies overlooking the garden / pool have a balcony ( circa 1mt60 3mt60 x) are less expensive.
We hope to have you again with us and we try to make your stay with us an unforgettable.
Our best greetings from Sorrento

As a frequent traveller I can say this is the best holiday hotel I have stayed in, the food is almost fine dining, totally outstanding.
The staff are very attentive nothing was too much trouble and the rooms were spotless, we were surprised on arrival that there were no tea making facilities in our room we queried this and in less than 10 minutes it was delivered to us and kept replenished throughout our stay.
The location was lovely surrounded by lemon and olive groves, although the hotel is 3 km from Sorrento this was not a problem as there is a courtesy bus which runs every hour between 08.00 to 23.00 .

Room Tip: third or forth floor you get a sea view
