Best Western Hotel La Solara Sorrento
Ranked #9 of 100 Hotels in Sorrento
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 June 2010

La Solara certainly lived up to its rating on Trip Advisor. Really nice comfortable hotel with great helpful staff and excellent food. No hesitation in recommending this hotel. We will definetly stay there when we return to Sorrento. The only thing to take into account is that it is about a 10 min bus ride from Sorrento. The Hotel runs a shuttle bus every hour to and from Sorrento so this isn't really a problem. Thanks to all at La Solara especially the resturant staff and the team of chefs for making our stay one to remember.

We booked La Solara as a part of a Thomson package. We don't usually go on packages, but the direct flight from Glasgow helped make the choice this time. La Solara is set on the hillside a few minutes out of Sorrento by bus. It has beautiful views over the sea in front and the hill behind. The hotel is modern but also has style. The public rooms and areas are very generous for a hotel of this size. Our room, although not large, was clean, comfortable and a pleasant place to be. A small balcony with chairs and table overlooked the swimming pool. Breakfast is a buffet with an excellent choice of hot and cold. Dinner is a set meal with choices for each of three courses. The food overall was excellent. The staff are efficient and friendly and nothing is too much trouble. A complimentary shuttle bus runs every hour into and back from Sorrento.

We would thoroughly recommend La Solara.

We stayed for 4 nights and ate Dinner in the restaurant twice - once on a standard fixed menu (€25) and once for a Gala night (€30). Food was brilliant - service the same - dining room was a bit like a traditional UK hotel dining room in many ways as opposed to a restaurant...but then that is what is IS, in reality! Waiting staff superb.

Front of house - excellent. Nothing too much trouble. Very professional.

We were surprised at how many people had clearly been to stay at the hotel before and also the amazing welcome they received from the staff. In fact ALL the staff were very friendly - even the cleaning staff made an effort to greet you at every meeting ..and pleasantly - not just as if they had been "told to" by management!

Parking was free at the front of the hotel but very limited - probably a bit of a nuisance to get parked there in high season - we managed a space every night in June. Without a car it is a LONG way to the town and the hotel bus service would be needed - free and relaible but probably not as convenient as everyone would like - taxis down/up the hill are VERY expensive (€25 each way) .. but there is always the local bus which stops outside the hotel - rough but CHEAP!

Rooms were very "American" in decor etc but perfectly good. Beds very hard to be honest. We heard a couple of people "complaining" that there were no tea & coffee making facilities in the room - it didn't affect us and in our experience par for the course in many Italian hotels - BUT this is Best Western & largely American oriented so perhaps its something they might consider including to improve what are already excellent facilities..? Given the choice we would prefer the mini bar that was "standard fit".

The mming pool and sunbathing deck are EXCELLENT! Free sunbeds and towels and a pool "guardian" - food by the pool and a bar - all VERY pleasant. Apart from a couple of silly (English) women who insisted on reserving their sunbeds early every morning it was a brilliant experience and is definitely GREAT asset to the hotel - one which would persuade us that we'd return there again.

Just back from our holiday in Sorrento at the Hotel La Solara and we can't speak highly enough about the hotel.

Inside - The hotel is comfortable, cool, clean and very spacious.
Outside - The swimming pool is a very good size at 25 metres, there were more than enough sun loungers and there is also a garden for those wanting a bit less noise. The view of the sea from the front is beautiful and well worth paying a little extra for.
Location - The hotel is located a bit further around the bay than most however this is actually a blessing in disguise as there is less noise. There is a free hotel minibus that runs to and from Sorrento centre every hour, which meant we never had to worry about a taxi once.
Food and Drink - The quality of the food was simply exceptional. Dinner was a minimum of four courses each night with a Gala dinner on a Sunday with live piano and interaction with the chefs. The wine list is very reasonable and has a substantial selection. Breakfast is a buffet each morning with cereal, fresh fruit, cooked breakfast and pastries all on offer. The bar list at first glance looks expensive, however you soon realise its relatively cheap when you receive your 'free pour measure' drinks!
Staff - By the end of our holiday it felt like they were our friends. You can't help be charmed by their friendly and helpful service. There really is a family atmosphere in the hotel with everyone very happy to be at work!
The little things - Free Italian lessons in the hotel twice a week, your own table in the restaurant, hotel gym, welcome bottle of wine and chocolates, packed lunches if you're going out for the day and the free minibus to name a few.

Overall a wonderful holiday and a hotel we wouldn't hesitate to return to.

We spent two nights at La Solara and enjoyed it a lot. There is a nice pool area for relaxing in. The rooms were a little dated but very comfortable, clean and pleasant. The hotel is located a few km from Sorrento but there is a regular shuttle bus operated by the hotel that runs into town making it very convenient. The staff were very hospitable and friendly. WE ate breakfast in the large dining room/restaurant every morning and it was very good with a variety of hot and cold dishes. We would stay here again!

We have stayed in La Solara five times before this trip. All I can say is that it just gets better each time. That is not to say that it was bad to begin with, far from it, other wise we would not return again and again. Ugo, his wife and all the staff are very welcoming and attentive, from check in to departure. I was only sad that, due to a family bereavement, we had to cut our stay short. We look forward to returning to La Solara to celebrate our 40th Wedding Anniversary.

On each return we have not been disappointed; standards have not slipped. Staff are friendly, helpful and professional; rooms are clean and comfortable and have superb views over the Bay of Naples (especially the sunsets!). Food is excellent and the menu varied.There is a visiting duet on 3 nights of the week for dancing or if you prefer beautiful lounges to just relax in after dinner. The courtesy bus runs frequently into Sorrento and local buses run past the hotel to villages above.This hotel is a good starting point if you enjoy walking or there is a small beach below the hotel if you have a need to paddle! There is always a warm welcome at La Solara.
