Grand Hotel De La Ville Sorrento
Ranked #15 of 100 Hotels in Sorrento
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 29 November 2012

The Grand Hotel de la Ville is a good choice for Sorrento, Set back from the sea by a few hundred metres but sufficiently elevated to give spectacular views over The Bay of Naples and Mount Vesuvius. We strongly advise booking a room at the front of the hotel (well worth the extra) otherwise this incredible scenery will be replaced by a block of flats. The Hotel is situated in a quiet area about 10 minutes stroll from the main square, The standard of accommodation is excellent. Rooms are spotless, roomy and retain a lovely traditional Italian theme, Food here is exceptional; the breakfast is an extensive choice of hot and cold buffet. The staff are without question first class and so obviously enjoy their work.

Must do trips should include The Amalfi Coast down to Amalfi Town, Isle of Capri, Herculaneum and Pompeii. We hired a car at Naples Airport; very convenient but if you're new to these parts be warned Italian drivers are insane. Make sure you cover your insurance excess.

Sorrento itself is a beautiful town packed with vibrant bars and restaurants, many with amazing views over the Bay of Naples. You will need a healthy credit card though; prices are not cheap. On the Isle of Capri 2 large beers costs 18 euros.

In summary this hotel is good and we would certainly recommend it.

Room Tip: Must must get a sea view room on the highest level available

We stayed at the Grand Hotel De La Ville in October 2012 as a party of 6 friends. Our room was very comfortable and nothing was too much trouble for the staff. The food in the restaurant was delicious. The choices available sometimes made it hard to decide what to have. Enzio and his staff were very friendly to the 'Super Six' and always had our table ready and waiting for us.One word of advice, don't eat too much on the day of the Grand Buffet - it is spectacular!!

Room Tip: Choose garden view rooms for peace and quiet and sea view rooms if you don't mind a little traff...

We stayed there for 5 nights in early October and enjoyed our stay Very much. The room was large very well appointed and immaculately clean with some view of the bay of Naples and Vesuvius. The staff was friendly and very helpful and the restaurant first class with the waiters and servers working so seamlessly together that it resembled a well trained ballet. We believe we received the best value for our money one can expect. The lovation is also most convenient with the train station a short walk away and the ferry to Capri easily reached by bus. We shall recommend Grand Hotel De La Ville to our friends and are sure that they will have a nice experience there too.

We had visited Sorrento before and so had a good idea about where we wanted to stay relative to the central area and transport links. Surprisingly our hotel short list involved only Manniello Group Hotels, of which the De La Ville is one.
The bus from Sorrento Airport stops next to the railway station, and there is no need to take a taxi to this hotel as the walk is only about three hundred yards. Simply cross the main road and walk straight on for a hundred yards or so to the end of the dead end road, down a few steps then turn right and walk another hundred yards keeping right, then view the hotel on the left.
The rooms are very spacious and decorated in a classical style, with huge beds and a balcony, and it is difficult to see how anyone could be disappointed with these rooms. The room staff are very efficient, and the room was always made up while we were at breakfast.
As is general with larger hotels in Italy the breakfast is a step up from that provided by most of the smaller hotels, with fruit and hot plate options available.
A very good hotel, and a safe choice for an enjoyable holiday.

We spent one night here but would have loved to spend more! The hotel was well presented, the rooms were superbly appointed and the sea view spectacular. The breakfast was excellent with lots of choice.
Only niggle, when I asked for the wifi password the receptionist was a little off hand and said she was too busy, come back later- bit rude!
The roof terrace and pool were lovely but the pool was too cold to swim in although the day was warm :(
This was a great hotel, wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.

Just returned from a week in Sorrento to celebrate a birthday, booked through Thomsons Holidays, everything was perfect. Sea view room, Hotel de la Ville is an ideal location in Sorrento walking distance from Tasso square, railway and bus station, shops, with the added bonus of a sea view. Much better than staying outside town and relying on shuttle bus to get in and out. We did not do any organised excursions, preferring to do our own thing, and it was very easy to do that. The train to Pompeii is very frequent and takes about 20 mins, only a few euros each, also went to Herculaneum same way and got a private mini bus from Herculaneum railway station up to Vesuvius, also good. We went over to Capri on the jetfoil, around 27 euros return, made our own way around Capri, took the local bus to Ana Capri, all good. Bought a 24 hr bus pass for 7 euros each and used the SITA local buses to go to Amalfi and Positano. Sorrento is interesting in itself, had a couple of days looking round, Tasso square is great for people watching, lots of beautiful restaurants to eat at, we had half board at hotel so often had lunch out. Recommend the Foreigners Club, toilets there are free, information point Mon - Fri, lovely restaurant with stunning views for snacks or full meals or just a drink or coffee. Sorrento intarsia woodwork museum really interesting, cathedral worth a look, San Francesco church and cloisters also lovely, Marine Grande small fishing harbour interesting to look around and have a coffee and watch the world go by. Hotel Grand de la Ville excellent, lovely sea view room, evening meals fabulous freshly cooked local Sorrento menu, lots of fresh fish and pasta, included a buffet evening and Sorrento night with music.
