Just returned from our first ever visit to Sorrento. We chose Hotel De La Ville mainly from reading the reviews on this site and we were not disappointed . Travelling with First Choice we were promised at least a side sea view, our room though was on the 1st floor, so no view, but it suited us and I'm sure if we had complained we would have been moved. The views from the rooftop are spectacular especially at night, sunsets are amazing. Well, what can I say about the staff! everyone was so friendly, reception, porter, chambermaids, bar (Gino and team), and the restaurant under the watchful eye of Enzo who was so charming. His team were brilliant and the food excellent.
The hotel is situated 5 minutes walk from the centre of Sorrento, the train station and bus stops. We booked for 3 excursions which were quite expensive (Herculaneum/Vesuvius, Capri, Salerno/Paestum), but found the guides very informative. Note that admission to sites and also lunch is not included on most trips, they do prearrange a set lunch at a restaurant which can cost an extra 11-15 euros a head. You can decline this if you wish, which we did on the Salerno trip having bought rolls in Sorrento before going. Check out the patisserie on the main street, just past the supermarket. 3 euros for an enormous ham roll!! We made our own way to Pompeii on the train, which is really cheap, and would really recommend this as the site is huge and we spent the whole day there without being on a time schedule.
We are already thinking about a return trip to this hotel, it is rare to find somewhere that is so perfect and that make their guests feel so welcome.
