“Nice Hotel but not keen on Sorrento”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 July 2009

Our room was dark and dingy, the view was over the swimming pool and was not very picturesque! The furniture was old fashioned,but it was clean and tidy.
Service was good but fairy slow. Food it the garden resturant was good the evening meals where ok but not great! Breakfast choice was good.
The location is good with a nice beach at the sister hotel across the road The town is within easy reach, 5- 10mins walk to Plazza Tasso. I felt Sorrento was too touristy, busy and dirty. However we found the receptionist helpful ,when organising a coach trip to Pompeii and Vesuvuis.
The pools are lovely but the pool bars were boh closed.
We felt this hotel was unpersonal and too large for us. We where on our honeymoon and no one seemed to know ! Luckily we were only there for 3 days!
It seemed to attract older clientele so we felt very young in comparison.
I would not recommend this hotel if you are younger that 40 !!!!

We have stayed all over the world and have never booked to go back to the same hotel before but without hesitation we returned for a 2nd time this year and have already booked to go again next year having just come back. It feels like you are returning to family and the staff are beyond compare from the Receptionist Marrianna to the Maitre D Enzo, including the waitors,Gino and Bruno at the Bar and our special girl Flora who saw to our every need on the Rooftop Solarium.The Amalfi Coast is just exquisite and Sorrento itself beautiful No wonder they say once you have been you will want to return.

We spent a very enjoyable week at the Hotel De La Ville in June 2009. The Hotel's location could not have been better, situated in a quite street but within walking distant off all amenities, the main Piazza Tasso, the harbour, where you can take a ferry to Capri and the train station that takes you to Pompeii and Naples.

From the front desk to the dining room all the staff were warm and friendly, Enzo in the Restaurant was full of humour and always greeted you with a smile and a kiss!!. The Restaurant and food were excellent and the rooms were spacious and clean. Would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to others.

Thanks to everyone that works at the De La Ville, you made our stay very enjoyable.

We stayed in this hotel for 6 nights in June and it was great! We stayed in a superior room with a view of the Vesuvius. Magnificent! Although you cannot book a parking for your car, there was plenty of room in the garage and in front of the hotel. Very nice. If you want to sleep in, don´t book a superior room, as the chairs at the rooftop pool are placed in line at around 7.45 am.
The restaurant is nice, but you better eat in the town. That is so much better and nicer. The breakfast buffet is excellent for Italian standards! Fresh bread, various cerials, breadrols, all kinds of fruit, chees, ham, salami, jams, juices, coffee, tea and all kinds of cakes.

Just returned from 2 weeks at Hotel De La Ville. It's our second stay there and it gets better each time. Everything is perfect, the food, rooms, location, facilities and above all the staff are exceptional. Believe what you read in the reviews - it really is that good

This was our first trip to Sorrento. We chose the De la Ville because of its close proximity ty to the town centre. Piazza Tasso 3 mins walk. Its difficult to find things which havent alraedy been said. Enzo and his staff in the dining room treat you like friends/family. Food is just superb (portions too big!!) Hotel very clean, entertainment low key but good. Make sure you get a sea view We recommend you use the sea bathing platform at its sister hotel the Hotel Royal, no charge and 2 mins walk away!
Sorrento is expensive as a resort especially with poor exchange rate, but you only get what you pay for and everything is beautiful with no trouble at all. All in all there are hotels in Sorrento closer to the sea with slightly better gardens but they will be much more expensive. In a nutshell great quality, facilities and position at a good price!!

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.
