Reviewed 7 July 2010

No holiday in italy will be cheap but I think this hotel is certainly good value for money. It is in the centre of Sorrento so easy access to the train station and ferry port if you want to venture to Pompei, Naples, Amalfi or Capri. The hotel is a very good standard and clean, the food is brilliant and having the roof pool and bar terrace overlooking the coast line is just perfect. Drinks are expensive so beware of your hotel bill at the end!

My husband and I spent a week at this beautifully appointed hotel with comfortable surroundings and first class service from all staff. We requested a room on a high floor and paid extra for a balcony and sea view which was well worth it. Choice of two poolside areas - ground floor with bigger pool offering more shade and a rooftop area with smaller pool and fabulous views. No problem getting a sunbed or umbrella - both free. We took half board and considered the choice of food at breakfast and in the evening excellent. The current poor exchange rate for the pound against the euro means eating out is expensive, particularly when you deviate from the traditional pizza/pasta dishes and want more than one course. The hotel is centrally located and a 10 minute walk takes you to both the town centre and the station. We would highly recommend this hotel.

This was our second visit to the De la Ville, the first being some 23 years ago. We were as impressed this time as the first time. The rooms are large and excellent., we had a rear room with a balcony overlooking the garden and would have preferred to be slightly higher than the 1st floor. The service, cleanliness and helpfullness of staff were all very good.
The food was very good at breakfast and dinner with plenty of choice. Overall a good holiday enhanced by this hotel.
Went to Herculaneum on train (3.90 euros return) and Amalfi on the local bus (7.20 euros return) Dont get ripped off with tour operators trips

We have just come back from a weeks holiday in this hotel and we had a fabulous time.
The staff in the hotel were so friendly and made sure that our stay was perfect in every way. We had a great room on the sixth floor overlooking theBay. It was wonderful to wake up in the morning and see this view.
The food in the hotel was excellent - in fact we were only booked in on a bed and breakfast basis but we found the food was so good and the attention in the dining room was so great that we ate in the hotel several nights. The choice on the menu was extensive - something to suit everyone and the desserts were to die for!! The dining room was managed to perfection by Enzo and his team and it was great to be brought back to the good old days when manners were the order of the day. After dinner we would wander up the road to the main shopping area.
We are definitely planning a return trip next year. Can't wait!!

We read all the reviews of all the hotels in Sorrento and decided on this one. The position is excellent very near to the centre. We were in Room 515 one of the best and it was lovely but we paid extra for this. The views were amazing. We were on a B & B basis but were given a complimentary dinner, which was just as well as would not have paid for it it was terrible. The breakfasts are very basic not much choice and definitely not enough fresh fruit. Food 3* standard and cater for package tour clients at 3* level. Also it is not the hotels policy to recommend any restaurants which annoyed us. Not the best place to stay if you want good service and food but good for location.

We were given room no 116 for our first 2 days of stay which was their worst room with no view and with rattling sounds coming from the kitchen till late night - it was also their smallest room. On our last day we were shifted to a different room which had a decent view and was spacious
Breakfast was Good with lots of variety, though the coffee was disappointing as per Italian standards
Location was nice with the main market area closeby
Value for money was not there

Not a great hotel but a nice hotel.I think 4 stars is pushing it,maybe a good 3 star.Must say things in defence,staff are really great and helpful,position is really nice in that a 5minute walk on the level takes you into the centre of Sorrento,or you can walk through an orange grove to take you into the main shopping street.Our room on the second floor was clean,bathroom was excellent especially the 2 washbasins very helpful,the view over an orange grove was fantastic with a view of Naples and on a clear day we could see Vesuvius.The only downside was the small balcony with a table and 2 chairscreated a tight squeeze and the curse of Italy the mopeds which passed every 3 seconds sometimes up the wrong way on the oneway road.
The pool on top was our favourite spot with great views and a great bartender,the other pool is somewhat enclosed on all 4 sides by buildings and in our week there never saw anyone using it.
Now the only thing we could find fault was the evening meal which we thought was not upto a 4 star rating,we had one choice on the first page either a soup,or antipasta,and the other page a choice of about 5-6 main courses plus dessert.The main course was disappointing nearly every evening,meat either chicken,fish or occasionally veal but all came with one stewed veg,potato or rice,A nice selction of fresh veg lightly cooked would have been appreciated at least they did`nt serve chips any night!
All told if we were to return to Sorrento. we would stay there again but only on a b&b basis.
