“Great!”
Reviewed 20 August 2014

We stayed 4 nights in Sorrento at the Hotel Tourist. Breakfast was good (both hot and cold alternatives were provided every day). The juice was disgusting, but everything else worked just fine. Dishes changed a little from day to day, but yoghurt/cereal and bread were always there. The pool wasn't very big but it was absolutely enough. After spending a whole day out in the sun, going for a quick swim felt amazing. Walking distance to the city centre with a lot of good restaurants. Rooms were clean and staff helpful.

For situation, value for money, helpfulness of staff, couldn't be bettered. We travelled to Sorrento from Glasgow by coach with Caledonian Travel/National Holidays - a very long haul but well worth it taking in Florence, Rome, Monte Cassino, Fuiggi and Montecatini Terme. The hotel has six floors but a fast lift. Food was perfectly OK with a good choice, rooms clean and changed every day and there was a surprise Gala Night with a free drink, extra courses and a 'parade' of the veal to be served complete with sparklers! Ask for a room 4th floor or above as the views are good and though there is a railway line at the back of the hotel you rarely hear train noise. Very easy access to Capri, Pompeii, Vesuvius, Naples and anywhere on breathtaking Amalfi Coast. Oh, free wifi!

Second time we've been and would go again tomorrow!

We stayed at the Hotel Tourist in Sorrento 06/06/2014 to 13/06/2014 and had our best holiday yet staying here was excellent, the people were very friendly and we felt most wellcome, Hotel Tourist is central you are literally in the heart of it all 5 mins from the bustling streets and cobbled areas of the town - amazing place, Sorrento is beautiful offering so much, you will also be 5 mins from the train/bus station. You must take a trip around using the city train which was great fun. A boat trip to the island of Capri cost 25 euros which was amazing and booking it yourself like we did in the town will save you a heap of money, we also took a bus trip to the Amalfi Coast costing 8 euros each which was well worth a visit - I have no hesitation in recommending Hotel Touist, the pool is excellent, staff are excellent and 3 course meal every evening was excellent along with the breakfast of course - 100 out of 100 and we will be staying here again as we didnt have enough visiting time to see everything.

Room Tip: Rooms were excellent 100 out of 100, clean and tidy, you are in the heart of it so expect town noise...

My stay here was very good!
The hotel was very clean, and the staff were all very friendly and willing to help.
My room, although small, was furnished well and was rather comfortable. It was an en-suite room, and the en-suite was fully functional. Both my room and the en-suite were very clean.
The food in the restaurant was quite nice; it all tasted fresh and flavoursome, and there was plenty of it. Service was quick, and the restaurant's interior was comfortable.
The outside seating area of the hotel was spacious and comfortable and rather pretty with all the plants.
The hotel itself was in a good location - near to the centre of Sorrento, but set aside from the main hustle and bustle of the town.
I would strongly recommend this hotel!

Room Tip: The rooms with balconies seemed to be a fair bit bigger.

Excellent location for everything Sorrento has to offer . Train/bus station less than 10 mins walk away , this can get you to Naples , Pompeii and all around the Amalfi Coast. Shops and bars across the road , most open quite late . Just out of the hotel turn right and walk under the railway bridge and there is a good supermarket. On Tuesdays you have the local market day , go straight past this supermarket taking the road going uphill for about 5 minutes and you are there.
Room at the back with a small balcony overlooking the pool was comfortable and kept clean. No tea/coffee facilities or fridge though. Air conditioning provided in the summer months at no extra charge .Pool area was nice and well kept . Breakfast and evening meal were both fine for the price we paid on a Thomas Cook package deal . Overall can't fault this place for a reasonably priced short break in Sorrento.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back are quieter and overlooking the pool.

Situated in Sorrento, near bars,shops,buses, train. A short walk down to the old streets where you can browse through little shops, the streets are narrow and quaint. The sea front is also a good 10 min walk where you can book trips to Capri from the Harbour. The hotel was very clean, food was good for a 3 star hotel, but the waiters were hilarious, I was like having Mr Fau.lty. and Manuel, we had a lot of fun with them, they were very entertaining ad they were very helpful. The Pool was lovely after hectic trips. Overall a good place to stay, especially if you had a room with a balcony on the street corner where you could sit with a glass of wine and watch the hustle and bustle. A very nice stay in Sorrento will be going back again next yer

We stayed here for 10 Nights, the hotel is a very good 3 star, the meals are lovely in the evenings and classic italian, if you are looking for a buffet type meal this is not the place for you, but if you are looking for tasty and well balanced traditional food then this place is a must! The rooms were clean and well maintained, we had a room on the side which was facing the main road but the noise was not a problem the doors are well closing and block out any traffic noise, the air conditioning was always on and made the room very cool. The Maids were lovely and friendly and the pool area was very well maintained. I would definately recommend this hotel it is central and good value for money Sorrento is a beautiful place, easy access from the station to Pompei and also a 15 minute walk to the port for the ferry to Capri. Free Wifi and a terminal in reception to use as well at no charge! Also there are lots of lemons on the grass around the pool area, these are the best lemons in the world!

Room Tip: Rooms to the rear are quieter however rooms on the front have a large narrow balcony and you can see...
