“Wonderful hotel- very friendly and helpful staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 May 2011

Just returned from a fabulous 7 night stay with friends at the hotel caravel. It was certainly one of the warmest, friendliest and cleanest places I have ever stayed in The hotel is situated in a residential area and is easily accessed, about 10 mins walk, either from the Circumvesuviana or Curreri, airport bus stop at Sant Agnello. On arrival we received a wonderful welcome from both Carlo, the manager, and all the staff, who I have to say were extremely helpful in passing on tips and ideas throughout our stay. The rooms we were given with balcony were lovely and had wonderful views over the bay of Naples. The hotel facitities of swimming pool, games area and bar were well extremely good

We stayed on B & B, as there are many good places to eat in Sorrento, however buffet breakfasts were great,...food at dinner was very good value and couldn't be faulted in any way. The staff were really fantastic even when the restaurant was almost full...nothing was too much trouble.

The hotel runs a regular free shuttle bus into town from around 8 in the morning until 11 at night. If you miss the bus its no real issue ...its around a 15-20 min walk on the flat into Piazza Tasso at the centre of Sorrento. Local train and bus services are good for getting to Herculaneum, Pompeii and the Amalfi Coast, as is the ferry service to Capri.

Just like to thank all the staff for making our stay very special - thank you once again

We found Hotel Caravel on the internet and would recomend it to anyone visiting the Sorrento area. The staff were very helpful, the hotel facilities, bar pool etc were lovely and clean and well maintained. Its location whilst not actually on the coast is ideal for acess to the Circumvesuviana train or local bus service, both of which are cheap and frequent. The hotel provide a shuttle bus onto Sorrento which again is quite frequent and free. Alfonso (the driver) is a really nice chap with lots of local knowledge and hints on where to visit. Should you miss the shuttle Sorrento is only a steady 20 minute walk away, or you can catch the local bus, and its flat unlike some of the hotels on the other side of town. They have stunning views but you`ll risk life and limb if you want to walk into town as the roads there are quite narrow, steep with no pavement in most cases.
We took breakfast in the hotel but chose to eat out on an evening purely as there is such a vast selection of restaurants in and around Sorrento. Breakfast was really quite good with a wide choice for most tastes. The restaurant was quite busy but the staff coped well and things were well organised.
If you are arriving independently at Naples, you can catch the "Curreri" bus right outside the arrivals terminal, (Bay 1 I think). It`s €10 into Sant Agnello and takes around 1hr 10 mins depending on traffic. The walk from the bus stop to the hotel takes around 10 minutes but there`s a taxi stand right by the bus stop. At this square in Sant Agnello is the train station for the Circumvesuviana, for around €4 you can hop on and get straight to Pompeii. This hotel is used by Thomsons and another tour company. As we visited in May we can't comment on the main season.

Room Tip: We chose a comfort double room on the 4th floor.

Hotel Caravel is situated near shopping area, marina, railway station, and Taso Square. All staff are friendly and will go and beyond to fulfil all our needs. Food is excellent (4 course sit down meal for dinner). Every day a different menu to choose from. A lovely swimming pool, a bar and piano playing every nite a piano playing makes your dinner worth while.

Room Tip: Any room is a best room.

Hotel Caravel is ideally located to explore the Sorrento area. It is only ten minutes walk from the St. Agnello Circumvesuviana train station for visits to Pompeii, Vesuvius, Naples or Pozzouli (from around 2.10 Euros to 4 Euros, depending on the distance). The hotel shuttle saves 15 Euros taxi trip to the centre of Sorrento, or walk it in 25 minutes. From there, the boat to Capri is about 20 Euros and bus along the Amalfi coast is 7 Euros return. (You catch the Amalfi bus at the Circumvesuviana train station in Sorrento). To get to the port, catch EAV bus C (orange city bus for 1.40 Euros.
The hotel room is large and recently remodelled with a pleasing Mediterranean ceramics decor. All the public areas are inviting and the buffet breakfast is extensive and served in a nice room with views to the garden. We found the staff especially welcoming and helpful and have absoluteley no hestitaion to return, with one reservation... the bathroom sounds from another room were quite loud.
To see Vesuvius, take the train to Pompeii and at the station there, turn right to enter Pompeii or left to catch the bus to the top of Vesuvius. This is a great experience for 20 Euros. You walk the last 20 minutes for an astounding view into the crater and around the Naples area.
To get to or from the airport, the Carreli bus works well. It is right outside the arrivals gate. You buy the ticket from the driver (10 Euros) and the drive along the coast is beautiful. He'll drop you in the main square in St. Agnelli, which is a short walk to the hotel, or continue to Sorrento if you are staying elsewhere.
Another tip: to get a seat on the Amalfi coast bus, be at the bus stop half an hour early or be prepared to stand.

Room Tip: Nice cafe and view at the bottom of the street

Just returned after a fabulous 7 night holiday from this little gem called "The Caravel Hotel". It was one of the classiest, friendliest, cleanest hotels I have stayed in. The staff were terrific - too many to mention but I have to - a special thanks to Mario for taking all my emails and provided a lovely bedroom on the fourth floor (superior with balcon) and lovely view of the mountains it was large and quite - Mickaela and Marieangela in reception were so friendly and helpful all the time. Max in the bar became our friend and looked after us very well as did Giuseppe and Roberta. We were half board and enjoyed our meal every evening - the breakfast was excellent and the kind manager obliged my sister and my self by organising an omellette for us. We had lunch on the patio twice and loved the setting. The Caravel is about 25 minutes walk to Sorrento which we walked on our first morning but after that took the free shuttle which went every hour - the last one at night was 22.35. My sister, cousin and I loved the Caravel - we would all stay there again and thanks to all the staff for making our first stay at the Hotel Caravel a very pleasant experience.
