Hotel Girasole
Ranked #50 of 100 Hotels in Sorrento
Reviewed 29 May 2012

The staff at the hotel were very welcoming, the service was personalised which made you feel special. The rooms were clean and had everything you need for a hotel. It was lovely to sit and eat breakfast surrounded by orange and lemon trees along with the beautiful flowers. The views from the room were spectacular. We have no complaints in regards to the hotel and the service they provide (including arranging the taxi from the airport etc).
The hotel is about a 20 minute stroll into the hub of Sorrento. Initally the narrow or even lack of pathway is a concern but you soon learn that if you just step into the road the cars do stop!
We loved Sorrento and would definately stay at the Girasole again and would recommend it to others.
Thankyou Hotel Girasole!

Room Tip: Perferrably a room away from the road, as although not a problem for us, it could be a bit noisy at...

My friend Moira and myself stayed for one week and we were treated like royalty. Rita and her brother were perfect hosts and nothing was too much bother for any of the staff. We booked a cruise around Capri and because of the iffy weather Rita managed to change the day for us, she booked Theatre tickets for us and because we had a very early start on our check out day, and because we would miss breakfast we were given a packed breakfast of rolls and juice, apples and biscuits etc to take with us. Everyone there was wonderful, the rooms were basic but spotless, the patio was in a lovely position with sun most of the day. The pool was very cold but gorgeous, and there was plenty of space for everyone. The bar was open each evening which was great when you came back from the Theatre etc. I would certainly recommend this hotel and will definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the garden and the mountains, as these are not on the main road. You can...

Very friendly, welcoming hotel. Pool area lovely and nice area in the beautiful gardens to relax in and enjoy breakfast. The only one criticisim of the hotel, as coffee lovers, we were very disappointed to find that the coffee at breakfast was out of a vending type machine. Apart from that we would definitely return. The hotel is on a very busy main road but after a very short walk on the road itself - there are pavements right in to the centre of Sorrento - so we didnt find this a problem. We love Italy and particularly Sorrento. Will definitely be back. If you love flowers and gardens with beautiful scents, and orange and lemon trees - this is the place for you !

Room Tip: Request a room not on the front of the hotel. It is extremely noisy and if you sit on your balcony...

This family run hotel is very welcoming and comfortable. It is situated along the main road from Naples to Sorrento and quite busy and noisy at times if you have a front bedroom. Because I have walking difficulties , I found the bus stop about 20 metres along the road and for 1 euro 20 was able to get around quite well. The staff are very helpful and always pleased to help you with information about the area . Cleanliness is exceptional and the continental breakfast varied and very pleasant. The hotel prices are also very reasonable and it was refreshing not to get ripped off when ordering the odd cup of tea or drink. Ferries to Naples , Capri and Ischia are available at the port and my daughter and I took advantage to do some exploring ourselves. This was a lovely holiday with lovely people and I would highly reccommend this hotel. Jacci and Jenny

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back of hotel if you are a light sleeper because the traffic can be noisy.

We stayed at this hotel for one week at the end of April.We were warmly welcomed by Rita and Toni.They and all their staff couldn,t have been more helpful.We had a room on the first floor with a beautiful view over the garden with Vesuvius in the disttance.We had breakfast in the garden every morning except one.The garden was fasinating as it had oranges, lemons and grapefuit all on one tree.We felt part of the family dicussing where we had been and where we should go, and laughing and joking with them.The food and room was excellent, and very good value. Sorrento is a place where you can go by bus train and take lovely walks in the countryside.We would reccomend this hotel.

Room Tip: Choose aroom at the back preferably first floor or above as it is quieter and lovely views.
