    Historical Traveler Reviews Best Western Hotel La Solara Sorrento

    Sorrento in June

    from

    We have just returned from a weeks holiday at the La Solara hotel in Sorrento and had a great time. We had read all of the reviews on this site before going and were not surprised when we arrived. The hotel is well appointed and the staff really can't do enough for you, no matter what you ask for. We were away for my wife's birthday, and the chef had made a birthday cake for a surprise dessert, a really nice surprise.

    The only negative comments that we had, were that the hotel would be even better if it had a gym, or some other activities other than the just the pool. Internet access, other than that provided via the ports in certain rooms if you have your own laptop, would also have been nice.

    Overall we had a great holiday in a really nice hotel.

    Great Holiday!

    from

    Just back from 7 days at La Solara. Was a bit apprehensive at first as the hotel is situated out of town but this wasn't a problem in the end. The free hotel courtesy bus runs into Sorrento regularly throughout the day (and in the evening) and only takes about 10 minutes. The hotel is situated on a coast road but there is little noise and you can sit and watch the Italian drivers overtaking on the bend below - great entertainment.

    The hotel is clean, food is good and the staff are excellent. You will be part of the family by the time you leave. Nothing is too much trouble for them. You don't need any cash throughout your stay in the hotel as everything is charged to your room - drinks at the pool, dinner drinks, ice creams, lunch, etc and no need to leave tips (though we did at checkout). The staff just look after you every minute of your stay.

    Sunday night is Gala night, where the guests can dress up a little at dinner and there is a pianist playing relaxing music throughout your meal. The meals are good with a choice of about four main courses and starters every night. Breakfast is the typical buffet style with eggs, cereals, meats, etc.

    Beds are made twice a day. We asked for 4 extra pillows for our family and they arrived within about 10 minutes. The next evening we asked if there was any possibility of having softer beds as the ones we had were quite hard and we weren't sleeping very well - not a problem - beds were changed within a couple of hours.

    This is one of the best holidays I have had in recent years and would definitely return to La Solara next time when staying in Sorrento.

    Spring break

    from

    We visited Sorrento in March 2005 and stayed at the Hotel La Solara. The rooms, food and staff were excellent - nothing was too much trouble. Free transport was provided to take/return you from the centre of Sorrento -timetables allocated in your room. We will certainly return. An ideal place for couples, all age groups and families.

    Very nice hotel outside of town

    from

    Spent 3 nights here in May 2005 and enjoyed it. Our room was quite nice with a balcony looking out to the pool. Staff goood. The only real drawbacks were the location outside of town and the dinner service in the restaurant. They had a shuttle bus to town about every hour but if your schedule didn't permit use of the shuttle, a cab cost about 15 euro. The dinner in the restaurant was what I view as typical of a tourist hotel, only a multi-course, fixed-price option, no ala carte ability. Breakfast was good, with scrambled eggs, a meat, yogurt, fruit, etc. every morning.

    Couldn't ask for better

    from

    A great relaxing hotel with very friendly, helpful staff who didn't give the impression that they were always after a tip. The food was excellent, the rooms clean and tidy, and the one's facing the sea - what a view.The only drawback is the distance from town, probably walkable for the young and fit but the road is bendy and there is no pavement, so walking is definitely not an option for anyone pushing a buggy or walking with young children. However the regular shuttle bus easily compensates for this. In total all the pluses far outweigh the one small minus and we would certainly go back again

    An autumn break

    from

    25/sept/04 We booked a late deal with Thomson, like many of the people staying at our hotel, being situated out of the town its not everyones first choice hotel, but it is much quieter (apart from every vehicle bigger than a car honking its horn when it goes round the bend outside the hotel.

    The food is good, although the breakfast is not as varied as some of the lesser starred hotels in the area, not enough hot options and the croissants are like bread rolls.

    Our room was very clean, even under the beds! The air conditioning did not work because the hotel only switches it on if the temperature reaches a certain level, so our room remained very stuffy, sleeping was difficult.

    All balconies have a clothes airer, a table and deckchair/loungers. Hair dryer on bathroom wall ok for short term use, it gets too hot to handle.

    Rooms on the Left side face olive trees (no direct sunlight), rooms on the front face the sea and late afternoon sun, but your aware of traffic 24/7 and rooms on the right face the pool and morning/midday sun.

    General atmosphere of hotel, very relaxed, staff very friendly and look as though they enjoy there jobs! Grazie to Guiseppe on reception for giving us all the relevant info we needed when stepping out of the hotel. The courtesy bus is excellent as its not easy walking out of the hotel at night. Its dark and no paths or lighting, just a main road with mad Italian drivers.

    Lovely big pool, but absolutely freezing cold, The sign read 25 degrees celcius. Sun loungers are free to use and there is no fighting for the best spot its all equall and none of this reserving sunloungers with a towel!.

    You won't be disappointed

    from

    I stayed here from 23-30 July 2004, a charming hotel. The hotel is lovely, our room was very clean the air conditioning was a great help as the weather can be quite humid. Food, well it is plentiful and delicious, if you appreciate good food you'll enjoy being half board. The pool was gorgeous a good size and very clean. Staff were very professional and friendly. The location of the hotel is slightly difficult to reach to walk in and out of Sorrento (the walk is steep and there is no footpath and the driving can be a bit on the crazy side) but do not worry as the hotel provides a courtesy bus. It is doubtful that you will fail to enjoy your stay at this hotel.

    La Solara

    from

    We (2 adults 30 & 30) went as part of a Thomson package from the UK in May 2004. The hotels is modern, clean and tidy with very friendly and helpful mature staff.

    The hotel is a mile or so out of Sorrento which means its not as noisy as the ones in town and the free bus offered makes this a less of a problem. The bus is good but could do with coming back a little latter, the last one is 10:45. There is a local bus stop outside the hotel which we used a few times.

    Our room was large and modern with a sea view and large balcony, we did pay extra for this but it was well worth it. The TV had a couple of UK channels. Usual expensive minibar fridge.

    Food was excellent, 3 course waitered dinner every night and no buffets! Breakfasts good, but could have used a few more hot bits to choose from.

    Pool is large but a boring square shape, the sun lounger area was very pleasant. There is also a bar and lunch area at the end of the pool.

    Entertainment sucked, may be if you were older (like most of the guests in May) it would be a bit more enjoyable. Two cheesy dudes with lots of keyboards doing 70s covers is not my idea of music.

    All in all a great hotel, good base to see the Amalfi coast, Pompei, Sorrento etc.

    I want to go back

    from

    La Solara is one of the best hotels I have ever visited. The food is plentiful and excellent quality, the staff are very friendly and helpful. The rooms were very clean and towels changed daily. Although there is a road at the front of the hotel, no noise could be heard once the balcony door is closed (there is air conditioning in the summer). The hotel is outside Sorrento but a courtesy bus takes you to and from Sorrento 8 or 9 times a day. If the bus is full, the driver will come back to pick you up. I would definetly recommend this hotel for adults

    While our friends headed back to Florence to catch flights home, we took an hour train to Pietra Santa where we were greeted by Greg’s mom and Aunt Marion for more Italian touring. It was Easter Sunday so we went to church in the ...

The coastline too is very picturesque with all those buildings clinging to the edge of the cliffs. There is also a well preserved deep valley running through the middle of Sorrento with an old mill in it.The day after we went to Pompeii a ...

It was an awesome meal shared with neat new friends!  We ended our evening strolling the streets of Sorrento. What's so amazing is that even at 10:00 at night, the streets are alive and vibrant with an inviting outdoor cafe around every corner. Thursday, we'll spend most of our time on the bus traveling north to Assisi. We can't wait to see what awaits ...

    ... etc. The first thing we encountered upon entering the town was the large temple complex; after that we wandered down a less touristy path where we encountered Dream Girl. Basically, we were walking along and we see this one girl climb over this really dilapidated fence to get a closer look. We look at her, and she sort of shrugs and tells us to follow. We look at each other, and then follow. ...
