      Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel La Badia Sorrento

      Not for those who expect happy staff!

      from

      We stayed at this hotel last year. The staff are miserable, the food is grim and the rooms are tiny. I definitely would not recommend this hotel to anyone. The hotel is also set in the middle of nowhere. There is a short cut to the town but this is only usable during the day due to the lack of any lights hightlighting the shear drops!

      Home from Home

      from

      I have just returned home after spending eight days in Sorrento, staying at the Hotel La Badia. The hotel is family owned and from arriving all guests were made to feel at home by all members of the family who were in attendance on reception duty and in the bar. The menu in the restaurant had plenty of choices and staff were happy to provide an alternative meal if required. Evening meals were a pleasure with good food and pleasant company. The Gala evening at the end of the week was a great idea and all guests thoroughly enjoyed themselves.

      The grounds of the hotel were beautiful along with the views from the terraces and restaurant.

      The waiting staff in the restaurant were exceptional, all were pleasant and friendly - happy to try their English out on you and teach you basic Italian words.

      Although the hotel is just outside Sorrento the walk into the centre is not too tiring and the local bus stops outside the entrance.

      I can honestly say that most of the people in our party (from Riveria Travel) would have been quite happy to stay on for a longer time.

      Thank you very much for a pleasant holiday.

      from

      Hotel situation gives wonderful view over Bay of Sorrento.

      Rooms well furnished and cleanliness of high atandard.

      Food excellent. Situation from town overcome by short downhill walk

      of approx. ten minutes. Staff very helpful and friendly. I would have

      no hesitation on returning for future holidayJohn

      Very enjoyable

      from

      My wife and I enjoyed our week at La Badia and cannot understand the poor reports made by some people. Our bedroom was large and airy and very clean, as was the bathroom. OK, the towels were different, but caused no problems whatsoever. Breakfast was a little basic but the evening meals were varied, well cooked and well presented. The staff were particularly attentive and friendly, which enhanced the holiday.

      We were glad that we were a little out-of-town and away from the frenetic centre of Sorrento. Dining on the terrace watching the sun go down over the sea was particularly enjoyable. The walk into town would only be a problem to those with walking difficulties. We are in our 60's and found it quite easy. We would not hesitate to return to La Badia.

      La Badia our Haven in Sorrento

      from

      This is our 5th time to La Badia. We enjoy the friendly family run hotel and it feels like we are visiting friends when we return. Indeed, we often meet others, who like us return to the relaxed atmosphere of La Badia.

      The hotel is clean and well maintained. You could not find better views of the bay of Naples and Vesuvius anywhere. However in my opinion it is not suitable for children or people with mobility problems, due to the nature of the steep walk to and from Sorrento Town. The last local bus is 10pm from Sorrento. We tend to book room only and eat in Sorrento, however when we have had a busy day we do eat in the hotel and the food is good but with a limited menu - the sunset from the terrace while you are eating makes up for this!!

      Unbeatable Badia

      from

      A friendly family run hotel with views from Ist & 2nd floor bedrooms to remember on a cold winter morning. The staff were efficient and friendly

      and the food served in the dining room overlooking the harbour was typically Italian

      The location is very quiet on the outskirts of town with a steep and challenging 15 minute walk down into town although a free taxi service is available in the evening both ways.

      The hotel is extensively used by Riviera Travel who have an Exelent tour manager based at the hotel who made every guest feel very special.

      Our bedroom on the 2nd floor was spotlessy clean and the linen seemed to be changed every day. The air-conditioning was very efficient. This is a hotel that we would be happy to use again.

      La Badia? No goodia.

      from

      At no additional charge you may find as we did a dead spider complete with web, dust undisturbed since monastery days, largest tea towels I have ever seen then I realised they were bath towels (or should that be bath sheets!).

      The first evening meal we were presented with was a small plate of rice and herbs with one olive and a side plate of 3 slices of tomato and cheese. Not bad after an 11 hour journey and 8 hours since we last ate. Subsequent meals were no improvement monotonous, repititious breakfast and not much at all if you didn't get down sufficiently early. Powdered soup for dinner; ice cream or pieces of fruit for sweets on most occasions- coffee extra.

      Wardrobes with knobs missing or badly fitted. Cheap plastic bathroom fixtures or dangling by wall plugs. Walls mostly white but crumble if touched in parts due to damp which was probably also the cause of the large black areas particularly in the bathroom. If you choose to stay here try to eke out the soap and shower gell - one per person per week! 'Hot' water luke warm and in our case no water from the hot tap at all by the fourth day! They had failed to clean out the filters! Don't dare try to get compensation.

      Oh by the way lovely views!

      Lovely small friendly hotel

      from

      We have just spent a weeks holiday at the Hotel La Badia in Sorrento. It is just out of the town with lovely views across the Bay of Naples. There is a walk way down to the town which takes about 15/20 mins and is lit at night. The Hotel is small, clean and the staff are very friendly. The food was good and on our last evening there we had what the staff described as a Gala Dinner which was a more Italian type meal with live music and champagne. Even though we had quite changeable weather we had a lovely time and would certainly recommend this hotel - it was lovely.

      Way out and way off

      from

      We booked a week at La Badia based on a guide book and looking at their website, but some things can be misleading.

      the hotel does not have a restaurant as such, and although we had been in contact with them re airport transfers, we arrived at 10.00pm to find that there was no where to eat and they were not prepared to prepare anything for us, not even a cold snack or sandwich. Sorrento is a 20 euro taxi drive away which easily puts up the price of this cheap hotel if you intend to visit Sorrento each evening to eat. You may have to do this as an early dinner is served at La Badia and is over by 8.30pm

      Our double room with sea view had french windows that would not lock, a sideways view of the sea as the main view was a large hedge, and a pair of bunk beds had been placed in the room. Small unwelcoming towels, no toiletries.

      Breakfast finished at 9.30 am and in our case was served by a grumpy waiter who was already clearing away. A pat of mouldy butter was the final straw and we checked out the next morning and found somewhere more amenable.

      Terrible

      from

      Food in this hotel was terrible, and the menu choices were extremely

      limited. We got the distinct

      impression that all the food was of budget cheap quality. The hotel

      staff were unfriendly and

      unhelpful. All the bedrooms varied tremendously in size and quality.

      The location of the hotel meant

      that it was tucked away on its own outside of Sorrento itself (I found

      it to be a rather lonely

      location). Our travel operator advertised that there was a short cut

      into town. We would not

      recommend that this should be used at night time due to the lack of

      lighting and sheer drops.

      Perhaps we experienced a bad week but I would advise you to think

      before you book!

      ... brushed to one side. Not a distinctive style amongst the girls. All waiting to get out of school and out of here thought Larry.

      Pompeii is a huge site of about 160 acres. Excavations began they began in 1748 and many more acres await future discovery. A never ending works project for sure. Because it has been buried under 30 feet of lava and dust, and perfectly preserved as a result, it is the site that has yielded the ...

      ... I love each of these people dearly, and wanted this to be a memory that lasts. This ensemble has been together many times in the past, although normally we're gathered in Houston in my parents' living room, usually after some event or party, for storytelling and (more) wine. This time, it'd be a vacation for all, and I wanted the kids, their Nona and Captain Tom, and our friends to make some new memories in an altogether different place. Though we would not stay on ...

      On the way to Sorrento, we passed Mount Vesuvius and Pompei. The traffic to Sorrento was bumper to bumper the closer we got. The road into Sorrento is very windy and narrow and as it was a Saturday afternoon, there were plenty of tourists and hundreds of scooters and motorbikes. Eventually we arrived at the hotel which is perched on the side of a cliff, with 5 levels, the top ...

      ... on a Saturday and it is even more interesting as the motor bike riders are out - they all think they are Valentino Rossi in their leathers and leaning into the corners. We were told on Sundey there are even more!! However, it's well worth the walk. The photo here is looking back to Positano. If you look at the top of the hill in the middle of the photo, that is the main cemetery of Positano. What a spot, close to heaven and with the best view in town. ...
