... It was a small town but so much was left to see. Definitely, two top attractions for visitors to Italy.

Well, since we did not stay in Sorrento very long, we upped our stay in Rome. That will be in the next blog.

Thanks everyone for comments, looks and prayers.

Rome to Vatican City to Sorrento

... why, those who haven't seen it, should. It is a piece of artistic genius. The walls were painted by two groups of painters who were not names I knew. The Pope set them to work in competition with each other. Of course, the roof and front wall were painted by Michelangelo. We were told he said no for over five years before agreeing to paint it. He shut the door in the Pope’s face and spent the next four years doing all the ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Tourist Sorrento

    Great at Hotel Tourist

    from

    On the 19th August 2005 we arrived at the Hotel Tourist. This was a family surprise holiday for my husband's 60th birthday. My daughter, her husband, one year old daughter, my son, his girlfried, my husband and I all spent a wonderful week at this hotel. On the day of my husband's birthday the staff gave him a bottle of bubbly. The position of the hotel is brilliant, the staff excellent, the food good and we all wished we could have stayed longer than 8 days. The pool is great as is the roof garden. Sorrento is lovely. Plenty to do in Sorrento and very nice people who all seem to like the English. The bars, restaurants and weather were fantastic. Visit Capri, Positano and Amalfi. Can't wait to go back. In fact we could live in Sorrento its such a great place.

    Friendly, no fess clean hotel.

    from

    Stayed here while at a wedding in the cloisters just down the road. I agree you get what you pay for. Nice clean hotel with everybody we met was friendly and not stuck up. Has a nice pool in the back and nice views from the roof terrace. The rooms were clean and adequete, although you only got your beds, a cupboard, desk and thats your lot. However didnt mind as its only a place to get your head down, dont go on holiday to spend the time in the room. Hotel is only 5 min, if that, from the centre of Sorrento even if you took your time. Lots of side streets and night life if you know where to look. Loadsa shops and the bus routes stop right outside the hotel! There is a few shops right outside as well from a tobaconist, wine and spirits, restaurant/cafe, bars if you dont want to be in the centre, and more. Have to mention the late night porter, Luigi, now this guy is a star! Even when we wake him up in the early hours and continued to have a few beers in the reception area. Nothing was to much for him, he likes his Chianti if you wanna get him something for a thankyou. Also will teach you Italian while you drink. Cant be bad! The payed for food is ok but dont expect the Ritz! Some nights we didnt eat it!

    You get what you pay for

    My boyfriend and I stayed in the Tourist at the end of July/start of August 2005 and agree on all points made by the last reviewer. The aircon situation was just silly, having to ask for it putting on even though the heat outside was 35+ deg C (only for it to be switched off again within an hour!). We tried both an evening meal and breakfast (which were included in the price) in the hotel once and didn't eat there again! We didn't mind too much as we hadn't paid much for the holiday. All in all, the Tourist served our needs and we had a wonderful time in Sorrento. Rooms were clean (if sparsely furnished), it was close to the centre of the town and the pool was lovely. It was noisy at night with the road outside, but we packed so much into our days that we were too tired to notice. Not a hotel to get excited about, but not too terrible that it would spoil a holiday if you are willing to eat out (loads of lovely restaurants to be found in Sorrento so that's not such a bad thing!).

    Fixation with Air Con

    from

    My family of four stayed here in two rooms at the end of July into the first week of August 2005.

    Very basic

    from

    Me and my partner stayed at the Hotel tourist in Sorrento for 1 week at the end of June. We stayed on the third floor near the front of the hotel.

    Not bad for the money

    from

    This hotel now has a good swimming pool in the back garden, with deck chairs and tables - loungers can be rented, as can pool towels. The hotel itself is quite basic, but clean. The room we stayed in was on the 4th floor at the front, and was very noisy as the hotel is right on a busy crossroads. Good fun to watch the scooters and police though! We found that no matter how hot it was you had to ask for the air-con to be switched on, but it works well and was free, and allows the door to the balcony to be shut, keeping some of the noise out.

    Great location

    from

    Stayed half board for a week in Aug04. Location is superb, 500 yds on flat from main square in Sorrento. Accommodation fine and staff friendly, evening meal fairly basic. No pool but sun loungers on roof. (can use nearby pool for a fee).

    Traffic busy outside which is entertainment in itself in Italy but rooms well insulated from sound. Aircon in rooms but reception turn this on/off so check with them if not operating.

    Definitely recommend as excellent base to see Sorrento.

    Tip: if going to Pompeii take train (run every half hour each way), 4 Euros return, station 200yds from hotel and entrance to ruins right beside train station in Pompeii (half hour journey).

    What She Said!

    from

    i was on the same school trip last year as the author of the other review (titled 'stay here!'), and she's quite right! the staff were really nice, and the food was good, although watch out for the salad.

    it's close to the city centre and to the train station, and go to amalfi!! its so beautiful, really. i would definately recommend staying in this hotel, its really good.

    Stay here!

    from

    I stayed at the 3 Star Hotel Tourist for a week on a school trip in April 2003. The first impressions of the place were very good - there was a decent lift and an open-plan reception area, bar and lounge. Our rooms were spacious and quite well equipped, and the en-suite bathrooms were decorated to a high standard. The hotel provided us with an adequate breakfast, packed lunches (because we were a school group), and a very generously sized dinner. On top of all of this, the staff were very friendly, helpful and efficient. As for the location of the hotel, it couldn't get much better. It was literally a 2 minute walk into Sorrento Square where many shops, bars and restaurants could be found. It was also in walking distance of the train station. I thoroughly recommend the Hotel Tourist for school groups, or families looking for quality at a fairly low cost.
