First of all, it's important to say that Sorrento is basically on top of a cliff and this hotel is at the marina which is at the bottom of the cliff. To get to town you have to hike up quite a bit. You do not want to climb these stairs multiple times a day.. The biggest complaint I have...

The hotel is steps from ferry, which is convenient. I did not find the staff helpful. I asked if there is laundry service. "No". No alternative options, just No. I asked for the lock for the room safe. When lock did not work, I got the shoulder shrug. The shower in room 408 is tiny. Barely enough room to turn...

Il Faro is great if you plan to use the ferry to the surrounding area because it's literally steps from the port. My mom and I arrived by ferry from Naples and it was nice to not have to drag our luggage up the 151 steps or locate the elevator... We had a great time and were happy with our...

Our stay at ill faro in Sorrento was delightful. If you are travelling on a budget, this may suit your needs. Rooms are small, but cosy, you have a choice of standard room, or like us, pay a little more and ask for a sea view room. But perhaps opt for a standard room as the sea view rooms tend...

Overall the hotel was good. The breakfast was not very good and didn't have many options. It's located right next to the pear. If you are coming with a car I recommend staying at a hotel in the city above, the car ride is very tricky and the parking costed 25€ and that don't say so in the website.

We loved the location of Hotel il Faro, particularly as we arrived by ferry; its so convenient being directly opposite the ferry port! But I can understand its not everyone's cup of tea being at the bottom of the cliff, but we enjoyed the stroll up the hill & steps to the town each evening. We booked triple room with...

We arrived at the hotel about 9pm and check in was good with lovely friendly staff. The restaurant stayed open late for us which was much appreciated. We were on the fifth floor with lovely views over the harbour the room was large but basic and very clean. Read previous reviews about the hotel being filthy we didn't see any...
