“Hotel Gran Paradiso”
Reviewed 23 October 2011

My husband and I have just returned from a five day stay at Art Hotel Gran Paradiso in Sorrento, and have to say that this hotel exceeded my expectations! Our room although fairly small was more than adequate for our needs. Our terrace was wonderful with fantastic views of Capri and Vesuvius. The service throughout the hotel was magnificent and cleanliness was of a very high standard. Breakfast and dinner was top class and prices were reasonable in the reataurant and bar. The free shuttle bus service to and from the hotel was brilliant although to walk from hotel to Sant Agnello train station is a pleasant 10-15 min walk downhill but a little longer when walking back uphill. I would definitely recommend this hotel and am looking forward to returning next summer, 2012! Thank you to all the staff for their help and for making our stay perfect!

Room Tip: Choose a sea view.

we have just reurned from a short stay of 5 nights in this lovely hotel.our room was very large on the first floor and had a superb view of vesuvius and capri. we had a huge bed,must have been super king size plus.the room was cleaned each day to a very high standard.there was a safe in the room costing 1 euro each day.
the pool was large and easily swimmable in,not overcrowed and plenty of sun chairs/loungers available.beach towels supplied are free in each room,a charge of 20 euros made if these are not left on departure
wi fi available after asking at reception for a code.the recption people speak excellent english and are very helpful
a superb buffet breakfast was available each day until 10am.full english or continental ,plenty of fresh fruit,cold meats,yoghurts,rolls,tea ,coffee,juices etc
lunch was available ouside on the terrace until 3pm and consisted of pizza ,panninis etc.a piza cost6 euros.
evening meal started at 7pm which we found rather expensive at 25 euros each.this was a set menu and rather unimaginative unless you like artichokes that is.we ate here once only .there needs to be an ala carte menu available.this was our only criticism of the food
from the hotel a courtesy bus runs almost every hour to and from sorrento train/bus station a trip of 5 mins which is very necessary as the hotel is situated at the top of a long, rocky, narrow windy road. From the bus station a short walk of about 5 mins takes you into Sorrento where there are numerous restaurants,bars and cafes

the courtesy bus starts at 07.45 from the hotel so if you have an early flight back to the uk as we did a pre booked taxi at 6am will cost 35 !!! euros to the bus/train station a journey of 5 mins.
the courtesy bus runs each hour until 6pm and then stops until 9pm and this is the last one into town.
the return trip to the hotel is from the bus/train station until 9pm where pick up changes to the road opposite the supermarket on the outskirts of sorrento which is very isolated as it is dark and all the shops have closed at 8.30pm.ideal targets for robbery especially if you are on your own.there is also a last bus at 11pm from here
when we arrived at naples airport we were worried about getting to this hotel by ourselves but we needn't have been.across the road from the airport are the bus stops and at one of these there is a bus/coach to soorent obus station.the trip cost 10 euros each and took about one and a half hours .each bus is air conditioned
i forot to mention that the hotel does not do any transactions in cash.all drinks food etc are signed for to your room no and you pay your bill on departure.
overall a wonderful hotel and we will almost certainly be going back and have reccommended it to our family and friends

Room Tip: ask for a room on the ist floor overlooking the poolwith a balcony

Just returned from a brilliant week at this hotel. The views from the terrace and our room 208 were fantastic over the Bay of Naples.
The breakfasts and dinners were delicious and the house wines excellent and very reasonably priced.
The service in the restaurant (and other areas) was superb.
I agree with some reviewers that the exterior of the hotel is a little' past it's best', but with the superb location this is a very minor criticism which I have been informed is being addressed.

Room Tip: Not all rooms have a sea view so it is worth paying the extra and waking up to the lovely vista.

My husband and I have just returned from a 5 night break staying at this hotel. It is faultless -surely it has got to have the best position in Sorrento for views? Our room was huge (room 125) and looked over the pool and coastline - pure bliss. The staff were extremely helpful, courteous and always asking us whether we were having a nice time. I can thoroughly recommend the boat trip organised through the hotel (thank you Ricardo for the most hair raising car journey in my life!) - the day trip to Capri was one of the best days of my life and the boat was just beautiful. The cocktails were sublime. Just be a little careful of the sunbeds around the pool - you need a degree to work out the positioning! Thank you to everyone at this hotel (including the lovely waiters - superb!) for ensuring our first trip to Sorrento was magnificent. We will certainly return - ciao xxxxxx

Room Tip: Room 125 was excellent - certainly a room overlooking the pool and the coastline is a must!!

It was our 4th holiday at this hotel and will not be our last.
We had a full sea-view and it s amazing!
It was my birthday whilst staying here and on return from a day out in Amalfi , found a bottle of champagne on ice in our room!The staff are a real credit to the hotel , nothing is too much trouble. A special thanks to our waiter Ciro and to lovely Guiseppe.If you want a relaxing holiday this is the hotel for you. The courtesy bus in to Sorrento is wonderful. We had lunch at the hotel most days and it was always excellent and good value, especially with the stunning views.
We have come back so relaxed and would recommend this hotel wholeheartedly.

This is great hotel high on a hill looking out over the bay of naples with veiws to die for, mountains,sunsets,and of course the sea. The hotel was kept spotlessly clean the food was better than a lot of 5 star hotels we have stayed in around the world hot fresh and plently of choice. Now the best bit all of your staff are a great credit to you always cheerful, polite, and willing to help when we asked for a fridge in our room one was there next day with a smile thanks, with a special thanks to Ciro in the resturant a great waiter always willing to please, people like him make your hotel a place we would recommend to all. The free mini bus to and from town makes life easy as you can go to the busy town and return to peace and quiet and we mean quiet.You dont have to go to town for a cheap drink as the bar is on a par with the bars in town We have travel around the world and stayed in many hotels and yours is on our list of the ones we would be happy to return too sean francis

Room Tip: pay the extra for a sea veiw the veiws are breathtaking

As everyone says, the views in this hotel are fantastic. But there is no shortage of breathtaking views in Sorrento or the whole area. Contrary to what many reviews say, there is no need to obsess about getting a room with a sea view because, frankly, unless you plan to spend most of your time in the room (why would you?) you're going to get an ample fix of the fantastic bay of Naples anyway.

The real plus point of this hotel is the standard of service and the food. We stayed on a half board basis expecting to do our fair share of eating out but the variety and quality of the food on offer was so good, we ate at the hotel every night of our fortnight stay.

The staff are friendly and welcoming and any queries were dealt with efficiently. Our room was basic but very clean. No fridge, though, which was a shame.

The pool area is very pleasant and there wasn't the made rush to reserve sun beds like you get in some hotels.

The bus service means getting into Sorrento and back is easy.

I'd be happy to stay here again.
