"Excellent stay for Almafi coast / Pompeii visit"
Stayed here for 4 nights.little off the big crowd,but worth it.The view is spectacular .Can't beat the price. It's a family run facility with outstanding service. Helpful in every way.Not advisable for handicapped people,since the Hotel is not that easy to reach with heavy luggage from the street level.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Beautiful View Above Sorrento"
The hotel is 7km from the train station up a lovely road. There is a bus stop directly in front of the hotel. Save 40 euro and take the bus! The views from the hotel are stunning! There is a rooftop sun deck and the pool looked lovely. We felt the staff were not very welcoming but they did assist with dinner reservations and purchasing bus tickets. […] The breakfast was very nice and included the beautiful views. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Ciao Bella Italia"
We’re home sweet home in Naples, Florida. Wonderful Italy experiences, culture, art, food, wine, history, lure and lore. Lots of great people connections especially our hoteliers ... small family-owned ... and a delightful way to feel welcomed in Italy. We give this hotel highest marks and recommend it heartily. Thank you Sorrento for Hotel Villa Fiorita. […] Lots of love, always and ever. Hugs-a-million. Susie & Dick Hilton ~ Naples, Florida, USA. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Place to stay!"
We had paid extra for a water view & this place has THE VIEW! Lying in bed in the morning watching the sun come flooding into the room, then in the evening watching the mood glide up over the mountains, the patio so you can stay in your room, if you want, & watch the world go peacefully by. The breakfast was a good variety of delightful foods. That […] picture shown is good, but being there, the picture does not show how beautiful that view is! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great if you want to just stay in the hotel."
The hotel is pretty isolated so you can't walk to anything. It is multi level so there are LOTS of steps and no elevator. No refrigerator in the room so you couldn't keep cold water.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great views, convenient to Sorrento bus service"
This was an overnight excursion from Rome to tour Pompeii so I really wanted to stay at a place with a view from above Sorrento. The hotel had views from our room, pool, and common areas. All staff was attentive and gracious and the breakfast was varied and generous. The grounds and room nice and just as advertised. The only drawback was not having […] wifi in the room, but not necessarily important for everyone. We stayed in for dinner and the food was only mediocre since they don't have full restaurant service, but the breakfast was much, must better. Would recommend this hotel for the value and location to the bus service right outside. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Quiet hideaway with breathtaking views."
We had a wonderful time. Everything was spotless and the staff was attentive and accommodating. Breakfast (included) was wonderful. The view from the room was amazing. We had a fantastic experience.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Unbelievable view. Unbelievable service."
Absolutely loved this place. The staff was so friendly and helped us with more than we even asked for. Fantastic view and relatively close to downtown Sorrento. Romantic.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel sits on winding road above Sorrento and the ocean. It has perhaps the most spectacular view I have experienced in many years of travel. The resident family is very friendly and kind, and tries to make the guests feel very comfortable. The facility itself is clean and acceptable, and includes a nice swimming pool and associated deck with the great […] view. However, the physical facility does not deserve a rave review. In addition, the only viable transportation to Sorrento is by a regularly scheduled, but somewhat intermittent, public bus. You can definitely deal with this, but you have to plan.

"Excellent, except the location"
I know these reviews are important. This was our second visit to Sorrento; well worth a visit! I'm not sure how it happened, but I must of misread the distance to downtown. You can NOT walk there. The hotel is up a very, very steep hill that is two lanes (barely) with no shoulder. Upon arrival we were told to either take a bus or taxi. We took a taxi […] -- 48 euro! The hotel told us how to use the bus system, which is 3.50 euro each way per person. They also have a car service of 5 euro. I would not stay here again because of all the difficulties getting to and from town. I must say the view is outstanding -- once you've seen it, who cares? The room is great. The staff tries hard to help. If you are driving there are a few spots to park. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This is such an awesome hotel--GREAT find in Sorrento. The views are spectacular and the service is wonderful. Yes, a little ways from city center--perfect for me--the bus stop is meters away and the restaurants recommended are simply amazing!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel was not to far from the center of Sorrento.. it's highly raccomended to rent a car to move around... overall nice stay.. nice pool, good breakfast.. the hotel does not serve dinner however they provide taxi/shuttle service to 3 locals restaurants.. we went il Borgo. . Excellent. ..Genuine Expedia guest review
"Would recommend a car"
Nice little hotel. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Bus stops right in front of the hotel WHEN IT IS NOT FULL. We were passed by twice by full buses. I would recommend a car if you are staying here in the busy season.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great to be back"
This hotel is very good, i went there last year and this year again. The attention is wonderful.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Wonderful place outside of the hustle and bustle"
Wonderful place to stay! While away from the center of down, the bus system is very easy to navigate and the staff is very helpful. It's great to buy a bus tickets at the front desk on your way out the door for the day. The hotel had a beautiful view of the Mediterranean and mt Vesuvius. Every morning, you wake up to roosters crowing and geese at […] the local farm rather than car alarms and honking. The rooms were spacious and well maintained and also offered an English Channel on tv for movies and sitcoms. We had a great stay! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"5 days at Villa Fiorita"
The villa isi quite nice, but it is not easy to get to and from - the website makes it seem close to the town of Sorrento when in fact it is a 15 min or more bus ride up the switchback roads - so not at all convenient for getting around. Also the hotel is not equipped with an elevator, which we didn't realize. it's a long ramp or many steps from the […] street down to the entrance, then once inside we had 46 steps up to our floor. For we over 65 it was not an easy place to move around - so just a warniing about that. I loved the view once there and the staff was pretty helpful. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Above Sorrento....a beautiful view"
We had a wonderful time at Hotel Fiorita. The staff was very helpful with bus schedules and tickets available at their desk. They were helpful providing courtesy car rides to local, recommended restaurants.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Beautiful setting, friendly staff."
We only stayed one night, so I can't say too much, but our experience was very positive. The hotel was fairly small and intimate, and seemed to be run by a husband and wife team, whom were very friendly. The hotel is situated very high on the mountain above Sorrento, so the view is spectacular. It is quite remote though, and I think it would be hard […] to do a lot of sightseeing from there. Shuttle service to two nearby restaurants was available, and we chose one, and had a very nice dinner, with again, a gorgeous view. The included breakfast in the morning was very nice also.

"Great BnB overlooking the valley and the bay"
Villa Fiorita was great. I read all the reviews and had no surprises. The staff and particularly Giovani the manager were more than helpful and hospitable. They always had cheaper and better ways to do everything. The food was good too. Me and my wife would def go backGenuine Expedia guest review
"Excellence service from front desk/beautiful view"
I took a chance on staying out of the city to get a BEAUTIFUL view of Sorrento from up on the hills. I had a balcony overlooking the hotel pool and the hillside. Could not have been better. Saw fireworks one night! I didn't mind the bus trip out to the hotel. The room was a soft orange sherbet color that fit in with the surroundings. I happened to become […] ill (from a restaurant in town!) and the front desk was extremely helpful in getting me medical attention and working with me on changing an excursion reservation I had made with them. I was traveling alone at this point, but felt well taken care of! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Will do Villa Fiorita again next time in Sorrento"
I feel I'd do this hotel some injustice if I don't write something positive regarding my stay in Hotel Fiorita. Nice friendly staff. Always smiling and very helpful. The place is very accessible by bus (any bus towards Amalfi, Positano). Just tell the driver Villa Fiorita. Breakfast was superb. The view from my room fantastic. And Villa Fiorita offers […] taxi service to 3 restaurants around the area. If you are bogged down by luggage, Villa Fiorita offers great taxi service starting from 3 Euro. I highly recommend this place for the hospitality, view and it is just so value for money. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Quiet get-away in the hills above Sorrento"
This small 25-room hotel high In the hills overlooking Sorrento and the bay was much nicer than we expected. The family that owns and runs the hotel is very friendly, speaks English and is extremely helpful with any request. Our twin bed room with a balcony on the bay side was large and spotless. The bathroom was small by American standards but average […] for European rooms. We had a problem with our toilet making noise when flushing, and it was fixed immediately. The hotel-provided breakfast was amazing: boiled eggs, croissants, rolls, yogurt, juices, meat and cheese, fresh fruit, and a coffee, tea and cappuccino machine. A small bar in the hotel lobby provided drinks and freshly-made cappuccinos in the evening for a very reasonable fee. There is a Sorrento bus to take you down to the train station in the center of town and back up to the hotel several times a day for 4 euros one way. There is also a beautiful walking trail from the hotel to Sorrento that takes about 45 minutes downhill. We recommend taking the bus back up! The hotel arranged a day-long boat excursion for us to Amalfi, Positano and points in-between, which includes a taxi ride to and from the boat (available on Wed and Fri only). There is a small town, San Agata, worth visiting about ten minutes walk with good restaurants, a lovely old church and an excellent gelateria. We had a very enjoyable stay and would book the hotel again without question. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
older 60s hotel. our room was very clean, but small with an uncomfortable bed. tiny but spotless bathroom. This hotel is high above Sorrento on the side of a steep mountain. terrific views from our deck.. the manager/owner recommended some excellent resteraunts .good veriety at breakfast. My husband loved the whole experience!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great place enjoy."
The hotel is very nice, excellent breakfast, the view from the mountain is superb, staff is also very nice, there is a bus that comes and goes to Sorrento's downtown. There were some noisy people and the doors of the rooms are also very noisy (old knobs with old keys) but everything else is excellent.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good hotel if you have a Car"
Good price and ideal with a car for daily trips to amalfi coastGenuine Expedia guest review
"very quiet area"
with out a car it took a little bit get used to using the bus, taxis were about 20 euro in day and about 35 euros in evening. they did have three restruants in area with free pick up and return we used one of them and it was excellent. YES i would stay again even without a car.it had a very good view of the bay was very quiet.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great views and amazing staff!"
I didn't realize how far the hotel was from sorrento and was apprehensive until the views sunk in!!! Amazing sunsets!!! And, the buses are very easy and convenient to use!!! The staff are very very accommodating and helpful. They provide free car service to 3 different restaurants which are pretty decent. I would highly recommend this hotel!!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"High above Sorrento"
The Hotel has the feel of a family owned and operated hotel with a very friendly and helpful staff and lots of places to sit and enjoy Amalfi Peninsula views and weather. The location is high overlooking Sorrento, which is too crowded, and offers views of the Bay of Naples and Mt. Vesuvius from the terrace outside our room. The same view is seen from […] the pool terrace. Car parking is valet. There is a limited menu but the hotel has arrangements with nearby high quality restaurants for pick up/drop off of customers. The continental free breakfast was OK: Croissants, cereal, yogurt, juices, toast, fruit and coffe/tea. Room was small for three adults, but clean and beds were comfortable. The hotel was quiet despite a number of college students staying there as part of a travel abroad program. Small charge for Wi-fi accessibility. It is an affordable option for touring the Amalfi coast with Amalfi about a 45 minute drive along a breathtaking road with views that are unforgetable. Vesuvius, Pompei and Heraclaneum about a 45 minute drive in the other direction toward Naples. If driving anywhere leave lots of time as the Sorrento area is very congested and the roads all over the peninsula are filled with hair pin turns. If you like to drive they are great-- if you don't take a bus which is a convenient and inexpensive option. I would return. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"5 days in sorrento. What a great time!"
Villa Fiorita is a charming small hotel 15 minutes outside of Sorrento. It was 5 minutes from a charming town called saint Agata. The staff were very nice and helpful. They would help you set up dinner in neighboring towns or had some food from their bar. The rooms were small but the outside terrace view was amazing. The beds were firm and it had what […] you need for a good visit and good for the price. If you want to get away from downtown and enjoy some quiet then this is a great place Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Location If You Have a Car"
The hotel was very nice and the view was incredible. I had a huge quadruple room for the price of a single. But do not be misled by the "as the crow flies" distance from the city center. This hotel is a 20 minutes bus ride from Sorrento. You have to add an extra 5 Euros a day for bus fare to the price. A cab will cost you at least 40 Euros. This hotel […] is best for those who have their own cars. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Stay here for the oceanside views"
The hotel is not real easy to get to. There is a bus from the train station, but you have to make sure you take the right bus. The bus ride is about 20 minutes, but if you tell the driver the hotel name, the stop is right in front of the hotel. The hotel itself is clean, but a bit dated. The shower was postage stamp size. If you have a postcard sized […] body, it may be hard to wash your feet! The breakfast was adequate. Limited selection, but sufficient. Buses from the hotel to Sorrento and the Amalfi coast are frequent and easy to use, once you get the hang of it. The views from our balcony were spectacular. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Hotel people were terrific...greeat breakfast....spectacular scenery from our balcony.

The manager was exceptional and lovely, he was very responsive to our needs and definitely made our stay.

"Lovely hotel with excellent views"
We had a fabulous stay here.....beautiful views of Bay of Naples and Mt. Vesuvius from our balcony.....staff very friendly and helpful......the food was exceptional and cheaper than eating out......drink very reasonable.....would thoroughly recommend staying here if u prefer to be slightly out of Sorrento. The views make it so worthwhile! Local buses […] (called Sita buses) stop right outside the hotel and are reasonably frequent. They cost about €2.20 one way. I wouldnt entertain taxis as they are very expensive and the drivers we approached were very non-commital when we enquired about prices....the response we got was "er maybe €45 or €50 depends on the meter....so I would steer clear....the public transport is more than adequate and cheap! Overall a fantastic holiday. Would definitely stay at The Hotel Villa Fiorita again! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Very enjoyable. The hotel management and staff were very pleasant, helpful and efficient and gave us some useful advice, particularly about public transport. Bus tickets can be bought at reception and the stops are right outside the hotel. A private car can also be booked which is much cheaper than local taxis. The hotel has a nice, dated Italian feel. […] It is very clean, as are the rooms. Try to book a sea view as the views are absolutely stunning. We were in a 'garden' room which is around the other side, but our floor also had access to a sun terrace with the views. The breakfast is good. Snacks are also available which are good. I noticed on a previous review that there was nowhere to have drinks, but there is actually a little outdoor café area next to the pool and also a room next to a small bar inside too so maybe these have been added since that comment. The pool area is lovely. Great for sun bathing and the views. The location is a slight surprise. A ten to fifteen minute bus ride uphill from the centre, but otherwise you wouldn't get the views. Be warned about bus reliability on Sunday. We waited for 2 hours. The hotel do give excellent information on the reliable and unreliable buses which is worth taking notice of. The rest of the week they were fine. If you tell the driver where you want to get off, he gives you a shout. Bus rides were good fun. Especially if you like hairpin bends driven Italian style. The coastline is unbelievable. Lots of beautiful places to see Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Very clean and staff lovely &friendly"
Hotel has amazing views well worth being out of Sorrento. Staff friendly & very helpful. Pool & room very clean. Hotel will provide a taxi to Sorrento for 5euro if you don't fancy the walk...down OK but back up is bard work! Will return - venue is a grown up holiday not one for the kids.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Beautiful setting, extremely helpful staff"
Lovely family run hotel with a wonderful view from the rooms. Excellent buffer breakfast. Easy to access to all sites of interest via local transport, bus stops right outside the hotel. Car service to excellent local restaurants. Family happy to help with all enquiries. Would definitely recommend.Genuine Expedia guest review
The hotel is a little way out of Sorrento (20 mins bus ride), but this is how you are able to have the fantastic views from high up the mountain. If you are looking for a quiet retreat this is the hotel for you. It's a small hotel that only serves breakfast and no evening meal, but you can purchase a small meal upon request. The hotel has restaurants […] that they liase with and a car will come and pick you up and bring you back. At the hotel there is a small seated area where you can enjoy a quiet drink, but no bar as such. We used the hotel as a place to rest our weary legs as there is so much to do and see within the surrounding area. The staff are very friendly and are extremely helpful with timetables, bus tickets etc. They speak very good English, so there is no communication issue. The rooms are basic but very clean.

"Nice hotel, secluded and traditional"
Really enjoyed my trip to Sorrento, Villa Fiorita was a nice and relaxing hotel to go back to. It has a really good pool that overlooks some amazing views of the port and neighbouring properties. The staff are friendly and accommodating, speak very good English and will help you with anything. The rooms are basic, but who actually spends time in their […] hotel room when abroad anyway?! The main good points were, they had air con, they are cleaned daily, they have the basics you will need to enjoy your stay! Oh and breakfast was included. Worth it just because of the cappuccinos! One main downside of the room is the lack of plug sockets to plug things into.. But such a small detail that could easily be fixed. The hotel is quite far away from the town centre, but the hotel offers a healer taxi service and there is a quite regular bus that runs to the town right outside the hotel. I would highly recommend this hotel purely because of the staff and the views you get here. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Peaceful location high in the hills"
Everyone says its the view ,well it is the view ,its astonishing The hotel staff were friendly without being over familiar , I read someone said they were a little aloof ...that is a bit harsh but I can see where they were coming from . The room was very clean , the furniture was quite old fashioned without having any particular style but the room did […] manage to have stacks of character . The air-con worked well even if it emitted a faint glow of light in the dark . The worst feature of the room was probaly the shower which didnt really blast you with water . It was more like showering under a tap that you want to turn up more . It did though have a huge plus ....a window in the shower so you could watch the view whilst washing :-) . The breakfast was Continental in style and we found it more than adequate for our needs . We ate at the hotel only once but we did enjoy it , they dont pretend to serve anything other than snacks but we enjoyed what we had . It was cheap too . There isnt really a bar area as such , you ask whoever is on reception and they pass you a drink out of the fridge in the conservatory ....its all very trusting for its not even locked or behind the bar . They add it to your room bill and you settle at the end of the holiday . We had a wonderful time here and would not hesitate in returning or recommending it (with caveats) to others . See what could be improved . Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Up in the hills"
A quiet hotel in the hills overlooking Sorrento. Great staff very friendly and helpful. The bus goes past the door to Sorrento.

"Had a great stay!"
You'll need to take a bus down to Sorrento and back each day 2.20 euros each way. We walked down a couple of times but it's a long way, and very steep. We'd still stay here again though. The staff were very friendly and helpful The room was clean and had a great view! Breakfast is continental with fruit, cereal, croissants and cold meats If you arrive […] at the main train/bus station ensure your bus goes to Via Nastro Verde (ask the driver, also ask them to tell you where to get off). As we weren't sure we took a taxi when we arrived, this was 45 euros! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Outstanding views, lovely people, lovely hotel."
Hotel Villa Fiorita is a family-run hotel on the Via Nastra Verde road from Sorrento, you to get into Sorrento you can either catch a bus from outside the hotel into Sorrento or take the sloping footpath nearby, which is little challenging but scenic. You have access to various tourist sites once in town. A sea view room gives you a stunning panorama […] of the whole of Sorrento, Bay of Naples and Mount Vesuvius, and being able to sit on the terrace each day and look at that each day is worth the money on its own. The rooms are small, but spotlessly clean and comfortable, and although some may think them basic, for us, the quaint Italian decor made our room endearing, and they have all the basic facilities you need, such as a small bathroom (shower, no bath), air conditioning, a patio door opening onto a personal terrace, a TV etc. There is a small but pleasant pool with a cafe/bar, which is shared with the hotel next door, a daytime cafe, and a lovely breakfast room with a sea view and varied continental breakfast selection. Giovanni and his family are all lovely and cannot do enough to help you. They provide bus timetables, all the advice and help you need, can arrange taxis to and from Sorrento for you between 4pm and 10:30pm, and although the hotel does not have an evening restaurant, they have an agreement with two local places who will send drivers to pick you up and return you to the hotel after your meal. We loved this hotel and would stay there again without any doubt. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Found this gem and didn't want to leave. Great ambience, fantastic pool and poolside bar. Friendly staff with a cheery welcome always happy to help.
