Having just returned home from Sorrento I have to say that the Hotel Belair was wonderful. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The food was excellent! The views from the hotel are probably the best in Europe. I strongly recommend this hotel to anyone.
Not great value for money

Wonderful location and very friendly staff. The food was a real let down, we were served ready prepapred meals many evening, with frozen veg such as Brussel sprouts. If items were not eate they would appear as a starter the following evening. This made the hotel feel cheap. We also had problems with th every thin walls in the hotel. The location can be problem if the weather is poor as the hotel is in shade for much of the day as it is North facing.

Historical Traveller Reviews of Belair Hotel

Unbeatable view

from Spookyzoo
A great hotel with friendly staff and possibly the best view over the bay of Naples that money can buy!. The only downside is the very average dinner if going half board.. Apparantly it is possible to go bed and breakfast, but you have to insist.
Having said that, I would definately return

Superb hotel !

from alice
My new husband and I just returned from our honeymoon on the Amalfi Coast and we were really impressed with the Hotel Belair. Exceedingly professional, helpful and courteous staff. Lovely room with a breathtaking view of the coast. Hotel is built on the side of the mountain so all the rooms have a magnificent view of the bay. They were even kind enough to provide us with some congratulatory champagne (completely unexpected). We would go back in a hearbeat ! FYI - for some reason, if you do search on google the hotel's website doesn't come up high up on the results page. For everyone interested, website is

A Wonderful Little Gem

from EJJS
We have just come back from a week at the Belair in Sorrento. We cant speak highly enough of this gem of a hotel. The staff are very welcoming and so helpful, the whole hotel is spotlessly clean and the views are amazing. The hotel is on the cliff directly above the sea and all of the rooms have the same wonderful sea view of Sorrento, the Bay of Naples and Vesuvius. Its on a fairly main road but you wouldnt know it because the hotel faces away from it. Its a pleaseant 10-15 minute stroll to Sorrento down the hill and the train station for Vesuvius, Herculaneum, Pompeii and Naples is 15-20 minutes walk. The food was very good, anti pasta buffet style then a choice of starter, main and desert. We booked half board because we assumed Sorrento would be expensive to eat out but it certainly wasnt. Average price for a main course was 8 - 14 euros, lunch say pizza, from about 6 euros. You can have breakfast, lunch and dinner on the terraces which was bliss. We kept pinching ourselves with the views! Would definately return to this hotel and can highly recommend it. We would say this is certainly a hotel for couples.

Sorrento: Hotel Belair: "Superb service, food, and location".
Date: June 27, 2006
Reviewer: A TripAdvisor Member, Orlando, FL USA
My wife and I, along with another couple, have just returned from almost 3 weeks in Italy. The best hotel of our trip, and we were at some excellent ones in other cities, was the Hotel BelAir in Sorrento. The service in all departments was outstanding, especially Franco and Giancuca at the Front Desk and Michael in the Dining Room. Our rooms were immaculate and well-appointed with beautiful views--all of the rooms have great views of the water. All of the staff were completely customer service oriented. It was always..."whatever you would like" or..."whatever you want". It was hard to believe that the kitchen could turn out such a varied and exquisite menu, but they did. The hotel stands dramatically but securely on the side of a cliff and is within walking distance of Sorrento, just down the hill. Whether you need assistance with outings, tours, booking a car or just information on what to do and where to go, their staff is always ready to help, and with a great attitude. Our hotel stay at the Hotel BelAir produces the fondest memories for our entire 3 weeks in Italy.

Fantastic Views

from Rmorrison
We stayed here for a week in June , the staff where very professional and welcoming , the hotel rooms where clean and spacious , the views from our balcony where simply stunning .

The hotel is a good 15 to 20 minutes to the centre of Sorrento down hill going .The breakfast is a standard continental breafast .

I would definately recommend the hotel and would be tempted to return

Perfection. Ideal Honeymoon. Want to live here forever !

from A TripAdvisor Member
This is a majestic hotel with decent prices. It has an unrivalled location which gives it the best views in Sorrento - accross the bay of naples to vesuvius et al. We will definitely come back. The staff could give lessons in how to deliver quality custiomer service !

Incredible Location, Very Friendly Hotel

from A TripAdvisor Member
My family stayed here and found Sorrento and this hotel to be a great counterpoint to the first half of our vacation, spent in Rome. Our rooms were large and comfortable and the terraces overlooking the Bay of Naples, Vesuvius and the town of Sorrento were awesome. The staff was very accommodating. Also, recommended is a great dinner spot on the side of town near the hotel: Taverna Puldi, just off the main road on via degli Aranci. Great innovative menu and nice sophisticated atmosphere without being stuffy. They treated us so well we ate there two nights in a row!

Beautiful Hotel

from Gill1960
We spent 4 nights at the Belair and found it to be a very nice place. We booked two standard rooms which were both very comfortable, clean and well appointed. As the hotel is built into the cliff face all the rooms have fabulous views over the Bay of Naples towards Mount Vesuvius and if you crane your head you can see Capri. Another advantage of the hotel's cliff-face location is that the road noise is virtually obliterated once you are inside.
We stayed on a B&B basis; the breakfasts were adequate but basically 'Germanic' i.e. bread, cheese, ham in the main. This reflects the fact that as English independent travellers we were very much in the minority with the hotel largely occupied by German tourists on packages. The age profile is definitely 'retired' generation so the atmosphere is quiet and in our mid-forties we were the youngest staying there with our two teenagers.This is not a criticism. The staff all spoke very good English and were at all times helpful and friendly.
We ate in the hotel restaurant one night but it was slightly disappointing perhaps because we ate table d'hote as opposed to a la carte. Again the meal offered was what the half-board package guests were eating that night and it didn't compare to the standard of food we ate in Sorrento. One restaurant in particular, The Lantern, stood out and we ate there twice, the food and service both excellent and good value for money.
The walk into Sorrento was down quite a busy main road and took about 15 minutes to reach the centre of town.
The Belair is a lovely hotel with spacious, airy public rooms. Although the water temperature was still too cold for us to enjoy the pool we could imagine it would be absolutely idyllic in the summer. The hotel is certainly not cheap but we wanted something special on this occasion and The Belair did live up to expectations.

A hotel to go back to

from WibblyWobblyMan
Fantastic little hotel. What sells it are the views; they are unbeatable. You just can't beat sitting on the balcony having breakfast, looking over the Bay of Napoli, to the right there's the whole of Sorrento with a backdrop of the mountains behind, and to the left is Mt. Vesuvio (although occasionally it's obscured by haze).

All rooms have a view. Very comfortable, some rooms better than others but I'm not saying which ;=) It's run by the Rossi family (who own 4 others). Second time we went only a couple of staff had changed which is good, you get to know them well.

Pool is small but isn't overcrowded, a lot of the residents are senior citizens who go back year after year and it gets a bit hot for them.

Food is good, has a very local theme, not very adventurous but it's well cooked and plenty of it. Menu changes every night, it recycles over a fortnight so you don't normally see the same thing twice, and there's enough choice on the menu to find something you like every night. The sartu (neapolitan rice pie) is unusual and memorable. Plenty of cheap wines (for hotels).

It's just far enough from the town to walk, any further and it would be a hassle but it's about 10 mins to the edge of town. You can get to the Marina Grande below via steps. The bus, however, stops right outside and it's only a Euro to town. Handy if you've had a hot day. The bus to Positano goes past but you're better getting it in town as you'll be standing all the way in Summer and it's a rough ride along the twisty Amalfi Drive

it's not really suitable for young families; they are happy to take them, but there's lots of stairs and a 100ft drop over a cliff from the pool balcony. There's not a lot to do at night apart from drinking Rossano's cocktails in the bar, but the town is lively and close enough to walk to.

W've been twice, I'd go back again at the drop of a hat but the missus want's to go somewhere else in Italy this year.

Perfect start to my honeymoon!

from Lcab
My husband and I started our Italian honeymoon at the Hotel Belair. We stayed 4 days and it was heaven! The view is breathtaking. Our junior suite was stunning and the breakfast every morning was wonderful. The staff was also very helpful and friendly. I cannot say enough about this hotel. I was so sad to leave! I still believe it is situated in the most beautiful place on earth. And the walk down to the main town is short and convenient. We loved the Irish pub in town (Chaplain's). I would return in a second. We felt very at home.

Top Local Tips for Sorrento

Hydrofoil Take the Hydrofoil to Capri for a day Trip. It's very easy and a lot of fun!

Bus Use the bus! It's easy.

Walk to the marina For older travelers and those with disabilities, I'd suggest taking a taxi or bus to the marina for any ferry trips, since the descent is considerable on foot.
