I stayed for just one night as part of a large group tour and our one night wasn't ideal - very rainy and blustery, so no real chance for us to explore the grounds or see the views. We also arrived on the same evening the hotel was hosting a large wedding, and it was obvious

WHen I first visited La Sonrisa back 15 years ago I hoped that this would last forever. It is a place to experience the past with the beauty of what we expect in Naples from the 60's with touches of today. Since Emma has become the leader of such a great era of the past, it is

My family enjoyed a night a Grand Hotel La Sonrisa on the way to Pompeii. Pleasant restaurant with friendly staff and first-class views of Mount Vesuvius from our room balcony. Safe and plentiful parking. Hearty breakfast. About 10-15 minutes from Pompeii by car.

Our party of 14 visited the Naples area to help celebrate my 70th birthday. The hotel is amazing. It reminded me of the palace of Versailles. The staff were very helpful and the hotel was overlooked by Vesuvius. Children had a great time in the very ornate pool. We had wonderful

Stayed here for our one night in Pompeii. In hindsight we should of picked somewhere close to train as this hotel is about 15 min away. We thought it would be charming but it was really just cheesy. Our second room was great. First room was just horrible. Looked dirty it was so

Hi Abs If you want to travel around suggest you hire a car. The hotel is in an surburban area away from all the tourist sights. We did catch the metro into Naples the hotel dropped us at the station there was a charge. Also other than the restaurant opposite the entrance run by the lovely Maria there no other restaurants . The hotel is amazing don't let this put you off.

We arrived yesterday from Pompeii. The train/bus/walk time was just over an hour and that did not depart for more two hours. We hired a cab at the train station and were here in about 20 minutes, if that. Per the staff we will get a ride from the shuttle in the morning to the port and will take a ferry to Capri.

L'hotel dispone di un proprio ristorante e i piatti sono abbastanza buoni, vi suggerisco di chiamare direttamente l'Hotel per la disponibilità delle camere. Buona permanenza.

We stayed at Grand Sonrisa in August 2014. The hotel are very friendly and helpful with arranging taxis, I think they quoted 60 euros back to airport but we had prebooked with airporttaxitransfers, email at bookingsatairportstaxitransfers com who charged 99 euros round trip. On time and helpful. The hotel do not arrange excursions. My italian is non existent and I could n't even really make them understand what I wanted. So I went online and booked through a uk site, friendsofsorrento who arranged everything for me for a trip to Pompeii and Vesuvius in a day. I paid extra for private car transfer to pick up excursion coach and back to hotel, which they also arranged. You can do it cheaper by going to excursion starting point in Sorrento, you can get a train there for 1 euro and the hotel will drive you to the station, they are very helpful for that sort of thing. But it means a very early start and breakfast doesn't always start on time so bear that in mind. The excursion company who deal with friendsofsorrento are Agencia de Viaggi Gold in Sorrento. You have time so may be able to sort it all out before you go either with the Uk site or maybe directly with the Sorrento company (I don't know if they have a site?) - which I would advise. And wear walking shoes/trainers - not sandals, especially if you do vesuvius!!

"Bit noisy in our suite so choose a quiet spot"
"Rooms located above the function rooms can be a bit noisy. But usually things quieten down round 11 p.m."
"Ask for a room away from any wedding activity, and preferably one with a bath."
"Main hotel may be better than our annex room however avoid the loft rooms with the sloping ceiling"
"Just ask. If something is available I'm sure they will help."
