Second time I stayed here. Two weeks total. Very historic location. So easy to walk out the door and catch a ferry to Amalfi,Capri,Naples. It is at the bottom of the cliffs right on the water, but easy to take the elevator up to the top. 1 euro or easy to walk up. The hotel is family owned and I...

Sorrento always seems to get high praise from people. I only spent one night there so will limit this review to the hotel I stayed in. This hotel needs updates, specifically the pillows and the antiquated hairdryers which are rubbish. The pillows are like stones and the walls are thin. The food is basic...both dinner and breakfast. Dinner was stodgy...

Just returned from a lovely week at the hotel Il faro. The hotel is in a superb position close to the harbour ,but tucked in a secluded corner so out of the main hustle and bustle. Look on google maps to see the position ,as this will make finding the stairs down from the High Street to the lower harbour...

What a fabulous location. So close to where the ferry docs and where you can catch a bus up to the main township. There is also a restaurant attached to the hotel right outside the front door. The staff were so helpful. The food was also very fresh and tasty. We would stay there again.

The location is wonderful since it is the closest hotel to the ferry that takes you to Capri and is only a 10 minute walk away from the metro. Our room was cozy and had a beautiful balcony overlooking the water, a perfect summer getaway. The best thing about Il Faro was its service and employees. They were extraordinarily considerate...

Went on a school trip to this hotel. A room for 5 of us was very good, however one of the beds placed in the room were weak with support. We got lucky to get a good room with an amazing view of the coast, we were not expecting such a nice room with a balcony. The location of the...

This hotel is average at best. The rooms are clean and that is a plus. It could use some updating when it comes to beds. When the hotel is full, the wifi is not good. It can not support that many people. Staff was friendly and helpful so I was happy about that.

We stayed here for 5 days until November 3rd. It was really great! The rooms were good if a little small, but I was out all day every day so it didn't really matter -, everything stuck me as very Italian (mind you, I've never been to Italy before. But it all felt very warm and traditional?). The food was...

Hotel il Faro is a great find for an Italian hotel. If you are looking for an American style hotel, this isn't it. If you are looking for a more authentic local experience, this is great place. I stayed here in July 2016. Like many buildings in the area, the hotel is built into the side of the cliff. The...
