About Us

The Grand Hotel Excelsior Vittoria is a family-friendly luxury destination resort located in the town centre of Sorrento, just 60km south of Napoli, in the heart of Sorrento Peninsula on the cliffs overlooking the Bay of Naples. The building is secluded from the main square by private gardens with citrus groves. Guests pass through the main gate and through the gardens to find the Hotel right on the seafront of Sorrento. The hotel dates back to the early 1800s and is built on the very same spot where the Roman Emperor August had his villa. The hotel is owned and managed by the Fiorentino family for six generations.
The hotel has 91 rooms with a view, including 21 suites among which the famous Pompeii, Enrico Caruso, Pavarotti and Royal suites.The Excelsior Vittoria is a historic Grand Hotel comprising three different blocks built between 1834 and 1880. Precisely because of its unique layout, the Hotel is able to offer a generous selection of rooms with a variety of features. Almost all rooms have a terrace or a balcony overlooking the Bay of Naples or the beautiful hotel grounds. All rooms have private bathroom, air conditioning, satellite TV, minibar, safe and direct-dial telephone. The historic suites are tastefully furnished with original period furniture and have a terrace looking out over the Bay, affording splendid views and spectacular sunsets. The Enrico Caruso suite, very much in demand, retains the same décor and furnishings as when the famous Italian tenor stayed there for more several months, in 1921. The Pompeii Suite has recently been renovated and decorated with frescoes inspired by the decoration of the most handsome villas in nearby Pompeii.
The Grand Hotel Excelsior Vittoria is notable not least for its private gardens, which lead from the main square of Sorrento to the Hotel entrance. Five acres of luxuriant grounds full of beautiful Mediterranean plants and flowers, the gardens are an important part of Sorrento, containing a number of very old specimens and magnificent blooms. Guests can enjoy a stroll and admire the plants, or simply relax in the shade of the trees and take in the unparalleled beauty of the Bay of Naples. And with no shortage of different paths to follow, this is also the ideal place to take a jog or do a few keep-fit exercises in the open air.
The swimming pool is situated in the garden and the guests can relax and bathe in the perfect setting, and enjoy good food sitting in the orange grove nearby. Located in the park, surrounded by olive trees, orange and lemon trees, by huge Mediterranean pine trees, palms and bougainvillea....green, white and pink colours matching with the natural-coloured pool. 0.85 to 1.70 metres deep, 11.60 metres wide, 25 metres long, the pool has an entrance area with confortable steps entering in the water: once inside, you find yourself in the 0.85 metres deep area where there is the water massage that you enjoy while sitting on a marble bench. The central and final area is for swimming: the central one has got a sophisticated system for swimming upstream. The material used for the pool is a natural coloured marble put in small pieces 3 cm X 3cm in order to create a mosaic. The edge and the external part of the floor is in Trani';s marble installed following the Antique Romans'; style "opus romano". The part next to the edge is made of wood teak, a prestigious material, the same used for boat decks.
The children';s pool, with the same material, has been created some metres far from the main pool in order not to disturb the adults. Between the adults'; pool and the children';s pool there is something unique....the Roman Emperor Augustus not only had his villa where the Excelsior Vittoria is today but also a...swimming pool! In fact, during the works, some ruins have been found: first of all a lead tube with the writing "Marco Aurelio Antonino", who maybe was the plumber! Then some walls with waste outlets which make the experts think it was a pool. These ruins are visible and protected by a railing.
The solarium made of teak was completed in 2006 and reaches the surface of 800 sm. The new area is used in Summer time for special events such as jazz concerts.
The Boutique SPA La Serra is a unique location within the Grand Hotel Excelsior Vittoria’s two acre orange grove. Created in a converted 19th Century greenhouse, adjoining the hotel’s swimming-pool, La Serra is surrounded by olive and orange trees and enjoys natural sunlight for most of the day. The Boutique SPA La Serra offers exclusive rituals and treatments to purify the body and soothe the senses with the most natural products and essential oils of Cinq Mondes and Signature brands. La Serra has two separate treatment suites, a single one and a double one for couples. Each suite fully equipped for the ultimate pampering has its own private Jacuzzi bath-tub, a rain shower and according to the season or weather conditions, a private garden for outdoor relaxation, private changing room; a single room for shiatsu massage and treatments with private changing room andan additional room for manicure and pedicure. Very popular is the Honeymoon treatment in the tween suite.
Place of interest nearby include Capri, Positano, Amalfi and Ischia where is possible to organize escursion with the private yacht of the hotel along the Amalfi Coast. Pompeii, Ravello, Peastum and Naples where is possible to organize escursion with the private transfer.

Beautiful, iconic

By: ew


Reviewed on: 13 Nov 2015

Iconic hotel in a great location. The hotel grounds offer many outdoor areas for relaxation, with hammocks in a park, a citrus garden, and a great outdoor pool. The patio out back has great views of the water from up on high, and the dinner is Michelin-rated and excellent. Definitely the place I'd stay the next time I'm in Sorrento.

Amazing hotel

By: KA12


Reviewed on: 16 Sep 2016

This hotel was a fantastic oasis in the middle of Sorrento. It is a perfect 5 star experience with two great restaurants, an extraordinary breakfast, great spa and very nice guest rooms. The historic setting on the site of an imperial villa is so unique. Lastly, the terrace on the cliff was a great location for evening drinks or a late night dessert.

Excelsior Vittoria in Sorrento is by far the best hotel one can stay at on the northern Amalfi coast. Location a 10. Service a 10. Hospitality a 10. Property a 12(out of 10). Ferries to Capri, Positano and Naples an elevation trip away. Would insist on any of my friends going to this region to stay here. Perfection.

Room was not ready when we arrived, told we were upgraded to "seaside view" but you could only see a sliver of the ocean if you peered your head over a slate roof and roadway. Pool nice but too crowded, couldn't find anywhere to sit.

Grand Hotel with a spectacular view!

By: Amy L


Reviewed on: 05 Oct 2018

The Grand Hotel Excelsior Vittoria is a beautiful property located right on the coast adjacent to the Marina Piccola. The view from our terrace was especially stunning at sunrise and sunset! The staff was friendly, and the breakfast served to live piano music was a treat we looked forward to daily. The hotel sits back off the street, so is quiet and removed from the noise of the Piazza Tasso. However, this also makes it very convenient if you want to walk to shopping or to get a gelato or an espresso or to find a nearby restaurant. The hotel has an incredible sweeping stone terrace that overlooks the water and was our favorite place to gather for a cocktail before dinner or before heading to our room at night. I would highly recommend the Grand Hotel Excelsior Vittoria to anyone who is looking for an upscale luxury hotel with all the amenities and an excellent location!

Incredible Views, Service and Restaurants at Excelsior Vittoria!

By: World Traveler


Reviewed on: 18 Oct 2018

We stayed for 5 days at Grand Hotel Excelsior Vittoria in October. It was an incredible experience. The views from the hotel are spectacular for sure. But I thought the best part of the hotel was the "Italian Family" warm, friendly and fun service from hotel staff in the reception area, pool area, spa and all of the dining facilities. Every staff person greeted you and remembered your name, where you are from and what you like for breakfast! When we checked in, the staff at the front desk said to us, "Oh wonderful! We have been waiting for you! Welcome to Italy!". Our stay was memorable with wonderful food, the rooms are spectacular and the pool area is really nice--a great place to escape, kick back and relax. The hotel is located close to great shopping and nearby restaurants, the ferry boats to Capri and the local sites in Sorrento. You won't go wrong staying at Excelsior Vittoria!
