Grand Hotel Excelsior Vittoria

The historic Grand Hotel Excelsior Vittoria’s most popular suite is the signature suite Enrico Caruso, which retains much of the same décor and furnishings (including the piano) from when the famous Italian tenor called it home in 1921. Garden-view junior suites overlook the beautiful orange grove, while sea-view junior suites and sea-view deluxe suites have amazing views over the Mediterranean Sea and Mt. Vesuvius. And there’s so much to do! Relax in the tranquil garden, swim in the pool or take the lift down to the pier. It’s the perfect base from which to explore the area, including Capri, Positano, Ravello, Pompeii and Naples.

Hotel Tip

Experience a gourmet dinner at Michelin-starred restaurant Terrazza Bosquet and enjoy an elegant combination of regional and Mediterranean cuisine, using fresh, local produce — some from the hotel's garden.

Beautiful, iconic

By: ew

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

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.

Beyond expectations

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.

Beautiful hotel and excellent location. Very courteous and helpful staff. Best hotel I have stayed at in Italy. Received a personal greeting from the owner. Will likely return here for family reunion to celebrate 50th wedding anniversary in 2020.

Not our favorite

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!
