The view from the rooms is amazing.Posted May 28, 2016
The hotel is not 5 star so don't expect 5 star accommodation. It's 5 min walk from Sorrento and has all you need for your stay. Staff very helpful and amazing views of the harbour, sea, Sorrento and Vesuvius. Can't knock the hotel apart from making a suggestion. The beds are hard so maybe the offer of a bed topper if wanted could help those who like a softer bed.

Seventh heavenPosted May 19, 2016
Pros: The view and location, away from all the madness of tourists.
Cons: Nothing really, for a 3 star, it was wonderful and then some.
Location: It was a 20 min walk from the main tourist area/train station. The views were amazing all the way up an down so well worth it.
The view from our balcony was so exceptionally gorgeous that it would have made anything that was not ok, OK. The staff, especially Fabione and the main server at breakfast (shamefully I did not get her name), were outstanding.

Living off its viewPosted Sep 7, 2015 on Hotels
The view is absolutely stunning and we enjoyed eating our lunch and having a drink on our balcony. I'm afraid it goes downhill from there. The staff were a mix of very friendly through to courteous but abrupt. The interior of the hotel is very tired and could do with a good coat of paint. This would have made a big difference to the overall impression you get of the place. The breakfast was poor and not very appetising. For example, some yogurt would have been appreciated. The hotel is situated about 10 minutes walk from all the main action which is fine. Be advised that the footpath besides a busy road is extremely narrow in places (not the hotel's fault I know). The straw that broke the camel's back for us was that the sons of one of the staff were allowed to run amok in the pool area spoiling any opportunity for a relax by the pool (avoid school holidays and this probably won't be an issue). The pool should be for guests. As much as we enjoyed the view we won't be returning to this hotel in the future.

Perfect location for Sorrento stayPosted Aug 15, 2015
Having visited Sorrento previously we knew where we wanted our hotel to be for the best views over Bay of Naples, Vesuvius and Sorrento. The Settimo Cielo was very reasonably priced, the family room we had was spacious, clean and had a large balcony with magnificent views. The staff were extremely helpful, friendly and very knowledgeable. The breakfast consisted of fresh bread, fruit, croissants, cheese and meats and was plentiful. The swimming pool was perfect with excellent views and plenty of sunloungers. It was a 15 minute stroll in to Sorrento itself and as a the perfect hotel for our needs.

Excellent view over vesuviusPosted Aug 9, 2015
Close to town centre. Beautiful view from balcony overlooking bay of naples and vesuvius. Room spacious and clean. Only criticism would be poor choice of food at breakfast. The ham and cheese were awful and there was nothing else but toast and croissants. But apart from that it was fine. Oh, and rooftop pool was great. Needed it in the 35 degree heat

Beach hotel with a GREAT location!Posted Jul 26, 2015
Pros: The hotel is family owned. The staff is friendly and available to help you with whatever you may need. Awesome location!!! Can't beat the views!
Cons: One of the big negatives to me was that the pool closed at 6:30 pm. Also could use refrigerators in the room.
Location: Beautifully located in Sorrento. Able to walk to the city center with plenty of shops, the beach, restaurants, cafes. Near lots of other cities too!
We stayed here for 5 nights in July. We used this as our central location to not only spend time in Sorrento but also to head out to Pompeii, Vesuvius, Amalfi Coast, Capri and Naples. A simple breakfast is included! I can't say enough about the staff of the hotel as they made our stay! They were very friendly and spoke English very well! The rooms were clean with the basic necessities but you definitely stay in this hotel for the stunning view from the balcony overlooking the Sea of Naples, Vesuvius, Sorrento and Marina Grande. We were able to navigate the area by walking, trains, ferries and tour buses without an issue. No need to rent a car.

Great location with excellent view.Posted Jul 26, 2015
Pros: View, location, staff.
Cons: Room updates and also pool closed at 6:30pm. Would have liked to have had access to pool a little later.
Location: Location is great. Walk to town where restaurants and shops are located. Walk down to beach via shortcut close by. So many things to do in Sorrento
Walk down to city center from hotel. Hotel is tired and need of some updates but is typical of the hotels in this area. The staff is wonderful. Family owned and run. Staff went out of there way to make our stay comfortable.

What a fantastic stay!Posted May 16, 2015
The first thing you notice as you enter the room is the fantastic view over the sea and down to Marina Grande below the hotel. The hotel staff were the friendliest I have ever come across and couldn't have been more helpful. One thing I was concerned about was whether it would be too far from the centre but it was only a short walk to the first few shops etc including g a lovely cafe on the right hand side where we had lovely bruschetta and a cool drink. I can thoroughly recommend this hotel and it is much cheaper than those on either side which may be more fancy but Settimo Cielo has lovely clean rooMs and everything we needed.

Great location, great staffPosted Apr 16, 2015 on Hotels
Wonderful hotel just outside the center of Sorrento. We stayed during an unexpectedly chilly April week but still found lots to do. The staff are incredibly welcoming and give great tips on where to eat and how to navigate the town. The room is standard Italian hotel - all tile, small beds but that's fine because the view from your balcony will be breathtaking. Grab a bottle of wine down in town and just watch the ships pull in and out. After that, you won't care about the room.

Lovely view and peoplePosted Apr 15, 2015
Pros: The view, staff and general experience.
Cons: The rooms could look less tired but I suspect this would affect the price...
Location: Location is great- short (10 min) walk into town with loads of shops, restaurants etc.
Really good value. You get so much more than you pay for. This hotel is not luxurious, however for the money you spend you get a wonderful deal. Everything important is there. The room was spotless, the view superb and the staff were incredibly helpful. I don't understand reviewers who focus on the small issues. They sound incredibly spoilt. If you want a 5 star hotel you have to pay the 5 star prices. This hotel was lovely.
