“In an incredible location, this hotel combines a setting in the heart of Sorrento with panoramic views.”
The Hotel Continental has an impressive location. It’s set just behind the cliff edge in Sorrento, overlooking the Bay of Naples and, in the distance, the brooding slopes of Mount Vesuvius. It’s also on tree-lined Piazza della Vittoria, the square at the heart of Sorrento’s spiderweb of streets. Corsa Italia, the main shopping street, and Piazza Tasso, the central square, are within a 5-minute walk.
The hotel really makes the most of the views. In the lobby – where marble floors, imposing pillars and chandeliers create a classically Italian feel – floor-to-ceiling windows open up views of Monte Vesuvio. And the à la carte restaurant has a terrace with uninterrupted views of the bay. You also have the option of a bedroom with sea views. When it comes to décor, rooms work a classic chic look, with intricately tiled floors and pared-back white walls.
There’s a large pool to the side of the hotel, cocooned by lemon and orange trees. The hotel also has a lift to take you down to a small sand and shingle public beach with a jetty.
The hotel is located a few minutes walk away from the main streets of Sorrento in a very quiet area. We booked directly with the hotel and was upgraded for free from our cheaper internal view room. Our room was spacious and very clean. Part of our deal included a meal in the restaurant which was fabulous and there was a great selection at breakfast each morning. All the staff in the hotel are very friendly and helpful and i would highly recommend this hotel!More

Not bad, but you can may do better with a little more research.
We found this hotel to have a good location as it was tucked away but close to a lot of shopping and restaurants. and it was a pretty reasonable price, but the amenities were a little lacking. My wife's main complaint was the provided hair dryer. Apparently it didn't work very well and this made a lot of extra work for her. That seems like a small thing but it required her to get up much earlier to start using it and this detracted a bit from things because it was largely an exercise in futility. They prohibit the use of your own personal hair dryers so we were out of luck. Be warned that they have an evening turn-down service in addition to the morning maid service. This is meant to be a courtesy but I found that we didn't particularly care for people coming into our room twice per day. Traveling in a foreign country, you always want to make sure you are keeping your stuff secure and we couldn't do that even after the morning cleaning because we knew someone was coming later. We did find the staff to be friendly and accomodating. The breakfast was very good and the staff working there were extremely nice. Ending on a bright note the bed was really comfortable and I slept well.More

For the money we payed â¬110 a night it was ok the front and desk was grand but vintage but the rooms were just old not the best beds were hard and not great to sleep on but they give you everything you can imagine in the bathroom lol so that's good I guess and the staff were really nice and treated you like a 5* guest so it will get a 3/5 from me.More
Lovely hotel with great breakfast
We stayed in this hotel for 1 night at the end of March while visiting the Amalfi Coast. The hotel was in a great position for our needs. 5 min walk to the port and to the main square. Great for exploring Sorrento on foot.
The hotel had a great breakfast and the staff were all polite, friendly and helpful.
We also used the car parking which cost 25euros a day.More
