“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.
Lovely hotel in a great location. Staff very attentive and accommodation is clean and of a good standard with bright and lovely decor. Spectacular views of Mount Vesuvius and the sea. Good food (especially the restaurant desserts), cocktails at happy hour a bonus and you are also within easy reach of all the local restaurants and bars. Train station (for visits into Pompeii) and the half hourly boat rides that take you across to the island of Capri all within easy walking distance. The only drawback I would say is the gym really does need AC. It was very uncomfortable to workout in a room that was already hot before even getting started and everyone in there was dripping! Mosquitoes were also very present in the gym so I got bitten whilst down there and again AC would discourage this. That said, the benefits of this hotel far outweigh any drawbacks and not only would I recommend, I would most definitely stay here again. More

One of the many hotels in Sorrento. Beautiful location with a private elevator to the beach. (There is sn entrancefee for the beach!). Hotel is very good, breakfast is super. We had 2 rooms for 3 days. In one room the airco was not working. We told it several times and everytime they told us it would be fixed. But at the end it still was nog done. For the price the hotel charges you, you may expect well-working airco!More

A spotless room with a view
We come to Italy every year and this time we thought we'd try the Hotel Continental. The hotel runs like a perfect clock, every corner is spotless and some of the staff are fabulous..... And a super breakfast! We are over the moon with our rooms ( both rooms have a sea view!). A special thank you to who Antonio and his team who looked after us so well each morning and the staff who took care of us at lunchtime. And we can't forget our cleaners who made sure our rooms were spotless ( and had to tackle the triple sleeping 3 teens - sorry about their mess!). The hotel is in a great location, an easy walk to the beach, sorrento centre and marina grande. All in all a great stay.More

Nice hotel in a great location
I was in Sorrento for a wedding and stayed at the Hotel Continental together with the bride and groom. It's a very nice hotel, situated just a couple of streets off the main tourist areas. This means it's quieter than some of the other hotels in town.
Service was very good, all the way from check-in to check-out.More

Due to a mix up (on my side) we were unable to stay here for our 5th consecutive year however we did have dinner on the terrace on the night of our anniversary. I cannot thank Carlo, Antonio and Mario enough for the warm friendly welcome, the slick efficient service and the beautiful anniversary flowers. The food was amazing as it always is here and the view and the setting made for a perfect evening. Will be definatley be returning next year to stay for 2 weeks not just dinner.More
