“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.
