Hotel Continental  

“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 great position

Lovely hotel in a convenient position close to port and restaurants and shops.Lovely hotel pool,unfortunately the pier was closed for the winter.Wonderful breakfast buffet that changed each day served by charming staff. The extra touches of the evening turn down service with clean towels and chocolate made it special. The Seaview was worth it but as Sorrento is north facing at this time of year it didn't get much sun. Definitely would book again.More

Best hotel in Sorrento!

What a grand place to stay, I was impressed right away on entry. Staff very attentive and helpful, polite and speak English. They upgraded my room for no extra so we had a balcony which was great and a view. The room and beds were lovely, excellent bathroom with complimentary bathrobes and slippers. Great attention to detail. The pool is divine to come home to after a long days sightseeing. Breakfast was the most amazing spread of food I have ever much choice and everything you could want! Then there's the restaurant! The best food and value for money and service in all of Sorrento. Antonio the Maître D and his staff are at your every whim! Top choice, you can't go wrong.More

Beautiful hotel on the Mediterranean!

This was the most beautiful hotel we stayed in on our trip to Italy. Absolutely beautiful, outstanding breakfast, front desk employees extremely helpful and very nice. Great views! Beautiful room! Very nice park to sit in and enjoy the spectacular views right out in front. We were with a tour group of 41 people and everything could not have gone better! Loved it!!!!More

Clean, elegant, centrally located. Easy to get to the beach with a private elevator that takes you 3-floors down. From here its minutes away from the port and onto a ferry to bring you to Capri or other destinations like Positano and Amalfi. Had a wonderful time here. We will definitely be back as soon as our bank account will allow!!More

Old school

The Continental has that kind of charm you don't find too often in these corporatized days. The location was fabulous, just past the hectic part of town but not too far, and across from a nice little park where the locals bring their dogs to have a run. One truly incredible part of our stay was taking their lift right down to the beach which is about 100 meters vertically by stairs and is also the way to the ferry wharf if you're going over to Capri, awesome!!! The staff here are professional and attentive, the two guys who run the food and beverage are worth the cost of accommodation alone, so funny and so great at what they do, but always with a gag attached. Being here enabled us to get to Capri, Positano Pompeii and Amalfi easily geographically it is perfect. We hired a driver via the concierge which made the trip down the coast road much more relaxing than driving ourselves and was good value at 40 Euros per hour all set up by the hotel front desk. Highly recommended if you're visiting the region,,the hotel,is older but in very good condition and had everything required for an enjoyable four nights.More
