“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.

Our stay at Hotel Continental could not have been better. From the front desk to the restaurants to the bar, all staff were most helpful. They helped arrange tours, recommended restaurants and shops. Our room was clean, spacious, quiet and comfortable. And our view of Mt Vesuvius from our balcony was spectacular. We look forward to our next visit.More

This Hotel is an absolute gem. The rooms are magnificent, the staff are amazing. The location is to die for, with beautiful views of the Bay of Naples. The breakfasts they provide are a feast in themselves. We will definitely return.More

Great location,friendly staff
We stayed at the continental hotel for six nights,the hotel has a great location ,walking distance to all shops and restaurants,the staff were extremely helpful,I'd like to mention Antonio and Franco at the breakfast room and I hope they read this,we loved our chats in the morning and the banter between the two of them made the four of us laugh,thank you to both of you.When we return we will stay there again and have absolutely no problem recommending this hotel,no negatives but will mention the noise from other rooms and the noise from the school next door but they are small issues really.More

Service is exceptional
My wife and I found The Grand Hotel Continental Sorrento on Expedia and we stayed for 4 nights in May 2015. The hotel is absolutely flawless. I believe it is a 4.5 star maybe 5 and definitely deserves 5 full stars. Location. It's on a high cliff overlooking the water. It's centrally located and just a few steps to the port or cafes and restaurants. Hotel and grounds. The hotel is beautifully maintained with a modern feel wrapped in a historic look. The pool was large and meticulously kept. The water blue and refreshing not sure they heat the water. Deck loungers were comfortable and towels provided free at pool side. Service was available pool side too. There are other Grand Hotels in Sorrento and all are nice. This one was affordable comparatively...worth every penny of about $260 US each night. Staff. We can't say enough about the staff. The front desk welcomed us each time we arrived downstairs or back for the day. Wait staff remembered our preferences and served us like royalty. Housekeeping was very friendly and efficient. Thank you Antonio and your team for such friendly impeccable service. Rooms. Our room was a sea view room #205. Classic European room which means fairly small but enough room to get comfortable. 2 single beds pushed together. Bathroom had a wonderful shower. Lots of plugs for our various devices. Free wifi on the property. If you like a firm bed you won't be disappointed. Food. Our room package included buffet breakfast. If you have breakfast there you are in for a treat. They offer everything you could want from cold drinks to fruit to meat to cooked eggs multiple styles to desserts to specialty coffees. You select your own food in buffet style but waiters serve you coffees and any special needs. Antonio was delightful. Friendly, fun and Uber efficient. There was no cost for breakfast but we did leave tips for such excellent service. Overall. We can't wait to come back to Sorrento. Such a beautiful city that is very walkable and has so many sights to take in from the cliffs to the port to the restaurants/cafes to museums to other destinations for day trips like Capri and Amalfi Coast. We can't wait to return and enjoy Sorrento some more with our kids. We will for sure stay at Grand Hotel Continental as we want it to be perfect again. More

Wonderful friendly staff,superb hotel
Everybody was charming from chambermaids to reception staff. Antonio who looked after us at breakfast was a star, helping us with local info. The hotel looks over the bay and is in a quiet location but only 200 metres from the town. We would love to stay again.More
