The Hotel Continental combines a setting in the heart of Sorrento with panoramic views.
The Hotel Continental is set just behind the cliff edge in the centre of Sorrento, overlooking the Bay of Naples and, in the distance, the brooding slopes of Mount Vesuvius.
The hotel really makes the most of the views. In the lobby – where marble floors and chandeliers create a classically Italian feel – floor-to-ceiling windows open up views of Mount Vesuvius. This hotel is part of the Simply Travel range until April 2017.

Wonderful staff makes up for mediocre accommodations
This was a trip back in September 2016 and we stayed at the Hotel Continental for 4 nights. The highlights: - Location: Easily the BEST part of the hotel. It's quietly tucked away from the hustle and bustle, yet close enough to walk comfortably to stroll around town. Easily walkable to the elevator down to the ferry dock (or take the stairs) to get to Capri. Was attending a conference at the Hilton which is way too far from everything else. - The front desk and service staff was superb. Friendly, helpful, attentive and not overbearing. I had actually left an item behind and the staff was kind enough to locate it and scan the document and email to me AND mail the hardcopy. Cannot say how impressed I was. - The breakfast spread is HUGE and tasty. European style (don't expect an omelet station). The lows: - The bed felt like my college dorm mattress. It was plasticky and uncomfortable. - The walls are thin. I could hear the guy in the next room snoring. He may have been a loud snorer, but still... - We chose a classic room with balcony. The views from the balcony are of a school next door. I would wake up to step out onto the balcony and see kids staring into my room. BOTTOM LINE, don't waste your time with the balcony room. If you don't have a sea view, your balcony view is of the school. Overall, was happy with the hotel due to the location and the staff. Save for the few caveats mentioned above, we had a great time at the Hotel Continental.More

Great location but outdated hotel!
We stayed here for our honeymoon for two nights and had an okay stay. The location was great - it was a quick walk from the elevators from the port and a short walk into the main part of Sorrento. I actually liked being outside of the main square since it was much quieter and calmer. This hotel was probably vary lavish and extravagant back in the day but now it just seems super outdated and tacky. The rooms are fine - pretty small but clean and comfortable. Bathrooms were tiny. We had a tiny balcony which was nice. The breakfast buffet was... interesting. It was HUGE but it had the weirdest options. It seemed like they were trying to do a little too much and ended up not doing anything that well. Service here was okay. We told them that we were there for our honeymoon but no one said anything or seemed to care. When we asked for lunch recommendations, the person at the front desk just sent us to the main square and said that there were a lot of restaurants there. It's not like anyone did anything wrong but no one went above and beyond to make our stay amazing. Our favorite things at this hotel were the pool and the amazing rooftop bar. We went to the rooftop for happy hour and had a great view of Vesuvius and the water. Service was so so and they had some weird snacks for apertivos. Again, it seemed like they were trying to be really fancy but it definitely fell short. But, the views were amazing and totally worth the money spent on drinks. The hotels in Sorrento are pricey and this hotel was no exception. While I really liked the location and the rooftop bar, I'd probably stay somewhere else if I ever found myself in the area again. It seemed like there were a ton of hotels that might be more modern and customer service focused for the same price.More
We stayed here for the last few days of our honeymoon in Sorrento. Really lovely hotel and very friendly staff. We were upgraded to the biggest suite in the hotel which was amazing. The balcony and views were unbelievable. The staff at breakfast were lovely and really good fun.More
I initially picked this hotel due to it's position in Sorrento, close to both marinas, shops, restaurants and a short walk from the train/bus station, it was very central to everything and it had a rooftop terrace. When we arrived we discovered the staff were very helpful and nothing was too much trouble. The room was a good size, with a balcony and although we didn't book a sea view, we overlooked the pool and could see the sea off to one side. The breakfasts were amazing and the restaurant staff made us feel very welcome and even made time to share their great sense of humour!! The whole hotel was beautifully clean and well kept, the only disappointing thing was that they were working on the roof terrace so it was closed whilst we were there. I would definitely recommend this lovely place to anyone thinking of going to stay in Sorrento.More
A Perfect Stay
Travelling as two couples, we arrived at our booked hotel & realized immediately that we had made a huge mistake. We could not have stayed there. We started looking to move right away. Hotel Continental saved us. They were very friendly & helpful on the phone. That was only the start. We were greeted by name upon our arrival by the young gentleman who we had spoken with. His English was flawless & he could not have been nicer. That continued to apply to all the staff at all levels. Our rooms were unfortunately not sea view, but they were large, clean & lovely. We had very large verandas & the tiled bedroom floors were beautiful. The breakfast buffet was large & fresh & had something for everyone, including our Gluten free friend. The bar at night time was cozy & the homemade limoncello & orangecello!! But, you must have dinner in the dining room. Antonio will look after you perfectly. (You might just be lucky enough to see him in the morning as well). All of our meals were so excellent we ate there twice. Thank you Hotel Continental for saving our stay in your beautiful city. More
