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.
This Hotel is in an amazing location, walking distance to shops, restaurants and the pier. Staff are very knowledgeable, speak good English and helpful. Rooms are clean, good size, balconies give good views. Pool is big, plenty of seating and private from street. Breakfast buffet is outstanding and staff exceptional. Downside is no air conditioning until July so you are in a sealed unit if you don't want street noise, rubbish collection, fireworks etc. Shame if you want fresh air overnight.More
Felt like Royalty
We just returned from trip to Rome and Sorrento. Hotel Contenital was best experience because of view from balcony, Staff, Room, and Sorrento food. We will be back. If your not into swimming and small crowds April is when you want to go. More
Italian to the Core.
We actually liked the Continental as a building but like most places it had its good side and not so good side. We upgraded to a sea view which was a side view of the Bay of Naples but really lovely. The room was nothing special, in fact it was quite small but I've never seen an Hotel room with so many extras in the Bathroom, they seem to have thought of everything you may need, we could have left most of our toiletries at home, that's for sure. A real problem, and a surprising one for what looks like a really well built building is how thin the walls are, there is not much privacy as you can here virtually everything from next door and I'm sure they did not have the TV on full blast.
On the plus side the Breakfast was exceptional with hot and cold choices and the Head Waiter and his staff were a credit to the Hotel. The swimming pool is ideal but could perhaps have been heated as we did partake of this facility but it was freezing.
During the school term there is a problem with noise from the school close by, it was unbelievable how noisy the kids were and with all the windows open for the good weather it will get worse for the summer.
I think if we were to return to Sorrento I think we would look elsewhere to stay, expensive we thought for what you got, and the beds were so hard, I didn't get a good nights kip at all.More
Great staff, location and views.
This hotel was really well positioned in Sorrento. In a quieter square but close to everywhere. We had a sea view room with balcony which had amazing views of the sea and mount vesuvius. Worth paying the extra for.
From arriving to leaving and the 7 days in-between all the staff were friendly and proffessional. Reception booked tours for us and gave us lots of information.
Breakfast was amazing...so much choice hot and cold and staff there replenishing constantly.
Didnt use the restaurant but only because we were out and about in town each evening. The menu looked great.
We went out of season so the pool was a little cold to use but was open and stocked with towels just incase.
Little touches like chocolates and tomorrow's weather reports in the room each day were great.
Would reccommend to anyone wanting high standards and a well looked after visit to this lovely place. More

Just returned from Sorrento and the Continental following a weeks holiday there in April 2016.
It is situated about 8 minutes walk fro the main square in Sorrento but far enough out of the town in a beautiful tree lined square overlooking the Bay of Naples.
The hotel is beautifully furnished and kept immaculately clean by the pleasant band of staff.
Without exception the staff are hard working, professional, efficient and very friendly.
Antonio and his staff in the breakfast room greeted us every morning with a welcoming smile and a magnificent breakfast.
Giovanni in the bar not only dispensed drinks in the most beautiful way but engaged us in interesting conversation each night giving information about Sorrento and Italian life. His recommendation to the Marina Grande was the highlight of the week for us .
This is a magnificent hotel and I can highly recommend it.More
