Hotel Continental  

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.

Just returned!

Just returned from a ten night stay. Cannot fault the attentive staff, our case was delayed by 4 days but staff kept us informed and helped where they could. Perfect location near the main areas of bars and restaurants. Pool area lovely however drinks were pricey but a necessity in the heat! Amazing selection at breakfast and staff happy to give you a takeaway bag on request, perfect if out on a day trip. More


Mixed review

This was our 5th visit to sorrento but the first time at this hotel. I travelled with my husband ( it was our anniversary, we married in sorrento) our children aged 5 & 2 and my in laws. The hotel itself is lovely and well situated. Check in was fine and the staff were friendly. The room was ok it was a standard room (120) with a sofa bed for the kids which did make it feel a little cramped. It didn't have its own balcony as such you had to walk through a shared court yard and up some steps to a bathing platform quite high up which wasn't very child friendly. The bathroom came with everything you could possibly need but there was so much in there that there wasn't any room for anything else so storage was a problem. As with every other hotel we have stayed in there was no tea/coffee making facilities, no decent hair dryer or iron. But this is normal for Italy. There isn't much choice at breakfast unless chicken soup is your thing. And it took a while to get a hot drink. We did try the pool but again not very child friendly and the pool bar staff can be quite rude. On our departure we were leaving before breakfast opened and as we had paid for bed and breakfast we did enquire the night before if it would be possible to get a drink before we left and the answer was no. So we were expected to take two young children on an hour long transfer to the airport without a drink or anything to eat. I know it's not the hotels fault that we were leaving early but a drink would have been nice especially seeing as we had already paid for it. Having said all this we still had a fantastic time most of the staff were great especially the housekeeping who always stopped to talk to the kids. On our departure the staff member behind the desk was again very rude to my husband regarding a waiting taxi which we thought might have been ours so we didn't really get a good final memory. We will defiantly return to sorrento just not sure if we will return to this hotel. More

Family Trip for Parents 50th Anniversary

Everything was spectacular! We were a family of 10 mostly adults, and one 17 & 11 year old. The hotel was very clean. Rooms were comfortable and the service was amazing. The location of the hotel could have been better for us. Close to shopping, beach and easily accessible. The elevator down to the beach was very helpful. The Terrazzo was beautiful and that is where we had our first dinner when we checked in. Beautiful view, amazing food, drinks and service! The breakfast in the morning was beyond our expectations. Everyone loved it! We can't wait to get back to Sorrento! Caio for now... More


Could do better

Hotel : Very nice Location : Superb Staff: Very pleasant, helpful and courteous Breakfast: Quite poor for hotel that is rated 4 star Rooms: Very nice but the child bed for our 14 year old son was pretty shoddy, basically a metal camp bed with mattress which was too big for frame, my son actually fell out of bed one night which was a bit of a worry, also upon arrival his bed cover had something on it which shouldn't have been there, I can only assume it was used by the previous guest to change a baby's nappy on, and wasn't changed before our arrival Little things make all the differenceMore

From start to finish. There was nothing to fault at this fabulous hotel. The staff are friendly, courteous and professional. They could offer training to some of the local restaurants on how to treat customers. The Hotel itself is fantastic, decorated in a exquisite fashion, with an oldy world charm but with all the necessary modern cons. I would highly recommend.More
