“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, great location
We stayed here for a week over half term in May 2014 with 12 family members/friends who attended our Wedding in Sorrento. The staff were incredibly friendly and polite and made us all feel very welcome â in particular making the children in our party feel special. It was also my Father-in-Lawâs birthday while we were away and they made him a special cocktail and cake on the day (Without prompting from any of us). On check-in we were given a room opposite my parents, allocated after the staff noticed the same surname on two bookings which was a nice touch. The electricity in our room wasnât working when we got up there but we informed reception and they sent someone up straight away to fix it, which only took a few minutes. I was disappointed with not having a sea view room but this was due to Thomsonâs booking policy, not the hotel (We couldnât have a child bed in a sea view room according to Thomson). Luckily my parents had the room opposite so we used this room to get ready on the morning of our Wedding and to take photos from the balcony. Unfortunately our side of the hotel was basically a building site with constant noise all day long which did make relaxing at the hotel somewhat difficult. I imagine by now this work has probably finished so I wouldnât let this put you off, we had a wonderful time in the hotel and in Sorrento in general. The hotel is ideally located near the centre of the town and within walking distance of the nearby marina.More
Very nice hotel, excellent staff, great location
Stayed in September 2014. Hotel was ideally located between the old port and main port. View was stunning. Hotel was very clean, tidy and comfortable good sized rooms with a lovely view from the balcony. The staff were excellent. So friendly and helpful, couldn't fault them. Very nice swimming pool with waiter service. All very good. More

We stayed here in July 2014 for 5 nights. I am so glad we booked this hotel. Firstly the location was perfect - pretty close to everything from the harbour to the restaurants of Sorrento. The service was amazing. We were first put in a room opposite the building site but we asked if we could be moved away from this as it was quite noisy. They weren't able to move us that day but did on the second night to a room with a sea view! The front desk were very helpful with directions and recommendations. The best service however was in the restaurant during breakfast, the staff were so helpful, charming and friendly. The general areas and rooms were very nicely kept and clean and the swimming pool was well maintained. The pool is not heated but that is very welcome in the searing heat of July! Overall a lovely base to explore Sorrento.More

I have been meaning to write a review for sometime so apologies! We stayed in August for 1 week, myself, husband and our 8 year old daughter. What can I say? we loved our stay here, our room was spacious and we received the best service from the friendly staff! It was a fantastic location to explore Sorrento and the Amalfi Coast. We especially loved Leonelli's Beach which had direct access through the hotel in the underground lift! We look forward to returning soon to the Hotel Continental and lovely Sorrento!More

Best meal we have had in Sorrento for a long time
We usually avoid the restaurants and pubs at the holiday peak as we are so often disappointed but last night the Conti really excelled. I had the warm chicken salad which included pomegranate seeds and a terrific balsamic. Marg had the Atlantic Salmon which was the best she had had at Sorrento. She wants to go back to work out what is in the salsa. The others had steaks and mussels which they enjoyed. The service was good despite the fact that they were so busy. I thought the prices were fair for SorrentoMore
