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.

Very friendly and classy hotel

The location. A short walk from the public lift to the top of the cliffs. Turn right, half a mile and you are there. From the moment you step in the door the staff can't do enough for you. They all speak good English. Antonio who appears to run the catering was fantastic and gave us plenty of useful local info. The hotels and pool look great. The bar was very comfortable. Giovani the award winning cocktail waiter was a treat, you must try the 'Giumper'. If you are visiting Sorrento and want a great looking, friendly and comfortable place to stay, this is a good choice.More

wonderful time

We had a wonderful time during our twelve days at the Continental Hotel in Sorrento, It is set back in a park that is delightful "to come home to" , close to our favorite restaurant, L'Abate, and the 5* restaurant, La Boca,, and is around the corner from the elevator taking you down to the Little Marina where you take the ferries to Capri, Naples, etc, (or steps, if you would rather). There is a lovely church in the Plaza nearby and a concert on Mondays. The staff was congenial and helpful, the breakfast varied and immense, plus, because we were there off season, they updated our room with no extra thoughtful of them. We had a spacious room with a balcony overlooking magnificent view. We could not have asked for more.More

Perfect Location and Service

This charming hotel is a good 10-15 min walk from the station but end of the road, its worth it. Its a sweet charming hotel, impeccable service and the location! Right in front of Mt Vesuvius. Although we only had a v restricted view of the sea, the little sit-out that we had attached to our room made up for it. the breakfast is excellent -the variety, range and presentation + the superb service provided especially by Mr Antonio and his staff. Clean and calm, Prompt and polite, v hassle-free and relaxing stay. the outdoor pool unfortunately we could not use as it was too cold already (not heated).More

Old world elegance in the perfect Sorrento location

The Continental Hotel Sorrento is an absolutely charming period hotel in a prime location overlooking the bay with stunning views across to Mt Vesuvius. Ideally positioned to enjoy local restaurants (a few minutes walk down to the beach) or those throughout Sorrento township, the hotel is full or charm and old fashioned warm hospitality and service. From arrival and check-in, through the dining experience and check-out, service was polite, professional and courteous. The front desk staff were friendly and helpful and all the waiter staff at breakfast and dinner were delightful and provided excellent service. The breakfast buffet was extensive with a mix of fresh fruits, pastries, yoghurt and even gelato, accompanied by cured meats and cheeses, breads and a daily selection of hot food and Italian favourites. The décor of the rooms reflects the grandeur of the hotel’s foyer, dining room and bar, but are a little dated – although perfectly comfortable. The only issue was that regardless of the weather, the hotel disables the air-conditioning system on September 30 – the only alternative offered to us on the sunny and warm days we stayed in mid-October was to open the window. For a four star hotel, it seems a bit unreasonable to apply a blanket rule to all rooms and deny visitors what is a basic and standard room inclusion in hotels around the world, even in one and two star hotels. While it made for some uncomfortable warm nights of little sleep, it didn’t detract from what was otherwise a lovely visit to Sorrento.More

Lovely Hotel

This hotel is lovely and located in the nice part of the town, everything is near, the lift to the port/beach, shops, marina is a short walk away. The staff are absolutely lovely, cannot fault any of them, and the breakfast was great, something for everyone, never seen so much choice before. The walk from the station/bus stop to the hotel is around a 10-15 minutes walk, not that easy pulling a case on wheels because the streets are cobbled, but we did it there and back so it is not a big deal, unless you have money to waste you can jump in a taxis, journey is short and expensive. Just so you know the bus is situated outside departures at the airport, you cannot miss it. If you want to take the train it is more complicated because you would need to get to Naples town, negotiate to cross a busy road, then the train takes ages because it stops at every single stop. It is easier and cheaper to jump on the bus which drops you off at Sorrento train station. I would definitely stay here again.More
