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.

A well located hotel in Sorrento

The Continental Hotel in Sorrento is beautifully located facing the Bay of Naples and Mount Vesuvius in the far distance. A sea facing very well appointed room over the top of the 1826 built iconic Hotel Bellevue Syrene, makes for the perfect place to watch over the busy port below where the ferries to Capri, Ischia, Positano and Naples are in constant action and from where the magnificent sun sets over the Bay maybe observed. The Trattoria Vitoria on the top floor provides a similar view where good food served by immaculately clad waiters may be enjoyed. These and the very friendly, helpful but rather overworked hotel employees(staff shortages?) are the plus points for this hotel. The main negative is the poor functioning wi-FI which consistently cuts out. The long pool in a non sea-facing garden which rather lacks sufficient places for those looking for shade, has a small but cheerful lunch spot. For the price, breakfasts could be of greater quality.

An excellent choice!

Just back from a week in Sorrento, where we had a fantastic week at the Continental Hotel. Having only being able to book a room with a balcony through Thomson's, I contacted the hotel to upgrade to a sea view. The hotel managed to get us room 413. It has an unhindered view from Vesuvius, across the Bay of Naples. A view you could never tire of! Well worth the cost of upgrading. The hotel was ideally situated in a quiet corner of the old town of Sorrento. A mere 5 minutes stroll to many great restaurants and bars, with the main road being another couple of minutes walk away. As mentioned by others the breakfast had a huge choice and nothing was too much for the excellent waiting staff. The rest of the hotel staff from the front desk to the room cleaners were always polite, courteous and professional. The pool area was great and the pool itself relatively quiet. So much so I managed 20-30 lengths each day to try and counteract the effects of too much excellent Italian cuisine and wine. The terrace on the roof was worth visiting for the view alone, although probably best during happy hour, as the drinks otherwise are at "hotel" prices. The rooms and the hotel itself were spotless. The hotel also has a lift that takes you directly to beach level, which was useful when we went to the ferry terminal. There may well be cheaper hotels in Sorrento, but I doubt you'd get a better location or as classy a place. I would thoroughly recommend staying here whilst visiting Sorrento.More

A class hotel

We stayed in Hotel Continental Sorento for 3 nights in July 2016 with our daughter and a friend in 2 separate rooms. Our room was a junior suite on the 3rd floor overlooking Mount Vesuvius and the sea. The staff were excellent organizing our excursions at short notice and ensuring we were well looked after by those tour operators. One should never stay at any other hotel in Sorento as this is a truly class place from location, service and staff. More

A Rare Find

We stayed at Hotel Continental for 7 wonderful nights--centrally located to the city centre and close to the Villa Commune, this was a perfect place to have day trips to the Almafi Coast, Pompei, Capri, Herculaneum and Paestum. We splurged on a balcony room overlooking the Bay of Sorrento with the view of the night lights of Naples on the opposite side of the night magical. The view was well worth the extra money and we were even treated to a 30 minute elaborate fireworks display at midnight one night (probably a wedding at the five star Bellevue Syrene next door). A lovely garden is in front of the hotel providing a quiet place to rest after a long day of touring. Hotel's restaurant was excellent and reasonably prices. It was so good that we ate here twice. The hotel will also make reservations for a shuttle car to go to two of our favorite Sorrento restaurants, ZI'Antonio Mare at Marina Grande and Restaurant Dona Sofia in the S. Lucia area. There was a daily happy hour from 7-8 p.m. with complimentary appetizers such as salami, parma ham wrapped around ricotta cheese, salmon on toast as well as half price drinks--make sure you have the limoncello as well as orangecello (a little sweeter). Drinks and dinner are served on the roof top terrace overlooking the bay in warm weather. The breakfast buffet was grand both in variety and quantity. They even had gluten free items, sugar free marmalades, granite and delicious home made yogurt. The hotel has a pool table room, gym and a lovely pool with shaded lounge chairs and movable large umbrellas. There is waiter service to the lounge chairs and light sandwiches at the pool side restaurant. Last but not least was the warmth and helpfulness of the staff--the women who cleaned our rooms, the receptionists, dining room and bar staff. Thank you to everyone for making our stay so special.More
