A central Sorrento location and self-catering facilities are the standout features of these contemporary suites.
These modern, spacious suites are one of the few self-catering options available along this part of Campania. Apartments are spacious and simply decorated, with whitewashed walls, tiled floors and contemporary furnishings. In each one, a compact oak kitchenette is tucked into the open-plan living-dining room, while the bathroom and bedrooms are hidden discreetly behind sliding doors. All apartments have balconies with a table and chairs.
There’s a supermarket a couple of minutes’ walk away, where you can stock up on fresh Italian ingredients and local wine. The cafés and trattorias in Piazzo Lauro are just 2 minutes’ walk away, and the main square, Piazza Tasso, is a further 10 minutes on foot. The train and bus stations are close by, too, so daytrips to Naples, Pompeii and the rest of the Amalfi Coast are easy. The harbour, from where you can catch boats across to Capri, is a 10-15 minute walk away – just bear in mind that there are steep steps to reach it.
Although there isn’t a pool at the Rota Suites, guests can make the most of the clifftop pool and private beach at the Hotel Grand Riviera, 5 minutes’ walk away.

Excellent experience in Sorrento
We are glad, we chose Sorrento as a base for our tours to Mt. Vesuvius, Pompeii, Capri and Amalfi Drive. Sorrento is a lovely town, offering excellent hospitality, friendly people, yummy food and great weather. We chose Rota Suits as it is a serviced apartment. It has an excellent location, just a 5 minute walk from where tourist buses leave for these destinations, as well as just minutes away from the main shopping and restaurant areas and also close to grocery stores. We had heard seem good reviews about Rota's staff. But what we experienced was much more than anything we had expected. The warmth, friendliness and professional care that we received was exemplary. Raffaella, Daniella and Vincent are so forthcoming with information and willing to help with reservations, or any convenience that you may seek. They went beyond the call of duty to help us with arrangements for a car, laundry, recommendations and reservations for restaurants, directions to grocery stores, shops, etc. They were so caring and attentive to our needs, we almost felt like we were at home and with our extended family. Rota Suits has washing machine and drying facilities at the common area and the front desk is very helpful with it. The corner kitchenette in the room, is adequate for putting a breakfast together, packing a lunch or making small warm dinner for a family. The master bedroom is comfortable and bright. The pullout bed for our kids was also comfortable and easy to operate. The bathroom is spacious and the walk-in-wardrobe is spacious enough to fit a few pieces of luggage, etc. We are so glad we chose Sorrento as our base and Rota Suits are our den. We do hope to be back there for more explorations as well as to meet with our new friends.More

After 14 days of hotels throughout Italy, our family of four (kids 10 and 11) finished our vacation with 5 nights at the Rota Suites. We loved it! The reception staff was attentive and enjoyable. Prior to our arrival, I had emailed a couple of questions and always received prompt responses. We had a corner room with a huge balcony. Very nice. As some mentioned in prior reviews, it did get a bit noisy, but only when we were sitting on the balcony, and it was fun to see all the italian activity! Once the doors were closed and the air conditionning was working - no issues with outside noises. The room was clean, except for the floors - although it was not visible, we had to wash our feet every night... Kitchen was great (just missing wine glasses). We had breakfast there and one lunch. Perfect! Grocery store within a 10 minute walk. Small restaurant/pub right beside (very good). Location was excellent - 7 minutes to train station, 10 to Piazza Tasso, 6 to Hotel Grand Riviera. Walking to the main Piazza was easy and an enjoyable stroll. We adored the access to the Grand Riviera and used it every day without any issues. It was included in our stay and we throughly enjoyed the beach area as well as the pool. Sun beds were always available. Employees were friendly, everything was clean and welcoming. The views are breathtaking. This access is a perfect complement to the Rota suites set-up. I had selected the Rota suites because of price, access to the Grand Riviera and location. It did not disappoint. We would definitely recommend the Rota Suite.More

Good base for exploring Sorrento and Amalfi coast
We spent two weeks at Rota Suites and it made an excellent base for exploring the area. So long as you are expecting a town-centre apartment, not a scenic beach-side hotel, you will not be disappointed. I agree with the recent reviews. The suites are spacious with simple, modern furnishings and equipment. Air con worked well and the wifi was OK in the living area of the suite (but not in the bedroom). We didn't sit on the balconies because the weather was so hot, but they were still useful for drying towels etc. Raffaella and the other staff were unfailingly friendly, helpful and efficient which made our stay more enjoyable. It may be worth booking directly with the Suites as apparently they can do a much better price than through Expedia etc. Access to the Riviera hotel was definitely a benefit, to enjoy the terrace with sea views etc. which you don't have in the suites themselves. We particularly liked being able to sit in the shade at the bottom of the cliffs by the bathing platform. My advice regarding trips in the area would be to spend your money on one or two private tours rather than three or four public excursions, to get the best Amalfi experience. We had a mini 'holiday within a holiday' on Capri, which was lovely in the evenings, and the 3-hour private boat tour there (200 euros) was so much more enjoyable than the over-subscribed public boat trips we had done earlier in our stay. Far better value to live like a VIP for a few hours rather than endure a whole day like a sheep being herded on and off noisy, hot boats/buses!More
Great holiday , highly recommend
We arrived home from the Rota Suites last night and had a wonderful week there. The staff are lovely and the suites modern and in a really good location for exploring Sorrento. There were three of us travelling, myself and husband with our 15 year old son. We had an apartment on the first floor with two balconies overlooking a busy road where we all loved sitting watching the Italian driving! We've never seen so many mopeds. Our advice would be not to drive here!! Despite this location it was surprising quiet inside the suites with the shutters down which also made the room nice and dark so we all slept very well, even our son on the sofa bed. The air-conditioned apartment was a good size and well equipped for self-catering. Wifi was free, very slow from the room, but was fast enough to stream video when in the lobby. We made good use of the pool and sea at the associated Grand Hotel Rivera and found the staff here also very friendly and welcoming, it is less than a five minute walk away. We'd taken towels but were pleasantly surprised that these are provided at the pool as were deckchairs/parasols and one day when it was quiet we were also given sun beds free of charge. Sorrento itself is a delight, with bustling Italian streets well into the night. There are restaurants galore and terraced cafes to sit and watch the world go by. We never once felt uncomfortable, or vulnerable to pick-pockets. Overall, highly recommended.More

Poor value for money, not baby friendly
We have just returned from a week's stay at the Rota Suites with our 4 year old, 6 month old and my parents (in 2 apartments) and we were more than a little disappointed. The suites are nice, although pretty small and basic. The views from the balconies were not great - a busy road from one and wasteland from the other. The TV channel availability was terrible, the wifi was pathetic, you were not permitted to decide what temperature to set the air conditioning, and the hot water was barely warm enough to shower with / wash dishes. The rooms are only cleaned once a week which meant that our apartment floor was absolutely filthy for the majority of our stay. I don't even think the floor was cleaned when the maid did come in on her weekly visit. The dish rack to put clean dishes in was pretty filthy and the kettle was covered in lime scale, which wasn't great for making the baby's bottles. We asked for another but the next 2 they offered were both the same. We eventually gave up and boiled water in a pot instead. Fresh towels only once during a 7 night stay was pretty poor. What really spoiled it for us was that all they seemed to care about was making money. We were aware of it in advance (and had in fact challenged Thomson on it before the holiday) but the charge of 14 euros a night for a cot for the baby was just ridiculous. How can they possibly think this is reasonable given what we had already paid for the apartment? We arrived late at night and had barely set foot in the door before the night receptionist was charging us for the cot, which had to be paid then and there in cash. It left a very sour taste after a six hour journey to get there with 2 little ones - not quite the welcome we expected! The cot they provided the first night was very poor, it was an old travel cot that was very badly bowed in the middle. We complained and we were given a better wooden one the next day. The first cot was not worth 14 cents never mind 14 euros but there was no offer of a refund. We booked through Thomson so we got to use the pool at the Hotel Riviera down the road. The 6 euro charge for a sun bed seemed like just another rip off. For the money we paid, I think it would be reasonable to expect free use of a sun bed at the pool. They had even watered down the washing up liquid, I mean seriously how much does that save them - a few euros?? The receptionist pretended to be nice but to be honest it all seemed a bit fake, in reality she was not interested at all in helping us. Check out was very early at 10am and we had a late flight back on our last day so we asked if we could keep on a room a little longer but we were told the rooms were fully booked and that was that, so we had to go 6 hours in the 30+ degree heat with our little baby. I felt they could have done more to help but they just seemed uninterested. All in all we had a pretty poor experience at the Rota Suites. For the price we paid we expected so much better. This place is not baby friendly and we would not return.More
