Rota Suites  

The modern, spacious Rota Suites are one of the few self-catering options on offer in the centre of Sorrento.

Thanks to its central postcode, the Rota Suites are only a few minutes’ walk away from Sorrento’s squares, limoncello bars and trattorias.

The modern apartments at the Rota Suites are roomy and simply decorated, with whitewashed walls, tiled floors and smart oak furnishings. This hotel is part of the Simply Travel collection until April 2017. It will then join our Small & Friendly range – home to holidays with an authentic and intimate feel.

Best Hotel of our Trip

Honestly we would happily recommend this hotel to everyone. The staff alone are worth staying here. They are so warm and welcoming and helpful. Apartment sizes are great. Kitchen well stocked (didn't use it however). Beds comfortable including the new fold out sofa beds. WE EVEN GOT A WATER VIEW!!! Huge space for luggage so could definitely stay here for an extended period of time. Great location - walking distance to everything. There is carparking and yes the driveway is narrow but Raffaela (who is a total angel) happily sent us the measurements in advance so we could ensure we got a hire car to fit. Bit of slow navigating and we got through without a scratch. (For those of driving ... had no issues driving the coastline from Pompeii to Sorrento) The use of the pools at the sister hotel is worth the entrance fee ten fold. Great little bar downstairs with tasty pizzas and well priced drinks. Aircon worked well. We had a fantastic time and honestly wished we had stayed a lot longer. Enough gushing from me you must try it for yourself. To Rafaella and Daneilla at the Rota Suites - Thank you!More

Rota Suites

My wife, daughter (13) and I have just came back from Italy, Sorrento to be exact where we stayed at the Rota Suites apartments. What follows is some points about the holiday. Italy is a beautiful place, quaint and steeped in history. However Italians are on their own timetable and if you are a punctual bod it will drive you mad in a fortnight. Things like serving meals when they are ready (not together) a number of times one of us was finished our course while the other hadn't been served. They are also quite stubborn and can be a little arrogant at times. However they do have a good sense of humour! The Rota suites on face value look very contemporary and modern on arrival. They impressed me initially but there are irritating features that, although small become aggravating in the longer term. For example having to be out of your room for 9.00am for the once weekly clean, difficult if you have only arrived home late half charred off the day before and the worse for the local Vino. The lack of a dining-bar area is wearing as the balcony in the room had no lights, old rusty furniture and no where to hang out washed out clothing. Although the family that owned the apartment above had solved the problem by hanging their bedclothes and towels directly above us so they dripped and fluttered above us, not enough to clean the balcony floor though which was desperate for a mopping. The Grande Hotel, which the Rota Suites are sister hotel oozes class with stunning views from the swimming pool terrace, and (at first) helpful staff. However, after pointing out that our Thompson's brochure said 10euros for a bed and free for children under 14 (daughter is 13) things became a little more strained. Raffaella, who did make an effort to be nice (also the young man that opened the door at night) got very confused between their interpretation of the rules and Thompson's, insisting that we pay 6euros for s chair or bed although we believe it should have been free. We ended up going to the Grand Marina beach where you could get 3 beds and a parasol for €14 or on the sunbathing decks at €10 for a bed. We wouldn't return to the Rota Suites not because they were a disaster but things like the room overlooked a car park ( we did ask to move but apparently all rooms were full), I understand this was a quieter room but the view wasn't inspiring, the car park lights were left on all night, rubbish was not collected regularly enough, the noise from the family upstairs at 6.00am in the morning, scraping chaos around or running washing machine (possibility hoovering). The cleaning was too infrequent (feet got filthy from the tiles) etc. On the up side the apartment was 10 minuet walk to the centre square, the pop out kitchen (a mini dishwasher would have saved my nails) and easy access at all times make it a bargain if you are a hardy bunch that do not demand perfection. So! A bit of a mixed holiday for me, I will go back to Sorrento but not for a few years and with a hotel with a free pool! Sent from my iPhoneMore

Really lovely apartment in the heart of Sorrento. Ideal base really comfortable and helpful staff. Access to hotel riviera swim platform made it even better. Easy access to all the sights with public transport made the holiday affordable.More



This was a second visit to Sorrento for us. We chose Rota suites as it was self catering and being a fussy vegetarian it enables me to have a change of food from the usual pizzas/pastas. I took a couple of tuperware tubs and made a few things to take out and about in the day times. Loved shopping in the quirky food shops, so many veg choices that don't seem to be on the restaurant menus. We requested room 5 and got room 5, we were very happy but room 4 looked like it had a slightly better view. Great sunsets, sitting on the balcony. There are 2 balconies. Things i loved about Rota suites.. RAFFIELLA!...The manageress, was so lovely, kind, helpful, funny. Nothing is too much trouble. If you need any info/help, ask her she's a lovely lady. THE BATHROOM MIRROR!..Huge great mirror that lights up and doesn't steam up. The bathroom is lovely and bright/well lit. Nice and modern bathroom suite, great powerful shower, plenty of towels and toilet rolls, shampoos/conditioners/washes. Towels are changes about once or twice a week, there are plenty of them but just look after them and hang them up if you're used to them being changed every day. Oh and Raffiella, hope the fly bites on your bottom have healed now lol xx. :) FREE SAFE/AIR CON! NICE KITCHEN!..There was a bottle of water waiting in the fridge which was great as it's something you need after a long hot trip. There are 2 electric rings which heated up quickly. A microwave, which i only heated things up in although it does other things there was no manual for it and looked complicated to cook in like an oven. There are lots of plates/bowls/cutlery etc. There is some washing up liquid and tea towels but you'll need a scourer. The cutting knife could of been a bit sharper ;) . There are door to the kitchenette part so you don't have to have it on show. The bedroom had a sliding door to separate the living room. We had what we first thought, a king size bed but they were 2 beds pushed together which was fine, as they butted up tightly enough. There are electric shutters on the 2 windows which help block out the light and any noises so we got a night night's sleep. It wasn't noisy outside though, even though it was above a street, it's a side street. There is a bar below, next door but it was fairly quiet. EASY ACCESS...To Sorrento's main square/town and a short walk to the train/bus station. We found this location was perfect! YOU CAN SMOKE ON THE BALCONIES! :) LOVELY MODERN DECOR AROUND THE HOTEL. LOVELY GRAND RIVIERA hotel which is the one you can use the pool/beach, although not a beach, it's a platform. You pay 10 euros per person at the reception and it's a short walk down to the hotel. You get a towel there. The pool is on hotel level but we used the "beach", which you get to by going into the hotel, on the left there is a lift down. You show them your ticket, you get a towel and choice your sunbeds. They overlook Mount Vesuvius, lovely view, quiet, waiter service, a few sandwich snacks/drinks. The sea is lovely to swim in, walking into it by some steps (if you are not good on your legs though the steps are vertical like boat steps). There is a toilet there and showers too. This was my fave place to sunbathe in between day trips as other public places around Sorrento are so busy. You couldn't leave your bags unattended there but you can in the hotel. There is free wifi in the rooms but it was a bit hit and miss. There is a computer in the lobby that is free to use with a better signal. Not much on tv, we found one film chanel in English though. PLENTY OF SOCKETS at Rota suites, in every room. There is also an area with a full length mirror and selves, with sockets so you've got a few for doing your hair. All in all i couldn't fault staying here and we will definitely come back again in a couple of years. Thank you so much for a great stay! Lots of love Steve Opie & Juliet xxxMore

Lovely apartment

Great place to stay in Sorrento. We travelled with our daughters, 19 and 17, and it was more than big enough for four of us. Very clean and modern; friendly reception staff; well situated for the town. Air conditioning was a godsend and we made good use of the beach access at the Grand Hotel Riviera, expensive at €10 each but very worth it on a hot day. Bar next door also very friendly and a good place to sit and watch the world go by. Easy walking distance to restaurants and shops etc. Great place. More
