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.
There's no pool at the suites, but feel free to make the most of the clifftop pool and private beach at the Hotel Grand Riviera, just a 5 minute walk away. Sunbeds are included for your entry fee, and children under 14 go free.
These 1 bedroom apartments come with air-con from 1st June to 10th September and free Wi-Fi. There’s twin bedroom plus a double sofabed in the lounge. And you’ll have a kitchenette plus balcony for that extra bit of space. Cots are available. The need to be requested pre-travel and are payable locally.
Very comfortable apartment, brand new, good bathroom, perfect location, team always ready to help you, specially Raffaella, a blessed and very kind recepcionist. Strongly recommend, very close to Positano, Amalfi and Ravello and its location makes Naples and Pompei very accessable too.More
The Rota Suites in Sorrento are clean, modern, comfortable and ideally placed at the edge of the town. A supermarket is a short walk away so you can stock up the kitchen. The reception staff were very helpful and friendly. We were 2 adults and 2 teenagers and we had more than enough room. Highly recommendedMore
Stayed here for one week. Apartment is amazing. Good location just outside town centre. Bakery round corner and bar next door. Everything about this place was amazing. Would definitely go back again!!More
Fabulous base for exploring independently
We visited in April 16 with our two children (10 and 5). As the other reviews said, the apartments are in a fantastic little spot looking over towards Naples and a few minutes' walk into the heart of Sorrento.
We stayed in suite 10, which included a bedroom with two single beds, a lovely modern bathroom with a good shower, and a living area with sofa bed. We put the kids in the bedroom and used the sofa bed ourselves, so that they could get some sleep while we enjoyed watching the world go by over a glass of wine on the balcony adjacent to the living area.
We found the kitchenette to include everything you need to make a simple breakfast (cereals, toast, coffee) picnic (good sized fridge) and a basic supper when you aren't eating out (pasta or salad, etc). We stocked up at the nearby Deco supermarket which had most things you could need.
The apartments are ideal if you don't want the formality of hotel life (e.g. We prefer to have breakfast in pjs at our own leisure and pay supermarket prices for wine!). You really have all the comforts of a hotel without the restrictions on space or catering. We used the kitchen to make picnics and store snacks for the kids after a long day exploring.
Finally, the staff were so welcoming and kind. They couldn't do enough to help us, and offered useful information on everything from airport transfers to shopping.
We really look forward to returning to beautiful Sorrento, and in particular, the Rota Suites.More

Ideal location, beautiful flat, golden reception staff, can't fault
We travelled in late April/ early May 2016 with Thomson, for a two week stay. The drive from Naples airport took just over an hour, and we were shown our apartment by the lovely Rafeala, who had excellent English, and gave lots of advice about the area. Rota suites are located about 10 minutes walk to the train/ bus station, and a few minutes further to the main Tasso Plazza, in a suburban area, just outside the tourist hordes, so we thought it ideally placed.
We were in Apartment 1, which had two balconies overlooking the car park, but had the advantage of being very quiet and got sun most of the day, and a stunning view of the mountains behind. The upper levels appear to be privately owned apartments, so we really felt part of the local community, as we watched the washing being hung out and people heading for work each morning.
The flat was spotless, provided with a combination grill/oven/microwave, two ring hob, refrigerator with ice compartment, kettle, toaster plus pots and crockery and a couple of tea towels. Washing up liquid and dish sponges are not provided. A 'starter' kit of tea bags, coffee and water were provided, as well as three loo rolls. which you will need to replenish. The lounge area has a bed settee and TV. The bedroom has a double bed , side tables, safe and drawers and TV. We did not use the TV, so can't comment.
There is a wardrobe and the bathroom was spotless. An initial starter kit of shampoo and soap is provided and restocked once a week, when the flat is cleaned. There is a daily bin emptying service provided.
As a self catering flat this is ideal to explore Sorrento, and we also did organised tours to Rome, Naples and Pompeii and Herculaneum. We caught the public service bus (SITA) from the bus station to Amalfi for 8 Euro each, for 24 hour use of any local bus to view the Amalfi coastline, which was excellent value for money. The journey is around 90 minutes, and the tickets can be bought by a stall next to the bus stop. We also walked down to Marina Piccalo to catch the ferry to Capri. (about 35Euro return) and had a very enjoyable day exploring Capri.
In short, Sorrento and the Rota Suites are an ideal base to explore this part of Italy. We would recommend this without hesitation.More
