A large pool and Sorrento’s shops and cafés close by make a winning combination.
The hotel is very well placed for views of Mount Vesuvius. And it’s handy for getting into Sorrento, too – the main square, Piazza Tasso, is less than 10 minutes’ walk from here.
The pool is generously proportioned, with plenty of room for laps, and there’s a bar at one end for drinks and snacks. The restaurant serves buffet breakfasts and waiter-service dinners alongside first-rate views.
In the UK, this holiday is only available from the Thomson group.

2nd time around, didn't fail us
This was our 2nd visit after having a lovely time in March. Both times the hotel didn't fail to deliver. The waiting staff work really hard and are pleasant. I was even brought room service one evening at no extra charge when unwell. 3 course evening meals are of a good standard as is the breakfast with plenty of choice. On one night the hotel put on a gala evening with extra special treatment and service. The rooms were decent with views of vesuvius, cleaned daily. The hotel is in an ideal spot not far from the main station and shops with a great little coffee shop on the corner near the station. There is quite a lot to do nearby (shops, marina grande/piccolo, gardens, city tour bus ) but it's also very easy by public transport to get to positano, amalfi, herculaneum, pompeii, naples and ravello, capri. Would definitely stay at this hotel if visiting Sorrento again.More
Grand hotel Flora
Just back from sorrento we stayed at the grand hotel Flora The hotel is located about 10 mins from centre of sorrento. The hotel is quitelarge and staff are very good The room was good with a balcony and was very clean as was the bathroom The dining room was on the 5th floor with a great views of the bay. Food was good plenty to choose from we would definitely stay there again. Sorrento is lovely and an excellent base to get aroundMore
Rooms need a thorough cleaning, there's no concierge so front desk staff needs training in tourism
This fall we went with Exotic Tours on a long stay to Sorrento, with a 6 day stop in Rome. Both cities are amazing.... good combination of days by Exotic. Six of us booked a long stay in Portugal last year with Exotic and their use of the Vila Petra in Albufeira with Don and Joanne as their hosts was great. This time their choice for clients to stay at the Grand Flora, however, and to use Teresa as an assistant were both completely disappointing. Our room had blood stains on the box spring, black mold and an absolutely filthy vent in the bathroom and after many days we had to ask our bedding to be changed. On the upside, the 5th floor dining room had a delightful view with efficient and extremely friendly staff. In addition, our barmaid, Michelle, was an absolute delight, who served us munchies with our drinks the first 3 or 4 nights. On subsequent nights when she didn't bring any she told us that when our group left, the hotel was closing down so the owner didn't replenish the chips when they ran out because they would be closing. We brought our own snacks to the lobby bar after that and Michelle felt so bad she even brought some olives for us from her own home!! The owner even took the satellite receiver from the lobby bar home with him for a couple nights. Front desk staff wasn't helpful with tours and sightseeing (one couple even missed a tour because they were given the wrong directions) and Teresa didn't show on the days Exotix had scheduled her to, so the 40ish of us who were there were on our own for booking tours and outings. There are many hotels in Sorrento...... our advice would be to look at one of them and perhaps you will find one with comfy beds and efficient WiFi.More
Great location, decent hotel
Firstly, the location is perfect! It's an easy 5 minute walk to the train station and 10 minutes to the centre of beautiful Sorrento. Staff are welcoming, and helpful. The rooms are pretty basic, but very clean and a decent size. I will agree with some other reviews that maybe it's a little 'tired' and the rooms could perhaps do with a spruce up, but it certainly wasn't enough to impair my enjoyment of my stay! The food is ok, and there is certainly plenty of it. Again waiting staff are efficient and helpful. And the view of Vesuvius from the dining room is spectacular. My main gripe with the hotel is the lack of wifi. For a four star hotel to not have wifi in the rooms seems crazy, and the free wifi in the reception is temperamental at best. But overall, I would be happy to return or recommend! More
Just returned from Hotel Flora. Second time this year and fifth visit in all. My husband and I travelled as a couple. It was excellent as usual. Food fantastic. The staff were all very helpful and always cheerful. Sorrento was also as beautiful as it always is. Lots of Halloween activity going on and the Christmas lights were going up. We went to Napoli one day. That was lovely. We took the local train, close to Grand Flora. We walked in Naples and went to look at Christmas Alley where the Christmas Nativities are for sale and many other Christmas goods. Beautiful day out. We returned because we wanted to visit Paestum. This is worth a visit. Magnificient Temples. We hired a car from England in advance. Lovely weeks holiday. I never want to leave Italy.More
