Grand Hotel Flora  

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.

Not so grand

I was with a group which stayed one night here. I was surprised that there was no ramp leading to the lobby, only a staircase. Guests had to drag their luggage up the stairs. What about the disabled or the elderly? The lobby looked grand, and it stopped there. Our room was small and the furnishings,TV, tiles and sockets, etc were awfully dated. What irked me most was a big party of young people (students) staying on the same floor. They made such a ruckus in the middle of the night, shouting and bellowing. It didn't help that the walls were thin and one could hear them yakking away. Breakfast was also a disappointment. No eggs! Having said all that, one redeeming factor is the hotel is in a good location, a short walk to the town centre where the food & entertainment hub is.More

Better than expected

What a pleasant surprise, after reading some reviews we were very pessimistic of our stay, how wrong we were. Yes there is a petrol station opposite the hotel , what is the problem with that? Walking in to reception we were pleasantly surprised clean,fresh open, with a cheerful smiling chap on reception, who quickly dispatched us to our room. Our room was on the street side over looking the hills and the petrol station. Some former guests seem to find that a problem. Why? This is a working city and they need to put them somewhere. Hubby found the street a great source of entertainment, watching locals and tourists going about their day. Crazy drivers, stupid pedestrians, mental scooter drivers. It was a good thing we didn't spend long in our room as he was becoming addicted to people watching. At night once the door was closed we slept fitfully in lovely clean beds, in a clean room, with great hot water every day in the bathroom. The swimming pool was clean but as we were there before the "season" started the facility's were not in full swing however, it was peaceful and relaxing. The restaurant staff were so enthusiastic and cheerful, it would be difficult to single anyone out for extra praise as they were all brilliant. the food was amazing and if you where still hungry after the evening meal you must be in the Olympic team for eating. Breakfast has a good selection of coffee tea fruit juice yogurt cereal cake fruit meat cheese etc etc etc. The bar was staffed by the famous Michelle, if she runs her home the same as the bar then she is a domestic goddess, Nothing phased her, there must have been at least 30 people one evening and everyone was waited on by Michelle quickly and professionally with a lovely smile and a winning way about her.We only met the lovely "Anna" twice who also seemed to have the bar under control, and if you want the alternative recipe for Cannelloni she'd be happy to tell you "yummy".Last but not least our Thomson rep RORY he was brilliant..he would go the extra mile for any of his guests unfortunately he has been head hunted and gone off to Venice, Thomson say and Rory goes...the Flora's loss is another's gain. The location of the Flora is perfect. not to close to the center but not far out. The staff are an asset to this hotel. Mostly all in all our stay here was amazing for the price as Italy is renowned for being expensive. Personally we would recommend this hotel as we said for the price paid its hard to fault it...should we return to Sorrento this is the hotel we will stay at. So glad Thomson have this hotel on their books otherwise we would have missed outMore

Perfect!

From start to finish and everything in between, this holiday was perfect. Hotel clean & tidy. Food excellent. Staff incredibly helpful in every way. We are a young couple so this was the perfect combination of being able to relax by the pool, retreat to our room without worry of noise from outside (our balcony faced the back of the hotel towards Vesuvius!) and not being too far from tasso square, st agnello square and the local bars and restaurants. The trips offered with Thomson were excellent - we did ischia thermal spas, and amalfi drive, and everything was spot on with no mistakes. Would definitely return! Only issue, which was easily overlooked as everything else was exceptional - the walls are quite thin. While none of our neighbours bothered us as all we heard was a conversation and the odd cough or sneeze, we were mindful that they may hear us so were a bit conscious of talking past a certain time at night.More

Fantastic!!

We took our mother in law on holiday , due to ill health she wanted to go back to Italy. We had 2 children 3 & 7 and 4 adults. Sorrento isn't really a child friendly holiday but as we were taking mum on holiday we made the best we could to please everyone! the pool was spotless and so so clean! The girls played happily. The staff were welcoming, friendly and went that extra mile every time! So a big Thankyou to everyone!! The food was amazing! Breakfast had something for everyone! Tea was 4 courses! Salad bar, and then a set menu with something for everyone. No child's menu but they were more than happy to make us chips and tomato pasta for the girls, full waiter service very very impressed! Full and satisfied every night and a real taste of Italy! Views from the restaurant were beautiful and we watched the sunset between courses on the balcony! About a 15 min walk to the main square but stopped for a drink along the way and visited the lemon groves. The price for this hotel was fantastic the food alone paid for itself! Very very impressed and if we ever came back would 100% stay here again and recommend a friend. If you look for faults you will find them! Ignore the negative comments and have fun! We booked our trips with tempio travel next to the train station. Defo work going to compare prices !!! We saved our selfs a lot of money and got trips that ticked our boxes. The money we saved on booking these trips we out towards a private boat hire!!! Very expensive but a really good experience and we got to go to Capri and posistanio and a tour around the island, so this ticked more boxes for us than a crammed boat trip! Defo worth a trip to speak to them they are right next to the train station speak to a guy called Rik and he will point you in the right direction xxx Massive thankyou to all the staff we met xxxxx More

A fine hotel well placed for touring the area by public transport

Whatever shortcomings you might find with the hotel (and they are small and few), the positive, enthusiastic and friendly staff will more than make up for them. Rosemary, the wonderful lady who serviced our landing, helped me arrange a call from the tourist doctor to treat my wife's poorly eye. She was also a source of information. Maria- Laura on reception helped with translating messages from the tourist doctor and confirming information about the Circumvesuviana train and the red bus to Amalfi. The hotel is 300m from the Piazza Lauro, the railway station and area the red busses leave from. It is about 1000m from the main Tasso Square, shopping area and walks and lift down to the marina. Make sure you visit the square on a Friday or weekend evening because they close the road to cars and all the locals come out to promenade. The Circumvesuviana is the best way to see Pompeii and Heculaneum and the Herculaneum Express that leaves from the station provides a quick transfer to Vesuvius. Return fares are around 5 euros and travel time is 30 to 45 minutes to these sites. Sites cost 11 euros entry but you can save a little by buying a multi-entry ticket. The concessions for over 65's has recently been stopped. Austerity! Other trips to Naples and it's museums, Volcano Sulfatara and the temples at Paestum are also possible by rail. Positano and Amalfi are reached by the red busses. A 12 hour ticket costs 8 euros. Capri is a ferry ride away. It costs nearly 40 euros. Once on the island take the funicular to Anacapri, the bus to Marina Piccola and the chairlift or go for a 20 euro open top taxi ride. Capri is a designer shopping paradise. There is plenty to do using this fine hotel as a base and I haven't even mentioned shopping for leather goods or browsing the fine marquetry made locally. An excellent place to enjoy a 7 or 10 day break in spring before it gets too hot. We travelled with Thompson. Overall a really well organised package.More
