The Hotel Continental combines a setting in the heart of Sorrento with panoramic views.
The Hotel Continental is set just behind the cliff edge in the centre of Sorrento, overlooking the Bay of Naples and, in the distance, the brooding slopes of Mount Vesuvius.
The hotel really makes the most of the views. In the lobby – where marble floors and chandeliers create a classically Italian feel – floor-to-ceiling windows open up views of Mount Vesuvius.

Amazing Staff, Great Views and in the Heart of Sorrento
We stayed there last week for 6 nights and as we pulled up to the hotel, the view from outside the hotel overlooking Mount Vesuvius was the first plus for this hotel. The staff at Hotel Continental from the outset were so accommodating and could not do enough for us but it was Franceso and Antonio that stole the show at breakfast every morning. They were charming and funny and were a great added bonus to the wonderful breakfast buffet that was on offer at the hotel. Prosecco, sorbet, cereals, as much pastries imaginable, hot food, cold meats..the list goes on. The staff always had a smile on their face and it made the trip so much more enjoyable. We stayed in a room with an internal room and unless you plan on spending your holiday in your room, this room is perfect. you have the rooftop terrace if you wanna sit and enjoy the view of Vesuvius or walk two seconds outside the hotel for the same! You are within walking distance of everything with this hotel - the Marina, the Train and Bus Station, wonderful restaurants and Gelato Shops. The staff also attended to our room twice everyday which was great for fresh towels. You might be a bit concerned from reading some of the reviews on this site but I was absolutely blown away by this hotel and the long serving staff that are employed there :)More

Stay for our wedding
Myself and my partner got married in Sorrento at the beginning of September and stayed at this hotel for a week with both our parents and some of our friends. Hotel is spotless, breakfast is very good plenty of choice, pool area is nice and well maintained. The location is perfect, close to everything and was in walking distance of the cloisters where we got married which was the main reason we booked this hotel. The roof top restaurant has amazing views, we ate there one night and the food was lovely and staff very pleasant. The only negatives I have about this hotel was that prior to our visit to Sorrento I booked and confirmed everything via email. We also came out at visited in May and confirmed everything again, but when we arrived at the hotel for our stay I then had to reconfirm everything again and was also asked to see the emails again, to which I had to find them on my phone, which was slightly frustrating as I had been planning this for over 12 months along with the wedding. I also asked if it was possible for me and my partner to have a sea view room, to which I was told that they were fully booked so this would not be possible. I thought this was fair enough as I didn't expect any upgrade but just wanted to ask the question. However when we checked in, my parents were given a sea view room and us the bride and groom were given an external view? my parents happily swapped with us and it was no issue at all, I just didn't understand why my parents were given the sea view option instead of us. However apart from this overall the hotel is lovely and would visit again but would just be wary of pre booking anything prior to arrival.More
Ideal location, huge breakfast selection, great staff
We stayed here for the last few nights of our honeymoon. Perhaps I had unrealistic expectations of getting a room upgrade due to our honeymoon, but we still had a decent room, just no sea view. Although our fitted sheet was ripped and there were a few stains on the curtains, the hotel was an enjoyable stay. It was almost like a Wes Anderson hotel and had some Shining vibes but it was absolutely beautiful! It also had an old-school feel. I was astounded but the cornucopia of breakfast selections, including sorbet! Giovanni, the bartender, made great recommendations of things to do around Sorrento and was a great conversationalist. Unfortunately, our last night we planned a romantic rooftop dinner. The hotel informed us it was too windy so we would have to eat on the ground level. We hesitated as first, but decided to try the food and we are so glad we did! Superb service, Lorenzo is very knowledgeable about wine and the serving staff was accommodating. The food.delectable and beautiful! Our travel agent booked us here, but I would stay again. Hot tubs in Europe are all lukewarm tubs, which I found to be disappointing, but that was universal.More
This Hotel is very centrally located in the town of Sorrento; in between the Marina and the town center with all the shops and restaurants. I am glad we stayed in Sorrento in comparison to Positano or Capri. We has easy access to both by booking private day trips instead of being in the middle of the craziness in those towns. Hotel was a nice one, with a nice lobby, great breakfast, and good friendly service. The only thing was its very close to a school and the kids are a bit noisy in the morning and they will wake you up, which we didn't mind because we wanted to get a full days worth, however, this could be somewhat of an issue for people who want to sleep in. In all fairness, I am sure you can ask for a room in a different part of the hotel not adjacent to the school and, if you visit during the summer, this won't be an issue. The blankets and the sheet can get an improvement as well. But, All n all we had a great stay!! More
