We were booked into Hotel Central as part of our tour with Gate One...Initally I was concerned after reading some of the reviews on here...about the dangerous road etc, but now that I have returned, I can assure you that the road is typical of Sorrento...all the roads are narrow and busy, ..just cross at the crosswalks and you will...

My husband & I stayed here mid March while traveling with our tour group with Gate 1 travel. We were assigned Room 316 and it was a corner room with no balcony. The room was large, clean and comfortable. The bathroom had a small window that we kept open to get some fresh air. The windows in the bedroom faced... More

Mixed feelings about this hotel. Pros- great pool, large rooms, rooms with balconies, roof top deck with spectacular views of the Bay of Naples, Cons- long walk to the center of town and the hotel is located on a major road that serves as the areas highway. Crossing this road is dangerous.

I stayed only 1 night but had a good experience. The other reviewer was correct as my room was in 5th floor and I had to climb the last steps from 4th floor. I don't mind, though. I slept with curtain opened because my window and balcony opened to the full mountain view, just too good to skip. Room was... More

I stayed in a twin room for three nights at the end of a two-week tour of Italy. We were with a tour by Gate 1 Travel and there was another tour group there. We found this hotel comparatively nice. The room was the biggest we had in Italy; everything was clean and well-maintained. You do have to be careful... More

My husband and I enjoyed our 3 night stay at Hotel Central and found it a good base for all we wanted to do. It is within about 10-15 mins walking distance from the train station and, although we didn't need to use it, there is a bus shuttle service between hotel and station. The bedroom was very clean and... More

We stayed for three nights at the end of a twelve day tour of Italy. The staff accommodated our request for a room change (2nd floor corner room had a balcony but no view) on the second day to move to room 404. Nice! Breakfast buffet was just average, but we took our coffee to the rooftop terrace each morning... More

I found the hotel disappointing in many respects. As soon as I checked in I was handed a slip of paper telling me when I was leaving . I had booked a twin room - their concept of which was 2 single beds pushed together, so we had to move some furniture around. Although we were the only people checking... More

The hotel is not far from the center. The decor is outdated, either the lobby or the rooms. The shower it was difficult to control the temperature of the water. I was on the fifth floor but the elevator only went to the fourth floor and then had to go through narrow corridors and stairs, to carry the bags. The... More
