Overall, we enjoyed our family stay at the Hotel Central. Rooms were comfortable, service was efficient and friendly, the whole place spotlessly clean, air conditioning was good. The highlight - the pool and sun deck were excellent. Breakfast is mainly pastries, which the kids enjoyed (the doughnuts were a particular hit). The significant downside (for us) - the 1km walk...

This is a tricky review to write, because--although we enjoyed our stay--there were some drawbacks. We chose this hotel for two reasons: 1) rest and relaxation and 2) access to Napoli, Herculaneum, Pompeii, etc. via the Circumvesuviana railway. As for the first point, please be aware that this hotel serves coach tours. In itself, this isn't an issue--except at mealtimes.... More

After touring southern Italy and Sicily my wife and I decided to go back to Sorrento to take a tour of Capri and spend a couple of days in Sorrento. We stayed at the Hotel Central and found the hotel to be very accommodating, from the room, to the staff and the meals served. The receptionist, Elizabetta and Fernando the... More

This is a very nice hotel at a bargain price. All superior rooms (like ours) are larger and have a balcony overlooking the busy Corso d'Italia. Quite noisy, but the balcony door is well soundproofed. The restaurant feels like group travel – with a fixed-price evening menu at a fixed time. Disregard and go downtown instead. Despite its name, Hotel... More

We stayed here with a tour group and found most aspects of the hotel more than adequate. Despite the fact there were two groups staying here, the hotel didn't feel crowded. The room was nice--clean, well-appointed. The bathroom was not large, but a decent size. The breakfasts had many typically European choices and were quite tasty. The location is good,... More

Best service out of all the hotels we stayed at in Rome. Location is good, short walk to the piazza but is located on the very busy main street. Rooms have balconies, but it's too noisy to enjoy them.. make sure you ask for a room on the back side, still no view but at least it's quiet.

On a recent visit to Sorrento we stayed in this hotel. Very nice lobby with comfortable rooms. Bathrooms were all fairly modern and updated. Rooms were clean and most were spacious enough. The breakfast was very good, with many choices of pastries and other foods. The hidden gem was the roof top garden area with views of the Bay of... More
