“Good base for exploring this area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2012 via mobile

I stayed here with my husband and another couple for 3 days. Excellent hotel for money, friendly helpful staff. Rooms not huge but clean and have everything you need. It is a bit of a walk from main area but good to walk off all the wonderful food and gelato!! Hidden gem is the roof terrace. Lovely way to end an evening with drinks up there.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2012

Stayed 3 nights as part of a tour group. The room had plenty of space for my wife, daughter and myself. The room was clean and comfortable. The breakfast was great. No hot food, but an incredible assortment of pastries. The pool was great and shaded in the late afternoon, only drawback was that it closes at 7 PM. DO NOT miss the rooftop garden, a great place for a drink following a day of sightseeing. The hotel is situated along the main road and is about a 15 min walk to the main square. The road is somewhat noisy, but we sleep with earplugs anyway because of snoring. As this was part of a tour I'm not sure how the daily/weekly rates compare to other hotels,but would recommend staying here. For a great homemade meal simply cross the street, it's not much to look at but the food is outstanding.

We stayed 3 nights as part of a tour group. It's on the main road (lots of traffic and noise) and is a good 10-15 minute walk, where the sidewalk is lacking in places, to the real 'Central' of Sorrento.

That being said the rooms are quaint and the staff are helpful. I'd say it's fine for 3 nights but for a weeks vacation the walking to town gets stale as it's all through traffic. Downtown Sorrento is pedestrianized and much nicer.

Don't miss the nutella cake for breakfast - it's sublime.

A bit further from the station with bags than we expected. A good walk to town but acceptable. Helpful & friendly staff. Good breakfast. Interesting views of busy street and traffic out of window. Witnessed a prang - crazy driving! Enjoyable stay.

I stayed here as part of an eleven day tour of Italy. I had a single room and it was quite tiny. The bathroom was barely closet sized and I could not shave my legs in the shower without banging my head off the shower door. However, the room was comfortable and I had a great view of the sea. The restaurant was good for breakfast and the front desk staff were attentive and pleasant, except for the man who was there the morning of my departure who seemed very annoyed to have to deal with me at 6am. I didn't use the pool but it looked nice. The hotel was at least 15 minutes from the town center and farther from the port. It will be a 20 euro taxi fare to the port. While Hotel Central is a perfectly fine hotel, I would not stay there again if going to sorrento. There are better located hotels that are still a good value.

This hotel is very close to most things or about a 15 minute at most to the furthest things. The furthest being the port and half way is shopping and the square. It has a great pool and fitness center. The rooms are very clean and the staff is very helpful. They have a great 24 hour menu. They have a convient snack bar at the pool also. All very reasonably priced. Bring your own towel to the pool or rent one for e3. It stinks the pool closes early at 7pm. Now the one downside....ants!!! No one told us there were ants! My son sat his plate of pizza on the desk and went to potty. When he returned that quickly it was an infested and then we could get them out. With such a complete room service menu you would think that someone would have mentioned that.

Stayed one night mid-summer and this place was great. Reservations were easy, many English speaking staff and super clean rooms with nice sized bathrooms for European location. Very nice pool and gym access at site also. Paid parking available one block away which was very secure. We will stay again when we return to Sorrento! Good for couples or family.
