“Italian charm!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2013

Hotel Antiche Mura (Ancient walls) knows how to look after guests; a six night stay at this hotel in a junior suite was, without doubt, thoroughly enjoyable. All of the staff, (reception, breakfast room, bar, snack bar), without exception, played their part in making this stay memorable. Also, the location was perfect, a couple of minutes walk to busy Piazza Tasso (main square), yet peace and quiet in the hotel grounds; the pool area was very relaxing.
They do charge €10 per day for car parking, but space in Sorrento is at a premium, especially in the hotel garage, so it was understandable for secure parking. Breakfast was already in the cost of the room, so each morning you had a wide range of foods to choose from - cereals, yogurt, bread (various), meats/cheeses, eggs, bacon, pastries etc - more than enough for everyone. The same standard of service was on offer in the snack bar and bar area of an afternoon and evening respectively - nothing too much trouble, always welcoming and friendly.
The hotel's location makes it an excellent choice as a base for trips - Pompeii, Amalfi coast, Capri - either by car or by public transport (which is good), and to drive from Naples airport was just about one hour (traffic permitting). In the evening you can just wander down to Piazza Tasso, or the many side streets, to choose from an endless number of restaurants, as the hotel does not provide this facility (could be viewed as a negative, but you do get out and see Sorrento much more). They do offer a selection of trips from the hotel to all of the sights, but doing it yourself was no great hassle!
Sorrento was great, Hotel Antiche Mura was a big part in making it so; highly recommended.

My family and I have recently returned from a wonderful Italian vacation which started out in Sorrento at the Hotel Antiche Mura. We booked 6 rooms with a four night stay as we were there to celebrate my daughter's wedding. Of course the wedding was incredible ... but as usual the hotel staff was perfect. This was our second visit to the Antiche Mura and we would not think of staying anywhere else while in Sorrento. The location is perfect ... the staff is exceptional and the breakfast buffet is the best way to start your days in Sorrento.

You will not find a better group of employees who respectfully do their best to accommodate your needs.

First of all, the location of this hotel is perfect. Just off the main square, 2 minute walk, somehow very quiet and peaceful despite the busy square only a few hundred metres away. Breakfast is delicious, the staff picked the oranges off the poolside trees in the morning and brought them into the breakfast room where you could squeeze your own juice, best orange juice I've ever had. Lots of lovely little Italian cakes as well as the norm.

Room was nice, your average European design but very comfortable with lots of little finishing touches. Maid service excellent, the room was spotless. Staff were probably the most helpful I've ever experienced. Due to a flight delay we arrived at 1am, night concierge more than happy to show us all the way to our room and offered to carry our luggage for us. Very glad to give directions and tips whenever and whoever was on the front desk.

Pool is a bit cold but pleasant enough, poolside bar a little expensive but served very tasty snacks and cold drinks were international brands unlike the local stuff you find usually. All in all, couldn't fault it.

Room Tip: Rooms can be quite far from main entrance, ask for one close if you don't want a couple of minut...

I go through a lot of research before selecting a hotel, so I was pretty sure this was a really nice hotel and good choice. I wasn't wrong. Very accommodating staff, beautiful rooms, excellent breakfast, gardens and even a pool and bar outside! Our room on the third floor was in the corner, so we had a balcony overlooking the front and the ancient city walls. The room was huge, with majolica tile floor. We were greeted with a bottle of chilled Asti and fruit. You eat your breakfast outdoors in a beautiful garden next to the old walls...great way to start the day. The hotel is on a quiet end of the street just off the main square, so you walk 100 yards and are in the middle of everything, but at night, it's a pedestrian zone and very quiet. There is a local grocer just across the street, who is happy (willing, maybe?) to make a sandwich and sell you a bottle of wine for a fraction of the cost in a restaurant - if you just need to chill in your room one night. Next time in Sorrento, we are definitely staying at the Antiche Mura again! (means "ancient walls" in Italian)

Room Tip: 3rd floor corner room with a balcony

We stayed at this hotel 18th to 25th October 2013, and were delighted with every aspect. The room was spotless, bed comfortable, bathroom was beautiful, but what impressed me most of all was a 13 amp power socket over the desk. How many hotels outside the UK would have this level of detail? The staff were all very helpful, bright and cheery, and the breakfast selection was great. The location is just off the main square, about a minutes walk. I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel.

My friend and I stayed at the Antiche Mura Hotel for 4 nights in June and had a wonderful time. The hotel is truly beautiful, set in lovely gardens and tranquil surroundings while at the same time being just a few steps from all of the shops and restaurants. Our room was not that large but was plenty for us and the bathroom was huge and very well equipped. We had a lovely view over the mountains and a welcome bottle of sparkling wine on arrival as it was my birthday. One of the best things about the hotel was the breakfast - both the wide range of food and drink and eating it in the lovely patio area with flowers and lizards everywhere. The pool was also great and we never had a problem getting a sunbed. Overall I wish I could return as soon as possible as it was so relaxing and a great base to explore everywhere.

From our first interaction over the internet, to the last moment of our stay, Hotel Antiche Mura and their excellent team made this our best experience in Sorrento ever. Our room was spotlessly cleaned--multiple times each day. The bathroom was bright--and the "rain" shower was luxurious. The elegant, bright breakfast room was literally filled with eggs, bacon, sausage, toasts, pastries, cakes, meats, cheeses, juices--even champagne. The pool was a bit cool, but we enjoyed the quiet escape from the bustling main piazza just 5 minute away from the Hotel. The hotel's location is ideal from arrival by train--just a 10 minute walk from the station, or just a 5 minute taxi ride from the main harbor. It is also an easy stroll into the old town. I think the best part of our stay was the staff. From the front desk team to the housekeeping staff and everyone in between, we always had positive, friendly interactions. We made a special friend in Antonino--he became our helper, advisor, and adopted family member. We give Antiche Mura 5 stars.

Room Tip: We stayed on the lowest floor with just a small, high window. Our friends stayed on an upper floor...
