Just got back from 10 days with my wife, we both really enjoyed Sorrento and enjoyed many aspects of the Hotel Admiral, however one or two things not quite so enjoyable!
The location is fantastic, the views from the bar area are a dream, I could sit for hours and enjoy a drink just appreciating where I was, beautiful! The view from our balcony almost matched the view from the bar (although many other guests were not so lucky) however with no fridge in the room enjoying a cold drink was not so easy, thus I kept finding myself back in the bar, that's business I guess, but be careful, they don't take cash per transaction, rather you have a tab for your stay which can mount up, ours ended up at near £400 and we ate out four nights out of ten, but Then again I was addicted to that view!
The food was average at best and the restaurant was a bit depressing in docoration style, shocking net curtains, hence why we ate out four times, I'd describe it as eating rather than a dining experience.
The staff however were on the whole very good, lots of smiles etc, no issues here from us!
Back to the Hotel itself, the rooms were clean and tidy, however far more 3 star than 4, and the plumbing was very, very noisy, when a neighbouring guest has a shower or flushes the toilet it sounds like they are in the same room as you which is not great when many are up from 6am! Cleaners also start very early on change over days, from 6am all you can here is the scrapping of moving furniture, so a good nights sleep is not guaranteed!
Would I return?... To Sorrento for sure, to the bar at the Hotel Admiral for certain, but I'd probably look around for other options first but I would not rule it out!
You really want a sea view with balcony!
