Grand hotel Flora, Hotel Admiral or Hotel Conca Park

Hi,

Going to Sorrento with my husband first week of September and have narrowed it down to these hotels. Which would you recommend please? Which hotel is in a better location also?

Depends on what you mean by a better location. Do you want to be close to the centre of Sorrento, or better views?

Hi, yes we definitely want to be in the centre of Sorrento. It would be nice to have the views also.

Hotel Admiral has great views, but as it is nearer to water level, you have to walk uphill for about 15mins to get to Sorrento. At this late stage, you are highly unlikely to be able to get a room with a view at the Conca Park, but you could contact the hotel to ask. Most say that you should ask for a rear view at Grand Hotel Flora as the road is very noisy.

Hi

Yes, the Hotel Admiral on the Marina Grande has superb views and is in a very peaceful location right next to the famous, Delfino's restaurant and bathing platform. It can be a long walk to the bus/train station or the ferry point at the Marina Piccola. There are buses.

The other two hotels are on busy roads but an easy walk into central Sorrento, the ferry point and the bus/train station.

Decades ago, I stayed at the Conca Park - I think it's changed considerably these days, so I don't really know how it is now.

It was a conveniently easy walk to the centre. We had a sea view room and it had a lovely view, but those rooms which didn't have a sea view, faced directly on to a cliff and the light had to be turned on for most of the day. I believe that this often the case with hotels near a cliff/mountain/hill.

Sorrento is lovely.

I have stayed at the Flora and Conca Park, as said make sure you get a room at the back for sea views at Flora, my daughter loved the Admiral,, lovely in the evening, I would think at this late date you will not have a lot of choice,

Between the Flora and Conca Park I'd flip a coin or go with the better rate.

Flora is cheaper but I like the look of Conca more

Be sure to book a room at the front.
