My wife and I stayed at the Grand Hotel La Favorita in Sorrento on August 20, 21, 22, 2012 for three nights. It was our fourth city in Italy (after Milan, Florence, and Rome) of a two week vacation there. This was on of our favorite hotels.
The hotel has a lot of charm and is in a great location. They are one block from the sea, beach, and the main drag in Sorrento.
The front desk staff in this hotel is great. They are all very friendly, speak good English, and go the extra distance for you. The lobby is very relaxing and inviting. The grounds are beautiful and are decked out with patios and lemon trees
Our room was great. It was very efficient, spacious, and had the most English speaking TV channels in all of Italy if you’re into that.
The morning buffet breakfast included in our room price was one of the best we had in Italy. It was a full buffet with scrambled eggs (which were delicious), ham, bacon, sausage, cheeses, fruits, breads, deserts, pastries, etc. Anything you could think of was there.
The rest of the hard working hotel staff was all friendly to English speaking people and spoke very good English.
The bar on the roof of the hotel is very nice and a good place to relax. The view of the sea is incredible.
This is one of the few hotels in Italy that offers you a clothes iron. It’s not in your room but if you go to the front desk they’ll give you an iron and take you to a private room with an ironing board that you can use.
One thing you should know. During the last few weeks of August a lot of Italians close up shop and go on vacation. A LOT of them come HERE. So it's crowded. However the merchants, and hotels handle the crowds very well so it's still a fun time. It's also extemely hot here. It gets to 95 or so mid day, but if you stay in the shade and by the sea breeze it's fine.
All in all we loved this hotel and Sorrento.
