The Excelsior Vittoria is among the best hotels in South Italy. This was our 3rd visit. Splendid location on the main Sorrento's square (but totally quiet thanks to the huge park and garden surrounding the property), the hotel is perched on the cliff facing the sea and the Vesuvio.
Magnificent historic decor, which remains unchanged since the opening of the hotel in 1834, with superb pieces of antiques in all public rooms and bedrooms (but with an updated comfort: superb marble bathrooms, wifi, huge TV, i-pod station).
Top notch service from the concierge (fantastic for recommending visits and tips), the reception, the pool assistants, restaurants, room service, cleaning ladies are all very friendly and helpful.
Rooms facing the sea are gorgeous and extremely romantic (old charm) as well as those facing the park. Excellent facilities (fitness, spa, large pool).
A special mention for the breakfast : impressive and delicious buffet served in a magnificent frescoes room facing the sea, with a piano player in the morning (to extend the dream...). The bar terrace facing the Vesuvio is fantastic for romantic evening.
The Orangerie restaurant, near the pool and surrounded by limon trees, is very good for lunch and dinner as well (we did not try the starred michelin restaurant of the hotel).
A real "grand" old world hotel. The best play to stay in Sorrento and to visit the treasures of the region (Pompei, Ercolano, Amalfi, Ravello and Positano).
