We just returned from Sorrento this past weekend and had the pleasure of staying a the Hilton Sorrento. This hotel doesn't seem to quite fit in with the charm of Sorrento as it is VERY modern looking both outside and in but it was really a nice place to stay. The room was huge compared to other rooms you would find in Europe and had quite a nice bathroom. There was an odd 'rug' on the floor (many rooms in Italy do not have carpeting so I guess this was their best attempt) that felt like bad sisel but it was fine . Kind sized bed and additional twin bed which came in handy for placing clothes on etc. There was no real place to store things other than clothes- just 4 drawers in the 'closet' which had no doors on it. We got to wake up to looking at the things we hung up but it was fine. There were no drawers by the bed side but again, that other bed came in handy for storing stuff. We had a balcony over looking Sorrento, the pool and Mt. Vesuvius- really quite amazing. The bathroom was very clean- odd half shower door made of glass (again, modern) but we got use to it. And o' the room was BRIGHT orange.
We are Hilton gold crown members which can sometimes entitle you to a special execuitive room and access to the execuitive suite. They did not have one of these rooms available but told us they would keep checking. We never heard back and we were pretty okay with our room so we let it go. Would have been nice but what is one to do...we had heard that others had gotten it. In exchange for that, they did give us two bottles of complimentary water each day and a fruit bowl one day. The water came in very handy...at 2-3 euros per bottle in town, you come to appreicate any you get for free.
The included breakfast was great. Ate in a large BRIGHT green room....not sure what is up with the colors but it didn't affect how nice the place was.
The hotel is up the hill but those of you in shape will enjoy the walk up the hill from Sorrento. We did it many times.
The staff was quite helpfu with connections for Rome and Naples and any other areas too.
Indoor swimming pool was gorgeous.
