For me and my newly married wife, what else?
Quiet room, lovely moment of the year (no crowd!) and we could wander in the streets at ease, both there and in Capri.
That is a plus, if you want to see the island this is a nice starting point-on.
OK, it is not on it but this allows you also to do something else, and, believe, there is plenty!
Hotel can be easily reached ( has a parking! ask for price ), and basically most if not all they say on the web is fairly accurate; being Italian I am afraid to say that this is not always true...

We stayed at this Hotel for 5 nights. The Reception staff were extremely helpful and couldnt do enough for us. The breakfast was very good with lots of choice.The Junior Suite Room 209 was fantastic with its own large terrace. The Hotel is very quite and relaxing. I cannot recommend it highly enough and if ever we return to Sorrrento it will be our number 1 Hotel.

My husband and I stayed here for ten days in September and found the hotel and staff to be just as good as all the reviews we'd read about beforehand. Our room was very spacious with plenty of wardrobe and drawer space and a superb bathroom with a terrific shower. Beautiful tiled floors throughout and the floor tiles in the dining room are to die for as is the breakfast.It couldn't be in a more central position in Sorrento as it is minutes from the railway and bus stations.All the staff in the hotel are very charming and helpful.I would not hesitate to stay here again ,indeed I wouldn't look anywhere else.

We stayed at this hotel after traveling through Paris, Zurich, Florence and Rome and this was just as good as any of the other hotels despite the rather critical reviews I've seen for the same time period. Reception could not have been more helpful at any time of our stay. Our room was beautiful - clean, quiet, stunning tiled floor and large. Slippers were provided and a real surprise - a bucket of ice and a bottle of sparkling wine was waiting for us as a welcome from the management. The gardens are just lovely - small but with a really clean (although chilly) pool. We took lunch on arrival the first day and it was an excellent price and very good quality. There were no children (other than one adorable toddler) so the whole feel was of a grown up and relaxed vibe with people just relaxing and reading on the sunbeds.

Breakfast was efficient and with just about every item you could think of available. Personally, I'm not into big breakfasts so Italian cheese, parma ham and fresh fruit suited me fine. There's also a whole table laden with different sorts of cakes, biscuits and pastries so that was very hard to resist!

Sorrento is a really busy place and there are a lot of tourist restaurants so it's really hard to decide where to eat. Having filled up at breakfast we never wanted lunch - just a cool beer - and so pushed the boat out and ate at much more upmarket restaurants than perhaps the hotel would have recommended. I'd suggest that you do the research regarding restaurants and book up either before you leave, or on arrival, to avoid the tourist traps.

Also if you're planning to go to Amalfi there is only one bus route and the wait if you get there around 10.00am is nearly an hour and a half as there are so many people and the buses run every half an hour. So eat breakfast early and get to the bus stop by about 8.30am to be sure of a ride. The trip apparently takes about two hours due to the amount of traffic on the narrow - and only - road, but we never got there!

My wife and I stayed at this hotel Labor Day weekend and it was an excellent hotel and the location near the main Piazza was perfect. Also very close to the train station - walkable. But the best thing was the staff. They went out of their way to help us, answering any questions that we had. We asked for restaurant recommendations away from the tourist area. We were given several recommendations, and after checking them out on our Ipad (in-room wi-fi) on Trip Advisor we made reservations for our 3 nights in Sorrento. Each night was better than the other. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Sorrento - hotel, location and staff.

Just came back from a 5 night break in Sorrento. We checked into the Antiche Mura on Sunday 9th September. The first room offered, although a beautiful room with pretty murals on the wall, was a little noisey as there was a side road running outside. We were offered a superb alternative on the roof, with fantastic views across Sorrento. The internet did not work very well and when we mentioned this the staff (Luigi) could not be more helpful. He spent ages sorting it out and finally added a new router to the room. The staff at breakfast and on the desk were equally helpful and always cheerful. Location is perfect right in the centre of the town. There is no restaurant for evening meals but breakfast is served in the dining room and snacks available by the pool. I would definitely recommend a stay here!
