We stayed there for 3 nights in the last week of October 2013. The staff was extremely courteous and helpful at the time of check in. We were given a complimentary upgrade to a mini suite which was large and had a bottle of champagne waiting for us. The room and bathroom was extremely well maintained. The breakfast spread was good and the pool garden had lemon and orange trees.

The location is very central and just of the main piazza. The meeting points for our tours were within walking distance. Would definitely go back and highly recommend it. Thanks to the management for making our holiday memorable.

We stayed three nights at this hotel in October and just couldn't have been happier with the choice. There's no sea view, but this hotel is located right in the heart of Sorrento and has a beautiful pool/garden and a staff that never stops trying to make your stay pleasant. One of the best breakfast buffets we experienced in three weeks of touring Italy, the breakfast staff keeps the area fully stocked and your coffee pot full. The desk staff is able to handle any request and can direct you towards any adventure in the area. They have cars/drivers available to help you with tours of the Amalfi Coast, transfers to the train station or airport or anything else you might need. The rooms were very nice (we had a balcony) as were the bathrooms. Plenty of storage, free WiFi, a perfect place to relax.

We stayed three nights in hotel Antiche Mura and all the hotel staff was extremely friendly. The staff and the the central location just of piazza Tasso makes this hotel so good. The hotel has a car park. The breakfast was very good with more than enough choice. The highlight was squeezing your fresh orange juice and excellent espresso and the excellent cappuchino. If you like you can even get a glass of sparkling wine for breakfast. The only thing I was missing was a selection of fresh thin sliced Italian meat. They should change their choice of salami though

The suite room on the second floor was quiet and big enough for our family of five.

We had a great stay in hotel Antiche Mura and would certainly recommend this hotel.

Hotel Antiche Mura (Ancient walls) knows how to look after guests; a six night stay at this hotel in a junior suite was, without doubt, thoroughly enjoyable. All of the staff, (reception, breakfast room, bar, snack bar), without exception, played their part in making this stay memorable. Also, the location was perfect, a couple of minutes walk to busy Piazza Tasso (main square), yet peace and quiet in the hotel grounds; the pool area was very relaxing.
They do charge €10 per day for car parking, but space in Sorrento is at a premium, especially in the hotel garage, so it was understandable for secure parking. Breakfast was already in the cost of the room, so each morning you had a wide range of foods to choose from - cereals, yogurt, bread (various), meats/cheeses, eggs, bacon, pastries etc - more than enough for everyone. The same standard of service was on offer in the snack bar and bar area of an afternoon and evening respectively - nothing too much trouble, always welcoming and friendly.
The hotel's location makes it an excellent choice as a base for trips - Pompeii, Amalfi coast, Capri - either by car or by public transport (which is good), and to drive from Naples airport was just about one hour (traffic permitting). In the evening you can just wander down to Piazza Tasso, or the many side streets, to choose from an endless number of restaurants, as the hotel does not provide this facility (could be viewed as a negative, but you do get out and see Sorrento much more). They do offer a selection of trips from the hotel to all of the sights, but doing it yourself was no great hassle!
Sorrento was great, Hotel Antiche Mura was a big part in making it so; highly recommended.

My family and I have recently returned from a wonderful Italian vacation which started out in Sorrento at the Hotel Antiche Mura. We booked 6 rooms with a four night stay as we were there to celebrate my daughter's wedding. Of course the wedding was incredible ... but as usual the hotel staff was perfect. This was our second visit to the Antiche Mura and we would not think of staying anywhere else while in Sorrento. The location is perfect ... the staff is exceptional and the breakfast buffet is the best way to start your days in Sorrento.

You will not find a better group of employees who respectfully do their best to accommodate your needs.

First of all, the location of this hotel is perfect. Just off the main square, 2 minute walk, somehow very quiet and peaceful despite the busy square only a few hundred metres away. Breakfast is delicious, the staff picked the oranges off the poolside trees in the morning and brought them into the breakfast room where you could squeeze your own juice, best orange juice I've ever had. Lots of lovely little Italian cakes as well as the norm.

Room was nice, your average European design but very comfortable with lots of little finishing touches. Maid service excellent, the room was spotless. Staff were probably the most helpful I've ever experienced. Due to a flight delay we arrived at 1am, night concierge more than happy to show us all the way to our room and offered to carry our luggage for us. Very glad to give directions and tips whenever and whoever was on the front desk.

Pool is a bit cold but pleasant enough, poolside bar a little expensive but served very tasty snacks and cold drinks were international brands unlike the local stuff you find usually. All in all, couldn't fault it.

Room Tip: Rooms can be quite far from main entrance, ask for one close if you don't want a couple of minut...

I go through a lot of research before selecting a hotel, so I was pretty sure this was a really nice hotel and good choice. I wasn't wrong. Very accommodating staff, beautiful rooms, excellent breakfast, gardens and even a pool and bar outside! Our room on the third floor was in the corner, so we had a balcony overlooking the front and the ancient city walls. The room was huge, with majolica tile floor. We were greeted with a bottle of chilled Asti and fruit. You eat your breakfast outdoors in a beautiful garden next to the old walls...great way to start the day. The hotel is on a quiet end of the street just off the main square, so you walk 100 yards and are in the middle of everything, but at night, it's a pedestrian zone and very quiet. There is a local grocer just across the street, who is happy (willing, maybe?) to make a sandwich and sell you a bottle of wine for a fraction of the cost in a restaurant - if you just need to chill in your room one night. Next time in Sorrento, we are definitely staying at the Antiche Mura again! (means "ancient walls" in Italian)

Room Tip: 3rd floor corner room with a balcony
