“Very Happy With the Antiche Mura”
Reviewed September 8, 2005

My husband and I stayed at the Antiche Mura for our honeymoon a few weeks ago. We really enjoyed our stay. We loved the location, the cleanliness, the high-tech nature of the rooms, the garden, the balcony, and the breakfasts! There were some noise issues, but it was really very minimal. When we come back to Sorrento, we will definitely stay at the Antiche again.

Unless you have a hearing problem i would not stay at this hotel. First they tried to put us in a room virtually inside the breakfeast room and on the way to the pool, so you could hear everybody else early in the morning, also had a dog outside our window, which you could literrally pat on the head, but started barking at 6:00am in the morning, non-stop for the rest of the day.
We had our room moved, but unfortunately only a couple of floors up from the original room, so could still hear the dog in the morning.
On top of this, any door closing on your floor causes a massive bang, so anybody coming in late or going out early is sure to get you up.
The walls must also be paper thin, and our bed headrest had somebody elses bathroom on the other side, so we had to listen to someone throwing up at 5am in the morning while trying to sleep, as well as other unpleasant visits to the lavatory in the middle of the night. We did try to move again, but they didnt have any other's available that were going to be any quieter, and Thomsons wouldnt move us to another hotel as they had promised.

I used this hotel from the reviews on this site, but it didnt feel like the hotel described by other reviews and certainly not worth 4/5 stars

The breakfeast was ok, pool bar ok, but limited food, and you need a prime spot for sunshine at the pool because of all the lemon and orange trees. Room was clean and good location, but not going back.

Start with positives - the hotel was clean and furnishings pleasant. The staff who worked in the breakfast room or by the pool were very helpful and the hotel was in a great location close to the centre. On the negative side the hotel lacked atmosphere. I would not have rated it as 4 star. It had no bar or focal point and the pool was very small with the towel on lounger syndrome in evidence to secure comfort in the sun. Our room was very small and overlooked a back alley. We asked to be moved and were offered one on the next floor with a better view of the alley ! The breakfast was good in that you could eat as much as you wanted but for those who like variety in hot breakfasts forget it. It is probably a good hotel if you are passing through and are only looking for a stop over but if you want to blend in or want that personal touch I would not recommend.

We have just returned from 8 nights at the Antiche Mura, and found it the ideal base for exploring the beautiful Sorrento Penninsula and surrounding areas. We caught the Curreri bus from outside the airport (75mins) which stopped in the main Piazza Tasso Square less than two minutes walk from the hotel. The hotel was immaculate, and the staff very pleasant throughout our stay. We had two rooms with french doors that opened onto the lemon grove and pool, very relaxing. The rooms were very spacious and nicely decorated, the bathrooms were of a good size with good showers. Breakfast was fine and served in a lovely setting, with a chioice of continental or cooked breakfast. Public transport was very efficient and easy to use, the train station is a five minute walk from the hotel, from there you can get to Pompeii, Herculaneum and Naples. ( To get to Vesuvius take the train to Pompeii and then walk down the slope to the tourist information in the square where the bus stops, and costs 8 euros return.) The bus along the Amalfi drive also stops outside Sorrento station and costs 2.40 euros return, definate value for money, buy tickets from a tabacchi and get there early to avoid the mayhem when the bus arrives! A great 4* hotel in a perfect location in Sorrento.

My wife and 3 young kids stayed at this hotel for the last week of August 2005.

The hotel proved to be a perfect choice for a number of reasons:

The location of the hotel in Sorrento is ideal. Just a couple of minutes walk from the train station, bus stops, taxi rank, main square, harbour and good restaurants;

The hotel is owned and run by a local family and they really make an effort to be friendly and helpful;

The public rooms, bedrooms and en-suite bathrooms were all very clean;

As other reviewers have said, the breakfast is wonderful and the lunch menu served by the pool is a unfussy selection of salads, pasta, fruit and icecream

We are likely to return to this hotel in the near future

The Hotel Antiche Mura provided for a fantastic stay in Sorrento. The rooms were clean, the breakfast was fantastic and the pool area was larger than at other Italian hotels I have been to. The staff was very helpful and accommodating. The hotel is a stones throw from all of the major sorrento attractions, and is an easy walk to the ferries and trains. The hotel also was happy to make reservations for us at local restaurants. Similar to another review, we had a three euro phone charge added to one of our bills, having never used the telephone, however unlike the other review they took it off the bill without question, though it was a bit odd. Overall a great stay, would certainly stay there again next time in Sorrento.
