“Wonderful Hotel, Wonderful Location, Good Old Fashioned customer service”
Reviewed July 3, 2014

The staff in this hotel are brilliant - they can't do enough for you, really good old fashioned service. The hotel itself is well located in the heart of Sorrento but near to the beach area also and in a quiet cul-de-sac so no through traffic. We could sit on our balcony and watch the wedding parties coming down from the local church for photographs. The rooms are a reasonable size - no kettle but that is the case with most hotels in Italy and yes the hairdryer in the room is rubbish (I took my own but you are not meant to due to health and safety). The rooms are aire conditioned and spotless as is the rest of the hotel, there is some noise when people are arriving and departing and on one occassion I heard next doors alarm clock but it was not a problem. The breakfast is lovely, but I think it is the staff that make this hotel great as they really were very friendly and helpful. Didn't use the spa or gym so can't comment on that, there is a lift down to the beach area, 3 Euros if you want to sunbathe on the beach but free to walk round and you can walk to the harbour area, if you want to sunbathe also you have to get loungers etc which can all get a bit expensive, we did this once but then used the hotel pool (which is huge) the rest of the time, loads of loungers around the pool.

Room Tip: we had a balcony and sea view and I would say its worth paying the extra - after all sorrento is fam...

was surprised by excellent location of the hotel - close to the historical center and the beach.
has direct access to Lionelly's beach (lift from the lobby).
I would recommend the hotel - extremely positive friendly and polite staff!
Rooms are very clean. we stayed there (3 of us) in room 103 - originally thought that access to swimming pool can cause issue being noisy but that was a mistake!
Room was very convinient and cosy, very calm place for family vacation.
by the way extremely good breadfast for Italy - not just sandwiches and yogurts, we had good continental breakfast.
Would recommend the stay over there!

Room Tip: 103 - calm place with excellent view to swimming pool and a hill

I have just got back from staying at the Hotel Continental in Sorrento for a 10 day holiday with my husband.
It was a lovely hotel and the staff were so friendly, helpful and nothing was too much trouble for them.
The breakfasts were lovely, lots of choice, the only thing that wasn't nice was the juices. They were really watery but apart from that food was lovely.
The internet was very intermittent but poolside lovely and clean. Had lunch in the hotel once on our last day and food was lovely and tasty.
would recommend this hotel, position is really good, on top of everything and we loved sitting in the front of the hotel as it overlooked the beautiful sea.
Will definitely be going back to the hotel Continental in the future

Room Tip: we had a room on the fourth floor and it overlooked the pool. The rooms at the front are the best b...

An excellent hotel in the quieter part of Sorrento but still within easy waking distance of the main shopping and eating areas. Rooms were well appointed and scrupulously clean (and kept so by a discreet maid service). The reception and concierge staff were without exception friendly, approachable and helpful. The breakfast available in the hotel was varied and extensive and staffed by a team of very efficient and polite waiters. I have no hesitation in recommending this hotel.

The hotel sits behind a beautiful park and has a wonderful sea view. The staff was very helpful and there was no language barrier here at all. The breakfasts that were served were excellent, and they have a very clean well kept pool and patio area. A good value and very nice stay.
