“Lovely Hotel in Sorrento”
Reviewed September 29, 2013

My husband and I stayed at the Hotel Plaza in Sorrento for two nights during our honeymoon trip to Italy. The location was ideal, steps away from the main square in Sorrento, and the hotel was beautiful. Extremely friendly staff and nice decor, we found our room to be very comfortable, with the exception of the shower. As much as I loved everything about this hotel, the shower was not that great. I am young and in decent shape and I found it difficult to get in and out of our shower as it is such a high tub. The small 1/4 of a door also did not make for a warm or comfortable experience. Aside from the shower, which was clearly minor because I'm still giving the hotel 5 stars, the hotel was wonderful. The rooftop pool was undoubtedly our favorite part. The view is beautiful and it was so nice to be able to relax by the pool and still soak in the glorious Sorrento views. I have stayed at other hotels in Sorrento on previous trips and this one takes the cake. Breakfast was also excellent and offered a wonderful variety of options. We were even welcomed with champagne and a small treat since it was our honeymoon which we thought was so nice. We loved the Hotel Plaza and will surely stay there again if we go back to Sorrento.

Dear guest,

we would like to thank you for choosing to stay at the Plaza hotel in Sorrento during such an important occasion for you to celebrate and for rewarding us with full five stars.

Among many features and services, you outlined the hotel’s ideal location, just a few steps from the main square, public transportation, cafés and restaurants. You seem to have also appreciated the great variety of options offered at breakfast and the rooftop pool/ Skybar area. The latter offers in fact a beautiful view overlooking the bay which you can enjoy while sipping a glass of wine or two.

Hoping to see you again in the near future, we greet you sincerely.

Before any other comments, just like to say that we would stay here again if/when we come back to Sorrento. Our room was not one with a view, but it was mostly quiet, even with the (effective) aircon running. Comfortable bed, excellent shower, loads of storage space and a good-sized safe. Brilliant location.

Many previous comments say how wonderful the breakfast buffet is. It does have some positive features, but (sorry to sound like a kill-joy) we just aren't too keen on piles of cakes or champagne at this time of day! The 'full English' is powdered scrambled egg (or a good imitation of it), frankfurters, baked beans of an unusual sort and bacon. The bacon was excellent, but the rest? Boiled eggs were also available but these were very hard-boiled. Muesli kept running out. Could all be easily improved - larger cereal containers, an egg-boiler...

The room, with the hard flooring, certainly looked clean on arrival, but wasn't. Only when we came to pack up and something I had left on the floor under one of the bedside units came out covered in dust! Sorry, but the cleaning needs to be checked and improved.

Just got back from our trip through Italy. We spent 3 wonderful nights at the Plaza Sorrento. The location is fantastic, so close to everything. Within walking distance to train, marina and all the great shopping and restaurants of Sorrento. The hotel is clean and modern with a fantastic rooftop pool, lounge and a great view. The breakfast was by far the best we had anywhere during our trip. Such a huge assortment of foods, including eggs, bacon, sausage, fruits, meats, cheeses, pastries, juices and so much more and so fabulously displayed. The staff was all very friendly and helpful. We would certainly stay here again.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The hotel had a modern feel to it. The rooms were clean and nicely furnished. Superb views from the rooftop. My one small criticism was that the rooftop shuts at 20.00 which didn't allow you take in the night view, otherwise everything else was perfect.

Most valued guest, we are so pleased that you thoroughly enjoyed your recent stay at our hotel. Indeed the Plaza Hotel stands out in town for being a fresh, modern, stylish hotel just off the main square. Our infinity pool on the roof top is certainly one of the hotel's most appreciated facilities. The view from there is fabulous and of course even the night view with Sorrento and the bay all lit up. However, the pool cannot stay opened until late at night for obvious safety reasons. A lifeguard in fact must be on duty to supervise access to the pool.
Looking forward to your next visit, we send our kind regards!

Just got back from getting married in Sorrento. We stayed a full week and also hosted a small reception on the roof top terrace at the Plaza (what a view). I don't think they could possibly have done more for us! Guests who weren't staying at the Plaza were treated with warmth and enthusiasm. The food for our reception was organised in advance by email so we were a little nervous about what we might get. No need, it surpassed all of our expectations right down to the wedding cake itself. The staff even helped with onward travel plans by dealing with Italian websites and agents. When one of our party became ill, it was the Plaza staff who organised a doctor to attend the hotel within the hour.
The rooms were bright, comfortable and immaculately clean with silent air conditioning - bliss. The central location made this a fantastic meeting point most evenings for the wedding party and the short walk to the Cloisters for our wedding. It was also ideally placed to explore historic sites of Pompeii & Herculaneum. What this small modern hotel lacks in glamour it more than makes up for in service and convenience. Thank you everyone at the Plaza

Excellent modern hotel with clean rooms, helpful friendly staff and superb breakfast. The main square in town is just a minute away and the boats and train just a 5 minute walk. Could not have asked for a better place to stay in Sorrento. They go out of there way to make your stay perfect.

First thing I considered when we wanted to visit the Amalfi Coast was, where can we stay as a headquarter place to drive around and get to know this amazing area. And after reading a ton of reviews and heard opinions, my conclusion was the right one: Sorrento!!!!!
For every night we stayed there the three managers gave us the best reference of where to eat, walk, visit and have fun. Amazing Grill with best meat in Italy, pizzas and trattorias, walking distance to the terraces to best views, and also right in the center of the action in the Piazza.
Once we visited Ravello, Amalfi, Positano, with all their charm and beauty, coming back to Sorrento felt like home, and so much activity in the evenings!!
Great Location, alive and fun. Will definitely return. Thank you for your hospitality!!
