Hotel was great, staff were very friendly & helpful. Great position for shopping & restaurants in the evening, close to the port. Food was superb, swimming pool on the roof was great & not too busy with great views of the surrounding area.
Only negative was the position of our room, on the first floor with some noise from the street below.

We spent 4 days at the Grand Hotel La Favorita at the end of our honeymoon and, frankly, it couldn't have ended better. The setting is exceptional. Convenient enough for any of the top class eateries in town but with a fantastic view, to boot.

The rooms are HUGE and spotless and beautifull decorated with stunning painted tiles and ceilings, lovely fluffy robes and a fully stocked minibar. The bed is just about big enough to justify its own post code.

The breakfast buffet is pretty vast and the food is always excellent. It was tough not to fill up at breakfast time knowing how many wonderful restaurants there were close by.

The rooftop pool is also quite something to behold. More than enough sun loungers to go around, an excellent bar close by and a view of Mt Vesuvius.

The concierge is wonderfully helpful and attentive - even when you're checking out at 4am.

We really can't recommend this hotel highly enough. It is truly fantastic and we are already making plans to go back as soon as we can.

We stayed at Hotel La Favorita in June 2012. From the moment we arrived, we were gretted by very helpful and friendly staff and any questions we had, all answered promptly, including confirming future flights (to Venice). We will definitely stay at La Favorita when we next visit.

Room Tip: We had a suite, triple share (couple with 14 year old son)

Hesitant to stay at any hotel for 18 nights that did not have a beach, I could not have been more thrilled with my experience! From the moment of arrival, you know that you will be taken care of. Extremely friendly and accommodating staff; a general manager who's door is literally always open (with convenient access to the guests) means that the needs of the guests are of utmost importance! Wonderful rooftop pool with it's adjacent Terrace Restaurant affords a view of the Bay of Sorrento where, lo and behold, one can enjoy a lunch or dinner and not be forced to pay what are normally outrageous hotel prices.

Privately owned by a local Sorrento family who also own the historic and wonderful local restaurant O'Parrucchiano. Rooms are beautifully decorated, cool and comfortable, many with large private balconies; spacious bathrooms with all the amenities and more! As with most European hotels, if you prefer to use facecloths, best to bring your own. Great closet space with shelf storage and in room safe. It is no wonder that the property attracts so many of the smaller destination weddings. Like many hotels in the area, the hotel does host some small tour groups but those guests hardly have the time to really enjoy this gem of a hotel.

If you prefer the beach, you are a short walk to the public gardens where a lift operates down to the many private beach areas. 1 euro one way or 1.80 euro round trip. You can also use the lift to access the port area of Marina Piccola where the hydrofoils and ferries leave for Capri, Naples, Positano and Ischia.

Fabulous central location makes it perfect if you enjoy shopping, or wish to indulge in a gelato (or two), sample some of the many local restaurants o9r engage in the "art of the passigiata" or stroll the small streets as the locals do.

But it is hard not to want to enjoy breakfast at a table outside by perfectly manicured gardens or enjoy a drink in either the exquisitely decorated bar or on the rooftop later in the evening. A great way to end any day, enjoying music (not every night), refreshing breezes and gaze at the stars wondering how lucky you are to be staying there!

We stayed at Hotel La Favorita for our honeymoon and were treated excellent from when we arrived. Our cases were taken to our room, which was very nice and big, it had a lovely tiled floor, huge double bed, mini bar and was lovely and light. On the ceiling there was a lovely piece of artwork which made it apprear that you could see the sky, very nice.

On arriving in our room there was a bottle of prosecco waiting for us which we shared on the balcony. Our room was at the side of the hotel and we had a great view.

We also received a free drink token each to use at one of the bars within the hotel. We were also provided with a pass to get free towels each day the pool. The pool was wonderful, as you will see from the pictures, it is on the roof and has a wonderful view of Vesuvius and the Bay of Naples. We had something to eat at the pool bar when we arrived. we both ordered a pizza, expecting a warmed up frozen type, but we got a gorgeous home made pizza and were waited on too. The price of the food and drinks were reasonable.

The staff in the hotel were very attentive and very polite, making you feel very welcome.

Breakfast was great and there was a huge choice each day.

The decor in all if the hotel is delightful and the lobby bar was very nice. My husband and I had our free drink there and also had a cocktail each, very nice and not a bad price.

The hotel is in a great location, 5 minutes from Tasso Square and about 10minutes to Marina Grande.

I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the side of the hotel opposite the Imperial Hotel

Let me first of all say that The Grand Hotel La Favorita is an outstanding hotel, and warrants it's 4 star general rating. The whole of the staff, from management to cleaners are extremely attentive and very helpful. There was no time during our two week stay that they did not fall over backward to make our holiday one to remember.
Having said that we did have a problem on our first night, the room 304 had an extremely bad damp water smell that would not go away. The next morning the hotel were reluctant for several hours to move us to a more pleasant smelling room. It was not until our holiday rep got involved that the hotel finally found that they could move us.
One other negative in the hotel was the wi-fi connection.. the only way I can describe this is appalling, speed, method of connecting, and constantly dropping out. It was nearly ok if using with mobile phone, but laptop or tablet, were so affected and almost unusable. The wi-fi system did not seem to have the bandwidth to cope with the number of users. When down loading short emails it was like watching paint drying.
In fairness to the hotel they did say they would try to improve the system later in the year. Lets see eh... let me know. :-)
Right... now on to the food and the dinning area, this can be described as an extremely pleasant area, with an array of very tasty and well prepared food, again ALL the staff were so helpful and attentive, nothing was too much trouble to serve you, congratulations and thanks to them all.
The room service and maids were also extremely good too, even turned down the beds in the evenings, while we were out.
The pool area on the roof was also well looked after, pleasant bar and food staff. The pool attendant was always on hand for setting up your sunbed and umbrella, also keeping the pool area clean and safe, plus giving towels out when needed.
What more can I say... other than I can really recommend this as a fantastic hotel.
Well done to all the staff at The Grand Hotel La Favorita ....Sorrento Italy.

Room Tip: Don't ask for room 304...!!!
