We stayed at this hotel for one week in May 2008. Beautiful old style hotel with lovely traditional interiors and very helpful English speaking staff. The location was perfect with views across the Bay of Naples over to Vesuvius and Sorrento's marinas. The hotel has wonderful gardens with all kinds of quiet corners for you to sit in if you don't want to be around the pool. Our room was very clean and well maintained (bed was very hard). Hotel Ambasciatori was just the right distance from Sorrento's town centre for us - far enough away from the crowds but made for a really nice stroll into town.
So why not a five? Quite simply the dining room lets this hotel down. The staff worked extremely hard but clearly had too much to do with the hotel trying to cater for not only holidaying guests but there were two weddings and one christening for them to cope with over three days and the same staff seemed to be there for breakfast lunch and dinner. The service was therefore inconsistent and the food was at times extremely poor. Such a shame when everything else was so good.
We would recommend the hotel but that you eat out!
