“Great hotel, service and food”
Reviewed 20 March 2014 via mobile

We booked this hotel through Hotwire and really enjoyed our stay. We had booked a standard room but were upgraded to sea view on arrival. The finishes to the hotel are beautiful, the front desk staff were really warm and friendly, and the food in the restaurant was delicious! The wifi worked great. Only cons were thin walls - we were next to a crying baby and it was quite loud but the reception staff moved us into another room no problem, and the furniture could be upgraded but then it would probably be 5 stars. We would definitely stay here again.

Stayed March 2014, travelled as a couple

We had a great stay at Hotel Aminta. The hotel was very clean and spacious. We had a great view and the staff was GREAT. If you are using a GPS please be careful as we had some adventures with ours. When you get to the fork with all the hotel names take the road on the left vs right. Look for the hotel name on the list.
The breakfast was amazing. There was eggs, bacon, sausages, cheese, ham, croissants, and many other breads and sweets! The waiter is constantly going around to each table to refill coffee and tea. The hotel also has a shuttle and FREE parking. Love our stay! :)

This hotel has everything anyone could want, comfort, exceptionally friendly and helpful staff, good food and plenty of it not to mention the breath taking views,( no extra charges at meal times to sit by the large picture windows over looking the magnificent vista, as some hotels nearby do!) The hotel provides a well maintained pool as well as sun loungers positioned along a deck area making swimming in the sea easily accessible. We would highly recommend anyone considering an Italian holiday next year to consider not only lovely Sorrento, with its wealth of things to do, see and buy, designer shops to die for but this good and excellently located hotel. Lastly, use the local trains, Sorrento station within walking distance from hotel, stations close by to sites at Pompeii and Herculaneum: it is easy, straight forward, very reasonably priced and great fun. We will be back!

This is one the the best hotels I have ever stayed at. It was very clean and bright. The staff were friendly and the view was amazing. The food in the restaurant was delicious and plentiful. The hotel is about 5 minutes from Piazza Tasso and has a shuttle bus which runs you to within walking distance from the piazza. I really enjoyed my stay here and would recommend it to all types of visitors to Sorrento.

If you are looking for a hotel with a beautiful view Aminta is perfect! I was there for 5 days and every morning was a blessing enjoying my coffee on the terrace. It was heaven on earth. The breakfast is excellent, the staff is nice and helpful, the room was big and comfortable. The hotel is situated above Sorrento and to get in the city there is a shuttle bus that comes in front of the hotel and it is free. I will definitely chose Aminta if I go to Sorrento again.

Pros : The views and common areas are lovely. The staff are very helpful and friendly.
Cons: The rooms are very dated and old.In desperate need of an update. No wardrobes - just poles to hang your clothes. The safe was just big enough to fit passports. The shower was beyond pathetic and there were ants in the room. Noise levels not conjusive to any kind of a good nights sleep.
Location was fantastic for the views but that also meant driving up and down a slopy hill every day and night to get into Sorrento - although they did offer an hourly shuttle service.Parking at the hotel can only be described as treacherous!! Dread to think what its like in the summer!

Room Tip: Avoid the second floor - although the rooms were nicer, we moved to the 4th to get some sleep.

An extremely nice hotel in its common parts, certainly meriting its 4-star status. But beware if you book with Riviera Travel, as we did. We were given rooms on the fourth floor which were cramped under the eves, with hardly room to open our suitcases; the beds were hard, the single wardrobe half-height (you had to bend down to access it), and to look out of the window you had to go up a short flight of stairs. The room was like a poor B & B, certainly not the 4-star one we had paid for. Our friends' room was next door and identical. At our request the hotel moved us to good rooms on the 1st floor, but only after two nights out of seven. Not good enough, Riviera!

Room Tip: Keep away from the 4th floor!
