“We loved the Grand Hotel Aminta in Sorrento.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 November 2009

My husband and I and our friends spent a week at the Grand Hotel Aminta. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend it to everyone. Although we were a little concerned about the location, the view from our window more than compensated as well, the hotel has a regular bus service into town that we were able to match to our schedule and it became very easy to use. The breakfasts were fabulous and service in the dining room was excellent as were the meals we ate there. The best thing, though, for us, were the front desk staff, especially Leyla, who organized our stay and made sure we got to see all there was to see. A thumbs up experience.

Wonderfully renovated hotel with a breathtaking view over Sorrento, the Gulf of Naples and the Vesuvius. Large beautiful panorama terrasse with swimming pool and bar, spacious rooms with seaview, elegant restaurant with wonderful food, free of charge shuttle bus to town. All the staff were charming and helpful, we felt immediately at home. Excursions to Pompei, the Vesuvius, Capri, the Amalfitan coast, Naples etc, can be taken from the hotel. Our stay was absolutely wonderful and we will definitely be back. Thank you Aminta!

My first visit from the Caribbean (Barbados) to that side of the world. Accidentaly came across this hotel while surfing the internet. Was extremely taken back by the panoramic
view overlooking the Bay of Naples. This view is worth the stay.

The hotel staff are friendly very reliable (excellent service) nice, clean, cosy rooms, wonderful food, any drink you could ask for at one of the most beautiful bar, I have seen in my life!!. Definitely a good find on the net. I would recommend to anyone wanting to stay in this beautiful part of Italy.

First of all the good points.

As everyone has said the Grand Hotel Aminta offers spectacular views of the Bay of Naples.
The elegant reception and bar areas give a very good first impression.
The dining room overlooks Sorrento and the vista from its windows makes it a wonderful location for breakfast.
The friendly and helpful staff are always pleasant to deal with.
Bed linen is changed daily.

However, I was disappointed with the condition of our room (220) and also concerned about a long floor to ceiling window beside the bath in front of which we had to stand when taking a shower. I assumed for most of our stay this could be seen through from the inside only but I was wrong....

To begin with the walls on both sides of the bed had a number of black score marks on them which I felt did not give a good impression.
The long window in the bathroom had a deep marble ledge which was edged with a great deal of black mould until I cleaned it off myself. The plasterwork round this window was very black and needed a good clean with bleach.
The sanitary ware was kept clean - I certainly could not complain about that - but the inside of the toilet below the waterline was discoloured. Again, a soak in bleach for an hour was all that was necessary to alleviate this problem.
The bed was spotless - as I said the linen was changed every day - but it was fairly firm and not terribly comfortable. We did ask if softer matresses were available but they were not.
The marbled floor of the bedroom was kept reasonably clean but could have done with a little more thorough vacumming round the edges as there always seemed to be little bits of fluff etc which were not removed.
The days were warm and pleasant but the Sorrento nights in late October and early November could be chilly. There was no heating on in the hotel and we were told this would be the case until the middle of the the month. We were, however, given extra blankets.
The breakfasts were good although the fruit juice was reconstituted, not fresh. Overall the evening meals, I felt, could have been better and I know from the taste that packet soup was used on occasions. However, the service provided by the restaurant waiters was good and they were extremely nice people.
Back to the bathroom window. It offered marvellous views of Vesuvius, Naples and Sorrento. As I said I assumed it could be seen through from the inside only but on our last day as we travelled up the hill on the bus I glanced up and in the distance I could see through it to the glass panel in the door leading from the bathroom to the bedroom.
This means anyone standing up to get out of the bath or taking a shower must be visible from the road although only in the distance.

We had four nights at the hotel at the end of October for half term. The hotel is located at the top of the hill at the far end of Sorrento, we used the local path during the day to walk up to the hotel which is very steep but you can't walk up there at night and it is not possible to walk to the hotel from the main road. Therefore, you need to use the hotel bus which is very prompt according to the timetable or the local bus that you get at the train station. The room was huge and had fabulous views plus excellent views from the bar and terraces of the whole bay of Naples, Capri, Vesuvius and Sorrento. Breakfast is very nice, a cold buffet plus made to order hot food. Excellent value. We would recommend the hotel.

We visited the hotel in late October 2009. I would recommend this hotel. The views are amazing and the staff very attentive. The rooms needed a little updating but they were certainly clean and very comfortable.
