Charming hotel central to everything. We were escorted to our large room overlooking the pool complete with a welcome basket of fruit and chilled champagne. The staff was friendly and attentive. Buffet breakfast was fresh and plentiful. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: When booking i would ask for a room near the pool.

What was not to like? The location of the Antiche Mura was perfect. A short walk to the hydrofoil for Capri, the bustling tourist area at the end of the street, the train to anywhere just a few minutes by taxi and close enough to the pick-up places for the tour buses.

What really put this hotel above the rest (six hotels in six Italian cities) was their attention to our needs. Beyond that perfect location I would add a most friendly and supportive staff, the BEST morning breakfast we tasted, and comfortable rooms. The Antiche Mura went the extra yard on the morning we had to check out early - before breakfast. I thanked the waitstaff on the day before and said we would not be joining them for breakfast tomorrow. The lady told us to mention this at the front desk as the kitchen would put something together for our trip.

When we checked out at 6 AM, we were handed TWO large bags as prepared by the chef. Needless to say we did not go hungry that morning or the rest of that day.

It's this little extra detail that makes a great hotel rise above the others.

As far as location goes it is perfect, right in the centre of Sorrento. We were 2 minutes walk from the main Piazza Tasso with lots of bars, restaurants and the old Centro Storico. We were minutes from the train station and the bus station and a short walk away from the Marina from where you catch the ferry to Capri. The only minus point is that you don't have a view of the Bay of Naples, with Vesuvius, but you get that view everywhere else you go and we didn't spend that much time at the hotel so this suited us. I prefered being central than further away to get that view.

The room itself was fine, nothing special but clean (maids came in twice a day and changed your towels every time) and perfectly adequate. We had plenty of storage space for all the clothes I took with me!! The bed was comfortable, we had a TV in the room with a fair number of channels. The room had complimentary bedroom slippers, toiletries and a hairdryer. The hairdryer wasn't very powerful so it took a while to dry your hair. If you have really thick hair bring your own drier.

We stayed on a bed and breakfast basis - I don't like half board as I like to eat out at the many local restaurants. The breakfast was lovely - cereal, yoghurts, fruit juices, tea and coffee, breads and rolls, cheeses, hams, fruit salad made with fresh fruit and tinned, lots of fresh fruit too. There was cooked breakfast too but we never had that. There was a huge array of freshly made pastries and biscuits that were delicious. You could have breakfast inside or outside - we did both depending on the weather. The breakfast area outside is lovely, overlooking the gorge nearby and from here you can walk to the pool area.

The hotel had a beautiful garden and the pool was in the garden amongst the lemon and orange trees. The pool itself wasn't huge so don't expect to be able to swim lengths but it wasn't tiny either. Lots of sun loungers and a bar out by the pool. Towels for the pool are provided but they are rather thin - didn't matter to us and it saved having to take towels with you.

The staff was wonderful, all very helpful, couldn't do enough for you. They all spoke English but were quite happy to let me try to speak to them in Italian. I had a couple of lovely cuppucini by the pool - proper Italian coffee, so good.

Very impressed with this hotel. Spacious bar and lounge area and nicely furnished. Nice change from standard chain hotels. Our room was a good size with bath and separate shower. The pool area with bar/cafe was lovely. Breakfast was good, all tastes catered for and meals at the poolside were good too. Hotel is family owned and all spoke good English as did the helpful and excellent staff who gave good advice about eating out (evening meal not provided in hotel).
The hotel is quiet but very near the town centre within very easy walking distance of numerous restaurants, cafes, shops and railway station, ideal as one of our party has difficulty in walking any distance.

Central location, in the heart of Sorrento near the shops and restaurants. The garden/pool area is a lovely place to relax in the sun under the lemon trees, as is the breakfast-room both inside and the outside terrace. Breakfast gives you a wide range of choices both hot and cold with more cakes and biscuits than I have ever seen! The hotel staff are very friendly and could not be more helpful, we had an early return flight and were able to settled the bill the night before without any problem. On two occasions our room was cleaned when we were at breakfast and towel replaced each evening, the maids very friendly and efficient. A slight downside our room was not ready when we arrived, admittedly we arrived at the hotel around midday but we were told we had to wait for 10/15 minutes which turned into nearly an hour but well worth the wait as the room was lovely, sunny balcony and spotlessly clean with complementary fruit and wine. We had a lovely break in the warm sun of Sorrento, thank you hotel Antiche Mura.

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet room with bath/tub if required.

Absolutely loved this hotel. From the moment we arrived we were greeted with warm professionalism. From the Bellman to the breakfast wait staff we were impressed with the level of service received. The lemon grove is absolutely beautiful. The location is outstanding. The breakfast was delicious with much to choose from. I most certainly recommend this hotel for all travelers. P.S. My husband is a hotel General Manager on the Island of Maui in Hawaii ... We were both impressed with the hotel and staff.

Room Tip: Book a suite located near the pool ...
