The combination of location, helpful staff and clean rooms makes this an ideal base for a stay in Sorrento. It is an easy 2 minute stroll into the main square of Sorrento and from there you can explore the side streets. Most of the shops are very similar-limoncello, scarves and lemon soap- but still interesting. Plenty of cafes where you can sit and people watch. It is only a short walk to the station and bus stop for visits to Pompei, Amalfi and Naples, however I would not recommend Naples.
We were greeted by name when we arrived and all the reception staff were friendly and helpful. We were given a map on arrival and a useful timetable of train, bus and ferry times - not always accurate but we did visit at the end of the season so touristy things were slowing down. When the water in our bathroom failed to appear two members of staff responded immediately, solved the problem and were very apologetic.
The weather was very kind to us and we were able to eat breakfast in the pretty, well maintained garden. One of my best memories is eating fruit straight from the trees in the garden. The breakfast was a good selection buffet style and the waiters were friendly and welcoming.
The room was very clean and comfortable. If I am very picky I would like to see 3 changes/ additions 1. A bedside clock. 2. hand lotion in the bathroom. 3. The shower door opening the other way! It was difficult to turn the shower on and avoid the water before it had reached a reasonable temperature. But that is me being ultra picky!

On our way to see the Mill of Sorrento, we were looking for a place to stay, and eventually we ended up in Antiche Mura, and it was simply perfect.
The young gentleman at the reception was really nice in giving us all the information we needed, he let us take a look at the rooms and the rates we got were more than convenient, so we decided to stay.
The rooms are quite spacious with a big comfortable bed with comfy mattress and pillows, the bathroom was a not too big, but splitting hairs here.
Everything was tastefully decorated, and spotless clean, and the hotel area was a delight to walk around, a beautiful garden full of lemons and tangerine (even found one: that had lemons and tangerines in the same tree, what's with that?) the pool area, and the breakfast area. And the hotel is in a perfect location, right on top of the Sorrento mill, the very place we were looking for, and right around the corner to the main square full of cafes, pubs and restaurants
The breakfast was lovely, the service was great, reception and all the staff was more than helpful.
Southern hospitality at its best. we loved it.

We just want to echo all the great reviews of this hotel. In the past three years, we have stayed at fifteen hotels all over Italy, most of them four star hotels. The Antiche Mura is our favorite. Great location, beautiful grounds, nice rooms, friendly staff, and the best breakfast buffet in a beautiful setting. The rooms had amenities we hadn't found in other hotels, such as a 115 volt outlet and a choice of three different showers. And we loved the beautiful tile floors in our room and in the breakfast room.
We were in Sorrento the first week of November. The weather was fine and we didn't encounter hordes of tourists.

We had such a wonderful time at Hotel Antiche Mura, located conveniently just one block from Piazza Tasso. The staff were courteous and the room was exquisite. We upgraded to a suite and were not disappointed. Lemon and and trees in the hotel garden and a spectacular view of the mountainside added to the ambiance and this amazing hotel.

My husband and I recently stayed at this wonderful hotel in November. Our welcome was so warm & inviting and we were upgraded to a junior suite, which was wonderful. The breakfast that was included was stellar. Both waiters were very engaging and friendly. The food was delicious. The weather was too chilly to enjoy the pool, which looked beautiful. The gardens were also lovely. The location of this hotel was great. It was a very easy walk from the train station and also to all of the restaurants and stores. We also walked to the ferry stations (took a boat to Capri) and the bus stations (took a bus to Positano.)
Unfortunately, we had to cut our vacation short because of a family emergency and the hotel was very sympathetic to our needs. They easily could have charged us for an additional two evening but graciously, released us from the obligation. Honestly, we will definitely come back again!!
Thank you to the wonderful staff!!

I agree with the other reviews here. A really fine hotel centrally located but quiet. The breakfast was the best we had in Italy. At least there were different types of eggs along with all of the beautiful carbs.
The staff was very helpful. I felt ill with a bad sore throat and the desk had a doctor who spoke English in my room in 25 minutes. The doc prescribed antibiotics and something else and within a day I felt so much better.

I have one suggestion. We paid extra for the second level room. Basically the window was a little bigger. I don't think it was worth it.
The bigger window wasn't so big and really how much time do you spend looking out a window? I would suggest either going cheaper or going more expensive--if you want to pay for a balcony you can sit on.

We had booked a room at this hotel because we were not able to reserve a room at another hotel on the water. We were not disappointed and regretted we were only here for one night. Our two week trip to Italy, including Florence, Venice, Rome, and Cortona was ending in Sorrento and this was our favorite hotel. The hotel staff was very welcoming and helpful, the location was wonderful, the room was absolutely charming, and we had a beautiful view of the pool and gardens. Breakfast was delicious and one cannot beat fresh squeezed orange juice. I would like to go back to Sorrento and this would be my choice of hotel.
