We stayed at this beautiful and clean hotel for 5 nights in January 2009. We were greeted with a nice and friendly staff that were very helpful with both our luggage, and in recommanding good restaurants, provide maps etc. Overall this is the best hotel we have been to, the room were clean and the bathroom was big and with a relaxing and nice bathtub. The breakfast was lovely, with lots of homemade pastries, and the ever so lovely fresh-squeezed oranges (from the back garden?). A special thanks to the friendly girl in the reception that recommended the lovely restaurant Da Filippo. If you are ever going to this hotel, please be sure to book a visit to that lovely family restaurant for a special treat. Thanks a lot, and we really hope to go back to Antiche Mura some day!

The Hotel Antiche Mura was such a wonderful place to begin our honeymoon! Everything about our stay was incredibly memorable and positive.

Upon check-in, we met Luigi, the friendly front desk manager who referred to us by name throughout. Luigi informed us that we had been upgraded to the penthouse suite, and wished us a happy honeymoon.

The suite was charming, with an expansive patio overlooking the bay of Naples, and two deck chairs that were just for us. The hotel had also left a handwritten note congratulating us on our marriage, along with a bottle of champagne on ice. A nice touch.

The hotel's pool was relaxing and comfortable, with graceful lemon trees shading the large collection of deck chairs. The landscaping around the grounds was maintained immaculately, and provided some separation from the nearby streets.

Out of all the hotels we stayed in during our trip to Italy, Antiche Mura had the nicest breakfast - a wide arrangement of homemade pastries that changed every day, and delicious fresh fruit salad.

Antiche is just a two-minute walk from the center of Sorrento, and all the restaurants, shops and gelaterias it has to offer. The location was perfect for mixing multiple trips out for sightseeing with trips back to the hotel for naps.

This is a beautiful hotel, perfectly located with an outstanding staff. The staff is was very welcoming, anxious to please, friendly and courteous. The room we had was lovely with a small terrace over-looking the ruins and the old wall of Sorrento. Our room was spotless and the bathroom had a spa shower with beautiful Italian tiles. The breakfast in the morning was enough to let you miss lunch and opt for a delicious snack at Bar Rita--my favorite snack and pannini bar. Their pastry table selection was dazzling and the pastries delicious. The grounds were lovely and well cared for with lemon and orange trees in bloom in December. The location right off Piazza Tasso is great for evening strolling and easy access to the train and bus station. We have already made plans to return on our trip to Italy in the fall.

This is one of the most comfortable, pleasant and friendly hotels I have ever visited. Our rooms were delightful - though we did choose superior rooms, they were not the most expensive - the setting was beaufiful and extremely convenient and the staff could not have been more helpful and friendly. My two children (aged 10 and 8) also loved it. Rather oddly they didn't offer dinner in the hotel but there are so many excellent restaurants nearby that that was not a problem. I shall definitely go there again. A wonderful few days!

We stayed there for four nights and we had a wonderful experience. The hotel is very well appointed, very clean, the floors shine, the sheets are impeccable. Very good buffet breakfast.
We were greeted by Alessandro, who was very nice and helpful. Although, at this time of year you cannot enjoy the beach, we had a terrific and romantic time in Sorrento which we used as base to visit all the Costa Amalfitana (Capri, Amalfi, Positano...)
Alessandro also recommended a very good restaurant nearby: La Basilica, definitely worth a visit!
And don't forget to taste the tasteful lemoncello after dinner. Just perfect.

The hotel Antiche Mura is a small (46 rooms) privately run hotel. It has great individuality and personality with top class facilities. It has a high classed yet relaxed, friendly atmosphere, where you can relax before you step out into the hustle and bustle of the centre of Sorrento. The staff are incredibly friendly and their service to their guests is impeccable.

Within 40 yards of the main Tasso square in Sorrento, the hotel is an oasis of calm.There is the beautiful peaceful greenery of the garden around the pool area with its lemon trees for shade. You can be served a drink on your lounger from the bar in the garden, or eat lunch at a table in the garden. You feel close to an historic site with the walls of the 16th Century fortress and the site of the original Greek walls bordering the garden and seperating it from the spectacular ravine with the old mill far below.

The speciality at breakfast is the central table which is adorned with about 15 different types of cakes and biscuits which are baked by the chef on the premises and change from day to day. Of course you get all the usual ingredients of a good breakfast as well. The breakfast room is delightful and you get the opportunity to take breakfast outside in the garden.

The room I was in was immaculately decorated and spacious with all the facilities one would expect from a four star hotel.
