“Super concierge, fab breakfast, convenient location, lovely room”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2009

My wife and I had the pleasure of spending three nights here. Antiche Mura is located two blocks from the the train station, and one block - just far enough to be fairly quiet - from the exact middle of things in Sorrento. A superior concierge - Vincente - as well as two other desk colleagues made our stay extraordinary by recommending perfect places to visit and restaurants. Our Rick Steve's homework helped as well, but Vincente's suggestion of how to see the Amalfi coast (by boat, then a bus to Ravello and back to Sorrento) made a perfect - and economical - day trip. An enormous breakfast buffet (even with eggs, a rarity in Italy) was exceptional. The room had outdoor steps to the lemon-tree-filled courtyard and pool. Another superior helper, Antonio, managed to tend the bar and bring a snack to the pool and help bring our luggage to the room. All of the staff went the extra mile to make the stay one of the best ever in three decades of traveling together.

Antiche Mura Hotel was the perfect setting for the last portion of our trip along the Amalfi Coast. The hotel is close to the old city, restaurants, train station and shopping. The staff tries hard to please. The pool and gardens are beautiful and Michele made the best poolside drinks! Breakfast was A++. My husband and I had to leave at 4AM to catch our flight. The staff put together a "brown bag" breakfast to eat on the way to Naples Airport. We are more than pleased with our experience.

The hotel Antiche Mura is one of the most beautiful hotels in Sorrento. It is immaculate, as well as centrally located to the center of town - an easy 2 block walk! We used the Antiche Mura as our home base, and stayed here for 12 nights and absolutely loved it! The staff is like no other we have encountered in our travels. They were so friendly & knowledgable, offered excellent advice on seeing the sites, restaurants, and general information on the area and Italy. They were able to book airport pick up and drop off and many excursions directly from the hotel which was very convenient and cost effective. The pool was fabulous and the gardens were beautiful with a bar, excellent snack bar food with salads and sandwiches, (reasonable prices too!) gorgeous lemon trees all around and still secluded. The service was excellent as well. The staff became almost like family to us, so kind and gracious! All of them were wonderful, but I'd like to mention just a few extra special ones: Michele, Luigi, Antonino, Mario, Laura, Ellena, and Michelle. They enhanced our trip so much! The breakfast they serve there was like no other we have encountered in European hotels: fresh juices, eggs prepared any way you would like, pasteries, fruit, meat ,cheese, and wonderful coffee! Fabulous!! They easily earn the highest marks in all catagories - a definite cannot miss experience!!

My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights (20 april to 24 april 09) on the back of all the tripadvisor reviews and we certainly were not disappointed. The location of the Antiche Mura is perfect. It is very close to the train/bus stations and the town centre but at the end of a street which makes for a quiet stay. The other wonderful aspect of the hotel is the front desk staff and in particluar Luigi. Luigi was extremely helpful and had a wonderful knowledge of not only the basics (Capri/Pompeii) but more importantly to us the right places to eat and enjoy the wonderful cuisine of fresh Italian food.

The rooms were ok but a little on the small side as were the bathrooms but as we didn't spend much time in the hotel it wasn't a huge issue. Breakfast was again ok for us and they certainly had enough options to keep us happy. There is free Wi-Fi in the lobby but you can pay for it in your room.

We did day trips to Capri and Pompeii both of which I recommend highly. Capri is a lovely island and you should certainly go to AnaCapri (the old town) and take the cable car ride to the to of the hill as the views are amazing. Getting to Capri from Sorrento is very easy by HydroFoil and cheap. Pompeii is also very easy to get to by train and there is a lot to see there but worth the day trip.

We took a private transfer from Naples airport to the hotel at a cost of Euro 75 with SilverStar and to be honest although it was nice and relaxing it was also expensive and next time I would take the train which is right in the airport and a 5-7 min walk at the other end from Sorrento train station to the hotel.

Now for my restaurant recommendations:-
La Basilica - this is a nice restaurant which when we dined didn't have much atmosphere as we were one of only 4 couples. The food is very good and it's certainly on the more expensive end of the scale.
Donna Sofia - very nice restaurant and certainly worth a trip. They also provide free transfers. Again more on the expensive end of the scale but the food and decor is lovely.
Da Filippo - again free transfer. More mid range price wise but again very good food.
Gigio - very good food and much more reasonable price wise.

For the best pizza you must try Da Franco which is a 5-10 mins walk from the hotel. It's cheap and cheerful but very tasty.

Overall, Sorrento is a great town with lots to see and do and eat! We had a great time and I certainly would stay at Antiche Mura on our next visit.

This was my second time staying at the Hotel Antiche Mura. I really like the location, central to everything in Sorrento. The staff is very accommodating and the rooms very nice, modern, and clean. The breakfast is great with a lot of selections. Over all, it is a great hotel!

This hotel has the Best location in Sorrento & is walking distance to Everything! The hotel is nestelled among lemon &orange trees and has a relaxing atmosphere. The staff is VERYcourteous & will make arrangements for day trips or restaurant reservations & arrange low cost transportation too. I always stay at this hotel while visiting the Almalfi coast.

The Hotel Antiche Mura was an excellent choice. The staff was very helpful and accommodating to our needs. They helped us with every thing we desired. Also, our guide down the Amalfi Coast - Lentino Drive was excellent. Tommaso was very informative and a great driver down the twisting turns of the coastal road. I would highly recommend securing Tommaso's services if you plan to tour the towns on the Amalfi Coast.
