We stayed at Antiche Mura for 5 blissful days. From our first day where we arrived and had lunch by the pool to the last where they arranged for a car to take us to Naples every day here was a pleasure. Our rooms were large with very big bathrooms. They had clotheslines in the tub for hand washing and a laundry service available if you needed to send your clothes out. Our room even got a new flat screen tv while we were there! There is free wireless internet in the lobby and by the pool.The breakfast had many selections including a lot of pastry and cake. There were choices of cereal, toast, hot items, yogurt, and fruit. It was served in the lovely garden room. We spent many afternoons by the pool, enjoying the mountain view and the lemon trees. Mario was the bartender by the pool and he was awesome! He gave us suggestions on things to see and restaurants to try and became a valued resource. Tonio and Michele were also great servers and very friendly. We got advice from them too and learned a little of what life is like for people who actually live in the area. We would delibrately head back to the hotel for drinks at night so we could chat with them. I can't thank Luigi at the desk enough. He was able to book tours for us and answer all of our questions even though I must have been driving him crazy with our constantly changing plans. Every single person working at the hotel gave a smile and hello when they saw you, even if they were just passing in the hall and you didn't know them. It was a fantastic place to stay and we felt very at home there.

We really enjoyed our 2 night stay at the Antiche Mura Hotel. Sorrento is incredibly convenient to all the areas near the Amalfi Coast, including Positano, Ravello, Pompeii, Capri, etc. The rooms are very nice, and the hotel has a wonderful breakfast (including squeeze your own fresh orange juice) served in an elegant dining area with many outside tables. There is even a swimming pool in a beautiful outdoor courtyard surrounded by lemon trees. Sorrento is a charming town and you are sure to love it.

This was the 3rd stop on a mother-daughter trip to London, Paris, Sorrento, and Rome. We decided to splurge a bit on this hotel for some R&R given the absolutely beautiful pictures on the website. The exterior, lobby, pool (pretty, but small), and breakfast room were exactly what we expected. The assortment of pastries at breakfast can't be beat. The best breakfasts of our trip. We were a bit surprised that lunch was only served pool-side which wasn't very nice on the rainy day we were hoping to eat there. The food was fine--pizza, sandwiches, salads. Nice bar and bartender in lobby--very cold lemoncello! Free wi-fi in lobby and by pool. Convenient location, but we were surprised that reception staff tried to steer us away from restaurants in the Piazza. We actually had the best dinner of our stay in one (Ristorante 'O Parrucchiano). Our experience there was much better than in the restaurant recommended by the hotel. We were disappointed with our room; to compare it to some American hotels, I'd say it was like a Super 8 room inside of an Embassy Suites hotel. The hotel staff suggested/arranged a private driver to take us on a tour of the Amalfi coast--definitely the way to do it. We thought it would be extremely expensive, but we found it comparable to the large tours and we were able to customize it and avoid car sickness on those crazy curves!

This idyllic family run hotel situated in the heart of town - Piazza Tasso - takes some beating. Having stayed at numerous hotels in the area this ticks all the boxes for me. The central location is perfect with easy access by foot to the marina, train station etc. & laying by the pool around the lemon trees is so calm it's hard to believe the Sorrento 'rush hour' is around the corner!! Our room was lovely (clean towels etc everyday) with a superb bathroom - I do miss not having a sea view but there are so many good points to this hotel you just need to make the effort & sit at Marina Piccola, Foreigners Club etc to soak up that beautiful view! It is also one of the few hotels that offer a B&B service - the breakfasts are fabulous with very sociable hours 7-10.30a.m. All the staff are extremely friendly and helpful & will bend over backwards to assist with any queries etc. If I could name all personally I would but a special mention to Mario who works tirelessly 6 days a week bringing everyone drinks & food by the pool! I would not consider staying anywhere else in Sorrento and all being well will be back in 2010!

We spent an amazing time at the Antiche Mura Hotel in Sorrento. It is so wonderfully located steps from the main piazza in Sorrento, next to an ancient fortress wall. The rooms are large and lovely. The staff was so friendly, they even prepared a chilled bottle of Asti Spumanti for our anniversary! One of my favorite memories is the view of the blue sky and sunshine through the branches of the lemon trees surrounding the pool. The breakfast was phenomenal, we especially enjoyed eating outdoors near the flowers and the ancient wall. This is a great place to stay in Sorrento!

Stayed here for 11 nights and had a fantastic time. The rooms are quite large, the view from our room was lovely. Our room had no balcony to speak of but we sat in a very large patio area which was very secluded. It was lovely to sit and chill out. The bed is very comfortable but I would have liked a little more space to hang our clothes. This is only a minor complaint. The bathroom and shower were spotless and the towels were changed twice a day which was greatly appreciated. There is a small swimming pool which was fine for us but maybe a little small for a family with small children.
Breakfast was first class and the staff were so helpful and firendly. They gave great advice and help about the local area. Friendliest staff I have met on my travels.
The hotel is situated just off the main piazza which is great when returning after a night out. It is close to everything you would need, entertainment, restaurants, shops, bus, trains etc.
You can't go wrong if you chose this hotel.
