Stayed at Antiche Mura for 3 nights last week.

The first room we stayed in, room 107 was so noisy we did not get any sleep! The bar/lounge is beside you, the toilets were behind us and the kitchens and dining room were next door!

There were people in the lounge until 4am and because there are no doors between the rooms and the public areas, you hear everything. We finally drifted off to asleep and awoken again at 7.00am with the kitchen starting up for breakfast.

We asked to move rooms and were given a choice and took room 203. This rooms was much quieter.

Breakfast was ok, if you like cakes for breakfast you would love it!

The service from the staff was excellent. Everything we asked for, they helped with. They greeted us with a smile and ciao everytime they saw us.

However the hotel does have many flaws in my opinion.
The pool is overlooked by lots of apartments (not part of the hotel). Which would put me off in the summer.

I would not stay at this hotel again, however this was the best service i've received in a long time.

Beautiful hotel on the edge of the Piazza Tasso which is the main square in Sorrento. Great location, great hotel....we stayed in a comfort room, which was very roomy as well as lovely. We also had a balcony with a beautiful view of the hills. The staff were great, breakfast was yummy with lots on offer and I don't think I could say a bad word about this hotel. I loved it and would definitely stay again if heading back!

Stayed: January 2007

My wife and I stayed at this lovely hotel an enjoyed a lot.
Location is the best , just near the main piazza.
The service are nice and helpful, the rooms (euro 170) are small(as european standard) but cozy very clean as well are clean the bathroom (important) .
That was the best breakfast we had in our 17 days trip in Italy.
Sorrento is very nice , and we advise to stay there as base for Amafitana visiting. Food is delicious (try Z´Antonio Mare and Antiva Trattoria).
Will return for sure!

A very enjoyable hotel. Nicely decorated, though small, room with a nice large bathroom. Breakfast was excellent and offered many choices of hot food, pastries and fruit. The coffee was poor--tasted like instant and had cooled too much from sitting out in the individual serving pot. Ask instead for a cappuccino, which was freshly made and delicious.

The location was great, just steps from Piazza Tasso at the heart of town, yet very quiet. We enjoyed lounging in the lemon grove by the pool, but beware of hungry mosquitos!

Staff was uniformly pleasant and helpful. There was a train strike on the day we arrived. Unlike our hotel in Naples, this hotel had signs posted throughout the lobby and on the elevators so that travelers weren't caught unawares.

We just returned from a five night stay at the Antiche Mura Hotel in Sorrento. So glad that we stayed in Sorrento instead of Naples and used this as a base for Naples, Pompeii, Amalfi Coast, Capri, etc. The location of the hotel was great--down the street from Tasso Square which is in the center of town. We were walking distance to restaurants, shops, train, bus, and hydrofoil. Michele and his staff were wonderful and so helpful. The rooms are very nice and I would definitely recommend this hotel.

The rooms were the usual European size, but the location, views from the lemon groves, and breakfast were the best! Nice clean hotel.

My wife and I stayed at the Antiche Mura for three days in early November 2006. We found the hotel to be an excellent choice. Location is near the Tasso square, right in the center of town. Front desk very friendly and helpful, rooms above average, breakfast and service very good. We would recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to spend a few days in Sorrento, visiting the Amalfi coast, Naples, Capri, etc...
