“Great Hotel, Great Staff”
Reviewed 21 October 2013

Lovely hotel with great views. Hotel very clean and ideal location, just outside the main square a perfect distance to walk off that evening meal. We upgraded to the Byron Suite, this is a larger room with double balcony, with views of the ocean and to the front of the gotel, this gave great views. The staff are all great and very very helpful, one even found me some wine I had been looking for for 3 years, from his local winestore and brought this in for me (Thanks Toninio :-) ) and all in all were very helpful to us. Breakfast was typical continental style, and again staff were very friendly and polite, Will definately return next year.

Room Tip: For best views, the higher the floor the better, even better with a Suite, but this also comes withe...

A perfect example of how a hotel should be.
Style and elegance.
Spotlessly clean, the only thing that could have been better was the weather, but I know you,ll do your best to have that sorted for the next time Franco!!!

Friendly helpful staff, terrific choice at breakfast (including soya milk for cereal) and generous sized rooms. Not cheap of course, but handy for everywhere in Sorrento. Get a sea view room if your budget allows.

Three of us stayed here in late August. The hotel is very luxurious although parts of the outside could do with a coat of paint. All the staff were very nice and extremely helpful. However, I must say a big thank you to Antonio, who every morning at breakfast made us all feel very welcome – chatting and joking about our favourite football teams, different foods and places to visit. The location of the hotel could not be better. Only a short walk from Piazza Tasso and Corsa Italia, where there are some very nice restaurants and shops. The hotel is very close to the Marinas too. I would definitely recommend this hotel!

We stayed at the Hotel Continental Oct 1 to 4th, 2013 and were on the 3rd floor overlooking a building that was being renovated. Luckily no work was going on so it was not a noisy construction zone. The hotel staff were accommodating but the hotel was not a 4 star accommodation. The furniture in the hotel was all ancient and worn, and the common areas were not inviting. Our room was spacious, but the upholstered chair was very stained. The bed was the worst I have ever slept in and the pillows were like rocks. I also had bites on my face when I woke one morning which greatly concerned me so I no longer used the pillows. We were stuck there with no options as Sorrento was sold out. I would recoommend this hotel to NO ONE. It was a very expensive 2 star hotel at best.

Room Tip: You may do better purchasing a room with a view...they may have more interest in pleasing people in...

We stayed at the Hotel Continental in mid-September. The hotel was beautiful and well maintained. We had a Byron suite, which had a wonderful balcony with French doors onto the balcony from two sides of the room. The view onto the bay of Naples and Vesuvius from the room was magical. The staff were very friendly, and the breakfast was one of the best we've ever enjoyed in Italy.

The hotel is very near the public elevator to go down to the marina, where there is sunbathing and where one can take boats to other areas of the Amalfi Coast or to Naples. It is also easy walking distance to the train station, to shopping, and to wonderful restaurants on the water.

On our first night, we noticed that there was a noisy manhole cover in the street in front of our room. A visit with reception resulted in a call to the city, and the manhole cover was fixed within a day. Amazing. We would gladly return here again.
