Perfect hotel - location, staff and cleanliness! Located one minutes walk from Sorrento square yet very relaxing with a roof top pool and sunbeds. Breakfast of meats, pastries, scrambled egg, etc. to set you up for the day. Towels provided for sun beds and a good selection of snacks available for lunch on the roof top. Staff very helpful especially since one of our party ended up in a wheelchair after breaking his ankle whilst on holiday. Rooms adequate size although we were too late to get a balcony overlooking the street. Tips - be careful walking down to the marina as the 200 steps are well worn! A short walk of the main streets finds you cafes with drinks at half the price. Visit the icecream shop at the far end of the main street (near the hospital) for fantastic icecream. Visit Capri and the Amalfi Coast - absolutely spectacular scenery. We'll definately be coming back.

Having recently stayed at the Hotel Plaza, i had to post a review as soon as i could!

We loved the hotel. It is in a great location, just a minutes walk to the main Piazza Tasso, which is where everything is happening in Sorrento. We had the best room in the hotel, on the top floor, with a lovely balcony. The rooms are simply furnished and are light and cool. It is great to come in after a trip or after a few hours sunbathing on the Sky Bar to a lovely air conditioned room. The bathroom is great, nice bath, rain shower etc. It is also very quiet at night, which was vital! The room and the whole hotel is immaculately clean, and real credit must go to the team responsible for this.

The Sky Bar on the top of the hotel is a great place to relax and sunbathe. The pool though is more of a place just to cool off. It is impossible to swim in it. However,that said, the views of Vesuvius and Sorrento are pretty fantastic from it. The lunch menu in the Sky Bar is excellent. We always tended to go out at lunchtime, but we wish we hadnt as the lunch in the Sky Bar was far better then anything outside.

Where do i start with the breakfast! There was everything there that you could possibly want in a breakfast buffet and it took pride of place in the centre of the room. However, and this is my only complaint of the hotel, as someone who loves coffee, the coffee at breakfast is awful! We got up every morning and went for coffee at Fauno Bar, in the Piazza Tasso before breakfast.

Finally,i must mention the incredible staff. A big thankyou to Alessandro, Guiseppe,Maria and Diego. A real credit to the hotel.

Room Tip: I would say go for a room near the top of the hotel,with a front balcony.

I agree with all the other reviews posted here. First and foremost the location is superb. A five minute walk to the train station where you can take the Cirumvesuviana railway to a host of different places. The hotel is just a hundred yards from the main square, although when you are in the hotel, the hustle and bustle of the town seems so far away. The air conditioning keeps the hotel really nice and cool and hits you as soon as you walk through the entrance in the height of summer. The staff are fantastic and very professional. Loved Herculaneum - Pompeii too busy and just too big!

We stayed at the Plaza for a week to celebrate our Silver Wedding, having read many excellent reports and we were not disappointed. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. The room was a good size with a balcony overlooking the main street which was lovely. The roof top terrace and pool were a delight and a great place to spend the last hour of sunshine late afternoon. Breakfast was top class and set us up nicely for the day. Finally the location is ideal and 2 minute walk to the main street - Corso Italia. We loved it, would recommend to friends and will be back.

Really good location just off of Piazzo Tasso Our balcony looked over a busy road & was great for people watching. However, with the double glazing shut we didn't hear any noise. Agree with all the comments about the breakfast, especially the pastries; they are lovely. All of the staff were helpful and spoke very good English. Best feature was the Sky Bar, which had a fantastic view of Vesuvius & the Bay of Naples. It was really hot when we were staying at the hotel but the bar has a mist feature which helps cool you down. There are lots of seats & sun loungers in the bar area, plus a few near the pool. The pool is fairly small but is big enough to cool down in and have a swim. Top, top hotel.

We spent 10 nights at the lovely Hotel Plaza in August 2011 and couldn't have asked for a better hotel. It was chic and cool but the friendly staff chatted when we were in the mood and politely smiled when we were too tired to talk! Cinzia was as helpful as promised from other reviews, and Raffaele booked an excursion for us by phoning directly which would have been an impossible task with my very limited Italian. At check-in we were given a smile, a map and just enough information to take in without feeling over-loaded. Helpful advice was given when asked and when we checked out we were invited to store our luggage, before we even had to ask.

The hotel was always welcoming - don't under-estimate the importance of great air conditioning after a hot day in Sorrento!

Breakfast was always a highlight of our day, and when Giuseppe smiles and offers you a cappuccino you can't say no! The staff were very efficient, and we liked the little pot 'for a neat table'. There was a big selection of food which the chef occasionally brought from the kitchen personally. Chocolate cake at breakfast is surely a holiday essential!

The Skybar was well run and quiet, with a water mist spray to cool things down, tables with umbrellas when we wanted a snack from the menu, and a comfortable sofa seating area to read and keep an eye on Mount Vesuvius. Drinks were super cold and always supplied with snacks (thanks Marco, Diego, Alesandro and Maria). We had a quick swim in the pool but sunbathing wasn't a big part of our holiday. Towels, showers and a bathroom were available. The pool area always seemed busy but calm.

We spent some nice post-meal evenings in the downstairs bar, enjoying snacks with drinks and listening to the piano player every couple of nights, watching the world go by. There was a slection of novels to flick through too!

The room was quiet and very clean, with heavy curtains to keep the early morning sunshine out. Free wi-fi was supplied and there was free internet-access in the business centre downstairs. The maids were smiley and efficient, the air conditioning very good, and a hairdryer provided. Although there was no iron in the room, Cinzia explained we could use the hotel's laundry room iron with just a few mintues' notice.

When we return to Sorrento, we will definitely be staying here again, we didn't walk past a single hotel with a more welcoming front, or a better location. Thank you to all the staff, we *heart* Sorrento.
