Hotel Plaza is modern, friendly and located in the center of Sorrento. Room design is very modern with all conveniences, including free wi-fi. The morning breakfast buffet is complete with just about anything you could want. The make your own veggie juice arrangement is unique. Roof top area is great for sunny weather, unable to use pool due to the temperature while visiting. Desk staff is knowledgeable and helpful. Everyone friendly. High light of our trip.

Room Tip: ask for high rooms facing the sea, balcony seating was delightful.

I stayed for a week at the Hotel Plaza with my mother in a twin comfort room. Our room was spacious and had a balcony overlooking the street in front of the hotel - when you were on the balcony you could see the square and the bay in the distance. The first night we were there we left the balcony door open but were awakened at about 3am with people shouting from the street - it was a Saturday night - we didn't experience this any other nights, but slept with the door closed.

There are a lot of positive things to say about the Hotel Plaza and I think it is excellent value for the money. The rooms are modern, comfortable and kept spotlessly clean by the friendly staff. The front desk staff make you feel as if nothing is too much trouble and there was always a smile to welcome us back. The location is perfect - it is a minute to walk to the square, a few minutes to the train/bus station and convenient to walk anywhere else in Sorrento. The breakfast is good if a little heavy on the sweet cakes - there could be more variety for people who are staying longer than a couple of days. My mother and I both like beds on the softer side and ours were quite firm - we asked for and received numerous extra duvets to put on top of our mattresses and this helped a lot.

My mother and I went on the open top bus tour which we enjoyed. We also took the train to Pompeii for the day and took the bus to Positano. The absolute highlight for us was having a driver (Raffaele Monetti - monettitaxi17@libero it take us on a tour of the Amalfi Coast. Raffaele was pleasant, knowledgeable and a very good and safe driver. This is an experience we will never forget.

We found plenty to do in Sorrento and surroundings for the week. The weather in October was much cooler than we hoped for, but it didn't rain. On the nicer days I would sit up on the rooftop deck and read - it was quiet and pleasant out of the wind.

I have no hesitation in recommending Hotel Plaza.

Room Tip: Spend the extra to get a larger room.

4 discerning lady travellers had a wonderul stay at the Plaza. It was very clean, nicely decorated and served a good and varied breakfast. The location was idea for the port, restaurants and shopping areas. The hotel staff could not be faulted - nothing was too much trouble. Although the hotel car park was charged daily (10 euro's), staff happily parked and retrieved the car as required.If i'm ever able to return to Sorrento i would head for the Plaza without hesitation.

Great hotel in convenient location close to the city square. Rooms a bit small but very clean. The people at the desk were very polite and accomodating. The roof deck and pool was a pleasant surprise. The breakfast buffet was very generous with pastries, eggs and meat. I would definitely recommend this hotel!

What a pleasant surprise this hotel was for me. So often tours book hotels that are uncomfortable but not this time. It was ideally located just steps from the main square in Sorrento adjacent to wonderful shopping.
The hotel was spotless. The employees of the hotel were so accommodating. The room was spacious and the bed was comfortable. I cannot recommend this recently renovated hotel more highly. It passed every test for me.

Room Tip: Some of the rooms on the front have balconys but the trade off is street noise.

We stayed here during our honeymoon the week of May 19th 2011. Gorgeous hotel in a gorgeous little city. Loved Sorrento! Hotel Plaza was a short walk from the Circumvesuviana (10 minutes). 5 minute walk from Pizzeria De Franco. Best pizza I've ever had. The hotel is beautifully decorated. Light, white, greens. Fresh and bright. The concierge/front desk was quick and informative. They recommended a private driver to take us down the coast for a couple hundred euros for about 8 or 9 hours. The rooms were small but not tiny. Just enough to come back to after a long day and lay down. The bathrooms were clean and modern. We had breakfast downstairs which was nice. Pastries, tarts, yogurt, fruit, meats, breads, juices. The location is one of the best parts about it. It is right near the main road where you can find bars, nearby gelaterias, restaurants, shopping, and the marina right below. All within walking distance. The only cab we took was when we ate dinner at the Marina Grande which is a little bit further and down the steep cliffside. This hotel will definitely be on our go to list when we go back to the Amalfi Coast.

We enjoyed a fantastic 2 nights at the very lovely Plaza Hotel using it as a base for a day trip to Naples by ferry. The location was perfect - a 5 minute walk to the Port & beach, and perfect 2 minute wandering distance to Sorrento's main street. Rooms were very clean with new furniture and fixtures and a lovely bathroom. Decor in the lobby and bar was gorgeous. We used the parking with no problems at all, a great service. Breakfast was fantastic & extensive although we didn't try the hot meals - there was so much choice with the balance. Staff were helpful providing ferry times & directions.

Our only minor comments would be that there was some noise from neighbouring rooms but nothing that seriously compromised our enjoyment of the room. Also we were completely unaware there was a rooftop pool!!! Since returning home we have seen the gorgeous photos and wish we'd known about it via the hotel's literature, signage of front desk staff. I put this mainly down to our own fault for not asking!

In conclusion this is a lovely hotel in a perfect location - I couldn't recommend it more highly!
