“Wonderful Experience”
Reviewed 11 June 2010

I stayed with my husband for three nights at the beginning of June. The location is fantastic and the hotel is beautiful. Everyone is also so friendly and helpful. The bartender recommended going to Basilica for dinner, which was great. If I ever go back to Sorrento this is where I will be staying.

My wife and I stayed here very recently and we thoroughly enjoyed everything the hotel had to offer. It’s in a perfect location in a central location, just seconds walk from Tasso Square. Rooms are large enough, well-thought out and comfortable. Also, very little noise from the road/square outside, especially bearing in mind the location. Excellent selection of breakfast food – fruit, eggs & bacon, Croissants, cakes, rolls, etc.

Staff are superb – as we found throughout Sorrento – being both very helpful and friendly. Would thoroughly recommend this hotel, especially at such a good price. Only slight downsides are the lack any heating in the roof-top pool when we visited (early June), as it was very very cold! And although it’s just large enough for a leisurely paddle, the pool is not quite big enough for a full-on swim.

Superb views over the Bay of Naples towards Vesuvius though. Also a bit surprising was the lack of a restaurant in the hotel for an evening meal, or facility to have lunchtime snacks. To be honest though, there are enough quality restaurants in and around Tasso square to not be too bothered by this! Overall, excellent hotel!!

We stayed in Hotel Plaza as a base for attending a family wedding in Positano. It was perfect in every way. Location excellent, staff friendly and helpful. From reception area, to breakfast area to rooms,all kept to a very high standard. Roof top pool with relaxing areas just made the stay perfect. We will without doubt be back to stay in Plaza and would highly recommend this hotel as a perfect location for a stay in Sorrento.

We arrived to Sorrento via train and found the hotel easily enough and within a few blocks of the station. Everyone at the front desk could not have been friendlier, and very good at answering all of our questions. The room was very clean, everything worked, including the air conditioning. The breakfast buffet was first rate (and, again, great staff providing some wonderful cappuccino and hot chocolates) with lots of choices in a comfortable setting. Since this is off the main square it was relatively quiet both during the day and in the evenings. I would have liked free wireless internet in our room but they did offer complimentary use of a pc and printer downstairs. Also, they have a lovely horizon-pool on the rooftop, while not huge, is great for a dip and cooling off and indeed the entire roof is comfortably set up for sunning, reading and relaxation. Sorrento itself was a pleasant surprise as many travel books suggest to just give it a miss (many good restaurants and some interesting shops to browse). We took the bus to Positano and had a lovely day there, taking the ferry back at the end of the day.

Dear sir, thank you for rating us on tripadvisor. We value our guests' comments very much.
We have noticed that in your review though you regret not having had free wireless internet in the room. Perhaps you meant borrowing a hotel laptop in the room? In fact, there is indeed free wireless internet throughout the hotel both in the public areas (lobby, plaza cafe, sky bar) and the guests' rooms. We are very sorry if you did not realize such service be available for some lack of communication on our part!
Regards

We've just returned from a 4 day trip to Sorrento. After reading many positive reviews we decided to choose the Plaza as our base. I'm very happy to say it was an excellent decision. As we are in our late 20's we wanted somewhere modern(quite tough in Sorrento) clean and with a good location. The Plaza ticked all of these boxes.

As previous reviewers have mentioned, it is right of the main square and close to all the shops and the train station. A couple of tips- there is a pharmacy across from the hotel but they are extremely expensive. I paid 18 euros for a small bottle of shampoo and conditioner. If you walk out the hotel, and turn right at the square there is a supermarket with everything where you can get the same for about 8 euros.

We ate at Il Buco restaurant which is about a 10min walk from the square. As it is a Michelin star restaurant we expected to be wowed. Sadly this was not the case. Food was ok, nice but nothing spectacular. Service was very poor. We waited 20min in between ordering wine and actually receiving it. This is only after having to ask for it! We got given bread for the table but without any olive oil or balsamic- had to ask again. Can go on and on but will write a seperate review for the restaurant. Bottom line- save yourself the 250 euros and go somewhere else.

One last note on the hotel front- We got to the hotel quite late on our first night. After checking in we went up to the roof to check out the pool. As it was quite dark my husband didn't notice the little water step just before the main steps- he got one soaked foot!! Watch out! Think it's meant for washing your feet? Drying out after the pool? Is in quite a awkward place. Gave us a good laugh though. All in all- I highly recommend this hotel!

Just recently renovated very modern and all facilities included and you can not beat the location. We got to the hotel after a horrible experiance in a B&B in Aggata. They couldn't have been nicer and accomodating in all requests. They recommended the Musical Sorrento in the Tasso Theater and we loved it! Nice stay.
