“Great hotel in a terrific location”
Everything was WONDERFUL about this hotel with the exception that the beds were not particularly comfortable. The location was great - you do have a partially obscured view by the one hotel that is between this hotel and the sea ... but it isn't a problem. I would definitely go back to this hotel again.
“Beautiful hotel in an awesome location!”
I did a lot of research into hotels in Sorrento and my research paid off. The Continental is a great hotel and very clean! I particularly wanted to stay somewhere in a central location, close to the main piazza and the marina. The Continental is not only in a perfect location, but in a beautiful location. I have no complaints. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We received a free room up grade to a room with a sea view....so beautiful. We will definitely stay here again.
“Hotel Continental Sorrento - Great week”
Our experience at the Continental was fantastic. We had been upgraded to a junior suite at no charge. the suite was wonderful! It was HUGE by Italian standards. It had a big double bed with a couch, coffee table, a coat closet and a walk-in-closet. yes, I said a walk-in-closet. Just when we didn't think it could get much better than this, the bellman raised the "hurricane shade" and we saw the view. Vesuvius towering over the Naples Bay straight in front of us. The balcony was huge in it's own right. It was a wrap-around with two lounge chairs in two different areas and an outdoor dining table for four with 270 degree view. Room service. l. There are dividers between the balconies for privacy at that level. A great benefit is the hotel elevator to the beach below. It's a $3 a day charge, and better than walking the block to pay to use the public elevator or the steep walk to Marina Piccola. The tunnel has an electronic gate and is very safe. The hotel is convenient and easily with walking distance of all the major attractions of Sorrento including the train station. One note that if you want a full view of the bay, then you need to be on the next to top floor (4th?) otherwise you have a view of the back of the hotel between the Continental and the cliff with a sliver of bay to the right.. The rooms on the east end are "seaview" from the side.
Great location...very close to the center of the old town and also right on the water. The only problem with this hotel is the age of the mattresses....I would guess they are about 30 years old....you can really feel the springs... EVerything else is terrific..!
“Hotel Continental in Sorrento - close but no cigar”
The small things matter at the Continental - the hotel had not turned on the a/c and our room was stuffy; there was no parking for our car due to a holiday so we had to park in metro garages; the walls were thin enough to clearly here everything going on next door; the mattresses were soft and old. But the hotel property is lovely, with a beautiful pool area and clean rooms that are fully tiled and quite lovely, with charming small balconies.
The room was not nice at all. The bed was uncomfortable with an old mattress which had a dip from usage. We were facing a construction site, so there was no view at all. They were working at the site, so there was a lot of noise. The air conditioner was not working. The room decor was hideous. I was expecting a romantic stay, but with the lack of comfort, no view, noise, etc. we were disappointed. The only positive was that it was not a far walk from the center of town. We live in Naples, so we stay at different hotels in Sorrento a lot for short getaways. We will not be using this one again.
