Now we know why it is so highly rated

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on July 24, 2012

We stayed in a Jr. Suite for 5 nights in June and truly enjoyed the convenience, quiet and terrific breakfast. they have a beautiful pool area and we did not use it but we did have lunch there once. They also serve a great buffet breakfast indorrs or out and their bar is wonderful.
the hotel is spotless and service impeccable.
Great location and we have stayed in Sorrento 5 times now and this is by far our favorite hotel.

Unique Quality: No restuarant but there are so many restaurants within walking distance it does not matter. they do serve breakfast and a lite lunch menu and drinks at anytime of day or night.

Directions: main square in sorrento is right outside the front door

Great location and Lovely hotel

Located only about 100 yards from the Piazza Tasso (the main square in Sorrento) this hotel is very centrally located, yet still maintains an air of quiet and relaxation once inside.
The rooms were clean with plenty of storage space, the staff are very accomodating and friendly and there is a lovely little pool set in a lemon grove.
Breakfast is included and there is plenty to set you up for a days exploring - cereals, fruit, cold meats, breads, juices and bacon and eggs plus the friendly waitresses with supply you with your hot drinks. Breakfast can be taken in the spacious indoor dining area or outside in the sunshine (which was particularly nice).
If you fancy spending some time by the pool, there is plenty of sunbeds to choose from, with clean towels provided and a snack bar serving food and drinks (though you have to pay for these).
All in all a lovely hotel that I would recommend to anyone.

Unique Quality: Great location, friendly staff and a lovely breakfast.

Directions: only about 100 yards from Piazza Tasso

This elegant hotel, just off Piazza Tasso, was part of a Rome/Capri/Sorrento package we'd booked and a real delight. We'd had to upgrade from a standard to a "comfort" room as no standards were available and it was well worth the few extra euro - the room was HUGE, with french doors that gave us direct access to the back garden. Besides being very clean, quiet and comfortable, it came with all the amenities: hairdryer, safe, internet connection, satellite TV, etc. No coffee/tea makers but that seems to be normal for Italian hotels.

Facilities include an outdoor pool and sun-bathing area, lobby bar, pool bar, marble terraces, large, sunny breakfast room and beautiful, park-like grounds. The staff was also first rate - very friendly and particularly helpful dealing with a transfer snag that would have been difficult for us to handle alone. They even had boxed breakfasts made up for our 4:30 AM run to the Naples airport! Rated a 4-star, I give this place 5 for the quality of their services alone - they're a class act.

Rates run 100-300 euro for standard or comfort rooms, and suites run more. Check their excellent website (lots of pictures!) for current packages. Breakfast is included with your room - lovely.

Unique Quality: All of it, from facilities to services, was terrific. The large, green space/gardens in back made it feel peaceful and removed from the bustle and noise of the piazza.

This is the second time we have stayed at the Antiche Mura. The hotel is exquisite. The location is perfect - right off of the main piazza and close to everything. But the most outstanding feature is the staff. They cannot do enough for you - from helping you to mail home to planning your day - it is all done enthusiatically and professionally.
When we came back this year we felt as if we were returning home.
I would recommend this hotel for all ages - singles - honeymooners. There is something for everyone.
The breakfast is a sight to behold - meats and cheeses of every description. The sweet table tempts all but the strongest willed.
We are already looking forward to our next visit.

Unique Quality: Our suite was exquisite - all of the ammentities you need. The pool area is quite comfortable and the outside eating area is beautiful - beneath sprawling lemon trees.
Again the staff are unique in their caring and concern. They want you to enjoy yourself and will do whatever possible to enable you to do just that.

Directions: Right off of Piazza Tasso

Nice hotel; great location

Antiche Mura is wonderfully located off Piazza Tasso (the main Sorrento Piazza). It is convenient to the Circumvesuvia train and all bus transportation as well as the ferry to Capri. It is within easy walking distance of the Standa supermarket where one should buy their goodies rather than the MUCH higher priced tourist oriented merchants.

The rooms are comfortable; the staff exceptionally accommodating and helpful. The breakfast is good, not outstanding. If Antiche Mura has a shortcoming, it is the feeble water pressure.

Unique Quality: The location as a place to explore the Amalfi Coast, Pompei, Herculneum, Capri, even Naples (take the Circumvesuvia direct to the terminii -about 1 1/2 hours) is exceptional. The price is reasonable and the standard rooms most comfortable albeit not spacious.

Directions: At the Piazza Tasso. with your back to the Mediterrean, the hotel is is one block from the Piazza in the right hand corner atop a hill.

Delightful gem in Sorrento

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)

Sorrento offers many levels of accomodation from the sublime to the ridiculous. We were neither honeymooners on the trip of a lifetime nor students looking for a place to crash. The Hotel Antiche Mura is the perfect place for someone who wants first class comfort in a beautiful, well-run gem of a hotel at a very reasonable price. It has 46 rooms, is quiet and well-appointed. We had a "comfort room" for 140EU per night including a bountiful breakfast in a bright and pretty breakfast room. The room was a nice size with new, inlaid wood furniture which reflects the area's tradition of exquisite wood marquetry. It had enough built-in drawers and closet space for a month's worth of clothes, good bedside reading lights, a desk with lamp and a very, very comfortable bed. The double-insulated french doors opened to a small balconey with two chairs and a table overlooking the chasm formed by the old Roman wall. The newly-renovated bath had a tub and hydro-massage shower and was well lighted. A hairdryer, frigobar and room safe are provided.

There is a spacious lounge and bar where happy hour specials are offered in an effort to get guests to mingle and mix - a very thoughtful, hospitable gesture. There is also a desk and internet-connected computer for the use of the guests (albeit at a small charge which I think is aimed at keeping guest's use to a reasonable time). The hotel staff is delightful and are quick to answer e-mail inquiries. They also booked a private car to pick us up at Naples airport (100 EU).

Unique Quality: There is a very pretty pool in a garden as well as several terraces for relaxing in good weather.

Directions: Just off Piazza Tasso and an easy 5 minute walk to the circumvesuviana train to Pompei or the SITA Pullman bus to Amalfi

Great hotel, great breakfast, great stay!

We only stayed at the Hotel Antiche Mura for one night, but it was a wonderful hotel. The rooms were perfectly clean and were charming with Italian tiles and a great view onto the garden. The windows were able to be completely blocked out at night, perfect if you need a good night's sleep. Very good value, got more than we paid for!

Unique Quality: Breakfast was outstanding. A huge selection of meats, cheeses, fruits and pastries, as well as eggs, bacon and cereals.

The staff were all helpful and polite, although they didn't know where our car rental place was even though it was down the street. I think it was more of our language barrier than their problem and they did their best to try to help us.

Directions: Right in the center of Sorrento, just off the main piazza. Central to the town and to restaurants. Just a short walk from the Circumvesuviana train as well.
