    A Gorgeous Place to Stay


    We had a beautiful seaview room over the Mediterranean Sea and the room was so luxurious. Such nice tile floor, I think they were hand painted.

    Unique Quality: Spacious room and bathroom, great terrace also

    Classically elegant hotel in sensational location


    We spent our honeymoon here and it was everything we hoped for. We had a junior suite overlooking the Bay of Naples with wonderful tiled floors, high ceilings, and a wonderful relaxing feel.

    The hotel is old-fashioned, so do not expect satellite TV and a fully modern health spa. It does have an outisde pool and a lift to the hotel's bathing platforms.

    Unique Quality: The location and views of this hotel are THE BEST.

    Directions: The best cliff-side location in Sorrento, bar-none.

  • Very classy, wonderful sea views


    We got an amazingly good deal for this centrally-based hotel which is sat right on the cliff-edge and has stunning views over the bay of Naples and out to Vesuvius.

    The food isn't spectacular - part of our deal was "half board included," something I don't usually enjoy as it restricts you to having their food each night. I usually like to explore the town and find a nice restaurant when I'm on this kind of holiday.

    The hotel itself is old, dating back to the 1800s, and large but with an intimate feel. Staff are very "professional," and always willing to help as well as being quite friendly. The rooms are spotless - we had one with a sea-view and small balcony, easily the most outstanding view from any hotel I've stayed in. The floor was tiled & blue, and the usual things such as fridge, telephone & wardrobes.

    One minor complaint; the week before we arrived, it was so cold they had the central-heating on. As soon as we arrived, temperatures had rocketed to 30c+ but the hotel's airconditioning couldn't be turned on for another 2 weeks (never knew why). It was pretty warm to say the least.

    Unique Quality: Wonderful pool and immaculately-kept gardens. Not my thing, personally, but even I could see they were very attractive.

    Views, as mentioned, are outstanding.

    Centrally located, just a 2 minute walk to the main square.

Great View at Half the Price

by deecat about Hotel Continental in Sorrento

4Our first choice of hotels in Sorrento was the elegant TRAMONTANO where all the famed writers and royalty stayed, but it was far too expensive.

Thus, our second choice was Belvedere Syrene because of its beauty and views to the Bay of Naples, but there was no vacancy. So, our third choice was next door at the Continental. The price includes breakfast and a view of the town park and the Bay of Naples.

The hotel was clean with large rooms, a balcony with views, English speaking news on TV, and big white fluffy towels with hoods! (loved them)

So, we had the view we wanted at half the price. Here are the reasons we stayed at the Hotel Continental in Sorrento.

Reasonable price.

Great location within walking distance of all the shops and restaurants.

Special services such as turning down beds at night and delicious chocolates left on the stand beside the bed.

Breakfast included in the price.

Balcony with spectacular VIEWS of the park and the Bay of Naples.

Hotel Imperial Tramontano - Beware - No Credit Cards accepted

by A TripAdvisor Member

Just got back from two weeks at the Hotel Imperial Tramontano at Sorrento (July 2004). I had booked (and paid) for room and half board before arrival. All further expenses at the hotel - lunches, drinks, wine, excursions, transport to airport etc have to be PAID IN CASH. Coming from Paris, France we did not take wads of cash or travellers cheques with us and were concerned to learn that you generally can only get 300€ per week out of distributors. We ended up not "daring" to take lunches at the hotel in case we ran up too much of a cash bill. The hotel is very good even if the half board dinner menu gets a little repetitive after a few days, but there is lots of choice for each course.
The pool is rather small but there is a larger area where you have other sunbeds. The beach is small and is not restricted to the hotel so gets very busy but it is a sandy beach which is rare in the area. You get a lift down to the beach which operates from 9 am to 2 pm and then from 4 pm to 6 pm. You can walk down and up (if you're very brave) between 2 pm and 4 pm. Two sunbeds and a parasol cost around 18€ per day but entry to the beach is free for hotel residents. We had a very good holiday and will definitely go back to Sorrento in the future.

Just Fantastic!

by A TripAdvisor Member

After reading your reviews for several months, it was with trepidation that I booked over the internet at Hotel Imperial Tramontano. However, the rooms were better than expected, in fact clean, stylish, roomy and luxurious! As expected the view was to die for, the service excellent and friendly, and being so close to town made it very easy with a family. I would definitely like to return and thank the staff for their hospitality and for making our stay so enjoyable.

What a place to celebrate a 25th wedding anniversary!

by A TripAdvisor Member

We stayed at the Hotel Imperial Tramontano for 2 weeks in July 2004 to celebrate our silver wedding anniversary. We will keep the wonderful memories forever! The hotel was fantastic and the service second to none. All of the staff were extremely attentive and first class. We chose to stay in one of the senior split-level suites through Citalia Holidays. The room was out of this world with wonderful views across the Bay of Naples and Veseuvias which gave us the perfect opportunity of photographing some beautiful sunsets. The dining room was spacious whilst remaining intimate and dinner in the evening overlooking the bay, together with the sunset, made the evening meal a special occasion every time. Both the decor and furnishings were of extremely high quality.

We spent many evenings sitting in the Piazza Tasso with a bottle of wine or two watching the world go by, just like true Italians! The hotel is only a 5 minute stroll away. We would highly recommend the organised trips along the Amalfi Drive which included Ravello and Positano as well as Amalfi itself. Also Herculaneum and Pompeii were certainly worth a visit especially with one of the guided tours which ensures you get a full appreciation of the history. It is a good idea to make your own way to Capri and Anna Capri as the island is easily reached by either the hydro-foil or ferry. It's worth getting one of the early links to the island, well before the organised tourist trips start.

Sorrento itself is a wonderful place with its cobbled streets, extremely friendly atmosphere, good restaurants, bars and shops, all of which are open until the early hours. Davide's Ice Cream Parlour and the Foreigners Club are a must for any visitor!

We had a brilliant time and the memories will last forever!

The town is very friendly and welcoming to visitors .What more can I say I love it and I love ITALY.

good location, poor restaurant

by A TripAdvisor Member

We stayed at the Tramontano in August 04 on the 4th floor, the room was small and not that great. The previous occupiers had been smokers and it took 3 days for the smell to clear.
Having arrived at 8.55pm we were told the restaurant closed at 9pm, I wish we hadn't bothered, although the staff were really OK, the food was cold and poor, according to the menu it is 47 euros each before drinks.
Even a relatively expensive restaurant in the town including drinks only came to around 90 euros.
Breakfast was even worse: fruit cordial - not fresh juice, tinned pineapple rings or fuit cocktail depending on the day, and cold and extremely unappetising fried or scambled eggs. (there was also cereals and some patisserie if you wanted that). We also regularly saw people leaving the fresh fruit there was available as it was either unripe or sour tasting. Therefore despite having paid for half board we ate out every night, and we were not the only ones.
Towels have to be back by with the pool attendant by 6pm or you pay 26 euros for the pleasure, and to cap it all on our last day - even though it says in the literature that you have to be out of your room by 12 noon, we had to vacate by 11am.
Wild horses could not drag me back to this hotel - try the excelsior.

Sorrento, lovely Sorrento

by TripAdvisor Member jmdpsca

We arrived in Sorrento, via Naples train station,(be careful here- of theft) we are met by our driver, private car, by Carmine Monetti- a jolly italiano, and will take you most anywhere.
"THE IMPERIAL" was a great surprise,as we had visited Rome and Florence, and stayed at WESTIN EXCELSIOR in bothe cities. we did not expect to find the hotel, room, location, etc. to our delight , WE HAD A BEAUTIFUL SUITE, OVERLOOKING THE BAY. WE were treated very well by the staff, also the hotel van, which is available for trips down, to all the seaside restaurants have excellent seafood. A must, try "TASSO" owned and run by two brothers, wonderful food and wine. Also, note beach closes on Oct. 1, and A/C stops as well then too.
