"So nice, we stayed twice!"
I ended my previous review of La Favorita (Jan 5, 2013) by saying we would Definitely stay here again. - and one year later we returned for the holidays! Everything was as magnificent this time as last time... even better in fact! It's as if they heeded my request for better in room wifi, because the signal is now strong. Once again I maintain that […] this hotel exceeds all expectations on most every detail: absolutely spotless, comfortable beds, spacious accommodations, a breakfast buffet fit for royalty, friendly & extremely helpful staff, excellent central location, beautiful elegant design, luxurious bathrooms.... where do I stop praising this place?! My only request would be for an in house exercise facility. The owner said he's actually working on that as well. So sad to be leaving tomorrow, but we're looking forward to returning again one day!

"Nice hotel, great location"
The hotel was beautiful and the staff very helpful. My only complaint was that one of the employees (reception) was pushing another restaurant (also belonging to the hotel). I didn't mind him mentioning it one time, but he told us about it more than once - one time when we were asking specifically about a different restaurant.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Beautiful Hotel In Great Location!!!"
We stayed in La Favorita for 3 Nights and wish we had stayed longer. From the moment we entered the lobby, we knew we had hit the jackpot and the view from our room was fantastic. It was the favorite part of our 8 night stay in Italy which included 2 nights in Rome, 3 nights in Sorrento, and another 3 nights in Florence. Having started our trip in Rome, […] we found our stay in Sorrento to be much more relaxing and the sites to see absolutely breathtaking (Amalfi Coast, Pompei, Capri) without the hustle and bustle of the big cities. The small town feel of Sorrento, with beautiful ocean views and great shopping and dining is a fantasitc add on to any Italian vacation. Having taken in the big cities, I would definately make Sorrento a week long stay, sometime in the future. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Elegance at a reasonable price"
We were very happy with our stay--spacious room, nice bathroom and a great balcony. They gave us a little upgrade (and a bottle of champagne) since it was our honeymoon, but we would have loved to have had an ocean view room, of which there are a few. Overall a great location and very chic looking hotel for the price!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Staff was fabulous. Very Clean! Perfect location. Very comfortable.Genuine Expedia guest review
Amazing hotel!!! Very clean and modern. Great location. Walking distance to everywhere. Only issue is WiFi in room doesn't work that well.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
My wife and I stayed for three nights. Very clean and comfortable hotel. Deluxe room was larger than expected. Breakfast was superb. Nice location for personal travelers. Easy access to Sorrento port about 10 minutes on foot via a lift (elevater) located in the municipal park. We went to Capri island and Amalfi by jet foil regular services, 25 and 70 […] minutes respectively from Sorrento port. We also went to Pompeii ruin by local tram, Circumvesviana. Sorrento station was less than 15 minutes on foot and from there 30 minutes ride to Pompeii. Shopping zone was just a minute on foot. We enjoyed a stroll safely till late as many tourists did so. Raki, popular icecream shop, was also near, just a few minutes' walk. Hope to stay again in future! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Beautiful hotel in the heart of Sorrento"
Our 12 night stay over the December holidays at La Favorita was luxurious! The attentive service, the spotless and comfortable room, the beautiful design of the hotel & the perfect central location made for an unforgettable experience in Sorrento!! Through Hotels.com, we were fortunate to get a nice deal on an extended stay in a junior suite. The room […] features: a balcony, a huge jacuzzi tub, lots of space with 16 foot decorated ceilings, a super comfortable king bed, & turndown service. Breakfast was wonderful & included in the price. The only things I would add is a better in-room wifi connection (the lobby was the only viable way to get on line), & perhaps a fitness room (but there's a great gym a few blocks away available for 10 euro per visit... & lots of steep inclines to hike). I had read an important piece of advice on one TA review regarding those who choose to stay here in the cooler months: The AC is shut off for the winter! If you're like us & like to sleep in a cool room, you'll need to keep your balcony door open. The street below is noisy until the wee hours so use earplugs or a white noise iPad app to drown it all out. Also, re-reconfirm your airport transfer requests & Hotels.com info (or any other booking sites) just before you leave home ...just a phone call to the front desk should do, as there's lots of room for communication errors...but the same can be said for any accommodation.

Beautiful hotel. Enjoyed the pool and restaurant and bar on the roof. Lovely room and bathroom. Breakfasts in a pretty garden. Great location to the port. Good place to use as a center to visit Amalfi Coast, Mt Vesuvius and Pompeii, and Capri.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This hotel was fantastic. It is in a great location, very big room and huge bathroom. The staff went above and beyond - the service was the best I have encountered. Shout out to Guiseppe at the pool bar. He was so attentive to all the guests - did not miss a thing. Excellent hotel - would highly recommend it.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Clean hotel, close to shops."
Hotel only have 4 rooms with sea view. for sea view you have to double the price of normal rooms. not worth it.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good location for touring Amalfi coast"
Easy to get to restaurants, good touring location . Nice hotel with character and excellent breakfast. Some noise from outside hotel at night from local youths and scooters. Expedia room pictures showed picture of junior suite as superior room, but management gave us better room that picture showed.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great Hotel in Sorrento"
The hotel was about 10 city blocks from the train station, we walked it with our luggage and had no problems. The hotel is one block from the Med. Sea and about two blocks from Sorrento's main street. We highly recommend this hotel and would stay here when we visit Sorrento next year.Genuine Expedia guest review
We can not praise the hotel and it's staff enough. The hotel was absolutely beautiful and in the most amazing setting, close to the piazza and town and with a both sea views and of the winding streets. The room was so fantastic that my partner thought I'd paid for a surprise upgrade, I hadn't this was their standard room and it was stunning! The staff […] were attentive but not intrusive and were able to help us with all our queries and questions. They made our stay such a pleasure. Amazing and sensational do not cover La Grande Hotel Favorita enough!! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Very modern and in an ideal location I would highly recommend staying here. Staff were helpful and service very efficient. Rooms were spacious and included the usual toiletries as well as bath robes and slippers. There was plenty of options at the breakfast buffet including hot and cold options. There was a welcome drink in the bar included which was […] a nice touch. Although out of season we did go up to the roof top area and use the sun loungers - in the Summer with the bar and pool open I imagine this would be a great way to end the day after a busy day of sightseeing.

"Lovely hotel, good location"
The hotel and staff are excellent. The room was a good size with excellent facilities. The only negative was the bed, which was extremely hard and uncomfortable. I cannot state if all the beds in this hotel are uncomfortable but ours was so I would recommend people ask the question if they require a softer mattress.Genuine Expedia guest review
Excellent hotel in a great position with friendly and helpful staff. The breakfast was delicious. The weather was bad for our stay so unfortunately the pool was closed and the roof terrace was not in use, but there were fanatastic views from the terrace. The only very slight negative was that there was no view from the bedroom, but otherwise we had […] an excellent holiday, despite the rain. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Roof terrace is superb"
The roof terrace with swimming pool and sun loungers was the stand out feature of the hotel for us. It had the sun all day and the views were fantastic as well. The hotel was also ideally located, very central but tucked enough away to not be too noisy.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Very relaxing and enjoyable week"
Staff were welcoming and helpful - even providing a free upgrade to a junior suite - and hotel is stunning. Features of the room including highly effective airconditioning that ran even when the room was locked up plus electronic shutters to close off the balcony doors - necessary as the temperatures were between 35 and 40 every day whilst we stayed. Convenient […] location for shops and restaurants and beautiful view across the Bay of Naples from the rooftop terrace (pool, resaturant and bar). On arrival we were giving a voucher for a free drink at the bar per person plus 10% discount for a nearby restaurant. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Wonderful hotel, looking forward to returning"
The location of the hotel was perfect. Everything you need for your stay was there. Staff were helpful and pleasant, cleanliness excellent, breakfast fantastic. Will definitely stay there again.Genuine Expedia guest review
This is a great hotel. The best word to describe this hotel is 'quality'. Everything about the hotel was quality - the rooms, the interior, the food and the staff. No cut corners. It's a great location. The staff are really helpful. I would highly recommend eating at the their restaurant on the main street. It's a real treat!Genuine Expedia guest review
Some excellent points, lovely views from the rooftop pool, but overall felt let down after we checked out. Had the distinct impression that once we had checked out they basically wanted nothing further to do with you, and would only offer very basic assistance.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
ホテル、部屋、サービスはよかったです。朝食も幅広く、おいしかったです。場所は、ソレント中心で、どこにいくにも便利。（フェリー乗り場、ソレント駅、ともに10分ちょいの徒歩圏です）一つ残念だったのがWIFIが途中故障してることが多かったことです。それ以外は、よかったので、またソレントにくるときはここに泊まりたいと思います。Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Una Joya en la mejor ubicación de Sorrento."
El hotel esta a la altura de los mejores 5 estrellas que he visitado. La decoración es de muy buen gusto. Muy agradable la piscina y las áreas comunes. El desayuno fue sin duda el mejor de Italia. La atención del personal fue puntillosa y la ubicación majestuosa. Esta situado a unos pocos metros de todos los lugares que uno quiere visitar en Sorrento, […] en medio del bario histórico y es un hotel inaugurado en el 2010. La tarifa muy conveniente para esta categoría de hotel. Sin duda cuando regrese a esta hermosa ciudad me alojare en este mismo hotel. Gracias. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Vistelsen var mycket angenäm:, nybyggt (bara fyra år gammalt),centralt och strandnära beläget ett par kvarter från huvudstråket i staden med serviceinriktad och uppmärksam personal.

"Beautiful Hotel, mixture of tradition and modern"
08/19/14 Fay2001 Hemel Hempstead, United Kingdom
We stayed in La Favorita for our honeymoon in July/August 2014. The hotel was beautiful. Ideal location for exploring Sorrento and almalfi coast, as well as Pompeii, Vesuvius and Naples. Rooms were sparkling clean, reception immaculate and staff very helpful and polite. Rooftop pool had amazing views, and despite being peak season, there was plenty of sunbeds and was very relaxed. Bar was lovely, only a shame it closed around 12am. We didn't eat in the restaurant but breakfast was a good continental spread, fresh and again service brilliant. I'd definitely stay here again.
"Beautiful hotel in excellent location"
08/16/14 Ian F Gloucester
We stayed here for 10 nights and it certainly didn't disappoint! From the moment you arrive you are looked after by very courteous and friendly staff. We stayed in a standard room which was beautifully appointed and came with a very large ensuite, which is fairly rare to find in most hotels. All I can do is repeat what other reviewers have stated, location is very central, making it perfect for eating out in the evening and exploring Sorrento. With this in mind make sure you only book bed & breakfast, as there are so many good restaurants within just 5 minutes walk from the hotel. We never ate dinner in the hotel, but had a few lunches by the rooftop pool. These were always good and reasonably priced for a 5* hotel.
"Five Stars in Sorrento"
08/14/14 Kevin D London, United Kingdom
Back a week from Italy, after 10 days at the Grand Hotel La Favorita, Sorrento. This is a 5 star hotel and certainly doesn't disappoint. Probably one of the best situated hotels in town. Just step out the door and you are in the famous lanes of the town, with dozens of shops and great restaurants to tempt you. The hotel has not long been refurbished, and the place is spotless, with an attention to detail I've not come across before. The staff were brilliant. Friendly, efficient and very helpful. The facilities were excellent, especially the pool, with a very attentive pool boy who did not stop all day, adjusting people's loungers & umbrellas constantly. The poolside restaurant was equally impressive, with great food day & night and a lovely view over the bay of Naples toward Vesuvius. Our room, although not large was more than adequate for the length of stay, with ample storage, great bath/shower room and first rate, daily housekeeping. We were B+B and the breakfast was sumptuous, with hot/cold, sweet/sour, whatever you wanted, and the best coffee I've had in years. All in all, deserving it's 5 stars and would return, and or recommend without hesitation. Must give a shout out to the reception staff, who were very helpful to us, as I arrived with a severe chest infection and required medical assistance. I'd also like to mention Luigi the head waiter, courtesy and professionalism personified.
"Peaceful Stay at La Favorita"
08/11/14 BekGreen Bristol
Stayed here during the week of our wedding at the end of July and we were not disappointed. We had a junior suite with its two private balconies and lovely large bathroom. The hotel itself is beautifully decorated and ideally located near the centre, ideal for a little shopping, not far from the train station for day trips out and close to Marina Grande. The service from all staff was exceptional and nothing was too much trouble. Breakfast was a nice calm, organised affair and there is lots on offer, a mixture of continental meats and cheeses, cooked options and beautiful pastries. We always felt warmly welcomed by staff. The roof top pool has outstanding views of the Bay of Naples and is a very relaxing way to spend a day. The rooftop bar is well organised and food and drinks readily available, menu prices are pretty good for a hotel of this type. The room itself was spotless and cleaned daily. We had our canapes here after our wedding and again the service was exceptional. Staff were friendly, helpful and very professional. I can honestly say I would stay here again and can highly recommend the hotel. Even though it was very central it was not a noisy hotel at all. I am so glad I chose to stay here during my wedding, best decision I made. Thank you to all the staff, we look forward to our next visit x

Stayed here with my husband and we absolutely loved it! Rooms were beautiful and very clean. Staff were very friendly and attentive. Great location! Breakfast was wonderful and the rooftop pool was fabulous.
08/10/14 Paradise_Visitors Orlando, Florida
This hotel's pictures doesn't do it justice, it's magnificent! We had a view of the Mediterranean as well as Mount Vesuvius - can you top that? The hotel is breathtakingly beautiful, the room was extremely spacious and so was the water closet. We had a private balcony which overlooked the limon trees and a nice garden. The only concern I had is when I asked if we could get an room upgrade and the staff told me no; not use to that yet the room was still top notch. I just wanted higher up for a better view. Roof top terrace/pool/bar overlooked the sea - just wonderful!

What an amazing hotel. We were on honeymoon and stayed at the La Favorita in July for 11 nights. Our first impression when stepping out the taxi was wow! On arrival staff were very friendly and courteous and offered us their congratulations. Our cases were taken by the porter and we were personally shown to our room on the 3rd floor which was stunning and had the most fabulous sea view. An ice cold bottle of bubbly awaited us! The room had classic italian decor and was spotless and spacious. The giant bed was very comfortable. The room was cleaned every day and towels changed and each night whilst out enjoying Sorrento's nightlife the bedding was 'turned down' with a sweet on each pillow. We loved the electric blackout blind we could control from our bed! The hotel was beautiful and stylish in every way from the elegant entrance up to the rooftop pool. What a view! Breakfast was delicious and plentiful. We were greeted every morning with a friendly smile and our favourite spot was on the terrace listening to the birds. All staff were very hard working and attentive and could not do enough for us. The location was perfect and very central. Everything was within easy walking distance. We have never stayed in a 5 star hotel before but it far exceeded our expectations and one day we will return! If we were to score the hotel out of 10, we would give it 11! Thank you to all the staff for making our stay better than we could have ever imagined. We have many fond memories of the hotel and Sorrento itself and these will stay with us forever. Love Jayne & Tony from Bristol (England).xx

We spent 4 nights and used Sorrento as our home base for Sorrento and Positano. Lovely, clean and perfectly located hotel. Breakfast was wonderful and the service excellent. I would recommend this hotel, however there are 2 points that are easy to fix in my opinion that would make this hotel a 5. Wifi is spotty at best and we were disappointed to receive no restaurant recommendations other than their sister restaurant. We rely on the hotel and staff for guidance and unfortunately, they were instructed to only promote their restaurant. Otherwise, everything was fabulous.
"One of the best"

This was our second visit to Sorrento but my first stay at La Favorita.What a beautiful hotel.The staff, from the Manager to the pool attendant and cleaners were friendly and efficient.Breakfast could not be better, and the dinner fare is of the finest quality. This hotel is located in the old town ,ideal for shopping and dining in one of the many great restaurants. The views from the rooftop pool bar and dining area over the Bay of Naples are wonderful.
"Elegance and service in the heart of Sorrento"
08/05/14 anna s Richmond, United Kingdom
Down town Sorrento can be a rather hot and buzzy place - which is the charm of it. However, after a morning exploring the beautiful alleyways of Sorrento, it was a pleasure to step into the cool elegant lobby of La Favorita. The hotel is very central and convenient for all things Sorrento. The rooms are elegant, clean and very spacious. Beautiful bed linen and a roomy marbled bathroom. The roof top pool is perfect to cool down in. You can then lounge on the roof top or wander across the roof to the exquisite bar/restaurant, where they serve top cocktails, cool beers, water with the ever tasty green olives. Breakfast was a buffet; superb choice of fresh fruit, cooked omelette, a large selection of sweet cakes and more. We had a wonderful stay - oh also the service was very good!!
