"Trip of a lifetime!"
My wife and I stayed at this hotel for three nights and had a wonderful time! The service was amazing and the complimentary breakfast in the morning was great. The breathtaking views from the rooftop were the best. It made it hard to go out to a new restaurant when the views are that great! As far as the service goes it was great all-around from the […] front desk man Roberto, to the Bellman Francesco and our server Francesco as well. We even had a incident when we left where I left my camera in the taxi with all our pictures on it from our trip. I frantically called the front desk and within five minutes the taxi driver was at the train station with my camera. Best service ever!!! Would go back in a heartbeat! If there is one negative thing to say about this hotel is that they need to get new mattresses for their rooms. If you're looking for a room with a view you will not get it with the base model. Those rooms will be on the ground level. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Charming Old Style 5 star hotel."
Great location in the heart of historic Sorento. Easy walking to restaurants, shopping and to the waterfront. The hotel was wonderful, and well maintained. Our room was spacious and very comfortable. The hotel has a fine dining room as well as a great breakfast which was included in our room rate. One of the best features was the swimming pool located […] on their roof top. Great way to relax after a hectic day traveling around the city. Highly recommended. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel in THE perfect location!"
We stayed here for the first stop on our honeymoon and we were extremely pleased with the hotel itself and the location. The hotel is ideally situated in the heart of Sorrento but tucked slightly out of the way of the super touristy streets. You get the benefit of proximity to the best of Sorrento without the noise and crowds just a few streets down. […] The breakfast was incredible and the options were endless! We booked a semi-private boat cruise to Capri through the front desk and it was sooooooo well worth the money! 'Capitano Ago' was the name of the boat excursion and it was one of the highlights of our 16 days in Italy/Greece! The only negative I can say about this hotel is that treat you like a suspected thief when you use their pool towels. I am not sure if there is a high rate of towel stealing in Sorrento but it was absolutely absurd what a huge deal they made about their towels and they go so far as to not allow you to remove them from the pool deck...it seemed very weird for such a nice hotel to treat guests like criminals over a towel. Other than that this hotel was Aces all around! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great hotel and great location."
This is a great first class hotel...room was large and luxurious with a huge bathroom (certainly not common for Italy). The hotel is a great location close to the beach, shops and restaurants.Genuine Expedia guest review
"First Trip to Sorrento."
This hotel was gorgeous and the staff was extremely nice and helpful during our stay. The location was perfect for a stroll through the streets of Sorrento to shop and sight see and close to the port (within walking distance) to embark to the island of Capri or any other destinations you may wish to see while in Italy. There really is not much of a […] view from any of the nicely decorated and spacious rooms but that did not matter to us. We were only in our rooms for a short period of time. I would highly recommend!!! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Everything was wonderful. The location was perfect and the gardens were beautiful.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Not great for a 5 star"
The housekeeping was sub par and the internet was worthless. Better hotels abound in sorrento.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Excellent location & facility"
On a two week trip to Italy to celebrate our 50th anniversary, we stayed at four hotels; all four or five star. Hotel La Favorita was without question our favorite; beautiful facility and very convenient to both beach and shopping. Room & bathroom were very large; common rooms were also spacious. The landscaping here was breathtaking. We also had dinner […] at their restaurant that was a very short distance from the hotel; the oldest restaurant in Sorrento. The food was excellent, some of the best we had on the trip and the prices were extremely reasonable.The restaurant itself was beautiful; we ate on the terrace. (They also have restaurants at the hotel.) In addition, the breakfast buffet came with our room and again, it was the best we experienced on our trip. If we are ever in Italy again, we will definitely stay at Hotel La Favorita! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Perfect for our Honeymoon!"
Upon arrival, the staff was very accommodating. We were upgraded automatically since it was our Honeymoon. The room was spacious and the shower was great. The bed was a little hard for my taste, but not necessarily a complaint. They even let us use the pool and amenities after we checked out on our last day before we headed to Positano. I would highly […] recommend this hotel and will definitely return in the future! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Beautiful well-appointed hotel, clean and well-maintained, spacious and attractive rooms, lovely dining room, lounge, and bar/pool area on the roof, great breakfasts included in the price, good location. Staff was helpful and friendly.Genuine Expedia guest review
"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
"Sorrento numero uno"
wonderful hotel in a good location for exploring Sorrento and the surrounding area rooftop terrace and breakfast both excellentGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Everything was very very good including the breakfast buffet. My only complaint is the pool was just too cold to actually swim which was disappointing as the weather was 80+ degrees.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A fantatic hotel"
A really lovely clean hotel. Fantastic rooftop area to sit and sunbathe or have a drink and it has a restaurant. A swimming pool which is immaculate and well tended. The views are amazing from here overlooking mt vesuvius. Its situated within a 5 min walk of shops, bars and restaurants. A must if staying in Sorrento.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Lovely rooftop pool"
Lovely hotel. Great location. Front desk and pool service were fantastic. Chambermaid service was a little inconsistent. Though the room was always clean, garbage was left behind one day, amenities were not replaced another day. The extra blanket which we were using was gone one day - and we had to call the front desk to bring another.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Should've stayed longer"
Positano was our last port of call before heading home after an 8-day trip to the Naples area including the islands of Ischia and Capri. We stayed mostly at Relais & Chateau hotels and generally had a great time. However, had we known what we know now, we would have spent longer on the beautiful Amalfi Coast and in particular at the GH La Favorita which […] met all of our (somewhat discerning) discerning expectations. We were treated like old friend despite our short stay so have no hesitation in giving this little gem a very high recommendation. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"One of the best locations in Sorrento"
Excellent location near the cliff top and very close to lift that takes you down to the beach. In the very best part of town surrounded by bustling pedestrian streets full of great restaurants, gelato etc. Sister restaurant by hotel owner is highly recommended, a beautiful indoor garden to dine in, definitely worth a visit. Il Buco restaurant is only […] a few minutes walk away, one of the best places to eat in Sorrento. Read moreGenuine Expedia 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.

"Well kept hotel"
Well maintained, beautiful hotel in the center of Sorrento. Close to the Bay of Naples, within walking distance of train and bus station. Beautiful rooftop pool and bar/dining area. Excellent buffet breakfast with many options to choose from. Nice view from balcony on 1st floor; would be even better from 2nd and 3rd floor. First floor near/above the […] dining room is a bit noisy in early am and late at night. The partner restaurant on Corso Italia (Parrucchiano, owned by same family) is phenomenal. Great setting in their outdoor lemon garden and outstanding food - highly recommended. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Ideal location with lovely roof top pool and bar"
The location of this hotel in Sorrento is ideal- close to the shopping, bars, restaurants and main square. Easy access to the stairs/ lift to the beach and port. It is 5 mins walk from the port for boats to Capri, Positano and Amalfi. It is approximately 10 minutes walk to the train station, for visits to Pompeii and Naples. The roof top pool with […] bar and restaurant is the highlight with great views and food. The breakfast is good and the rooms and main areas are decorated to a high standard. Beautiful gardens and entrance with citrus trees and flowers. We would return to this hotel and found the value to be excellent. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Hotel is in excellent condition - all rooms / facilities spotless - very nice decor ( vaulted ceilings in rooms / no marks / scuffs / etc. We were upgraded to a Junior Suite on arrival - which also had a jacuzzi bath. All staff were excellent and polite / helpful particularly Luigi ( Head Waiter ) - Reception staff - and the young chap who kept the […] pool area on the roof spotless.

"Great hotel, smart without being over stuffy."
The rooms and other facilities were excellent as we're the very friendly staff. Well located a short walk from the town centre and port. We were particularly impressed that they opened the dinning room 20 minutes early to ensure we had breakfast before our flight home.Genuine Expedia guest review
Everyone was very helpful and friendly nothing was too much trouble we will definitely be going back to stay at La FavoritaGenuine Expedia 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 place to stay if you are visiting Sorrento, and want to go to Pompeii and to the Amalfi coast. The hotel is very well kept, the service is impeccable. It is very kitch, and copies the style of the much more expensive super grand hotels on the coast.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
