"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

"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
"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. Hotellfrukosten lämnade inget övrigt att önska. Sammantaget var besöket på hotellet i november klart prisvärt.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
非常に良いステイでした。唯一の不満はダブルベッドがシングルを二つつなげたものであったこと。それ以外はほぼ完璧でした。Genuine Hotels.com guest review

We stayed at la favorita for one week in July. Only wish we could have stayed longer. Everything about this hotel is perfect. It has an ideal location close to everything Sorrento has to offer and is set in beautifully maintained gardens. It was wonderful to have breakfast everyday in the garden under the orange and lemon trees and the breakfast itself was fantastic. There was a wide selection of both hot and cold food and the waiters were very helpful. We also ate on the roof terrace twice during our stay and the food here was the best of the week. The highlight was fillet steak cooked at the table for us by Luigi, it was incredible, as were the crepe suzettes, definitely have them if you are there! In terms of price eating at the hotel was no more expensive than the restaurants elsewhere in Sorrento. The wine was also excellent and was recommended by Luigi who looked after us very well! The quality of drinks and cocktails was also of a very high standard and we were surprised and impressed to see Fever Tree tonic which is so much nicer than schweppes. Guiseppe's cocktails are a must! Delicious whilst watching the sunset on the roof terrace. We also enjoyed the live music every evening and in particular the saxophonist. If you go to the favorita you will not be disappointed it really is a wonderful hotel with helpful and friendly staff who really look after you. Thank you to all the staff, we cannot wait to return.

I got married in Sorrento and had drinks and canapés at La Favorita before my reception outside of Sorrento. I got married in the cloister so this was just a short walk for my guests and as I had my drinks served in the white bar it was a much needed break from the hot sun. The service was fantastic and the quality was brilliant. We had the whole area to ourselves and all of my guests had a great time. There are also some great places to have pictures and we got some amazing group shots taken here.
"Great Hotel and Great Location"
07/29/14 Emma J London, United Kingdom
We stayed at La Favorita in July and were very impressed with the hotel. The location is perfect – within walking distance of the port, train station, main square, shops and restaurants but on the edge of the central area so still very quiet at night. We were easily able to travel to Pompeii, Ischia and Capri using the local trains and hydrofoils whereas those staying in hotels further away from the centre would possibly be more reliant on organised excursions and coaches. The hotel itself is beautiful, clean and very well maintained. The rooms are spacious and again spotlessly clean and comfortable. They have air conditioning, mini bar, hairdryer, slippers and bath robes. The pool area on the roof is peaceful and relaxing with plenty of towels, umbrellas, sun loungers and space even at a busy time of the year. The terrace garden is shadier and an equally lovely spot to sit for a drink amongst the lemon trees. The food at the hotel is wonderful with lots of choice for both breakfast and dinner. The hotel staff are friendly and helpful and made sure our stay was very enjoyable. I really would recommend this hotel for anyone looking for a central Sorrento base and a luxurious and relaxing break.

Third year at this lovely hotel all staff very friendly and helpful nothing is to much trouble, good choice at breakfast rooms clean and spacious. Location could not be better just a few minuets from the main square. Shall be returning in August for another relaxing week.
"An amazing place to stay in Sorrento"
07/25/14 thelexusgirl Bridgewater, New Jersey
This hotel is absolutely amazing and I cannot more highly recommend it! It is very new, only 4 years old, and fabulously maintained. The staff was warm, friendly and helpful when we needed assistance, we had met the owner at his restaurant who welcomed us and took our young son over to a lemon tree and let him pick one (my son was so excited). Breakfast was excellent with an omelet station and homemade jams included. The outdoor terrace on the second level is stunning with beautiful lemon and orange trees growing and all kinds of other gorgeous plants. Look for the orange and lemon tree that they fused together so it grows both types of fruit, pretty incredible. Also, visit the owners restaurant of the same name "La Favorita" it was one of our best and favorite meals on our one week Italy trip. The roof terrace and swimming pool area are also fantastic with amazing views. We continued our Amalfi visit to a hotel in Positano and wish we would have made La Favorita our home base for our entire trip!

Just returned from four night stay at this hotel. We had a lovely time. We stayed bed and breakfast the breakfast was lovely, plenty of choice and very good quality food. The staff at the hotel are fantastic very attentive. The pool on the fourth floor is very nice, quite small but adequate. The bar is also very good and the cocktails and lovely. We had lunch in the bar which was very nice. The rooms are spacious and very clean, I loved the bathroom! We checked out tripadvisor for places to eat, I would recommend Raki gelato it's Amazing! The best meal we had was in ristorante o patrician which is under the same management as the hotel. The food is authentic and with a good homemade feel.
"La Favorita. Brilliant Hotel /Brilliant Location"
07/23/14 Raymond D Glasgow, United Kingdom
We are just back from our holiday at La Favorita Hotel. Our Son and Daughter in Law have been to La Favourita three time before. They were going back for a fourth time last week, and persuaded us to go as well. The Hotel is amazing, it is so beautiful, The location is ideal. I cannot recommend this hotel enough. The entrance, the reception area, the room. The pool terrace gives you a fantastic view of the bay of Naples, Vesuvius, and The Isle of Capri. The décor through out the Hotel is beautiful. From the very minute we arrived we felt very relaxed and pleased we had come to La Favorita. The staff at this hotel are so very friendly and charming. Breakfast is a delight in the beautiful dinning room, or you can eat outside if you prefer. We were treated so well by everyone. This hotel deserves every one of its 5 Stars. We will be back, of this I am certain. A wonderful experience all round.
"The Devil's in the Detail"
07/22/14 Robin M Leeds, United Kingdom
From the moment you walk in to the very impressive lobby until the time you leave you will find it hard to find fault with this hotel. The staff are very well trained and all seem to understand the importance of making your stay as special as possible. Sit on the roof Terence with a drink in hand and watch the sun set over the bay or better still eat dinner up there as the sun is setting and smile at the choice you have made. This hotel really is as good as it gets.

Stayed in a family room with husband and two kids under 12. We stayed in room 305 and the room was extremely spacious by any standard, European or otherwise. We had a big king bed and two separate singles and there was plenty of space. The room had a beautiful balcony with peekaboo view of the sea, and beautiful tile floors. The bed and pillows were among the most comfortable I have ever used in a hotel and the black-out window shutters were perfect if you like a dark room for sleeping. There is a rooftop pool that is on the small side, but suited the purpose. The location was perfect, near Sorrento restaurants and shopping. No hesitation recommending this hotel if you are visiting Sorrento and surrounding area.
"Absolutely amazing! Definitely a 5 star hotel"
When we first arrived at night the outside was absolutely amazing! The reception area is lovely and the staff are very friendly. Things got even better when we went upstairs to the outside garden terrace. The garden is beautiful! Lovely landscape and trees. Very tranquil and relaxing. The rooms we stayed in were amazing :) lovely upholstery and very clean. The only negative thing was that I didn't have wifi in my room but everywhere else in the hotel had wifi. The chambermaids were very nice and kept our room very clean. The restaurant and bar was absolutely spectacular! The bar has tiffany style upholstery which was beautiful! The restaurant had delicious food and we were served with great respect. Special mentions to luigi and dino who were fantastic friendly staff. Also young Salvatore who had recently started working in the restaurant did a great job and was friendly. Well done so far Salvatore :) Up on the fourth floor is the pool and another restaurant. Absolutely amazing views! We were all in awe :) ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL HOTEL. I can't wait to come back :)
