"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
"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
"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
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

"Very well presented hotel very close to the centre"
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. Not really possible to get a sea vista from the rooms - but gardens are excellent - and the view from the roof top pool / bar area is great and you get a super view of the bay etc. Highly recommended.

"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

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

"Perfect in every way"
09/20/14 Lesley S Harrogate, United Kingdom
I cannot rate this hotel and the staff highly enough. We had the most fantastic week here. From the moment we arrived we were looked after. The hotel is just stunningly beautiful, immaculate in every detail and situated in a perfect location both for views from the roof top bar and restaurant to being able to walk within 5 mins to the centre, train station and 10 mins to the boats. It is also quiet and peaceful. A huge thank you to Luigi who looks after every single guest at breakfast and evening meal and makes you feel as though you are the most important guest there. Also to Carmini and all the other staff who were so friendly and welcoming. We didn't intend to eat in the hotel restaurant but after we had our welcome glass of prosecco on the roof terrace we fell in love with the view and stayed for lunch... and then we fell in love with the food. We have eaten in a lot of great locations and restaurants but there was just something so relaxing and beautiful about this place that you would have to go a long way to beat it. A cocktail, or G&T to start the evening with nibbles; a beautiful meal, excellent wine selection, perfect service and stunning views... and very reasonably priced. Even if you decide not to stay here, I would suggest that you eat here at least once at the roof top restaurant, you will not be disappointed. I should add that the breakfast was equally wonderful. Everything you could possibly want and more. All fresh, with a chef on hand to cook you eggs, omelets, pancakes etc. It was perfect and you can sit inside, on the terrace, or in the secret garden. The reality of this hotel is even better than the website photos. I can't wait to go back.
"One of the finest anywhere!"
09/17/14 Jeff D Pennsylvania
My wife and I visited the Amalfi coast pf Italy in April 2014. The Grand Hotel La Favorita is an exquisite hotel and easily among the finest I have ever stayed at. The room was beautiful wall to wall tile. The view from the room was lovely. The property was very nice with lemon trees that only added to the amazing views. We had breakfast each morning. The food was excellent and the dining room staff was very kind. The dining room captain worked with me in my feeble attempts to speak Italian. The hotel location is perfect. No more than two blocks from the center of the very nice town. We intend to visit Sorrento again and will stay at La Favorita again.
"A romantic evening"

My Boyfriend & I enjoyed a perfect last night in Sorrento here recently. We dined on the terrace late one evening - Unbeatable views, great and very reasonably priced food with a sax player in the background - after a romantic dance we left feeling very happy - perfecto !
09/15/14 Anthony H Nottingham, United Kingdom
5 stars on the door were definitely achieved here! The last 4 nights of our honeymoon could not have been in a more romantic hotel and city. From when we walked through the doors we were in awe of the style and decoration. The desk staff were friendly and helpful and the room was just magnificent. Breakfast and lunch were delicious and drinks were reasonably priced. The rooftop pool gives you an amazing view of the sea, mountains and volcano Vesuvius all in one go! All with poolside service you never have to move so a great place to relax in between sight seeing. Very quiet at night time. If you are going on a tour anywhere the staff can organise all of this at a decent price. There is also a secret garden that is breathtaking at night!! Thank you for a wonderful time xxx
"Great service and convenient location to explore the amafitana coast"
09/12/14 José M D M Sao Paulo, SP
I stayed at this property for 5 nights in September 2014 with my wife and some friends. The services is very good and all the staff is friendly. The arranged us transportaion to Rome and other cities of the region, as well as a boat to Capri. eveything was very easy and the prices reasonable. The rooms are large, although the beds could be larger and more confortable. They have a nice swiming pool on the rooptop with a view to the ocean, but for no apparent reason the bar at the pool sometimes closes early. It would be nice to stay there at night having some drinks but this was not always possible.
"It will be hard to find a more lovely hotel in the centre of Sorrento"
09/11/14 lexiedoodles Durham, United Kingdom
We stayed here late August and I am sure I picked the best hotel for centre of Sorrento with easy access to the lovely cobbled streets, shops and restaurants. The hotel itself is immaculately clean - I saw maintenance people repainting in various places and the level of cleanliness and care by the staff is excellent. The cleaning staff gave us fresh bed linen every day and the towels were changed twice a day, beds turned down at night with a little sweet on the pillow. Nothing was too much trouble. Luigi and his team in the restaurant are the most courteous and helpful people I have come across and I am very well travelled. Overall, if I was to return to Sorrento it would be to this hotel. The guy who looks after the pool area is extremely attentive, always watching the direction of the sun to move your umbrellas to give you shade. Felt massively looked after at this hotel. You will too. Don't hesitate. It is ranked as 5* and it is.
"Serenity in Sorrento"
09/10/14 platypus7 Auckland
What a lovely hotel! This wonderful hotel would have to be among the best (if not the best) in Sorrento. We arrived by train and didn't have too much trouble finding it. Because Sorrento is not so large, the hotel is really close to restaurants, too. The decor of the hotel is fabulous, very light and very well presented. Maintenance is excellent. Speaking of restaurants, there is a really nice restaurant on the top floor of the hotel. It is outside on the terrace (along with a bar and the swimming pool) and the food is great. The hotel is really good. All the floors are tiled, (even the bedrooms), the bathrooms have bidets as well as toilet, bath/shower and handbasin. and it all fits together well. Our room was a reasonable size, well appointed and beautifully decorated. The bed was large and comfortable and the bedclothes suitable for the climate and the room. Our room was equipped with a safe that was very easy to use. We also had two armchairs and a chair for the desk. The internet connection worked well although it was a little slow at times. Breakfasts were of good variety and plentiful. There was a chef available to make omelets, fried eggs or pancakes if required. This review would not be complete if I did not mention the staff. They made us feel really welcome. We would even consider returning for a few days, just to experience the ambience of the place! Well done, Grand Hotel La Favorita.

We drove to this hotel, not an easy task if you miss the turning as the streets are very narrow, but the hotel is well worth the effort. When we arrived the staff were very helpful and friendly and showed us to a lovely room. Even though we didn't have a balcony with a view, the plants dressing up the balcony made it still a lovely place to sit. We had been travelling for the week previous and when we got there just wanted to relax, and this hotel was perfect for that. After eating in the hotel restaurant that night (purely out of laziness as the location is perfect) we were so impressed we chose to eat there the following lunch time. Food and service excellent. Pool side was also lovely, no rush for the sunbeds, which were ever so comfortable, and towels provided. The views from the restaurant and pool were amazing! Highly recommend!
"Beautiful & Elegant hotel"
09/08/14 Ella J Milan, Italy
With a front desk staff that was superb! They were so helpful and kind when my luggage didn't show up. Gave me plenty of ideas where to go to replace many items. The true jewel of this hotel is upstairs and outside. The outdoor patio/ restaurant/ bar is fantastic. The view is unbeatable. Rooms were very nicely made up, and the bathroom was huge! Breakfast in the dinning room was buffet, and it had something for everyone. Fruits - yogurts - pastries to sliced meats & cheeses, with fresh coffee to order.
