We arrive at our hotel in Sorrento at midday, the room is ready so we drop our bags in and check out the view......amazing!! We have a big balcony and can see Napoli and Mount Vesuvius. We've had really nice rooms considering we booked them all last minute and our choices were based on price rather than ...

... view! If we weren't busy sightseeing or shopping, then we were on one of the patios drinking wine, talking, and enjoying the beautiful vistas. We could see Capri and Mount Vesuvius from our patios. The sunsets from our patio were breathtaking!!!!!

On Sunday, we walked to Sorrento, had lunch on the water, and shopped a little. Megan celebrated Mother's Day with gifts and then made us a ...

... Niomi wanted to jump in the pool and relax, but bless Niomi she didn't seem bothered at all. She kept saying it's ok we will find somewhere else. I love having her with me because she does always calm me down and makes things better.

The hotel staff was really good to us and booked us another hotel not far from that hotel. They even drove us there which was really nice of them.

This other hotel was fantastic. It was right along the ...

So I ran back to the big board but unfortunately it was not giving any of the train #’s. So I was back to square one. I ran back to the area where the man was but I could not find him ...

The First Real Italian Weekend

... that everyone was trying to sleep through! I also had the idea of climbing into the suitcase area so that I could fully lay down- best idea ever! Anyway, from there we ventured to Trastevere and, long story short, to Mood.
Saturday we were extremely lazy and all met up at Villa Borghese on the Spanish Steps side which is basically gardens of a former Imperial Palace. It was gorgeous but so crowded with tourists since there's a really good view ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Grand Hotel Flora Sorrento

    Great for couples

    from

    We used the hotel as a base for sightseeing it was only five minutes from the train station, and within easy walking distance of the centre, 10mins.

    We were very impressed , and delighted with the decor of the rooms and elegance of the lobby.We had a side sea view, supplement available ,well worth it to avoid the garage and constant roadnoise.As vegetarians we loved the food which retained its Italian essence ,a definite plus point to find it had not been drastically modified to suit a bland palate.The restaurant staff were brilliant and could not do enough to help.The views of the bay of Naples from the restaurant at sunset were stunning .On the down side , reception could have been more friendly and efficient need to ask 2/3 times for same request. Air-conditioning was controlled centrally and switched off at 07.00 am so you did not need an alarm clock with temperatures already at 28degrees.do not think htl suitable for children no garden area too confined

    Get me out of here!

    from

    Stayed at Grande Hotel Flora August 2004, with two children. Found the room we had to be extremely noisy as a Fila petrol station was directly under our window. To add to the noise of passing scooters, the garage played opera from 7am. The air condition was stuck on a high level and the children and adults could not cool off. Evenings entertainment consists of a man playing 70's type music and in the room we were staying in, this came through as if he were in our room with us!

    If you lounge by the pool expect to pay extra for the privelege and the bar staff will not allow you to pay for anything upfront.

    Food was unusual, expected pasta and simple cuisine instead were given a choice of veal, duck and fish (all varieties) nightly, not good for younger children.

    The hotel lobby staff were rude and unwelcoming and any queries were not answered satisfactorily. By the end of the first week we were desperate to go home to England and enjoy good manners, food and cooler climates.

    Excellent hotel

    from

    We stayed in the Hotel in mid July 2004. The rooms we had (two) were clean and spacious. Maid service was very good with clean towels daily. The food in both the restaurant and pool side bar is of a high standard. All of the staff are very friendly and go out of thier way to be helpful. The swimming pool very large, but probably not suitable for very small children. They charge 5 Euros a day for a pool side sunbed and towel. This can get expensive, but stops people reserving sunbeds all day by placing their towels on them and then going out for the day! The hotel is half a mile walk from the main square in Sorrento. The only down side could be the road that runs outside the front of the hotel. However this did not cause us a problem, even though our rooms were at the front, 5th floor. Guests at the hotel are from many different nationalities, which made for a nice mix of people. Overall I am more than happy to recommend this hotel and would use it again. (Ages: Adults 40's, Children teens).

    Not so Grand!!!!

    from

    The first room we were given had tarpaulin attached to the balcony where building work was taking place. We were woken practiacally every morning by hammering and drilling. The Air con did not work, there wasn't even a fridge, never mind a mini bar as advertised in the brochure. There was no pool-side jacuzzi as advertised and the hotel charged 5 Euro's a day each to lie on a sunbed around the pool! We received very little help from our 'rep' to sort out our problems and when I finally arranged a room move we were given another room in the 'Annex' which did not have double glazing, unlike the rooms in the main building, which allowed the constant noise from the traffic on the very busy main road to wake us. All in all it was a very disappointing 2 weeks and we will definitely not be returning.

    Great Location

    from

    After we booked our holday we read bad reviews about the hotel so weren't expecting a lot. We were delighted when we got off the bus and saw the beautiful lobby and staircase. The bedrooms were spotless and each room had a small balcony. We were booked for B&B only but ate in the dining room for the last three nights of out holiday the staff were very friendly and the food delicious.

    We met people who were staying there for the 3rd year. Great location 5 mins from the main square. I would have no hesitation in recommeding this hotel to anyone and we will definitley be back

    Nothing to complain about

    from

    I stayed at this hotel last year and was so impressed I am returning this year. The hotel is in easy reach of the town, and although it does overlook a garage it didnt bother me at all. The hotel had wonderful marbled floors, staff were very friendly and the food was delicious. I would reccommend this hotel an enjoyable experience.

    Construction at the Flora

    from

    We just returned from a week stay in the Flora Hotel while on a group tour. The Flora is still in the process of renovation with heavy construction work. For example, mixing of concrete in front of the hotel, drilling in the room below us at 7:40am, ever present dust, and scaffolds up to the 3rd floor in the rear. The lobby has been redone in an elaborate style but this hardly compensates for the "construction site" atmosphere elsewhere on the premises. If anyone is considering a stay here ask for a room on the fifth floor in the rear of the hotel -- the front of the hotel is on a busy main street with a gas station right across the way.

    Shabby is a good word for this

    from

    The hotel was quite a walk from the centre of Sorrento and our room overlooked a garage and a very busy main road. The hotel itself needs updating and has a tired feel. As English, independent travellers we were also ignored as the hotels main business appears to be American package tours. Overall not a success although we have stayed in far worse hotels in Rome!

    Works Very Well

    from

    Stayed at the Flora Hotel in Sorrento for a week with a tour group.

    Hotel is located "in town" which makes most things an easy walk. Rooms were clean and comfortable(not huge) with a more than adequate bathroom. Ask for a room on the back of the hotel. These rooms have a small balcony with table and two chairs. Best of all these rooms have direct views over the Bay of Naples and Mt Vesuvius. Hotel food was very good for tour fare. The dining room(s) have beautiful views of the gulf and beyond. Hotel staff was helpful. Would recommend.

    Superb facilities and Staff

    from

    Before we went to Sorrento (July 2003), we read reviews of the Hotel Flora which described it as 'shabby'. That may have been the case, but fortunately for us, the hotel had been completely refurbished in a very stylish, typically italian, fashion. Real wood and 'acres' of italian marble have created a luxury look, whilst retaining the hotel's relaxing atmosphere. The hotel maintains a very friendly approach, whilst providing a highly professional service. We could not fault any of the staff. We will definitely try to return in the future.
