Come Back to Sorrento
Remembering the Hotel Tramontano is all too easy. Casting my mind back to the 80's when my husband and I stayed there 5 years on the trott. We always booked a Sea View room for 2 weeks and were never ever disappointed. The Staff we knew well, we were treated like guests but also like family by then. We always felt like 'movie stars'. My, how the place must have changed by now, but no drop in standards I'm sure.
I will always hold this place close to my heart and hope to 'Come Back to Sorrento' once again in the future. I cannot even begin to reflect on those memories in this short space of type.......... Only to say, Torna Soriento'.Kind RegardsJill
What a view!
We've stayed at the Tramontano twice and have enjoyed both stays. The head waiter is a Roger Moore lookalike - very charming and attentive.
Views of the bay of Naples are superb if you get a front facing room - pity there aren't more balconies. The food the second time round was not as good as the first time - the same sort of things each day, not always hot. The public rooms are spectacular and opulent, bedrooms much smaller than the usual. Location is fab - right in the centre of Sorrento.
My wife and I stayed at the Tramontano Hotel for 2 weeks in August 03.
The hotel is situated within Sorrento and is perched on the cliff top, it is ellegant and a very relaxing place. The Staff made us feel like we were the only people there,they had a very relaxed attitude,it was never too much trouble for them to ask about your day and share a joke with you. The food was varied and always excellent.We had a room with a balcony overlooking the bay of Naples, which was not only breathtaking, with Versuvius in the background,but meant there was always something to look at in the bay, including the cruise ships dropping anchor for a visit to Sorrento.
Beautiful views over Bay of Naples from bedroom balcony, worth the extra expense. Traditional Italian public rooms, decor and furniture in keeping with period, elegant yet comfortable. Excellent restaurant service, Italian style meals, wonderful view again of the bay from restaurant. Delightful gardens and swimming pool, private and cool in the heat. I would recommend it to people who like comfort, peace and quiet ,yet courteous service.
Imperial Tramontano Hotel
Just returned from southern Italy and the Imperial Tramontano Hotel in Sorrento was a wonderful place to stay. It had a great location and a safe place to park a car. When visiting the Amalfi Coast I would recommend staying in Sorrento - it is relatively flat and easy to walk around. There are great restaurants, shopping and lots to do at night. From Sorrento it is easy to take a bus or boat to Capri, Naples, Amalfi, Positano, or anywhere else in the area - don't even think about driving because there is nowhere to park. I would return to Sorrento in a minute.
This Tramantano was fabulous!
We stayed at the Tramantano for a week in June, 2003 for our honeymoon and we absolutely loved this hotel. It was very centrally located and we had an amazing suite overlooking the ocean and Mount Vesuvius. The staff was nice and the rooms were clean. We didn't use the beach because it was always very crowded and while access to the beach for hotel guests is free, you do have to pay to use a lounge chair and beach umbrella. Instead, we sat by the pool, which was beautiful, relaxing and much less crowded. We would definitely stay there again.
It was a very nice stay
We stayed here for 2 nights during our honeymoon in June. The hotel and staff were very nice and accommodating. It was very clean and centrally located to shops and restaurants. Our room was overlooking the garden and it was extremely spacious by Italian standards. The breakfast and service were all excellent.
imperial tramantano is worth every euro ,the hotel ,the staff, are brilliant.i cant wait to go again
What a place!!
A+ Fantastic rooms, we had a balony suite over looking the ocean.
Outstanding service, terrific location, Beautiful decor!! Well worth the $$.
Best Hotel I have ever stayed in
Beautiful old Hotel. Exterior looks to have seen better days but do not let this fool you. Inside you will find a very comfortable and modern Hotel, with it's own individual style. The Public areas are decorated in a grand style, and all rooms are individually decorated. Wonderfull views across the bay of Naples & Vesuvius are available.
Imagine sitting on the terrace overlooking the bay sipping cocktails whilst the piano entertains you quietly in the background. Perfect.

... long. Into the Sistine Chapel- no photos. Our guide, prior to entering the chapel, explained the frescos on the ceiling and walls. Michelangelo painted the ceiling from the age of 33 to 37. He came back in his 60's to paint the 'creation' on the wall behind the altar. Meanwhile, some Cardinal kept harping at the pope for Michelangelo to put clothes on the figures. The pope disagreed with the Cardinal and so did Michelangelo , so the Cardinal ...

... overlooking Sorrento and Naples with Mt Vesuvius to complete the picture. It was a great place to stay and had a caravan park feel to it. That night I made friends with a older German guy who bought me a big beer and tried to speak English as we watched the semi final of the World Cup.
We walked into Sorrento the next day and had a look around, the views during the walk were awesome and I guess the reason why the place is so popular to ...
... a pizza from one of the local places near the hotel. I insisted back that I wasn't hungry but that I would of course help her eat anything. After Tamara left I knew I had to find my non-cranky self again and actually got quite excited about a nice cheesy hot pizza. Maybe 2 - all that crankiness had made me even hungrier. Yep, hopefully she brings back 2. That'll do the trick!
Tamara was gone for only about 10 ...

We arrived at Pompei just after 5:30 and easily found our hotel, after passing a lovely square with a huge church. It is on the first floor but fortunately it has a lift. The owner was most welcoming and helpful. We explained what we wanted to do over the next three days and he suggested the best days and the best combinations for it. He also suggested to go by train to most places but to definitely get ...
