... with its own bathroom. There is no balcony but there is a very tall window with a deep windowsill and two chairs in front of it, which feels almost like a balcony. The window looks across the alleyway and the opposite building seems to be a residence; very pretty balconies overgrown with plants and laundry. (Every day is laundry day in Italy, and no one seems to own a dryer. Colorful laundry hanging out to dry is part of the picturesque scenery.) Another important ...

The trip down from Riomaggiore to Sorrento went via Rome (a one hour stop over between connecting trains that - thanks to the Italian rail network - end up being more of a 1000 metre sprint between connecting trains) and also stopped in Naples, where we travelled on the Circumvesuviana electric rail to Sorrento. I know that even in Australia the rail network is not the best way to see the beauty of towns, but even after making those allowances and even after what we had read ...
... the shock to the weary traveller who all of a sudden wasn't quite sure what to do. One man said it was a strike (thankfully the hostel later confirmed it was just the holiday). Anyhows, I ran into a nice American couple who spoke Italian and we found the alternate route: a boat

And then… finally I reach Cava di Tirreni, which not only has a large train station still in use on Christmas, but also a beautiful old city, with open restaurants and even a gelateria!

Historical Traveler Reviews Imperial Hotel Tramontano Sorrento
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.

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.
