Imperial Hotel Tramontano
Travel Blogs from Sorrento
It was an early start today. The alarm went off at 6:00am and we started getting ready for our day. We ordered room service the night before and it showed up promptly at 6:30. By 7:30 we were in the ship's theatre waiting to get off the ship for our tour. We booked a tour of the Amalfi Coast and Pompeii. We were on the bus with our guide Margot and …
... quite happy about meeting Giuseppe.
Later on, the guys in the architect apartment offered to make us dinner, and we spent a couple of hours eating, drinking, and just chatting it up. My mom was caught up on gossip within the group (she loves being in-the-know), and then came the display of embarrassing pictures my dad finds of me on his phone. Damn technology.
On Thursday I took my parents to the ruins ...
Another busy but fun day in Italia! Had classes and then a mad dash to get to the meeting place for the pickup of our group to drive to Napoli for a guided tour of the above named museo. Ate the sandwich I made this morning after arriving and then waiting for a few people. About 28 people from the school went, it was nice to have someone else think, plan, and arrange for transportation, ...
... Initially I was thinking this will be OK who ever has stolen the wallet will not be able to access our funds, the PIN is committed to memory so it wouldn't be too bad (third mistakes of the day!)
It took us ages to find our hotel pick up point dragging our suitcases up and down streets around Sorrento but finally we did and whilst waiting, we realised that Gary had also brought his American Express credit card. It gets better!! On arriving at our hotel ...
... box as a gift and a hug when we left.
We are quickly falling into the Italian rhythm and had a large lunch at 3:00pm. We found a place called the "Foreigner's Club" that had a restaurant overlooking the water and another excellent menu. They also had a tourist information center there and public rest rooms It was established by the city in 1934 to offer visitors the opportunity to meet and spend peaceful hours listening to music, dancing, and having ...

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.

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.
