The Astoria Hotel is a comfortable base for exploring Sorrento. The hotel’s architecture is classically Italian, with arched entranceways and Juliet balconies. Inside, the rooms are bright with shades of lemon and spearmint.
The hotel doesn’t have a pool, but you’re welcome to use the pool at the sister hotel throughout your stay. It’s just a 10-minute walk away through the winding streets.
The restaurant serves big buffet breakfasts and you can take your food out onto the pretty courtyard garden and dine al fresco. There isn’t dinner service, but there are hundreds of restaurants on your doorstep.
Overview of Sorrento
Sorrento is a great base for a holiday to the Neapolitan Riviera. With cobblestone streets and picture-perfect views of Mount Vesuvius, Sorrento is a seaside town that opens its heart to visitors.
The chic setting of Sorrento comes with plenty of Italian charm. Pavement cafes line the streets in Sorrento’s old town and you’ll never struggle to grab a chilled drink or a fresh slice of pizza.
Down on the front, impressive bathing platforms sit beneath the cliffs and you can cool off in the sea by the rocky shores. As Sorrento is in the heart of the Neapolitan Riviera, it’s also easy to reach the beautiful Positano and Amalfi from the Astoria Hotel.
