What a fantastic hotel!

Posted 22-Apr-2015
Pros: The politeness and friendliness of the staff and the general upkeep/service provided. Nothing was ever too much trouble. Its position and the views
Cons: 'In room' tea/coffee making facilities, for those of us who like tea first thing The availability of daily, multi-national newspapers in Reception
Location: We found the hotel to be in an ideal spot ie close to the port (for visits to Capri/Positano/Amalfi) as well as an abundance of restaurants nearby
From the moment we arrived to the moment we left (after our 6 day stay), we could not really fault this hotel. The staff were exceptional and always happy to go that extra mile to accommodate, the food was great (with an array of breakfast options) and the hotel was clean, tidy and extremely well presented. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely revisit Sorrento and the Grand Hotel La Favorita in the future. Thank you to all the staff for making us feel so welcome and for helping us enjoy our stay. We cannot recommend this hotel highly enough.

Pretty, well maintained and lovely hotel

Posted 20-Apr-2015
Pros: Very clean, pretty and very well kept
Location: Sorrento is a lovely town, still quite traditional and quiet. Not really a family holiday, perfect for a long weekend.
This hotel is worthy of a recommendation. Everything about this hotel shows attention to detail, class and quality. Sorrento itself is lovely, clean and still fairly traditional. La Favorita has a warm welcome and friendly staff. The hotel is bright, airy, well decorated and very clean. Breakfast at hotel is plentiful and offers a great variety. We did not have dinner in hotel but menu looked very good. Bar area and roof top pool are impressive. All the staff were friendly and helpful. Trip to Positano and Capri are a must. Bus journey to village of Anacapri is a bit hairy but well worth it.

Just fabulous

Posted 16-Apr-2015
Pros: Location and breakfast
Cons: All rooms to have at least a balcony. Shame about the pool being closed until May.
Everything was extremely lovely apart from the fact that our view from our room was of a wall. We were extremely upset as it seemed everyone else, at least had a balcony! Apart from that the hotel was perfect and as for the breakfasts, well, they surpassed all expectations. Thank you Grande Hotel La Favorita

Lovely hotel with very friendly and helpful staff

Posted 14-Apr-2015
Pros: The staff were very friendly and very understanding of our shameful lack of Italian
Cons: the bed was a little too hard for comfort
Location: It is on a quiet street very near everything you might want; loads of restaurants within walking distance. Near the harbour for trips along the coast.
We have just returned from a great holiday in Sorrento. The hotel was really clean and friendly and provided a fantastic breakfast. Very good value for money. There is lots to do in the area and Sorrento is within an easy train ride of Pompeii and Herculaneum.

Perfect hotel in a perfect location

Posted 14-Apr-2015
Pros: Location, style and staff.
A lovely stay from start to end in a charming and unique hotel. The staff are friendly and helpful. The hotel is in a great location for a short walk to the main square, marina and train station. This was a short break with my sister, the hotel was ideal for it. Best suited to couples and small groups of adults.

Excellent location

Posted 11-Apr-2015
Very clean hotel with extremely helpful staff. Excellent location, 15 mins walk from the station and just over 5 to the main square. Only odd thing in my opinion was the room ventilation- although AC is advertised, it is switched off in the cold season. The room was too warm so resorted to opening the balcony door. This was ok but a bit noisy from the surrounding street.

Grand hotel la favorita

Posted 09-Apr-2015
Pros: Clean room Nice balcony on the superior room Attentive staff Excellent location Quality of buffet breakfast was very good
Cons: - air conditioning did not work - hard bed and thin bed linen - no gym and the pool not in use during April
Location: Great location for sorrento shops A trip to Pompeii is a must, I'd suggest going by train cathedral and museum are well worth seeing Have a gelato
Having stayed in world renown five star hotels such as the shangra-la and the trump it is easy to conclude that this hotel is not at that level, no gym and in my opinion the beds were too hard. In reality it seems that sorrento does not have any hotels of the very highest level, so potentially this is the best on offer. Given the above would I stay in this hotel again? Yes. The hotel was very clean including the room and we had nice views from our balcony. Staff were also on the whole very attentive. A real positive is that the location of hotel is excellent for getting around the town.

Pros: Excellent quality all round
Cons: The Beautiful Roof Terrace offering fantastic views was one of the things that attracted us to the hotel and it wasn't open. Not made clear in details
Location: stunning views and lots of interesting historical visits e.g. Vesuvius, Pompeii etc
Fantastic week on the amalfi coast - first time in the area and the hotel were welcoming and very helpful. Everything was excellent except for the fact that the rooftop terrace was closed until the end of April and this was not made clear in the online details or in the booking confirmation

Magic!`

Posted 23-Dec-2014
Pros: Excellent service, great atmosphere.
The Hotel was conveniently located near the train station and provided from rooftop. It was something out of a 1940's movie and we truly enjoyed our stay.
