More traditional than trend-setting, this 85-room hotel in the heart of Sorrento offers a haven from the buzz of the city, whether you’re chilling by the rooftop pool or sipping espresso in the leafy garden terrace planted with lemon and orange trees. Some rooms feature balconies, frescos, 18th century tiles and marble bathrooms, while the restaurants – including O’ Parrucchiano, a short stroll from the hotel – dish up traditional Sorrentine dishes like the rolled pasta classic cannelloni (originally called “Strascinati”.) Gather with other guests for sunset cocktails on the roof terrace, which overlooks Mount Vesuvius and the Bay of Naples.
In the Area
Start at the Chiesa di San Francesco (Church of St. Francis), where you can stroll past bougainvillea-clad walls to the Arabic portico and arches of the cloisters. There are also concerts in summer and regular art exhibitions: contact the tourist office for tickets and information. Cook up a storm of Sorrentine specialties at Tofani cooking school, where you can learn to whip up pasta, ragu and fish dishes like mama used to make. For spectacular views of this iconic coastline, trek some of the 150 miles of trails along the Sorrento and Amalfi coast with a variety of guided hikes.
How to Get There
we only had one of the cheaper rooms so no view from the balcony, but that didn't bother us, the rest of the hotel was great and staff really friendly and brilliant, cant fault the service food or location
We stayed at the La Favorita for three nights and enjoyed our stay there. Beautiful property, very well maintained and the rooms were pretty spacious and immaculate. Bathrooms were nice and spacious as well. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The hotel is also very conveniently located near the main square with lots of restaurants and shops in walking distance. It is also located very close to the marina if you are planning to take the boat to Capri from Sorrento. I will definitely go back to La Favorita if I am in Sorrento again.
The room was lovely, the service was verging on the obsequious and the rooftop bar with views over the bay to Vesuvio was exceptional. Breakfast was outstanding. The balcony to our room did not have any view at all, so probably worth getting a sea view if you want to look out, but it was not really a chore to go up to the roof.
This is an amazing hotel located in the center of Sorrento. Easy to walk everywhere and the staff is welcoming and informative. The rooms are pristine and everything was well maintained. The breakfast had tons of options as well. Would stay here again, highly recommend.
Just returned from a vacation to Italy end of October. The Grand Hotel La Favorita was the highlight of my trip. Everything from the fabulous rooftop pool and restaurant as well as the hotel staff it was just amazing. I have been a world traveler of 35 plus years and this has been the best experience I ever had. The hotel rooms are the cleanest I have ever seen and the location can not be beat. Walking distance to the square and Marina Grande as well as many shops and restaurants. I want to thank Mario and his hotel staff for a wonderful stay!
