Great Hotelfrom A TripAdvisor Member
The room was really clean, and the hotel staff friendly and helpful.
The restaurant overlooks the gardens and the food is of good standard.
The hotel has a pool and bar with adjacent terrace which are so peaceful you are tempted to spend your entrire holiday at the hotel relaxing!
The main square of Sorrento is only a short walk away, the town can be busy but the hotel is a perfect retreat if you don't want to sample the vibrant artmosphere of this enchanting location in one of the world's most beautiful places.
Excellent - would not hesitate to use againfrom Frostycat
The only reason I have given this hotel 4 stars and not 5 is because no ironing boards were available, not even to borrow. However, I would definitely stay here again because of the pleasant helpful staff and the unrivalled position, giving the best of both worlds, ie proximity to the town and stunning views across the Bay of Naples.
One of the nicest hotels in Sorrentofrom Giovanna
excellentfrom A TripAdvisor Member
last September and had an excellent 5 night holiday. We wanted a hotel close to the town with sea view and balcony (my mother wanted to sip champange on the balcony looking out to sea, she had her wish).
We had a very large bedroom ample room for 3. It's worth every penny to have the view. I couldn't complain about anything. We had a fantastic time the staff were extremely helpful we would definately go to Sorrento and this hotel again.
Staying here almost ruined our holidayfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Dont get me wrong, the location and the view is absolutely stunning - however, so are many other hotels in Sorrento.
We spent part of our Amalfi Coast holiday in the Royal and it was awful (very 'carry on campers', lorry loads of Coach tourists, bland - slightly tarnished rooms, rude management staff and you had better pack your nylon clothes as no ironing facilities - you have to pay and it takes 24 hours to get your clothes back!!
For an additional £20 per night you could stay at the Excelsior - an exquisite hotel with wonderfully friendly staff - a better location and equally wonderful view. Definately the best hotel I have ever stayed in and will never forget!
The view at the Royal is great but the same as other hotels and is no way near enough to make make staying there bearable

Everything we expectedfrom A TripAdvisor Member
It was a perfect spot as just a short walk to Sorrento's centre which wasn't as noisy and busy as I expected and anyway is pedestrian only after 7pm. Most of the sides streets cannot take vehicles so it was very pleasant shopping.
As we booked independently I arranged for 'Sorrento Limo' to for our airport transfer. Our Driver recommended the restaurant 'Villa Rubicanna' next to the Hotel Eden (in the same road as the Royal) It had pages of food and the house wine was only 6 euros, and an enormous pizza was only 5 euros and it was full of the locals. I would also like to recommend 'Sorrento Limo' as both our drivers were excellent and gave us a guided tour, history lessons and plenty of advice for our visit just to & from the airport! The local railway is a very cheap way to travel.
Best place for a cuppachino is Bar Fauno in the square where you can people watch and try to understand Italian driving rules. Your coffee comes with little cakes and your beer with nibbles and also it has the most impressive spotless loos in Sorrento.
As for the Royal we plan to return. Any faults? If I was being really picky a couple of extra towels would have been nice, but I'm sure that they would have been provided if we had asked. And as it was our Silver Anniversary, some recognition of this would have been nice. And the rooms are pricy but you get what you pay for.
Sorrento is a brilliant place for sight-seeing and shopping but don't expect beaches or a hectic nightlife. We plan to go back.
Beware of Excessive Traffic Noisefrom A TripAdvisor Member
While the standard room was clean and well appointed, it could not have been much smaller. Worst of all was the excessive traffic noise from the road below. The twice weekly collection of empty bottles from the kitchen area at around 4 am was also most unwelcome.
The message is simple - if you are going to stay at this hotel, make sure you reserve a sea view room, whatever the supplement!

Top Local Tips for Sorrento
Arriving and departing Use the Curreri bus to and from the airport because it is very inexpensive
Pompii Be sure to visit pompii.. it's a 40 min train ride away
Don't drive from Naples Driving a nightmare - better taking the ferry or train (hotel minutes wallk from train/ short taxi/bur from ferry) better value in the long run.
