Grand Hotel La Favorita Sorrento - Review

Welcome to HaloTrip.blogspot.com | This is my review of the Grand Hotel La Favorita , Sorrento , where I stayed anonymously inwards March 2016.


The 5-star Grand Hotel La Favorita is an elegant airy oasis inwards the crowded pump of Sorrento. It doesn't accept the large views or clifftop place of Sorrento's other posh hotels (it's a block inland too its persuasion is partly blocked yesteryear some other hotel) but it offers prices which tin hold upwardly really reasonable for a hotel of this standard.

I booked the hotel online for 2 nights at Easter , too paid €358 for a double room for 2 nights. At the too hence central charge per unit of measurement it worked out at virtually £144 per black , hence for a span sharing it would accept cost £72 per somebody per black - practiced value for a five-star hotel.

My double room was really large , with a beautiful local-style tiled flooring decorated with birds too geometric motifs. There were other touches of local trend inwards the decor , including an elaborate lamp-stand - too fifty-fifty the spare-toilet-roll holder was a spell of local pottery.

The room faced due south , away from the bounding main , too was overlooked yesteryear a residential building. Some of the to a greater extent than expensive rooms on upper floors create accept a partial bounding main persuasion , but I had opted for a 'classic double'.  A broad individual terrace had 2 sun-loungers on it , every bit good every bit a tabular array too chairs. Despite the lack of bounding main views , it would accept been a pleasant house to relax - I was deplorable it was raining when I arrived.


The spell of furniture was fashionable too splendid lineament - unusually , in that place was to a greater extent than of it than was truly necessary. I had no detail go for a folding-leaf painted tabular array , though I suppose for room service (reasonably priced) it mightiness come upwardly inwards handy , nor did I ask an elaborate old-fashioned writing desk , though it was lovely. It was all rather William Morris - everything was either useful or attractive.

The to a greater extent than practical furnishings included a larger modern desk , convenient for working , with a powerfulness socket too wired internet.  There was a mirror inwards a higher house the desk , too a full-length mirror on the door of the broad wardrobe , a TV , 2 armchairs too a depression tabular array , bedside tables , a travelling steal stand upwardly , condom too a mini-bar. The bed was really broad , made upwardly of 2 large singles.  Everything was modern too well-designed , with the all-important powerfulness sockets on both sides of the bed , along with lighting controls too buttons for opening too closing the blind over the large windows.

The bath was large also , with twin washbasins , soft white towels ,  a bath with a practiced shower inwards a higher house , an extendable clothes describe of piece of job ,  and to a greater extent than bird-decorated tiles.


The hotel provided issue mineral H2O bottles (still too sparkling) , slippers , toiletries too dressing gowns. In the evenings in that place was a turn-down service too chocolates beside the bed. The issue wi-fi seemed to piece of job throughout the building.

I constitute this a really peaceful house to sleep. The room was upwardly a niggling dead-end corridor amongst ane other room. The hotel has virtually 85 rooms , I believe , but the layout meant in that place wasn't much through traffic or dissonance from other guests.

The Favorita's populace spaces are really large. H5N1 bar with lots of white leather seating , a large restaurant/breakfast room , a huge foyer. The hotel is dotted with objets d'art. There is an attractive garden terrace with lemon trees , seating too signs to a 'secret garden' - a shady terrace. On arrival I was given a voucher for a welcome drinkable - truly , since I was paying for a double room , I got 2 welcome drinks. So that was a span of visits to the bar , sitting too working with a drinking glass of Prosecco too nibbles.


The hotel is inwards the centre of Sorrento , conveniently closed to the town's best views too to a lane downward to Marina Grande , at the bottom of a lane descending from the cathedral. It's walkable from the railway station inwards virtually 10-15 minutes , though on a busy twenty-four hr menses you lot mightiness honor your means impeded yesteryear irritating tour groups. Print out a map to assist you lot navigate.

I didn't dine inwards the hotel eating topographic point but I did consume at a eating topographic point which belongs to the same household unit of measurement , 'O Parucchiano on Corso Italia , where guests accept a 10% discount. This was a remarkable house with room for hundreds of guests inwards a serial of garden pavilions.


Breakfast at the Grand Hotel La Favorita was ane of the best I've seen inwards Italy. H5N1 large buffet included cakes , biscuits , pastries , breadstuff too rolls , abode made jams , cereals , fruit , yoghurts , fifty-fifty delizia al limone ane day. There was a cooked  breakfast selection of bacon , sausages , scrambled eggs too also cheese too ham slices , tomatoes too other savoury items. H5N1 chef was on standby to brand omelettes , pancakes too fried eggs on demand. The entirely affair I was disappointed inwards was the fruit drinks; Italian hotels ever serve sweetened watered-down juice instead of the freshly-squeezed version.


As I was visiting good earlier the Italian summertime flavour , I idea the hotel's roof terrace was closed too it was entirely when I went to expect at it , on deviation , that I constitute it was truly open. The terrace was absolutely idyllic , too it was plenty to brand me want I'd splashed out on a longer stay. It was early on eve , too the streets of Sorrento were shadowed too increasingly cool. But upwardly hither in that place was yet warm sunshine , a bluish  swimming puddle (that was closed) , sun-loungers where a span of guests were reading books , too an elegant seating expanse closed to a bar , with views to Vesuvius , too over the rooftops too domes of Sorrento. It was heavenly. The idea of beingness able to retreat from the busy streets upwardly hither with a mass or laptop made me deplorable to hold upwardly leaving. I wished that I'd constitute the terrace sooner - perchance the receptionist should cite it to guests? - but the previous evenings , inwards March , may accept been also mutual depression temperature anyway.

I truly enjoyed staying at the hotel. It was large too non peculiarly personal. But service was practiced , rooms too populace spaces were splendid , too it made a luxurious haven when I came inwards from a tiring twenty-four hr menses out , or from the bustle of Sorrento. It's a practiced selection for for a 'special' vacation - a honeymoon perchance , or romantic intermission - or merely a comfortable base of operations , with 5-star standards at an affordable price.
