Imperial Hotel Tramontano

Neapolitan Riviera, Sorrento

  • A 4-star traditional hotel in Sorrento with leafy gardens, private swimming pool and terrace

  • Authentic Neapolitan cuisine served in the sea-facing restaurant

  • Traditional rooms are elegantly decorated and incorporate the hotel’s historic features

Rising out of the rocks of the Sorrentine Peninsula, the Imperial Hotel Tramontano gives you a wow factor the minute you set eyes on it. Set amid lush grounds, the 4*hotel is equal parts style and sophistication, and promises an excellent holiday.. 

Located in the historic heart of Sorrento on the Neapolitan Riviera, Imperial Hotel Tramontano embraces its unique heritage. Once a popular stop on the Grand Tours of the 18th and 19th centuries, the hotel has played host to many illustrious writers, including Byron, Shelley and Keats. And we can see why - the stupendous sea views over the Bay of Naples come complete with Mount Vesuvius in the background. Surely that’s enough for anyone to get poetic!  

The hotel’s gardens are one of the reasons why we love this place so much. Designed in 1888, the gardens are home to many rare, centuries-old Mediterranean and sub-tropical plants. Picture yourself on the hotel’s wonderful bar terrace, an aperitivo in hand, surrounded by the scent of lemon trees and Camellia blossoms. Wonderful evenings are assured.

The tranquil pool means you don’t ever have to leave the grounds, but if you fancy a dip in the sea, then why not make a splash by taking the hotel’s lift down to the bathing platform on the beach? The platform also provides easy access to the port and is a great departure point for visiting the rest of this stunning area, including the nearby (and gorgeous) Amalfi coast. 

The Imperial Hotel Tramontano is an ideal retreat for couples who like to embrace the finer side of la dolce vita. 

The hotel has 109 rooms (official rating 4 stars). Child prices apply to ages 2-12 ages.



Bars & Restaurants

One of the great things about holidaying in Italy is that you are guaranteed to eat well! Dining at Imperial Hotel Tramontano is a treat for both the eyes and the tastebuds - the hotel’s restaurant Don Alfonso overlooks the Bay of Naples and has one of the best views we’ve ever seen. Treat yourself to some authentic, home-cooked, Italian cuisine as you enjoy watching the twinkling lights of the town come alive below.


Guests can sip a Limoncello in the traditional bar or on the bar terrace overlooking the Bay of Naples , as well as enjoying cocktails and fine Italian wines.

La Terrazza Poolside Snack Bar

Choose from a range of light snacks, including fresh Italian olives and homemade breads, as you take in the tranquil hotel gardens. 


The Hotel Imperial Tramontano's elegant lounge offers an ideal place to relax and has direct access to the sea-facing terrace with stunning views.

About the location

Sorrento is set in the heart of Italy’s Neapolitan Riviera and is one of the loveliest towns on the coast. Palatial hotels nestle comfortably next to typical Campanian restaurants serving gnocchi alla Sorrentina, while busy, buzzy shops line the historic streets. Imperial Hotel Tramontano’s ideal location in the heart of Sorrento means you only have to step outside the grounds to find yourself in the romantic, lemon-scented alleys that thrive with life. Once you’ve enjoyed a spot of shopping - the region’s ceramics are particularly noteworthy - recharge with a latte or limoncello in Piazza Tasso and watch the world go by. 

Sorrento is the perfect jumping-off spot for visiting the rest of the Amalfi Coast. An excellent waterbus service will take you to any of the nearby must-see places such as Positano and Capri. Culture vultures will not want to miss a chance to visit Pompeii, just a short 30-minute train (or taxi) ride away. If you’re after more cosmopolitan charms, Naples is just over an hour by road.

The Neapolitan Riviera is famed as one of the world’s most beautiful coastlines, and we wholeheartedly agree!
