The Romans, with their unfailing eye for beauty, were among the first to appreciate the spectacular scenery and temperate climate of "Surrentum", perched on the cliffs of the Sorrento Peninsula along the famous coastal road known as the "Amalfitana". The long history of the Grand Hotel Excelsior Vittoria is reflected in the unique fin-de-siècle style of the building. The interiors are tastefully decorated and contain original antique furniture including beautiful pieces, crafted locally, with inlaid decoration. The Excelsior Vittoria is a historic Grand Hotel comprising three different blocks built between 1834 and 1880. Precisely because of its unique layout, the Hotel is able to offer a generous selection of rooms with a variety of features.
The Grand Hotel Excelsior Vittoria and its terraces, famous for their breathtaking views over the Bay of Naples, have played host to many celebrities and discerning travellers including Kings and Queens, Artists (Richard Wagner, Enrico Caruso, Jack Lemmon, Marilyn Monroe, Sophia Loren) and other notable personalities attracted to Sorrento and the surrounding area.
Five acres of private garden with citrus and olive trees also contribute to make the Excelsior Vittoria a unique hotel. There is a a large swimming pool in the grounds, with an orange grove nearby, where guests can bathe and relax in the Mediterranean sun. From the main terrace, a private lift descends directly to the pier in the harbour below, where sight-seers can easily hire a motor boat for an excursion along the beautiful coastline of the peninsula, or take a trip to Capri, Naples and Ischia on one of the many jet boat and hydrofoil services, which operate daily. With its unique charm and history, and excellent meeting facilities (capacity up to 250) the Excelsior Vittoria offers a perfect venue for guests looking to combine work and leisure.
Almost all rooms have a terrace or a balcony overlooking the Bay of Naples or the beautiful hotel grounds. All rooms have private bathroom, air conditioning, satellite TV, minibar, safe and direct-dial telephone. The historic suites are tastefully furnished with original period furniture and have a terrace looking out over the Bay, affording splendid views and spectacular sunsets.
The "Enrico Caruso" suite, very much in demand, retains the same décor and furnishings as when the famous Italian tenor stayed there for more several months, in 1921. The "Pompeii" Suite is decorated with frescoes inspired by the most handsome villas in nearby Pompeii. Among the spacious accommodations are also the "Suites degli Aranci", overlooking the orange grove, and the romantic "Vittoria Suite", with terrace on two sides.
