This was a special place. It is a restored palazzo from the 1700s with beautiful modern amenities. The room was very spacious for three adults (my husband and I were traveling with our 20 year old child) was beautifully appointed, immaculately clean and the woodwork on the original doors is painted in a very unique special style. The newly updated bathroom was very large, clean and strikingly designed. Breakfast was exceptional in a dining room with a beautifully painted ceiling. Delicious sweets, cereals, breads, fruit some hot items and very good coffee service. The hotel is right in the middle of town on a touristy shopping street which we enjoyed at the end of October but might be a little crazy during the height of tourist season. We could walk to everything and did. The fishing village had some of the best food we ate during a 10 day trip and we walked to the train station to go visit Pompeii. We loved this hotel and hope to go back soon!
Just returned from a six night stay at this Hotel in a superior room with balcony overlooking the street outside. Being a light sleeper I was concerned about it being noisy outside at night but it was very quiet. We chose this Hotel because of the excellent reviews and they certainly deserve them. Our room was perfect and much bigger than we expected. Breakfast was excellent with a good selection. All of the staff were friendly and very helpful. Less than 10 minutes from the station and same to the Port. Trains and buses fairly cheap and easy to use. We would highly recommend this Hotel !
when we went to our room we where impressed with the height of the ceiling it must have been at least 4 meters high & the size of the room was big, with large window,We had booked the Hotel for 5 nights Giovanni was very help full in planning our days.The breakfast room had a fantastic ceiling with pictures on & was very big with plenty of room to eat also the breakfast had a big selection of food fruit cornflakes eggs & bacon etc, the bed was very comfortable & firm,bathroom was a good size.The only small problem we had was a small sign behind the door which we did not see that said you can not eat or drink wine in your room we where told that we had food in our room which I reply was for eating outside which we did on a very nice patio I found this a strange sign to have in a room which I have not seen in any other Hotel . The sun roof had a good view of Naples & you could sit there & have glass of wine,there was also 2 sun lounges ,If we go to Sorrento again to we would goto this Hotel again,this was a better Hotel then the ones we went to in Florence & Rome
Maison Tofani is a refreshing break in the bustling town of Sorrento. Great attention is paid to the rooms, the breakfast, and especially the guests. They were especially accommodating to help with our luggage. I recommend it highly!
Maison Tofani was a wonderful hotel for our vacation in the Sorrento / Amalfi area! The location is excellent. Our room had a balcony overlooking the main pedestrian walking street in the heart of the city. The rooms are clean and comfortable and roomy. Breakfast was superb. The staff was excellent, always polite and considerate, always seeking to make our stay memorable. Thank you Nunzianna, Maria, and Ross!
This place is fantastic. The location is perfect and all of the staff were amazing and helped us tremendously throughout our 3 night stay. We were upgraded to a roo with a private terrace. The room was tremendous, breakfast was delightful and the rooftop terrace had gorgeous views over the Bay of Naples and Mt Vesuvius. I would also reiterate...
Anyone thinking of visiting Sorrento, Italy, I recommend this hotel highly! The Owner, Maria, is a gracious and elegant lady who is hands on and visible daily for questions or just a general conversation. She prepares a daily spread for breakfast; fresh baked pastries, fresh fruit, cheeses, cold cuts, yogurts, cereals something for everyone. The hotel is beautiful, well maintained and in the heart of Sorrento where everything is within walking distance. Her staff, Luzianna and Giovanni are helpful and knowledgeable about places of interest or tours. I also have to mention, Laro, our driver who picked us up from the airport and gave us some interesting perspectives on the scenery as we were driven to the hotel, a very nice man.
We arrived and where greeted by Giavani checked in very efficiently and the room was lovely and as described one small criticism is that the bathroom in the evening was very poorly lit and we felt some instructions for the shower would have been useful but we had some laughs trying it out!!
I'm not sure there is a better place to stay in Sorrento. The service is great. The breakfast is pretty diverse and delicious. The staff is wonderful (Giovanni and Nunciana in particular), and they offer great suggestions for dinner and excursions. They also just go above and beyond (when I left behind a travel card they were quick to contact me and send it back).
We came here based on the outstanding reviews. The hotel did not disappoint despite high expectations. We used Sorrento as our base to explore the region. We visited Pompeii, Capri, Amalfi coast and Napoli. We were greeted by Giovanni and he made several recommendations regarding places to eat and guided tours to the Amalfi coast. Property: The hotel is gorgeous, in the middle of town. No view of the water but you can't beat central location. The hotel is very clean and the room spacious. We stayed in room 103. Breakfast is excellent and the dinning room is out of this world. Despite being in a crowded street, the rooms are quiet at night since the town dies pretty early. Restaurant recommendations given by Giovanni: The restaurants he recommends are owned by the same person as the hotel. Having said that, the restaurants were not only excellent but reasonable priced. Highly recommended. Trips: We used the driver that Giovanni recommended. His name is Gaetano. He is a trip. Very funny. He speaks English, spanish and Italian. He has enough funny stories to keep you entertained during the quiet parts of any excursion. A tip for adventurous travelers, I think that you don't need a driver in the low season. There is plenty of parking in all the small town in the Amalfi coast. We used the Hydrofoil to Capri and it was great. We felt that a guided tour of Capri was not needed. The trip to Napoli was also great. We were scared from all the stories that we heard, but Napoli is a beautiful city. Especially if you can overcome the chaos and trash. We wished we spent more time there. In summary this is a great hotel and a great base to visit the region.
At Maison Tofani, my husband and I truly felt looked after by the staff. We stayed for 3 nights mid-November and wished we could stay longer. Being budget conscious but wanting to stay at the high-rated Maison Tofani, we opted for the budget friendly Family room. Not much was said about this room in TripAdvisor reviews so I will describe it for the benefit of others. The room is massive (even by our American standards), with a large sitting area, a kitchenette with breakfast area, and full size bathroom. The stainless steel kitchenette included stove top, oven, mini-fridge (in addition to the mini-bar fridge), and sink. There was a breakfast table also present. The bathroom had shower facilities (no tub). There were two small windows, only one of which could open, but it opens to a cubby hole in a wall. We did not mind the lack of outdoor space or view since the rest of the room was so nice. The bed was the most comfortable throughout our Italy trip. It was not very firm like every other Italian hotel bed. The pillows were memory foam. What a treat! The service was top notch as everyone described. On our first night, we arrived at the hotel around 8:30pm and was welcomed by a relieve Giovanni who became worried about our lateness since the Circumvesuvia trains can be sketchy. He explained they normally close the office by then but he waited for us. Thank goodness he did that! The next morning, we were welcomed by freshly prepared breakfast, which included a wide variety of fruit. We had been in Italy a whole week and this was the first time I had fresh fruit...so nice! Maria, the owner, even brought out a mini cake in the shape of a heart to help us celebrate our anniversary. How thoughtful! We ate some, then took the rest back to our room and kept it in the mini-bar fridge to enjoy over the next couple of days. Just a note to others to plan ahead of checking out early. We happened to swing by the office the night before checking out to let them know we plan to check out at 7am. That is when we were met with a nice woman who had her jacket on and purse and clearly ready to leave for the night. She told us the office does not open until 8am so she will go ahead to check us out at that moment. She set her things down and proceeded with the check out process. How nice of her to stay late just to do that. We only had a few small complaints with the room. One was that the walls were very thin so we could hear noise from those walking by and talking, clanking dishes (maybe from a prep room connected to us), and running water from pipes. Also even though the windows were small, quite a bit of light came through them so it would have been nice to have darker curtains to block out the light during the night and in the early morning. Lastly, the cleaning solution used to clean the bathroom smelled quite strong and lingered about. These were minor considering the overall fabulous experience we had at Maison Tofani. Highly recommend!
We chose Maison Tofani based on Tripadvisor reviews and were not disappointed. We stayed four nights and from beginning to end our experience was a good one. Prior to our trip Giovanni helped by booking transfers to and from Naples airport. Based on the horror stories we have heard from other travellers using taxis from Naples airport this was a good decision. Maison Tofani is a beautiful place to stay. The building is fantastic and our room was spacious and well appointed. The breakfast room is stunning, as is breakfast. Throughout our stay the hospitality of all the staff at Maison Tofani was exceptional. Would we recommend Maison Tofani? Yes, without hesitation.
