Everything about this hotel is wonderful, starting with Giovanni at reception he is very helpful giving directions prior to arriving to personally showing the room.It also has a lift.One of nicest place we stayed in Italy & Greece. Best breakfast!!! Maria in the restaurant grows & prepares all the food, very fresh & delicious, huge variety cakes as well. I would highly recommend this hotel in Sorrento.
Maison Tofani is the Trip Advisor #1 hotel is Sorrento and deservedly so. The hotel has an excellent location, has excellent support staff, excellent rooms and an excellent breakfast with one of the best cappuccinos we had in Italy. We will stay there again when we return in the future.
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.
