We stayed at Maison Tofani in Oct 2013 and it is definitely one of the best places we stayed at during our 4 week long trip to Italy/Greece. Its location is smack amongst the town shops/attractions of Sorrento and within close proxity to food and transportation. The breakfast spread is always a feast (considering the price of our stay) with cold meats, fresh fruit, and even mouth watering pastry and cake baked by the folks there. Till today, I still remember how good the chocolate cake/pastry tastes! The folks there are very friendly and helpful. Was lucky enough to meet the nice owner of the place who was most hospitable to us. I suppose good service starts from the top. Many thanks to the awesome crew at Maison Tofani for making our stay in the Amalfi coast such a wonderful one. Cheers!
Loved staying at the Maison Tofani mid December 2013. Great location (steps away from two squares) and fabulous staff. Not a hotel with any views to speak of - ours was of a lovely old shopping street with christmas lights. Quiet, good bed and great shower/jacuzzi combo tub. Parking Centrale was a great way to dispose of the car until we needed it, and they'd bring it right to the square adjacent to the hotel or provide rides to the garage. We originally planned 2 nights, but extended to three because of our experience there. Nothing beats Signora Maria's included breakfast feast! She prepares items daily, including choice vegetables and fruits from her garden. The restored maison is really beautiful. We were unable to have the same room when we added a third day, and honestly the "family" room with kitchenette was not as nice as the original double superior we enjoyed our first two nights. The loft rooms were too low-ceiling for us to choose. Wireless note: request one access code per device you need to connect with. Accessibility note: no elevators. Would definitely return to Maison Tofani on a return trip to Sorrento.
Stayed here for three nights and absolutely loved it. Staff was very friendly and helpful, anytime we needed any instructions they couldn't have been more helpful. The room was beautiful with a mosaic flooring, clean white bed linen and comfortable bed. Location of the hotel is fantastic as it is right in the centre of Sorrento village. Also we were given vouchers for Maison Tofani's sister restaurants in town. We tried both and absolutely loved the food! Highly recommend Maison Tofani!
Ohhhhh! Every time I think of our stay at this hotel, my heart fills with joy and nostalgia. What a great time we had there! We and my fiancée, now husband, got married in Sorrento in Oct 2013 and I’ve booked Maison Tofani for my “getting ready “ venue and also for the first part of our honeymoon. Giovanni, who is in charge of the Hotel, made us feel very welcomed and was extremely professional. He help us getting around and suggested some beautiful restaurants! Not only that, Giovanni pretty much salvaged my wedding day and for that I will be eternally grateful :) The Hotel is beautiful and very well decorated. And even though it sits in a very busy narrow road, full of shops and restaurants, the nights were very calm. The heavy door and double glazing also helped with soundproofing. Everything was spotless clean and the service was fantastic. I went to quite a lot of hotels, on business trips, but Maison Tofani by far the best hotel I stayed! The breakfast bar is impressive and will make you want to stay having breakfast for a few hours. And please try the cakes, who are baked by the lovely owner Maria! They are delicious!!! Maria also kindly baked me the yummiest cake I\'ve ever had on my wedding day! Maria, thank you very much for your great hospitality! I felt like I was at home. Could have not wished for a better service from you and all your staff. Thanks for all you have done for me and Michael, leading to the wedding day! We will never forget you and Giovanni and the amazing time we had at your beautiful hotel! Sorry it took me so long to leave a review, but I was waiting for the professional photos. I have included some here, but I will be sending you a little gift very soon :) Baci Cristine + Michael
So many great reviews have been written about Maison Tofani in Sorrento, Italy and each one has its own merit. What sets Maison Tofani apart from other hotels is the lovely owner of this fine establishment and the attentive Staff who are instrumental in creating an atmosphere of serenity through their fine service. Signora Maria is a very charming, elegant and compassionate woman who takes great pride in her home. Her attention to detail creates a beautiful boutique hotel where you feel pampered and happy. Maison Tofani is absolutely gorgeous! We stayed for a week in February and enjoyed every moment of it. We completed our booking and tours through the website and the great Giovanni, who is such an intelligent and organized individual. He is so personable and a real gentleman. He was helpful in every way and an all- around fine person with a positive attitude and good sense of humour. We were picked up at the airport by dear Lauro. What a sweet man. He spoke a little English, I spoke a little Italian, but we were all able to communicate. He was a great driver and a guide as we stepped into his vehicle at Napoli Airport. Several days later, we took a tour of the Amalfi Coast and were guided by Gaetano. Gaetano should have his own comedy show! He is very knowledegable, very humorous and I believe he knows every single person in southern Italy! It was a fabulous tour and my tummy ached from laughing so much throughout the tour. Gaetano is a real gem! The staff at Maison Tofani were always smiling and ready to give suggestions or assistance when needed. Tony, Vladi, Olga and Ras are a terrific group of people and added to the atmosphere of comfort at Maison Tofani. I may be forgetting a name or two in terms of staff recognition and I do apologize for that. The Junior Suite in which we stayed was magnificent. It is tastefully decorated with a very comfortable bed, plenty of storage space, an amazing bathroom and everything is absolutely immaculate! I love the high wood-beamed ceilings. It made the suite feel spacious and palatial. The veranda was lovely as well. To open the veranda doors in the morning and hear the morning sounds of shopkeepers opening their stores, the chatter of children on their way to school and others walking and talking on Via San Cesareo made me smile and feel like a local as my ears absorbed the musical sounds of a Sorrento morning. Colazione/Breakfast was a feast for the eyes and palate. Signora Maria’s talent in creating the most delicious cakes, tortes, cookies, and sweets is glorious! She has her own garden as well and offers up the freshest grilled vegetables, which I enjoyed immensely. There is so much offered at breakfast, you simply want to try it all. Back to her baked goods. My favorite sweet was a lemon crème cookie, which consisted of two layers with lemon crème between it and then middle was studded with nuts. I yearn for that cookie right now as I write this review! My husband gave me the biggest Birthday surprise ever during one breakfast. He sat there across the table smiling at me and I smiled back. He just kept smiling and the next thing I knew, in comes the entire Maison Tofani staff, led by Signora Maria carrying a beautiful pink and white birthday cake, followed by Tony carrying a champagne bucket with a bottle of Pommery Champagne and bouquet of flowers. I could not believe what was happening and then the staff sang Happy Birthday to me in Italian. Well, I could not help but shed tears of joy from this gift from my Husband and the sincere warmth of the staff. I was stunned, but in the happiest of ways. Each staff member hugged me and I cried some more. The other guests at breakfast applauded and I sat there in awe. It truly was the very best Birthday surprise I’ve received and I am so grateful to my Husband and Maison Tofani for making me feel so incredibly special! We stayed a total of seven nights and upon leaving, I honestly felt like I was leaving family. Again, more tears flowed as we hugged our goodbyes The folks at Maison Tofani are genuinely kind, compassionate, and know the secret of excellent service. I miss being there already, but I know one day we shall return!
My wife and I stayed four nights at Maison Tofani and we totally agree with all the other positive reviews - the hotel and the people are outstanding. Although we were in Sorrento in the off-season, in February, and we had plenty of rain, we had a wonderful time. The room was elegant, quiet and comfortable. The owner Maria Tofani was charming and prepared an excellent buffet breakfast for everybody. She was also very kind and patient and helped us with our efforts to speak in Italian. The manager Giovanni is in his 30s but very experienced and could not have been more helpful with restaurant and travel advice. We also appreciated his arrangements for parking our car - as the hotel is in a building in the centre of old Sorrento, on a narrow pedestrian street, the car was parked about a kilometre away in an underground parking. We were then taken to and from the parking each day in a courtesy car - really very good. Another lovely touch - Giovanni saw that it was my wife's birthday and informed Maria, who cooked my wife a delicious birthday cake and presented it to her at breakfast time - very impressive and most kind.
Si bien no pudimos disfrutar mucho Sorrento por el tiempo lluvioso que nos tocó, el hotel resultó mejor aún que lo que esperábamos. La habitación era grande, muy linda decorada, con vista lateral y con todas las comodidades, incluyendo una pava eléctrica siempre útil para preparar un té sin tener que salir. Por formar parte de una casa donde también hay otro hotel, la sensación es estar viviendo en un departamento independiente más que en un hotel tradicional, lo cual tiene también su encanto. El salón para desayunar está preciosamente decorado y el desayuno es muy completo. El personal es muy amable. Sorrento es pequeña por lo cual todo está muy cerca, incluyendo la estación de tren, desde donde se puede viajar a Pompeya y Herculano y desde donde se pueden también tomar los cómodos buses que van por la costa amalfitana. Nosotros estuvimos tres noches en Sorrento y dos en Nápoles, pues para visitar museos y otras atracciones interesantes de esta ciudad nos pareció más conveniente que viajar una hora y media en tren desde Sorrento. En este sentido creemos que esta es una mejor opción que la que muchos recomiendan en Internet, lo cual supone quedarse siempre en Sorrento y desde allí visitar Nápoles.
After 1.5 weeks in Florence and Rome, we received the warmest welcome and vibe at Maison Tofani. The staff, super clean and comfortable rooms, and delicious breakfast made this our favorite hotel of our entire trip! We will definitely be back!
Our recent 5 night stay at Maison Tofani exceeded all expectations. From the location to the cleanliness to the staff, every need was meet before we even asked. Giovani provided us with a fabulous tour guide who took care of us like royalty. He made sure our sight seeing was planned so we had NOTHING to worry about. Our room included an amazing view of the shops, tempurpedic mattresses and pillows, a Jacuzzi Tub and towel warmer as well as robes and slippers. Each morning began with a great assortment of breakfast items in and exquisite dinning room. If we ever have the chance to visit again we wouldn\'t think twice about where to stay. Thank you Giovani and the rest of the staff for such an amazing experience :)
The hotel is in the heart of Sorrento , Rooms are good , Breakfast is very good .But the most important point is personel feels you at home if you didnt arrange any think just ask for Giovanni he will arrange everything . Its better to call before u go there
I, my wife and little boy (22 months) had a wonderful week at Maison Tofani in March 2014. Giovanni, the elegant Maria and the team could not have been more hospitable to us. They made our little boy truly welcome. Great breakfast, good suggestions on things to do and lining up a fantastic driver to/from airport and for a day trip (Gaetano - recommended). Lovely place to stay.
Giovanni was the perfect host, heading a friendly, helpful staff, in a very nice hotel. Giovanni\'s touring suggestions made our visit to Sorrento the best we could have hoped for. The room was lovely, the breakfast was great and we would stay at this hotel whenever we come to Sorrento.
