Magi House Relais
Ranked #4 of 145 Sorrento B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 9 May 2011

Our friends and us booked 2 apartments at Magi House for a week during our trip through the Amalfi Coast. Both were extremely well designed and thought out, with comfortable beds, large modern bathrooms, and well equipped kitchens. We stayed in Mediterranea, the newest apartment, with an acrylic floor in the bedroom that overlooked the living area. Our friends had the Vesuvio, overlooking the street. Both were quiet and cool. We loved the sunny rooftop deck, and found it a welcome retreat after a day of sightseeing. The location couldn't be better- lots of restaurants and shops within steps of the front door. The staff at the front desk were always cheerful and ready to help with questions and advice.
Altogether a fabulous alternative to a hotel. They also have B&B rooms as well.

Room Tip: Worth the extra $ for an apartment!

My husband and I almost stayed at one of the hotels on Via Capo and once we got to Magi House, we were SO glad we didn't. We were able to walk everywhere comfortably. The staff were incredibly helpful and friendly. The room was clean and modern. We will stay here again on a return trip to Sorrento.

Magi House is in the heart of the old city.

Rooms are very clean and done to a high spec.

Magi House's staff are friendly and were very helpful to accommodate our requests with moving to the penthouse on the last day of our stay.

Magi House is a cross between a boutique hotel and an aparthotel. Its situated on a pedestrianised street in the heart of Sorrento. On the map it looks like its a block away from the sea-it is, but the sea is beyond a large cliff so is a ten minute walk away.

The downstairs of the building is shared with a beauty salon and when we arrived the reception desk wasn't manned, meaning we had a wait of around 10 mins till someone was alerted to our presence. All the rooms have different names and themes-ours was called Syrene and was well decorated in contemporary designs. It was quite a small room but adequate.

The hotel had a nice roof terrace with views out to sea which was nice. Breakfast is provided at a restaurant just up the road but we didnt have this as left early the next morning. The hotel is situated yards from a number of bars and restaurants and could be noisy, particularly for people who want to go to bed before midnight. Closing the windows would exclude most of the noise though and the room does have A/C so this would be an option.

Upon leaving, again the reception wasn't manned so we had to summon someone to leave the key with. Perhaps the owners could provide a locked box for this purpose?

In summary, the hotel is clean, modern and centrally located. For Sorrento we found it was quite well priced though in the scheme of things that doesnt make it cheap!

We spent 3 nights in the Magi House in the Vesuvio suite. Mariano, the owner, was the most gracious host. The apartments were immaculately clean and very luxurious and the Vesuvio suite fit 4 people comfortably. We will definitely be back and will look no further than the Magi House for our next trip to Sorrento!
Thanks Mariano

Magi House in Sorrento is affordable, clean, modern and ideally located just off Tasso Square. We rented the Mediteranea apartment for 4 nights. There were only 2 of us, but having the kitchen and additional space was great! And at the price, is was a real bargain!The best gelato in Sorrento is right across the street! It was an easy walk to the bus station and the harbor, as well as the square. It is surrounded by shopping of all kinds, including fresh produce, meats, cheeses, olives and wine. I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again. Ilaria at the desk was extremely helpful whenever we had a question. This is a great value and really added to our experience in Italy. Don't hesitate, book now!

Room Tip: Having a kitchenette was the wonderful

We stayed in Magi house for 4 nights, two in the full suite and two nights in the penthouse. Magi house was wonderfully decorated and extremely clean. Marianna the owner was very welcoming and went out of her way to assist when I was extremely sick. She attended the local pharmacy for medications as my Italian was non existant and provided wonderful recommendation for restaurants nearby. The hotel is in a great location, with quaint little streets and nearby shopping. A great area to stay and a wonderful place to rest your head. I would definately stay here again and recommend to friends and family visiting Sorrento!
