“Amazing Place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 June 2014

We couldn't have been more pleased with the attention we received while staying four nights at the Magi House. Alessandro and Roberta were our travel guides and they never missed with any of their suggestions. We loved our spacious room and the amazing breakfasts..delicious homemade pastries, fruit and eggs made to order!! We would highly recommend this place for a stay in Sorrento.

My girlfriend and I stayed at the Magi House for 4 nites as part of our 10 nite vacation to Italy. We are well seasoned travelers, and our stay at the Magi House was one of the best travel experiences we have ever had! The accommodations are 5 star. The location in the old part of Sorrento is charming and very convenient, and Mariano (the owner) has done a fabulous job with the property. Our room was modern, comfortable, and beautifully decorated. Allessandro and Roberta (front desk) are remarkably friendly and helpful. The homemade breakfast on the rooftop (prepared by Barbara) was delicious, and a perfect way to start each day. The Magi House has set a new standard for customer service! We look forward to returning to the Magi House. If you are looking to stay in Sorrento--look no further.

Room Tip: The rooms are all great!

We booked Magi house based on the glowing reviews and were not disappointed, in fact we left even more impressed that we thought we would be.

The b&b is situated right in the heart of Sorrento, on a pedestrian only street. Great location.

We stayed in the Nettuno room that had just opened (we were the 2nd people to stay there) and it was brand new. The bathroom was sparkling with a beautiful double shower, the room spacious but the best part is the seculded outdoor terrace complete with hot tub. The hot tub wasn't plumbed in for our arrival but we still enjoyed lounging outside on the terrace, enjoying the peace and pretty views. The room is at the back and so you don't get any noise.

Breakfast is just right - from the amazing cappucinos to the freshly baked cakes - with a lovely view over Sorrento from the terrace.

What really makes Magi house amazing though is the fantastic service. Every person we met - from front desk, to the cleaners, to the luggage porter, to the owner - always greets you with a huge smile and genuine friendliness. They are caring, thoughful but above all sincere and genuine with wanting you to enjoy your stay. I was celebrating my birthday when we stayed - everyone knew and wished me a happy birthday. They even baked me a cake with my name on it (with my very favourite flavours which they had found out from my husband) and didn't charge us for it. It was the very best service we had in our entire trip in Italy.

Thank you to everyone at Magi house and we would recommend this place to anyone without a moments hesitation.

Dear Pontypool,

thank you for sharing your positive experience in our relais with the other trip advisor members.
You have been one of the first clients that booked our new creation, our gem, the jacuzzi suite "Nettuno". We are sorry that the hot tub was not plumber but we hope that you have enjoyed at full your great private terrace.
We are pleased to read that you liked our "special" breakfast. As you tasted, we prepare every morning several fresh kind of pastries, croissants, pancakes, selection of fruit, not forgetting that in addition to the products that you find on our buffet we can make istanly eggs.
When we knew from your husband that wanted to prepare something for your birthday we did not hesitate to help him to make special that day.

We hope to left in your mind a good memory and we will be glad to have you here again in the future maybe in summer in order to have the possibility to relax in our jetted tub.

All the best

My wife and i just returned from a month-long Italian Holiday, where we spent 5 nights in Sorrento at Magi house. The property is beautiful. We stayed in the Penthouse room and it is unique, with its two story loft kitchenette and a private balcony. The location is perfect. The owner and staff are absolutely the best!. Be sure and reserve your spot, EVERY morning, for the fabulous breakfast served on the rooftop deck! You will be amazed! Magi House is absolutely the best boutique property we have have experienced in our varied travels.

Room Tip: Although there is an attached spa, we did not utilize the services. We were in the Penthouse apart...

Dear David W

thank you for your nice words. Your review is a starting point to improve us to do always even better.
The "Penthouse" apartment that you have chosen with its private terrace is the most romantic. You can enjoy intimate moments outside drinking something and feeling the fresh breeze of the evening.
We are glad to read that you have been surprised of our breakfast. Our target is to let start in the best possible way every day that the clients spend with us.
We are proud and honored to be the best boutique property of your varied travels and we will be pleased to host you again in our relais.

All the best

My wife and I had a wonderful five night stay stay at the Magi House at the end of May. The facilities are outstanding and breakfast on the roof terrace was a great start to the day. The customer service from Mariano, Alessandro and Roberta was impeccable. Their friendliness and attention to detail in every aspect means that our experience was more like family hospitality than staying in a hotel, and we can give it no higher recommendation.

We spotted Magi House during our first visit to Sorrento and thought we would give it a go, we were welcomed to the hotel with open arms.
The room was perfect and having its own private balcony just added to the overal experience.
The hotel is based pretty much bang in the middle of Sorrento making it ideal to see all the small streets and fantastic resturants nearby.
Breakfast is brilliant, fresh juice water cake etc, double espresso's for clearing the head after trying the Limoncello.
The staff are the best polite, helpful, and perfect english.
I have to say it was one of the best small city / town hotels I have ever stayed in.
Thank you all so much and look forward coming back

Dear Stephen G,

Thank you for sharing your nice experience in our Relais with the other trip advisor members.
We are pleased to read that you have chosen one of our most romantic accomodation, the apartment with the private terrace that is located on the rooftop.
As you mentioned in your review, we are located in one of most suggestive ways of the historical center where you can reach the most important public transport and attractives shortly by walk.
We are glad that you have appreciated our breakfast. There is nothing better to clarify the ideas after the Limoncello and start the day with a coffee and the fresh morning breeze.
Thank you again for wasting a little bit of your time to dedicate us these kind words and we are looking forward to have you here again in the future.

We wish you all the best

My husband and I just came back from a 5-night stay at Magi and would highly recommend this hotel. We stayed in the Dominova room. The room was super clean, had a great shower and a nice view of the street below - the bathroom lighting was a little dark, but that's a minor detail. The location of the hotel is great - so easy to get around, and very close to the beach area. Breakfast was fresh and plentiful, with tasty homemade goodies. The staff was so helpful, flexible (they let us check out a day early so we could catch a train early the next morning) and personable. It's very clear that the owner wants to provide a good value for the money and ensure a stay that will make guests want to return.

Dear Jofmc,

thank you for your review. It is very valuable because you give us the possibility to let know better to the other trip advisor members in which way we always take care of all client's needs.
As you mentioned in your opinion, we are located in the most characteristic way of the historical center of Sorrento far just 50 meters from the lift that could bring you to the beach and the port.
We are pleased to read that you you were able to try our breakfast buffet full of fresh homemade products on our rooftop.
The owner is always attentive to every small detail to be sure that the clients have everything they need and we hope that we left in your mind a good memory in such a way to choose again Magi House in the future.

We wish you all the best.
