Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 7 July 2014

We stayed in Magi House in June this year while we were in Sorrento to get married. Mariano, Roberta, Alessandro and the rest of the staff were amazing, they made our stay so stress free in the lead up to our big day and made sure my wife had everything she needed. I would recommend staying at Magi House to anyone who wants to go to Sorrento and wants to be in the centre. The rooms are beautifully decorated and kept clean and we'll maintained.

Our room was fantastic!! Mariano was there when we checked in, and welcomed us. Alessandro is the best!!! He did a great job of making sure our visit was great. Breakfast in the morning on their rooftop deck was a really nice way to start the day. If/When we return to Sorrento, we will definitely return to Magi House. Great place....great location. Enjoy it

I cannot imagine why anyone would give Magi House less than 5 stars! My husband and I stayed with Mariano for 3 nights in April and just cannot say enough about the entire experience. What a pleasure it was to walk down to the front desk and visit with Roberta or Allesandro - so helpful with all of our questions. And it seemed that every time we came or left the hotel, the owner, Mariano, was sitting out front there to greet us and see to our every need.

The room was fabulous - beautifully decorated, beautiful and stylish bathroom and so clean. We were so impressed with how well the sound-proof window worked. When we walked in, the window was open with a nice breeze, but some street noise was coming in. I walked to the window, closed it, and absolute silence. Seriously! We so appreciate details like that.

Other small details that show the difference...a printed card in our room showing the weather forecast during our stay, an umbrella to grab on a rainy day, help with arranging dinner plans (definitely try Donna Sophia for dinner!) and a boat trip to Capri.

Unfortunately due to the weather, the breakfast terrace was not open so we "had" to have our breakfast delivered to our room. What a breakfast! We were given a list to choose from and choose we did...fruit, pastries, meats, cheeses, cereal, coffee, cappuccino. It all came on time, beautifully arranged and delicious. We were leaving early on our last morning so they packed us a "to-go" breakfast and surprised us with it.

I cannot recommend the Magi House more highly. Best of luck to Mariano - your attention to detail on behalf of your guests will bring you much success! Best regards from Kayla and John.

Magi House embodies everything that one would expect while on vacation. The rooms are beautifully designed and maintained. The staff and owner are incredibly nice, helpful, and thoughtful with their recommendations. Alesandro and Roberto are phenomenal. It's location is great...right in the middle of shopping and gelato!

My family and I stayed 4 nights in June 2014 as part of our 3 week trip. We were in the Vesuvio apartment and also had the Sirene room. Vesuvio and Sirene are in the same section of the B&B so it was very convenient for a family. Though, Magi House is small so all the rooms are only a few steps away from each other. The rooms are modern, well maintained, very comfortable. The bathrooms are fantastic. Vesuvio has a small well-designed kitchen. If you want to cook, you definitely can. Lots of cookware and even a good size refrigerator. The sleeping area is on the 2nd floor up a spiral staircase but there is a pull out couch on the main floor which was very comfortable. Its not a big room, but the layout makes the room very useful. Sirene is more of a typical hotel room. The size is about what you would find in NY.

Breakfast is your typical European fare (variety of baked goods, cereal, yogurt, fruit, eggs made to order, selection of teas and coffee).

I am well traveled and my work finds me in luxury hotels (St. Regis, Four Seasons, Le Meridien, Intercontinental...) Magi House is comparable to luxury hotels and in many ways the personal service exceeds what you would find in many big hotels.

I strongly recommend Magi House. I can't wait to go back.

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
