“AMAZING family trip to Italy...June 2014”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 July 2014

We recently returned from a two week trip to Italy and must say how outstanding the Magi House Relais was. We visited Sorrento for three nights and Mariano, Roberta and Alessandro made us feel at home from the moment we arrived. We were traveling with our 13 year old son and definitely would stay at this property again. The rooftop breakfasts were AMAZING...fresh fruit, juice, eggs made to order, wonderful baked goods, and the BEST Cappuccino every morning!! The staff made our stay in sunny Sorrento one of the best in our two week trip to Italy. Their recommendations for dinner were wonderful and they helped us organize a day trip to Capri. Can't wait to go back!!

This place was truly lifesaving for us after our other Sorrento accommodation fell through. The building and room were beautiful and modern. The facilities were fantastic especially the rooftop breakfast area. The staff were the greatest thing about this b&b. Their recommendations for restaurants were fantastic and they literally helped us with whatever we needed. I would highly recommend this place and can't wait to go back again!

I can't imagine there to be any better places to stay in Sorrento. A truly fantastic stay at the Magi House.

My girlfriend and I stayed for 7 nights and booked the luxury suite (Nettuno), with spa bath. Our whole time there was welcomed with the best hospitality.

Mariano, Roberta and Alessandro were simply awesome hosts, nothing was any trouble. Advice on what to see and do all came with precise detail and enthusiasm and all excursions were booked without any issues - a totally seamless experience.

It’s clear Mariano takes a lot of pride in his work - Magi House is simply a fantastic place to stay. The design, interior and quality of all the furnishings are to the highest standard, which all resulted in truly amazing 7 days.

It is impossible to find any faults. I will be very much looking forward to returning in the near future.

Ciao for now guys……

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.

Dear GoKayla,

first of all, we want to thank you to share your positive experience at Magi House Relais with the other trip advisor members. Your satisfaction after your stay here is the only thing that matters for us.
As you noted, our staff always waits the clients that walks down on the front desk with a smile to transmit them harmony. We are always disposable to give the best suggestion for restaurant and to help the clients to plan their holiday in the best possible way giving more tips also for excursions.
We are located in one of most important and characteristic way of the historical center and it is normal that sometimes there could be some noise but as you mentioned in your review with our sound proof windows, you won't hear anything.
We are honored to read that you liked our breakfast. We serve every morning all fresh home made products and we hope to host you again in our relais maybe in summer in order to let you try our special breakfast on the rooftop.

All the best

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.
