“Amazing & Refreshing Stop in Sorrento”
Reviewed 25 June 2012

I loved Maison Tofani -- we tried to get in for more than one night, but they only had one night available during our time in Sorrento, so we took that based on the value of the reviews on Trip Advisor. I just had to try it. We stayed in the family room and were amazed at the quality of the room, the hotel, the staff, and the next morning -- the amazing, homegrown, home made, southern Italian breakfast. it was a feast for the sense -- an array of hand made cakes, fresh tuna, home grown lemons, fresh orange juice -- a wide array of fruits & vegetables and breads that simply made your mouth water. The property itself is a lovely old mansion -- a very elegant home converted into an equally elegant hotel. There was a jacuzzi tub, spacious room, comfortable, clean beds -- the location is wonderful -- within walking distance of great restaurants, many small (though touristy) shops, nearby lemon/orange grove, and a short walk from the coast. Lovely.

I booked two rooms at Maison Tofani back in November 2011. Our stay in Sorrento was part of a special trip to Italy I had planned for my family that was to celebrate some significant milestones in our lives......I chose Maison Tofani after reading so many glowing reviews on tripavisor.....

Long before we arrived at Maison Tofani in early June I had about a half dozen e-mail contacts with Dileta and Giovanni regarding our pending arrival and stay. After each e-mail I felt (wheher it was regarding room set-ups or walking directions from the train station to the hotel) as if they truly cared about welcoming us and making our stay as special one....

From the moment we arrived, Dileta and Giovanni took care of our every need, answered every question, made tour and dining suggestions (all of which were spot on) and were just flat out fun to talk with....But it was not just Dileta and Giovanni...I quickly became evident that Maria (the owner) has made sure that the entire staff at Maison Tofani is professional, friendly and personal...They were all great...

The rooms were very clean, and very comfortable....The setting is beautiful, especially the breakfast room with a fresco on the ceiling.....The breakfast was wonderful....We had the honor of meeting Maria each morning at breakfast...Maria is warm, personable, friendly and wonderful to talk with....One morning at breakfast I made a comment to Maria that the baba she had made for the breakfast reminded me of the baba my Zia from Napoli used to make us as children and how muched I missed them....On the morning we left Maria had waiting for me a special order of baba that was to die for....A personal touch that I never expected.

While the Maison Tofani is beautiful, clean, comfortable and perfectly located, it is without a doubt, for us, that it is Maria and her staff that have us not saying that we would recommend Maison Tofani (Which we do recommend 100%) but has us saying "how soon can we get back to Maison Tofani".

We stayed for 3 nights in the hotel in loft room where we could enjoy a bit of the seaview on the little balcony. We were traveling with a 14 months old baby so we were happy that the room is more isolated from the rest of the rooms as babies will cry sometimes : ). The first night we had some problems with noises on the rooftop garden as people were enjoying some food and listen to music outside and our room was just next to rooftop garden. With the help of Giovanni the problem was quickly solved. Rooms are really clean. In the room there was no water boiler so we had to go twice a day downstairs to get hot water.
Breakfast was nice, a lot of fresh fruit and pastries. The first day there was no baby chair available but the days after Maria could arrange a baby chair so we were happy about that.

We stayed for 4 nights in a spacious room with no balcony/view (cheaper than the other rooms, so a more affordable option). The staff were all very friendly and Giovanni the manager was very helpful, hardworking and keen to ensure we had a great stay.
Breakfast included fresh fruit, cereal, eggs, meat, cheese, pastries, cakes, yoghurt etc and you can eat in the beautiful breakfast room, or on the terrace in the sun.
Loved the hotel cat too who greated us each night when we return to the hotel :-)
Highly recommended!!

What a beautiful place to stay. Giovanni and his staff looked after our every need. Even before we arrived he organized our transfer from Naples to Sorrento. He advised us on tours to take and they were all great. The rooms were very comfortable and clean. The house is stunning especially the beautiful fresco on the ceiling in the breakfast room. It was lovely to be greeted each morning by the owner, Maria, when we arrived for breakfast. This is a delightful place right in the middle of the old city and close to everything . We hope to visit again sometime .

This hotel is a little delight. It is a small hotel, so it feels cosy, it has history and charm and a bit of luxury which is always nice after along day. We had a loft room with a little balcony, a real sun trap, which was lovely. The room was so cosy with a stunning bathroom, though the spa bath had a bit of a life of it's own!. The breakfast room has a stunning fresco celling, though we opted to take our breakfast outside, couldn't miss out on the sunshine. Lots of choice for breakfast with home made breakfast cakes, which were yummy! The location could not have been better, just step outside and there you are in the middle of it all. If we ever have the pleasure to return to Sorrento we will be coming back to stay at Maison Tofani again. P.S they have a very sweet cat in residence!

This really is a nice place to stay.

The people are as friendly as one could wish for, the room was very spacious and comfortable and the breakfast both extensive and tasty. The location is great for restaurants and transport, but, if driving, don't try to find it (it is in the pedestrian area) simply get to the centre of town and then telephone - they will come and get you.

All in all, this is where we would recommend staying in Sorrento.

Room Tip: Check your windows are shut when trying to sleep as the locals go to bed late.
