Maison Tofani
Ranked #16 of 100 Hotels in Sorrento
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 30 June 2013 via mobile

We have just returned from a 2 week trip to Sorrento and the Amalfi Coast and Maison Tofani is without doubt the clear winner of the 4 hotels we stayed in.

The hotel is a beautiful building, you feel like royalty when you're eating the delicious breakfast (which was the best we had in Italy by the way - nowhere else was I eating two cakes every morning!). The room was big and the bed so comfortable, a powerful shower in a spacious bathroom. We only booked a classic room so I can only imagine how amazing the superior rooms must be. There is a lovely roof terrace with a shower for when you don't fancy heading down to the beach and paying €16pp for a sunbed.

The staff were all very friendly and helpful, Giovanni gave us plenty of good recommendations including hiring a bike and heading out of Sorrento to Nerano one day which we really enjoyed.

This was the best hotel we stayed in during our time in Italy - I've just stepped off the plane home and already can't wait to return!

We stayed here on our recent trip to Italy that included Venice, Florence and Rome.
This was without a doubt the best hotel that we stayed in during our 2 week trip.
The location is exceptional, with balconies overlooking the charming via San Cesareo. It is an easy walk from the train station.
The room was spotless with a comfortable bed.
The staff - particularly Giovanni - were always friendly, helpful and accommodating, with useful tips to make our touring easy.
The breakfast was delectable, many items grown in the owners garden. The attention to detail given to everything that was served was second to none.
Sorrento is the perfect home base to stay at for touring the Amalfi Coast and Pompeii.
If there was a rating higher than Excellent, this hotel would deserve it.

Room Tip: We booked the loft room but only stayed in it one night. The other 4 nights we were upgraded to a su...

This hotel was situated less than a 10-minute walk from the train station in one direction, and the marina in the other. The room was clean, spacious and comfortable and included a small kitchenette and a safe. They serve an amazing breakfast in a nicely-decorated room. What we liked most about this hotel was the staff. They were extremely helpful and friendly, which really makes a huge difference (helping with directions, recommendations, and travel arrangements). We'll be staying here again.

The good: gorgeous, spacious room and breakfast area, excellent location. Walk to train & harbor. Most succulent breakfast, with perfect cappuccino made to order. High end linens. Friendly, knowledgeable staff. The less than perfect: air conditioning so-so (it was hot outside), shower made noises on its own at odd times, breakfast 8 - 10 impedes an early start.
Also: it's a B & B, not a hotel, so the office locks up somewhere around 9 PM. The ugly: you can't drive here and it's hard to find. Small ped only street. So if you do want to pick up or drop your car, they call, you wait. But while you're there much better to take train to Herculaneum & Pompeii. They were nice & gave us a little break on price at the end due to our complaints on the car hassles.

...otherwise everyone will want to stay here and we'll never get a room again! Just loved it here. It might be a small hotel but the attention to detail is faultless. I loved the building, which is a converted palacio and the fact it was so central. Our room and bathroom were large and spotless and the bed was sooo comfy. Everyone was friendly. Special mention must go to the manager Giovanni who was welcoming and very helpful. The breakfast also deserves a credit (now on a diet!).

We will definitely stay here again. If we can get a room!

My husband and I spent 3 nights in this beautiful hotel. This hotel is right in the heart of Sorrento. Our room had a balcony overlooking the little shops below and it was like stepping back in time. Our room was huge, super clean and absolutely beautiful. Breakfast was the best we had in our travels. So many choices. I would highly recommend this hotel if you are staying in this beautiful city on the Amalfi Coast. Giovanni was very gracious and helpful with any questions regarding the area. A GREAT hotel and we loved Sorrento. I already want to go back. Thank you Giovanni for making our stay one of the best on our 3 week trip.

Just spent an evening in this hotel in early June and regretted not staying longer. The hotel is small, however what it lacks in size it more than makes up in service and character. The manager, Giovanni is extremely warm and helpful and you are made to feel welcome. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the breakfast selection was great. Overall this hotel more than justifies its excellent rating!
