My wife and I stayed at this hotel in July 2012. Sorrento was our last stop on a 10 day trip to Italy that also included Rome, Florence, and Venice. We both overwhelming agree that Sorrento and Maison Tofani were the best place and hotel that we visited during our trip. Before we arrived in Sorrento, we reserved a driver from the Naples train station and booked the Capri boat tour and Amalfi Coast private car tour through the hotel manager, Giovanni. All the great things said about Giovanni on this website are true - he knows everyone and every place in Sorrento and will bend over backwards to make sure you are taken care of. We figured that out before we arrived in Sorrento due to a bonehead mistake on my part. I mistakenly left our passports in the hotel safe in Venice and didn't realize it until we were on the train to Sorrento. Rather than turn around, I called Giovanni, and he went out of his way to call our Venice hotel and attempt to arrange delivery services, even contacting his friends in Venice to see if they were coming to Sorrento that weekend. In the end, we had no other option but to head back to Venice, but the effort put forth by Giovanni was outstanding. On a side note, our driver's name for transportation from the train station and for the Amalfi Coast tour was Gaetano Franza. We highly recommend Gaetano - he was entertaining, full of local knowledge, and a great driver on the treacherous Amalfi coast roads (nice car too). As for the Maison Tofani, the rooms were clean and beautifully decorated, and the beds were comfortable. We sighed in relief as we opened our hotel room door - not only was the Maison Tofani the nicest hotel of our trip, it was also the most affordable. It was a great way to spend the last few days of our hectic trip. The breakfast was delicious, and the staff always greeted us with a smile (unusual based on our other experiences). The location of the hotel is central to Sorrento with shops and restaurants up and down the hotel street and surrounding area. Be sure to bring a bottle of wine and some glasses up to the roof for a romantic spot to enjoy the sounds of Sorrento. If we are ever lucky enough to be back in Sorrento, this will be our hotel.
