Maison Tofani
Ranked #16 of 100 Hotels in Sorrento
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 25 October 2013

This hotel is small but has an excellent location in the middle of the old town in Sorrento. The hotel was spotlessly clean and the linens were beautiful. The owner is a very elegant lady who keeps a close eye on what's going on. The manager Giovanni is very charming and professional. He speaks excellent English and is a font of information for anything you need to know.
Breakfast was very fresh and there was a good selection.
We were in a loft room (the one in the Photo's) and found it very comfortable with the terrace being a lovely place to sit with our G&T. The shower was small but perfectly adequate to get washed in and the bath had lovely hot water.
We had a safe, a desk and a fridge.
Would definitely stay here again as we loved it. It was great being in the middle of everything and being able to walk everywhere especially to all the gorgeous restaurants in this area.

Room Tip: Did not see the other rooms but ours was very comfortable and lovely and quiet at night

This is an excellent hotel. Like other reviewers, we found the rooms emaculate, the staff very helpful, and the location great. The breakfast has to be the best we have had anywhere and we are global travelers. We would definitely stay here again and, in fact, plan to return to Sorrento -- so we will be back.

Room Tip: We had room 101 -- spacious and lovely but it does face a small street and you could hear traffic...

My husband and I spent 4 amazing nights in Sorrento, all of which we spent at Maison Tofani. Giovanni was instantly welcoming and helpful, we felt taken care of from the moment we arrived. Our room was the biggest room we had while in Italy, and beautifully decorated. While all of these things were wonderful, it's really the location of Maison Tofani that made it outstanding. We were literally within walking distance of any and everything we wanted to do. Fabulous restaurants, shops, and the meeting location for our tours were only steps away. The breakfast was also amazing, with a wide variety of roasted vegetables, meats, and pastries, and don't forget the made to order cappuccinos! I would never stay anywhere else while visiting Sorrento, we had an unforgettable experience.

Maison Tofani was fantastic in every way. It's beautifully renovated with great style and immaculate. Although the hotel is located on a main shopping street, our room was quiet (except of the church bells but nothing can be done about that). The staff was friendly and accommodating and their advice was excellent. But the high point was the breakfast. A wall's length of grilled vegetables and fresh fruit, many grown in the garden of Maria, the proprietor. Another wall's length of pastries and cakes baked by Maria, many filled with jams and compotes made from those fruits. Eggs from her hens. Delicious coffee. And the breakfast room, with its frescoes and high ceilings was gorgeous. We hated leaving. Btw, try Maria's husbands restaurant, La Lanterna- it's excellent and when you mention you're staying at Maison Tofani, they'll put on a real fuss.

We loved this accommodation gem....beautiful clean, large room in a lovely old and creatively renovated old building. It was so wonderful to open the shutters and peer down into the exciting, busy street and shops in the morning, and then close them at night and enjoy perfect quiet. It rained while we were there, but no matter. Giovanni is wonderful, and the decorating guru (Maria) made me give her a try at my home here in Canada. Highly recommend. You will love it.

Room Tip: We had a second floor room overlooking the street and loved it.....

Maison Tofani is located in the small, pedestrianised shopping area of Sorrento. Entering between two enormous wooden doors into a old stone courtyard the ancient appearance of the building is delightful, there was a book for sale at the hotel detailing it's history and restoration.

We were shown around the hotel by Nunziana who took us to our room up a few flights of ancient flagstone steps, your bags are taken up in the lift and there is lift access if required. Our room was 104, the room was a generous size, the floor beautifully tiled, with a high wooden ceiling giving the impression of space and light. The bathroom appeared newly tiled with a power shower, double basins and good lighting. Tea/coffee making facilities are supplied with decent size cups, and plenty of wardrobe space and hangers.

When I first sat on the bed I initially thought oh dear the bed feels a little hard however, I was amazed to see it was a new memory foam mattress with pillows of the same. I can honestly say that this was one of the first times we both woke without bad backs in the morning, especially after all the walking we were doing. The bed was incredibly comfortable the sheets and towels were changed regularly and the room was immaculate.

Maison Tofani is basically a very upmarket bed and breakfast. It has a small bar for pre dinner drinks, but it is not a hotel with pool, spa, etc. This is a place to stay and explore the area. There are so many museums and places of historic interest to visit a short walk away, and the hotel supply beach towels should you wish to visit the beaches close to hand.

Breakfast was a generous choice of cooked food, typical Italian breakfast with roast vegetables, eggs, meat, sausage, olives, served alongside more traditional continental hotel breakfast of breads, pastries, cereal, juice etc. It is a self serve buffet in another beautiful room with incredible frescos on the ceiling. coffees and tea are served to you at the table.

Our room being over the main street I was concerned we might have suffered evening noise, but not so. The pedestrianised streets are quiet late at night, but there are two large shutters to close over the window which blocks out any stray noise you may hear. A quiet room and a comfy bed what more could you ask?

We spent four nights at Mason Tofani in October and had a few days rain mixed with sun which enabled us to see all the sights and more. Giovanni the manager was incredibly helpful and also arranged for a guide for Pompeii and taxi's to and from the airport.

Gaetano was our driver who also does day tours to mozzarella, olive oil and limoncello factories taking in the Amalfi Coastlne. We did not get the chance to do that trip but are returning to take in more of this beautiful place, and take this trip where I understand you get to sample the goods!

Giovanni also re-arranged my flights home and they kindly supplied me with a packed breakfast the previous night as I was leaving before breakfast was served, which I felt was very thoughtful.

Overall I would thoroughly recommend Maison Tofani, for the warm welcome, standard of , service and facilities, also it's situation, it is a 10 minute walk to the station and about a 15 minute walk down to the sea being centrally located. It is close to many good restaurants, so taxi's are not required just good walking shoes as the streets are ancient flagstones that can be slightly uneven.

Giovanni and all your staff, thank you for a memorable stay, we will be back!
