Reviewed 7 April 2012

My daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed staying at Maison Tofani in mid-April. The hotel is centrally located, in an area full of small shops. The staff was friendly and always attentive. Breakfast was plentiful, lots of fresh fruit, delicious breads, meats and cheeses, yogurt--you will not be hungry. The rooms were spacious, modern bathrooms, everything was spotless. When we return, we will stay again. Highly recommend it. They also have several restaurants--we tried the pizza one--sorry cannot remember the name, but it was fabulous.

We stayed at Maison Tofani for 4 nights at the end of March. It is a nice little inn in the middle of a shopping street. Very friendly, family oriented place. Breakfast room was nice and our family room was also large and welcoming. A few negatives though, the family room has a lift in the room itself but the owners controlled it such that it never opened up while we were in the room. However, you can hear the lift moving up and down when people used it so it can be a bit distracting and scary at times when you hear people talking while taking the lift up and down past our room. Another negative is that the pillows are very hard, ok for resting your head but not for hugging or snuggling up to as they are like hard lumps of heavy square foam. Other than these few negatives, the rest of the stay went very well. Thanks to the owners who try their best!

Stayed 4 wonderful nights in family room with small window. Maison Tofani's exceptional service differentiates this hotel from others, which starts with a simple handshake at check-in (how many hotel receptionists do that?!).  Little gestures by the hotel manager Giovanni and his staff, such as making coffee in the wee hours of the morning before the breakfast room opened, were much appreciated.  Great central location on Via San Cesareo to start your shopping and dining immediately.  For those intending to stay, the hotel entrance is not apparent at first glance. When on Via San Cesareo, look for the large foreign Exchange sign on the street (which is next to hotel entrance). There is no hotel signboard marking the entrance, but if you look through the wooden doors next to the Exchange sign into a small courtyard, you'll notice an electronic signboard standing at the left side.   We ate well at related establishments, La Lanterna and L'Abate (preferred the latter).

We spent two nights at the Tofani and greatly enjoyed both the room (bathtub!) and the service. The hotel is perfectly located right in the centre of the old town, and is walking distance to the ferries (if you don't mind a few million stairs). Breakfast was one of the best we had in europe and the breakfast room itself is something to behold.

We recently spent 3 wonderful nights at Maison Tofani. From the moment we booked we received information and contact details to ensure we did not get lost.
The hotel is perfect - the situation in the old part of town provides easy access to all you could want to see. Giovanni and Diletta are very caring and helpful and you are really made to feel an honoured guest.
The restoration of the historic building has been carried out with perfect taste and the attention to detail in all rooms is fantastic.
Breakfast in the dining room is a real delight and all staff make you feel very welcome.
We will hope to return soon!

An impressive high-quality operation in a recently restored historic house in the very heart of the town: I endorse all previous comments, and particularly appreciated the stunning public rooms and the attention to detail in the rooms. Small enough to provide genuinely personal service: they kindly brought the breakfast time forward so that we could catch the 0830 bus to Naples Airport. It was just a little disappointing to have no view whatsoever from our excellent first floor room, which also suffered from a fair bit of noise from the bar below and from the busy pedestrianised street round the corner; and the hotel's outside seating space is limited.

There's a myriad of decent restaurants within a few minutes walk, and not obviously much to help you choose between their near identical menus and formats. But we recommend the Da Gigino (popular with Italians too) and for something a little different the Bufalito.

Giovanni and Deletta are terrific hosts, professional, caring with your well-being in mind. Maison Tofani provided the perfect accommodation while in Sorrento, thoughtful amenities, clean and comfortable. Breakfast was delicious, excellent variety, beautifully presented and served by attentive, polite staff. Interior design of the complete property was charming with period pieces and frescoes set the tone. We will return,...sooner than later!
