“Make Yourself at Home at Palazzo Montefusco”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2013

Immediately upon arrival we know we were in for a treat. Along with the two other couples that were staying at Palazzo Montefusco (four rooms in total), Ivan welcomed us in the breakfast area, introduced us to the staff and provided a warm orientation to both Sorrento and the B & B (much more upscale boutique hotel than B & B). I asked Ivan where I could find the best espresso in Sorrento and he said, "right here of course." And moments later indeed the best espresso in Sorrento was in my hands. This was reflective of the kind of service and hospitality that the staff of Montefusco provide.

We stayed in Room 202 a junior suite and the room was almost perfect. Modern in design, spacious, with dynamic lighting (Ivan is a lighting designer by profession) this room was by far the best we experienced during our time in Italy. Our road overlooked the Corso Italia (the main road in Sorrento) and initially I wondered if the noise would make sleeping difficult. Not to worry - the windows design is flawless. Well done. We also had a small balcony that overlooked the street which provided pleasant views particularly during the evening when the Corso Italia is closed to auto traffic and reserved for strolling.

I need to mention the staff for they are the heart of Montefusco: Lina, Marika, Giovanni and Serphina (her cakes are to die for - make sure you partake during breakfast). Each of them had a servant's heart and sought to make our experience the best it possible could be. They were helpful with restaurant recommendations (make sure you go to Miccio for dinner and Franco's for pizza) schedules for the boats to Capri and Positano and little details like the quickest and easiest ways to get from point a to point b. As well, on our day of departure, Giovanni walked us to the train station (10 minutes), helped us bypass the long line at the ticket counter by going to the shop next door where there was no line and literally got us on the train. Even in the last moments of our stay we felt cared for and valued.

Room Tip: Room 202 was excellent - enjoy the balcony

We found this "B&B" on Trip Advisor and it did not disappoint. It is more of a boutique hotel than a B&B however Ivan informed me that Sorrento has very specific categories so it is classified as B&B. Regardless this place was the highlight of our trip to Italy! We spent time at Westin and St. Regis in Rome and Florence, however neither impressed us the way Palazzo Montefusco did. Thank you Ivan and team for the most hospitable stay we could ever ask for. The reviews on here are 100% accurate, this is the place to stay in Sorrento. Centrally located as well.

Room note: We had the suite on the 1st floor. We loved it, however if you are a light sleeper you may prefer to be upstairs. It is right beside reception and can get loud in the morning.

Room Tip: 1st floor suite only if you don't mind some morning noise. It is beautiful!

I chose this location because it was in central Sorrento with parking close by and a very short 5 minute walk to the train for Pompeii, Herculaneum, and Naples. What a surprise to find this well furnished, luxury hotel with breakfast cooked to order. The staff is extremely knowledgeable and prints out routing for all your trips by car or train or boat to Capri, etc.
The owner lives close by and has spared no expense in upgrading these units to make it a 5 Star experience. At breakfast everyone staying there was really glad they had chosen this hotel.
You could not be in a better location to enjoy the Amalfi coast and in fact we never moved our car for the 3 days we were there. On our last day we drove to Ravello, which is magical and then to Rome for our flight home..

Room Tip: All of the rooms were spacious and upgraded with air conditioning and great free wifi. Leather couc...

My husband and I stayed here for our wedding in September and words cannot fully describe how truly amazing this place is you have to experience it! From our first reservation e mail until we were in our taxi leaving the staff were exceptional. The rooms are beautifully decorated,the food is amazing,freshly prepared and baked everyday.The location is right in the centre of Sorrento but you wouldn't know this from inside as its perfectly quiet, and all the staff and owners Ivan and Fabiana are wonderful. They really went out of their way to make our wedding special and treated us like family...we will be returning very soon as this is the best place I have ever stayed in!

My wife & I were on our dream 3 week trip of a life time, touring almost the entire country of Italy. We had been to Rome, Florence, Sienna, Venice... But, when we got to Sorrento & The Palazzo Montefusco, we were immediately treated like family. From the thoughtful phone call and text to offer assistance, to the personal reception at the train station, everything was 1st class, warm and accommodating. Our slightest whim was catered to with enthusiasm and careful attention. The owner Ivan and his staff were exceptional in every way. Fantastic dinner recommendations and generous help making complicated train reservations. All this great service and the place was beautiful and in the perfect location.We loved it!

Palazzo Montefusco was our home away from home for almost a week in Sorrento. The location in central Sorrento proved to be perfect, not so much for the view, but for the opportunity to dine in a variety of fine restaurants and walk about at night without being captive to a property or having to take taxis to get into town. Most importantly, we were greeted by the staff with warmth, assisted in every way possible, and had the opportunity to get to know owners Ivan and Fabbiana and their beautiful children. And the rest of the team, Lina, Marika, etc. were helpful, extremely courteous and warm. Breakfasts were varied and delicious (a tough act for us to follow when we got home!). The decor is modernistic and very comfortable. The shower in our room was snug, but Ivan assures us will be expanded by next year. Other rooms had larger facilities. Housekeeping was superb as everything was immaculately clean. The central location is conveniently located within walking distance to the train station making access to Naples, Pompeii and Herculaneum very easy. I heartily recommend the Palazzo Montefusco to anyone seeking a restful, modern, clean, comfortable and quiet setting in Sorrento, and a place certainly meriting being considered a home away from home.

My wife and I spent four days at Palazzo Montefusco and were not disappointed in any regard. You can believe all of the great reviews that you read, because they are true. The Hotel has a great location right in the middle of Sorrento with easy access to the whole town and to public transport (buses, trains, boats, etc). The staff are incredibly helpful, generous, and friendly and can give you advice for just about everything in many different languages as well. For those who want to learn a bit of Italian, Ivan is a patient teacher who loves to talk about his favorite place (Sorrento) and who has turned this busy corner of Sorrento into a quaint, tastefully decorated, modern hotel. The breakfast is excellent, the rooms are immaculate, and we would come back in a second.
