“Excellent location, staff, and accommodations”
Reviewed August 16, 2013

We stayed at Magi House for just two nights and it couldn't have been more delightful. Mariano, the owner, was on site on Sunday morning helping to serve us breakfast and chat over the home made food. Organic, fresh, and lively, the breakfast and the entire staff was extremely helpful and full of recommendations- all of them well made. Roberta, Marianna, and Barbara are wonderful- we were so happy with our stay. Would definitely recommend it.

Room Tip: Don't think you can make a bad choice!

Our family of 5 stayed at the Magi House in 2 rooms for 4 nights at the end of a two week vacation in Italy. We loved every minute of our stay at the Magi House. Of all the hotels/places we stayed in Italy during our trip, the Magi House was head-and-shoulder above all. The rooms are luxurious, beautifully decorated, spotless, well-furnished and equipped, as well as comfortable like those found at 5 Stars Hotels. It has a superb and central location which allows you to get to the beach, restaurants, shopping, sightseeing, and transportation hubs easily within a few minutes walk. The staff here is simply terrific, from owner Mariano, Roberta, Analisa, to the handyman whose name I've unfortunately forgot. They all went out of their ways to make us feel welcomed and to make our stay as comfortable as possible. The boat tour to Capri and Positano, which was reccomended to us by Roberta, became the highlight of our visit to the Amalfi Coast. The breakfast every morning is fantastic in terms of quality and variety. My daughter still craves for Analisa's pancake in the morning. While Venice, Florence, and Rome were all fantastic and unforgetable, Sorrento and the Amalfi Coast was our favorite stop and the experience is enhanced in no small part by Magi House. We love Sorrento and its people. We would definitely stay here again.

Thank you very very much to have saved your time to speak about your stay at Magi House, is fantastic hear from you that our service can be compared with a 5 star hotel, this means that we have done a great job.

The best part is the good work done from all the staff, they work as their best to render your stay the best possible.

When we arrived at reception earlier than check in to drop of bags, to when we departed on a similar favour we were greeted by the smiling and helpful Roberta. Accomodating at every opportunity we were made to feel very welcome and the service was impeccable. The rooms themselves were modern and spotless, breakast was very good where we met the very pleasant owner. You have to try their recommended restaurant Donna Sofia...we were with some friends whose father was Italian and knew Italy very well, and said it was the best she'd ever had, high praise indeed!

I can't fault Magi House, if I were to return to Sorrento I wouldn't hesitate in staying there again

Room Tip: We had the 'penthouse' so can only comment on that, but it was superb! Private balcony was...

We had an awesome stay at the Magi House. It is impeccably clean and comfortable. We rented two units, the penthouse and the unit beside the desk. The penthouse had a great private patio and easy access to breakfast. The unit beside the desk was very nice- I wouldn't recommend for small children due to the open balcony and stair railings. It was for the most part quiet since it was beside the desk. Roberta, the receptionist is the heart and soul of the hotel. She ensured we had everything we needed, and went out of her way to make us feel at home. Mariana is the comedian of the bunch, who cooks a nice breakfast. We would definitely return! The location is central to everything! Made for some very nice strolls around town :)

Ten of us (6 adults and 4 children) traveled to Sorrento, Italy for a celebratory family vacation. Our stay at the Magi House was absolutely perfect!! They accommodated our every need and went above and beyond to be helpful. Each of our three rooms were beautiful, trendy, and immaculate. The breakfast each morning was delicious. "Mama Mariano" bakes the most scrumptious sweets!! Each and every staff member was warm and welcoming. Mariano was an amazing host. He would go out of his way to ensure our happiness and comfort. Roberta was simply the best!! No matter the question or problem...she had the answer and/or the solution!! The location of the Magi House could not be more convenient. There are great places to eat, shop, sightsee, swim, and soak up the sun right at your doorstep. The Magi House was the perfect home away from home. We will never forget Mariano and Roberta's beautiful smiles greeting us each day!! We all can't wait to "Return to Sorrento"!!

Room Tip: We stayed in the "Vesuvio" and loved it!!

What an awesome location, next to harbour and right in the centre (without street noise due to great windows and doors) Small balcony gives you the true Italian feeling. I`m working in the hospitality business and Magi House does a great job, I can tell :) !! Roberta and her trainee are the best in giving great hospitable service. On arrival she welcomed us outside their building greeting us by name (amazing). Very informative about surroundings and booked a great restaurant for us. We left to early to have breakfast, so they gave us a breakfast to-go, so sweet. We used their safe and secure parking (recommended by Roberta) on Corso Italia EU 15/day. The parking owner brings you to Magi House (normally 10-15 minute walk) All great value for money. Book this one without a doubt!

Arriving from busy Paris, Sorrento was a well needed break. Magi House was a lovely escape in the heart of the shopping area of Sorrento. The lovely girls at the front desk, Roberta and Mariana were always so warm and it made me instantly fall in love with Italy.

We had a small Apartment (venusio) which was a too small for the family and probably suited a couple. Now looking at prices for other holiday rentals it was a little high. We paid €228 per night. However in saying that this is not a hotel rather a private B & B.
Mariano the owner is lovely and greats you each morning at breakfast- even insisted he learn how to cook us poached eggs. The food was made by his wife and mother and was lovely especially the Sorrento
Croissants with lemon.

Great place to stay for your first time close to everything and beautiful people. We will definitely be back to Sorrento again!
