Charming B&B in an excellent location! Reviewed September 28, 2010 Spent 5 nights at La Magnolia....and would go back in a heartbeat! Easy short walk from the Sorrento train station, about 1/2 block from Piazza Tasso which is the heart of town. Easy stroll to old town without having to drag your suitcase thru the busy, narrow streets of old town! Very nice antique-looking wood furnishings, wood floors, newly tiled large bathroom with a clear glass circular shower, comfortable bed, very clean. Charming terrace to enjoy your continental breakfast of cappuccino, croissants and orange juice. Hostess Jenny took very good care of us and is so pleasant and friendly. Host Carlo is very friendly too, and both of them made us feel very welcome to their town. We found this to be the perfect location! Short walk to the train station for a day trip to Pompeii, short walk to catch the bus down to the port for a day trip to Capri, & a stroll down the hill to Marina Grande. Walk 1/2 block to Piazza Tasso so you can stroll thru the town in the evening eating your gelato. Great restaurants in the old town, especially Gigino's! Be sure to take a look at the ruins in the little valley right across the street from La Magnolia. I highly recommend La Magnolia for your stay in Sorrento. Jenny & Carlo.....we hope to come back to Sorrento and we'll definitely stay at La Magnolia again!
Loved La Magnolia - great service and location Reviewed September 20, 2010 I stayed at La Magnolia with my mother on a 5 week trip to Europe. We thoroughly enjoyed Sorrento and La Magnolia. Carlo was a great host - very gracious and helpful. The hotel is in a great location with a fruit shop right outside and only a minute's walk from the centre of town. Great shopping and right near the port and train station - definitely recommend traveling via train as the port demands a good hike up a hill ( via many stairs) or a taxi ride with suitcases. We had a room with a skylight window which initially was a slight dissapointment, as you always hope for wonderous views etc as a holiday maker, however the room was great otherwise and the lack of views were very much compensated for by the excellent standard of the room and bathroom (large by Europe's satandards, well appointed, including charming wooden inlaid panelling in the doors and furniture which the area seems famous for, plus was very clean) and the great patio/balcony which we made good use of in the afternoons to blob and write diaries and read the local magazines and guide books from the hotel reception. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend La Magnolia to anyone. Carlo is a very thoughtful and helpful host. He kept an eye on the weather forcast for us when we wanted to do a day trip to Mt Vesuvius and even provided crockery and glasses for us to enjoy our takeaway pizza and local wine with on the patio...perfect!
Great Location, nice furniture, comfortable bed Reviewed August 22, 2010 Carlo (the manager) was helpful and friendly
Excellent hotel! Beautiful, clean, convenient. Reviewed June 2, 2010 We loved La Magnolia!! The location is excellent--it is just off the town's main square and is walking distance to the two marinas, train station and shopping. This hotel was extremely clean--spotless. Plus, it was very well decorated. Our room was huge, probably the biggest room we stayed in during our trip. It also had a mini-fridge, which was nice. The price was very reasonable as well. Breakfast was nothing spectacular, it was packaged pastries, but everything tasted good. The cappuccino was really good, though. The hotel provided train and ferry schedules, plus the restroom was well equipped with a hair dryer, extra soaps and shampoos, and plenty of towels. The one complaint I would have would be the noise. Our room was right next to a busy street, so we could hear cars, motorcycles, and even pedestrian's conversations. But the other perks more than made up for the noise. We highly recommend LaMagnolia to anyone visiting Sorrento!! Stayed May 2010, traveled as a couple
convenient location, very clean, very unique, old and pretty Reviewed May 19, 2010 Travelled with my mother, and the hotel is small and historical and the room was lovely, breakfast was a bit of a rip off, but we went elsewhere. Stayed April 2010, traveled with family
Carlo runs this wonderful little hotel. The rooms are very clean and have tv, fridge, air con, hairdryer in the bathroom. Breakfast was served outside on the patio area and nothing was too much trouble. I would recommend anyone to visit this beautiful part of Italy and the Magnolia is walking distance to the main piazza and beach. Thanks to Carlo, I will definately be going back next year.
