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.
We arrived in Sorrento early and were unable to enter the hotel as they are only there until 11am, which we did not know at the time. We found the lady at the shop just outside the entrance very helpful as she called the owner and he showed up a few minutes later. He seemed somewhat put off by us having called him as we arrived early, but it was just because he wasn't prepared and really didn't want to keep us waiting. The rest of the trip he was very helpful and friendly. Great location, as it's close to the shopping, marina, train station. The room was clean, roomy, had a large bathroom. The only downside was there were no windows, aside from one in the ceiling. They have free wifi but it doesn't work very well in the rooms so you have to sit near the door or in the bar area of the entrance. While we would not return to Sorrento, as it was not for us, if we did we would definitely stay here again. Great hotel.
When staying in Sorrento with my boyfriend, we chose La Magnolia. It is right in the heart of the city, around all the night life. It was a short walk to the water/beaches and close by to some delicious restaurants. The breakfast every morning was great, the service was okay although the language barrier made things a little uncomfortable, but that is just as much our fault as the inn keeper. The B&B is located amongst many lemon groves which made it very scenic and beautiful. At times, it was a little noisy. Overall, a great place.
My wife and I (over 55) just spent a wonderful week in Sorrento, where we stayed in the Hotel La Magnolia. It is a 10 minute walk to the Circumvesuviana (don
