Fabulous 8,8 From 94 reviews

Very good 8,0
Comfortable hotel in a convenient location
Ideal location an easy, flat, walk of the centre of Amalfi (3-4 minutes) walk, but just far enough out of the centre to be fairly quiet. The decor is a bit dated and in places there is maintenance to be done (repainting of corridors and stairs) and upgrading the dining room, but this adds to the charm and character of the hotel. Rooms have beautiful views over the marina and out to sea. There is car parking in the garage to the rear which even at €20 per day is fair given the central location. I didn’t appreciate the penny pinching €1.50 daily charge to use the in-room fridge for personal items. There is a small beach 1 minute walk from the hotel and the main Amalfi beach is less than 5 minutes walk. Breakfast offered a good choice but dining didn’t appeal as the restaurant was always empty and is fairly characterless. This is a pity because the restaurant has a stunning sea view.

The hotel location was excellent. It was an easy walk to restaurants, shopping, and the ferry. They had onsite parking and the beach was across the street. The views from our balcony were amazing! The breakfasts were delicious and a variety of foods were offered. We also enjoyed the onsite restaurant.

This is the perfect place to stay in Amalfi. Very pleasant and knowledgeable staff and within 2 minutes walk of the town centre. Right on the sea front with lovely sea views and next to ferry port.

Wanted to love it but didn't
Superb location. Dated and expensive hotel. Staff friendliness was hit or miss. Asked for an iron and they said only housekeeping could iron my shirt. But it was silk so I wanted to do it myself but they refused to let me. I said I would even come downstairs and pay to have it done but I wanted to do it myself. "No" was the answer, no suggestions or recommendations on how I could get it ironed. There was no A/C turned on in the rooms and the radiator was on. It was during a very warm phase in May and it's too close to the street too keep the doors open the whole time. The wifi was abysmal to non-existent. This could be a lovely boutique type hotel but they probably see so many tourists they don't bother.
