I would normally never not show up at a hotel I've booked but Holidays Baia D'Amalfi proved the exception. Arriving by car, from the terror of the coast road into the complete chaos that is central Amalfi on a Saturday afternoon in peak season is an experience I never hope to repeat. There was nowhere to park anywhere near the hotel. In the huge buspark/ferry terminal on the quay, we struggled to dodge packs of tourists not watching where they were walking, tourist buses pulling out without care, motorscooters dodging in and out of everyone - this was chaos on a grand scale with nowhere to park, let alone unload luggage or to find our accomodation. On further exploration, the only access to the hotel which was visible was in a tunnel on a narrow, busy road with nowhere to stop, let alone park in safety. After driving in and out of the area for the best part of an hour and a half we gave up and realised that we had no alternative but to find alternative accomodation which was very disappointing. Nowhere on this hotel's website or on Booking.Com is this problem of access for visitors arriving by car addressed. People need to be informed that this is a problem when travelling by car and booking this accomodation in high season. We lost 150 euros but at least we are alive to tell the tale.
