“Loved this place”
Reviewed 6 July 2011

This is the only place to stay in Amalfi - right in the heart of things, with the sea in front of you. Not all rooms have sea view, but insist on it, and pay the extra. Lovely terrace for breakfast - staff extremely friendly and helpful. Just pull up outside if you are driving, and they will park the car for you, and they just bring it back when you are ready to leave. Good windows meant no problems with noise, but balcony allows perfect view of all the activity on the front. Boats to Capri, Isschia, Positano leave from quay 5 mins walk away. Square with church literally right behind hotel, 1 minute walk.

Arrived by ferry from Salerno. Could see our hotel as we arrived. Just a short stroll from the pier. Reception was very welcoming and shown to our room which had a balcony overlooking the sea. Nicely decoratedwith good size bathroom.Went to sleep and awakened to the sound of the waves. The best asset is the location of this hotel. It really is ideally situated close to the main square and sightseeing bus leaves from accross the street. On occasion it can be a little noisy but never found it a problem . Would really recommend this hotel and will for sure return to Amalfi and wouldn't consider staying anywhere else.

The location of this hotel is both a blessing (in the middle of Amalfi) and a curse (no parking, very noisy). It is a **** hotel, and rates are steep, around € 220 a night. Plus € 20 for (valet) parking.

The rooms are not very spacious, the bathroom are downright small: a bit weird to put in a jacuzzi that occupies 3/4 of the tiny bathroom. With no shower curtain, so a water ballet is ensured.

Beach is just steps away, but it is a 'dirty sand' beach, small and pretty crowded. The pier with ferries to Positano and Capri is just across the street too.

Breakfast is very basic, but on a nice terrace overlooking the sea. And disturbed by the noisy traffic (esp. motorbikes).

There is free WiFi in all rooms, but with the thick walls, connection is dodgy at best.

Hotel is beautiful, historic on the outside and inside!

Not all staff is comfortable speaking English.

The staff was wonderful and very helpful. The hotel was so close and in a great location. The only downside to the sea view is that it's also a street view at the main intersection in town. Lots of scooters. Ask for a room away from the street for a much better stay.

Room Tip: Skip the sea view since it's so noisy

Spent three nights here. Great location on the sea front, across from where the Sita buses stop. Our large room was at the front but was still quiet at night. Beds were a little on the hard side with the standard concrete Italian pillows. Decent, if a little limited, breakfast served on a balcony overlooking the ocean. We had a drink there one evening. It seemed to come a shock that anyone would come up there at night. The desk did tell us they were trying to develop it as a bar area but they didn't seem to be having much success. Generally service was very friendly. A good choice.

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view - noise is not an issue.

This place has lots of character, and is situated right in the centre, fronting on to the harbour. Our room, which was very comfortable, overlooked the town square, while breakfast was served on a lovely terrace overlooking the Med. Good range of choices for (continenetal) breakfast too. Staff on reception very friendly

Located opposite the beach, both free and private beaches. Large, comfortable room overlooking the ocean. Breakfast was decent, free wifi (although there was a 10 minute timeout on each session). I really nice place to stay, and Amalfi, the town, was fantastic.
