walking distance to town with amazing views. However if you are looking for miserable reception staff and the worlds worst breakfast then this for you. Such a shame as this is a family hotel since 1963 and obviously not moved with the times. Seem to us that they cater mostly for coach parties.

This hotel is everything you need from Amalfi and more! I traveled here back in July of 2003 despite the date at the bottom. It was my first time ever traveling to the famous coast and this hotel always seems to stick in my memory. It was finished in typical Amalfi style, with a humble but gorgeous lobby and a... More

The hotel is right on the waterfront and only a few minutes walk from the bus station, boat landing and the town. It's a 4 star hotel but the decor is very dated (felt like being in the 1970s) but overall very clean. The room was big and the bed comfortable. I had a balcony that looked out onto the... More

We were very pleasantly surprised by this hotel. Fantastic location right on the waterfront and within walking distance to the town, restaurants, buses, shopping, tourist attractions etc etc. Staff were really helpful and very friendly. Great room with a balcony and good wifi. Would certainly stay there again.

The staff was friendly, the view of the ocean from my balcony was amazing, restaurants were 3-5 minutes walking distance, had its on private access to the water. The Circumvencia line stops a block a way from the hotel, so if you... More

This is a wonderful hotel with fantastic views of the harbour of Amalfi, and very close to the central square. Very helpful and courteous staff, and very accommodating. Fantastic rooftop patio to enjoy a wonderful evening after dinner! My room was spacious, very clean and comfortable. Had a terrace, very well suited for enjoying the views and great local wine!...
