This was a really good find and we were impressed with it's central accessible location allowing us to take numerous boat and coach trips up and down this amazing coast. I believe this is the only hotel in the town where you can get a taxi to the front door. The view from our third floor room was amazing, over... More

I stayed there in mid-July. It was very, very warm and humid. Had a very nice balcony view and the location was across the street from the ocean and had a great view of the whole area. My only concern was the room was very tight (I paid for double occupancy)and the shower was so small that when I stretched... More

We stayed here for one night since our alternate accommodations had no air conditioning or fan during what seemed to be a heat wave. The room we stayed in had a balcony that faced the street/ocean. The room itself was very simple but clean. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly even when we didn't ask for help. We had... More

This is a lovely hotel and we loved our stay here. The staff were helpful and friendly. We stayed in a room with a balcony and a sea view. Although it was a bit more expensive, it was worth the money as the rooms at the back are a bit pokey, and look out onto a cliff face. One of... More

This hotel is clean, quaint, perched at the edge of a cliff, overlooking the harbor and beach. It is perfect location for hopping the boat to Capri, Ana Capri and Positano. Becky at www.beachbumvacation.com did a great job planning our vacation !!

Becky from Viaggi Italiani booked our wonderful trip and she told us this was her favorite place to stay in Amalfi. We understood from the start. The owner of the hotel showed us to our rooms. The free breakfast was nice and we were so close to everything in town that we could walk. Near boats and ferries that took... More

The only thing that I will remember as positive about this hotel is that it has a parking. The place is old, that's all. If an investor or a main hotel brand would invest and rebuild the place, it could be a gem once again.
