The hotel was situated in a great location. Just a few minutes walk from the bus stations and town center. We had the superior double room, it came along with a balcony and the view was fantastic. There were also a lot of choices for breakfast in the morning, which was wonderful.

We took a long awaited tour of Europe and spent 4 days at this hotel. It was the highlight of our tour. It was excellent value for money and the staff were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble, even catering specially for my wife who needs a gluten free diet. The hotel is beautiful in a traditional style... More

We stayed at this hotel from 21 to 24 September 2013. The shower recess is the tiniest I have been in and a person of average size and weight will struggle. On the positive side, Amalfi is an intoxicatingly beautiful part of the world. The view from our room was just stunning overlooking the sea. The staff at reception were... More

Stayed 4 nights on September, walking distance to amalfi centre of town, other than that people very unfriendly. Food alright but would rather have not had a package with dinner included but they wouldn't do it any other way. Would not return to this hotel even know the location was good.

Location, location, location. Its one of the few hotels that doesn't have loads of steps and yet a couple of minutes from the square and the ferry boats. Try and get a terrace room, best view ever! Great staff, especially at reception, real Italian mamas. Anne Marie especially. Room has all you need, including a power shower that isn't quite.... More

Hadn't expected to stay in Amalfi Centro but was pleasantly surprised with this hotel. With the central location and sea view room the value was good. While not updated too recently the room was comfortable, clean and included WIFI and a mini bar. Our sea view room had a small balcony overlooking the the harbor. The staff was friendly and... More

We spent a week in Amalfi for our wedding in June. I was in email contact with Mena for many months planning the menu, rooms, hairdresser-everthing! She was always very attentive and helpful. The hotel is in a great location within easy walking distance to the cathedral. The rooms were clean and authentic with lovely tiled floors. All the staff... More

The hotel was located in an excellent location, and the staff overall worked hard to make sure that your needs were accommodated. I would recommend this place to others, and would stay here again should the opportunity arise. They do try to steer you toward certain things that I think they get a commission on, so beware. Overall it is... More
