We had a triple room that came with a very large outside patio with an amazing view over looking the city of amalfi. They have a shuttle that runs you down to either the beach or the town. It is within walking distance of Gerry pub for a great meal and wonderful view. Beautiful views by the pool.

Stayed here a few years ago. It's an old place but clean and tidy. It's way up higher than most other hotels. It did have a shuttle that fairly regularly went up and down to Amalfi. We walked down once, quite enjoyable 1,000 odd steps. Our room was roomy and old fashioned but had a terrace that had a view... More

Room was a good size with a large bathroom. Shower was placed in a strange place over the bath but was strong and hot. Room even had a sitting area and a balcony with beautiful views. Tea was included and the room was impressive. Looked like something out of a movie from old times but food was only so so.... More

Stayed here a few years ago. Beautiful views out to the ocean. Lovely traditional rooms. Needed to use the complimentary shuttle bus to get down to the town. Food was good. You can eat on the outside terrace which is beautiful with amazing views. There is a small village above if you walk up the hill where we had homemade... More

Rooms are large and clean, food is very good and the staff are very friendly and helpful. The views are wonderful. For the price you pay the hotel and the service and food is exceptional, its like stepping back in time. Some of the rooms could do with updating, however, were spotlessly clean. A good base to visit Capri, Pompeii,... More

We stayed at this hotel as part of a 4 day tour down the Amalfi coast. The hotel is about 20 minutes by shuttle bus from the main town, up a steep cliff, so not much of an option for a leisurely walk. The shuttle bus was appreciated, but the driver chose where he stopped in the bus area in... More

Breathtaking views, but unfortunately that's about all this hotel has to offer. The hotel is located approx 20 minutes from Amalfi. The hotel offers a shuttle bus and it is possible to catch a public bus to Amalfi. If you're happy to catch the bus down to Amalfi in the morning and stay out all day, then the location is... More

Our room was located in Garden. After elevator down you need to overcome several flights on foot. Water was running very slow, TV did not work or was not set up (and customer service did not help), shower is waiting for repair or handyman, WiFi and/or Internet required re-login every 10 minutes, a/c remote was missing battery.

Once a top hotel that is now 45 years old and needs refurbishment for modern discerning clients. Good size rooms all with very large balconies but all tired. The staff have lost the plot although the reception staff were good. The rest need training. We did not eat except for breakfast, which was mediocre. A very good swimming pool.It is... More
