Wonderful views , clean hotel and friendly staff! Especially Antonio and his team! However hotel in a "time warp" looks like nothing has been modernised since the hotel was built in 1962! Food very disappointing! Only one evening had food we enjoyed! Half board people had to sit separate from those who were "all la carte!"

What a great find this hotel is, the views from our second floor room were spectacular. We booked a half board option and on the whole the food was very good. I did send some under cooked fish back but this was replaced by another choice without question. In the first few days there seemed a large reliance on aubergine,... More

Good clean hotel, comfortable, organised, well run - helpful staff, good shuttle bus service, nothing to fault it as far as I'm concerned - beautiful area, good travel links t get out and about... it is what it is.. not the most expensive, and so not the most up to date.. I was just grateful to be there enjoying myself...some... More

The hotel is perched high up, overlooking the town of Amalfi, and has terrific views of the town and the surrounding countryside. Great to eat breakfast outside on the terrace in the mornings - what a way to start each day. We chose this hotel as we try to stay at places with 'character', rather than the usual nondescript chain... More

The hotel is an old but very charming hotel on the coast of Amalfi. It's high up on the coast and it looks just like out of an old film. We enjoyed every minute of our stay there. We loved the big pool and enough deckchairs to lay in the sun. Our room was a good size, very clean with... More

Excelsior Grand old charming hotel located in middle of mountain has amazing view. Not sure when this hotel was built seems like 50's rat pack chic. Hotel is little old fashion but I think that makes more charming to me. Each room has nice size balcony over looking ocean which drop dead gorgeous view hard to explain. Very nice size... More

Just arrived back from a 5 day break at the Excelsior with my boyfriend. What a truly breathtaking place. Rooms are spacious and clean, food is tasty, service is welcoming, but that's not why you stay at the Excelsior. You stay for the views, which are quite simply staggering. They took my breath away every morning, and are no less... More

For anyone seeking tranquility this hotel is perfect as it is situated high above the town of Amalfi in a peaceful setting with stunning views. The decor is authentic italian, the food is italian and is delicious, and the service, led by the wonderful Antonio is superb. I suggest that the reviewers that are surprised that the hotel is not...

We have just had a 10 day stay at the Excelsior. The views are outstanding. The restaurant staff are very attentive and friendly. The hotel is lovely but the food is shocking. Unfortunately we booked half board but after day 3 had had enough and ate out every night. A bit out of the way but the bus service was... More
