We drove down to Amalfi and managed to park very easily in a spot right outside the doors. Though a tip to anyone planning to stay there and drive- the roads are horrific and the other road users even worse. The public transport to and from the hotel actually seemed really reliable and cheap, so you don't really need to... More

The views from this hotel are outstanding. Sitting in the terrace for meals is a second to none experience. The professionalism and friendliness of the restaurant staff could not be faulted.Perfect waiter service. The hotel is dated but this adds to its charm and everywhere is spotlessly clean.The rooms are spacious and the plumbing is noisy but this is not... More

Beautiful view, good food (a little expensive), the room is very clean. It was perfect for our honeymoon. I recommend it if you want a quiet place and a relaxing time at the pool. The hotel offers the posibility to go by bus (which is free) to the private beach (for 10€/person you will have a sunbed and an umbrella)... More

Having read other people's mixed comments, I wasn't sure what to expect. Now I can see why the comments were mixed. It all depends what you are looking for. If it's views - I think you would find it impossible to better. The views over Amalfi and the hillsides are wonderful from all the different aspects of the hotel. If... More

I have just returned from the excelsior grand hotel and had an amazing time. The reviews about the hotel being dated is absolute rubbish it's authentic vintage Italian! We stayed bed & breakfast to which there was plenty of choice. The restaurant at night time is al la carte so the portions are not big but the food is very... More

Comfortable room with sea view. Very friendly staff with excellent command of english. Antonio at breakfast was the star. He spoke many languages, very engaging anf made breakfast a treat. Although the quality was average for western style but Italian style was perfect. Hotel staff gave good recommendations for sightseeing, restaurants and shopping. A tad out of the way but... More

Just back from an 11 night stay in the Excelsior Grand Hotel. As previous reviewers commented the hotel may be a little dated but it has its own charm, and it was clean, the bedroom was a good size and a large balcony with jaw dropping views. We were half board, breakfast was excellent and the evening meal, although not... More

Fantastic place to stay and can honestly say you can't fault it but I agree with others that the rooms need updating, but this is soon forgotten about when you step out on the balcony. The hotel is just next to the village of Pogerola which you can walk to in 15 minutes and there are a few restaurants there... More

The rooms are old but in very good order . the only big down fall was the lack of noise insulation of adjoining rooms you can actually hear people go to toilet and talking in bed .but... ALL IS FORGIVEN with the stunning views that will give you butterflies. Be sure to give bar near pool a visit during the... More

We just returned home from our trip to Italy. We booked the Rome and Amalfi Coast tour through Viator. We loved the tour, part of it was a few nights stay at the Excelsior Grand Hotel. Our room was a good size, the bathroom a bit small with funky dated tile but best of all was our own terrace overlooking... More
