We stayed in this hotel for two weeks last July and absolutely loved it. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who loves beautiful views and a touch of old fashioned elegance. It is located above Amalfi. We thought we would venture out at night but we loved the laid back evenings looking out to sea, sipping gin and tonic,... More

This Hotel is actually in Pogerola about 500 m above the town of Amalfi. We made full use of the pool, shuttle bus to town and many ferries to other nearby towns. We originally stayed at this hotel for three nights in 2011 and were so impressed we returned in 2013 for two weeks. Air Transat offers this as a... More

The staff are friendly and front office very helpful. Breakfast was good... More

Nice size room, with outstanding views of the Mediterranean sea from out balcony ( all had one) Just outstanding views of the town, countryside and all one could wish... More

We arrived here for 2 nights as part of a bus tour and couldn't have been happier. Yes the hotel is dated, but it is like taking a delightful step back in time. Today it could be considered as retro. We were fortunate because we were given not just room but a fantastic suite on the top floor with the... More

After trawling through all the reviews on here for Amalfi and this hotel we were not as impressed as we had expected to be. Good: Wonderful views. Rooms are old fashioned but charming and of a good size. Clean and plenty of towels. Large balcony with two deck chairs and two of those pretty ornate chairs. Dining room in a... More

We stayed here for 4 nights in September, we had a room on the 6th floor (highest) and had a wonderful view of the coast - could not fault this, such a treat! The rooms are more vintage than dated with Art Deco/Victorian furniture a bit mix-matched but surprisingly 'on trend' at the moment. The bathroom is larger than the... More

We stayed here for two nights as part of our tour to the Amalfi Coast. Our room was large with a very big bathroom compared to others we had stayed in Italy. The view from our balcony was spectacular regardless of being on the lowest level. Our breakfasts and dinners were included and were served in a quaint old classic... More
