First off, let's get one thing straight. This is a European hotel, not the Venetian Hotel in Las Vegas. It is small, boutique like, and comes with the "quirks" you can expect from similar properties in smaller towns not only in Italy but throughout Europe. We are just back from two weeks at the grand Excelsior Hotel, staying there from... More

A short report after reading the very recent and negative reports. We returned home on Monday 25th May and have been to this hotel every year since 2008. Location brilliant with stunning views. Be sensible check its location if you want to pop into town every two minutes. The comments re dated decor are valid if you compare with a... More

We visited Hotel Excelsior at the beginning of May 2015. What a treat, perched high on a rock, the views were amazing. Having breakfast each morning on the terrace over looking the sea. Very clean, food good choice, staff excellent, would definitely go back. It is a small pool area but sun beds were available every day. The hotel mini... More

What amazing views , set up in the hill side would not suit everybody but it suited us. Our room was lovely with a great balcony , we found all the staff helpful and friendly and everything was clean although old fashioned . Found the free shuttle service to Amalfi fine and caught the bus back on two occasions for... More

We returned from The Grand Excelsior Hotel Amalfi yesterday, I am writing this review so soon because we read reviews before we went, and were very worried by what we read, so I would like to say we had a fantastic time. All together we were a group of 11 staying here for 1 week for my son's wedding, we... More

Here now in room 314 and besides the incredible view everything else is pathetic. I can't believe I am stuck here for 4 days. It is not dated or vintage or any of these other nice words others have used. It is a dump. The glass table in front of me has a huge chip, the upholstered furniture is dirty,... More

In our opinion, better than the Cinque Terre because it is less commercialised - even if the crowds are still there. It is easy to get around by bus and everyone is friendly and helpful. We appreciated the gardens at Ravello and the wonderful views from the Grand Hotel Excelsior, all in glorious summer weather.

The hotel was old fashioned in decor but the clean and well maintained . The staff were polite , efficient and well mannered. Breakfast was of a buffet style with lots of choice , from continental to bacon and... More

We just stayed 5 days at the Excelsior and had a very good time. The only drawbacks were the internet service was not reliable - and the breakfast buffet was a bit redundant. Otherwise this is a classic hotel - not a modern hotel but almost vintage in decor and atmosphere. Service and assistance were very good. The shuttle into... More

A little tired in terms of decor but all is forgiven for the views. The staff very accommodating. There is a free shuttle into Amalfi, a few minutes away but the first trip can be a little unnerving because of the narrow road and some driving styles.
