We chose this hotel because of the free parking, wifi, free breakfast and the shuttle into town but were not disappointed in its other facets either! The Grand is ~15 minutes 'above' Amalfi (in the town of Pogerola) and from the terrace, has a breath taking view of the coast and towns below. We took advantage of the shuttle into... More

the staff are polite and excellent at their jobs. I stayed here with a friend in June 2013 and would definitely stay again. I am well travelled but admit that this hotel has the best views I've ever seen. The decor is dated but that just adds to the charm for me, it you like modern chain hotels this is... More

Our room at this hotel was so blah. Literally almost no decor. It was spacious but that was about it. And then I walked onto the balcony. WOW!!! Amazingly beautiful views. Totally made up for the room. Also, a lot of the pictures I've seen online puzzle me. The entire hotel seemed outdated, stuck in another era. It was clean... More

If you want a bland "Hilton" type modern interior...then don't come here. If you want something retro and true to the year it was built (1962) then here is the place for you. If you want extensive menus with 20 choices for each course....don't come here. if you want a small menu of beautifully home cooked Italian food, served with... More

My husband and I stayed here last week and thought it was great. The views are amazing and the tranquility of where it is was good. Hotel staff were really friendly and very helpful. We went for a peaceful holiday and that is exactly what we had. Amalfi town is very nice although a bit busy on the roads at... More

I booked this hotel to celebrate our wedding anniversary and my wifes birthday and I was a little apprehensive having read some of the negative reviews on TA. The hotel is in a great location sitting nicely above Amalfi with beautiful views from both the bedrooms and public areas. I could never get tired of sitting on the terrace and... More

The views from every area of the hotel are amazing and the service provided from all members of staff is excellent! You are made to feel really special. The rooms exceeded my expectations, had SKY TV, mini bar (not expensive at all) and we loved the old Italian decor and amazing views from the balcony. Initially we thought we'd made... More

We have been staying at this hotel for over seven years now, having been regular visitors to the Amalfi coast for over thirty years. We fell in love with the area in 1988 and simply can't leave it- it is a stunning part of the world.We have stayed in hotels in both Amalfi and Ravello over the years but in... More

Very good hotel. Hotel is situated high up on the side of a cliff overlooking the town of Amalfi. Shuttle service to town is free or you can take local bus (or if you are really adventurous you can take the stairs down - over 1000 with no railing) . Rooms are good. Air conditioning was poor and was blowing... More
