This hotel is perched at the top of the mountain at least 15 minutes by cab or shuttle from Amalfi. It is very deceiving from the hotel web site that they are so far from the town. If you don't mind being dependent on the hotel shuttle for all your needs then this hotel has the most beautiful views of... More

Stayed at the Excelsior for one week. The rooms were large and the view from the balcony superb. Teenage son in room next to us - he also had a balcony and a 6ft bed to himself, and all for the same price that we would have paid had he been in with us! Yes, there was mismatched furniture, but...

Staying in a traditionally run hotel doesn't meet everyone's needs, but it certainly meets ours! Once again my husband and I returned to this hotel for the umpteenth time. Why you would say? The fantastic views and the excellent situation of the hotel are at the top, coupled with the friendly staff who go out of their way to make... More

We stayed at the Grand Hotel Excelsior as part of an Amalfi Coast tour. The hotel sits high above Amalfi with exceptional views. We had a room right down the bottom of the hotel, through little passages under hanging vines and lemon trees with football sized lemons. We had a huge balcony at the side which came in very handy...

The view is captivating in this outdated old hotel. It is a pitty that it is not kept well. Breakfast is the cheapest quality of roll and jam and coldcut that you can find in Italy. Beach towels for which you leave a deposit are rags. But the view is the one thing that is arguably the best in Amalfi.... More

My Partner and i stayed in this hotel for 5 days in June. On arrival the staff were very friendly and helpful. Rooms were a nice size with lots of storage and decent size balcony with beautiful views of mountains and further down the sea. Breakfast was lovely too, not much to choose from but they had lots of different... More

Stayed uphill Amalfi at this hotel. Breathtaking view, friendly staff. Eat a la carte at Tato, where Francesco, the chef, and Carmine, your serving friend, will spoil you. Hotel, an elderly lady, playing jazz and other melodies from 60ies, 70ies, but comfortable trustworthy etc. Forget her wrinkles and enjoy!

My boyfriend and I were all excited about finally visiting the Amalfi Coast, until we visited the Excelsior Grand Hotel. After a long flight into Naples Airport, we decided to catch the shutlle bus to Sorrento and from there the Sita Bus into Amalfi. The views are breathtaking! :) The drivers assured us that the total time journey from Naples... More

My wife and I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights as part of a 4 night tour from Rome. Perhaps we were spoilt with our accommodation in Sorrento but we were generally disappointed with Excelsior Grand. Please don't allow them to put you on Level -1. The rooms are separated from the hotel and not nice at all. You... More

Our room was quite standard but our balcony was huge with this incredible view. The staff at the hotel is very nice and helpful. A special reward to the Maitre d'hôtel Antonio who works in the morning for the breakfast and come back at night for the dinner. What a fantastic person. He is always smiling and ready to offer...
