We stayed here for 7 days in October 2013. After a speedy train trip from Rome and a beautiful ferry ride from Salerno we were so thrilled that our hotel was only a set of steps from the dock. The one long corner room we reserved included a bathroom with shower, queen sized bed, an area for a sofa, and... More

We have mixed feelings about this hotel. Below is our opinion of what we liked and not so much. Liked: 1. Location. Hotel is close to the beach and pier. It was good for us since we travelled by boat to Amalfi, Capri and Ravello. Ravello is amazing. 2. We had an apartment with long balcony. Incredible view. Apartment had... More

I stayed at the villa flavio Gioia for 2 days. I felt compelled to write an accurate review after reading so many other positive reviews. The experience wasn't horrible, as I mentioned it had a nice view & location and the bed was comfortable. But the experience for the price they charged was VERY poor in my opinion. This is... More

I felt obligated to write this review, just so you can get an idea of what to expect. I had booked the Villa Flavio Gioia for 2 nights. Reading the other reviews I was confident in my decision. I'm not a snooty person but this was average at BEST. To compare it on a scale of 1-10, and 10 being... More

Hotel is a very short walk from the ferry, directly across from the Church, which you see when the ferry pulls in so the hotel is easy to locate. The front desk staff is friendly and helpful. When we were walked to our room we were immediately taken back by the exceptional view. We spent a lot of time enjoying... More

We stayed there for Thursday and Friday nights. It is very close to the beach, restaurants and shopping area. The rooms are clean and spacious. There is a kitchen as well, but I could smell the food cooked before and since we have not cooked in the room, this smell was annoying but I will still rate the hotel "Excellent"!... More

Was here just last week. It was one of the highlights of our trip. We stayed in the 2 bedroom and it was a nice room and plenty of room for ourselves and teenage daughter. Christain and Maria were very nice and helped with a day trip to Capri, another highlight. The room is in a great location very close... More

First time traveling to Italy and to the Amalfi coast and I cannot say enough how much we loved staying here! It was right in the middle of everything and the walk to the beach was down the stairs just 5 mins away. The staff was really helpful and calmed a lot of my traveling anxiety I had. I emailed...
