Though both Fodors and Frommers had high ratings for this hotel, its tripadvisor ratings are unusually low among the 20 or so hotels in Ravello. So, initally, I was a little apprehensive to book its Torre Junior Suite - of which, I was really smitten by its website pictures ... it had left my almost speechless. Please see pictures enclosed...

We held our wedding reception at the Hotel Palumbo in Ravello in September 2007 and everything was perfect. The staff were very helpful, the food was wonderful and the Hotel and scenery were beautiful. The reception package provided by the Hotel Palumbo was very reasonable and good value for money. The Hotel also made our wedding cake which looked and... More

My wife and I and another couple spent four nights at the Hotel Palumbo at the end of October, 2006. The hotel has a spectacular view of Amalfi. Ravello is a very small town in a beautiful location. It is a short bus ride to Amalfi and we took a boat from there to Positano. You can also catch a... More

My husband and I stayed at the Palumbo in mid October, at the end of a vacation to celebrate my 50th birthday. We had booked a junior suite through an auction website, and had a package which included breakfast, dinner one evening, and the junior suite. We were shown to a lovely room with outstanding views, and treated extremely well... More

HORRENDOUS EXPERIENCE! We booked this hotel under the recommendation of "Departures Magazine." We have never felt so ripped off in our lives. We booked a deluxe room through the hotel, and when we got there, they shunted us off to their "annex" which is down the road, on the none-view side and which is simply a DUMP, complete with a...

We just returned from 4 days at the charming Palumbo in Ravello. This is an Oasis of peace and Beauty and one of the most beautiful locations on earth. After four frantic days in Rome, The Hotel and Ravello was just perfect. We had a beautiful suite overlooking the Sea with a huge private Patio and Sun Deck. I felt... More

I have been in Ravello in October and we spent four days at the Palumbo. We had a wonderful experience; view is amazing and the room was great. We strongly suggest spending at least one dinner at the restaurant drinking the homemade wine “episcopio”. The food selection wroth the trip! I am a frequent traveler but at the palumbo I... More

We stayed at the five star Palumbo residences (the four star annex is across the street). On the plus side the lobby and restaurant are impressive, the rooms are nicely designed, the grounds are beautifully maintained and their are fantastic views from many of the rooms and most of the common areas and grounds. But there are enough negatives to... More
