We were attending a friend's wedding at a neighbouring hotel in Ravello. We couldn't have chosen a better place to stay. The staff are friendly and hotel has tremendous old world charm and character (Don't come here if you're expecting a gym and wifi). Simple but tasty breakfast spreads. But the best thing about this hotel's main wing is the... More

Hello, We stayed in this hotel for the first two nights of our honemoon and were very disappointed. On arrival, we were told that the parking was 25 euros/day, despite the fact that no mention of this is made on the website. Next, we were given a tiny room on two levels, with some sort of small sitting room at... More

I agree with other travelers. Great location. Lovely garden. Very clean, although a bit dated. Hanging laundry is unsightly. Will try to upload photos of it later. Who wants to stare up at big bras and trousers? Front desk staff very unhelpful. Purchased this hotel on LuxuryLink. I would not do it again. Was supposed to have a sea view... More

Compared to the hotels with views next door - Caruso and Sasso this is reasonable but it's also a bit in need of a refurbishment. Baths are dated and old fashioned. Wooden shutters a bit old. Beware of mosquitos keep the door closed. Nice garden with views at back but laundry hanging from the building above. Not disabled or friendly... More

Dinner at the Hotel Palumbo is an amazing experience. I have eaten at all of the other hotel restaurants as well as the restaurants in town, and this is without a doubt the best. The food is perfectly prepared and served on a beautiful terrace with an amazing view. The prices are also better than all of the other hotel... More

It just didnt work for me. Hotel full of antique furniture and paintings but there were no people. I didnt see another guest, not even at breakfast which was served in the lounge by the lobby, on a very small coffee table, not in the restaurant. The bedroom was tastefully decorated but there were ants in the bathroom and some... More

Superb charming hotel that has been lovingly maintained retaining a lot of its original features. The staff were incredibly helpful and friendly and seemed to have an almost encylopaedic knowledge of the history of the hotel and town. Our room was spacious with amazing views of the amalfi coast. The town was beautiful with a quaint little piazza where everyone... More

I Loved Hotel Ravello. From the sumptuous lobby to the quaint and comfortable rooms that look out over the Mediterranean you could not go wrong picking this place. Everything is within easy walking distance to the Town of Ravello, the music/concert center and bus stop (which takes you anywhere on the coast you want to go)! Don't miss the priceless... More

Two nights at the Palumbo was not enough. We loved this hotel. The desk staff was informative and friendly. If you can, stay in the "Romantica" room on the ground floor. Unforgetable. Great view of the Bay of Amalfi and hills in the distance.

We had our wedding at Palumbo last summer and it was GORGEOUS. The staff was very professional and the reception was terribly fun and beautiful. I had a wedding planner for the ceremony and flowers, but Palumbo took care of organizing every other detail...flawlessly. The hotel is lovely and feels like you are staying in a private villa (which it... More
