This hotel has an excellent position to visit the Amalfitan Coast at an acceptable price and good quality of the service. The problems occurred during our stay were rapidly solved by the staff, who is extremely kind. Only some points to consider for improving service: - The breakfast was always the same, no variation. Lack of products from the area... More

Good hotel if you want to enjoy the beach, but not restful at all. Noise came from every possible source: - Very thin doors and poor noise insulation basically meant that people talking in the hallway might as well be in your room - Spring loaded doors were slamming shut until 2am and starting at 8am. - Cheesy music from...

In addition, we are sorry you did not appreciate our music, based on careful selection of jazz and lounge. Furthermore we’d like to apologize if our staff... More

My husband and I visited this hotel for 5 days last week. We were immediately impressed with the location and our beautiful room. We had an extended balcony that extended over the coast. Our room was always quiet and the maid gave us excellent service. The morning breakfast was so much better than what we had had in Rome at... More

My husband and I stayed here for two nights in late September, at the end of a lovely tour of the Amalfi Coast. Among my fondest memories of the trip is waking up here, in a beautiful whitewashed room to the sound of the Mediterranean lapping at the shore below. It's like being in a movie. The breakfast was by... More

I was honoured to be a guest at the Hotel Cetus whilst attending a business event, also hosted at the hotel. The hotel is in a spectacular cliffside location, my room had an amazing view right onto the sea. It is very picturesque at night. The communal areas of the hotel are kept spotlessly clean and tidy, and all the... More

Hotel Cetus was absolutely breathtaking, and I plan on returning in 2014. The rooms were beautiful along with the views! I had the time of my life in Italy. It was clean, quiet, the breakfast was delicious, they also have a great restaurant for dinner which overlooks the sea. The view from our room was gorgeous, and the hotel staff... More

Dear Mr. Magnusson1234, we do not allow outside guests to enter the hotel after midnight without being registered. This is both for safety reason and to ensure the quiet to our guests. Furthermore we inform you that around 3:00 a.m. the only taxis available come from Salerno. These are normal taxis with regular taximeters; we are not responsible for the... More

An unassuming Cliffside boutique type hotel. Driving up to it is at 1st glance disconcerting as all you see is a concrete she'd w/ 1door.. the elevator, down. All levels are built into the cliff.

Just made a third stay at the Cetus, and love it. Certainly one of the most enjoyable places to stay on the Amalfi Coast; and yet the Cetus retains a natural flair and a simplicity that's hard to find at other 5-stars-worth hotels. Not to mention breakfast is great and served in a room with a stunning view, and the... More
