Hotel is approximately 5-10 minutes walk to the centre of Amalfi with a stunning view of the town and harbour. It is a lovely building on the outside, and contemporary and clean on the inside. However such a shame that on the inside, it is very bland and nothing is made of the history of building. On the outside, the gardens are lovely, however such a shame that these areas are prohibited to the hotel guests. You can only really walk on the terrace and around the pool area.
The room was clean and fine for our needs, but nothing special for the price. It was however impossible to have a shower without flooding the bathroom.
The breakfast staff were pointless. They were either gossiping between themselves, or nowhere to be found, or busy reshuffling tables in preparation for lunch which was very annoying when you are trying to have a relaxing breakfast. Why can they not do this when breakfast service is over at 11 as lunch service does not start until 13:00. We had a nice meal in the restaurant one evening, but again, the staff were performing the same and each course was brought out immediately after the previous one. The impression was given that for both sittings, the staff were pleased to clear out diners as early as possible.
Breakfast choice was poor. Hot food on offer at breakfast was stone cold. Only a single choice of ham and cheese availabe. Other selections of cheese and ham or hot food were available, but were charged at an extra cost e.g. 15 euro for a selection of cheese.
Car parking charges are not mentioned anywhere until you depart and have to pay 25 euro per day. Wifi is intermittent.
The hotel overall is very expensive for what you get and is defintely not 5 star.
