Superb location with stunning views over Amalfi and the coast. We were lucky enough to have an excellent private balcony but the hotel provides lots of pubic space to enjoy the views to. The breakfast terrace is peaceful and beautiful and serves delicious melt in the mouth pastries. Rooms are small but clean. No tea or coffee making provided in rooms but everything else was there and in good working order. No problem whatsoever with Wifi. The hotel staff were friendly and attentive and spoke English very well. The hotel could do with publishing it's GPS co-ordinates as a little difficult to find if arriving by car after dark as we did. Look for the entrance just before the second tunnel on the right as you leave Amalfi town. Valet parking is a bit costly at 25 Euro's per day but necessary. Hotel can only be entered via two lifts too take you up the cliff side. We did see a guest in a wheelchairs so disabled access must be possible, though you could not have accessed our room due to the stirs if frail elderly or disabled. Wonderful time of the year to visit (mid October) as still warm but not as crowded as in the summer. If comparing with 5 star in a major city then no it is not but comparable, but if you keep in mind that you are in an old coastal resort and you are paying for a clean well presented well sited hotel with very pleasant staffing you will not be disappointed. We will most definitely be thinking of visiting off season again.
