We are just back from Amalfi and this was one of the hotels we considered staying at so we were eager to have a look and see if we had chosen correctly to stay somewhere else. We also wanted to check it out for future trips to Amalfi. We were going to go to the bar for a drink. You enter the hotel from the road and have to get the lift up to the main hotel. There was no-one there to show us where to go so we thought we would investigate further. As the lift doors were closing the doorman came running towards us demanding to know what we were doing. We explained we wanted to go to the bar, and he said that was impossible. When we asked why he replied that the bar was closed. This was clearly a lie as it was not even 9pm. I don't know why we weren't good enough for this hotel (despite the fact we were staying 5* just along the road) but I can't stand attitudes like that. I name dropped the bar manager as we'd been talking to his wife earlier that day and she said we should definitely go. This seemed to give us the go ahead to go to the bar but after being treated like that there was bo way I wanted to stay there so we left. Rude, stuck up, pretentious, I'm so glad we opted not to stay there after all.
