“Great Host, Great Stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2014

We enjoyed our stay at Residenza Sole, the lady who greeted us and showed us everything and who was also serving breakfast and cleaning breakfast did a remarkable job. She is a star, I cannot remember her name but she had curly blonde hair. She was so friendly and helpful and managed everything by herself, not sure how she does it all by herself!! We had a great stay, the balcony for breakfast is nice, the rooms are a nice size and were clean, however yes there is problems with no soundproofing and guests making lots of noise. Was nice and quiet besides other guests noise.

Amalfi was such a small town but the hotel was 2min walk to the beach. The breakfast left us feeling full for most of the day, lots of options to choose from, we enjoyed the breakfast. One thing I will say to the owner is invest in new pillows!! They were all disgusting and bumpy and lumpy. Nice new pillows please!! Tried to get another pillow from the spare bed and that had hairs on it but wasn't as bumpy. Wifi is good. Breakfast was great, everything great, but please NEW PILLOWS!!

The host was wonderful, very friendly and helpful. The location in Amalfi is great as well. Also good value for the area, and the continental breakfast was nice. In general it was very good.

However, the Wifi did not work properly a lot of the time which is annoying. Also, there was literally no sound-proofing in our room, the windows don’t close properly so every outside sound comes in loud and clear, usually starting (with The Bells!) around 6:30am.

My wife and I and our son and his girlfriend stayed here during Easter. The young lady running the hotel was very friendly and helpful. The location was terrific, a very short walk to the main Cathedral square. The room was comfortable and the morning breakfast on the terrace was a good start to the day. A cosy place we enjoyed.

Was so close to the bus stop that made getting around effortless. As well as being a passage walk away from the town centre.

The lady at reception was always there to help and made the croissants by hand everyday! The breakfast was served on a large balcony at reasonable times whenever you were ready.

The rooms were large, clean and spacious with air con and huge windows.
Really enjoyed our stay.

Only thing negative was the WIFI. So temperamental!

We stayed here for two weeks last july. Our room was spacious, comfortable and clean, though slightly worn (by crazy Norwegian standards). Keep in mind that the area is quite expensive. The service was fantastic, Mariateresa provided helpful advice and perfect cappuccinos for breakfast (!). The location is perfect for getting to the beach or the center of Amalfi. The view was nothing much, but the Amalfi coast has no shortage of those.

I can wholeheartedly recommend Residenza Sole!

Not that there's a BAD location in Amalfi, but we loved being so close to the ocean and the main Marketplace in Amalfi but set back a little off the busy street. As with many hotels and B&Bs in Amalfi and elsewhere along the coast, you have to climb some stairs to get to Residenza Sole, but Maria-Theresa was right there to meet us at the bottom and hoisted my heavy suitcase up. She was so sweet, making our one-week stay there such a pleasure. Our room was clean and comfortable, and we enjoyed the breakfast each morning, served at a time of our choice and either in our room or on the patio. Thanks also for the loaner umbrellas.

I have nothing but good things to say about this B&B and the people who run it.

Residenza Sole is a small hotel with approximately 10 rooms. Every room has a different color and different planet name. The rooms and the bathrooms are large and well equipped. The breakfast is the same every morining and is pretty poor: toast, croissant, muffins, honey, jam, coffee, cappuccino, orange juice etc. You can have the breakfast in your room or on the hotel's terrace. The hotel is located in the back of the church, 2 min. from the beach, 3 min. from the bus station. The staff was very helpful, but you find them only in the morning or you need to call them. Amalfi is a beautiful place full with nice, small terraces, restaurants and souvenir shops. It was a very nice stay!
