“Forget Residenza Sole”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2011

First of all is not an hotel, even it’s advertised like it in the web!
The heating in the room was OFF. When we put it ON we discovered right away that the air conditioning was old and noisy, so noisy that we could either shout it OFF, and freeze, or leave it ON and be enable to fall asleep.
We made a reservation for a double room, they gave to us two single beds put near by: they would open in the middle and we were forced to sleep on the two opposite sides.
Service? No extra blankets or extra pillows available in the room, nothing to put your feet on after take a shower.
Parking? A very expensive surprise. In the main square it costs 3 euro per hour, and for the all night it means 24 euro. We complained and they parked it somewhere else charging 20 euro for 1 night, but I believe that the info should be made clear when you are booking. Parking was an hidden cost.
Location? Beautifully downtown, at foot distance from the cathedral! But that’s it! And don’t try to go on summer time: on the white walls there were evident signs of mosquito killed by other unfortunate guests: the only window is not protected by a mosquito net.
Breakfast? It was ok.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2010

The hotel is nice, the rooms are big and spacy and very clean. But: it is very expensive for what they offer. Breakfast is poor, just a coffe and a croissant. We barely saw anybody there, even the day before our departure, I had to go to find a telephone to call the cell phone that was in a sign on the door, (luckily I had a phone card) to call the girl that had checked us because I wanted to pay since the next morning we would leave before breakfast (at 7 am). Yes, the car was brought to the piazza from the parking and we found the keys in a closet, but seemed like they didn't care about our needs.
We needed 3 separate beds. We found one double bed and one single. We asked for the beds to be separated and the girl told us that it would be done for the next day. No way, and the beds could have been separated.
I needed internet, this is one of the points I was sure to have. There was a laptop to be used, not always there (I had to call again finding a payphone for that) and even in the middle of it, the girl needed it so she asked me to use it. I had to stop doing what I was doing.
A pitty. Amalfi is a strnge place, interesting and with a special beauty. The hotel has everything to make you spend a great time, only if the owner pay attention to it, thing that was not at all in our feelings.
