“Let down terribly”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

After arriving at Amalfi my first reaction was that the hotel was a long way from the centre of town.the owner assured us that buses were frequent ,it was only a short walk into town and he would take us for 6 euro...not bad,so we thought! The room was pleasant enough with a terrace,tv only had a few stations that got reception. We decided to walk into Amalfi ...25 mins later in searing heat! We soon discovered that the taxis did not like hotel Bellevue because of his cheap taxi service but one relented and took us back for ten euros.next morning we asked for taxi service- he was too busy!!! Wait for bus!!! It will take too long to take you!!! So we walked into town,battled the traffic,beat the bus,found another hotel and checked out the next morning! A disappointing start to our holiday. Promises lies.because we were leaving my husband was not even offered gluten free options for breakfast and he is a celiac.no apologies offered.we checked in to hotel bussola across from harbour and it was cheaper with great service and their own little beach!

Basil had a perching stool at the window of the hotel to spy on guests, " we christened it his lurking stool" as he seemed to appear from nowhere to catch us for example: taking food up to our rooms or indeed sneaking the travel kettle over the terrace to my sister to make a cup of tea. Joking apart the rooms, sea view terrace and location were perfect, and we had a really good time, and a good laugh at the antics of basil alias tomasos:-)

Due to previous reviews I was unenthusiastic about staying here, but having been let down by our booking at La Ninfa I didn't have a lot of choice.
In fact the hotel wasn't bad, the staff were pleasant enough, the terrace at the top of the hotel had a nice view and the staff bought our drinks up.
The room was comfortable, we were at the back of the hotel so only had a view out of the window of a wall about 3 foot away so we didn't bother opening the curtains, however this did mean were away from the road so this may have been a blessing. The room was plenty big enough and the bed comfortable. Breakfast as stated by others was fairly basic, but this was our experience at other Italian hotels as well.
Town is a 10-15 min walk away, mainly along the road.

Do you remember when you were a child and you were scolded for making crumbs all over the floor or of being shamed for spilling yet another glass of milk all over the couch?
Well, if you don't, you should definitely try staying at hotel Bellevue Suite in Amalfi. It's the perfect place for a Dickensian true living fantasy with the owner of the hotel playing the role of "Mr Fagin".

The only problem is that you are not a child anymore and that you are paying a considerable sum of money for being treated like a customer and not like brat in need of education.

And yet as soon as you'll arrive here you'll be feeling quite a lot like the unfortunate Oliver Twist:
- you will be told what to eat - the breakfast is absolutely the same every single day and even if you are willing to pay for something else you wouldn't have this choice.
- in what quantities to eat - a couple slices of cheese and ham, 6 slices of bread, 2 croissants, 2 fruit yogurts, some fruit jam and nutella. All this "enormous" quantity of food is for an adult couple. It seems that the owner of the hotel insists to take care of your silhouette.
- how to eat - God forbid to have the fantasy of drinking your coffee in your room - "Mr Fagin" will most definitely see you and he will forbid you to take the cup of coffee by yourself. Apparently he is very emotional attached by the carpet and considers, as I told you before, that every tourist is a poor, imbecile brat ready to damage his property. So one of the hotel employees will bring you the coffee or the whole breakfast (for an extra 10 euros per couple).
- you'll have to be always prepared for being disturbed by the housekeepers. There isn't any "do not disturb" sign.

On a positive side the rooms are clean, the employees are nice (I assume that with such an employer you wouldn't have the courage of blinking without permission) and compared with other Italian hotels the price is decent.

This was a walk in booking. The owner was very friendly and speak good english. Breakfast is served at your table so there is no choice! You can ask for more but this is not really accepted! His choice of fruit was very poor! The hotel is just outside the town, so location is ideal. The owner tends to be a control freak, so cuts off air-con in the general areas! Wi fi was intermittent.

Room Tip: Rooms are not sound proof so try and get a room at the ends of the passages!

My reservation for two double rooms with an adjoining terrace were not met, even though I had spoken to the hotel and had it in writing and the owner (father) was unfriendly and rather rude. That was the first impression. Lots of rules for what one can do and not do. Need a lesson being in the Hospitality business. Would not go back !!. We were accused of being spoilt Swiss. We were, in fact, English, Chinese and American !!!
Do not let that red passport fool you !!!

I visited amalfi this summer in July for four days. I stayed in hotel Bellevue with three of my friends and we were all very pleased. The staff are very friendly and speak good English. They were really helpful in pretty much all thing we could think of.

The hotel is located in a hill so it takes about 5-10 minutes to walks to the town center. The view is amazing. The hotel also had a private beach witch was really nice.
