First of all, this is the best breakfast we have had at any 4 star hotel in Italy. We love italian cured meats (ham, salami etc), cheese, tomatos and fruit and it was excellent to start our day eating this on terrace with the lovely view.
Secondly, the location is perfect. The hotel is located only 5 mins walking from the pier where you can get transport by either boat or bus. It is only 5-10 mins walking to the nearby small village of Atrani, that is worth a visit.
The size of the room and the cleanliness is also excellent. We had room 75, which did not have a private balcony, but a large window that could be opened.
The beds were too small for our comfort. We had twin beds and we always had a feeling that we were close to end up on the floor (and we are normal and skinny).
The hotel also charge extra for the WiFi and use of the guest PC. Honestly, with the room rate we paid (appox 200 EUR/day) this service should have been included.
We could hardly hear any noise from the main street below the hotel when the window was shut. However, the noise from the breakfast/kitchen area woke us up too early every morning.
Anyway, the negative issues are only minor and we would be happy to stay in this hotel next time we visit Amalfi.
The hotel has an agreement with one of the "beach owners" on the town beach where you pay 7 EUR/sunbed. This town beach is very crowded and not very pleasant. We recommend going to the beach called Santa Croce, which is only a short boat ride away from Amalfi.
