“Friendly family-run place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013 via mobile

It feels a little like sitting in the family's living room and when the breakfast room is full, they actually do seat you in their living room! Staff is very friendly so I won't consider the rather poor breakfast in the review. Rooms and bathrooms were OK. We had a sea-view room only the second night as we had no booking. The sea-view is somewhat spoiled in Amalfi, the bus stand and a parking lot are located between the beach and the village.

We arrived in Amalfi by ferry on a hot sunny day after a tiring day of travel from Milan then Salerno. We had a few problems finding the hotel (don't rely on Google maps!) as it is in a large square rather than on a street. However if you head from the ocean and main bus area down the main street, you will pass some shops and see the Duomo on your right. Immediately opposite is a laneway on the left side (where there is a Deutsche Bank). Turn left up the stairs here and walk across the square (this is the Larco Duchi Piccolomini) and you will see the hotel at the end. In retrospect knowing what the hotel looked like, you can see the hotel from the ocean and the road outside the bus stop!

The hotel: it is a family-run hotel in an extremely central location in Amalfi. You are essentially in the middle of town, opposite the Duomo, and surrounded by many restaurants and shops. We were fortunate to have a ground floor room so we didn't need to carry our luggage upstairs. The wifi is free, although we were never able to get connectivity in our room (so we sat in the breakfast room near reception to use the internet). They didn't have any city maps for us to use, but the owner kindly let us look at one of his large maps and we took all the photos we needed of the maps to use! Breakfast included cornflakes, spreads and prepacked biscuit snacks (help yourself) as well as croissants and bread and hot drinks (served by the maids) - enough to get you started.

The room: the room was reasonably large with two single beds, an enormous gilded mirror and some old-fashioned upholstered chairs and an armless armchair as well as homely lamps around the room. There was a fridge (with some minibar items which we didn't use) and in-room safe. We had windows that opened to a balcony with views of the sea as well as the shops and buses in the main square! It was beautiful to stand there and admire the view!

The bathroom: we had big thick towels and plenty of soap and toiletries for our four-night stay. There was a lovely rainwater showerhead (the shower cubicle itself was tiny) - perfect for getting clean after each full day of hiking!

We stayed at the hotel to do a lot of hiking around Amalfi (Ravello, Scala, Valle delle Ferriere, Valle del Mulini, Torre de Zirro, Pontone, Atrani, Minori and Maiori) and it was the perfect place to stay and unwind and rest before the next big day of hiking. We were always welcomed back to the hotel with a smile and it was a delightful and friendly place to stay. I would have no hesitation in staying here again!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a balcony and a view of the sea!

Well located hotel, with view on the sea for some rooms, and close to the bus station. We had a balcony looking out to the sea. Very nice. Clean large room. Fair breakfast (but limited items). Staff helpful.

Staff could have known more about making collect calls to America.

WIFI not working but staff let us used their laptop / internet.

After a long hot busy journey to Amalfi from Naples the Lidomare Hotel was a nice surprise. We had a huge room; we had booked a double but ended up with a double & two singles! (At no extra cost thank u!) Our room overlooked the main parking / bus depot and the ocean at Amalfi. We had a large sun drenched balcony too. Breakfast was included & yummy. Thanks for a lovely stay.

Perfect location, right at the entry to Amalfi. You can see their sign on the white building that is in front of the parking lot (if arriving to Amalfi by bus). No many steps to climb or long narrow streets to walk with your luggage. Just enter through main streets to the city center, under the portals, in the first alley (just in front of the Cathedral) turn left into the alley, take the left steps, you'll enter into a small square, the hotel if right on the left corner in front of you. Easy to find, easy to stay and great to explore the city and take the buses to go along the coast. Comfortable, attentive staff, continental breakfast and big rooms. Wifi works in the designated area (at least it didn't work in my room). The only minor detail (and I think that was because I went out of season and they were just starting to open again) was that there was a little bit dusty e.g. the Skybox command. It was a great choice on my side.

Room Tip: try to get a room that faces the sea.

The staff are friendly and helpful. They recommended restaurants that had good food and reasonable prices. their central location, just off the square, is close to the buses, water and reasonable parking. Good breakfast and large traditional rooms; simple and very comfortable.

Arriving in Amalfi was overwhelming at first with all the swarming tourists but then we found this hotel, quiet just a few blocks off the main drag and charming in every way. The architecture is varied as you wander the stairs and different buildings, with old world charm everywhere. Perfectly located in the midst of everything and yet in a quiet semi-secluded square. The only problem is the breakfast, which is meager in selection and quantity. One of the women in charge actually protested when we wanted a second cup of coffee. Unfortunately we had to leave after one day as it was full, but even though we did not have a sea view, we were charmed.
