“Quiet but in the heart of things in Amalfi”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2013

The Lidomare is right in the centre of Amalfi, just a few steps down to the main shopping street. It is a clean, friendly, family-run hotel. We were welcomed warmly after we hiked up the steps (good practice for all the towns on the Amalfi Coast). The mosaic tiles on the floors are beautiful. The furniture in the rooms was interesting, mostly antiques. One room overlooked the Adriatic and was a bit noisy at night with the sound of gears being changed on buses and motorbikes on the road below. The other room overlooked a little square with restaurants, a fruit stand, shops and a pharmacy. (See photos) The breakfast room was small but we weren't in a great hurry so we managed. One day some of our group ate in the owner's living room because the breakfast room was full. We took the ferry from Salerno and it was easy to find the hotel. It was convenient for buses as well and for hiking to the nearby towns. It was really busy on the main street but when you walked further along the street, it was much quieter.

We had a room overlooking the Adriatic Sea and it was wonderful. The room was lovely, the bathroom adequate (a little small) but clean and quiet. Everyone who worked there was friendly and helpful. The breakfast room was small but they had another room for extra seating. The only thing I really did not like was all the stairs to get to the hotel. But it is a very hilly region so it is to be expected, I guess. As I am getting older, it becomes more difficult, so I just take my time and hold on to the railings.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view. The furnishings were lovely. Large size room, bathroom a little small...

Beautiful old, quaint hotel in crowded centre of town. Lovely furnishings, good continental style breakfast. Lots of steps up to hotel but that is part of the geography and can't be helped and part of charm. We were on walking holiday and this provided a good starting point for walks to Ravello and over to Priano

Hotel Lidomare is a family run hotel in a beautiful old building with antique furniture very large rooms - at least ours was - beautiful sea views from some rooms. If you arrive by boat or by bus just look across the street and look for the white arches opposite the bus stop. This is the back of the hotel and the balcony of the rooms with sea views.
The staff in Lidomare were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was basic continental but perfectly fine.
Hotel Lidomare is right in the center of Amalfi and is accessed via some steps from the main street on the left after you pass under the arch entrance to the town square. This hotel is very good value for money.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms with a sea view. Ours had a balcony and could be a little noisy at night but its wort...

This boutique hotel is in an excellent position, a few minutes walk from the bus station .The large rooms with balcony overlook the sea & beach. Comfortable clean beds & rooms. We found Amalfi a good central point to go out on day trips from, and the bus system although crowded is excellent. Breakfast was continental style & the staff were more than happy to serve us tea in our room when requested.

Room Tip: Make sure you book well ahead for a room with a balcony overlooking the ocean

Small good value for money hotel in the heart of Amalfi. Friendly staff and clean comfortable rooms with no frills. Breakfast quite adequate. Book a sea view room for an interesting view of the front - the traffic noise is nearly all blocked out by the doors and shutters. Only downside are the 27 steep steps up to the hotel.

Room Tip: Worth booking a sea view room with a balcony. The French windows and shutters block out almost all...

We stayed four nights at Hotel Lidomare just this last weekend in Amalfi. It is situated right at the front on the township with only a few steps up to the door. We caught the bus there from Salerno train station which was crowded but if we had realised there was another bus just one minute later we would have waited for that one.The bus ride is sensational with wonderful views of the Mediteranean and the townships built uip off the rocks and into the mountains, breathtaking! There are sea view rooms with balconys that are fabulous, which of course we requested well kn advance. With antique furniture and old style hospitality. The rooms are spacious and clean with that Italian flavour of tiled floors.The staff are delightful and cheerful as well as helpful and kind. breakfast is the usual continental style. We would recommend this place because of the views and proximity to the main square, the bus tops, and still it is quiet enough to sleep and relax. The only detractor for today's traveller is that one has to go into the breakfast area or Wifi zone to connect to the Internet as it doesn't work in the bedrooms. The only other thing is the English channels only have CNN, but that is the case in a lot of places in Italy.

Room Tip: Request a sea view room in advance
