4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

Modestly priced hotel in the heart of the lovely coastal town of Amalfi. Friendly staff. Room basic but surprisingly large toilet shower room. Some noise from (outside) steps below our second floor room but not excessive. Suggest ear plugs if you're a light sleeper. Air con v effective. Spotlessly clean (the whole hotel - not just our room). Breakfast was the usual "continental" but fresh fruit and yogurts available as well as bread cheese, ham etc.

Very handily located, just 5 minutes level walk to sea. Definitely recommend.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a balcony if available.

We spent two nights here on a weekend, paying Euro 85 per night for a double with breakfast and received a free upgrade from an Economy room to a Standard (which we assume was just a bigger room).

The strange staircase arrangement means you have to go outside to get from the 2nd floor down (if not taking the lift) but this was fine. Our room faced the courtyard, was relatively quiet (other than the church bells which ring every quarter of an hour from 7 a.m. onwards...), spacious, with a good-sized bathroom. Wi-Fi reception on the second floor is weak so we were provided with a cable for our laptop and the wired connection was better. If you only have a wireless receiver, then you will want to avoid a room on the 2nd floor since we were told Wi-Fi on the upper floors is fine.

A decent continental buffet breakfast. Excellent, central location and very easy to find if you arrive by bus or ferry. If you have heavy luggage, be prepared to haul it up a flight of steps but really, the old staircases of Amalfi are part of the charm and fun to explore.

A good value option for a tourist town.

We have just returned from a weeks stay at this lovely, homely hotel. The check-in was quick, the receptionist was helpful, spoke wonderful English, and was very informative.
Our room, 301, was overlooking the garden, at the back of the hotel. It was very clean and spacious, with a delightful en-suite and both solid and louvre doors to the outside.
Breakfast was provided on the top floor, both terrace and inside tables available. The continental breakfast was plentiful with many choices, the staff are attentive and charming.
Other guests have passed comment about the Wi-Fi but we found it to be fine, no problems in reception, on the terrace and 95% of the time in our room on the 3rd floor.
The air conditioning unit in the room doubled up as a heater at night as we were subject to a short cooler spell during our stay. The heater was quiet and more than adequate.
We did book a trip via the hotel, to Pompeii and Vesuvius, which was well organised, with a knowledgable tour guide.
The hotel is a 2minute walk from the square and 3 minute walk from the harbour, using a short cut through the labyrinth of charming passageways, from whence one can catch ferries, jetfoil to Capri, Sorrento and other destinations.
I would recommend this hotel for its amenities, position and general character, we look forward to visiting again.
Thank you to Paola and the rest of the staff for your kindness and help during our stay, we very much hope to visit again.

Room Tip: Our room at the back was quiet regarding street noise and late night passers by, however I imagine t...

I have stayed there for two weeks and it was absolutely fantastic time. The stuff is so nice and friendly that i have never seen before. The hotel itself is cozy and clean. The bed was huge and comfortable, the room was clean and with lots of space to put things into.
the only thing that i didn't like was the lack of frigde and lots of noise from the street - but that is something one should get used to in Italy...

go there if you don't need any super-extra elegance and luxury!

Liked the idea of a family run hotel & our experience was a good one. The staff were quite friendly & helpful, the location is excellent in the centre of Amalfi but some may not like the need to climb some stairs from the street. We had the upper level a separate building in the courtyard which we very much liked, especially the small balcony which has a good view of the hills & the Amalfi buildings. Having breakfast on the terrace roof is good as well.

We got this room very last minute after deciding to stay in Italy another week and were delighted with it. We were blown away by the price and found we really got value for the little money we paid. The staff were wonderful and went out of their way to be helpful and friendly. The room was spotlessly clean. A bit noisy with heavy room keys and corridor noise and of course the bells!! Great location so central to all, great local bars in and around the square, however you'd be mad not to venture away from the square and eat in the wonderful restaurants overlooking the coast. Great base to visit the beautiful coastline and very cheap even on the tour buses. Hair raising journeys but bus drivers seem to know what they're doing along the mountainous routes. definitely stay here again.
