“One of the best hotels in the world”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2012

This hotel is just amazing,.
We went here for out honey moon and weren't disappointed.
It's a small hotel with approximately 25 rooms close to the sea and city centre of Amalfi.
You can reach the bus terminal for further transport along the amalfi coast just a minute away from the hotel entrance.

The staff is fantastic, they prevent all your needs before you even ask.
They also make the most fantastic bellini with aperitivo with reasonable prices.
Rooms are clean and modern, air condition keeps the room as cold as you like.
They clean twice a day and make your bed ready at night. In the reception they helped us with booking a table to the restaurant as well as guide us on how to get to the different locations around Amalfi.

Breakfast is of high standard and can preferrably be eaten out at the terass when weather permits. Don't forget to ask the waiter for a cappucino.

Hotel on beach front right beside entrance to main street in Amalfi. Dont be fooled by appearence from front of hotel or entrance - when you go up to first floor thats when the standard of this hotel really impresses. Excellent rooms with very good size bathrooms including jacuzzi shower/bath. Stylish rooms with balcony that from room 8 overlooked both the front and square in front of Cathedral. Stoney beach across the road from front door - cost 10 euro for 2 beds daily and umbrella - sea beautiful to cool off in with amazing views of town. Excellent staff always wiling to assist with queries and advise.

Room Tip: Rooms at front of hotel are of a very high standard but seem to be booked by Italian guests.

I am not sure why the good ratings. Yes the hotel is ok not that great for the price. However I have never meet more arrogant staff in all my years of travelling. If you want to spoil your trip to the Amalfi coast then stay here. Other wise I strongly suggest you pick somewhere else. It was like we were working for them. Very rude and unhelpful I would expect more from a two star hotel

Charming building, location, friendly and helpful staff, cleanliness, great breakfast on the terrace with amazing views, balconies in every room - all of this could not be better. Close to absolutely everything and a discount on the better beach across the street. Yes, it could be a bit too hot for people who are used to cooler temperatures inside, but we were comfortable

Had a wonderful stay at this hotel. Location - can't be better across from the beach, the bus terminal and ferry service. Once you close the windows it is silent in the room. Good breakfast in a beautiful terrace, dont forget to ask for cappucino. Friendly staff. only complaint our Air condition was far from US standards, but it was 40 c or 100 F outside.

Room Tip: ask for water view.

I've been there as a gift, parked in the 'Luna Rossa' underground parking, gone by feet to the center of Amalfi via a 100 m tunnel.
Wonderful old style palace in front of the sea and two steps from the central piazza of Amalfi, exceptional service, both professional and empathic, rooms with high ceilings, air conditioned, comfortable beds and bathrooms decorated with typical local pottery.

Room Tip: Rooms on the right side (watching the sea) have both shadow and panoramas from the balcony

I have been to Hotel Residence in July for a week for my best friend"s wedding in Amalfi. I have found the hotel through Tripadvisor anf Residence turned out to be one of the most beautiful place I have ever stayed. It's a 18th century palazzo converted into a hotel in 1950"s and renovated in 2010. It is perfectly situated next to Amalfi port and beaches with magnificent views of the sea and. I have stayed in a room with an outstanding frescoed ceiling with a very nice balcony. Breakfast and evening drinks at the terrace overlooking to Mediterraneo is so lovely. One can make this hotel a focal point and travel to Positano, Atrani and Ravello from here. When you step out of your room you meet lovely chandeliers, statues and artefacts of the palazzo. The staff is very helpful. I"m looking forward for my next trip and stay in room 4 once again! It has great atmosphere both for couples and families and solo travellers.

Room Tip: room 4 is nice and room 7 has a jacuzzi!
