My husband and I just returned from a 12 day trip to Italy, and spent 2 nights at the Residence Hotel. Upon checking in, we were immediately impressed with the helpfulness and efficiency of the staff. They were warm and welcoming, giving us directions to a nearby parking garage, helping us bring our bags to our room, and offering us a voucher for a free drink at the the hotel bar. In the heart of Amalfi, with views overlooking the beach and the beautiful sea, we loved the hotel's location. We were able to easily walk everywhere in town. In our opinion, Amalfi was slightly quieter than Positano (where we spent an afternoon) and not quite as upscale, but just as charming. At the hotel, we had a beach-front room, and the view from our balcony was jaw-dropping. Although in the room during the afternoon the hustle and bustle from the street below was slightly noisy, we had no noise problems at night when we were ready for bed. Included in the room price was a wonderful breakfast buffet, with the opportunity to eat on the patio, also overlooking the beach. We also enjoyed a cocktail on the patio before dinner one evening, complete with complimentary hors d'ouevres (bruschetta, peanuts, chips, and olives). On both occasions, the wait staff was attentive and friendly. Our room was small-ish, but clean and well-appointed with newer bathroom fixtures. My one complaint is that the mattress was quite firm -- if you are used to a cushy pillow top mattress, you will notice a difference. When we checked out, we were again impressed with the efficiency and professionalism of the staff. The only other potential drawback of the Residence Hotel is that there is not a pool -- This was fine for us, as we likely would not have used it even if there was one, but good to know if a pool is something that is important to you. Overall, we highly recommend the Residence Hotel and would definitely stay there again if we are lucky enough to find ourselves in Amalfi again anytime soon :)
