We stayed at the Residence for a week and found the Residence to be a very nice hotel with a very professional staff. The know Amalfi very well, so ask them for advise on where to go, how to get there and where to eat! The hotel has a great location just oppsite the beach, and you'll find the main square just around the corner. Breakfast is served outside on a lovely terrace. The rooms are nice and spacious.
The balconies are rather small, and if you prefer quiet it might not be the right thing for you. We loved sitting on the balcony just watching all the activity on the beach and in the streets in the afternoon.
We'd love to come back!
