First off, we felt Amalfi was a great "base point" for our Amalfi coast vacation. Spent 6 nights here and we easily got to Positano, Ravello, Sorrento (longer trek). The hotel is also right across from the beach, the town square, and very close to the bus and ferry terminals. Staff goes out of their way to make your stay comfortable. We stayed in a Superior Room and it was very spacious. Turn down service was a nice pleasant touch to the hotel. Would definitely return here again the next time we are in Amalfi!

Hotel Residence in Amalfi is a place that one only dreams about. The perfect view from the room's balcony (room on the second floor) was overlooking the water with a very active square. There were comfortable beds and unbelievable service by the entire hotel staff. It seemed like a family-run operation. The breakfast terrace was manned by very helpful waiters. By the 4th day, they would actually set a table for us actually expecting us. One day, my wife wanted a banana but they did not have any. A waiter took it upon himself the next day to set a table with a banana on a plate waiting for us to arrive. We also would stop on the terrace for drinks before and after we would go out for the night. When our stay was over the waiters said they looked forward to seeing us again some day.We(3 couples) also had a one in a million situation arise. It was June 27 which we found out was The Feast of St Andrew. We saw hundreds of people gathering by the water and the streets at night were decorated with many lights, statues, bands and processions. Our hotel balcony was the central point to observe all that was happening. We also discovered that there were to be fireworks at around midnight. All of us have seen many fireworks displays but none were ever like this. The fireworks started and we observed that they were being shot directly across the street from us. So they were basically directly over us on our balcony and they were lighting up the entire sky. Never has any of us seen such a scene. For a half hour, it was one unreal scene after another until the finale which incredibly was even better. Thank you, Hotel Residence, for an experience that will be with us forever.

Room Tip: Second floor overlooking the water was perfect!

We spent 4 nights in this great hotel. Fabulous location for cafes, shopping, walking etc. Our room was so lovely and we had a lovely balcony to relax on. The room was very clean and bed extremely comfortable. The staff were so friendly and helpful. We would definately stay again and would recommend this hotel as a great place to stay.

A four-star hotel in the perfect and central Amalfi location. Perfect spot for all your excursions, situated across the road from the ferry, bus, tours. Ferries go from here to Capri, Sorrento, Positano and Salerno amongst others. Bus trips include Positano, Ravello, Maiori and Minori. We asked for a room change onto a higher floor which was obligingly given.

Room, lovely bright and airy, bathroom good, lovely balcony and view over the seafront. Toiletries minimal with the smallest soap ever encountered (we went out and purchased a large soap).

Concierges very helpful, although barely any tourism literature to speak of. Best to make your plans beforehand or be able to use the internet on arrival to find out tours etc. We ordered two English newspapers which they kindly delivered to us each morning (with no surcharge). Excellent service! Breakfast room and terrace lovely but with a limited breakfast range. Free Wi-Fi. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Would suggest a higher floor sea facing.

We spent four delightful days in this charming and perfectly located hotel. The room was lovely and very clean, with a a balcony on which to sip a cool drink, or a glass of limoncello and admire the stunning view unfolding before our eyes. The hotel is conveniently located near all modes of transportation, excellent restaurants and the beach. We had a room facing the sea, and although it was very busy below, the windows had such excellent shutters that you could not hear anything of the hubub on the street at night. Breakfast was very good with great cappucino and plenty of choices to stimulate any appetite. Best of all, it was served on a beautiful terrace with a gorgeous view. Lastly, we were very impressed with the service; both in the breakfast room and the reception. The staff was very helpful in all ways and we thank especially,Francesco, for his guidance. We cannot wait to return.

Room Tip: Room #15 has a small but lovely balcony with a great view.

After a long flight and very long drive due to being a bit lost we were thrilled with our welcome at Hotel Residence. Francesco stayed past his shift to make sure we had arrived and checked in with ease. We had a large van which Francesco quickly offered private parking for an extra 5 euro a day. Breakfast was perfect. Staff went out of their way. Location was perfect. We would definitely return and miss it already.
