“The best place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

This hotel is a wonderful mix of old and new charm. The rooms are beautiful with ocean facing balconies. It has a fantastic terrace overlooking the water for breakfast or for drinks in the afternoon. You can happily sit and watch all the goings on from this wonderful balcony.
The staff are fantastic and the whole place is spotlessly clean.
The location is perfect with the beach directly in front and the piazza, church and shops just around the corner. The front rooms are sound proof which is wonderful.

Room Tip: The front rooms have balconies overlooking the water.

We checked into the Hotel Residence and 2 days later, we noticed bug bites all over our bodies. We checked and bugs were everywhere. We brought this up to the hotel, who quickly dismissed this as mosquitoes and then told them we probably brought them with us. These were no mosquitoes! They were tiny little bed bugs you could literally see crawling all over the bedding. They refused to change our room, our sheets or mattress. They only gave us a plug in inspect repellent, which was absolutely ineffective. Francisco and the rest of the staff was very rude and dismissive throughout our stay. My husband had to shave his head to get rid of the bed bugs and we left the majority of our clothing at the hotel when we left. After he did, he shook his head on the counter and tons of bugs dropped out. It was like a horror movie.
What was most disturbing was the hotel's blase attitude about bed bugs, customer service or the sanitary conditions of the hotel. The policy of having to leave your key at the front desk in full view on a high traffic street is not exactly comforting so we had to carry our I-pads, etc... with us. Also, it made it inconvenient for charging electronics and cell phones b/c the electricity comes on only when the key is in the slot. Could not have been more disappointed in this hotel. I would steer clear of Hotel Residence. It was a horrible experience

Great location and view. Breakfast is good. Our room was ocean front, few steps from the marina or bus station. Hotel is very cute and has a lot of antique details that make it interesting. Amalfi is beautiful, but you don't need more than half day or a day there.

Room Tip: We had ocean view room and it was great. They have room service coming to make your bed before you g...

The unbeatable location right next to the center of Amalfi, right in front of the beach! Great hospitality! The room was clean, spacious and comfortable. Amazing views of Amalfi town and the coast, breakfast on the terrace with a wonderful sea view and attentive service. The room was clean, spacious and comfortable. The views from our room and the balcony were incredible! Staff was extremely helpful to show us directions, help with trips, etc. Thanks to Francesco and Vittorio that made our stay one of the best experiences ever!

Room Tip: Room #7 has incredible views and 2 balconies

Stayed 5 nights in October 2013. The location was perfect for us. Right in the epicenter of Amalfi. Loved the busy scene with buses, ferries, cars, motorinos and tourists with the beautiful background of beach, harbour and the Mediterranean. Nice big balcony, actually two in our room. Had the doors open every night but the heavy and dark blue curtains did a good job reducing street noise and light. Really nice bathroom with Jacuzzi. Good breakfast buffet served outside on the covered terrace. The hotel is recently renovated and what a good job they did. Nice classic style. Very friendly staff and with excellent local knowledge. The only small glitch was that the Wi-Fi didn't cover our balcony.
Will definitely come back when we are in that incredibly beautiful part of Italia

The location is very central and in front of the beach.
The room was very clean and the bathroom was big and modern.
The bed was comfortable.
The breakfast in the terrace is very nice with sea view.
One guy of the reception (I don't remenber the name) has a lack of patience while explaining how the parking works.
You have to park your car in a payed parking garage from a walking distance of 300 meters (5 min): 20 Euros per night.

We ended our vacation in Amalfi with a great stay at this Hotel. We had a corner room with a large terrace with table and chairs on one side and a balcony overlooking the street on the other. Both sides had great views of the ocean and the town. It was extremely clean and the service was excellent. The outside breakfast was very good in a pleasant atmosphere. It is within short walking distance of shopping, restaurants and the water.

Room Tip: We had the corner room on the second floor; #15 I think.
