“Best hotel ever! Yes really!! ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2014

This hotel is hands down the best hotel we have stayed at in italy so far! It was a perfect location - as soon as you get off the ferry - it's a short walk and has a view of the water. The front door is in amongst shops on the lower level, so when you get off the ferry, go right and look up. The name is obvious on the second/third story. We laughed as clearly this hotel never gets backpackers - as we decided we were "glack packing" (glamour back packing) we carried only small back packs and stayed in lovely hotels like this! When we walked in the front door- they were a bit shocked and were extremely polite and professional. Tip: ask them for help and they will bend over backwards to help you! They are very quiet/formal and so you have to ask the first questions! The guys at the front counter were amazing - they had lots if tips, great restaurant suggestions, advice on tours, trains and ferries to catch, etc.

Our hotel room itself was lovely with high ceilings - not the short claustrophobic kind that you get in Europe - and the view to the water lovely. It's was clean, and they provide turn-down service, which was a lovely treat.

Breakfast. Sigh. Fantastic. Their breakfast room has a beautiful patio that lets tones of light in, and they have all these gorgeous antique mirrors around. However, what really was the best thing was the fantastic service the breakfast team provided. We stated here 4 nights, and after 2 days they started prepping my cappuccino before I even sat down. Fantastico! Check out was a breeze, and since it was so easily located to the centre of the town and ferries, it was all of a 5 min walk to the ferry/bus terminals - if that's what you needed (we did ferry).

So if you have a lot of luggage, this would be an incredibly easy haul. Or in our case, small backpacks! ;)

This is run by friendly staff with very comfortable rooms. The location is ideal and our room towards the back of the hotel was quiet. Our friends had a room on the street side of the hotel and they found this more noisey. Breakfast had a good selection of food and could be eaten on a lovely terrace all fresco if desired.

Room Tip: Avoid the ones on the street side of the hotel.

We really enjoyed our stay here. The service was excellent, from the waiters at breakfast, which is served on a lovely terrace overlooking the sea, to the housekeeping staff who kept our room in pristine condition. Clean towels twice a day and clean sheets every day. We stayed in a standard room, overlooking the sea front, but we found the room spacious and airy with a lovely balcony to sit on and watch the world go by. Yes you could sometimes hear noise at night but as the hotel is situated on the front overlooking a bus stop you do expect this, and when the door to the balcony was closed it certainly cut out most of the noise and we never had any problems sleeping. The hotel is convenient to catch a bus or ferry from and because it is on the seafront there is no walking up hills to return to your hotel at the end of a long day. We would certainly returned to the hotel if we ever visit Amalfi again.

It is difficult write anything bad about our experience in the Hotel Residence because we really had a very good time here. We stayed 5 nights beginning of November.

The hotel is absolutely central, located at the main street which runs along the Amalfi coast. However, we had no problem with noise at all (the door to the balcony seemed pretty well insulated).

My first experience of the hotel was that it has a really nice smell. It is in an old villa renovated and furbish in a style and so tastefully, which made us walk down the stairs each time we were leaving our room just to have the experience of the interior.

We booked a superior room. It was clean, large and nicely furnished, which included romantic vintage pieces, too. The bed was comfortable. We had a small balcony and our room was see view. The bathroom is super clean, too, and it had a jacuzzi bath tub which we enjoyed a lot :)
The breakfast room is in a big, nice old room with renaissance columns, it also has a very pleasant terrace facing the see. The hotel has no restaurant, which was not a problem for us. They have a lounge area in the evening with nice old furniture in one part of the same room which is used for breakfast.

The only improvement we can recommend is more choice at breakfast of meat and cheese. Other comments describe cold scrambled eggs, but in our case the eggs were OK.

But what we enjoyed most are the people in the hotel. Our friend at the breakfast was very nice, very helpful with all our questions regarding restaurants, markets nearby and others, and we had usually had a nice conversation each morning. He also knew after the second morning what we like and brought it to our table.
The same is true for the reception, as well. They were very friendly and helpful.

To conclude, the hotel was hard to leave it :)

Superb location on the coast road in the center of Amalfi. Close to all of Amalfi's restaurants and scenic attractions. Excellent room size and well appointed. Room 16 looks right out on to the beach. Staff were really friendly & accommodating. Breakfast served on a nice balcony overlooking the sea. The balcony location also acts as the bar / lounge.

Room Tip: Request a sea view room. Quieter rooms are to the rear of the hotel.

Had occasion to stay here and liked it so much extended my visit. Exceedingly clean, renovated and shiny inside. Rooms are chic, very nice breakfast and location. Ignore comments about noise, it is located in central area but they have modern double paned windows that completely eliminated even a hint of noise. superb service and help from front desk & restaurant waiters, the best. Would return again in a heartbeat.

My husband and I spent a week in Room 18 in early October 2013. Our patio doors opened onto a tiny terrace, and we were fascinated by our daily views of Amalfi from sunrise till after sunset - we observed cars, buses, ferries, pedestrians, scooters, the central fountain, cafes, the ocean, the pier, the promenade, the restaurants on the beach, fireworks, a thunder and lightning show… it was am amazing location to people-watch! In spite of all the entertainment outside, we could close the wooden doors and the room was then very quiet!
Our room was also neat and clean with a large closet for storage, and the bathroom was quite big with railings to hang up our hand washing!
We enjoyed the helpful staff - in particular Vittorio at the front desk, and Antonio for cappuccinos at breakfast and for nightcaps on the terrace in the evenings!
It was a great location to explore the rest of the Amalfi Coast by bus and ferry, and there were many great restaurants in the area too.
