“Hidden gem, prestine room with ornate italian characteristics”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2011

We stayed here for 2 nights. The location is perfect - central in Amalfi. The hotel staff were very helpful, friendly and recommended good restaurants, walks and must see nearby places. We opted to use their shuttle service to Naples airport which was organised without any hassels or problems. Although a little pricey, it took the stress out of getting buses and trains to Naples at the crack of dawn. The rooms were spotless, a decent size, in perfect decorative order and came with a distant view of the sea. The only one minor complaint was that we had to change rooms on our second night, but this was not a big deal and the hotel staff moved our belongings for us. Overally we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and found it excellent value for money.

This review is LONG overdue, in fact, 2 1/2 years overdue, but felt it deserved a belated review anyhow! We were married in Amalfi in the summer of 2008, and we occupied 5 of the rooms here during our wedding week. Everything was absolutely beautiful. The staff was courteous. The breakfast was simple, yet perfect while we enjoyed it out on the terrace. The rooms were beautifully decorated and made for great "getting ready" photos the day of the wedding. Great location close to the center of Amalfi, yet on a quite street. The only downside was the hike up the stairs. Shouldn't be a problem for most, but if you have knee problems, may take a while to go up. Nonetheless, I would stay here again without a doubt!

My partner and I stayed at the Residenza del Duca for 5 nights at the end of December 2010, taking in the New Year celebrations in Amalfi.
The hotel is conveniently situated in the centre of this very charming town, just a short walk from the bus terminus by the harbour. It comprises the top floor of an old residential building; our room looked out over a small square with a glimpse of the sea beyond. Above all, it was very quiet, aside from the church bells ringing from early morning. There is no lift access and thus various flights of stairs to negotiate so I would not advise the hotel for those who may struggle with steps.
The hotel is very charming and the owners could not be more helpful. A good breakfast is served. Accommodation could not be faulted; comfortable beds, traditional furniture, tea/coffee-making facilities, a very good shower-room with effective shower, everywhere impeccably clean.
There are many restaurants in close proximity and all recommendations given to us by the hotel were very good.
I feel that the Residenza del Duca offers very good value for money and is an excellent choice for visitors wishing to explore the Amalfi coast. I would also add that the local bus network is very good and reasonable in price so a car is not necessary for exploring the towns along the coast (and parking a car is a challenge around here).

I have stayed here several times over the past few years. The welcome is always warm, the rooms are very comfortable and the breakfast fantastic. The suite has a fantastic terrace and great views. The location is also superb... just a few minutes from the buses and ferries, yet in a quiet backstreet away from all the noise of the main street. Yes, there are some stairs to climb, but it is worth it!! I will definitely be returning here when next in Amalfi!!

My husband and I stayed there December 22-27, 2010. Great location, lovely rooms (with a terrace!), simple but fresh breakfast. The owners Gerardo and his son Andrea were very nice. On Christmas day they left a bottle of prosecco and candles for us, which we thought was so sweet. We absolutely had a great experience and would recommend this B & B to anyone.

"The Residenza del Duca"
What an amazing and wonderful place.! It really is an ancient noble palace of the 26th century so well done to offer wi fi and satellite Tv if you want it and you won't even notice it for the fine artwork, tile work, crown moldings, hospitality, if you don't. We stayed in the "Antonio Piccolomini Room" , named after the nephew of Pope Pius 11. The double windows opened out onto a view of the water, fishing boats, and directly below the town square. Church bells drifted into the window along with the salty breeze. The room was so well done with quality and such attention to detail. The bathroom had beautiful tiles and a full body shower . Plush towels, high end toiletries, and even soft slippers are provided.
Geraldo, Carmela, and the entire family genuinely make you feel as though you are staying in their home and are honored guests. Gracious, kind, attentive, generous.
I have worked in and trained others for the "tourist industry" and Residenza del Duca is just excellent.
