“Perfect location and great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

We stayed here for 4 nights at the end of June and would definitely stay here again. Perfect location with lovely and clean rooms and terrace. Best of all was the friendly service. Nothing was too much trouble from organising our luggage to be picked up from the port, to having our laundry picked up to recommending walks and helping with transport. And all with smiles on their faces. Don't hesitate to book this accommodation!

Travelled back in 2010 and stayed 6 days in this little gem. The terrace was perfect for a pizza and wine dinner for two; something we will never forget. The hosts were wonderful and allowed us to change rooms two days into our stay for a different view and experience. Lovely breakfast and lemon cello to go!

We visited Amalfi in November, when some hotels have already closed for the season. We were delighted to find the Residenza del Duca just off the main street. It is not a hotel as such, being located on one level on the top floor of an old building, but had everything one could want from any hotel, and more. We had a large room with windows onto a piazza below and views to the sea, for a really reasonable price. Large, well equipped bathroom, and, unusually for this part of the world, our own tea and coffee making facilities. A simple breakfast is served on the terrace or, since it was quite cold on one our our days, inside in a small breakfast room. What really made this hotel stand out for us was the friendliness and helpfulness of the owners. They allowed us to use the hotel phone to make a call to Rome, at no charge, and were helpful to us in finding accommodation in Rome. There are quite a few steps up to the hotel but that is common in Italy, particularly in this area. We were also lucky in that our weather in November/December was just perfect.

This was a great find. No great view (although we could see a bit of the sea from our room) and no pool, but with 6-7 rooms and staff which make you feel totally at home, in a perfect location. The room was a decent size and nicely done up, as was the bathroom. Breakfast on the terrace was very nice. The staff was super helpful about train/bus/boat times, booking tickets, recommending restaurants, etc etc. Could not have been nicer! If I go back to Amalfi, I would stay here again. My only two negative points would be that it is quite noisy late at night and early morning, and the AC did not work very well so the only way to keep the room less warm was by keeping the French doors open. Also, you need to be fit: 70 steps, no lift, to get up to the hotel's floor.

You cannot get a better location than this. One block off the main square and on an upper floor of an old building, you are well-situated to walk to the bus or boat connections (5 minutes) and within reach of many restaurants and stores.

We really enjoyed our stay in a very clean, compact room with a view of the narrow streets and within ear shot of several church bells. It's a long hike up the stairs but the hotel offers a luggage service to and from the boat/bus terminal which worked great. Breakfast on the terrace was a real treat and staying down a back street in an historic building really added to our experience in this beautiful town. Would strongly recommend.

Stayed there for 4 nights, was lucky to get the room with a balcony. Staff were very helpful and pleasant and the morning breakfast was superb. The only hotel out of the 7 hotels we stayed in throughout our 3 week trip in Italy that came with a kettle. Nicely positioned in the heart of Amalfi.
