This is a really cute hotel. The owner is really sweet. But please note, this is more of a bed and breakfast then a hotel. Here are the good points: AMAZING VIEW; not TOO far of a walk to town; cute private and free beach; free internet; friendly staff; VERY clean! Bad points: We had an amazing view in our room....but our room was SOOO tiny and we barely had room to move - the view WAS incredible though; our shower as well was soooo tiny that you could barely move around (and we are not large people at all) but it was very clean too; while the walk isn't TOO far going into the town of Amalfi, it is quiet a trek back up to the hotel on the way back and the bus is ALWAYS crowded with people and you will probably be standing; the breakfast was not good...stale bread, warm yogurt, not a large variety at all - but it all was presented beautifully. We arrived by fairy from Sorrento and had heavy luggage...taxis at the marina in Amalfi wanted to charge us 20 euro to take us to the hotel which was ridiculous and the hotel even said it shouldn't be more than 10 euro. We ended up taking the SITA bus (which is great because it lets off right at the hotel) but it is ALWAYS packed full and we were standing (our bags we put under the bus). We made friends with some nice people at the hotel from England who agreed on all our points...hated the breakfast and felt that the hotel should offer perhaps at 3 set times a day a shuttle to and from downtown amalfi. Like i said earlier...going TO amalfi isn't so bad but coming back is different - not to mention there are barely any sidewalks and you have a very narrow road with cars, buses, and motorcycles zooming past you as you walk on the edge. You can catch the SITA bus to Positano as well but again, always crowded...the hotel staff said that it isn't always very crowded but everytime we went it was. After a certain hour in the evening, you can order food from the hotel restaurant anymore which is typically not a problem for us but because it had rained all day we didn't want to go anywhere by foot (or crowded bus) and we noticed that the hotel had a menu for food that they pick up or have delivered....well, we were too late. For such a small hotel to not provide certain things to their guests when it is raining out and the only real means of transportation is by foot and it is almost a mile away and all outdoors when you get there seems silly and unfortunate. All in all though it was fine...the hotel had very cute amenities with their logo on it (no conditioner though). i would recommend this hotel but just know that you get what you pay for. Hotels in the Amalfi Coast are not cheap...we payed about 95 euro a night and well....while that isn't nothing...there were definitely no frills. Oh yeah, one last things...there is NOT somebody always there that can answer all your questions...sometimes there is someone but then they don't speak english. So you don't have 24 hour service. Not a terrible hotel...but not the best. Most important was that it was clean and great view!
