“Misleading Website; Terrible Service; Average dining views”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

The dining room has a nice view, as advertised, but that's where this hotel stops being honest. The hotel website is extremely misleading from using very wide-angle lenses to give the impression the rooms are larger than they are (most rooms we saw couldn't fit luggage in). Your "ocean view" for most rooms is actually through the -Entrance Door!!- through the kitchen, bar or dining room. You have to, of course, close the entrance door for any type of privacy because they make food or drinks 2 ft. outside your room. Staff will wake you up early (making food outside your door) and you do not feel like you have any privacy as you can hear guests in other rooms quite easily. Do not go here if you are looking for any type of intimate retreat.

We saw lots of guests complaining and hotel management offered a bottle of wine (which is cheap in Italy) but basically shrugged it off and walked away while people were talking with them. Very poor service.

I was also shocked that they have no concept of security of personal information - watch as they leave your passport in a common wooden key box for all to access and flip through.

Friends of ours stays in another hotel in Amalfi and theirs was same price but much better quality. Overall, this is really low value. Don't be fooled by their misleading pictures - check out my pictures for a sense of what it is really like.

Room Tip: Get them to take pictures of your room specifically AND what it looks like from inside the room look...

It is beautiful but so is all of the Amalfi coast.
My seaview room has a wonderful view overlookng the sea and is set upon a majestic cliff high above the beach below. 450 steps to the beach or 30 euro per day per person for a lift and a beach chair. The sun is gone by 5. There is no restraunt and the walk to Amalfi town is 2 km on a difficult narrow windy road. The taxi is 10 euro each way. Bus service is sufficient. Our sea view room is smaller than any cruise ship room and hasn't the efficient storage needed for such a small space. There is free wifi, no mini bar with our room and the breakfast is fair. When comparing euro for euro there many more convient optionshat maintain a wonderful view. So if you want the "Most romantic" room and have no reason to leave it stay at the La Ninfa. If you want to eat and sight see there are many better options. Ciao..

The warm welcome from Maurizio, the wonderful housekeeping of Gilda to the great smile and morning coffee from Maria really gave Hotel La Ninfa a wounderful holiday feel. Added to this the superb view, the hotel was excellent. The room brightly decorated and functional. The location was what we expected, a 20 min walk to Amalfi or a short bus ride home. Care should be taken with the bus timetable as we found there might be a long wait or finished for the night.....and and an uphill walk home!

Room Tip: A seaview room is a must

I loved to stay in Hotel La Ninfa. First, all hotel staff were so friendly and polite, helpful and smiling. We arrived late in the evening and were very well welcomed, we got special price on request. In the morning we had the best view in any other Italian hotel: the Amalfi coast, blue waters, beautiful flowers and great buffet breakfast. I totally recommend this hotel. Very good price, although a 20minute walk from Amalfi center, its ok and can be fun to walk down and up the hill. There is fast free wifi Internet on the room. We could also park the car in front of the hotel although just on the narrow main road.

Room Tip: You can get a room with a view. as we got late at night and without any previous booking, we got the...

I worked with a woman, Maria who was able to give fantastic customer service! I highly recommend this hotel to anyone looking to stay on the Almalfi Coast. Traveling from DC, this was a perfect and unique hotel that provided everything needed for a very comfortable stay.

And if you need anything, ask for Maria - she is the best.

Hands down, La Ninfa Hotel is one of the most beautiful boutique hotels i have ever stayed in. I have traveled all over the world and never had such an enjoyable trip. We found the hotel on TripAdvisor and I am usually hesitant. But after an incredible vacation, we had to be sure to let others know. We look forward to visiting this SUPER cute hotel on our next stay in the Amalfi Coast. Thank you again Maria and Maurizio for your great service.
