“Amazing views at affordable price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 weeks ago

We stayed here for two nights on a weekend trip to Amalfi, and loved it! The room with balcony has breathtaking 180 degree views, and we enjoyed just sitting there looking out, and enjoying the breeze. The bathroom was the best bathroom I've ever used with windows that again display the stunning surroundings, and a jetted jacuzzi tub with rainforest shower.The breakfast room has floor to ceiling windows to enjoy the view also. No, it is not a luxury hotel - but it's a quaint, lovely, and affordable hotel with lots of character. One tip regarding not the hotel but Amalfi - I recommend going during high season! We went in late February and had to pay ridiculous prices for a taxi because when we arrived in Amalfi the buses were on strike and we also were dismayed to find that many restaurants were not open during this time.

Room Tip: Get the room with balcony!

Just a terrible experience. We booked four nights here through American airlines airline miles. The entrance to the room was on the main Amalfi highway about a foot from the road. My husband called it the death march every time we left the room. We had a tiny room with no nightstands and no place to put our bags but a tiny closet. The TV didn't work. The Wi-Fi didn't work. There was no water pressure in the shower and the room was dirty. The bed was like sleeping on a board. The "owner" said we could switch rooms but the only choice was a room with no windows, only a glass door that opened right into the "lobby" so no privacy. When we tried to check out the next morning Suddenly Mauritzio was nowhere to be found. It was probably the worst hotel experience we've ever had.

For the price, the room was decent and had fantastic views. Unfortunately, the room was detached from the main area of the hotel and we had to walk up the street for breakfast or if we needed anything as there was no service phone in the room. Would recommend if just looking for something mainly clean and inexpensive but nothing else.

My son stayed at this hotel with his girlfriend for 4 nights based on reviews they had read. They both loved the place. It is exactly as expected - small, quiet, fantastic views and ideally positioned for a stroll into Amalfi. Maurizio the manager was extremely helpful as I had given him incorrect flight arrival time and he had sent a taxi to collect my son which resulted in the taxi returning to Amalfi without him and my son having to pay extortionate airport taxi fare of 150 Euros. This should have cost 110 Euros pre-booked via Maurizio. As a result Maurizio kindly did not charge my son for the taxi he originally sent to collect him which I feel is indicative of how accommodating Maurizio is

We stayed here for four nights as part of a B&B package in mid October and were disappointed with a lot of the service we received.

We arrived to find the hotel door locked and spent a long time trying to get hold of someone to let us in (doorbell does not work, tel number on door not recognised, and no direction as to how to reach someone). Luckily a local nearby saw us and managed to find a lady who let us in.

The hotel itself is quirky, bright and clean, and boasts exceptional views of the Amalfi coastline. It is also located just outside of town in a quiet and peaceful location. We were unable to book the balcony room but were allocated a large room next door. This room was clean and well presented, with two big windows looking out onto the sea (great sunrise views in the morning). However, this seemed to be the only positive thing about our stay.

We were told that there was no parking facility for our hire car and that if we didn't want it towed away (as all roads around Amalfi are controlled) we should pay 20 euros per day to park it in their garage. This seemed outrageous to us as we were guests in the hotel but we seemingly had no other choice.

The breakfast in the morning was a limited selection of pastries and cakes. Whilst this didn't bother us, the attitude of the waitress did. The young girl who served us was quite rude when we asked her for any kind of assistance. There was no acknowledgement from her as we entered the breakfast room and when we got up to ask her whether we could have a coffee, her response every time was rude and sarcastic. One morning we arrived an hour into breakfast time to find a quarter of the buffet left. When we asked the waitress if we could have a croissant, her reply was literally "no, all gone". She then turned her back and walked off. This left my partner and I with nothing else to nibble on but a few tiny biscuits.

To conclude, this hotel boasts an excellent location and is a nice 10 minute walk from the bustle of Amalfi. However, the hotel does not appear to care if their guests actually enjoy their stay. This hotel would benefit by advertising as a room-only or hostel-style accommodation, where guests do not expect any service.

This is definitely not an hotel! Not staffed all of the time - just a B&B. Poor breakfast and unhelpful staff ( except one lovely girl on evening duty). Beware when booking "classic room" as they have no windows only a frosted glass door that opens onto the reception area. Our bathroom had old soap and a used razor left in the shower and the bedside table was not very clean.
On the plus side, fantastic views!

despite of its being a small hotel, but its magical and its sightseeing is amazing, breakfast is full of sugar but you eat while the sea is just below you.

for sea access is available you have to pay for it and you'll get a sea bed and a towel.

so close to the heart of amalfi.

It's easier to stay there with a light baggage

Room Tip: Rooms with a Balcony have a magnificent view
