“Nice and great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2014

This hotel was nice, clean but a bit on the tiny side for 3 adults and 2 children. Needless to say you don't spend much time in your room so we made it work out. The shower was fantastic, hot water with steady pressure a commodity in Europe. The location is great, the parking was expensive but your hands are tied if you plan visiting Amalfi with a car. Amadeo and Anna were fantastic hosts, they provided us with alot of information.

This hotel was in a great location in the centre of Amalfi. It was immaculately clean with a comfortable bed and spacious bathroom. However, we did read that there was a breakfast terrace but when we arrived the terrace was used a storage for old bikes and some rubbish. It was cleaned and organised later in our stay but we didn't realise. We were there in mid-April so it was quite early for tourist season. Friendly staff, clean rooms, and a good location though.

Room Tip: Rooms away from the main street are much quieter.

Ideally situated, helpful with information, breakfast fantastic,
Clean and tidy and amazing staff and will bring food or drink to room
Rooms are quiet even though not far from square, walking distant to beach buses and ferry.
There are stairs to go to room and will bring bags from room to taxi or ferry

The stay didn't get off to a great start when we found the place closed up & the member of staff said he had no reservation from us, after phoning the boss who seemed to have a vague recollection of a booking we did get a room! Having said that the room was great, clean with a view down the Main Street and had all that we needed, Amalfi is small and totally given over to tourism so nothing is lacking for the traveller. Handy for buses along the coast and in summer the ferries too. Take a hike up to Ravello or hop on the local bus & walk down well worth it. Finding the hotel is easy, its in the Main Street but the door is up steep alleyway steps (turn left at the roman column) round the back. Apart from the booking problem the breakfast was standard but OK and the roof terrace was unusable and full of dumped paint tins and an old bike, it should be open for summer was the answer. Very nice hotel but out of season semi closed.

Excellent stay in stylish hotel with friendly staff and a lovely spacious room. Brilliant location near the Duomo but very quiet. i really enjoyed staying here. Only a small hotel so there may not be much choice of rooms.

It's a good hotel. The room is nice, pretty big, very clean, has good A/C, minibar and comfy bed. Small balcon also (no interesting view...). And it's inside Amalfi, so you have plenty of restaurants and shops around. Breakfast is fine too - cold cuts, corn-flakes, croissants, coffee etc.
Staff is extremely kind, but lacks in English knowledge, and we found it a bit difficult to discuss some of them about transportation options to Salerno.
Now, it depends what are the expectations from your holiday: if you wish to do some hiking, travel around the coast, inland and up to the hills - it's a very good choice for a hotel to use as your base (and it's much less pricey than others) . However, if you're in Amalfi for the beach, and plan to have a hotel with some leisure facilities that you'll use - don't even consider this one, as it has no such facilities, and it doesn't even have a sea view..

As the title suggests, we never got to stay here but that was not for lack of trying!

We booked our double room on the 21st June through Hostel Bookers and paid our 10% deposit online and subsequently received the confirmation email... Job done!

Sadly no...on the 27th August we received an email saying that the double room we had booked 2 months ago was not available and that they did have a triple room available at nearly twice the price and would like to know whether we would like that instead. I said we would like to take the room but we would not pay twice the price for a triple room when there were only 2 of us anyway. I also asked why it had taken 2 months to tell us that the room was not available.

Various emails exchanged over 2 weeks with the last one being received on the 15th September restating they do not have a double room available. I checked all major booking websites on the 16th and there was both a double room and a triple room available on all sites. I sent them a screen shot but have yet to have a response.

We only ever asked for them to honour the original price and not charge us for a bed we would never use and a breakfast we would not eat, seemingly not a sensible request.

I can only assume that occupancy was looking good and they were attempting to up the premium for all the advance bookers knowing that they might be able to secure a better last minute booking should we not want to pay more.

We were due to stay there in 10 days - having had to phone around all of the Amlfi hotels to find a last minute room. I can say that every other hotelier in the area has been charming, helpful and has tried their best to find us a room, the only exception seems to be Hotel Antica Republica.

We have taken our money elsewhere - I suggest you do too.

More than happy to forward on the emails to anyone should they want a read!
