“A jewel on the sea”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2009

We loved this nice atmosphere and the warmharted staff. The rooms are furnished beautifuly, the location is just magic. Having breakfast on the sunny terasse was a highlight. The restaurant next to the hotel is an excellent choice.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2008

We stayed here for 5 nights and would definitely recommend it to anyone wanting a reasonably priced hotel in Amalfi.

We spent ages choosing a hotel, having started with visions of staying somewhere where we might sit on a balcony overlooking the beautiful azure sea with wine glasss in hand. In the end, cost ruled the decision ! So, this hotel does not have a sea view, but it does have genuine charm.

The hotel is in the "main" Amalfi street , so is right in the midst of the hustle and bustle of Amalfi. We were told by another couple who were in a room overlooking tjhe street that their room was very noisy, but we were in a room at the back which was quieter. Not quiet, though ... in the morning the noise of everyday life starts early and seems to echo off all the closely packed buildings in the town, but we were in Amalfi to explore and not to sleep late or stay in our room during the day, so it didn't worry us. On the other hand, it was a bonus being right in the middle of the township because we could drop back to the hotel easily if we needed to.

Our room was beautifully decorated and quite large, with a big bathroom, and shuttered doors opening out on to a small tiled area. (All the rooms have names - our one at the back was called Il Guidice ).

The hotel staff were very friendly (as was the resident dog!).
Manuel, who does the night shift and the breakfast, was especially friendly and helpful. One morning we caught the bus to Pompei, which left earlier than the usual breakfast time - when Manuel heard we were catching an early bus, he offered to serve breakfast early for us. It was one of those little gestures that made this hotel a great place to stay.

Breakfast was fresh and had a good choice of cereal, yoghurt and rolls, along with freshly made espresso or cappucino. In the summer breakfast is served on the rooftop terrace but when we were there (October) it was in a small room on the ground floor. Previous reviewers have complained about this room - there's no doubt it's small, but when we were there not all the rooms were occupied (and , anyway, not everyone has their breakfast at the same time) , so it was not crowded.

This is an excellent choice if you want an attractive, reasonably priced small hotel with friendly caring staff.

We were actually booked to stay in the Villa Annalara but on arrival we were told the hot water had broken down at this hotel and that we were being transfered to the Repubblica, and what a bonus this was, no offence to the Annalara as it looked like a loveley hotel, but by being transfered we found ourselves in a much more central hotel. The location was perfect, although the church bells did wake us at 7am every morning, the room was spotless and the staff were very friendley and very helpfull.

Situated right on the main street in Amalfi, about 50m from the seafront, Antica Repubblica is a very nice, clean hotel. The hotel staff are very friendly, especially Manuel, who runs the breakfasts, and Nuvola, the hotel's dog. The rooms are well furnished, and very clean. The breakfasts offer cereals, croissants, fresh rolls and more.

There is no sea view, and due to the hotel's position it is a bit noisy in the mornings when everyone in Amalfi is heading to work or school. However, this does mean that it is very easy to get to the restaurants and shops in the town.

Hotel Antica Repubblica is a wonderful place to stay in Amalfi. Right off the main piazza, yet a world apart. The hotel room was loaded with everything you could imagine - super, fresh and stylish decoration and bedding, A/C (very necessary in summer), up-to-date bathroom and fixtures, multiple places for suitcase and clothin storage, in-room safe with its own key. The breakfast up on the terrace is personally presented, complete with super cappuccino/espresso. The staff was very helpful and friendly. We would definately return to Hotel Antica Repubblica.

(p.s. try the restaurant next door, La Perla, great seafood and friendly and knowledgeable staff)
