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.
