“Amazing terrace for breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013 via mobile

Very kind people. the highlight is certainly the terrace for breakfast . Location is perfect, central yet silent and everything readily accessible. Then of course Amalfi speaks for itself, it is such a dainty and romantic location.

This hotel has a fantastic location right in the centre of Amalfi overlooking the main square. However this does make it noisy, our room was at the back, but it was still quite noisy and a lot of clocks / bells chiming. The hotel staff were helpful and there is free wi-fi in the lobby. The room was clean, but definitely no frills. Air conditioning was noisy but didn't seem to actually cool the room at all. The breakfast was not great with coffee, which can only be described as horrible and the food selection was poor, but the location on the roof terrace was spectacular. I would stay here again, but don't expect luxury or a good night's sleep!

Room Tip: Back of the hotel doesn't have views of the square and is still quite noisy but a lot quieter th...

My husband wasn't thrilled with this no-frills hotel but I wasn't overly disappointed. Rooms are definitely no-frill. Average beds, nothing special in terms of furnishings. The lobby is small and bare bones. Wifi access is limited to the lobby as well. Our room did have a stunning view of the Cathedral of St. Andrew and piazza outside. Many other places to see in Italy before we return to Amalfi but I wouldn't be opposed to staying here again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the Cathedral. Beautiful!

The view to the Chiesa staircase was stunning, but the noise from the square was very loud. We stayed at 2nd floor. Nice breakfast room, but with a poor selection. Nice friendly staff, but the landlord was more busy watching le tour de France than taking care of business

Fabulous accomodations - in the heart of all the buzz - unexpectedly enjoyed the feast day celebration of st. anthony while we were there - i loved the ringing of the basilica bells - the breakfast on the roof top terrace was fabulous! wonderful cappuccino & croissants - some people are annoyed by the 'constant' ring of church bells but i loved it - spotlessly clean - and everyone was very friendly & helpful -

Room Tip: i loved the cornerfront room withthe balcony open to the piazza & windows down the side street -

This hotel is located in the heart of the Amalfi , opposite the Cathedral of St. Andrew. The hotel is located in a very old building, 14th century construction. The rooms are not very big, but very comfortable and clean, the service was every day, everything was done perfectly. Breakfast is modest but very tasty.Every morning I enjoyed a great cappuccino and a beautiful view of the Cathedral of St. Andrew.I recommend this hotel to all visitors of Amalfi.

The view from the hotel is nice but if you are sensitive to noise I would not recommend sleeping here. The Church bell rings every 15 minutes and stops only from 22:00 to 7:00. We also heard noises from the street and the other rooms. It is very tough to sleep here.
As we were not pleased at all with the Hotel, we moved to another hotel in Amalfi, Albergo Sant Andrea, which was better.
While checking-out we had an issue with the price of the room. We had called the hotel in advance and had set-up a price (as they never reply to e-mails), but when we checked-out they charged us a higher price. They said there had never been any agreement on the price over the phone. On top, they charged us an even higher room fare than what was written at the reception.
By the way,in general, there is no one at the reception, and if there is someone they bearly speack any other language than Italian.

Room Tip: All rooms are noisy, not only the ones facing the Church.
