“Excellent Hotel in Amalfi”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2006

Amalfi, for those who have not visited it, is a pretty town between Salerno and Sorrento on the Amalfi coast. To get there involves a white knuckle drive along the coast road from either town, but it is certainly worth it (if you find driving in Italy disturbing enough, take the SITA bus and keep your eyes closed).
Unlike Positano which is all but closed out of season, Amalfi soldiers on and gives the impression that there is more to it than tourism alone. We stayed at the Hotel Centrale which is directly opposite the Duomo and has fantastic views of the town square. The hotel is run by the charismatic Gino and his family and is excellent in every respect – I’m not sure why it doesn’t show up on Tripadvisor, but would warrant a five star rating in each category despite being a three star establishment. The rooms are clean, air conditioned and comfortable (ours also had a superb view) and the management could teach a few others how to do things properly.
The restaurant scene is a little limited out of season, but you will still find at least ten to choose from ranging from quite expensive to very reasonable. There is a small, but well stocked supermarket off the main street and an internet café with friendly manageress (and yellow Labrador) also in the main street.
Amalfi is a great destination for a long weekend out of season and within easy day trips are Sorrento, Capri, Positano and Ravello.
