“View is great, but you better be in shape”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2009

Nice place and great people running and staying at the Le Palme - we met some other great guests and sat chatting for hours. But if you are not in great shape the stairs will be a major factor. No kidding!! There are about 300 stairs down from/up to the upper road and 800 down(or up if you are training for an Olympic event in stairclimbing) - yes 1100 steps altogether (and we stepped on every one - sigh) There is no easy way to get bags there but to carry them. We enjoyed our room and the quiet at night there - the view of Amalfi is simply breathtaking.

Did I mention the stairs?? OMG.

The price is very fair and our room was clean and comfortable. We ate dinner there twice and the food was simple but tasty. So if you are a hearty hiker, you'll likely love the place. Mid 50s and/or not the best of shape, take a pass.

Gorgeous views, amazing hospitality, quiet & picturesque location, great accomodation, delicious breakfast treats - a wonderful experience on all accounts. Be ready for the 300 steps - they'll reward you in their special own way with spectacular vista points and unspoiled natural beauties.
Grazie, Antonietta e Sonia!

I think all the previous reviews say it all, I can only add that whatever you need to do get to Le Palme Amalfi - train, bus, boat, bike, feet - whatever, do it and let Salvatore, Sonia and Antonietta show you one of the most memorable experiences of your life. Salvatore's fantastic restaurant in Atrani was amazing, the walks down the steps were inspiring and Antonietta's spirit and caring were second to none. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!

ok so firstly I'm not going to lie, there are a heck of a lot of steep stairs either down from the bus stop or up from the town.... however if you are willing to tackle these you will not be dissapointed..... this hotel is a little gem and i definately would go back......

the hospitality and rooms are excellent and the view is to die for.... I will never forget evenings on the terrace here!!

After a whole days travel from Rome via train, ferry and bus, the 300 steps down to the Le Palme Hotel from the top road was like crossing the finish line into paradise. We were greeted by our beautiful hostess Antoinetta, who had the most genuine caring smile. After a cold drink we were shown to our room, which was absolutely beautiful. The room was large, bright, and immaculately clean. A large whirlpool tub in the bathroom, gave the room a spa feeling. The view of the emerald green sea outside our patio doors was unbelievable. Breakfast every morning was delicious, with excellent cupuccino, and freshly baked pastries. The family owned Le Palme restaurant in Atrani was excellent as well. They even made a special birthday dessert for my husband. I would recommend the Le Palme Hotel to everyone. The only concern would be the stairs for a person with physical challenges. However, if you are fit, and enjoy adventure, then this Hotel is an absolute gem.

My daughter and I traveled from Rome to Amalfi (my graduation present to her) . Our stay was short but memorable. Not only for the beautiful views and relaxing atmosphere, but because of the wonderful people we met who own and run the hotel (bed and breakfast). We were made to feel like family and our every need was looked after and taken care of by Antonietta, Sonia and Salvatore. The hotel was immaculate, with a veranda that overlooked the Mediterranean with a gorgeous view of Amalfi bay. The water literally sparkled like Christmas tree lights in the morning as Sonia and Antonietta served breakfast.

Yes, you need to walk down stairs to get to it, but we had help with our bags going down and then going back up when we left. For my daughter and I we felt it was well worth it.

The food was good, the service great, the rooms immaculate, the view gorgeous and the people wonderful.

Oh and btw, plan on visiting Salvatore's restaurant where ever you stay in Amalfi, it's in the next town over but a short cab ride and has wonderful fresh seafood cooked up by Salvatore's brother. You won't regret it!

My husband and I had two nights at Le Palme in May 2009. The Amalfi coast is a stunning part of Italy. However beware that the driving is crazy, and at times very scary, with narrow roads and too many fast drivers!

Le Palme is situated on a hill out of Amalfi - we had quite a bit of trouble finding it as there are no signs on the road indicating its location. However, a helpful local kindly phoned Antoinetta who met us on the road up from the B&B. The room we had was spacious, and Antoinetta was very hospitable. We enjoyed having breakfast on the balcony - the views are incrediable.

If you have time we would definetely recommend visiting the church in Amalfi - it is a beautiful church. We would also highly recommend going to Pompeii city (city destroyed by colcanic eruption in 79AD) and Postitano (beautiful town with houses perched on the cliff).
