We stayed at the Hotel for 5 nights at the end of Oct 2009 - our first trip to the Amalfi coast. After a flight to Naples and a tiring car journey we were welcomed by the Hotel owner Antonio with those magic words - come, relax sit on the terrace and I'll bring you a drink!
The views are unbelievable! We visisted lots of places along the Amalfi coast but none better than from our balcony - have a look at the web site for the pics - they are 100% accurate!
Antonio and his brother were wonderful hosts, nothing was too much trouble and we had a fantastic stay. Internet access is freely available, the home style italian cooking was brilliant (especially the pasta fagiole!). and the atmosphere in the Hotel was relaxed and easy going .There was free parking space - which is a big deal on the Amalfi coast. and overall it was a great experience and great value.
Praiano is a picturesque village strung along the coast road. The Hotel is situated on the east side of the town but restaurants like "Le Brace are on the west side of town (approx 1.5 km away along a dark and busy road). I recommend using the very efficient local buses to go to and fro - there is a Tabachi 50m from the hotel where you can get the tickets but get an accurate timetable!
The Hotel is a great base to visit the lovely towns of the Amalfi coast - Positano, Amalfi, Ravello etc and it's a wonderful relaxing place to stay. We'll always remember the early evenings, sipping prosecco on the restaurant terrace - fantastic! - go see for yourself!
We're definitely going back.
