“A Room With a View”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012

This old paper making factory makes a lovely hotel, although no clues now exist as to its history. The staff are very polite and helpful. (We returned to our room one day to find a leak in our bathroom, and it was attended to within 3 minutes of making a phone call to reception.)
As previous reviewers have mentioned, it is worth requesting/paying for a sea view room.
The breakfast consisted of a comprehensive buffet catering for all European tastes.
Evening dinner offered plenty of choice, with a menu changed daily.
We found the cocktails comparatively generous and inexpensive when compared to other places we have visited.
The hotel offers a free transfer service, several times a day, to Amalfi. This is great if you plan a trip to Capri, as you can catch the return service back to the hotel in the evening.
Having hired a car from Naples, we managed to drive ourselves to most places. But, I guess the Amalfi Coast Road is not for the faint hearted! It certainly adds to the experience!

We arrived from the Salerno side, and I would say that Hotel Marmorata would be more accurately addressed as Minori rather than Ravello. Ravello is another 5km further on up the mountain side. So to suddenly come upon a sign for the hotel on the road side about 1.5km outside Minori, was quite a surprise. Negotiatng the narrow/steep and winding driveway was interesting, but the staff then took the keys and parked the car somewhere safe.
The front of the hotel doesn't do it justice, so it was a great relief to exit the narrow lift into a reception area which looked out over the sea.
There are lots of places to sit and admire the views, from the terraces above, where you can also eat/drink, to the terraces below where you can sun bath, and swim.
We had a great time, and have no hestitation in recommending Hotel Marmorata.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a (sea) view.

Away from the eaches and crowds and on it's own rocky shore. The hlteo is better than any of the in town hotels where we have stayed. There is no beach, but there is a nice area to sit out in the sun and also excellent for swimming. The rooms vary in quality, but who goes to the Amalfi coast to sit in a room?
Staff is great and everything was clean and well-cared for.

Room Tip: Most rooms have views and you'll certainly want a view.

Id promised for many years to take my wife to the Italian Riviara so wanted a nice hotel. I came across this one by accident while searching the web. The hotel is in a stunning location, clinging to the cliff face overlooking the Amalfi coast, open the shuuers in my room and I was looking straight down into the sea. The room was clean, spacious and well equipped, including a spa bath. The staff are all very friendly and helpful, the restaurant serves lovely traditional Italian food and great buffet breakfast.
I would recommend hiring a car if you're staying here because access is via a main road some distance out of the town, tho the local bus does stop right outside.
As well as the Riviara coast this place is ideal for other sights such as Vesuvious, Pompi, Herculanium.
I will hopefully visit this hotel again soon

Friendly and efficient staff, together with a beautiful location over the sea [and below the road so that you get no noise other than the sound of water - blissful]. A friend and I stayed for a long weekend visiting Ravello, Sorrento and Pompei. The hotel was a perfect base from which to travel around. In the evening the meal was beautifully presented and we received the utmost courtesy - as two middle aged ladies we are used to being invisible in so many establishments, but at the Marmorata they observed the old-world courtesy and we were made to feel valued and treasured instead of an inconvenience. I will definitely stay here again and plan on dragging my husband here next time for a romantic break.

We came here for our twenty fifth wedding anniversary in June 2012. The hotel is fantastic, everywhere is immaculate. Excellent selection for breakfast. Beautiful views across the bay whilst sunbathing on the terraces. Staff very helpful especially the guy who worked the tables around the pool area/terraces. Tour to Capri definetely worth it.

This wonderful hotel is located right on the see, near Amalfi. We had a great relaxing time, dipping in the sea, enjoying the jacuzzi, eating amazing food and sipping delicious wine. The staff is very nice and after a few days you feel at home. Today I will be leaving and I wish this vacation could not end...thank you so much hotel Marmorata, I hope to come back soon!!!

great great food, especially fish recipes; great staff, polite and very warm, and very ready to give you good tips on places to see/go and things to do/buy. beautiful location with the chance to hire a boat too, very quiet. rooms are nice and clean, a little small (and the toilet is small too). you're provided with anything you need, seaside towel too...
not suitable if you want to enjoy the nightlife, we always had to take bus to amalfi and taxi (expensive!!) to get back, if you're looking for a fun&seaside trip amalfi - praiano/positano or maiori are probably more suitable towns. hiring a scooter would be a good solution for brave nights out ;D good position anyway if you want to move and experience new beaches every day (and you should see all the different places there, otherwise you'd miss something), because it's basically halfway between vietri and positano and the bus stops just above the hotel entrance.
a little suggestion: reach it via salerno - maiori and NOT sorrwento - amalfi because the latter is soooooooooo longer!
