“Wonderful experience ,Perfect location !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2013

The hotel was located right in the center,had a wonderful staff, we were there at the end of the season . I think we were the only clients in the hotel at that time but they put on a beautiful breakfast as if the the hotel was full! We had a car so we needed a hotel with parking and they fit the bill. The room was spacious and the view from our room was incredible! We can't wait to return!

Room Tip: Choose a room overlooking the gardens.

We had a lovely lunch with the best view in Ravello. The food was good and not very expensive. Friendly staff and good service. We had a starter and a pudding. A free taster starter and bread with water, beer and coffee. All came to just under 40 euros. Value for money

This was the second time we stayed at Hotel Rufolo & I highly recommend it. The location is superb, the service friendly & efficient. Very clean rooms. The restaurant & food was excellent. We would return without hesitation.

Our suite was lovely with an amazing view. We were thrilled to be able to hear some of the concerts from the Music Festival from our balcony. Glorious! We had good service during our visit. We spent our last evening at the hotel restaurant which was good, and we were the only ones there. Finding the hotel from a GPS was a bit tricky. Thank goodness for friendly people who guided us to where we needed to go.

Lovely location, prompt service, beautiful sea views (with roofs along the way) from some of the rooms.
(Only reason I have stated Spa as Average is that the person managing it was not available and thus we could not use it)

We were on our honeymoon and found the staff exceptionally friendly, like a family run hotel without being intrusive. We were given a choice of two rooms when we arrived. The restaurant is gorgeous and affords a stunning balcony of the amphitheatre to listen to the music during the summer. The pool area is nicely laid out and the location of the hotel is absolutely perfect, not right on the square but just a very short walk away. Ravello is a beautiful escape. I can't wait to go back!

The star rating in Italy is different to what I'm familiar with. This is not Hotel Ruffolo's fault. But a four star is not cheap. It's more likely based on the location and service, than spacious rooms. You get used to this and we appreciated the good qualities of the hotel. Again the breakfast is not what I would expect from a four star elsewhere. It was self service and items were replenished but not constantly. There was some scrambled egg and sausages as well as pastries, ham, cheese etc. But only one coffee dispenser and a toaster which took 2 slices at a time so you had to queue sometimes for your breakfast.

However overall we absolutely loved this hotel and Ravello. It is a peaceful, relaxed and friendly place. The rooms were cleaned daily and were spotless. I will most definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: We were advised that there was going to be a wedding one evening but it would finish early. However...

Good hotel. the rooms are simple but large and have all you may need. The view on the rufolo villa were brilliant. Try to ask a room with a balcony. Most rooms have a small balcony where you cna fit two chairs, then if you upgrade you get the rooms on the 3rd floor with large balconies. Unfortunately, we got on this side the only room it seems that had no balcony at all (room 105). Still, the view was lovely.

The staff was very frienly without being overwhelming. Very hepful.

The breakfast offered various options. Not the best breakfast ever but enough to find something you are ahppy with. The restaurant on top has a fantastic terrace and beautiful view. the food was also good and good value.

It is located right in the centre of ravello, which is brilliant. very calm.
We had rented a car, which turned out to be this super long car and were worried with the access but even if th small road to access the hotel is a bit tricky it is totally doable. The staff will help you turn it around and park it in their front car park.

Pool was nice.
