“Beyond our expectations”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2010

We would recommend Hotel Rufolo & Ravello as the best place we stayed at in Italy.
The service, staff & location are fabulous. Can't wait to go back & will stay longer.

We discovered this hotel when visiting Ravello and ensured somehow that we would somehow escape from the Onde Verde in Praiano (appalling food and service)and stay here for 2 nights. It was a joy to find staff so helpful and food so delicious. Our room (404) had a part sea view and part garden and was very quiet. It was comfortable and spacious and clean: the bathroom was adequate. We were surrounded by people on their second and third visits and we will return as soon as we can. Don't expect luxury bedrooms but everything else is fantastic: views to die for, good small swimming pool, excellent buffet breakfast, and staff bending over backwards to be charming and helpful. What a find!

We stayed in the Rufolo for three nights this month, ostensibly to attend the wedding of friends (also held at the Rufolo).
I would definitely return to stay here - the staff were first class, and although it was not cheap the rooms were nice, clean and spacious. The room we stayed in was not what you would call luxurious, and we have paid the same money for real luxury elsewhere on our travels...but when you see the view, and experience the location and friendliness of the Rufolo (as well as remembering this is peak season on the amalfi) we were not in any position to complain at all.
I loved the continental style breakfast too - bread, cheese and eggs - yummy!
Hotel Rufolo gets our thumbs up - do go and stay there if you are visiting Ravello. And have dinner in Rossellini's up at the Palazzo Sasso using the money you saved by not staying at the latter but by staying at Rufolo!!

Lovely Hotel. Nicest for its location and also the staff. My family and friends all enjoyed it. Pool is great. Just new when we arrived. Breakfast on the terrace. Rooms are very clean. Stayed in Maori the year before but doesn't even compare to this!

Spent two nights at the hotel rufolo to attend
A wedding. The town is well worth visiting if
on the Amalfi coast. The hotel itself was
average and one of the more reasonable for
Ravello. At 300 euro a night it was overpriced
but I guess that is the price you pay for
being in a location such as Ravello.

Don't waste your money here!! We stayed in a junior suite rm. 112, paid $560 USD. This hotel was very, very outdated. The wall behind the bed had a deep crack in it, The bathroom, while large-had a PLASTIC PIPE for a showerhead and there was crud on the ceiling!! The bed was very hard (good if you like that-we didn't). The balcony was only wide enough for one chair-SIDEWAYS!!!! So if you're looking for some sort of luxury, look elsewhere. The only redeeming aspect was the very friendly and helpful staff. The only redeeming aspect. Oh, and they don't overcharge for phonecalls! You can get the same gorgeous views from the bus stop which is about 50 ft. away. For the kind of money they charge, I would recommend to stay somewhere else!
