“Stunning views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2012

Stayed here last year for a wedding as didn't want to pay the extortionate prices for hotels in Ravello centre... best decision we made! The location is simply stunning, perched on the hillside and nestled in between lemon trees - nothing better than waking up in the morning and having fresh coffee, lemon juice (of course) and views of the Amalfi coast.

Rooms are not exactly luxurious but perfectly clean and good size. Kitchen is a massive bonus, allowing you to cook a few basic meals if you don't want to pay restaurant prices every night.

The steps will be an issue if you are not fit. We are a young, fairly active couple and they didn't get any easier over the week we spent there... still, good exercise and means you have no guilt ordering that refreshing beer in the piazza.

For EUR 70 per night, this place is an absolute bargain.

We stayed here for a friends wedding. Don't believe the wedding planners- there is lots of good value well located accommodation in Ravello.
Gianni picked us up from the bus station and dropped us back. We had a perfectly clean if basic room, with a small kitchenette, stocked with more food then we could eat. We had a lovely balcony with a beautiful view over the coast.
It was about a ten minte walk up soem steps to the centre. Not too strenuous at all if you are half way mobile.
A good bargain option.

There seems to a confusion between two "Limoni" B&Bs in Ravello, so I just wanted to put in my two cents. We went to this one, "Giardino dei Limoni" though I think i meant to book the other simly "B&B I Limoni" which is down the next alley over. We arrived at GIARDINO dei Limoni and were shown to our room, and all I can say is that it smell awful and was a depressing room. It smelled like cigarettes and rotten clams and mildew, and was just all tile like a dormitory. Fortunately we had happened upon B&B Limoni in getting lost getting there, and we switched there and it was infinitely better (though of course it cost more). But B&B Limoni was clean, the rooms great, the views awesome, the hosts very nice and hospitable, and it's in groves of a working lemon farm so deserves the Limoni name. I guess if you are trying to save a buck and your nose is plugged up and don't mind a sterile thoughtless atmosphere, then this isn't a bad place "to crash". But if you are on vacation, then treat yourself better, or you may as well just stay home.

We cannot say that the hostess of the dei Limoni was anything but kind and hospitable but dragging heavy suitcases up and down the terrible 50 steps was a hellish start to the stay. Accomodation was basic up okayeven if the rooms did have a slight trace of damp. Walking to Ravello centre was up uncompromising hills - very disappointing considering the photos we had seen before booking. Certainly not worth 100 euros a night - maybe 40.

We were in Italy for a family wedding. With prices beyond our budget, it was looking unlikely that we could make the nuptials in Ravello until we found Giardino dei Limone.

And after a terrible hotel experience in Rome, a white knuckle taxi ride, a journey from hell on public transport only just running thanks to a 9am - 5pm strike (and in Salerno, 9am to whenever we feel like it) our experience at this fantastic B&B restored our faith in humanity.

We tumbled out of the taxi past midnight on the evening of our arrival, at the top of 120 steps with two car sick children, two sulky teenagers, rucksacked and rumpled from seven hours travelling, and fell straight into the arms of the owner who had waited up for us, carried our bags down and escorted us to our beds.

In the morning, the view that greeted us washed away all the trauma of the day before. Even my normally very vocal five year old was lost for words at the sight of the sea and the mountains! That day, he and his sister played in the shaded gardens while we unwound further.

The wedding was in Ravello - which is a good old climb away. We managed it okay, but in the heat of the sun and our posh frocks, we arrived in the square a little worse for wear. Downhill with lots of Prosseco inside us at 3am was much easier - even carrying a sleeping bridesmaid! The steps shouldn't be a problem for anyone with a regular level of fitness, but take your time and take some water.

Overall, this B&B is a real find. The rooms are simple but comfortable, with great beds and a put up bed for kids at no extra cost. There is a washing machine, satellite television, kitchen and free wifi. We'll definately go again.

We stayed just one night at Giardino dei Limoni when the owner found us accommodation when we were lost on the hillside late in th evening unable to find the b and b we had booked i.e. "I Limoni". We had a comfortable night's stay here in a well equipped appartment which had a wonderful view. There are certainly a number of steps down to Giardino dei Limoni but nothing compared with those leading down to "I Limoni" where we spent the next three nights. Do not get confused between the two properties -the favourable comments on Trip Advisor relate to Giardino dei Limoni.

What else can I say? A great, great place with all pluses. Barring the stpes of which you may have already read. To get from the street level to my room, 159 steps ot be precise. But all was offset by the host and the views. having breakfast ofr a glass of wine overlooking the Gulf of Salerno is unforgettable. All pictures at the website are true.
