When we decided to use Ravello as our base town for visiting the Amalfi Coast, we spent some time researching hotels, and Parsifal got our vote. We were not disappointed. We had booked a suite with an ocean view, which we received. The room was recently renovated, spotlessly clean, tastefully decorated with many modern amenities.
While Parsifal would not be considered a "luxury" hotel, it's charm, beauty, cleanliness, staff, and attention to detail make it an absolute delight. Breakfast and one meal are typically included in the price, and the dinners "al fresco" on the terrace overlooking the bay make for a truly romantic evening. The food is fresh and well prepared, and we basically ate at the hotel each evening to enjoy the view at candlelight. Leonardo, Raffaele, and Antonio manage the place, and are exemplary in their being accommodating, helpful, and pleasant to deal with. They're all fluent in Italian, English, and probably a few more languages, and a pleasure to talk to.
Parsifal is a gem of an hotel in a gem of a town. These are places that take your breath away and that have given us priceless memories. If you want to share in the beauty and the romance of Ravello, make Parsifal your home.
