“Great choice on Amalfi Coast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013

We stayed at Maison Raphael for three nights in late May and were delighted with our choice. Not only is Minori a great base to explore the Amalfi Coast, the (quieter) town of Minori itself is pleasant to come back to after day trips to busy (and touristy) Amalfi, Positano or Capri. And staying at Maison Raphael made it all the more enjoyable. The room was impeccably clean and the owner Antonio, his son Raphael and his employee who looked after breakfast were all extremely friendly and helpful with recommendations on how to get around and what to see. (We first thought we would rent a car to visit the coast but in the end were happy to have relied instead on the convenient bus service - Maison Raphael is located just a few steps from the bus stop.) We would certainly stay here again and highly recommend it.

I would really recommend this place to stay - the owners cannot do enough to help you. Antonio and his son speak very good English and are full of recommendations. There are a number of steps to get to the reception but there was always someone on hand to help our friend who had just had an operation on her knee. The rooms are fairly simple but clean and have everything you need. Ours had a fairly large balcony with views over Minori. There was a mix of people staying in the hotel - several older couples, mums and daughters and we were a group of 6 friends (late twenties / early thirties). Everybody comes together for breakfast on the terrace in the morning and in our case, we were grateful for the flexibility with breakfast timings! Even when some people came downstairs half an hour after the end of breakfast, they were still served with a smile! I would definitely go back and highly recommend this place to anybody looking for a small, friendly place to stay.

This B&B has a fabulous location with great balcony views and a terrace overlooking the village. Close to bus stop and taxi service. Great easy walking to beach, shops and restaurants. The village is beautiful with less tourists. Antonio, the inn keeper is extremely friendly and helpful. For a moderate priced accommodations it is fabulous!

Seemingly hanging on the cliff, overlooking and beside the main road of Minora, and strategically located only a stone throw from the main town, the place is easy enough to find. You may spot the owner waving welcome at you from the breakfast patio once he spotted your arrival. Pleasant little residence of 10 rooms or so, located on 2 floors, a bit of stairway climb to the casa, and not something one would complain about. The ultra-friendly owner will help with all the informations around the area, from interesting sights to the best ristorante. Fairly well-equipped room of most neccesities, breakfast included, and the front counter is staffed 24 hours. If you happen to bring a car, you can avail of the carpark across for 15e daily.

We took the high speed train from rome to naples, and then took the line to Sorrento which passes Pompeii. we jumped a bus in Sorrento and were lucky to get the front seats, and went to
Amalfi. we then took the bus up to Ravello and took in the vistas and gardens. Then we hiked the trail down to Minori and found Hotel Maison Raphael. The B and B was very clean and service was top notch. We had a great time in Minori, so pretty with the rustic coast line and the lemon groves, Kind, Warm hearted people. We have lifetime grand memories of this trip and Maison Raphael is a major part of the picture.
Thanks Antonio, so glad we stopped by your hotel! Five Stars for the exceptional Value.

I recently spent six nights at the charming Maison Rafael which I enjoyed very much. Antonio is a super nice host, helpful, informative, and he went out of his way to insure that I enjoyed my stay in Minori. The room was spacious, clean, and comfortable, and nice to return to after a long day of being on the go. The hotel is on a busy road, but actually in the evening the traffic slows down and noise was not an issue at all. I would definitely return. Thank you Antonio and Gaetano also!
