“A perfect alternative to mediocre Italian hotel accommodation”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2009

So many hotels in Italy are old fashioned and over-priced. This charming B&B is a wonderful alternative. The rooms are nicely decorated with clever use of space and the owners are very helpful. Atrani itself is beautiful location and a stone's throw from Amalfi (from where you can easily explore the rest of the coastline).

The breakfast is a little stingy and unvaried, and be prepared to carry your luggage up countless flights of stairs to reach the place. Other than that we would highly recommend Roomswithview as a charming alternative to the tourist rat race in this part of the world.

We are truly glad you enjoyed your staying, thank you for your review. We've been doing our best to provide top quality and cost effective accommodation on the Amalfi coast, and we will continue to do so.
All we'd like to add regarding our breakfast is that customers refer to it as adequate or abundant, and that Italian regulations don't allow B&Bs to cook, so we cannot provide food such as eggs and bacon, sausages, and such.
Regarding the steps: there are 90 steps from the coastal road to our B&B, as stated on our website. it's 90 steps and we say it clearly, they're not countless. Porter for luggage is usually available for 5 euro per piece. Moreover Amalfi coast towns are historic sites and go uphill, so stairs are almost everywhere.

We really enjoyed this small b&b in Atrani, and the Amalficoast was a definite highlight of our trip. The rooms were really nice and clean, and the coffee and fresh fruit at breakfast was really good. It took a little longer than we expected to arrive from Rome (about 3-4 hours) and the bus ride was definitly something to remember! Once we arrived it was great and definitly worth it though. All the Italian classics sun, wine, and pasta. We even got to hear some live music one day while we were eating at a restaurant in Atrani called Le Arcate. The week totally flew by, and we definitly hope to return to Rooms With A View, and Atrani.

I booked here because we were interested in staying in a smaller town than Amalfi or Positano, wanted a terrace with a view and enjoy the personal service at small b&bs. We were not disappointed. The rooms are small but very bright and clean with private baths and AC and the personal touches that come with an owner occupied facility. The terrace was one of the highest in Atrani, with an outstanding view of the water and the valley; we enjoyed breakfast there and also brought our lunches to the terrace as well as enjoying it the evening. The view shown from their website it exactly the view we got. Outstanding!! We were given good advice regarding restaurants, the short walk to Amalfi, the longer but beautiful hike to Ravello, ATMs, and the local beaches.

Even better than the view and the cool, comfortable room were the owners. When we ran into a pretty big problem they were not only supremely helpful, but generous as well. I would stay with Francis and Bruno again in a heartbeat!!

As for previous reviewers concerns with the phone and finding the b&b, I had the same difficulty with calling, but it is the fault of cell phone service, not the wrong number. Using the pay phone with actual land lines works much better. Even with this it was easy to find, and a few minutes of walking up the stairs from the church led me to their door without any problems.

My 21 year old daughter and I just came back after a whirlwind trip all over Italy. Our best three nights in the country were at this B&B!! We had keys to come and go as we pleased, a gorgeous view from our room, and the wonderful terrace where we were served breakfast and could enjoy a bottle of wine in the evenings!! Frances was so sweet and brought up a beautiful breakfast and also a second pot of coffee for us each morning upon request!! She met us at the bus stop to help us get to the B&B. She carried my bag, which was too heavy as we were at the end of our trip! Then Bruno carried my bag up to the room, which was a lifesaver!! He also carried our bags down to the street on the morning of our departure. The room was decorated with local tiles, the cute aqua colored donkey and beautiful plants. Sun chairs and umbrella were available on the terrace as well as an outdoor shower! Frances gave us great recommendations for dinner at the restaurant on the beach. Best meals in all of Italy!! The Bar Ricacca down on the Umberto Piazza kept a tab going for the three days we were there and had free internet and toilet access with purchase! I thought this was a once in a lifetime trip with my daughter, however, I told my husband that we WILL go back together! And we WILL stay at this B&B with Frances and Bruno!!

This bed and breakfast was a great choice. It was away from the daytime crowds in Amalfi, but it was within easy walking distance, only about 10 min. The room was good and clean, and the airconditioning works well. Another bonus was the blinds when they were closed blocked out all the light. Great for days when we just wanted to sleep in. The beach "Castilione" right by the bed and breakfast was nice too, and so was the main beach of Atrani. We rented sun beds and umbrella for a reasonable rate, especially since we made a deal with the guys on the beach because we were staying for a week. Renting a scooter is a good idea too if you want to get to some of the less known places on the Amalficoast, we recommend checking out a place called "la Praia" near Praiano, the owners of the b&b recommended it to us, its definitely worth checking out.

We're staying in this B&B and we agree with forthreflections review. The town is great, much less touristy than Amalfi, and the B&B has a great view, the rooms are nice and clean, each with its own bathroom, the terrace is real nice too. The owners are kind, helpful, and speak very good English. All in all a wonderful experience.

My wife and I stayed with for a week in October 2007. We had an excellent stay at Rooms with view and would defiantly recommend tit as a relaxing place to stay.

We really miss Atrani and hope to visit again soon.
