“Nice B&B, good positioned for mulitple trips around Amalfi”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2011

We have been staying here for three nights (intended to stay for only one or two nights, but the location is a perfect place for multiple trips). It is a beautifull bed&breakfast. Just away from touristic Amalfi. View is perfect and rooms are very clean. We enjoyed the liveliness on the piazza where mainly locals hang around. We have also eaten in two restaurants in Atrani and the food was good.
We were backpacking so no experience with the car. We have made trips to Amalfi, Ravello, Maiory and did some hiking in the area. Service was good and friendly. Breakfast was simple but compared to other bed and breakfasts (we have seen three of them this week in Amalfi coast) the most complete.

I stayed at this wonderful private & secluded hotel for 4 nights at the end of March. It was recommended in Rick Steves Italty guidebook, and I felt so lucky to have discovered it. The location is amazing on the torrent of water that comes down from the mountain. As a solo traveler I felt very safe, and was happy to be in a quiet and nature inspired area. The location is perfect - close to Amalfi if you want to see the signts there (the church, paper museum, ceramic shops, bars, cafes, even beauty salons). Great bus connections to the Greek ruins at Paestum or other small villages in the area. The hike up to Ravello along the Via Dragone path is wonderful. The breakfast is simple & adequate. I enjoyed wandering over to Amalfi or up to Ravello for a cappuchino or cocktail, as I browsed the ceramic shops, churches, museums, villas & gardens. It was always so peaceful to come back to this wonderful hotel. The one thing I would recommend is to bring warm slippers or socks because the beautiful tile floors are cold.

Room Tip: Check out "Rick Steves Italy" guidebook.

First visit to Atrani & L'Argine Fiorito. Beautiful waterfall next to the B&B. Garden and patio area of hotel lovely and room spacious. All very clean. The breakfast was very good, but cappucino not available. Owner and sister both excellent for service. Do not understand why others have complained about the sister as she was so helpful on our check-in. She helped with our luggage and gave suggestion for restaurants both in Atrani and Amalfi (short walk from Atrani). Owner is really nice guy and out of his way to provide excellent service. Parking is a problem in the entire Amalfi area, but hotel made arrangements for our car that worked very well. A car in this area is not needed with the bus service anyhow. Atrani is a great location and it was a relief to come back to our B&B after the crowds in Amalfi, Positano and Ravello. We took bus up to Ravello and hiked down to Atrani. Path is easy to find from Villa Cimbrone & a great way to experience the atmosphere of the region. Avoid if you have knee problems, though. Enjoyed watching families in the piazza in Atrani. Totally different scene from Amalfi. Highly recommend this B&B and would re-book without hesitation.

We've just returned from a wonderful stay at L'argine Fiorito. Alfonso, the manager, is very friendly and sweet, and him and his (sister?) offered us any information when we asked for it, from bus times to taxi bookings and treks to take, and gave us beach towels and helped us cover our suitcase when it was raining! They do take your key whenever you leave but they are at the reception to let you in all hours.

I loved the waterfall and the derelict building outside our balcony (room Rosa) but the waterfall was very loud! As such we had to keep the doors shut and wake up in the dark every morning, but it wasn't a problem.

Breakfast was ok - we weren't offered anything other than what was laid out, so I don't know if there is anything else, but there was yoghurts, cornflakes, cakes and pastries. Nothing special, but decent fuel for the morning.

The room was nice and the hotel was only a short walk to Amalfi, which has a lot more atmosphere than Atrani, which is mainly a hangout for locals - an interesting insight into their lives though and very different to the tourist-filled Amalfi, which was good! The beach loses sunlight early and has grey sand, but Amalfi beach has a good atmosphere (but very painful pebbles!). The restaurants we went to weren't up to much, but we had lovely meals in Villa Maria in Ravello (scenic walk up lots of steps) and in Sorrento, which is an hour and a half away by bus.

Some tips:

Capri is expensive even beyond what we expected and really not very exciting. We also got fleeced out of lots of money there for a boat trip. And The Blue Grotto is amazingly overrated and a massive disappointment. You pay 11.50 Euro each to get in a row boat and be rowed in and out again in two minutes and there's nothing more to it than what you see in the pictures. Then they demand tips and complain no matter how much you give them. Don't bother!

If you can, arrive in Naples during the day. Otherwise it'll cost you 130 Euro to get a taxi to Amalfi. If you arrive in the day you can get a train to Sorrento or Salerno then a SITA bus to Amalfi (from Salerno it is shorter but Sorrento has a lot more going on). Don't hire a car - those roads are scary!!!

In Naples, leave your baggage at the station (by platform 5) and go to Pizzeria Da Michele (Mee-Kel) - famous for having the best pizza in Naples and not to be missed. Just 10 min walk from the station. Delish!

A wonderful (and long) walk: From Amalfi head up to the Paper Mill Museum and turn right up some steps. Follow them past derelict buildings and other old paper mills on and on up and up - persevere because it's a stunning walk with a massive waterfall at the end, well worth it.

We stayed at this small hotel for 3 nights this spring. The room was large, modern and immaculate, with a balcony overlooking a beautiful courtyard garden. Next to the hotel was the rushing water of an old mill race (the property used to be a 17th century paper mil). The sound of the rushing water and the wonderful scents from the garden made us feel we were a million miles from the tourists in Amalfi. In many ways the countryside around the hotel seemed more like the German alps than the Amalfi coast (until you walk a few steps and reach the Mediterranean sea). From our balcony we could see the entire village and the sea. Atrani is 600 meters from Amalfi, connected by a tunnel with a protected pedestrian sidewalk. The bus stop is down by the shore – the bus stops here 5 minutes after Amalfi. We found Atrani a perfect place to use as our headquarter while visiting the Amalfi Coast. Our host, Alfonso, was kind and courteous, even offering us the use of two of his umbrellas when we ventured out one rainy evening. We will definitely return to this lovely hotel.

This place was a real surprise, situated at the end of Atrani where the dragon valley starts (where you can make a nice climb (1 hour walk) to the beautiful town Ravello). If you like the sound of a flowing river, Italian atmosphere, friendly people, and basic facilities. This is your place. The location is the best!
