Good hotel for the money. Location was close to town, so easy walk in/out from the main sq and the port. Nice views of the harbor. Rooms nicely furnished and reasonable size. Staff very helpful and pleasant, and accomodating. Breakfast was fine. Only negative was noise level on street - hotel faces main street so lots of people going by... More

We stayed here twice, the 1st time by chance, after arriving in Amalfi and wanting to explore, it was September and we got a lovely room with terrace. Loved it so much we came back the next year for 1 week and had a superior room looking over sea and cannot fault it. We would love to stay there again... More

We stayed in this hotel on a package deal with Topflight for 1 week. This is a lovely hotel. The rooms are a touch on the small side but comfortable and very clean (as is the entire hotel). The staff were all lovely and very helpful. Definitely try the cocktails at the bar, only €3 each and delicious. We used... More

We stayed here for a week on a package tour. We stayed in one of the back rooms with a view of the cliff face, about two metres away. At first we were disappointed. The shower was poor, flooding the bathroom floor every time we used it and the menu always seemed to include veal as one of its main... More

This is a great hotel with a wonderful staff -- the best from our entire 12 day trip in Italy. The rooms are wonderful with amazing views that you can see from your room balcony. The location is perfect as it is close to downtown but a block away to avoid most of the noise at night. The breakfast offered... More

We had a room with lateral balcony, which turned out to be perfect for the night of fireworks. At first I worried about road noise because it lies between the promenade and the main road at a gradient at the back. But it turned out to be of no problem at all. Ceramic tiles were used liberally, but the wood... More
