Hotel Doria
Ranked #14 of 29 Hotels in Amalfi
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 31, 2014

In Summer the hoards flock to the towns along the Amalfi Coast. and deservedly so. This is a stunning part of Italy, and a world renowned destination. If the crowds are too much in the town, then staying a few kilometres out is the answer, and this hotel is a gem set high on the cliffs overlooking the fabulous coastline.

Rooms are spacious, and as with most medium range accommodation in this region, not over furnished. After all, if you stay in your hotel room all day, then you have come to the wrong place.

Some rooms have better views than others so it is worth checking in advance. And the view is a killer. The rooftop balcony is a great spot to just chill out and stare over the coast.

The hotel runs a regular free shuttle down to the township, but the buses run regularly and stop right outside the door. The local bus is probably more fun than the hotels mini bus.

Off the lobby the hotel dining room provides a great breakfast buffet with the usual selection. Very friendly and attentive staff.

If the crowds are not your preferred company, then Doria is a wonderful alternative to staying down in the township.

Room Tip: Check with staff that you have a view. It is worth staying in Doria for the view alone.

The hotel is situated high above the coast with a reasonably long drive to the town of Amalfi. We booked for 1 night on short notice and were given a room that should not have been a hotel room. Small, 1 window facing a rock at 1,5 meter distance, tv not working, tiny shower that makes entry a challenge for an adult and best of all an ineffective air con that cannot be regulated in the room. We asked for help but didn't get any feedback. At midnight at 30 degrees Celsius we considered sleeping in the car. The breakfast might be acceptable at a German motorway motel.

The hotel is located a 10 min drive from Amalfi. The rooms are okay and clean. The staff was friendly and helpful. They over a parking space (very important if you stay on the Amalfi coast). The best is the brilliant view from the room and the balcony. Outstandig.
The hotel overs a shuttle to Amalfi and back several times a day.

If there wasn't the free shuttle, we would'nt have stayed there. The hotel is far away from Amalfi (about 15 minutes by car) and the shuttle is not working all day. The room had a lovely balcony overlooking the sea, it was clean and yet full of ants everywhere! Breakfast was ok. The staff not very welcoming. A bit overpriced.

We stayed only one night, but we were given the best room (room 7): not only did it have a seaview, but it had a huge terrace. The room seemed quite new, in fact the hotel has been refurbished in 2008, and it was clean.
Very friendly staff, breakfast was more than satisfying. The hotel is not close to the center of Amalfi, but the hotel provides a free shuttle service every hour, and it only takes about 5 minutes to get to Amalfi. The last shuttle leaves Amalfi at 22:40. There's also a free street parking at about 10 meters from the hotel (which is quite impossible to find around the coast). So far, this has been the best hotel where we have slept, and only for € 70. Totally recomended!!

Although not in the centre of Amalfi, the hotel had a complimentary shuttle service which took/fetched from the city centre. As we were two couples, we shared a quad room which was spacious. It also had its own balcony with patio furniture, overlooking the sea. The breakfast was a delicious buffet. The hotel staff were also very friendly and helpful.

I found the hotel to be a great value considering that it's near the Amalfi town. It has a free shuttle, free wi-fi, free break fast, free parking. You'll need to make reservations for the shuttle as it fills up. With a little planning, you can have the Amalfi town experience without a car.

Staff was attentive and courteous. I would stay there again if I had to do over.
