We stayed three nights at the Residenza Panza. When emailing we were told someone would meet us at the bus stop, however, nobody showed up and we had to find the B&B on our own. The B&B was closed on our arrival, but luckily the owner showed up shortly afterwards. It's not a long walk from the Bus stop and Ferries, but it can be confusing to find if you have never been to Amalfi. The room was very clean, and fairly modern and even had a TV (not something we used, but may be a selling point for others). The bathroom was clean well equipped with a shower stall. The air conditioning was not working when we stayed there. Even though it wasn't overly warm in Amalfi, the rooms did get very hot and stuffy. Other than the A/C, the room was excellent and we had no complaints.
The breakfasts were okay, very minimal though. Mostly breads, jams, nutella, yogurt, milk, and croissants, none of which was spectacular. The owner speaks very little english, so when he greeted us we had difficulty communicating. He did give us a good restaurant recommendation which included a discount. The receptionist Eva speaks more English and is somewhat helpful.
The location is close to the central part of Amalfi and everything is within walking distance. Be warned its 67 steps up to the main entrance, but they do offer baggage assistance for those who need it.
Overall, this was a very good B&B but it falls short on the details and little extras. If you are looking for a reasonably priced clean rooms and not much else, then this would be a great place to stay.
