First of all, note to other reviewers: Amalfi is on the Tyrrhenian Sea, not the Adriatic Sea.
Secondly, I have to say this was probably the most memorable place we stayed at during our 3+ weeks in Italy. The room was spacious and had a definite old-fashioned feel--some people might say unappealingly shabby but to me, the down-at-heel atmosphere had a peaceful, homey appeal. After having spent 4 days in a dank, dark room in Praia a Mare, I was happy to be in a sunlit, breezy yet warm, place. Our room overlooked the piazza which also serves as a bus terminal. Ordinarily this would have been a turn-off but really it didn't bother me. The buses stop running before 11 pm and then there's virtually no traffic until around 6 am. The shutters did a good job of blocking out noise and light.
The guy who was at the front desk 90% of the time (who I think is the owner) bent over backwards to be a good innkeeper: While we were there, he was in the process of fixing the WiFi so that it will be available in all the rooms and although it didn't happen while I was there, I appreciate the effort. We had to leave before breakfast on our last day and he made an effort to set up the coffee machine so we could have some before we hit the road.
As another reviewer has noted, the shower is crazy. The first and last time I used it, I managed to soak the entire bathroom.
