We booked for three nights for the superior attic room (as we saw there was the bathtub for after that long walk). The first night we were transferred to a neighbouring hotel (Analara) with the same style. The second night we weren't given the attic but--like the first night--we were too tired and just went to bed. We curiously asked the next day and according to Melo, we've been upgraded and he sent a bottle of wine to make up for the mishap. He offered the attic room but we couldn't be bothered to move again. Plus the rooms are all comfortable and nice.
The best part about this hotel is that the view you see from the terrace where the sunshine greets you in the morning while you're sipping your coffee and looking over the beautiful ocean. This hotel is not just one of the highest located but also has an unobstructed view to the see.
Thanks to their effort of providing a lift, we'd otherwise have to take the many staircases after a long day of walking. I took the staircase down in the morning for a good exercise and enjoying the scenery.
We could see a beautiful valley from our room window and we only see beautiful scenery from this place in general. The area is quiet.
I read some reviews about how difficult coming in with the car. Well we were on 2-week road trip in Italy and the ZTL could be an intimidating affair in city centres in Italy. Just stay calm and drive through all those pedestrians and small alley, it adds to the excitement in this country. I wasn't calm at all at the beginning but decided to let my friend drive. Luca guided us to get to the hotel as the hotel sign was not very clear and our GPS screwed up. Then he called the garage to vallet park our car (thank you!). And then Alfonso (?) helped my friend with her luggage although it was fine with the elevator, that was really nice gesture and we appreciated it.
We will stay here again next time we are in Amalfi.
