We stayed for a week in the attic room. It was comfortable and roomy. The bathroom was new and everything was clean.
We were made to feel very welcome and looked after by the team at Villa Lara, Thanks to Nello, Luco and Alfonzo for making our stay so special.
We enjoyed the quietness of the Villa. It was only a 5 minute walk downhill to the cafes shops and transport services to the other villages on the Amalfi Coast.
As other guests have mentioned the terrace is a beautiful spot to sit and have your breakfast, which by the way was an excellant spread. Always plenty to eat and bottomless cups of coffee/Tea.
Thanks Guys!

Room Tip: The attic room has a dormer window with fantastic views of the town and sea.

We loved this hotel in Amalfi, the staff was knowledgeable and friendly. The rooms were spacious. We stayed two nights, and really after the frightening road to Amalfi, didn't want to leave this peaceful beautiful place. It's a walk uphill to get there and a few stairs to the elevator and to the hotel itself from the elevator, but worth the steps. Amalfi was crawling with tourists from the cruise ships, 3 in two days that were in the bay. But at the Villa everything was cool and serene. I would stay here again, and couldn't say enough nice things about it. The scenery from the terrace is pretty spectacular. And a bargain at the price. The only downside to the whole experience was the powdered juice at breakfast Stick with tea or coffee.

Room Tip: We had a standard room in the attic, but it was cool and although it only had a skylight for a window, you could stand on the bed and look at the village in the back, with the 500 stairs.

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.

Room Tip: Superior. Attic superior if you want (tiny) bath tub. But attic may have lower ceiling in some parts. Not for extra tall people :)

Villa Lara is an amazing B&B with one of the most dramatic locations in Amalfi. We loved everything about Villa Lara - the location perched above the town with wonderful views yet close enough to the shops, restaurants and town center, the friendly and warm staff,( with a special nod to our host, Nello) , the delicious breakfasts and stocked in-room refrigerators. Rooms are clean and beds comfortable. We will be back. Thank you, Villa Lara.

we stayed two nights in Villa Lara- one in the superior room and the second in the junior suite and they both were so great. the view from this place is fenomenal, the service is kind and friendly, and the rooms are very comfortable.
the breakfast is very simple but all in all this place is highly recommended. Don't miss the lemon cake...
