Let me start by clearing up all the nonsense bad reviews about this place. Scalinatella is a really great place to stay.
First off, it's actually located in Atrani (which is a 5 minute walk from Amalfi) so it's away from the insane tourists, but is still so beautiful!
The front desk was a little tricky to find, but manageable. The owners are so nice! Gabriele was an absolute doll! He got us set up real quick and took us to the location of our room, which was down the street in a separate building. Gabriele was so sweet; he ran from our building town to his front desk (no easy task with all the stairs) three times to get us everything we needed. He was very accommodating.
Also, I read bad reviews about how the place makes you feel dirty and diseased and how the walls don't reach the ceiling. I think we must have stayed in a new building because the rooms were flawless. They were extremely clean and spacious. It offered fantastic views of the cliffs.
The place also provides laundry services and towels. The bathroom was a little irritating though because it would flood...but nothing too crazy.
Overall, very nice stay. Oh also, make sure you go to the cafe in the main square of Atrani, and see Luigi (the owner)...he's like the Fabio of Atrani.
