We have just returned from 13 nights stay in the Residence Hotel. The hotel is located opposite the beach, but also has the advantage of being central to all the restuarants and shops and you really do feel the buzz of Amalfi. We stayed in room 21 with great sea views and a small balcony. The room was spotlessly clean and each night the towels were folded and the bed turned down (not essential but a really nice touch) and the air conditioning was great. The staff were fantatsic very friendly, courteous and really couldn't enough to help from the breakfast Cappuccino to the final buonasera of the day. They even arranged for an early breakfast on our day of departure. The breakfast was good fresh fruit, cereal and srambled eggs etc ( Maybe after 13 nights could have done with a little variation) and the setting of the breakfast terrace overlooking the beach was perfect. Overall both the hotel and Amalfi were fantatsic. We had intended to do more trips, but in the end due to the idyllic setting only managed Positano, Capri and Ravello, all worth a visit. We would definitely recommend this hotel and would just like to say: Grazie per una vacanza fantastica. Ci ritorneremo.

Room Tip: Definitely pick a sea view room. We stayed on the second floor, but the first floor rooms although...

My girlfriend and I stayed here from 8/6/2013 to 18/6/2013 and we both agreed that our stay here was excellent. Definitely up there with some of the best places that we've ever stayed in. The hotel is situated right on the coast road that runs down the Amalfi coast and is in the centre of the town of Amalfi itself. Our room was front facing and was on the first floor. The view from the balcony is perfect, looking over the road and the beach out onto the harbour. This hotel has no pool but being over the road from the beach it isnt a problem because the water is so clean and the area designated for swimming is huge. The hotel even provides beach towels for free. The breakfast is extensive offering the continental option or simple cereals. The hotel also has a turn down service in the evening which is an additional touch of class. The rooms are spacious and are well serviced too! Initially we thought that the rooms would be a little loud due to the road but the doors to the balcony are well insulated so its really not an issue.

Room Tip: Room 3 was a standard room but very nice with a great view of the harbour.

Upon arriving by ferry to Amalfi, we walked 5 minutes to the hotel. It is located across the street of the bay. We arrived at the desk and was told that our rooms were not ready but they would make sure they would get us in as soon as possible. They took our luggage and said they would put them in our rooms when they were ready. We walked around Amalfi for about an hour and went back to the hotel. We were happy that our rooms were ready.
We really enjoyed the rooms, they were very clean and the beds were comfy. We stayed 2 nights and the employees at the desk were wonderful giving us lots of info on the town. One person that stands out is Vittorio, he always had a smile for us. He was always pleasant when we came back from our tours. He made us feel very special.

just returned from a 4 night stay and can't say enough about this gem of a hotel. Great location, right on the town square, smack bang in the middle of everything, spotlessly clean, and the friendliest of staff, particularly the waiter who made me the nicest coffee every morning, the reception clerk was also very accommodating when I asked to be moved to a ocean facing room, thank you, I would recommend this hotel highly to anyone looking for a perfect hotel while in Amalfi, Thank you all.

My husband and I just returned from a 12 day trip to Italy, and spent 2 nights at the Residence Hotel. Upon checking in, we were immediately impressed with the helpfulness and efficiency of the staff. They were warm and welcoming, giving us directions to a nearby parking garage, helping us bring our bags to our room, and offering us a voucher for a free drink at the the hotel bar. In the heart of Amalfi, with views overlooking the beach and the beautiful sea, we loved the hotel's location. We were able to easily walk everywhere in town. In our opinion, Amalfi was slightly quieter than Positano (where we spent an afternoon) and not quite as upscale, but just as charming. At the hotel, we had a beach-front room, and the view from our balcony was jaw-dropping. Although in the room during the afternoon the hustle and bustle from the street below was slightly noisy, we had no noise problems at night when we were ready for bed. Included in the room price was a wonderful breakfast buffet, with the opportunity to eat on the patio, also overlooking the beach. We also enjoyed a cocktail on the patio before dinner one evening, complete with complimentary hors d'ouevres (bruschetta, peanuts, chips, and olives). On both occasions, the wait staff was attentive and friendly. Our room was small-ish, but clean and well-appointed with newer bathroom fixtures. My one complaint is that the mattress was quite firm -- if you are used to a cushy pillow top mattress, you will notice a difference. When we checked out, we were again impressed with the efficiency and professionalism of the staff. The only other potential drawback of the Residence Hotel is that there is not a pool -- This was fine for us, as we likely would not have used it even if there was one, but good to know if a pool is something that is important to you. Overall, we highly recommend the Residence Hotel and would definitely stay there again if we are lucky enough to find ourselves in Amalfi again anytime soon :)

This hotel is very old - originally a merchant's house, and has recently been renovated. The foyer and bar/ dining area on the first floor are spacious and rather impressive. We really enjoyed meeting for drinks in the evening on the terrace overlooking the sea- the service was great , with complimentary nibbles. Breakfast there was also excellent- a wide variety of choices. The staff were very friendly, welcoming and helpful.

Friendly, clean, comfortable hotel by the entrance to beautiful Amalfi.

The room was large with a gorgeous view of the Mediterranean. From our balcony we could see the cozy beach, a mini roundabout surveilled by the expressive, courteous and tolerant urban police. A bit further a small harbor with boats to Positano and Capri.

Breakfast was served on the beautiful terrace by kind and attentive staff who would learn your taste in coffee at the first order. Fresh fruit as well as delicious local pastries were part of a generous buffet.

Front desk staff were ready to assist and provide helpful tips, such as "don't drive to Positano, take the boat and enjoy the sun without having to spend time driving the curvy coastline or looking for expensive parking".

After three nights there we sailed to Capri for two nights and returned to the Residence Hotel in Amalfi for one more night before heading back to Naples airport. Our friend at the front desk received us with the warmest familiar Bentornati!

Room Tip: The larger rooms have smaller balconies. The not so large rooms facing the Mediterranean have balco...
