“Perfect getaway! Stop looking and stay here!”
Reviewed September 2, 2013

My wife and I spent the first week of our honeymoon at the Residence Hotel. It was truly a magnificent experience. Staff was friendly, and did everything possible to make our stay a good one. We never felt like a burden to them, and they were more than happy to arrange transport from the airport to the hotel, make dinner reservations for us while we were out on the beach, and seemingly anything else that we could have wanted. Francesco and Vittorio at the front desk were excellent.
We had a sea view room with a balcony and the views were stunning. The rooms were immaculate and were attended to regularly. A nice touch was having our sheets turned down at the end of the day before bed time. Breakfast was excellent, offering both North American and Italian items, served on a terrace with sea views.
The hotel is located in the centre of the city, close to the beach, restaurants, and ferries. The beaches are pebbly, but there are loungers for rent along the shore. Staying in Amalfi is a great choice as well, as it is relatively close to all other attractions along the coast (Positano, Capri, Sorrento, etc.)

Room Tip: Sea view is worth any extra cost.

Hotel Residence was perfectly located so that you could easily access the ferries, restaurants, buses and beach. The rooms are in very good condition, beds are comfortable, sound proofed and have shutters so you do not hear noise from the street or other rooms. I was facing the beach with a balcony in a deluxe room and loved it!

The concierge team went above and beyond their duties and ensured their guests left with a smile on their face. They are very friendly and happy to help in any way they can.

In leading up to my stay, they were very quick to respond to emails and booked restaurants for us. If you are getting the train to Salerno, I recommend getting them to organise a transfer form the train station to the hotel.

First off, we felt Amalfi was a great "base point" for our Amalfi coast vacation. Spent 6 nights here and we easily got to Positano, Ravello, Sorrento (longer trek). The hotel is also right across from the beach, the town square, and very close to the bus and ferry terminals. Staff goes out of their way to make your stay comfortable. We stayed in a Superior Room and it was very spacious. Turn down service was a nice pleasant touch to the hotel. Would definitely return here again the next time we are in Amalfi!

Hotel Residence in Amalfi is a place that one only dreams about. The perfect view from the room's balcony (room on the second floor) was overlooking the water with a very active square. There were comfortable beds and unbelievable service by the entire hotel staff. It seemed like a family-run operation. The breakfast terrace was manned by very helpful waiters. By the 4th day, they would actually set a table for us actually expecting us. One day, my wife wanted a banana but they did not have any. A waiter took it upon himself the next day to set a table with a banana on a plate waiting for us to arrive. We also would stop on the terrace for drinks before and after we would go out for the night. When our stay was over the waiters said they looked forward to seeing us again some day.We(3 couples) also had a one in a million situation arise. It was June 27 which we found out was The Feast of St Andrew. We saw hundreds of people gathering by the water and the streets at night were decorated with many lights, statues, bands and processions. Our hotel balcony was the central point to observe all that was happening. We also discovered that there were to be fireworks at around midnight. All of us have seen many fireworks displays but none were ever like this. The fireworks started and we observed that they were being shot directly across the street from us. So they were basically directly over us on our balcony and they were lighting up the entire sky. Never has any of us seen such a scene. For a half hour, it was one unreal scene after another until the finale which incredibly was even better. Thank you, Hotel Residence, for an experience that will be with us forever.

Room Tip: Second floor overlooking the water was perfect!

We spent four delightful days in this charming and perfectly located hotel. The room was lovely and very clean, with a a balcony on which to sip a cool drink, or a glass of limoncello and admire the stunning view unfolding before our eyes. The hotel is conveniently located near all modes of transportation, excellent restaurants and the beach. We had a room facing the sea, and although it was very busy below, the windows had such excellent shutters that you could not hear anything of the hubub on the street at night. Breakfast was very good with great cappucino and plenty of choices to stimulate any appetite. Best of all, it was served on a beautiful terrace with a gorgeous view. Lastly, we were very impressed with the service; both in the breakfast room and the reception. The staff was very helpful in all ways and we thank especially,Francesco, for his guidance. We cannot wait to return.

Room Tip: Room #15 has a small but lovely balcony with a great view.
