“Perfect classic hotel”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

Stayed 5 nights in October 2013. The location was perfect for us. Right in the epicenter of Amalfi. Loved the busy scene with buses, ferries, cars, motorinos and tourists with the beautiful background of beach, harbour and the Mediterranean. Nice big balcony, actually two in our room. Had the doors open every night but the heavy and dark blue curtains did a good job reducing street noise and light. Really nice bathroom with Jacuzzi. Good breakfast buffet served outside on the covered terrace. The hotel is recently renovated and what a good job they did. Nice classic style. Very friendly staff and with excellent local knowledge. The only small glitch was that the Wi-Fi didn't cover our balcony.
Will definitely come back when we are in that incredibly beautiful part of Italia

The location is very central and in front of the beach.
The room was very clean and the bathroom was big and modern.
The bed was comfortable.
The breakfast in the terrace is very nice with sea view.
One guy of the reception (I don't remenber the name) has a lack of patience while explaining how the parking works.
You have to park your car in a payed parking garage from a walking distance of 300 meters (5 min): 20 Euros per night.

We ended our vacation in Amalfi with a great stay at this Hotel. We had a corner room with a large terrace with table and chairs on one side and a balcony overlooking the street on the other. Both sides had great views of the ocean and the town. It was extremely clean and the service was excellent. The outside breakfast was very good in a pleasant atmosphere. It is within short walking distance of shopping, restaurants and the water.

Room Tip: We had the corner room on the second floor; #15 I think.

Just came back from a 3 day stay. Well situated with views of the sea and nice terrace for breakfast (although the breakfast was very mediocre). The bathroom was the smallest of any I've ever had in Europe and no little touches in the room like a waste basket, water, tissues. Did not like the set-up where you leave your room key at the front desk when you go out for the day and it is in "Full Display" of any one entering. There were at least 3 different front desk gentlemen during out stay and wouldn't have known me from Adam when I ask for our room key?!?!?!

This hotel is stunning, located directly across from the beach and marina. We loved our stay here and would like to thank the front desk staff for helping us figure out the bus from Amalfi to Salerno. Breakfast is also great, big selection of food on a pretty terrace! I would recommend staying here.

Just had 2 weeks in Amalfi - a wonderful destination for a quiet relaxing holiday. Stayed first in Hotel Marina Riviera then Hotel Residence. Both are on the front and close to the centre of Amalfi, which suited us – many hotels along the Amalfi coast will be isolated, but we could walk around the town, have a choice of different restaurants every night, get a boat to Capri, etc.

From our experience, the Marina Riviera scores so much more than the Residence – we would return to Marina Riviera, but not the Residence. To list the little things that made the difference: at the Marina Riviera we had a bottle of water in our room every day; a bowl of fruit when we arrived; a box of tissues; draws with handles; very attentive staff; a good choice of breads and croissants (that never ran out) and eggs cooked to order; and of course a rooftop pool. None of these applied to the Residence, although it is also a 4 star hotel. The Residence was not terrible, but missed the little touches. Because of the timing of our bookings we paid less for the Marina Riviera (early booking) than the Residence. We had a Double Room at Marina Riviera and Deluxe Double at Residence.

The reception manager's (most of the time he's at the desk) is very not nice, not tourist friendly, acting arrogant and Antipathetic. Contrary to all the hotels we've been, check out time is already at 11.
There is no hotel parking. If you are coming by car you have to park in a public lot just about 10 minutes' walk from the hotel at a cost of 20 euros per day. If you leave the parking lot after the 12th time you start to pay for each additional hour.
The hotel's location is good and very centralizes. Nice breakfast, less than expected.
The hotel itself looks good, the room was fine, but was a bit stuffy and there is enough lighting.
For the price we paid we expected to get much from the hotel and a much better attitude.
