“Wonderful staff & hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013

If you want all of the ambiance of the Amalfi Coast, this is the hotel for you. From the moment we arrived the friendliness and efficiency of Francesco set the tone for our entire stay. He welcomed us like we were long-lost family instead of first time guests. What a gem he is. Our room faced the Mediterranean Sea and was in the center of the town. Walking distance to great food, shopping and the famous basilica. Great staff, wonderful breakfasts every day, immaculate room and grounds. Wish I was there again right now.

Room Tip: Be sure to ask for a room facing the sea and a walk-in shower.

The hotel was great - perfectly situated in the centre of town, next to the beach and the main piazza. Room was beautiful, spotlessly clean and with a lovely, safe balcony. The breakfast was delicios, lots of choice and with an amazing view over the beach.
I travelled alone with my 2 1/2 year old son but had nothing to worry about as the hotel staff were extremely helpful, nothing was too much trouble, and they were very child-friendly. The only negative was the lack of a swimming pool, but with the beach less than a minute's walk away this was not a problem.
Would not hesitate to go back to Amalfi and stay in this hotel and would firmly recommend it to others.

"Nous n'irons plus jamais:we never go again" (it's just a ballad, from Hervé Vilard, a French singer, songwriter) But once you visited Capri, you will come again. It's a beautiful Island on the coast of Amalfi. This year after visiting France(aussi un pays magnifique & de découverte), I went to Italy, to make several hikingtours along the Amalfi coast. My residence was Amalfi: "Hotel Residence". A beautiful building with enough facilities, magnificent view across the sea and a good art of cooking. N'oubliez jamais (that's what Jo Cocker said)

This hotel is a wonderful mix of old and new charm. The rooms are beautiful with ocean facing balconies. It has a fantastic terrace overlooking the water for breakfast or for drinks in the afternoon. You can happily sit and watch all the goings on from this wonderful balcony.
The staff are fantastic and the whole place is spotlessly clean.
The location is perfect with the beach directly in front and the piazza, church and shops just around the corner. The front rooms are sound proof which is wonderful.

Room Tip: The front rooms have balconies overlooking the water.

We checked into the Hotel Residence and 2 days later, we noticed bug bites all over our bodies. We checked and bugs were everywhere. We brought this up to the hotel, who quickly dismissed this as mosquitoes and then told them we probably brought them with us. These were no mosquitoes! They were tiny little bed bugs you could literally see crawling all over the bedding. They refused to change our room, our sheets or mattress. They only gave us a plug in inspect repellent, which was absolutely ineffective. Francisco and the rest of the staff was very rude and dismissive throughout our stay. My husband had to shave his head to get rid of the bed bugs and we left the majority of our clothing at the hotel when we left. After he did, he shook his head on the counter and tons of bugs dropped out. It was like a horror movie.
What was most disturbing was the hotel's blase attitude about bed bugs, customer service or the sanitary conditions of the hotel. The policy of having to leave your key at the front desk in full view on a high traffic street is not exactly comforting so we had to carry our I-pads, etc... with us. Also, it made it inconvenient for charging electronics and cell phones b/c the electricity comes on only when the key is in the slot. Could not have been more disappointed in this hotel. I would steer clear of Hotel Residence. It was a horrible experience

Great location and view. Breakfast is good. Our room was ocean front, few steps from the marina or bus station. Hotel is very cute and has a lot of antique details that make it interesting. Amalfi is beautiful, but you don't need more than half day or a day there.

Room Tip: We had ocean view room and it was great. They have room service coming to make your bed before you g...

The unbeatable location right next to the center of Amalfi, right in front of the beach! Great hospitality! The room was clean, spacious and comfortable. Amazing views of Amalfi town and the coast, breakfast on the terrace with a wonderful sea view and attentive service. The room was clean, spacious and comfortable. The views from our room and the balcony were incredible! Staff was extremely helpful to show us directions, help with trips, etc. Thanks to Francesco and Vittorio that made our stay one of the best experiences ever!

Room Tip: Room #7 has incredible views and 2 balconies
