“Great location and price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

We only stayed here 1 night as we moved along the Amalfi coast and were very happy we chose this quaint little hotel hidden down a lane way off the main shopping strip. It was very clean, close to buses and ferries and the main church. Breakfast was great and staff, particularly Antonella went out of their way to please. I would definitely recommend this place if you want a nice comfortable room at a good price amongst the action of Amalfi, however If you want 5 star this is not for you.

Amafi itself is a little jewel on the coast. L'Antico Convitto made our stay there very special. The location in the centre of town is perfect. The rooms are spacious and the rooftop terrace is a magical place to have breakfast overlooking the blue water.
But the staff here are the standout. Nothing is too much trouble. Help with trays to the rooftop with extra coffee for breakfast, printouts of train timetables with the most convenient times circled, bookings for tours and events - always with a genuine smile.
Would recommend again and again.

Room Tip: The family room is huge.

What a great place! Tucked up a very uninspiring alley off the main street (blink and you will miss it) this place is an oasis of grace and charm in a very busy town. Literally minutes walk from the main piazza, you could be anywhere. The staff are really friendly too, and very eager to help. We spent 3 nights here. Initially we had a 'junior suite' (very nice by the way!) as our room was not available, and we had to change the next day. However, the staff moved all our stuff while we were out (into another equally lovely room) and when we got back there was a lovely bowl of fruit as a 'thank you' - we also got a bottle of limoncello on our departure. Nice touches. Breakfast is great, lot of variety and you can have it on the roof terrace if you wish - wasps can be a pain though if you go outside so make you own choice. Tip - you will never find it if you arrive by bus, boat etc - just give them a ring and they will send a porter down with a little buggy to pick you up (allow a bit of notice - find somewhere for a coffee while you are waiting!). Also - the little supermarket by the front door is great for drinks and picnic stuff, and the greengrocer near the entrance to the alley does very nice fruit.

Room Tip: seems most are very nice - the junior suites are bigger. Most, if not all will have a limited view b...

We have just recently returned from Italy having spent 2 nights at L'Antico Convitto. What a fantastic hotel! We arrived on the bus from Salerno and the hotel is located just a 5 minute walk, just off the main street leading up from the Cathedral.

If you're looking to stay somewhere away from the busy, and sometimes noisy streets of Amalfi, then perhaps this hotel isn't for you. If however you are looking to stay somewhere slap bang in the middle of everything, then Hotel L'Antico Convitto is the place!

We were made to feel very welcome by every single member of staff we met - they were all very friendly and chatty. In particular, Antonella who runs everything by day and Ferdinando who looks after the hotel by night, are both lovely.

The rooms were spotlessly clean, they had everything we needed - aircon, a safe, comfortable beds. I have read some reviews in which some people have said that the rooms were quite small - we hardly spent any time in our room (apart from sleeping) so this was never an issue.

Possibly the hotels' best feature is their roof terrace - this overlooks the sea and beautiful church tower. On both evenings, before going out for dinner we sat up there for a couple of hours with a bottle of wine purchased from the supermarket right next door, just watching the night draw in - it was wonderful! The staff at the hotel were most accomodating and gave us wine glasses and ice bucket to take up there.

The breakfasts were also good, there was a good range of pastries, cheeses, hams etc to choose from. You can even take a tray and enjoy your breakfast upstairs on the roof terrace!

I loved this hotel and part of the reason for this is because the staff here are so helpful and friendly. I holiday in southern Italy almost every year and will probably return for a short stay in Amalfi. When I do, I will most certainly be staying at L'Antico Convitto again.

This place was great. The room was large and clean. The breakfast was delicious. The staff here were wonderful and extremely helpful. They helped figure out the best way to get us back to Naples taking the ferry and train (a 1.25 hour trip) versus taking the bus to Sorrento and then a train to Naples (a 4 hour trip). The rooftop terrace was beautiful. Amalfi was a great little town.

We stayed at Hotel L'Antico Convitto for two nights in August 2013, the hotel staff went out of their way to make it a comfortable stay and we had a great time. Great room, a lovely roof terrace and a perfect location just off the main street in Amalfi.
