“Go for it”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 4, 2011

Good hotel for a 3-star rating. Not the most elegant or luxurious, but definitely a decent choice. Very cosy, home-like atmosphere. Nothing to complain about. Central location is unbeatable, view from the room was fantastic, just over the main square. Staff was kind and helpful. Lovely breakfast.

While this was rated as a four star, it was certainly NOT. Room was uncomfortable, shower was dirty and small, not pleasant.............

Staff were friendly and offered information about things to do. Simple but good breakfast. Good thing about visiting in winter is that you tend to get seaview rooms. Although church bells could be heard, the location was very convenient, with good transport via SITA buses to other adjacent areas like Positano, Atriani, Minori or Ravello. The only thing is that for those with heavy luggage, you need to carry them up a flight of stairs (about 15-20 steps) before you reach the lobby. Also, the entrance to the hotel is a restricted area so it takes a 2-minute walk to cross a road to reach it.

Hotel Fontana is fantastic value for money, my room was tiny but with such a great location and view who would care!! Luana the lovely receptionist was so helpful and knowledgeable and was always only too willing to assist, with tours, maps, local info etc. The breakfasts were great, the location was fantastic, only a short walk to get the ferrries to Capri, Positano or the buses and the tabacchi was on the corner for purchasing bus tickets. I was on my own and I was happy to stroll around Amalfi at night to choose a restaurant in which to dine or to get a gelato or a glass of wine and I felt completely at ease. Great hotel, great location and I would stay there again. I highly recommend Hotel Fontana.

My brother and I spent 5 weeks travelling in Europe and this was by far the worst hotel we stayed in and it was recommended by our travel agent and listed in the CIT Travel brochure as three star.
The room we were originally showed was small and the beds looked like camp beds. We upgraded to a junior suite for an additional EU100. The room was larger but faced west so was hot and stuffy day and night. The air conditioner did not work, and as our room opened onto the bus terminal and the main road along the coast, if we opened the doors at night we could not sleep for noise. We asked the staff to fix the airconditioner and they just shrugged and implied that there was nothing they could do. The beds were extremely uncomfortable and the shower was dirty.
To top this off the breakfast was the worst of all. The same 11 different cakes appeared daily for the four days we were there. They were not refrigerated at night. Just left out on the the breakfast table. There was one cereal, Cornflakes. A cheap ham, similar to devon. Salami. Bread rolls. Stale croissants stuffed with jam. If you wanted milk the staff brought the carton over and poured it on your cereal for you. The coffee was luke warm.
The only redeeming feature was the receptionist who went out of the way to help. This hotel should not be included in the travel brochures as three star as in my opinion it was more 1-2 star.

We picked this hotel based on the good reviews it had. The people that worked at the hotel were rude and not in the least bit helpful. They had no information about sights in the area and could not answer questions about weather reports. The room was run down and the furniture old and dumpy. There was no coffee or tea service in the room and no water for the guests. The breakfast area was very crowded and the selections were sweet cakes that were put out day after day. Our room was on the street and was noisy day and night. I would not recommend this hotel to an ENEMY!

What a lovely little hotel right on the front of Amalfi, with everything nearby. The beach was 150 meters away and the centre of town meters away. Excellent little hotel, friendly staff and a classic, continental breakfast, with great coffee..
Truely recommended, family run business and friendly as well.
