Our confirmed booking was al of a sudden not valid, and that on the day we were arriving! After phoning, we were told that " there was a problem" with another arrival. Earlier the same day (2pm) when we arrived, Sonia told us (telephone) they are not ready for us, but will be @ 4pm. When we arrived at the place we were told to park our car @ 5 pm it turnred out that it was actually the parking area of another hotel, and that we would have to find sommewhere else to park. Fair enough, but the problem was that parking in the street meant we would have to carry our baggage over a km to the "lift" and leave our car in the road (Main road- Amalfi Coast drive).
It was after finding a parking space that I phoned Sonia to get clear instructions on how to proceed to get down to the hotel that she informed me that they were having a problem with our booking. This, after she told me two hours previously that they will be ready at 4pm. She promised to phone me back in 5minutes. I am still waiting.
We booked the room for a three night stay because of the romantic setting that, we felt would be the ideal close of a wonderfull trip through Italy. The trip was fantastic, marred only by this incident.
