I've now stayed in at least five hotels in Ravello and would put this one as my second favourite (first being The Caruso, but that is reserved for special occasions!). The people are extremely friendly and helpful. We asked for tea/coffee facility to be put in our room and this was granted immediately. The view is stunning, but then a lot of hotels in Ravello do have the same view. What sets it apart for me was the wonderful breakfast. As we were the first guests of the new season (and for one night the only people in the hotel!) we had our breakfast delivered to our room. There was enough to feed four! pastries, croissants, cake, fruit, yoghurt, juices etc., We then asked for mushroom omelettes for the following morning, expecting only to receive that, however, we still got all the above AND the omelettes! Also the room was lovely and clean with an extremely comfortable large bed. I'm sure that you would not be disappointed with this hotel, however, only one small downside, the infinity pool is very small and certainly you would not be able to sunbathe around it. If that is not so important to you, the I would definitely highly recommend this charming hotel.
