“Best room, best view, best hosts”
Reviewed September 18, 2012

Definitely stay at Auditorium Rooms! 3-4 days is a good minimum length of time, using Ravello as your home base for exploring the Amalfi coast. But you may want to stay longer, as this room is a wonderful place to spend a lazy morning. The room was our favorite (out of 7 places that we stayed thorough cities and small towns in central Italy). It's nicely decorated in blue, white, and gold, and the bathroom is lovely with little blue tiles and elegant shower fixtures. The bed was probably the most comfortable we found (in general beds in Italy are very hard, and it's something that doesn't get mentioned in reviews - this bed was still plenty firm enough for people who like firm beds, but it was a bit more forgiving than the typical bed we found). The view can't be beat. Seriously, even as you explore the area you'll have a hard time finding a better view (the only place that tops it is Villa Cimbrone - pronounced "Chim-brone-neh"). The balcony overlooks a steep terraced hillside, with a good bit of coastline and picturesque houses spread out at the bottom. It's lovely at night, lovely when misty, lovely when clear out, etc, you really can't go wrong. When we were there, there were some workers down below sifting rocks from the dirt and sending the rocks downhill by donkey caravan, along the steep stone footpath. Four donkeys on a rope loaded up with rocks, and two little dogs running along. An amazing old-world scene.
Breakfast here is great. One of the best we had in Italy. Italians aren't big on breakfast, and they don't do savory stuff for breakfast, mostly just a pastry and coffee. So it's unusual but this place includes a hot grilled ham and cheese for breakfast, which really hit the spot for me. Most of the croissants you'll find in Italy are not worth eating in my opinion, however this breakfast includes a lovely warm-from-the-oven flaky croissant. They include some tasty "bisquite" cookies in your room in case you get munchies during the day - snag some nutella from breakfast and toss these in your bag for a great snack.
Perhaps the very best part of Auditorium Rooms is the hosts, two twin brothers who are incredibly handsome, sweet, and delighted to help you in every way. Both Marco and Pasquale speak excellent English (Pasquale has the best comprehension so if you have a very complex question, maybe direct it to him). They both are available by cell phone throughout the day, so if you run into trouble during your sightseeing and want advice, they are happy to help. Overall, Auditorium Rooms is an excellent value - it's affordable in a region that can be exorbitantly expensive.

The only downside of staying in Ravello is that the bus down to Amalfi is somewhat unreliable, and you have to walk to the far side of town (10-15 minutes) to catch it. We worked around this problem by taking the red open-top Ravello sightseeing bus instead - it stops quite close by, operates more reliably, and is only 3 Euro (double the price of the other bus but worth it instead of walking and waiting!). It only comes once an hour and doesn't run in the evenings, though. A cab to or from Amalfi is 40 Euro, too much for just us but twice we shared a 7- or 8-person cab with other frustrated tourists who were tired of waiting for the bus. With 8 people it's only 5 Euro each.

We swam at Atrani (just before Amalfi on the bus), the place where the locals go, and also at Positano (take the ferry to get there). Both beaches were lovely, but very pebbly so you might want water shoes for getting in and out of the water. It's fantastic swimming. The temperature was perfect - chilly to get in at first but once you're in you can easily swim for 45 minutes without getting chilled. The water here is very salty so it's bouyant and I felt that it was easier to swim far out into deeper water without getting tired. Some of the best swimming I've experienced.

We stayed at the Auditorium Rooms in June and loved every moment of it. Pasquale and Marco were great: from the first contact, to picking us up from the bus stop, to breakfast on the patio, tips on where to eat, what to see and what to do, and taking us back to the bus stop! A 'must do' is the walk from Ravello to Amalfi! The rooms are spotless - all maintained by the twin brothers! The view is incredible and the serenity and tranquility were soul-southing! We travelled throughout Italy and Sicily and this was definitely one of the highlights! This was a very homely and professional experience and can be recommended to the greatest extent!!! If possible, we will definitely return to this paradise!

This accomodation was one of our highlights during our time travelling through Italy. Unfortunately we stayed just one night in this great B&B. We enjoyed the fantastic view, the beautiful room and the nice service. We would like to come back in some years and stay some more days.

My husband and I stayed at Auditorium Rooms to celebrate our 10 year anniversary. We wanted to have a quiet, laid-back Italian vacation. Auditorium Rooms was even better than we imagined. We had an idea of what it would be like from the pictures. The pictures are very accurate, but there is no way a picture can capture the real beauty! I still dream about having breakfast on our patio! Pasquale and Marco are the best! They helped us line up meals and a boating excursion. You definitely feel like you are part of their family for the time you are there. And the breakfast is great! You cannot beat homemade croissants every morning! If you are considering staying in a B&B on the Amalfi Coast you should look no further. Auditorium Rooms is great and Ravello is amazing, like a slice of heaven. We were there in August and there was no crowd! I have told all my friends if they want an Italian Vacation this is the place to go and Auditorium Rooms is the place to stay!!!

Side note: I feel like I have to share this for anyway planning an Amalfi coast Vacation. The highlight of our trip was the day we rented boat. Pasquale lined this up for us before we arrived. The website is www.boatsamalfi.it. It is a must do!!!

Pasquale and Marco, we have not stopped singing your praises. Thank you for helping make our vacation so wonderful!

There were four of us who went to Ravello for a wedding in July. We never expected such a beautiful villa - it was exactly as pictured and had every amenity you could want. We received a heartwarming welcome from Pasquale and Marco who helped us with everything from ordering groceries from the local store (who delivered) to restaurants, boat excursions, taxis etc. etc. etc. They were fantastic. If you are going to Ravello I highly recommend this absolutely magnificent villa with breathtaking views. We can't wait to go back. Thank you Marco and Pasquale for a memorable holiday.

We have stayed in Caruso and Sasso in Ravello and wanted to try something more local and much less $$$. WOW WOW WOW!!! Location is a good as it gets, your terrace is overlooking the sea. The B & B is new, spotless and furnished with a lovely and stylish mix of old and new. The bathroom is wonderful with an excellent shower and window with view that will take your breath away. Lovely sheets and a bed so comfortable you hate to get up. All that being said, the hosts, Maro and Pasquale gave the place heart and treat you like family. They were there to help with anything and everything and made the most lovely breakfast that is served in your room. We can't wait to go back, a true find on the Amalfi Coast.

Room Tip: either room is great.

My husband and I enjoyed 3 nights at Auditorium Rooms while on our honeymoon. The rooms are beautiful, very modern and clean, with the most beautiful view of the coast and the sea. Marco and Pasquale are wonderful and the most gracious and warm hearted hosts one could ask for. We had breakfast served on our patio each morning and they gave us tips of where to eat and a map of how to hike to the beach. Marco assisted us in booking our day tour to Pompei. Pasquale assisted us with getting our luggage from Ravello to Atrani, where we spent our last 2 nights at his parents' B&B, La Scogliera. We will definitely return to Ravello and Auditorium Rooms when we return to Italy.

Marco & Pasquale - Thank you so much for everything! Dale and I had such a great time getting to know you and thank you so much for taking us to the party in Scala. We feel we made such great friendships with you both. Our camera SD card is damaged and we have a friend trying to recover our photos, so hopefully we can email some photos to you soon! ~Pamela
