We have just returned from Italy and the Hotel Rufolo was one of our stops.
We had a very large suite with a balcony overlooking the Rufolo villa and gardens. This accommodation was very good. One evening we sat out and watched a magnificent fireworks display. The front desk reminded us that this was going to happen.
The pool looks very inviting until you realise it is too cold to enter.
We ate at their restaurant and can honestly say the food was delicious. Unfortunately we were the only couple in the dining room along with a large party of around 20 persons.
When they departed we realised that the room was very impersonal and cold. It definitely needs some designer touches.
At breakfast the first day we were not made to feel very welcome by the young girl who barely said a word.
The next morning she offered us a choice of coffees which was the only time she did so.
A somewhat disappointing attitude. This property has potential but it is lacking the small touches.

We spent three nights here. I would not have chosen such an expensive place, but we booked at last minute and had few options. Getting to the hotel in the car was an adventure. Out GPS took us to the main square in Ravello and I could not believe we could go any further. The hotel is up a very narrow street lined with tourist shops, then you have to drive through a tunnel which is hardly wider than the car. Beautiful location, nice remodeled air conditioned room on the second floor with a balcony with a magnificant view. Friendly staff. Decent, but not great breakfast.

Room Tip: Be sure to get an updated, remodeled room.

Hotel Rufolo has a great location in the heart of Ravello. Beautiful views and clean, comfortable rooms, albeit a bit outdated and on the expensive side, although most hotels in the Amalfi coast area are pricey. I agree with some of the other reviewers that the front desk staff is a bit cold, but I didn’t find them so unfriendly that we wouldn’t stay here again. This hotel has free parking, which is a great plus, especially for Ravello. We had a hard time finding the hotel once we got to Ravello, even though we had a navigation system. Here’s a tip if you are driving: Keep going after you go through the tunnel and it looks like you are driving on a pedestrian street. You are not. You are forced to take a left and drive down and even narrower street and through another small, extremely narrow tunnel with walls lined with the local pottery (hanging from wire hangers) from a shop nearby. It does not look like you should be driving there but it is the way to the hotel’s parking lot.

We booked this hotel based on the promise of a spectacular view, and we were not disappointed. However, the first room they placed us in had mold on the wall near the door. Whether that was due to heavy rains and high humidity or simply neglect I am not sure. We immediately requested a different room which was accommodated and had a better view as well! The hotel is an easy walk to the town for shopping and dining & we chased down the local gelato put-put truck which I strongly recommend. During the late evening we were treated to a spectacular lighting and thunder storm which made the view even more memorable.

My wife and I were in Ravello doing some sightseeing and were looking for a spot for lunch.

So we went up the Hotel Rufolo, and they were close to closing down until dinner time. (Hard to get used to that difference).

Anyway, they welcomed us as long as we didn't want a "big" meal and so we each ordered a single dish for lunch. My wife ordered white fish and I ordered sea bass. Both dishes were outstanding! So far, the best we have had in Italy.

We would definitely recommend this restaurant@

The hotel has certainly one of the most beautiful locations of whole Italy - with a marvellous view over the Amalfitan coast. I was there in march, the only guest, the hotel was not heated, it was chilly at breakfast,whch was minimalistic even by Italian standards. I had a strange one-bed room, 7 meters long, 2 meters large, but... with a terrace at least 25 m2 large overlooking the bay of Ravello....all in all avery good stay.

this is a hotel worth visiting at least once in your life. The location is unique. the staff (Salvatore in reception) was very helpful. The views are a dream. The restaurant is a 5 star restaurant with extreme attention.

Room Tip: Select rooms with view of the Amalfi coast. worth it.
