“Wonderful staff and most amazing views ever!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2013

We really liked the front deskman here and the restaurant staff. Breakfast was good with fresh croissants and we loved the yogurt and the cappuccino!
Room was small and very basic, a bit dated, but with an amazing view. Double bed was unfortunately the 2 beds pushed together thing, which made me somehow end up sleeping wedged between the 2 beds and with bad neck pain the next day!
But the view is the best you can get and at this price range I would definitely recommend this hotel. We had basic/smallest room.. I would suggest booking the next room size up.
Very easy walking distance to everything and front desk gave us excellent hiking directions for the hike we took to another town, and happily booked our car reservation for the next day to Pompeii!

We spent two nights in Ravello as part of our little tour of the Amalfi Coast; I picked Hotel Parsifal after reviewing Ravello hotels on Trip Advisor and it did not disappoint. Antonio and his family are so friendly, helpful and courteous and the hotel itself is perfectly situated for arriving by car or bus, withing easy walking distance of the main square and overlooking the sea and villages below.We had a gorgeous, spacious room with our own private patio area We were in Ravello in early April so there wasn't much going on but the hotel has such an amazing view from its lovely balcony that we were happy to sit out and enjoy the peace and relaxation. There's a nice little cafe/wine bar that opened up recently s few steps in front of the hotel if you don't feel like walking into the center. We definitely hope to go back!

Room Tip: Not sure if all the rooms have views so request a view, it's amazing!

We were a party of 13, 7 adults and six children. It took us some time to choose the right place for a week's vacation.
We chose through travelers' tips in Trip advisor.
What a great choice. Antonio the owner welcomed us in a family way and indeed we felt like part of a family there. He was always helpful and warm to all of us.
The hotel is situated in a great place with beautiful views and can be a base for short trips to Amalfi' Positano Capri and more.
Especially recommended is the walk(about 70 minutes), going down to Minori .
The food is typical Italian, and a very good one.
The hotel has just 17 rooms which adds to the intimate atmosphere.
In the photo I added you can see how happy we were there.

During our week in Italy we have been to many nice hotels, but this one has a real charm to it.
The location is wonderful- a few minutes walk from the town center. The view from the rooms and the main yard is breath taking.
The service we got from Antonio and Leonardo, the owners, was impeccable - attentive and always going the extra mile...
We spent two nights in two different rooms: the larger suite was practically for "honey mooners": big, comfortable, with a lot of charm and attention to tiny details. The smaller room in the main building was comfortable and cozy, but if a tiny shower is a deal breaker for you-order the larger room.
Thank you Antonio for the great stay!!! See you next time, hopefully the three of us ;-)

I have returned to this gem of a hotel, there is just no better place on the Amalfi coast than this hotel. The Mansi family runs it and they are by far the most gracious host I have encountered to date. The hotel is in Ravello, with a gorgeous view of the Mediterranean. It is well worth booking a room with a view. I can only rave about the food at this hotel. Luciano is a fabulous chef, his squid ink spaghetti (hand done in the hotel), with mixed seafood is to die for. He was gracious enough to give me a tour of the kitchen. It is spotless, you can eat off the floor. My personal favorite is pasta vongole, paste with clams, cherry tomatoes and basil. Yummm! Luciano also does delicious local fish. Grilled, sprinkled with salt and a drizzle of local olive oil. I was happy to spend my days on the terrace, overlooking the ocean, and either eating or thinking of my next meal. That is what Italy is all about!

Room Tip: Pick on of the rooms that look out over the ocean

I work for a TV production company in London, and we were filming in Ravello in November 2012. The Hotel Parsifal had been recommended to us by a colleague of mine, and I have to say it was a fantastic decision to stay there!
There were 22 of us in the party, so we booked out the entire hotel. From the moment we arrived, Antonio and his family made us all feel very welcome. Nothing was too much trouble for them. We had so much camera equipment with us, which wasn't a problem as we were able to store it in one of the guest rooms.
We also had our meals at the hotel, which were great. The kitchen was always flexible & able to cater to our needs.
Antonio even let us film in the hotel, which helped us enormously, especially as the setting is so beautiful.
I would definitely recommend the hotel to anyone - and I look forward to returning for pleasure, rather than with work!

Room Tip: The rooms at the back of the hotel have spectacular views of the Amalfi coast

We stayed at the Hotel Parsifal for just one night whilst touring the Amalfi coast. There was not a lot of choice of hotels open during the winter, but we are so pleased that this hotel was available. Upon arrival we entered the enchanting garden area which gives you an amazing birdseye view of the the Amalfi coastline. We were warmly welcomed and shown to our room which was situated just down some stairs from the reception. It was clean, comfortable and and opened out onto a large, covered, terraced balcony, which had comfortable chairs, a bench and a table, and offered stunning views. Had the weather been better (it was January) I would have happily spent all day sitting there. Ravello itself was pretty much closed, although it was nice to explore out of season. We ate at the hotel and the service was excellent, we were also given complimentary glasses of Champagne as it was my birthday (noted from my passport details - thank you). It was a cold evening and a portable heater was kindly provided next to our table. The breakfast provided was more than sufficient to set us up for the day. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend for location, views and service.
